    Can I get a quick look on what you like and don't like, any regrets, is it worth the change, etc.

    Thank you.

    I would say the top things are the amazing battery life, beautiful screen and how smooth the OS and apps run. The keyboard is amazing too, it's bigger and so smooth.

    I have picked up my z10 a few times and I can't go back. It seems so tiny now lol. Don't miss anything at all from the Z10..
    Definitely worth the change!

    From Z10 to Z30. Very happy, no regrets. Got unlocked phone trough Amazon, said Singapore on case ( ??), works perfectly well with T-Mobile in USA. It is a 100-2 model, no issues so far. (Wonder what is the difference with 100-5)

    Got Skype (works perfect), WA, BBM, all emails, sound/ music is impressive. Screen is bright and crisp. My Z10 looks pale and dull in comparison (still nice).

    Getting used to larger size but it is manageable

    Exactly the same as Sharma. I would hate going back now. The screen size is such a winner. 10 months ago I couldn't fathom using an all touch screen device as a daily driver, used the Z10 for 8 months and now the Z30. I used my father in laws Q10 last weekend, I'm not sure I'd ever want to go back. The screen real estate is the tipping point.

    You can add me to Sharma & Toddboy's comments as mine are identical. I had the fortune to try each of the Q10, Z10 and Z30 - the Z30 is (by far) my most favourite handset, ever.

    So far I like the Z30 better than the Z10 only complaint which is minor would be some apps are not available aka Optik for remote Telus, I had it on my Z10 but can't find it for the Z30.
    Besides that is a great BlackBerry!!!

    My wife and I both upgraded to the z30 from the z10 and we both love the larger screen. The next best thing is the superb battery life (which will get better with 10.2.1 when it comes out). Would not go back!

    The only reason I switched from Z10 to Z30 is battery life. Other than that, my black Z10 was almost perfect.

    iPhone to Z10 to Z30 owner here

    Love the Z30 size and rich colors compared to the Z10. I thought it might feel too big or heavy but it's perfect now. Took about a week to adjust.

    Z30 battery is GREAT compared to the Z10 but I sorely miss the flexibility of swapping an old battery for a fresh one. I actually think the Z10 wins in the battery department for this feature alone. I doubt many others stare this opinion.

    Z30 speakers are much better and I can get a stronger signal with the paratek antenna.

    Other than those things not much is different (for my work flow).

    It's good.

    But I wish the battery was removable. Would like to be able to 'kill' the phone completely.

    I just upgraded to Z30 from Z10 last week, fantastic phone, better battery, larger screen, fast response, better speak, better antenna, feels a little more solid in hand, better dark theme overall.

    Basically, it's a perfect phone for me at this point. Fully satisfied and highly recommended.

    Ditto all the above positives.

    Depending on the case you add on to the z30 you may feel it's too big in some ways. Use it without any case. Use it without the back panel toi, just to see what it's like.


    I still have the z10 and sometimes I find it too small, sometimes just right. On the z10 the size if the care doesn't matter.

    The Z30 good stuff has already been posted above.

    There's really only 1 bad thing about the Z30. Apps/Games. Not all the apps/games that work on the Z10 are available for the Z30. Consider posting your 'must have' apps/games that are on your Z10 and us Z30 owners can check to see if it's there for you. There's not a lot missing, but when it's your favourite app, it becomes a concern.

    Yeah I notice that there are some apps missing. On my Z10 I had more apps not much difference but for me one that is a must have is Optik record from Telus.
    I see that there is for bell. :-(

    Went from the Z10 to Z30 and never looked back. Now when I pick up my dad's Z10, it honestly feels small and cheap, even though I absolutely loved my Z10. The Z30 feels like a professional device in comparison. It's a great size, feels solid in the hand, the OS runs very very smooth, the speakers are incredible.

    Absolutely great device. It was definitely worth upgrading. If there is anyone out there thinking about upgrading, but still not sure....let me tell you that you won't be disapointed!

    I have had my Z30 for a little bit more than 24 hours now. What is strikingly different (better):

    Battery (huge difference) / screen (size and image) / speakers / typing on the keyboard

    It's worth. The keyboard is great but for my wife the z10 is easier to use because she has small hands. So for some people the z30 could be to big to type with one hand.

    Battery life and Screen size, those are the two biggest things that made this device for me. I loved the Z10 for the size and gestures, the ease of use...just needed that battery life which I know is the goal of all Phone makers. it's a great all round no BS device that is a workhorse but likes to play too.

    Sent flawlessly from my Z30!

    People say z30 is tougher to type on with smaller hands but I beg to disagree. Yes it is tougher to type on with one hand but due to the slide up gesture it doesn't effect it too much.

    I'm a converter from Q10 to z10 and now to z30. I love the z30 and never looked back since.

    Changed to a Z30 from the Z10 yesterday. Picked up my Z30 for way below retail on eBay (I don't think it's worth 450 GBP as the hardware is not representative of that pricepoint).

    It is a superior phone to the Z10. However, I purchase BlackBerry for very specific requirements (which wouldn't normally be of consideration for most mass-market consumers). I don't see it as anything groundbreaking compared to its competitors.

    Z10 -- > Z30. I experienced a little display shock but that wears off and then the look,speed, and incredible battery life become the prominent features. I love this phone.
