Engadget Review

BlackBerry Z30 review

BlackBerry’s first entry into the small tablet / big phone market gets about half of the key decisions right, but a high price, poor call quality and crash-prone software ultimately make it an also-ran.

Pros
  • Long battery life
  • Comfortable to hold
  • BB10 well-suited to a big screen
Cons
  • Buggy, crash-prone software
  • Middling camera
  • Expensive
