    After seven months of getting by with my lovely Z10, I finally moved on. Hard to let go but worth letting go cos what I have now serves me very much better.
    My Z10 was the STL100-1 and you can imagine what I went through. Having to charge it at least 3 times daily and then calibrate the battery every fortnight and not getting much features as do other models of Z10 and other bb10 devices.
    Well, all that's gone now as I have in my hands the BEST of the BEST.
    Had to wait for 4 months to make this decision and oh my, it's very worth it.
    It's beautifully designed and I have the white colour which brings the beauty of this device to full glare.
    The buttons are soft and feels so cool when pressing. You don't have to press hard for it to respond. The screen is just as bright as my Z10 and just at 50%. Fell in love with the large screen instantly. Everything about the phone is just so perfectly done. The sound is splendid. Some people say it's heavy and big. I didn't observe that because I feel it's just as light as my Z10 and fills my palms perfectly.�
    Guess, you know the phone I'm talking about already.�
    It's the Almighty Z30 (as Slff calls it). The Kick @ss blackberryZ30, as Carjackd calls it.
    Just loving everything about this phone. Wished I had it earlier but it's good it came now.
    My Z10 was a good device but for its obvious flaws, however, My Z30 is a better device. Now, I don't have to charge or calibrate the battery every now and then because the battery is made from heaven. Lasts longer than you can imagine.
    Very happy, I moved on. It's a good replacement for the Z10.
    You cannot fully appreciate this device until you have used it.

    Welcome to the party. By the way you should compkete wipe your Z10. Install it from scratch and give it to somebody who doesn't own a BlackBerry device yet for a month or so to try. And voila you have another convert

    Shorski, my naija brother. I'm hoping to share the same story by tomorrow. I've had the white Z10 STL 100-1 since 6th of March last year, and i intend to get the white Z30 tomorrow from Slots in Abuja for 85k, though a bit on the high side, but I love the phone, so no going back for me.

    Just a few questions for you;

    1. Have you noticed the rattling sound from the volume keys, as some have reported, especially with the STA 100-2 variant?
    2. Have you also experienced the hissing sound from the speakers, as some have reported experiencing with the STA 100-2 variant?

    Did you buy yours in Abuja? If you did, can you recommend a store i can get it cheaper than Slots?

    Well, 85k is not that high compare to what obtains here in lagos. It's between 75k and 80k, depends on exchange rates.
    I sold my Z10 to the store I got it from and got the Z30 there as well. Just like a swap with cash. The store is Affordables store in Ikeja.
    By the way, Slot is known to be an expensive store.

    As for your questions, no rattling sound or hissing sound at all.
    Everything is absolutely perfect.

    Yes I did. I got the White. I'm running the 10.3.0.140 build for now. I just wanted to get the feel of the upcoming 10.3 OS, even though this build is far from the final version.

    Thought of that too but it's very buggy so I decided to wait for the sdk coming later this month.
    By the way, how are you enjoying the beauty of this spectacular white device. Isn't it a beauty to behold?

    I'm loving it so far. It's like you said,"a beauty to behold". I'm not too sure about the battery life though, it's been draining quite fast. Will give it some time and see what becomes of it. I just installed the 10.3 OS, so maybe it's still 'settling in' and all. But all in all, it's an awesome device.

    I did the same upgrade about a month ago in the UK and have never looked back. The z30 is a fantastic phone. I go a full day without having to top the battery up. The only time I have ever had to top up was after an OS leak upgrade but that was the normal settling in and updating of contacts etc that is quite normal. Within 24 hours she was back to normal.

    Using an awesome Z30.

    I used a Z10 since launch and then got the Z30 when it came out. I carry both devices. Although I love the Z30, I always seem to go back to using my Z10. Has the perfect form factor and it does what I need it to do. Enjoy your Z30!

    T-Mobile USA, I presume? Don't wait--get an unlocked Z30 from ShopBlackBerry and insert your T-Mobile SIM like I did. Works fine!
