    Thanks guys for help. I'm going to buy BlackBerry z30

    Posted via CB10
    I hooked my step brother up with a Z30 and he loves it, for what it's worth. Obviously there are advantages to iOS (iPhone 5C) - camera and apps being the two biggies, imho... But based on your stated usage (browser, facebook twitter, music), you should be very happy with the Z30. Larger screen size, stereo speakers, nice balance to the device, good battery life and bonuses like superior quick settings, remote file access through link, and expandibility through micro-sd for storage.

    Not sure how they compare on price, but given that both are older devices you'd get a good deal on a great device either way.

    OP, just one question. Did you honestly expect unbiased opinions at CrackBerry?

    Seems like he's getting some pretty unbiased opinions to me looking at the responses. I'd say they're pretty balanced and well thought out overall.

    Even when you walk into an Apple store, the employees recommend you don't but the c since it has 8GB and all that space iOS mostly taken by the software.

    Z30 on the other hand is work horse.

    5c is good, z30 is outdated inside. If only blackberry stop making firmware update, z30 will become a garbage.

    If you want apps, go with the iphone.

    Otherwise Z30 is superior in everything else.

    Via my Z30 on the Telus network
    Agree... for apps, go for iPhone.

    Like Paulwallace said different ends of the spectrum. I'd go for the Z30 even if it was not my phone, but then again I've never owned a phone at lower mid-range.

    If you want decent speakers and the best antenna and better battery life, HUB, best in class keyboard larger screen, Z30. If you want to look like someone trying to be hip and don't care about any of the above just so long as you have a seamless Snapchat and Instagram experience until 3pm, then go for the 5c.

    So people who have iphone's are just trying to be hip? They only use it for Snapchat and Instagram? They don't actually like the device they chose?

    I never knew this......

    Are we still in the 5th grade? Lol, you can't be serious with that assessment.

    They probably do like it, that's why they chose it. I didn't say people who have iphones, we are discussing the 5c in particular, so don't try to start a flame war by misquoting me. No, I didn't say iphone 5c users only use their device for Snapchat and Instagram. I'm sure they do other things too, like facetime or imessage or whatever. Bottom line, if you're going to go iphone, get a 5 (same as 5c but doesn't look cheap), 5s or 6. The 5c is not as good as the 5 in my opinion with the plastic back and limited memory, not to mention poor battery life and shoddy reception (by comparison with the Z30, coz that's what We're doing here)

    I hate iPhone's period, all the iPhone 5's are the same IMO.

    Good thing we all have our own opinions...

    If you want apps then go to android.. you will get 100% of apps( what you want).. they are cheaper than iPhone.. also..

    If you want to spend more rupees to iphone because iphone is more secure than android then that is up to you..
