    First off, sorry but I am little disappointed. I am coming from a Q5.
    Love the blacks on this screen and hate the whites but even at minimum brightness the screen is very bright. Overall I would say I am impressed with the screen.
    My main problem has been performance. I was expecting a considerable bump in performance coming from the Q5 but hasn't been the case exactly. Having ram management issues, having to hard reset the phone in every 2-3 days for it to function smoothly. Within a day of reset, the phone is down to 500 mb ram with 3 apps open (BBM, settings, and device monitor) for now allowing the OS to 'settle' in. It shows sparks of some very good performance at times, but only sparks. I used 10.2 for the first day and I have to say, 10.3.1 did more harm than good to older devices in terms of performance. I felt that with Q also feeling it with the Z. 10.2 and 10.2.1 was made for these phones. 10.3.1, not so much I feel. It was made for passport type specs. 10.3.1 isn't that good on my dad's classic either.
    I will have to security wipe this phone in some time but it's just sad that a week old phone and BlackBerry's 2nd most powerful phone is having such issues.

    Definitely sounds like an issue begging for a wipe and reset, cause that's definitely not the case with my Z30 (and I've been on a Q5 as well). Hope you can get it fixed, because it's a monster of a phone with the latest update (my Classic also runs better than fine on the latest update).

    This should be an easy fix unless you're just unlucky and have a defective device, let's hope that's not the case. Grab the latest 10.3.2 autoloader for your device, wipe and reload.

    The Z30 aside from the Passport, is the strongest showing device from BlackBerry as of yet. It's the best BlackBerry I've owned thus far and I also have a Q5, Q10 and Z10. These are all good phones but the Z30 is the most well rounded device of all.

    Hope you take some of the advice that's been provided and resolve your issue.

    Thanks. But I only restore contacts and settings only always. Not apps. That I have to or else I'll lose all my contacts. I am still on 10.3.1 reading 10.3.2 is better but hasn't been pushed to india yet X_X. I shall try to security wipe and lets see how it goes .

    Your RAM issues will resolve themselves over time. I had the same issue, but now have around 1gb of free ram at the end of day, and great battery life.

    Rock'n the awesome Z30 STA100-5 on 10.3.2.2168

    I skipped the entire 10.3.1 series because it was too slow and buggy compared to 10.2.1 however I can say that 10.3.2.2639 is smooth and worth having.

    Having the dreaded hub slow down as well. Only BBM opens without a lag. Rest everything from the hub opens with a lag (whatsapp being the most) . The most awesome thing about BlackBerry, and it's ruined. Had the same thing on my Q5. My dad has it on the classic.

    Stop complaining and make or download an autoloader and go to 10.2.2.1609 or 10.2.1. 10.3.1 sucks. 10.3.2 is fine though. Remember once you go to 10.3.2 you are there for keeps though.

    There is definitely something else going on here. You should try all things like hard reboot, reload OS etc and see if any of these solutions work for you.

    You seriously just need to update to 10.3.2. Your plan is to wipe the phone anyway in order to reload 10.3.1. Why not use the most current OS version? Especially if you have more then one account of its stability being commented within this thread.

    I'm on a carrier version of 10.3.2 and I'm thinking about updating ASAP!

    Don't think I should stop complaining because as of now, I am on the most recent official OS and if there is a problem with that, I feel I should voice it instead of just downloading a leak.

    Although I am using an unlocked Z30, BlackBerry has decided not to push 10.3.2 to my country yet for some reason.

    Well I think it's hopeless to wait for a BlackBerry 10 os update in india ,it will come too late I think better try to install a leak instead of waiting for an update in india on a laggy os on the best touch screen phone..its like wasting the phone's talent..;P.

    While I'm sure that you know this - the versions available in the "LEAK" Subforum are mostly NOT leaks. They are official versions of the OS that have been released by BB and by various other carriers, just not your carrier. So while not out in your country, they are released official in other places. For instance, while Verizon (USA) is usually one of the last to release new update, they did release an official 10.3.2.xxx about a month or so ago. Again, most of the new available 10.3.2.xxxx are NOT LEAKS.
