    Great? Too big? Just right? Does it feel awkward in the pocket?
    For those who own the Z10 as well, which screen size between the two do you prefer most? I wish the Z10 screen was a bit bigger around 4.5 inches (sigh)

    I don't have one (I use a Z10), but I haven't heard a single negative response to the new screen. Here in Toronto I've seen one and the owner was telling me how much better it was than his S4 he got rid of for it.

    Assuming you live somewhere in Southern Africa like your last name suggests, has the Z30 released down there yet? Are you looking at getting one?

    I don't own one but I had one in my hands last week. Very nice phone, I'm going to dump my z10, Playbook 32 g, and Ipad 1 and pick up a z30 as soon as they go. Throwing the tablets on Kijiji tomorrow, then the z10 as soon as the tablets sell.

    Well I've had the Z10 and Q10 now own the Z30 this phone is great, I love the big screen it looks great. This is a very fast device you can not slow it down. It's about the size of a Z10 with a commuter case on it, fits the hands perfect. The typing is unreal the bigger keyboard makes it some fast to type on.

    Feels comfy. Was never one of those that put my phone in my pants so its made no difference in my Jacket. Love the screen size; it's easier to read without pinching and zooming. Natural Sound system is sweet.
    I'm just loving my Z30 more.

    The screen is great. I have turned the brightness down to about 40%. Easy on eyes but great colours and definition. I asked the question earlier whether the Z30 would replace a tablet. Largely I think it will.

    At first I found the size to be quite large comin from the Z10, but after a few hours it becomes awesome!

    It's much easier to look at on the eyes.

    Any weirdness of popular apps or sideloaded apps due to the few less pixels?

    I originally thought it's going to be too big for me, 2 days later, got used to it. Now I love it, Z10 feels small now.

    Hence the reason I'm dumping my tablets. I personally find that I have been using my tablets less since I got my z10, I'm sure once I have a z30 the time with my tablets would diminish.

    I honestly can't see any jagged pixels, I don't know what the fuss is about, maybe I'm blind.

    LOVE IT.

    Takes a few days to get used to after the Z10, but it's gorgeous. I definitely prefer the Z30 overall. It even physically feels nicer to use (swipes, gestures are smoother). It's not quite as bright as the Z10 and therefore not as well lit in full sunlight - but the extra size, colour reproduction, and overall feel make it worth the upgrade.

    Love it, not using the playbook much after getting my Z30,
    The screen and colors are awesome, and the phone is well made so its nice to hold and feels real study.

    Great feedback. A concern of mine that I also forgot to mention in the original post is the Z30's screen ppi. Is 295 ppi sufficient? Do you wish it had more? With the Z10 having 330 ppi, the Z30 is a slight downgrade... do you notice it all? I'm guessing it's not a deal breaker for most but you would think that with the Z30's retail price the ppi would be a bit higher.

    ps, how is the new flipboard app?!

    As I wrote above 295 vs 330 I don't see a difference. Again maybe I'm blind. Flipboard app works fine, nothing different from the Android version.

    My poor Z10 is collecting dust now and looks so small compared to my Z30. Man the 30 is a gorgeous mobile. It's perfect in the hand and runs so smoothly.

    I compared z10 and z30 side by side yesterday for a couple of minutes. Brightness was higher on Z10, but Z30 was bright enough for me so that's not a problem. The sharpness of the screen though, I really couldn't notice a difference. Sure if you stick your eyes on the screen you might see something, but for practical usage there is no difference. Colours seemed fine and I could see everything as it should be.
    Performance wise, I noticed a difference. When I close apps and quickly move to the app icon screen, there is a little frame slowdown. I didn't see this happen on the Z30.

    This is an awesome device! I did turn on my Z10 last night and did a screen comparison. The Z10 is definitely way brighter and more crisp! But the black on the Z30 is better I prefer the size of the Z30 much better to my Z10.
