    You want to buy a phone.. I think..
    You can buy BlackBerry Z3 from Flipkart which is around 12000

    Better of buying droid means android??

    you can buy android phones in this price range.. but it depends on what type of phone you want to buy... what I mean is now in india in this price range you can buy indo China phones like asus,gionee,xaomi,lenovo like this.. if you want then you can buy..

    Secondly there is a problem in android that is battery backup.. if you want to buy a 2 gb ram and some quad or octa core processor phone you will get less battery backup.. heating issues exist for all phone it may be android or BlackBerry or windows...

    It's too soon to tell, at the moment, BlackBerry will most likely be supporting the Z3 for a lot more years.

    I am a BlackBerry Z3 User.. when I bought this product I followed some sites, they mentioned that os is upgradable to 10.3.1 ... just like android phones... but if you follow BlackBerry carefully you will find BlackBerry Z10, Z30, Q10 get all the updates from its primary position..

    Z10 had a basic version of os 10 the first one ..i don't know the name suppose 10.0.x to 10.3.1 . Z30 Q10 also get the same thing... so I think BlackBerry Z3 WILL get all updates..

    Since the software and hardware both made by BlackBerry there is 90 % chance to get new updates.. just like nexus 5 in android...

    Heating issues are quite common.. if you play games any phone can touch 43/45 c index..
    Try to install BlackBerry games they are optimized..

    You can update any BlackBerry phone through 2 ways (simple and easy )

    1) via BlackBerry Link
    2) via your phone only..

    When I updated my phone I have chosen the second method as my laptop USB ports are not tight.. some times device connection failed..

    But before update take a backup of your system,take a backup of your contacts .after that do a security wipe (before security wipe charged up your phone 100 % ) I think by doings this your SPACE PROBLEM will be resolved after that go to settings > software update. Now update your phone..

    As of now, Z3 stands still at official Beta SR release 10.3.2.158. Two succeeding Beta updates failed to load for want of free device storage space as it is limited to 8 GB. Unless the updates are tailor made to the device, I do not see much hope in further progress. On the current version, Z3 works flawlessly. Great battery life too. Easily exceeds 24 hours of more than average use.

    Because of BB10 users reliance on many Android apps, I would not advise you to buy a Z3 at the moment (the 1.5 GB of RAM could hamper the performance of some Android apps)

    It's better to buy other BB10 device - all the others have at least 2GB of RAM

    I saw a leap already on Olx.in
    Check them out. These are usually from users who just buy a phone because they can and sell it immediately after just opening it.

    Good luck!

    BlackBerry Classic, Passport and Z30 .

    The BlackBerry Z3 will be supported for at least 5 years. BlackBerry is still supporting the 9720 so don't worry about support.

    With regards to Software updates, Only time will tell. But 10.3.2 is definitely coming to the Z3
