    I have posted allot if my experiences with the z10 and the z30 on these forums. I bought a z30 a month ago and ended up selling it to a client that just had to have it and I couldn't refuse the offer.

    So now I am back on my unlocked z10 100-3 and I find I am liking the z10 more, wait!!! Don't start flogging me now, I think the z30 is an awesome device, but I like the form factor of the z10 for my everyday use.

    The screen on the z30 is nice, after being back on the z10 I have noticed that the z30 screen is more pixilated compared to the LCD one on my z10. I do miss the larger screen, but the z10 screen seems a little brighter to me.

    The size of the z30 made it difficult for one handed operation where the z10 just fits my hand perfectly and I can easily navigate with one hand. The build on the z30 seemed to say quality more then the z10.

    I feel the z30 is a much smoother device and seems faster then the z10. The main thing the z10 has going for it is price, I can find a nice used unlocked one for 175-200 dollar range here in the USA. Now that has been pushed out here in the USA, the z10 is a great device for the money.

    Battery, well there is no comparison to the superb battery life on the z30. I have bought a larger aftermarket battery for the z10, so even though it's not quite up to oar with the z30, it's fine for my everyday use.

    I will buy another z30 in the future if I get a deal on one, for now I am sticking with my trusty z10 and enjoying being back in the BlackBerry World. Just thought I would pass my experience along.

    Thanks for the perspective!
    Welcome back to Z10 land. I love mine as well and have no desire to switch at this point.

    Thanks for the perspective.

    Even though I really like my Z10 and show it off all the time, I really want the stereo external speakers, extra battery life, and faster processor. I think I am addressing the battery issue with the KINPS 2300 mah battery I ordered so my Z10 will have a little more juice, but I would still lover stereo speakers and the faster processor.

    I agree the Z30 is a little too big to use one handed, especially with a case like one of the Otterboxes. Still I will probably but a Z30 when the STA100-1 models become available because I think the pros outweigh the cons.

    I recently got a Z30 too, and honestly the size is not an issue for me, I like them both, the z10 and the z30 equally, I tried to use the q10 for one day and I couldn't, so for me is either the z10 or z30.

    I just bought a z30 and gave my 10 to my daughters. Honestly I do like the size of the 10 better, but the speakers and battery of the 30 make the switch worth it. My daughters just got the 10 today and they are hooked. 14 and 13 years old and all their little friends have iPhone and droids. I'm hoping they can make some converts lol.

    Thanks for the post OP. I love my Z10. I thought about a Z30 but after playing with one I found I liked my Z10 more.
