    Funny how when the Z10 came out, the 4.2" screen was perfect and awesome with the Android phones being way too big (they won't even fit in your pocket!!!).

    Now the Z30 is the perfect size and people couldn't go back to using the 4.2" screen on the Z10, bunch of hypocrites lol.

    I like it. Did not find it weird at all when switching from a Z10 to Z30. Enjoy reading articles and posts while on the bus.

    Yeah... always amazed when I use my brother's iPhone. How do they live with that small screen! Even the Jay Leno iPhone 5 is too small.

    When the specs of the z30 were released, I thought holy that is way too large. But after some thought between the z30 and the q10. I am so glad I picked the 30. It is extremely easy to hold. My little finger is on the bottom of the phone while the phone rests on my other 3 fingers. The weight of the phone keeps it in place. I can type with my thumb and reach all the letters. I prefer this for BBM or text if I were writing a longer email I'd switch to horizontal and use both hands.
    My biggest fear what was not being able to keep the phone in my front pocket. The phone is thin enough that it is barely noticeable.
    I am so happy with this phone,
    I wish BlackBerry would get the word out on this phone. I have not seen one AD on TV. Well don't watch much TV right now, too busy surfing the Web on my phone.

    Don't think the op asked for your negative-nancy-name-calling input. Just because a lot of people thought the z10 screen was perfect doesn't mean that *these* people thought it was perfect, therefore they would not be hypocrites and your comment is out of line . . . @55h01e

    I saw my first Z30 today. All I had been seeing were the plastic demo units. The screen is crisp and I thought brighter than the Sony Z1.

    It's a nice big screen. Nothing to dislike about that. Z30 is a beautiful piece of design art. So nice and professional looking. BlackBerry did a heck of a job building this device.

    I just came over to Z30 from my Z10, I've only had it for a couple of hours. I unfortunately am going to be honest here and say that the Z10 screen is much crisper especially when it comes to the text and icons. The fonts on the Z10 are much blacker and you can easily see the icons are higher definition. The whites on the Z10 are also much whiter. The Z30 whites seem grayish. The one thing the Z30 has over the Z10 is the blacks are deeper thanks to the AMOLED (with the exception of the text) and I guess that is in part why they are pushing the dark theme. The icons on the Z30 also look a little more squished when placed next to the Z10. Because of the lower resolution everything on the Z30 looks noticeably softer. In my opinion the difference is hugely noticeable but I am also know to be OCD.

    Hopefully I'll get used to this, but right now having a little bit of regret.

    My thoughts exactly! The Z10 was given so much praise for its form factor and how well it fit in the hand, how easy it was to type on it, and now the Z30 along and people seem to think that a Z10 is now impossible to use.

    No, it's not available in South Africa yet.

    I'm hoping since I use the z10 on minimum brightness all the time except in direct sunlight the z30 won't look too bad

    I absolutely love my Z30. By far, this is the best blackberry device ever! And the screen is flat out amazing.

    I was concerned about upgrading my beloved bold 9900 to a full touch screen. I was worried that I would hate it. But within a few hours, I was sold completely. Put it into an otterbox defender, and I am very happy.

    Just had my wife's Z10 updated to 10.2... but it still small, a bit too light, and screen is not bright enough. Now she wants my Z30!

    Saw my first Z30 today. For those in the GTA the Bell store at Bayview Village has a BlackBerry rep there with a live display unit. It was loaded with apps. The sound and video was fantastic. Compared to my Z10 the 5" screen might be a bit large for one handed use (for me anyways). Reaching the top left was pretty difficult but it definitely has me thinking of upgrading to the Z30. The rep was very knowledgeable about the specs and features and what's new in 10.2. He gave me a BlackBerry pen and screen cleaner not as good as the gloves that are touch screen compatible that I was able to get one I bought my Z10 but still some BB swag which is always nice.

    I replaced the Z10 with the z30. No way I'm I turning back. This phone is the best phone ever. Especially the fact I had 10.2 two weeks before it was rolled out to the rest. The feel of the phone in my hand is do much better. I think the Z10 needs the back cover feel. I don't use a case like I did with the Z10. Don't need one. At first I couldn't find a case but I am loving it

    Super AMOLED screen is noticeably better than the LCD screen on the Z10. Colors look great and 5 inches is the perfect screen size! Feels really good in my hand without a case, but a little too bulky with one.

    Can more people comment on the build design and weight. I hear a lot of people say it feels like a solid great device, but I remember how annoying the torch got with its weight for me.

    It is noticeably heavier than the z10. I picked up my z10 tonight so I could play real racing 3 (I have no idea why it's not available for the z30) and right away the z10 felt light.

    But the screen also seemed too small now so I wouldn't go back. I'm happy with the z30.

    At first I found the size to be quite large comin from the Z10, but after a few hours it becomes awesome!
    Do you still have your z10 as well? I have both and now find that I have got so used to the z30 that the z10 now just seems too small for me.
