    This thread isn't designed to be a slagging match or to put anyone down so please people be nice.

    Those of you who have a z10. Would you want to move up to a z30 if you had the choice or are you happy to stick with the z10??

    Reason being I have both but it's a trade off z30 screen against z10 weight..

    Here's what I posted in a different thread a few days ago:

    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.

    The battery is enough for me to want to switch among other things of course such as screen size and better reception.

    From what I read about the z30, it is better than the z10. If I were to switch to the z30, I would like to try it personally. However, I can't find a demo unit in stores. Anyway, I'm stuck right now in a contract. So no device switching until at least a year. Lol Besides, I'm very satisfied with the Z10. It is a good size.

    I'm going to be switching soon myself...I love my Z10 but that Z30 is a pretty sweet device.
    I thought the screen would be a bit big for my tastes but I tried one out and found it to be not oversized at all...just about perfect. The battery is an awesome upgrade but I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to use my external bundle I got for the Z10 with it or if I have to get a new external (or will I even need an external).
    The specs are very nice and the operation is still buttery smooth...only thing holding me back is the price.
    I have to wait another year myself if I want to upgrade cheaply but I'm impatient and I'm willing to part with the cash (when I have it) for a Z30.

    I had the Z10 since the first day it was released in Canada. Sold it 2 weeks ago and bought the Z30. I never keep phones for as long as I did the Z10, that says a lot for me. However, I do like the Z30 better.
    The battery life wasn't an issue for me on the Z10, but the Z30 is definitely better. I love the added screen size and the phone overall feels faster. Wouldn't go back if I had a choice.

    Z30 is actually impressive to show other people, z10 is like having just another android, none cares and can't tell it's different, that how I feel about it

    I would love to see a mix of the two. Bigger screen of the 30 with replaceable battery of the 10. Add in miracast, wifi direct, ac wifi, keep HDMI out and 32 Gigs of on board memory plus 4 gigs of ram or a way to share memory via sd card like a laptop via turbo boost. I would give up a few gigs of sd card if it boosted RAM memory.
    Specially if the phone took a 128 gig card or had 2 sd card slots. Part of my wish list!

    To me the Z30 looks great, it has some more features, a bit more power, a bigger battery and a larger screen!

    But I personally would stick with the Z10!
    Even if wouldn't have a Z10 - I would choose it over the Z30!

    1.) I love the formfactor! It fits so perfect in my hand! And I can reach every point on the keyboard, holding it just in one hand (lying in bed or on the run). Also I love the design.

    2.) Removable battery! It is great to be able to switch batteries or being able to buy a new one. Also the 1800mAh lasts a whole day for me - it has less power than the Z30 but enough for me.

    3.) Screen! The Z30 has a super modern SuperAMOLED! But I still love the brilliant colors of the LCD.

    4.) The Z10 feels more robust for me. I dropped mine a few times - nothing! No scratches, no chips. I got a friend with a Z30, he dropped his too and there are some chips in the metal looking bezel.

    This are the big points for me, why I wouldn't upgrade. Besides that: I love my Z10!

    I would go for a Z10. I personally don't see enough of an upgrade in the Z30 and plus the price point is much too high.

    I had a 30 for 10 month and loved it. Now have a 30 and I'm totally impressed. Best phone I've ever owned. The 10 had to be charged by 3 everyday and the 30 makes it all day without any charge and I'm a heavy user. Bigger screen is awesome with my eye sight, a few more options for screen appearance, keyboard letters are a little bigger. For me I would not go back.

    Rockin Z30 on

    I have the Z10 for about a year now. Thought about the Z30 but what turned me off was the screen resolution. Quality is better on the Z10. Also.....i was turned off that the Z30 is bigger. I had an issue transitioning leaving Bold 9900 to the Z10.

    The price point is to high right now. I know with BB10 that specs aren't everything but look at the specs of some of the android phones you get at the same price or even less. They are better. I'm currently waiting on the next BB flagship and keeping my Z10 until then.

    I do have the choice to switch to Z30. I can afford the cost to switch but the upgrades don't justify the cost. Perfectly happy with Z10. If I acquired a free Z30 then sure I would switch.

    I had to decide between the two when I was switching to BB10 and the Z10 won out. Main reason was superficial. I do not like the look of the black/grey Z30. The silver bezel at the bottom without one at the top just looks off to me. I do like the white but my carrier still doesn't have it. The Z10 just looks more symmetrical to me especially the white. The Z10 is also the perfect size for me. It's like the sweet spot between an iPhone and an Android.

    I used to own a Galaxy Note 2 from day 1. My thoughts... Blackberry is a failure when it comes to marketing, let me explain; Samsung has the Galaxy S Series and Galaxy Note Series which give them the possibility to appeal to different consumers without a head to head fight among their products. I know people who owned both the S4 and Note 3 "because they were different proposals". I really liked my Note 2 but now I see that it was a bit too big for my convenience that's why I decided to GAMBLE and bought a Z10 (I never owned Blackberry phones before).
    I see the Z30 very different from the Z10 and it's not for me now the Z10 size is perfect exchangeable batteries and full black phone which is what I like.
    Z30 is more suited for someone who doesn't want to use a notebook 90% of the time and definitely not a phone to use while exercising. Blackberry should had set the differences from the go divide them by their own strengths and NOT let them crush for Blackberry supremacy which they didn't. Now they have two different proposals fighting for the same customers which after all of Blackberry's restructuring hard to believe they continue to make silly mistakes. I could write a book on the rookie mistakes they continue making after releasing both phones alone.

    I have a z10 because I had to buy off contract and couldn't justify the cost of the z30. Based on what I have read on the z30 as far as battery life reception and sound go, I would prefer it to the z10. I do have good reception and sound with the z10 and prefer the smaller size. If I could get a monster deal to upgrade I would but as it stands I'm happy with what I have.

    I would choose Z10 because the size and Z30 because the battery.

    Well, hope that they make bigger battery (in term of power) for Z10.

    I have a Z10 (and a battery bundle) and I would trade it for a Z30. I originally thought the Z30 was much larger than the Z10 until I tried it. It's still plenty "pocketable" in my opinion, which was my initial concern.

    Fortunately though, the Z10 does everything I need it to efficiently, so I don't feel that I need to trade it for any other device.

    I really, really, really like the LCD screen on my Z10. And the size. Like someone had said, the size fits that sweet spot. Battery life is not an issue with me. Having said that, the Z30 is very nice too.

    My pick will be Z30 over Z10.
    1) Battery
    2) big screen
    3) radio FM
    4) USB Features
    5) wifi direct and miracast
    6) sound (speakers)
