    First I know there is a forum for z30 but I wanted more people to see it

    I had a friend get me the employee deal where they could get the z10's for $99. While I was picking them up I asked if he had a z30 and to my surprise he let me see it. I didn't do any digging because I didn't want to impose. I just felt the device and did a browser comparison.

    Obviously it is bigger and it felt noticeably heavier than my z10. It was slightly rounded vs squared off. I picked Engadget. Com as I know I've never been there before and he said the same. The z30 was blazing fast and just rocked my z10.

    His was Verizon branded but we were both using Rogers. I'm now certain I will be getting a z30 when it comes out!

    Please don't take this as a review. I just wanted to share my excitement with fellow enthusiasts.

    I submitted this post last night.
    I played with a Z30 tonight. Gorgeous design, solid construction, good heft and comfortable fit in the hand. A bit taller, wider and thicker than the Z10 but still easy to use one handed. The OS was silky smooth with no noticeable lag, the gestures were precise and the display was crisp and sharp. Don't know what the specs were nor which OS version it was running but I do know it won't be called the Z30 or the A10. It belongs to a beta tester who works at one of the mobile providers here in Barbados, he told me it won't be available in our market until the Christmas holidays. No prob, that'll be my Christmas gift to myself.

    I don't mind heavier phones, and almost wish my Z10 was a little heavier.

    The more I read about the Z30, the more I want to buy one.

    Pretty sure I will be switching over to the Z30. My Z10 is great but why not if I get a good deal.

    I'm certainly intrigued by the Z30. I don't know if I want one yet, though. The size concerns me as I don't want something too much bigger than my Z10. At the same time, if the Z30 has greatly improved battery life over the Z10 and has some capabilities that my Z10 doesn't (besides Miracast), I'd be more wiling to pick one up.

    Initially I wasn't really into the Z30, but the more I see, the more I'm intrigued by it. Perhaps I'm replacing my Z10 after all...

    I will wait 6 months for the usual price collapse and look to replace my Z10 then.

    As mentioned the phone was a Verizon phone. He mentioned they just run on different frequencies. I can't help but wonder if there is less network traffic around here and that contributed to the speed difference. We were both on 4G but his was more like super LTE.

    Since I'm buying the phone outright I'd be curious if that makes any difference. If it does I would get mine from the US.

    Any thoughts?

    I hope they release it soon as I'm trying to convince someone to get BlackBerry instead of Samsung but he wants a bigger screen!
