    Android bar question, this is more of an OS issues not a Z30, depending on the load it is different.
    Well, I will like it answered, nevertheless, if you don't mind. I want to know if on this version of BB10 OS (the one that's on OP's Z30) the Android bar is removable or not.

    Definitely easier to type on this than a Z10.
    The last issues about business use is probably a preference thing.
    It is blazing fast, noticeably faster than a Z. I know it is only a speed bump 1.7 versus 1.5 but you can see and feel the difference.
    Firstly thank you for offering your experiences, I am wanting to upgrade to a bb10 from a 9810 I have had difficulty when trying a Z10 for typing as my fingers are large Does the Z30 give a good keyboard experience presumably the "keys" are larger (bigger target) as I really would like the larger display for my business use.

    It is not in mine.
    Higher version than OP though.

    Hi, and thank you for doing this. Here is my question:

    The the bottom bar of the Android Runtime (the one with the back button) is unremovable?
    Not with the OS that it comes with. Loaded Flipboard from the official store and have the annoying bar all the time.

    Is there wireless charging?


    Fired from my Z10
    I have the STA100-2 which does not support Wireless charging. I've heard STA100-3 supports it.

    Keyboard experience is definitely awesome. Better than the Z10 and, IMHO, better than the Q10!

    Another question when you get the chance and if you do find the usb host cable, please check if you can copy and paste from your usb flash drive to the phone AND if you can copy and paste from the phone to the usb flash drive?

    After that if you don't mind testing and formating the usb flash drive to ntfs and exfat and testing if those file system works with usb otg on the z30.


    Thanks, sorry for the trouble (:

    Better for me. I use font = 5 and my vision is not great but not bad either.
    Screen and text seems crisper.

    Z10 is definitely sharper. I have decent eyes but I have kept the font size at 8 on the Z30 and although it is good enough, you can see a clear difference when you put it next to a 1080p panel such as the Xperia Z1

    Don't know how and can't/
    Don't use instagram. Although I have the unlocked android runtime and running Candy Crush Saga and Pet Rescue Saga fine.
    I pass my time with these instead of pictures.

    Is it better for one handed operation? Cuz z10 was near perfect! And how is the gaming experience And the screen quality for graphics for real racing 3 or asphalt 7 etc? Is it any better than the lcd display of z10? Did u notice any lag what so ever while normal operation and when 8 apps are open as active frames?
    Thank you

    One handed operation is definitely not as optimal as Z10. Also the Z30 is quite heavy at 170g making it a bit uncomfortable with one hand over extended times.

    Haven't tried games yet. Will let you know about that but I am assuming that they will look better given the larger screen size.

    Lagging, yes. Especially with the official twitter client. Also in general a bit here and there. But I think OS updates will fix that.

    Had this issue on my Z10... I believe it's the android runtime version. I downloaded the APK directly from the Play Store, converted it and installed it with Sachesi, and it works great.

    Hopefully the runtime is updated soon. Would suck if it would be crippled by that :/

    should the screen be a dealbreaker then compared to the z10 or the difference is marginal?

    Can anyone answer a simple question for me, seeing as this is the new flagship BB device...is the build of the phone similar to the Samsung S3 or is it similar in quality to the Z10 which has a metal housing in it??

    Im really hoping it isnt full plastic like the S3 but rather a metal chassis like the Z10.

    Thanks for any info guys,
