The Blackberry Z30 was released in 2013 and comes and black and white colors. It weighs 170 grams and measures 140.7 x 72 x 9.4 mm. The phone is too heavy for my liking.
However, at the price, this is a very good deal. The Blackberry Z30 price in Kenya starts at Kshs 18,000.
Speaking of the display, it comes with a 5.0 inch Super AMOLED screen with a pixel density of 294ppi. You also get a display resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. This is just enough for this day and age.
In the camera, you’ve got an 8MP lens for the rear shooter and the selfies camera is only 2MP. Features the Blackberry Z30 comes with include face detection, autofocus, HDR and geo tagging.
When it comes to the operating system, it runs Blackberry OS version 10.2. With a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.7 GHz dual core processor, your apps will run easily on this. Also, the device has 2GB of RAM and also comes with Adreno 320 GPU for running graphic intensive games.
With an internal memory of 16GB, you’re pretty much sorted out storage wise. However, if need arises, you can expand it to 64GB using a microSD card.
The connectivity options in the device are numerous, including but not limited to 4G, 3G, GPRS, Bluetooth version 4.
The Blackberry Z30 comes with a 2880mAh battery which has a talk time of 25 hours on if you are using 2G and 18 hours if using 3G.
