    Yeah, I'm not a fan of putting something the size of a book next to my face when making a call.

    As a Q10 user I often visualize replacing the keyboard by stretching the screen down - as a full touch device. I believe this would measure out to around 4.5 - 4.7". I love the roundedness of the Q10 (top and bottom, not just the corners) and would love to have the same shape form applied to a full touch device. I'm not a fan of the typical rectangle form seen on current slab phones.

    I use a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and a Z10. Personally I would absolutely love a BlackBerry with the same dimensions of the Note 3. I am a BlackBerry lover, and have been for years. I keep hoping that they will come out with something on the order of the Note 3.

    Z30 is the right size, i felt the Z10 was a tad too small but the Iphone 6+ is too big

    My wifey just got a iphone 6 and for sizewise the Z30 is just perfect for holding in one hand

    Good point. But I got so used to the 5" screen on my Z30 that don't think I could go any smaller. Maybe it's just me.

    Same here... I love the 16:9 5" screen on my Z30. I think BlackBerry could still make a more compact and lighter Z30 while retaining the 5" screen. Other than that, the Z30 is perfect for me.

    I think the z30 is the perfect size for an all touch device. The nexus 6, galaxy mega etc are way too big for my liking

    Anything above a super slim bezelled 5 inch screen phone is a two hander.

    I agree. With narrower bezel's the Z30 size could easily fir a 5.2 inch screen and remain a mainly one handed device.

    I love the Z30.... if BlackBerry could keep the 5" screen, but make the next model lighter and more compact it would be ideal!

    I want them to make a note 4 size phone. This gives them space to do more with active frames and the OS. 5.5-5.7 is a good size. 6 inches is it for me. That's a big azz phone lol.

    All you folks talking about super slim bezels. I can think of nothing worse. You need to be able to put your hands around something when you hold a device otherwise you end up activating touch functions unintentionally. This is what happens with the horribly thin Samsung galaxies. Horrible to hold.

    Some bezel is good for ergonomics and some thickness and weight is good for grip (also allowing for higher capacity battery inside). The Z30 proportions seem perfect to me.

    I think 5inch should be better than what ever in BB but improving the services is the most important such as downloading and internet searching ext..
    BB serves should be much better and faster and involve most of other entertaining app in the world with BBM

    I thought the Z30 would be too big for me to use when I was on my Z10.but once I had the Z30 in hand and using it daily. Now I wouldn't want anything smaller then the z30.

    Make it the same as the classic (little shorter than the z30) and get a 4.7 or 5.0 screen in there.

    Same idea I have had since the new OS came out. I dislike the big rectangular shape of the z10 and despise the battery life. If BlackBerry would create your idea, THEY WOULD BE #BACK!

    Before BB decides to do another touch ... it should heavily consider:
    Thinner bevel, license new touch screen technologies over the long haul -
    Enable when cracked the SCREEN and touch gestures/tap actions WORK!
    My screen is smashed.
    Every thing still works perfectly.

    Fully agree with the OP, the Z10 was the perfect full touch size. Would be good to go a little larger, perhaps 4.6inch. But there is still a need for a large 5"+ size full touch. A nice 5.5" Z50 would be great.

    What would the maximum allowable screen size considering the Z10 dia mentions? Probably a 4.5inch phone.

    I agree that the Z10 is a very comfortable size but it could be thinner as well.

    Nah moto x original is smaller then the z10 with a 4.6 screen. Considering that a z10 with design refinements should easily get a bigger screen then that

    The original Moto X was such a great size. The Z30 is very acceptable. Look below at the screen body ratio. The iPhone loses out because of the home button.

    Z10 is perfect size. Ya they could increase the screen if they decreased the bezel. Other wise leave it alone. I hope they use the same body and just upgrade the spec. I love the feel of z10 in my hand such an awesome phone

    If they make another all touch device that's much bigger than the z30 I won't buy it. The z30 to me is the perfect size.

    I'm also using a 2nd gen moto x and it's just a bit too big.
