    Hey BlackBerry peeps,

    Just recently in mid January I returned to a BlackBerry Z30 for work emails.
    Originally I worked off an iPhone 6, then a Samsung Galaxy S6, and those two proved to be a distraction with the apps. I switched to Windows Alcatel Idol 4S. It's a great device but it felt stale. However, coming back to the new Z30 I found it awesome and it's like welcoming back an old friend. Love the pinch and zoom hub function for flag emails inside the HUB. All my work email accounts and text messages as well as my personal email on one. Can legit say I balance work and my personal tasks. The calendar and tasks are despite basic, are such a useful tool. The browser despite getting old, can handle my work website and get things done. Managing documents and even creating word documents is a breeze! Haven't tried excel yet but I'm sure I can at least view them. The keyboard is second to none. Last but not least the music players it's an old gym buddy. Love how I can switch songs with the music keys without getting my grimy fingers on the touch screen. Seriously LOVE my BlackBerry and it's a shame I am not certain what will happen to it by the end of 2019.. the only amazon apps that work or that I use are Skype and Spotify. They work like a charm. A bit leggy because they are android devices but still work great.

    Glad to hear your Z30 is working well for you. The basic functions are definitely there and the flow is still nicer than anything I've tried.

    Since my Passport's battery is slowly degrading I'm thinking about switching to the Z30 for a while. The battery on the Z is really great.

    Hi, unfortunately I did have the Passport Silver Dollar. The battery degraded within five months of minimal use as my daily driver was a Samsung GS7 and for work, an iPhone 6+. I had no real use at the time for the passport and despite it being a brilliant device I hate how the battery just degraded out of nowhere.
    Meanwhile the Z30 battery is not bad.. will require to recharge after 8 Hours of use. My phone receives emails non stop. Also Skype runs nonstop on the background receiving IMs.

    Best sounding BlackBerry in my humble opinion, with Passport and DTEK60 a distant second, I use it as my music source. Best touch phone I have used, by far. The DTEK60 disappointed me although I like the direction it was going but BlackBerry let me down on that model. Although I'm a physical keyboard guy and I'm using the Key2 now, I wish BlackBerry kept up the BlackBerry 10 OS, best OS ever and I worked Andriod and iOS. Clearly the Z30 is my favorite touch and the Passport is my best physical keyboard (still use for extensive email reading) but battery on Passport and DTEK60 is disappointing, although the Passport was good for almost 3 years before falling off. The DTEK60 battery was bad out the gate, and I can't update the OS. But I'm a BlackBerry guy for as long as it is around. Had a BlackBerry from the Pearl to Key2, and I still have them except the Pearl.
