    Rather weird, but not sure what got into me today. I have a Z10 & Q10, and switch between the two, weekly.

    I've been saving for months now to get the Passport (or whatever device BlackBerry are expected to release in September 2014), and roll on today, I almost bought a Z30 from the BlackBerry website.

    Not sure why, but now I feel I just want a Z30, over a Passport. I bet lots of apps, and the likes don't work initially on the Passport, and I don't really have time for all that.

    The Z30 won't be seen as 'old' technology as soon as the Passport is released, will it? I guess this is more of a rhetorical question...

    It would make sense that any screen issues you get with Q10 apps would also carry over to the Passport since they are both square screens.

    After having the Z10 for over a year and just pulling the trigger on the Z30 about 2 weeks ago, this phone is where it's at. The ultimate BlackBerry 10 experience. This is what they should have launched with. It just does everything better and is so Beautiful. The one and only gripe that I had was that the Z30 screen, although bigger, isn't as good looking as the Z10. After a few days with her though, I don't care or notice. It was definitely worth it. Get it. Do it. Now.

    Agreed. Wonderful phone. I have a Note 3 as well; great but the z30 is the one I use first!

    Ya. I've lost interest in the passport kinda. Waiting for a press conference or a release date... nothing... it's on for 0 bucks with an upgrade at Rogers and I think in gonna do the Z30. I feel like BlackBerry screwed up here. Dragging this out, releasing reviews n pics and nothing else. Next

    In my opinion, the Classic is more "old tech" compared to the Z30.

    I have had my z39 for over a week now and live it! I have had a z10 and q10 but this phone really make the os a pleasure to use. The keyboard is great on the larger screen and the device is great quality. I feel this is a phone I can keep for a good while. Really have no interest in the passport.

    ...those with a Z30 already, but initially owned a Z10, does the camera on the Z30 work better?

    Some have reported a difference, but I haven't seen anything to that effect. The Z30 can capture some incredible shots. Just take a look at the 'Post photos taken with your z30' thread!

    I did the same thing. I was waiting for the passport but got the Z30 when Bell dropped it to $0 for an upgrade. Don't regret it. I'll still get a passport but I'll wait a little while longer.

    They have the same camera but I think the Z30 is quicker at taking pictures and rotating. When I had my Z10 sometimes the screen wouldn't rotate or it would lag when taking pictures but with the Z30, everything is a tad bit snappier and more responsive because of the upgraded hardware internals. The pictures will be the same but the picture taking is a little better. 10.3 comes with some awesome camera goodies, I'm excited for it. Panorama, slow mo video, timer, the ability to save your time shift pics for later editing... can't wait for 10.3!

    I bought a Z30 to try when I already had a Q10. And I just could not get used to the BlackBerry touch keyboard.

    As great as the touch keyboard is, I just cannot type without looking at the keyboard.

    ...the more you use it, the more you can type without looking. Once the device learns your typing skill, and words that you commonly use, you can. Seriously

    I haven't noticed a difference in actual camera performance, but, imo, the Z10 screen is more crisp and color accurate. It's the same camera with the same options and features. However, I have noticed that when checking out the threads on CB about posting pics taken with the Z10/Z30 that the Z30 loads the pics very noticeably faster.

    One of the typing improvements I enjoy is how the os learns your typed words and auto corrects for the most part os pretty accurate. Much more accurate than android and ios. The on-screen keyboard is super easy to use and with the flick motion of words popping up it makes typing correctly easy.

    After ditching my glitchy z10 about a month ago and getting a Samsung S5, i realized how superior BB10 as an OS is to Android.
    That being said, i just bought my z30 today and i am happier than a pig in sh!t.

    I'm glad to be back!!

    I 100 percent feel the Z30 is a two year phone .....tomorrow.! If you want a real keyboard then get one. Realistically and basically, what is the Z30 missing? Your vanity? Your urge to buy something new? You cant use the same phone for two years? I dont do that anymore but went 2 1/2 years with a Curve.

    The bottom line is this. If you can afford it, get a Z30. This is an Historic achievement by a company the media wants out of business and the people who know better declare it the best phone and OS on the Planet.
    Its so amusing! This is one screwed up industry.

    I will say this. It is certainly not like I need a new phone (I have a Z10 & Q10), I just felt that the Z30 has been out for a while now, and all issues should have been worked out. Virtually a perfect time to buy; even more so with the Passport being released soon...
