    Does it ruin the black z30? Is it horribly unusable or just not as bad as the pictures show? I want a z30 but I am not looking forward to painting that little bottom part black. Not sure how to find the right shade to match rest of phone

    1 100% agree, the silver chin is not a good look on the black model, however did get to see it person today looks better in-person than pictures suggest. I think the silver chin looks good on the white model, classy.

    Yeah, horribly, it messed up my BBM and my phone calls keep dropping.

    Actually, the cosmetics of the device are great and I can't see how they would make it "horribly unusable". Is is the color that your concerned about? Size? Smell?

    I hear it's too magnetic and tends to attract pocket change.

    it's actually good as point of reference (silver=bottom) ..it's metallic, feels different.
    other phones look alike..black slab.

    The silver at the bottom is like a man wearing pants or woman wearing skirts. Perfectly normal. Don't have to be single colour, uniform. I prefer my old mercs, with two tone paints.

    Well first off the only black part on the phone is the glass and the bezel around it, the ring around the phone is silver, and the back is stitched carbon fibre. And just for the record I like the silver it's different and it gives me a reference where the bottom of the phone is. To each their own I guess.

    And to the guy who posted about two tone paint jobs I give a YES love those!!

    "I can't believe they painted it that hideous colour makes me want to puke"....

    C'mon people it's a phone, not a priceless piece of jewelry, Sheesh

    That's down to the speakers on the back, not the silver chin.

    True, but if its a uniform colour you are unlikely to notice. The base colour is black.

    To differentiate the top from the bottom. I think it's unnecessary feature. However, the Z30 looks good as a whole and that's what matters.

    I find the grey matches the prematurely grey whiskers on my chin. So in a sense the phone is painted to match my face. Tks BB! I'm styling now!!!!(well I would be styling if I had the phone.....soon my friends......soon....)

    I like the silver! For no particular reason lol but I think it pulls the phone together nicely. I didn't mind the black z10 but it was too black for me if you guys know what I mean. It just felt really dark and my eyes are bad even with glasses haha. But yeah the silver trim isn't bad!

    Does it look like it's a separate piece that maybe replacements may be found for on Ebay someday? I replaced the carrier branded bottom panels on a couple of OS7 phones I used to have with plain ones that I got off eBay.
