BlackBerry Z30 Review
Blackberry Z30 is the latest flagship from BlackBerry, a company that is still trying to figure out the Smartphone world. Except for BlackBerry enthusiasts, a lot of people would like to know what Blackberry has to offer in this new Smartphone. To make it easier, I will highlight the most important features that make Blackberry’s Z30 a high end Smartphone in 2014.
First of all, there is the Z30’s battery life. It’s incredible compared to your average Smartphone. While the iPhone 5s will stay for only 8 hours, the Z30 will stay for an additional 17 hours. This is a necessary feature for a smartphone especially if you use it for business. Talking of business, the Z30 can work miracles when it comes to organizing your stuff. You can be able to access all the notifications, calls and messages in a single click. The Z30’s layout is clear and you can easily check your mail, messages or call register with just one glance. It also makes texting easier with its predictive feature which uses your writing history to determine what you are about to write.
If you are the kind that loves to spend time online, the Z30 can be a very good gadget to browse with. It also has a premium feel and its ideal for a large display. With a 5 inch Super AMOLED display screen, it’s the best that BlackBerry has created so far. The screen has a pixel density of 295 ppi and though it’s not one of the best, it’s still a good display for a consumer Smartphone. It uses Blackberry 10.2 which is the best OS for blackberry so far. It’s also good to mention that with ideal conditions, the inbuilt 8.0 megapixel camera captures photos with great detail.
The Blackberry Z30 has a couple of shortcomings that need to be mentioned. First of all, the Z30 lacks important apps. Well, any Smartphone user needs apps such as Netflix without having to use third parties. It’s possible to find android apps and download them in Amazon and other places but it feels like going back so many steps especially if you have been absorbed into the iOS ecosystem where everything is available at a single click. You can ‘t synchronize your data with other devices unless you go to that extra mile of downloading an app to do it for you. Again, this one would be a pain for users who have already gotten used to iOS devices.
Blackberry Z30 is a business phone and therefore it lacks that ‘cool’ factor so you may need an extra Smartphone to play around with when you aren’t doing business. All in all, the Z30 is a good Smartphone for CrackBerry and BBM users which is a very popular messaging application. However, the Smartphone doesn’t have any other special features that would convince you to pick it in place of the other high end Smartphones. Maybe the next flagship, the Q10, will have some additional features in order to get into real competition with the big stars (Xperia Z1, One M8, iPhone 6…).
