    Thanks for sharing this! It's funny, because I had just finished watching it and I was going to share it on CrackBerry myself Anyway, Dan does a really great, updated review on the Z30! Potentially the only video review of the Z30 I have seen that is running 10.2.1 and talks about the newest features and improvements of the device, unlike the mainstream tech sites and channels online. Thanks DadDoes!!!!

    Just finished watching it too. Really nice to see at the end when he says the Z30 is up there with the IPhone and the Samsung, hardware and software wise.
    He doesn't only focus on the android apps ability but also on all the other cool stuff like BBM group features, miracast, usb OTG, ...

    Good job Dan and thanks for your updated review.

    This has been the most in depth review of os 10.2.1 that I have seen. It really takes the time to show what it can do and not just apps.

    Excellent review! Really demonstrates how useful the features are rather than simply listing them out!

    I now own the Z30, but if I didn't, this video would definitely make go out and buy one. It's pretty awesome!

    Hi All,

    Thanks very much for sharing our updated video review! We did update the written review on the site as well, if you are interested - BlackBerry Z30 Review Update, Who Knew .1 Was So Big? | Dad Does

    I just posted in another thread - but wanted to say it here as well - thank you! Most of the information in that review came from suggestions from CrackBerry folks - so thanks for taking the time to educate an iPhone user

    Fun Fact - we have done over 450 videos, and this video, at 11 minutes long, is the longest video we have ever done....and that was with me talking about a mile a minute

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Hey Dan,

    I would like to thank you personally for updating the review after the new OS got released.

    I was really eager to have your thoughts and you delivered as promised.

    I hope now you understand why they call it crackberry. Once you go black... )

    Yes I am...and you should see the looks my wife gives me! Perhaps most impressive of all is that I have now gone over 6 weeks with 2 phones and have somehow managed not to drop or lose either phone....of course I have now jinxed myself and expect both phones to implode in seconds...

    Good to hear, hopefully 10.3 is good enough for you to make the switch fully

    Side note, but has anyone ever told you that your logo kind of looks like you?

    What would you see as the biggest barrier to BB10 adoption at this point?

    Fear of the unknown! Forget the App Gap, there is a BlackBerry Education Gap. In my humble opinion, there is a huge gap between what BlackBerry is doing and what people know BlackBerry is doing. I am of course not talking about people here on CrackBerry - you guys are clearly in the know. I am talking about people like me and the folks who are told by the media that BlackBerry is going bankrupt and the only choice is Android or iPhone. The biggest barrier to BB10 adoption is people have not been educated on what the OS and new hardware has to offer.

    The other problem is the mixed messages I hear floating through the media. I hear BlackBerry is going big on car OS. Then I hear they are going back to phones with keyboards. Then I hear they understand how important the business audience is. So, if I am the average consumer, looking for a cool touchscreen phone, I don't have complete confidence that BlackBerry is 100% committed to updating the Z30 and putting all the resources behind it. Compare this to Apple or Samsung - the average consumer feels very confident that these companies will be in the touch screen consumer phone business for a long time.

    Again, perhaps I am completely wrong about BlackBerry's commitment...but that would prove me right As I said, the issue is an education issue, so if I am misinformed, it is BlackBerry's fault My 2 cents is that more people don't buy BlackBerry because they just don't know what to make of the company or its products right now. Hopefully my review at least shows some of the cool things that BlackBerry is up to.

    Sorry for the long answer...but you ask a great question!

    The executive team of BlackBerry should read DadDoes 's post up there a few times at least.

    That's GOLD.

    DadDoes on post #17 sums it up better and more succinctly than anything I've seen anywhere else. Hope BB sees this one.

    I believe they are committed to the os, since they are making the z3. A lower end model of the z30. BlackBerry is not necessarily leaving consumer market, but targeting prosumers. (people that need to get things done).

    In regards to them going into cars, they already are, they bought the qnx platform a few years ago. Qnx is the BlackBerry 10 os. Qnx operates nuclear plants, cars, medical machines. It's even used by nasa. BlackBerry has been working on a machine to machine platform. I'm very excited to see how blackberry 10 will evolve over the years. I have been amazed how much the os has developed in 1 year.

    Its great to see that you are enjoying the z30. Its an amazing phone.

    So I just watched this review, and it reminded me of how truly versatile these phones can be. It got me thinking about the power of the usb port on the Z30.

    Can anyone answer me this:

    Would it be possible to use my phone to power an external hard drive (bus-powered) as well as an SD card reader? Would I need a powered USB hub?

    Reason being that this setup could be amazing for traveling photographers and videographers.

    Screw all these tech sites. They shouldn't influence how and why you choose electronic products.

    I couldn't agree more. Most people still think of the old BlackBerry OS when they think of BlackBerry. Even when they see the new devices, they're just not educated enough to know how different they really are.
