  • Reception and call quality Very natural and clear sound. great!
  • Display Large, very clear display without sacificing battery life. great!
  • Battery life Without managing my services (turning off blue tooth and wifi when they are not needed) I get over a day n a full charge. great!

  • Design and form factor The Z30 is easy to hold, construction if great. good
  • Portability (size / weight) It's just the right size for me, fits in my jean's pocket - but large enough to be useful for the work with the browser and apps. great!
  • Media support Works great with all my accounts and local media. great!
  • Durability ah, yea - I tent to drop my phones ... a lot ... this one too. No issues, even without a case. great!
  • Ecosystem (apps, accessories, etc.) All the apps I need from the BB store and my Android apps that I ha on my S4. poor
Detailed review
I primarily use my phone for communications, web browsing, playing music and movies and as a GPS.

The currently limited apps available in the app store are not an issue for me.

The stand-out here is the sound and the touch keyboard.

The touch keyboard is the best I've ever used.
