Reviewing BlackBerryâ€™s new smartphone Z30 seems a little strange at this point of time when the Canadian phone maker is already going through a very bad phase.
Analysts are predicting BlackBerryâ€™s future as software and services and this sort of thing might make you think twice about buying the BlackBerry Z30.
Moreover, with the BlackBerryâ€™s Z30, BlackBerry hasnâ€™t gone for anything bold or audacious. The Handset has round corners similar to the most recent models in the Samsung Galaxy S family.
The phone is quite thick and chunky and there are a few design features which will make you think that whose decision was this. The silver chin at the front is shrilly out of place, though it is a part of the metallic surround that separates the front and back panel.
The soft-touch rubberized back panel gives it a fine look and the fit and finish throughout is superb with no bend and creaking.
Button placement is odd, the volume buttons are on either side of a central button and the logic would say this is the power button, but actually itâ€™s a button for activating the voice control features.
The 5-inch AMOLED Display with a resolution of 1280×720 pixels with a pixel density of 294 ppi is something good about the handset.
The phone is powered with a 1.7GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and quad-core Adreno graphics. With the Z30, the company has also pushed the noise cancellation abilities. It also has a Priority Hub feature that can detect what contacts are important to you and displays messages on priority basis.
