Reviews Word on the street

BlackBerry Z30  vs iPhone 6 

First and foremost, it’s super easy to view outdoors with the sun presents, thanks in part to its potent brightness output of 606 nits – a modest step up over its predecessor’s 587 nits mark, but an excellent result nonetheless.

Also the Blackberry has the ability to install and run Android apps straight from the app store. With a iphone you are locked in a NetBSD loop that doesn't go anywhere. But with a Blackberry Z30 the possibilities are endless. It's a great business phone as well as a fun phone that a iphone can't touch... Nice try apple, why don't you try making a good phone like a blackberry instead of ripping people off with Manipulation and propaganda techniques...
Lets see... No mention of z30 expandable storage, I'm a fan of sd cards, plus you can stick any storage type into the usb port, lets see that iphone connect to a flash or even a hard drive. No mention that Z30 has HDMI built in. No mention that Z30 supports miracast, and does it well. A somewhat incomplete review/comparison.
