By bikash sadangi | 2 Sep 2016
I am using blackberry z3 for couple of days. I feel proud because I am using one phone that is with limited people. In my surrounding no one has blackberry. Amazing phone. Looking great. I have updated software through computer. Working excellent. Blazing first apps can be downloaded from open source. Running smoothly

At this price band!!!
By Hardik Panchal | 10 Jun 2014
i am not a die hard fan of BB, as of now I did not cam across it. Definitely at this price band, this kind of features, Mind blowing. And this might be like a MOTO E/G/X for Motorola mobiles. Hope it will help to tightened screw in INDIAN market as well as in global. Waiting for the phone to launch in India. Want to be a first buyer in India............Keeping fingures crossed.

Worst in performance best only in outlook!
By Muhammed Riyaaz | 20 Mar 2017
If you need a phone with professional outlook, then it was the best choice to show off in budget model. But the fact is worst to the top performance, poor network connectivity, slow performance, with all worst experience ....etc....

BlackBerry Z3 a mouth watering deal
By Lucky Arora | 19 Jun 2014
It seems that BlackBerry is planning to get back on the track. At this price tag its surely gonna be the best Blackberry deal ever. But there is only one disappointment is the front facing camera, if it would be 2 megapixel then it would be pretty much better product. On the whole I am looking forward to buy it. BEST OF BLACKBERRY

Blackberry z3 worth the money...
By Muh. Ihsaan | 21 May 2014
with spec like that, and the price is lower than USD 200, this Blackberry is worth the money ( i got it at USD 191 / IDR 2.199.000 (indonesia Rupiah) with 5" display, and only 540x960 pixels u wont feel the different between higher resolution display with 1,5 GB RAM u can only runs 4 application in one time, not like the other bb10 phone with 2 GB RAM which can run till 8 apps in one time, still u will not feel the different ... with 5 mb camera and 1,1 mb camera in front, still enough considering the price ... and z3 can run and install android apps directly within the phone the cons, the battery is non removable.. but u don't need to pull out the battery to restart the phone like old BB OS, in BB 10, u just need to press power button and chose restart.. but because the battery is non removable, if you want to change the battery u need to go the service center.. which is not good.. :(
