    I'm waiting for my Z30 to be delivered. I love the look of the hardware, except for the silver at the bottom, I feel it looks out of place and dull. I thought it was grey plastic until I tapped it with my nail. Am I the only one who thinks it looks out of place? I wish the metal was gunmetal or black. What do you guys think?

    It's silver so you know which way is up , and not having to flip your phone all the time.

    I kind of like it. The phone would be overly plain without a little contrast

    The silver on the chin continues along the side of the phone which in my opinion, completes the look and makes a world of difference. If only the chin was silver, I wouldn't like it.

    You can't always see that in the pictures but in hand, the phone looks great. You'll see.

    My case covers it so it is a non issue for me.

    When I first saw pictures with the silver bar I didn't really like it, but it has grown on me, and I do like that it helps with orientation.

    I came from a Z10 so I kind of hated it. But I use the glacier White otterbox case and now I don't even see the strip anymore. I love it

    The real action happens on the screen, focus on that.

    I agree, before I got my z30 a week and a bit ago, I thought it looked terribly cheap and out of place.

    Much, much better in person.

    It's still a piece of junk for durability. It *is* actually cheap plastic that chips at the smallest impact. A chunk of the silver trim came off at the USB charging port just from tapping it a tad harder once with the mini-USB connector. The bottom chipped from God-knows-what in two spots. My phone is in the case most if the time and was never dropped anywhere.

    My case covers it, though I actually think it's nice looking. I have heard how fragile it is, and that it chips really easily. I don't want to get it messed up, so I keep a case on my Z30.

    It looks off with the white Z30 though, but I like the look still.

    I like it. Makes the phone distinguishable from others. Easily recognized as a BlackBerry Z30

    Z30 is a beautiful device. The sandwiched/striped layer profile is the prettiest I've ever seen.

    My experience is quite different. I work in construction, store the thing in my back pocket, no case - nothing but a screen protector. I have dropped it several times. It still looks almost like the day I bought it, which was first day it was on sale at Verizon. I have been thoroughly impressed with the durability - this is the first time I have used a phone in my harsh work environment with no case. You seem to have been unlucky.

    As for the subject - I wasn't 100% sold on the silver bar when I first saw pictures. It didn't exactly bother me, but didn't impress me either. Until I got it and used it. Now - love the silver bar.
