Blackberry Z3 Specs and Features in the Philippines

The BlackBerry Z3 - Communicates Best

All BlackBerry phones have exclusivity to the BlackBerry Messenger app, or more commonly known as BBM. The BBM app allows the users to chat with their fellow BlackBerry-using friends in a feature-packed application. The Blackberry Z3 also gives the users a way to connect with communities, personalities, and brands through certain BBM channels. No other phone out there has BBM, and many users have stuck with BlackBerry, resulting in an incredibly rich growth in the application as well as the user base. It is also very secured, so you can text away in peace knowing that no one else can read what you are reading.

Being the Best at the Basics

The BlackBerry Z3 comes at an affordable price, between RM400-RM700, but does not shy away from giving you the best foundation in terms of specifications. It also helps that the BlackBerry 10 operating systems run flawlessly on the hardware. On the front of the Blackberry Z3, you will find a clear and bright 5-inch LCD glass panel.

Under the hood of the phone, you will find a humble yet efficient Qualcomm processor that is clocked at 1.2Ghz and paired with 1.5GB of RAM to help you navigate through applications much more efficiently. The 8GB internal storage is a bit lacking, but may be sufficient for very light use; it is expandable via a microSD card of up to an additional 32GB. Because of its low power processor, the 2500 mAh battery can easily get most users through the day with little to no problems.

Looks Good, Feels Good

Like many other BlackBerry phones, the BlackBerry Z3 is a smartphone that does not shy away with its classy and minimalistic looks. At the front, the Blackberry Z3 is clean and simple, with only the compulsory BlackBerry branding on the bottom chin. On the sides, you will find the power and volume buttons in easy-to-find sizes, as well as a little flap that covers the SIM and SD card slots. The top and bottom of the phone also has a 3.5mm headphone jack and micro USB port respectively.

On the rear, however, is the incredibly good looking textured back with nothing but the camera on the top left and the BlackBerry logo in the center. The textured back gives the smartphone a great grip as well as making it more durable and protect more from scratches and scuffs. It is a great amalgamation of form and function.
