my thoughts exactly. I'm using a z10 at the moment, changing to z30 is gonna seem like I'm holding a bigger version with better battery life.

Give me a few tips on the cheap data you mentioned.

Op, just go for Z30. S4 is all glamour and fashion. The camera issue is crap, a BB 8MP camera phone is equal to a Samsung 16MP camera phone AND I'm sure you have applications you bought from AppWorld, would you rather let them waste?

In other similar news, I'm looking to buy a BB Z30. I checked OLX to see offers and the available sellers are all from the custom office at Apapa and the funny thing is that they are all custom officers. Is this a safe deal? Has anyone gotten a phone from a custom officer, ever?

Yo! OLX is the new robbers den ,you'll find Z30 as low as 25k, tons of gullible folks fall for it every day, Buy a new one, or buy from a friend who wants to upgrade.. Or better get a Z10/Z3 , no go dey findd Z30 and end up with Z0; my 2Kobo

You'll just end up lamenting and swearing.

Pls can someone recommend a good guy that can unluck my z10 bb,it's AT&T phone.i have taken it to computer village but could not get it done
Re: Z30 Or S4? by rapcy(m): 6:49pm On Nov 24, 2014
Bros, if you want my candid opinion ehn, I feel s4 is much better than any blackberry phone we have now... naturally android OS is much better than the Bb OS... There are lots of apps your BB OS can't run. That's because it uses a ported android OS, I sold off my bb os 10 phone and bought an s4, and I am enjoying it. I am not saying z30 is bad, but s4 is way better than it. Think of customizing your phone, playing games, better camera, good battery life, swag... to be truthful d z30 looks like a china phone, but it's still good sha. Left to me; go for S4 .

I have taken my phone there so I know what I'm talking about. You can take any blackberry phone bought from any accredited dealer there and you will be attended to for free if your warranty claims are genuine.
Re: Z30 Or S4? by J4parry(m): 7:00pm On Nov 24, 2014
The truth is BB10 and Android platforms are meant for different targets. If you want to avoid second-guessing I suggest that since you already have a BB10 phone, just go for S4 then use the hotspot from the BB10 to enjoy the best of both worlds. It's as simple as that. I own an S4 and Q10 I must confess am a happy man when it comes to smartphone usage.[color=#770077][/color]

I have been been facing this problem of indecision for a while.

The s4 beats the z30 in all ramifications, and due to the drastic fall in price of the s4, they are now around the same price.

Also the z30 has a cheaper data sub( glo 3 gig for 1k), I need advice on which to pick.

Please share your views, thank you.
A no-brainer this one. S4 all d way!

My bro. Mk u shun sentiments and go for the samsung. As for data, hope you know that the bb10 series has a far lesser data bandwith than the regular bb sub u know. Tk note, 10series don't hv 3gb bandwith but about 550mb.

Data is no longer a problem for Android users. it has long been solved.
Good p.m. Can you kindly put me through how to change Android imei, and use BIS on a droid?

yes, seriously you have to forgive some folks with what they drop here, i mean it is nauseating reading some comment,imagine a dude comparing an s4 hotspot to z30...so ridiculous.

Samsung has got the best liquid crystal display...the active matrix organic light emitting diode(AMOLED) is an innovation from samsung to beat.

Thanks. Even at N40000 I still won't be able to get it. I'm only with N30000 and I could just go for another of the Z series if I knew this earlier but I've already downloaded a leaked update 10.3.1 (specifically for the Z30). My plan was to update the OS immediately after purchase.

Re: Z30 Or S4? by Nobody: 7:45pm On Nov 24, 2014
On this thread there are 2 categories of people ,
The ones who are love security and the ones who care about good looking games and tweaking their mobiles ....
The hardware features of the Samsung galaxy and Note are topNotch only HTC is really giving it a run for its money...When you talk security ,you talk blackberry
BB10 lacks apps, yes we all know thank God for the ability of BB10 to run most droid apps....
For me apps mean Linkedin,Skype, Twitter,Docs to go and IG..
Do you know that most scammers sends you mails with a malware attached ?the malware gets installed on your PC/smartphone and spys on you?
If you run sensitive stuff Go blackberry ,if you play HDGames go android
