Blackberry Z30 Review

The BlackBerry Z30 has just been released and this smartphone sees BlackBerry continue to deliver handsets that are full touch screen as opposed to with a physical QWERTY keyword.

This mobile phone also takes a step forward in technology and specification compared to previous models so it is more likely to appeal to those outside of the group of hardened BlackBerry fans.

BlackBerry Z30 Features

The BlackBerry Z30 is loaded with features that compete with the latest new technology releases from other mobile phone manufacturers. This includes the BlackBerry Natural Sound technology which aims to challenge the HTC Boom Sound featured on the HTC One. Two stereo speakers produce high quality audio output and calls are enhanced with four microphones.

The 5 inch (diagonal) full touch screen promotes images, videos, games and web browsing (via BlackBerry Browser) well and there is a handy new feature called the BlackBerry Reader that at a simple touch of a button removes all of the page clutter to produce an easy reading experience.

The keyboard is responsive and intuitive learning the words you type and making next word predictions that can be entered into a message with the simple flick of a button.

Documents To Go is also pre-loaded and this app will allow users to open, view and edit Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents, essential for business users of the phone. Documents To Go also keeps all of the formatting in place so that documents look the same across all devices.

Business users can make use of the BlackBerry Balance feature that separates your information into two secure profiles whilst the Priority Hub generates a view of you most important messages that can be viewed via a single swipe of a finger.
