    After one year with z10 I have had a few issues with speakers,so I have moved over to Z30 and what a machine I love it speed clarity and overall ability to do everything. For those who are contemplating switch do it you will not regret it.

    Glad you like the Z30. I have had my Z10 for a year and I feel the same way. CLEAR screen, fast speed and not a single issue.

    You can expect to have the same speaker issue with the Z30, I have anyway. Blown 3 speakers on my previous Z10 and one on my Z30. I probably would have more blown speakers, but I've just seemed to deal with the crackling of the earpiece now.

    I have some new speakers on order as they are pretty cheap, but still.

    Z30 is a completely different experience. It's what I was expecting from the z10 but the z10 seems soo slow compared to the z30.

    Heh. I couldn't wait to get my hands on It a nd had my work ship it to me in Maui when Rogers shipped the first corporate side devices.

    OK. Main bullet points of why it is better than Z10? Beside it being larger..

    Z30 has better battery life, natural sound speaker, Miracast, USB to go, larger keyboard, faster processor.

    I am sure I missed some. But I am sticking with my Z10 cause it is fast enough for me and I love the size and screen. Will check the Q20 when it comes out

    Faster ui experience.
    Much better battery life for me ( 40 hours vs 18-20)
    Better contrast with this screen (my opinion)
    Feels high end in your hand. Not cheap ie feels more like the q10.
    Did I mention it's faster? Maybe feels more fluid. I was running the leak version before Rogers pushed 10.2.1. After the roger update and adding android apps my hub became horrible leggy. Backed up, wiped and restored from backup and phone was back to being super smooth.

    Do you work around metal filings? There was a member here a few years ago who's speakers kept buzzing. He had his Storm replaced multiple times and finally decided BlackBerry phones were defective. Turned out he worked in a machine shop and the magnet in the speakers pulled in tiny metal particles which caused the speakers to buzz.
    I do work around metal filings. I'm in Automation Maintenance. Never thought of that, but It would make sense as my co-worker was having the same problem.

    But I use my phone at work all the time to look up manuals and parts for certain machines when I don't have the laptop with me out on the floor. I wonder if there's anything I can do to prevent this. Maybe the Otterbox Defender?

    I made the switch back to BlackBerry and a z30 from my iPhone 5s and I am not looking back. I bought a Canadian 100-5 unlocked model.

    The phone is smooth, call quality is excellent and I have become addicted to OS10. I love the Hub, Peek and the Gesturing concept, compared to IOS and and that dam home button to navigate.

    I have also discovered that my need for apps has diminished and I only have a handful of Android apps installed and I try and use native ones whenever possible.

    The keyboard on the z30 is the best I have ever used and my typing has improved greatly and the word prediction function rocks. I couldn't be happier.

    My only long term concern is I am on T Mobile USA who in my opinion is not BlackBerry friendly and I hoping they will still support the brand into the future?

    I do have one advantage that I bought a Rogers Unlocked 100-5 model so I will at least get my updates before T Mobile which eases the pain a little.

    I just thought of a possible idea. Get a HEPA filter, cut out strips that will fit down in the speaker slots and stuff them in. HEPA is an ultra-fine filter which should stop metal particles but still let the sound pass through. Might be worth a try.
    It's there earpiece that is crackling, the external speakers seem fine.

    Get a cheap tablet for looking up manuals. Easier to read anyway.
