BlackBerry Z30 specs and review

Reviewing BlackBerry’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 BlackBerry’s future as software and services and this sort of thing might make you think twice about buying the BlackBerry Z30.

Moreover, with the BlackBerry’s Z30, BlackBerry hasn’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 it’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.
