Excerpt: Impressive technology and operating system. Works like a well-oiled machine. Never considered blackberry until a friend lent me his Z30. Within 2 weeks of trying z30 decided to switch from android (4.3) phone. Never looked back. This smartphone makes me go through daily errands on a whole new level of comfort. No more dropped calls or UI stuttering. No more worries about battery making through a day. Built-in security is great too.
Pros: Terrific user interface on OS 10 (i can only compare to android and iphone), Reception, Impressive battery life, build quality, native support for vpn, webex, documents, seamless integration of google and microsoft services (auto-sync of calendars, contacts, emails), speakers quality, camera, easy switch from android to blackberry using DeviceSwitch, work/personal workspace, great browsing experience with Reader mode
Cons: Camera could use a software update (panorama, manual exposure), at 0% the screen is still too bright at night, mediocre headphones
Summary: After much research I decided to purchase the Z30. The technical specs are great and the phone is smooth. The product arrived exactly as advertised, unlocked and ready to use. Very satisfied with this purchase.
Summary: Unfortunately the phone arrived broken. The SIM card reader is what was broken. The rest of the phone was fine aside from a scratch on the bottom of the phone. I also wish the store had informed me ahead of time that only a return was an option for my situation. I only found that out after the return had been processed. I had asked ahead of time for an exchange, and they confirmed it would be an exchange.
