  • Best in class for Business Users. But still needs improvements in Camera and Apps
    Jayant Morghade (May 30, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    I bought this device in Feb 2014 and I am very happy with the device. Below are few reasons to like or dislike it. Points of Improvements expected from Blackberry. And Pros and Cons of the Device. User Profile: This device is made for users who will use this one 60% for emails and communication and 30% for gaming and 10% for Photography. What I liked in the device: 1) The Blackberry OS 10.2 which has very good Hub integration for all notifications. 2) The button less device for getting back to home page with gestures. 3) Multi tasking and keeping multiple apps working simultaneously. 4) The solid built and feel. In hand the device feels premium. 5) Stereo Speaker output is amazing. Love to listen to music on keeping it on loudspeaker. 6) The music output and headsets are surprisingly very good for a business device. 7) OS apps for business users like built in Office, Zip, Scan etc. 8) Facility of downloading and installing Android Applications from third party app downloaders like OneMobile etc. 9) BATTERY: Amazing battery life. It goes for 1.5 days for me with heavy usage of wifi, FB, Whatsapp and twitter 10) HDMI port: It allows me to connect to my HD TV to see videos/presentations etc. 11) With Blackberry coming up with OS 10.3 there will be improvement in the look and feel. What I dont like in the device: 1) The Blackberry aaps like FB, Twitter, Linkedin is lagging behind as compared to android and iOS apps. 2) The downloaded android apps dont show notifications in the blackberry HUB. 3) Not all Android app are working on this device. For. e.g all banking apps etc. 4) The screen brightness is little dull. It can be improved 5) Camera needs lots of improvement in terms of speed, clarity, and software. 6) Accessories like cover, screen guards, pouch etc is not easily available. The one which are available are very expensive 7) Slow updates from Blackberry for essential apps like Whatsapp, FB, Twitter, BBM and also the OS updates are very slow. Rating: If the camera was good or of 8 MP i would have given 4.5 stars. 4 stars for battery life, multi-tasking, music, emails and built quality. I would recommend this device to business users and not to the multi media savy people who goes for photography and gaming. 1)Screen: 3.5 out of 5 2)Battery: 5 out of 5 3) OS: 3.5 out of 5 4) Camera 2.5 out of 5 5) Apps: 3 out of 5 6) Music and Speakers: 4.5 out of 5 7) Updates (apps and os): 3 out of 5 8) Built Quality: 4.5 out of 5 At this moment this is the best device available from Blackberry and it has a kind of premium feel and will give a satisfaction if you are a Blackberry lover.

  • This is the best phone I've ever owned!
    Marcus E. Harris (Dec 27, 2013) on Amazon
    The Z30 is the best phone I've ever owned -- hands down!It's battery life is amazing, and I've had absolutely zero problems with it since it arrived. It's exceeded every expectation I'd had, and I can't wait to see what else it can do.

  • Excellent Choice
    Orlando (Jan 19, 2014) on Amazon
    I have been a fan of Blackberry devices for many years and very glad I purchased this phone. When reading about the reviews I was not sure of getting a larger phone and was very surprised that overall the footprint of this phone is not very much bigger than the previous model I purchased yet the display and features are great.

  • The best smartphone on the market period
    Gray Delany (Jan 14, 2014) on Amazon
    This is hands down the best smartphone on the market. Do not let the negative news about BlackBerry or a sales rep talk you out of this phone. It is snappy (faster browser than the Iphone 5s and Samsung S4 according to HTML5test,com). This device is a communication machine. It has the best virtual keyboard on the market (effortless one hand typing with flick typing). You can respond to messages without leaving whatever app you are in (as far as I know the only platform where this is possible). You can always check your messages (which are conveniently all in one location) without leaving whatever app you are in by "peeking." Long gone are the days of switching back and forth between apps. This phone keeps you moving.The lack of a home button is liberating. Closing apps and viewing active apps is a breeze. And by no means is this device just meant for communication, if you minimize a Youtube video, it will continue to play in the background. Also, with the new operating system (10.2.1.1925), you can download android apps straight from a third party Google app store. Showtime Anytime, Netflix, Starbucks, Snapchat, and Google Maps all work flawlessly on the phone.Did I mention that the battery routinely lasts me two days? Also, it has a special antenna installed so the phone gets better service in tough cell reception areas. There are many areas around town where I now get perfect service where my old phone used to drop. BBM video with screenshare is also a useful service. Seeing as it is difficult to share large videos, I can BBM video my parents while showing them videos I have taken on my phone. Do yourself a favor and get the BlackBerry Z30. You will not regret it

  • most secure phone with all the features of android and iphone.
    Clarinda S Sioson (Jan 5, 2014) on Amazon
    I have had android galaxy s3 and I phone. Nothing compared when you consider security.why would you buy a phone everyone can hack. Gain access to all your private info. People still don't get a clue until there a victim. Great phone great battery life. More then enough usable apps in there eco system. If the most important man in the world has to use a blackberry in today's cyber world. Why wouldn't you. Follow the sheep follow the asian,soon you'll be walking off a cliff. Never buying into the gimmick phones again.or heavily marketed phones that have made inside deals with carriers.

  • BEST multitasking - email - GPS - Facebook - radio streaming PHONE
    Rose Verdera (Dec 31, 2013) on Amazon
    My favorite thing about this phone is: you don't have to wait for anything!! Swiping up to switch/close programs is the most efficient way to switch between programs. I have this phone docked in my car every day, and I need to switch between my GPS, Pandora, and answering calls frequently. The phone is fast!!

  • Love This phone
    Matthew J. (Dec 18, 2013) on Amazon
    I love this phone. The screen is large and easy to use. There are the apps that i need and more coming every day. I debated between this phone and the S4. Glad i went this route. Not to mention the price. How can you go wrong at $99 for the phone when Verizon is $199. I ended up buying two of these. I was concerned about buying a phone from Amazon as I usually just go into the store and buy it off the shelf. that wasn't an option as Verizon isn't stocking them, only display models. I am glad I took the chance. The phones arrived in 2 days and they were very easy to set up and activate. within 10 mins I had a phone up and running and receiving email. Thank you BlackBerry and Amazon.
