BlackBerry Z30 Reviews

Amazing phone being killed by Verizon

The Blackberry Z30 is an amazing phone, Excellent battery life with a HD 5 inch screen. One of the most efficient virtual keyboards right out of the box. The phone functions are easy and practical once you spend a little time to learn it. I woud say couple of days and you will be efficient and in a week comfortble with the OS. The browser is AMAZINGLY fast.... dont take my word for it, google it. It also comes with adobe flashplayer which you can turn off or leave on. The size and qualitty of the phone build is amazing. The only problem is how hard Verizon makes it for you to get your hands on the phone. I don't know how they conned Blackberry into the exclusivity, but you cannot buy the phone in stores. Rather, you technicallly can buy them in their stores, but they will have to ship you the phone because they dont stock them. Also if you download the OS 10.2.2 you can access all the big name Androird apps, so that problem is resolving. So the only problem is why are so few people using this phone? I do not know, but I am enjoying everything about the phone.

Quality; battery life, excellent screen, efficient operating system. wonderful keyboard

Still needs more apps.

If you get this phone you will love Blackberry for what they have done.

Great Effort, but is it too little too late?

Solid effort from blackberry, however I think BB10 should have come out quicker. (Don't we all?) It's great to see that battery life, form, and signal strength all come together in the Z30. Audio was ok, not too strong, but not weak like PHONESCOOP review stated. (Maybe they got a prototype demo?)

Navigation could be a bit smoother, no home key? The swiping could throw some people off. Also, more tutorials could be thrown in if Blackberry is ever to win more NEW customers.

GPS is included, pictures are decent, but screen is a bit dim compared to my note 3 and even HTC one Max.

All in all, a solid phone, great for work, but eco system for apps is lacking. Blackberry needs to step this up if they hope to compete with iOS and Android.

I'm happy with the phone and keeping it for work. Easy enough to use with a little practice, battery life and signal work, it's all I could ask for! Mid to High tier, but definitely not a competitor to Note 3 / HTC one max.
