You want opinions from users here or an actual answer from the design engineers of the device?

Re: blackberry z30 design

As you know, since this is a user-to-user community support forum, you won't get the design engineers commenting here. You can contact BlackBerry directly for that.

 

My opinion is that since this Z30 battery is 2800 mAh, greater than any other BlackBerry and more than most smartphones on the market today, there will be little need to change the battery. Current users are reporting 36-48 hours of average use without a charge.

 

Secondly, I read that since the battery is SO large, it was required to basically fill the entire backside of the device with the battery, causing it to be of such that it is not easily removable by a user/consumer.

 

And thirdly, like the more recent Q5 having a non-removable battery.

 

Finally, fourthly, since the Q10 and Z10 were originally designed with non-removable batteries, I just suspect that BlackBerry reverted back to their original design.

[ Edited ]

Another opinion, for what it's worth...

I agree with JSanders about the battery.  Built in gives a marginal size (therefore capacity) increase over a removeable one.

 

I believe the removeable back is to

a) avoid having those annoying ports in the side of the device for the sim and mSD cards

b) avoid having all the legal labelling requirements on the back cover, and

c) allow the removal of the back cover to replace it with one of the flip-cover style cases.

 

So, it makes sense to me.

 

Edit:  I'll be getting one (if I can squeeze another off-contract purchase past the wife...)

Re: blackberry z30 design

Thanks for all , but i think (elessar) has a good opinion about the back , but my opinion is that blackberry did it wrong,  first if there wasn't a removable back the device will be thiner and that is better and second if there wasn't removable back the device will be more solid

a non-removable back hasn't kept iPhones from selling well.
