The BlackBerry Z30 is the new flagship handset packing the latest version of the BlackBerry OS, 10.2, into a body that, like its predecessor, lacks a physical keyboard. It packs a 5-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720. The Z30 includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC and comes with a 1.7 GHz dual-core CPU and Adreno 320 GPU on-board.

If you are one to use your phone extensively, the BlackBerry z30 is the only option as its multitasking capabilities have yet to be seen in any other...

An amazing piece of hardware with shortcomings in the software. The Canadian manufacturer does not give up, and consistently tries to establish itself on the smartphone market. That is certainly not easy considering the strong competition and their...

Perhaps if BlackBerry had focused its efforts on making a phone like this five years ago, we would be looking at a very different picture now. As it stands, a barren app store, odd features and a monster price tag may kill what could have been a...

A Nice Phone with Scanty Apps and Disappearing Marketshare This all sounds like great stuff, right? So what's the problem? The phone is gorgeous and OS is pleasing, after all. BlackBerry World is still a lonely place compared to the Google Play...

The Z30 is definitely a step up from the Z10, but it isn't quite enough to conquer the market. It does everything it's supposed to and has enough battery life to please Berry lovers as well as a few newbies along the...

Leave the continuing struggles of its parent company out of the picture, and the BlackBerry Z30 is a pretty good alternative to the iPhone or your many Android phones, particularly if you're looking for a device that's focused more on messaging and...

The BlackBerry Z30 is clearly a step up from the Z10. It is more pleasing to look at, and feels better to hold and use even though it's bigger. I wish the larger screen made similar improvements, but it doesn't quite hold up when compared to competing...

I still really rather like BlackBerry 10 as it offers some neat tricks you simply won't find anywhere else, however, it's far from perfect with a fairly ugly UI and a less robust app ecosystem than its rivals. As far as touch-only BlackBerry 10 devices...

At first glance, the BlackBerry Z30 does look more impressive than its predecessor, the Z10. What you will come to love about the Z30, besides it having all the BB exclusive features of Z10, is an updated built quality.The combination of the 5-inch...

The Z30 is the best BlackBerry phone on the market but falls way short of the premium offerings from Android, Apple and even Windows Phone. The hardware for the Z30 is actually quite good. The phone feels great in your hands and the 5in screen does...

Oh Blackberry , I still love you. I am trying out the Z30, and love it so far. What is different? It isn't anything earth shattering, rather simple differences that help. The Z30 is operating on BB 10.2 operating system, with a slightly faster Dual...

The BlackBerry Z30 is the biggest and boldest smartphone the company has ever made with superb battery life, but it still has...

The BlackBerry Z30 lives up to the promise of a flagship phone, but it's too little, too late for all but the most committed BlackBerry...

I am undecided whether I like the BlackBerry Z30 to own or not, the lack of apps is really difficult to get past for me but there is the Sideloading function and that's just it for me, why should I sit there adding apps from another platform when they...

If the BlackBerry Z30 had been released in place of the Z10 then the company might not be in so much trouble now, although realistically it could have done with landing at least six months before that to have had a real hope of arresting BlackBerry's...

There isn't the app ecosystem of the big two competitors but we can see the BlackBerry Z30 as a useful compromise of the needs of businesses that rely on BlackBerry's security model, and users who'd like something with the touchscreen power of iPhone-based handsets. This big handset deserves to win...

The Z30 is a great smartphone, offering a brilliant, responsive 5-in. touchscreen with valuable sound improvements. The BlackBerry 10.2 software will please users of all types, but especially workers and older BlackBerry physical keyboard users who...

The Z30 retains all the strengths of BlackBerry, offering businesses a host of enhanced security services. However, it fails to address core problems within the ecosystem, like its lack of apps and offers at best comparable performance to other similarly...

This review is hot on the heels of a failed rescue deal and another CEO replacement. No way obviously to look at the Z30 and ignore the dire condition the company is in. Yet, this didn't happen overnight. Things were already going downhill when the...
