The BlackBerry Z3 "Jakarta" is an entry-level device that was announced at Mobile World Congress is Barcelona. Rumors of the device first began when BlackBerry CEO John Chen gave word of the new Foxconn-built device during his first earnings call with the company.
When looking at the build quality of the Z3, it features a solid design that is both eye catching and attractive. One thing I can say is BlackBerry has always done a great job when it comes to the brightness settings of its mobile devices.

The Z3 features a 2500mAh battery, which essentially does a great job at keeping the device up and running for up to two days – depending on the amount of time spent using the device. While my overall impressions of the BlackBerry Z3 are extremely positive, I do however feel, while it has a solid design, that it is a bit clunky in its design.
The BlackBerry Z3 smartphone will be available to Vodacom customers in stores and online from mid-July 2014. BlackBerry fans looking for an upgrade would do well to consider the Leap, BlackBerry's latest offering, says NAFISA AKABOR. Tech journalist NAFISA AKABOR reviews the BlackBerry Classic, a device aimed squarely at old-school BlackBerry fans.
Blackberrya€™s Z3 has been specifically designed with BB fans in mind and is only being released in the countries where BlackBerry is most popular. BlackBerry's latest smartphone, the Z30, is its biggest yet, with a 5-inch screen and a long-lasting battery. The device is also Android app compatible; however, only a few apps are available at present.
The Hub can be customised to identify priority messages and to filter the message list by various criteria that you can then activate with a simple pinch gesture.
You get BBM voice and video chatting with Screen Share and support for BlackBerry Natural Sound, letting you hear nuances and variations in tone in a BBM Voice chat, and making the conversation sound like you’re in the same room. It gives you the best typing experience on a touchscreen, complete with multi-language support that lets you type in up to 3 different languages at the same time. You can also use Story Maker to bring a collection of photos and videos together, along with music and effects, to produce an HD movie that you can instantly share on YouTube. The browser includes many advanced features, supports multiple tabs, lets you browse sites privately, includes a reader mode, and integrates with the platform for easily sharing content.
You can even reply to your BBM or SMS messages in any app, or swipe to the BlackBerry Hub to respond. Touching “share” in any app provides suggestions on who and how to share your files based on who you’ve shared with in the past, and the feature only gets smarter the more you use it.
The BlackBerry Z3 is also Android App Compatible, which means that customers can enjoy some of their favourite Android apps on the BlackBerry Z3. The touchscreen BlackBerry 10 device has lower specs than that of the BlackBerry Z10 and Z30 and is be geared toward those in emerging markets. While most smartphones come with a RRP (Recommended Retail Price) of around R6000 to R12000, the BlackBerry Z3 is priced at a cool R3000. The device features a 5-inch QHD touchscreen display, which performs rather well when watching a variety of clips as well as during general device usage. A lot of smartphones these days tend to be too bright; however, BlackBerry has always maintained a level of brightness that is comfortable while viewing even at its highest or lowest settings. As an added bonus, the device is Android app compatible; however, only a certain range are apps are available at the moment for the device. This is especially great for the younger generation who use their device for not only social networking and a bit of gaming, but also for research as well as their studies.

While making multiple calls, throughout the review period, I noticed no drop in quality from either making a call from the device or receiving one on another device. Granted the phone looks good, but it feels too big at times… especially when trying to fit it into a pair of jeans.
It is a device that is aimed at a younger demographic; however, it also opens up the world of smartphones to individuals who are looking for a great device at an extremely reasonable price. It has a recommended selling price of R2 999 and will also be available on the Vodacom Smart S plan at R249 per month. The device has the recommended selling price of R2 999 and will also be available on the Vodacom Smart S plan at R249 per month. If you get a phone call that you can’t answer right way, you can instantly silence the call and send a Reply Now response through BBM, SMS or email to let the caller know you’re busy. While the display quality is not entirely the best seen on the market, it is however impressive for a device that is essentially aimed at a younger demographic of users.
These include the likes of Instagram and the rather controversial, yet highly addictive, Candy Crush Saga. Furthermore, the speaker located at the back of the device sounds natural… especially if you decide to use your device to watch YouTube videos and play music at moderately high volume. Ita€™s a reasonably priced, good-looking phone and benefits from many improvements on previous models. Furthermore, the Z3 packs in a 5 megapixel rear facing camera as well as a 1.1 megapixel front facing camera. Go to Amazona€™s mobi site, download the Amazon app store and install to your hearta€™s content.
