    This is very subjective. You NEED to go to store and try it out or borrow from a friend to try first.
    Been on Z30 for a while now. it is fine. The Z10 size is easier to type while driving but accuracy on Z30 is better for me.

    I agree with deremi. Your results may vary. For me, the Z30 feels comfortable to hold and I can do many tasks one-handed. When typing, I typically will use both hands. I used to have the Droid Maxx which was approximately the same size. When I upgraded from the iPhone to the Maxx, it took time to get used to a larger phone.

    I just recently moved from the Z10 to the Z30 and I find the extra screen real estate on the Z30 is worth it. I have smaller hands so I find I need to use two hands to type efficiently and accurately but do not find it uncomfortable.

    I would definitely recommend the Z30 over the Z10. For me it was the screen size, battery life (almost 2 days for me) and snappier processor.

    I had the same ideas when I got my Z30, Is this going to be to big for me compared to the Z10. But once I started using it on a regular basis I realized that the size of the phone is PERFECT for me . I feel like they used the real estate of the phone much better on the Z30. But as others have said it might be best for you to hit up a store that has one and give it a quick run through. But the size for me is amazingly perfect

    I moved from the Z10 to Z30 a couple of months ago, at first the increase in size was very noticeable, in a good way, but now it just feels right, in fact it could still be bigger and not feel too big. I still have my Z10, and it now feels too small, I imagine it's easier to go bigger than it is to go smaller, bigger is better in my opinion.....let the jokes begin..lol

    Z30 is a two hand typing phone. But the better processor, bigger screen, awesome battery makes it worth it. Even though I need two hand for typing, it doesn't feel huge. Everything else just seems small now.

    I came from a 9650 with the QWERTY keyboard to the z30. I'm also a small guy, only 5'2. Honestly the z30 is very big and I need two hands to type properly. One handed typing is difficult, but I prefer it because it prevents me from texting and driving.

    Also, I'm really enjoying such a large screen. Lots of real estate and beautiful colors.

    I think it depends on your body size and hand size. I think if your a small framed female with tiny hand the phone may be a big goofy looking and ubwieldy. If your a 6 foot 2 inch male you should have no problems. Like clothing, you just need to try it on for yourself

    I am 5'8 and i can use the Z30 with one handed typing for the most part due to swiping but two handed operations/typing is definitely a nobrainer over a Z10.

    I don't have large hands and have found the adjustment from my 9930 to the Z30 to be fairly quick. Most of my normal use is one handed but my typing is a mix of one handed and two.

    Driving and such is a different story. When paired to my BT radio or BT earearpiece I just press the period/microphone key and dictate my texts or emails and send, all onehanded, safe and accurate. I love that ability and I have to say the voice recognition is one of the most accurate I've seen. The only way to go.

    Not sure if you are referring to me or the OP
    I don't manually text and drive but I do dictate texts hands free to the phone through BT and when I'm at a light or stop, I just hit send. That action is no different than you changing the station on your radio.

    I'm not so sure that texting while driving is good on any phone haha. *I just read you dictate, so that's better. However you are correct its honestly what you prefer.
    I myself prefer the size of the z10 myself, but hey its subject to personal opinion.

    Personally, I would say it feels big, but not huge. One handed typing is completely possible with a bit of reach, but not strain. I'm more than happy that I upgraded and size was my primary concern.

    I really prefer the size of Z10.... but that's just me
    Go and take a Z30 put it in your hands and see if It fits to you
    It's like buying clothes
