    One of my favourite things about the Z30 was the stereo speakers. Watching videos or playing games was awesome because of the stereo speakers.
    I hate the Z10 speakers that faces the bottom because when I watch videos I have to cup my hands at the speakers, or when playing games I have to try and make sure I'm not blocking the speakers with my hands.

    With a 5 inch phone, there should be lots of space to put in stereo speakers! That is one thing that the HTC One that has that is better than the Z30. It is also the phone I would likely get if I were to go Android.

    Come on BlackBerry, give me a phone with stereo speakers!

    If the battery cover is any indication, it has stereo speakers.

    Even if there are, they are not front facing.

    True. But it's better than a mono speaker

    FWIW, the speaker on the Q10 is extremely loud and the Z10 is notable. If the Z30 has stereo, it'd be an impressive setup for sure.

    I know what you mean I have the same problem on my Q10 with the speakers on the bottom. But at least they're loud enough that it's not too much of a problem. Just wish it had been placed somewhere else.

    I agree with this. The sound output of the z10 would be vastly improved with stereo sound. The PlayBook was very nice in that regard. Volume on the z10 could also be enhanced, but the mono really holds it back.

    The Z30 has amazing stereo speakers. The are on the back, but the slots in the backplate angle slightly so the sound projects a little left and right as opposed to straight back.
    HTC One has it beat with the front facing, but outside of that they are the best mobile speakers I've come across (they completely demolish the Z10).

    Phone speakers doesn't really make good sound quality... even if you put bose stereo speakers in it, it still going to sound horrible. your phone speakers aren't design for music. Its gona suck your battery like hell.

    For games? Nah it's not practical i would say.

    Phone speakers are for us to hear other people talk.
    If you want good sound quality for your music or entertainment, get a good headset/ headphone or plug it into your 5.2 channel sound system.

    Htc one have beats audio in it but that still doesn't sound great. You can't hear the bass. You cannot balance the sound of it no matter how good you configure the sh!t in the equalizer.

    Let me generalize it.

    We don't need stereo speakers for phones.

    Off topic?

    I respectively strongly beg to differ.

    I tend to watch watch Netflix from my mobile quite often (travel for work quite a bit and it's my go to when winding down at night). I've had issue getting enough volume on my Z10 and Galaxy Nexus (especially when my hand tends to cover the speaker) and even my iPad. It can really be very frustrating when you're lying trying to hear and have to resort to the cupped hand over speaker move...

    Sound is quite important in that regard - and the Z30 def steps up to the plate.

    I think the Z10's quality is better. My Q10 has a loud popping sound when volume above 70%.

    Systemvolker - I use my headphones a great deal with my phone, however it's not a practical solution to show others a quick YouTube clip. Sometimes I just want to not wear my headphones and play a quick game of something. It's not about replacing the home cinema experience, just making mobile experience a little better.

    Besides, it would give blackberry something many phones don't have. The z30 should have amazing battery life, surely some would be well spent powering better speakers...

    Sound is important and the cupping method is annoying to have to do!

    Perhaps the bottom line here is that the Z30 will, indeed, have stereo speakers. Are we good with that?

    My take is that it's stereo speakers in the bottom with kind of a "ported subwoofer" effect on the side.

    Either way the Z30 is a improvement to the Z10. But I might take my leap with O series.

    Can't wait to see reviews on the Z30 speakers. They dont have to beat the HTC One. I dont expect them to seeing as how they arent front facing but if they are close in comparison, ill be very happy
