    I agree with you wholeheartedly, but come on, every one of those "better" comments is begging the question (unless there are spec advantages or something).

    I agree some listed are subjective but most of them the BlackBerry clearly gets the better grade.

    Should be only 12 reasons. 1 and 12 are opinions and iPhone has a larger screen now. I agree with everything else though

    I don't think the android + bb10 apps is really something to be touted as an advantage over another phone.

    This is about the 4.7" iPhone 6. Some points are opinions but I hear nothing but criticisms about OS8 and nothing but rave reviews for BB10.

    I will go on record and say the 6 is a very good phone and for argument sake it does have a brighter and sharper screen than the Z30 and a better 8mp camera. Many will probably prefer it's aluminum design as well, as long as it isn't bending in their pocket.

    You forgot the FM radio on the Z30. I don't think the iPhone has an FM radio.

    I never compare to iPhone. BlackBerry is never going to outsell Apple again. The war was lost a long time ago.

    I know why I like my Z30 but I don't even try to sell it to anyone else.

    1. Better OS
    That's opinion, iOS is more complete, they are waiting for the next 8.1 update or for "legacy features" to be integrated.

    2. Hdmi out and Miracast
    I actually thinks Apples implementation is quite good albeit locked to the ecosystem they can actually do the same if not more

    3. Removable storage
    Handy but I've never removed mine so again it's down to opinion and use, most people use the cloud and apple does offer 64gb, which also allows for MORE apps to be installed unlike BB10 which is limited due to its fixed internal storage.

    4. Better security
    Bes12 supports iOS, so some security

    5. Better keyboard
    IOS allows different keyboards, bb10 does not

    6. Actual NFC
    NFC in most parts is hardly mainstream, yet.

    7. Better speakers
    Dunno

    8. Better reception
    Depends on carrier

    9. Better battery life
    Might be

    10. Android and BB10 apps
    IOS has more and better quality apps, no contest

    11. Better messaging hub
    Agreed

    12. Better design
    Your opinion

    13. Bigger screen
    Opinion

    14. More ram
    IOS is actually quite smooth, unlike bb10 which hogs ram (rest in peace playbook)

    15. Better front facing camera
    Dunno

    You forgot.....

    - integrated file manager.
    - ability to drag and drop
    - superior multitasking
    - best in class communication centralization i.e. THE HUB!

    And it's of course my opinion, but the gestured based OS is fair more effective and efficient.

    Look! It's Zedzilla 30!

    I still can't do facetime or bbm video chat with all my friends and family that carry iphones.
    Except for that minor annoyance I love my z30 on bb10.
    Maybe there is an update on the way?

    - more durable, Z30 is not easy to bend. IPhone 6 and six plus do.
    -battery door on z30 is less money to replace. IPhone 6 you need to buy entire housing.
    - z30 has 4 microphones, iPhone 6 has 3.
    - less time to create ringtones on z30, more time on iphones.

    Ya that's probably not your Z30 though. I have no issues doing BBM video with other BB10 users but my iPhone buddies are always having to install the latest version of BBM for iOS just for message notifications to work. BBM for iOS is pretty ****ty if you ask me. I've all but 2 or 3 iPhone user friends still wiling to use BBM to chat, manly because I've told them I won't reply to text messages unless it's super important!

    I don't think the front facing cam on the Z30 is better than the one on iPhone 6. iPhone 6 takes better pics using both front and rear cam!
