    Why should anyone convince you not to? You are a free person to choose whatever device that you want. Very strange thread. Why ask? Go and buy whatever pleases you. Don't get this??????,

    I have a moto G a Z30 and a Q5 and I fully recommend that you do get the Z30 if you actually can get one it's the bees knees you'll be amazed! I'm actually only here right now because my moto won't even turn on right now and maybe AC can help

    Hi, thanks for your comment. The only thing that is stopping me so far is like @ios gravity posted, z30 is not unbreakable like moto g, although he posted about z10 so I wanted to ask you, does z30 have a gorilla glass and is like waterproof to an extent like moto g is?

    The reason i'm really interested in z30 is cause it seems to support android apps now.

    I was also wondering does z30 have something like avast anti theft through which I could possibly wipe the mobile if it gets stolen?

    Yes, BlackBerry Protect allows you to remotely wipe the phone, track the phone, lock the phone, display a message on the screen, and force it to make a loud ear bleeding sound....which is helpful when you can't find the phone in your house while it's on vibrate/silent.

    I found that on z30 if you enter your password incorrectly 10 times, it automatically wipes your phone clean and there is no way to override that setting. That kind of sucks.

    One thought as a guy who finally bought a new car after 18 years...will your BlackBerry pair with any new in car tech? I realized that my WP that I had prior to my MAXX would have rendered thousands of dollars worth of in car tech useless to me from a variety of manufacturers...(I ended up with Toyota). You may not care but just another thing to consider. My MAXX plays nice with my Toyota's etune system...I know Mercedes and Apple are kissing up big time now. What a shock for you when you go for a new car and can't access basic apps.

    He is just asking for opinions on strengths and weaknesses of the phone, he didn't mean to literally stop him. Some ppl are plain thick.

    Well I made the mistake to sell my Z30 to buy an android phone. I needed a dual SIM

    Oh I forgot how android is frustrating!! I want my Z30 back!

    Whether navigating the home screens, or doing regular things like email, instant messaging, phone calls etc...

    And the blackberry touch screen keyboard is just so good at making typing easier. There is no other keyboard that comes close.

    And I miss the hub, overall there is still no phone with a better user experience even after 2 years.

    I want my Z30 back !!




    As soon as there is a BlackBerry 10 dual SIM, I fully quit Android.

    Funny, I just switched from a Z30 to a Moto G 2nd Gen and not looking back. BB10 has a lot going for it, but lack of popular apps has always been a huge weakness for it. The native Facebook and Twitter apps are buggy and in dire need of updating. And if you use Google products and services, you won't be able to use most of them on the Z30. You can run Android apps on it, but it does not support Google Play Services.

    The Z30 hardware is fantastic, though, and the OS itself is solid. If you value productivity and communication above all else, it might be a good fit for you.

    The Z30 is an awesome phone. After 1 year mine is still in near-perfect condition. Unfortunately I have to sell it as I need applications that I simply cannot hack onto my Z30, most notably the Car2Go app. Calgary has a relatively inexpensive way of renting a car for short periods, but you need the phone app to get into the car. I have a cheap tablet the app is installed on, but for it to work i need to bring the tablet along and turn on hotspot on my phone.
