    Default White Z30 or Black Z30?

    Hi Everyone,

    My sister is thinking about switching from her Q10 to her Z30. She hasn't decided which color she should go for. I think she should go for the white Z30 but I would like to have some input from all current Z30 owners. Are they made with the same material? Does the white get dirty easily? Which color should she get?

    Your inputs are much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I was wondering about the white getting dirty myself, asked about it (I think in the CB blog comments,) and was told that does not happen. Here is a pretty good, recent thread about a white Z30 purchase that discusses, among other things, build/QC issues.

    The biggest difference to my mind is the tactile one. The back cover of the white model is a little more slick than the black, more of a plastic feel than the glass fiber of the black model.

    I have a white z10 and can confirm the back is very slippery. My phone still looks good because of my case. Always have to watch my hands and make sure they are beyond clean so my phone doesn't get dirty.
    I'm getting myself a black z30 and the grip on the back of the phone was a big deciding factor.

    Z10s have the same back. It's the black Q10 and Z30 that have the carbon weave back.

    Thanks for the link. It's very helpful.
    Sounds like the new batch of white Z30's doesn't have the same hardware problems like volume buttons and speakers volume of the first batch...

    Don't the black z10s have a better grip on the back? I've played around with a black z10 and it feels better than mine.

    I didn't notice it. I thought both had the same texture.

    Originally I was going to go with the white - the front does look really nice, but I ended up getting black mainly because of the carbon fiber weave design on the back (even though it's mostly covered up by a case on mine).
    I really like the carbon fiber look and much prefer it to the plain white with no design.

    Also, the carbon fiber back definitely has a nice grippy feel to it
    If you're going to use it with no case, I'd suggest black just for the extra grip. It's not a light phone.

    The texture is similar, but from what I remember reading the white was more of a hard plastic, not the rubbery plastic of the black Z10.
    I'm pretty sure the black Z10's back was more grippy.

    On all 3 I think the white plastic is at least a bit harder and slicker to the touch so that it has less chance of picking up dirt or colour from your clothes or whatever.

    I heard the white on the z10 is more white and bright compared to the z30's. I heard it looks more creamier.

    The pictures of white Z30 and white Z10 on Shop BlackBerry look like they have same white tone. But then they are just pictures. I agree seeing is believing.

    I agree with this...so I purchased the black back cover for the white Z30 I just bought. While it is not near the gripping level of the Z10, the black back cover is better than the white from a gripping experience.

    This is my 2 cents for what it is worth.

    That is correct! I used to own both but sold the white due to the nicer feel of the black for me personally, and also the illusion of the bigger screen since it's all black.

    The white z30 is miles and miles better and nicer built than the z10, the color is more creamy, and the plastic is matte and feels really nice. Just not glass weave nice.

    Sounds like the black Z30 is the preferred by more Z30 owners...

    Yes I am. Listen, the back won't matter much if you have a case. I think the white back is nice, a little slippery for sure, but it's not bad.
