    I've been a z10 users for almost a year now, I like mostly everything about my z10
    Unfortunately the screen has a little scratch on it, and there's also a small area on my screen where colors appear lighter than they are :/
    Should I buy a new Z10 or a Z30?-photo-1-2-.jpg

    So I'm considering buying a new BlackBerry, should I buy BlackBerry z30? Or another z10?
    What's the main differences between them except their size?

    Z30. Better battery, bigger screen. It's slight upgrade from z10 but it's definitely the best BlackBerry phone made up to date so far.

    Eh, unless the z50 comes out. ;-)

    With all the carriers playing spectrum games, I would wait until the dust settles.

    Nice of Tmob to buy band 12 LTE when nobody has phones to cover that band.

    They say the z30 is twice as fast as the z10. It wouldn't matter much to me. Having bands I can't use? That I care about. Then comes VOLTE.

    It is all a budget game. If you don't care about the money, just do it. There will always be something new.

    I've had both and I'd highly recommend the Z30.

    Z30 has 2,880mAh battery vs Z10's 1,800. Plus Z30 has an OLED screen that saves power in general, but especially when portions of screen are black such as with BB10 dark theme.
    I also find the colours more vibrant.

    The dual core processor is about 15% faster, but that difference is noticeable. This and the quad core gpu give much, much smoother graphics if you're watching video or playing games.

    Z30's Natural Sound speakers are amazing, even if you only use them once in a while.

    The Paratek antenna array of Z30 gives crazy reception. I now get full signal strength 2 floors underground at my office parkade. Before on Z10, I had 0 bars, maybe 1-2 sometimes. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth both have increased range too.

    The Z30 is the best BlackBerry they've made to date.

    Add Miracast, FM radio, USB OTG for connecting devices through USB, awesome sounding speakers, faster processor 1.7 Mhz vs. 1.5, Paratek antenna, etc.

    About all the z10 has going for it is better color rendition, better resolution, and a replaceable battery. Then again, the Z30 can go all day, well perhaps excluding a coast to coast plane trip. I have two spares for my z10 just so that I can use (and I mean really use) the phone on the plane and have juice to use the phone when I deplane.

    I've had the Z10 and Q10 before getting the Z30 a couple of days ago and i must say the Z30 wins by a large margin

    Battery longevity is just insane, the new antenna is a very noticeable improvement in reception quality and the USB otg is a very useful feature for me.

    I bought my Z30 from Kijiji for 500$, ive seen others go for as low as 400 here in Canada, but they are selling quick on the used market
