    I don't know. I think the size is probably bigger than the average consumer wants. Ideal size is probably somewhere between 4.5 to 4.7 inches. The Z30 is a great phone but I feel like the screen size is still to small for normal websites and bigger than it needs to be for mobile websites while almost unusable in one hand.

    The problem with saying that is we can say this for just about anything. IPhone 4s should of been iPhone 5s. IPhone 5c should of been cheaper. Q5 should of been cheaper. Should of should of.

    Pffft the z30 screen isn't even that big. The phone is not much wider then the z10. It's just better use of screen space

    The side and bottom bezels are almost identical. They shrunk the top bezel significantly which is unfortunately the only place where bezel size doesn't matter as you hold the phone from the bottom one handed. I have a Z10 and Z30 and the 10 feels tiny in comparison when I pick it up one handed.

    Yup.
    Hindsight is 20/20. You've got to hunt where the ducks are and the full touch market is the vast majority of the market. I'm not sure it would have made that much difference which launched first with the way things have gone.

    I loved my Z10! If you're talking OS, maybe I'd agree, but the device was/is pretty awesome.

    I love my Z10 too, just love my Z30 more. The battery, speed and screen size made huge difference for me.

    I wouldn't have a Z10 if it weren't for the contract. I'll be trying to break for the next Z

    I totally agree with this post. I just upgraded from Q10. Had there not been a battery issue I would have gone with the Z10 based on the size. That aside the Z30 is a terrific product. It's taking a lot of getting used to switching from the Q. I wonder, if BlackBerry does come out with new flagship devices, will they listen to their customers and offer a larger screen Q10 for example or a better version of the Z10 perhaps.

    I prefer the smaller size of the Z10. Actually I prefer the size of my 9800, but there gets to be a point at which you must give up the plusses of a smaller device in order to have a more functional product. I think the Z10 strikes this balance well.

    I don't want a 5"+ jumbotron in my pocket.

    I agree with the OP as the Z30 packed into a Z10 size would have been awesome...battery life included but that alone wouldn't have been enough....advertising ....advertising.....advertising, should have been cramming it down the publics throat for months prior to its release, I mean it's your "Hail Mary" so to speak and the launch should have been nothing shy of spectacular. It was basically us faithful on CB that really knew anything about these devices.

    Have you held a Z30? I was surprised thought it would be bigger

    Not that I want to reopen the can of worms, but doesn't the battery present a major issue for you in the z10? That was the deciding factor got me. A new z10 with extended battery performance and I'd put my 30 up for sale I suppose.

    Z10 battery life isn't much of a issue for me since it's equal or better to what I had on my previous device. And the battery combo pack works well.

    I think the OS being new was one of the main issues, carriers in the UK have been whining about glitches and OS bugs, but never about the phones themselves. Personally I think the Z10 with a bigger battery would have been better, which is what put me off it at first, and why I waited for the Z30, despite the size bring a bit too big for me. Advertising is critical though, as people still don't know about BBM being released, let alone new BlackBerry phones! We need to be aggressive, like, Samsung aggressive.

    The problem is BlackBerry is not Apple. They should get things right from the beginning. Z10 is probably just an year old but already outdated. No Miracast and WIFI direct even my old Android phone can do WIFI direct. At least they could have added a bigger battery. There is no doubt BBRY was over confident and didn't care much or underestimated the importance of BB10 launch. And no need to say Z10 was over priced way too much.

    The problem with saying that is we can say this for just about anything. IPhone 4s should of been iPhone 5s. IPhone 5c should of been cheaper. Q5 should of been cheaper. Should of should of.

    Not sure why Z10 was 1280 x 768 and the rest of the phones are 720. This shows how confused BlackBerry were.

    Is a new Z expected in 2014? It'd be cool, but I haven't heard of anything along these lines. Maybe someone can elaborate?
