    I can't go for the high-end PP, or even Classic! Given, that the Z30 currently costs around 27000 INR, it is such a good choice.. But then the rumoured Z20, which might be a mid-range (approx. 18000 INR) seems worth the wait (usually, newer things are better)!
    N.B.: i don't update my phone often..so, would like a device that would survive the coming 3-5 years!(so, in that case, is z30 old by now?) I live in India..( i guess, i must wait to see if the Z20 supports indian 4g lte band! If it does, i'll incline towards it) i also can't wait for too long! I'm getting a phone next month!
    My shortlisted devices are-
    1. Z20(if it comes out)
    2. Z30(currently my eye pie)
    3. Htc desire 820(better than other non-BB smartphones..64-bit processor, and indian 4g support..)

    z20 is a mythical device IMO and wont ever be released. Z30 is old IMO. No device is going to last "3-5" years in todays world. Might have to see what comes at MWC in march for the new BB phone lineup

    If cost is a factor, the Z20 will be expensive too.
    I would choose the Z30. Performs well so why wait?!

    Z20 is not official yet, not it's price as u mentioned INR 18000 approx,
    I would suggest u to go for Z30, I have one and its really really a high end phone, I know some people including me who carry a Z30 and a Passport, they don't want to do away with Z30, 27000 is half than its launched price, go for it.
    I bet u won't regret

    I am also an indian. You can buy z10 if you want leaving stl100-1 version.
    It is a rumor(z20) but still you can wait. They will be releasing a phone soon.
    Don't buy z30. At rs.27000 it is not at all good. And z20 has 4g LTE support as per rumours.
    If you want mobile now, purchase z10(not stl100-1) or wait for BlackBerry if you are interested.
    If you want now only at rs.27,000 buy HTC one, lumia 830, samsung alpha, one plus one... all these are better alternatives...

    I have seen z30. It's nice but it has very old hardware like in my z10.
    See the passport. It is really fast and fluid than z10,z30.
    HTC one, lumia 830, samsung alpha has very much better screen, camera, by specification wise too. Z30 is an year old and these are the latest released phones ( leaving HTC one) so the technology is better in that to have really a nice display. If you see it you will understand.
    Better ti wait for z20 or if he can get z30 at Rs. 20k which could be better

    I agree with you but z10 is old too but if he prefer BlackBerry then z30 is currently one should he go away with. Z30 is best all touch device by BlackBerry in market today. And 27000 is not a big deal cause classic is selling at INR 31000-32000. Not much difference

    If you are interested in z30 than go for it but before that see HTC one, lumia 830, samsung alpha... if he doesn't care about displays and speed than z30 will be good.

    IMO, BB is more efficient than Android..so, specs on Z30 doesn't sound cheap!
    Well, i suppose, i should wait..i won't lose anything if i waited another month to see what BB plans for 2015!
    And i didn't mean 5 actual years, though.. But then, will it keep getting updates the coming 2 years? (at least 1 year more..i don't hopping from one phone to another!!)
    And, the last option would be 'htc 820' not 'htc one'!! (i don't wanna spend too much if the phone i'm getting isn't BB..that's my personal preference..LOL)
    And, yeah, hopefully, my financial conditions will improve by 2016..so, may get a new all touch high end BB by then..as BB has always been my preference over any other OS..!!

    The Z30 is better than the z20, so if you can get it for the same price, do it

    Have to wonder will the Z3 stay in the lineup.... or will the "import" fees drive up the cost of the Z20 enough to make the two devices different enough to justify a carrier or retailer having both.

    I don't think any one would consider leap over BlackBerry z30 on same price tag. BlackBerry z30 is still worth to buy. And have good price too now around same as BlackBerry leap.
