    Z30 looks much better "in person". I also did not like all the pre-release photos of the device. Once I got one in my hand though - observed the following:

    1) It doesn't feel 5". Very comfy to hold - more comfortable than Samsung Galaxy S4 or HTC One
    2) It looks much better than Z10. The bottom silver bezel is actually a part of metal band going around the phone - looks very cool and high quality
    3) Back is made of similar carbon-fibre-slip-proof material as Q10's, but seems to blend in better and is part of the same theme.

    Overall, I own Z10, Q10 and Z30 (for development) - and of all these phones Z30 is a clear winner. Not sure if it can take on Galaxy S4 (can't compete in specs) - but a definite iPhone 5 (S?) killer.

    If BlackBerry prices it properly (and bad news stop coming in before the holidays) - I think they have a chance selling quite a few.

    I'll have to see it and try it. I got a z10 in Feb. With all the early adopter problems. Can't stand the Q10 screen, the Q5 is just plain cheap looking, feeling. The low specs on the z30 are a problem, and the screen maybe too. I just wish BlackBerry would just make a high end phone ,or aleast use current hardware, dont know why BB is two years behind in hardware . They can't be that far behind in design and purchasing.

    Looks aside, i'll get it for the battery life alone. Im sorry but the Z10's battery life doesnt impress me at all. Im glad I have a spare battery for it or I wouldnt be able to deal with it.

    Bigger screen, much better battery, and the enhanced speakers all have me ready to make the jump

    The Z30 is the new Z10 for me. Originally, I was gonna only get the Q10, because I thought it would be coming "soon after the Z10." That's when I realized what "soon" means to BlackBerry, and I just couldn't wait anymore, I had to have the Z10 when it launched even though I had never had a touch screen device (then I got the Q10 when it came out).

    When images of the Z30 appeared, and it turned out that the specs weren't "stellar," I was kind of indifferent about it, especially because of the phablet size. Then, like the Z10, I keep seeing more high resolution pictures, and hearing good things about the battery and premium feel, and now, the Z30 has really grown on me.

    I'm not a sucker, and if I thought it wasn't the best, I wouldn't buy it. I've never bought low end BlackBerrys (at the time I bought them, the 8320 and 8900 were just a different kind of high end). The BlackBerry news has given me a mild level of anxiety lately, and all I want is for the company to prosper and continue to make devices available to us somehow.

    I've always been a supporter of BlackBerry, and in this time where we are not 100% sure that there will ever be new BlackBerry phones (so sad to even type that), I just feel like getting a Z30 is what I gotta do.
    Wow, you're my BlackBerry Doppelganger. This post could have been written by me. I share this story and these thoughts exactly.
