    You could always get a case for it. Then at least the ugliness would be uniform.

    True. I don't ever drop my phones...well, almost never lol, so I don't bother with cases or screen covers. that's also why in like the back of the Z10. Who wants a slippery as hell iphone 5? Madness.

    Anyway, as I've said, I don't think the strip is a deal breaker, but I just don't think it fits in with the overall design of the phone, or of bb10. It's as if someone just added at the last stage of design for the hell of it. I'd dump it for the next phone and replace it with an all black look, which is far 'cooler', and a BlackBerry logo - perhaps a metal inset, something sharp looking. That's better advertising for the brand anyway.

    I like the silver strip on the bottom. I like how it's actually part of a silver strip that goes around the side of the device. I think it looks sleek and it sets it apart from every other device out there.

    Take away the silver and it looks like an Android phone. No, thanks.

    The phone is sexy. Period.

    Yea thats very subjective. I personally like it.

    For whoever that think the Z30 looks asymmetric than you ought to be appalled by the appearance of any keyboard phone

    I actually went and had another look at the thing. It really isn't bad. I still don't love it, but overall it's a great looking phone.

    Hi there.

    I like the silver strip, add class to the phone and off-setts the size, bit like skirting boards on a wall.

    So, you want something that looks a little something like this....

    I don't know, I kind of like the chin. As stated by someone earlier, it would be better just to make it real metal.

    I don't like how the Z30 has one at the bottom and not at the top. It's not symmetrical and looks off to me.. BUT I'm not advocating removing it. I'd like to see it back top and bottom like the Z10.

    I have what I would call a symmetry OCD, but believe me when I say you get used to it and it looks damn good after that.

    Here's my new Verizon Wireless Z30 shown with the 1) VZW High Gloss Silicone Cover for BlackBerry® Z30 - Black $19.99 and a 2) VZW Anti-Scratch Display Protector for BlackBerry® Z30 (3-pack) $12.99. Of note, the bottom of the Silicone Cover covers the silver strip... and the feel and appearance of the larger overlap orients me to the bottom of the phone...

    The Z30 is beautiful, but it what on earth is the silver thing for!? I want one, but the silver strip bothers me....I'd much prefer all black - looks much nicer.

    What do you guys think? Does anything else prefer the all black look? To be honest, I would also prefer an all black back cover (with the logo of course), instead of the greyish weave. It doesn't really match in my opinion - same for the Q10.

    I agree with you about the silver strip. As my wife puts it, "it looks like a Samsung". That strip is quite off-putting.

    As an orientation aid it works. I'm indifferent to its looks. The device is superb.

    Z30 is awesome, and I too wish it was all black. Not a fan of the Silver, but I put a commuter otterbox on mine and it covers all but a spec of the Silver! Far easier to handle and I like to lay my phone face down so the grippy trim keeps it from sliding around. Looks aside the Z30 is such an awesome phone I didn't let that stop me from buying one!

    Is it hard to put the cover and to take it off?

    The VZW Z30 cover is relatively easy to put on / take off. However, I've had no sense of it being loose or slipping in any way. It has an interesting design in that the phone slides down into the large portion of the cover (that hides the silver strip at the bottom). The top, left and right sides of the cover overlap the same amount (about 3/8"). Purchased the cover with the VZW branding because I read that the Verizon Wireless Z30's overall size is slightly smaller than other Z30's. The cover isn't as tight as the VZW cover I used on my previous Bold 9930.

    Lot of people like the silver because I mention it myself showing the phoneand they all saying that it's a nice touch instead of totally black. After a week I realised thwy are right when someone mention that the side is also silver it make sense and love it.

    After looking for a new case flip I bought a white flip backcover. It looks great with silver.

    I was initially thought the silver is bad, but after few days using z30. I appreciate the design.
    Because when grabs the old nexus 4, I start confused about the direction
