BlackBerry might not be attracting new customers but there are still loyal BlackBerry fans who are waiting for a good upgrade. The Black-Berry Z3 is that perfect device priced at Rs 15,999.
The Z3 seems to be inspired by the design language of the Z10. It has got a rectangular design and a textured back. The 5-inch display sits on the front with the BlackBerry branding at the bottom. Power key along with volume controls are placed on the left panel.
The back seems to be non-removable as the memory card slot and the SIM slot are placed on the right. Running on BlackBerry OS 10.2.1, it features Priority Hub, one of the best features of this OS. Under the Priority Hub, all important notifications, be it messages, emails, calls, BBM, etc., are stored under a single hood.
The user interface is easy once you get hooked to it. The real time multitasking works brilliantly. However, the only front where this phone lacks is the camera and sound. And the sound output is nowhere close to the existing BlackBerry offerings. The battery backup is impressive as it lasts over a day on a single charge.
Bag it or junk it: A good device for this price
