    I thought my Q10 would hold my attention until the next Q or something else, it did not. I ordered a Z30 from Negri Electronics and received it 2 days ago. It is awesome! I have only used a keyboard BB for a long time and really had no Idea what I was missing. The OS 10 blends perfectly on the larger screen, speed is great, battery life (2 days worth) has been excellent. It is the STA100-5 version and works great so far on AT&T in California, no LTE, but the 4g is full bars everywhere I have been.

    Here is the revelation..... I have been promoting my Q10 to every one that would put up with my blabbering and never seem to get any interest. The Z30 poking out of my pocket or just sitting on my desk has gotten more interest than the Q10 ever had the entire time I have had it.

    ITS THE KEYBOARD THAT MAKES PEOPLE LOOK AWAY AND LOSE INTEREST RAPIDLY. ALL THEY SEE IS THE OLD BB.

    The Z30 exudes slick, modern styling and the OS is an attention grabber.

    Every Crackberry addict should have a Z30 for demonstration purposes at the least.

    That would be nice, but with fewer & fewer carriers supplying the Z30, the only option is to buy it SIM free, and not everyone has the $$$.

    Great phone tho', I agree. Best I've ever owned - and I LOVED my 9900...

    I'm debating with myself when I should try an all-touch BlackBerry
    I've zero interest in a 5'' device however, Z10 is already available at pretty attractive prices but I wonder if it's not a tad old already...yet so far no sign whatsoever of a Z10 successor...Dilemmas!

    But as a Q10 user I totally agree - you can't pitch BB10 with the Q10 to people who don't care about qwerty.

    A good friend of mine is about to replace his iphone 4 with something and one thing he knows for sure it won't be an iphone. He likes the size though so was thinking HTC or Sasmung minis. And yesterday he said he played with a display Z10 and was very surprised of the 'fluency'! That display device was without SIM and ran 10.0.1...I'm showing him now the 10.2.1 experience on my Q10

    Trust me when I say that the 5 in screen is not to big on the Z30, you will even see a lot of the girls starting use it.
    It's such a great device I think it would surprise you. I've had the Q and was always a keyboard guy but the touch keyboard on these devices is the best I have ever seen.

    I'd agree with that. I was wary of a 'big' screen, but I don't even realise - that is until I watch a film or similar and it really comes into its own.

    Several posts lately have talked about BB not being a consumer product, well the Z30 is both a consumer product and a business product. Specifically the Z30 is every bit as much a consumer product as any android or iphone. I cant understand why the Z30 has not gotten the press that it deserves. When I look at reviews, most are all back from October or November, prior to 10.2 and very outdated. Maybe JC can do a stripped down feature by feature video, because I don't see anything coming out of Waterloo...

    Pocketnow did a 10.2.1 update video and so did dad does. This phone with proper marketing will probably sell a lot more. If blackberry can get rid of that old reputation they will sell devices a lot easier.

    I think the reason we don't see any BlackBerry commercial anymore is because BlackBerry has no money for that now.

    No money!

    I'm a girl, I have a Z10 that I still love but now that I'm used to my Z30 I couldn't go back.
    I thought it would be waaaaay to big, but it's not. Is it bigger then the Q/Z10? Dah!!!
    But you get used to it, quickly.
    Love my BlackBerry virtual keyboard <3

    I was worried about the size, but it is great. Everything else (including my z10) feels like a toy next to the 30. Also, the z10 is noticeably snappier than the z10.

    I just upgraded to the Z30 2 days ago from Z10. And must say the Z30 is way better. Love the bigger screen and battery life is amazing. The only issue noticed is the screen brightness on the Z30. The z10 was way brighter and sharper looking.

    Just a case of getting used to going from the LCD screen to this AMOLED.
    I also noticed a vast difference when I switched, I preferred the LCD. But like I said before you get used to it very quickly, screen is no exception and it still really is fantastic

    Also had to get used to the Amoled, missed my Z10's LCD. But once you get used to it...and you will quickly...you'll never want to go back.

    To be honest I think the Z30 screen is brighter, because, for me, it definitely is. But then, I had the brightness so low on my Z10 due to the appalling battery life, that I may as well have carried a torch with me.

    What's quite ironic is that I've only been asked twice 'What phone's that? since owning a Z30, and on both occasions the first comment has been 'nice screen'.

    PPI pah!

    I'm right there with you. My z10 was under 20% brightness. I keep the z30 around 50 so it looks much brighter.

    Indeed. Mine's only at about 20-25%, and it still looks like a lighthouse to me.

    I got a HTC One M8. Hardware is outstanding. I cannot function without the HUB!! So I am currently back on a Verizon Z30 using AT&T sim. Sure it's only 4G but BB10 is so much smoother.
