Difference between BlackBerry Z30 and BlackBerry Z10(Updated). | Mobile phone latest news Google+ Follow Smartfonefreaks on Twitter

The latest BlackBerry so far is the Z30 and as we all know its similar to its predecessor Z10 so i've come to compare the difference between the two Sisters lol...

First of all i have to admit that after seeing the two devices i fell so in love with the Z30(maybe coz i like big Phones) and so the Z10 looks like a small phone but after checking the difference between the two smartphones i found out nothing really new. As a matter of fact the Older sister which is Z10 has some features Z30 should have but Hell No! 

 Here are the differences i found out...Although i will update this once the Z30 hits the market and its been test run.

Now lets consider the changes,

The Z10 is still on OS 10, while the Z30 is coming with OS 10.2 but lets not forget Z10/Q10/Q5 will also get an Update to 10.2 by Mid October.

They both weigh the same KG i.e 128kg respectively(Which bothers me coz the Z30 is bigger, How come?)

The display feature is funny, coz the Z10 carries more Pixel than the Z30.

The worst part, Same camera Pixel 8MP(Back)! 2MP(Front)!....Anyways thats all for now you can fish out the rest, but one thing that will make you go eager for Z30 is the new Paratek technology which in summary is a new generation technology for network stability when there's no strong Network coverage click here to read more about the tech in their press release.... in my own opinion Z30 rocks!!!
