    I'm still not sure I understand the difference between these two phone other than the z30 is bigger?

    Can someone explain?

    Sure.

    Z30 has a higher-clocked processor, and has the same graphics processor as the Galaxy S4. It also employs Paratek antenna technology which is supposed to yield better reception and better battery (due to less signal-hunting).

    The Z30 also supports Miracast (wireless video for screen mirroring) and WiFi Direct, which the Z10 does not.

    Performance is better. Build quality is slightly better.

    Also a bigger battery (1800mAh vs 2880) and an LED screen, for additional battery saving.

    I get reception on my Z30 when I'm taking the BC ferry, where when I had my Q10 it was patchy

    I had the Z10 for about 6 months and it was good... but when the Z30 came out it was just better in every way. I sold both phones on and am using a Q10 (which has great call reception btw) but I miss my Z30 a lot.

    We are an active family and form factor is an issue. Hard to run, workout and cycle with a larger phone to store or carry. I find that the LCD display on the Z10 to be better in sunlight vs my Q10. As for battery life, we do a battery swap. I have had instances where my phone was not charged properly at night and all I have to do is swap the battery out in the morning and continue with my day. That would not be possible with the Z30. I also have small hands and found the Z30 to be harder especially with one han usage. The Z10 is a pleasure to use with coffee in one hand. Not too small and not too big.

    The Z30 is definitely more powerful but the Z10 is a great phone with its own merits too.

    Glidewells in the marketplace is selling the Verizon version for just $325, if you are buying off contract--good price.

    If you care about battery life at all, avoid the Z10.

    Or build quality. Or having a host of more features like Miracast and Wifi direct. Or just having a faster phone. No one needs a phone as bright as the Z10 unless they appreciate having their corneas seared off...

    Can't understand those troll threads.

    It's like asking: should I get an iPhone 1 or iPhone 5S?

    If course it's the fabulous Z30 because of the above mentioned reasons. Ffs.

    What makes this a troll thread? This is the same type of question CrackBerry posters have been asking for a long time. Posters who were moving to BlackBerry, or upgrading their current BB device, would often ask whether they should get the latest Curve or the latest Bold. Even though the Bold was the top of the line BB device, the Curve was the perfect phone for many. I'm sure the Z30 is "fabulous," but in reading through this thread it is clear that some consumers would be best served by getting a Z10. I know if I were looking for a new BlackBerry I would not consider the Z30 because I do not like the large screen size.

    Z30 is a good device but with a very poor screen. They intentionally made the screen dim as hell because they needed a way to keep battery life good

    I let my mother borrow my Z10 to use until she replaced her broken phone. I loved my Z10 and hated to part with it. Now that I have a Z30.. she can keep the Z10. Don't get me wrong because I think both are great phones, I just think they're in two separate categories. The Z10 is a great budget phone and probably the best small screen phone on the market next to the iPhone. The Z30 has stiffer competition but the build quality, OS performance, and battery life prove to be such an improvement over the Z10 that I'll never go back. Also, the speakers are probably the best in the market. Screen size isn't an issue for me because I'm used to my Note 3, but if you think the Z30 has a bit too much screen for your hand, go with the Z10. You won't be happy with a phone that's too big to use.

    Z30 is hands down better. We have both devices in our company. Z30 could very well be the best device on the market. Just awesome.

    I have both the Z10 and the Z30. The Z10 I use on AT&T GoPhone and the Z30 is on Verizon. I love both phones but the Z30 is the winner in almost every category. The only things I like about the Z10 over the Z30 is the Z10 is easier to drop in your pocket and go and the ability to replace the battery on the go too. The Z30 is my daily driver and the Z10 is my work/backup phone.

    It's a great screen. Really don't think you have a true grasp on it. Iphone users claim their screen is so good in the sun. My buddy wanted to show me and the wife a photo on his phone the other day......outside in the shade.....ooh no good we have to go in the garage.....to see it. So in real life it's no better.
