Overview
The Z10 is BlackBerry's first model to come out after a lull from the popular smartphone maker, owing to major restructuring in the company. The Z10 is a touchscreen phone running BlackBerry 10, their newest operating system at the moment. The phone has a 4.2 inch display with a high 1280 x 768 pixel resolution, resulting in a crisp 355 PPI pixel density. On the specs-front, BlackBerry has also stepped up their game. There's a dual-core Qualcomm 1.5 GHz processor and 2GB RAM packed into the Z10. This handset also supports the high-speed LTE (4G) connectivity, along with the usual WiFi 802.11n support. It has 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded with the use of a microSD card slot. An 8 megapixel camera at the back shoots 1080p HD videos while the 2MP front-facing camera can do 720p HD video. The BlackBerry 10 UI all gesture based; there are no home, back or menu keys on the phone. Also, one big change since BB10 is that there's no compulsion to subscribe to a BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) anymore, a regular 3G plan will do. This change opens wide doors to an audience that previously would have shied away due to the high recurring costs. There's an 1800 mAh battery powering the Z10.
Canadian smartphone maker BlackBerry has been in troubled waters in 2013. Trying to break the near-impenetrable stronghold created by iOS and Android smartphones, the phone maker is listening to what the market is demanding. And the most trending thing in recent times has been big-screened phones. While the BlackBerry Z10 had a smaller 4.2-inches screen size, the Z30 takes it all the way to 5-inches. Instead of using an LCD panel, the Z30 uses a Super AMOLED type, just like the BlackBerry Q10. But the resolution is in fact a little lower than the Z10 at 1280 x 720 pixels; which misses the 300 PPI park by a notch. The processor and graphics chip have been bumped up — the Z30 is powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chip with better Adreno 320 graphics as compared to the Z10. It maintains the same sufficiently large 2GB of RAM and has the same 16GB of internal storage, other than the microSD card slot.

Connectivity-wise, you've got LTE along with WiFi, Bluetooth and NFC. The BlackBerry Z30 retains the same 8 megapixel rear and 2 megapixel front-facing camera sensors. The last big advancement in the spec-sheet is the big 2880 mAh battery; which BlackBerry claims will give the user up to 25 hours with typical usage. One feature not mentioned in the spec-sheet is the stereo speakers with BlackBerry Natural Sound technology. After having heard the clarity and loudness of the Q10, we are hopeful that the Z30's speakers will impress.
