BlackBerry Z3 review: an affordable and solid workhorse

A comprehensive review of BlackBerry s latest, the Z3

Jul 25 2014 By Deepak Dhingra
  • Solid build quality
  • Smooth performance
  • Intuitive UI with useful features
  • BlackBerry Hub provides at-a-glance info on all connected accounts
  • Superb battery life
  • Average camera
  • Doesn't match up in terms of specs
  • No native Google apps

This is where things get tough. Priced at Rs 15,990, we think it’d have been much simpler to recommend the Z3 wholeheartedly if it had been priced slightly lower, but then, we’d like all phones out there to be lighter on the pocket. Compared head on with other smartphones in the same price bracket, the BlackBerry Z3 looks like it’s fighting a losing battle, especially when you take pure specs into account. Android has always been BlackBerry’s nemesis, and compelling options like the Moto G (review), and the ASUS Zenfone 5 (review) don’t make things easy. Thanks to the crowded landscape, there are tons of other alternatives too, including Micromax Canvas Turbo, Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus and Alcatel One Touch Idol X+ (first impressions). Then there’s the Xiaomi Mi 3 (review in pictures), a smartphone that looks like it can blow everything else out of the water. It’s not easy to compete with that. Then there’s BlackBerry’s own Z10, which is selling for as low as ~Rs 17,000. The price difference between the two siblings is negligible, and admittedly, the Z10 does offer better specs, though its screen size is smaller at 4.2-inches. However, the Z10’s battery life isn’t as good, and for most, that could be the deciding factor.  The BlackBerry Z3’s key strengths lie in its sturdy build, smooth performance, and above all, superb battery life. The platform may not offer as much customisability or app variety as Android, but it does have a few areas where it excels. The email experience, which was one of the pillars of BlackBerry’s success in the past, is still great on BB OS 10, and by extension, on the Z3. The interface is quite intuitive, and many of its features such as the keyboard’s text prediction, pop-up notifications, etc are extremely useful. The one thing that takes it to a different level is BlackBerry Hub though, which just makes things extremely convenient for anyone who leads an active digital lifestyle. Not only does it provide a bird’s eye view of all your email and social accounts at a single location, it’s also very feature-rich and flexible. For anyone with multiple email and social networking accounts, this feature would be very useful to have. We hate to admit it, but this aspect points more towards executives, though it’d be useful to other types of users too. Having said that, the Z3 does offer FM radio and media players supporting a variety of audio and video formats too, so it isn’t as if you’ll be left wanting as far as entertainment on the go is concerned. The Z3 then, is an option that you should definitely consider when looking out for an affordable workhorse.

what is wrong with you people.
03 Jul 2014 By Rron On

I just wanted to ask how many of you have ever used BlackBerry OS 10. And yet you rate not only BlackBerry 10 as well as Z3. Which was not even available in market when you rates this product.nnThis is BlackBerry 10. Not an android. I had used android and the experience for BlackBerry 10 is far2 ahead of the so called android. nnMultitasking on android is a pain even with the flagship phone. I am currently using Z10 and I never had complained or had issues related with hardware or lagging.nnBut when I was using Android I had issues from the very same day the phone shipped.nnAnyway, my point is I am buying this phone. If you haven't used BlackBerry 10 before. Don't/never review this product again. nnAnd flipkart is not the place where you complain about the pricing.nnI even had moto g. But promise myself never to use android device ever again. I believe you all have used android. You will see the difference. See the difference yourself.nnFrom BlackBerry Z10.nnEdited. Some tips for new BlackBerry 10 user.nnYou can download android apps from or download amazon apps store(soon this apps store will be available pre install on the next update) you can also sideload(process of installing BlackBerry native apps). Side loading steps are available on conserve battery you may close apps on the active frame. nnYou may also learn BlackBerry keypad tips and techniques(google it) :)nnOnce again posted from BlackBerry OS 10

Blackberry 10 OS
03 Jul 2014 By Bhargav Gudladona On

I really don't understand why people are yelling at the pricing?!! for the quality of the blackberry product its pretty decent pricing as many said blackberry OS 10 is top notch compared to android, BB OS 10 has no lags no hanging issues.. and people comparing Specs and all with motoG!!!!! guys android is opensource and it needs compatibility with the hardware to perform well on each device so android needs specs...Where as BB 10 is from the same manufacturer who developed and designed the hardware so i think they know it better on what the OS works fine.. nnStop cribbing and comparing android and BB10, BB10 is way too ahead of Android in terms of performance its a best bet for the pricing.nn(Review after using Galaxy S3,S4,and BB Z10)
