The BlackBerry® Passport™ smartphone is designed to be different from other smartphones, with a large, wide touch screen and a touch-sensitive keyboard. The BlackBerry Passport design was based on the form of an actual passport, providing a sense of familiarity even in something so new. Its frame was inspired by the steel I-beams used in modernist architecture, and the gentle shape of the back cover feels great in your hand, while accommodating a large battery. The BlackBerry Passport takes our iconic keyboard to the next level. The physical keyboard gives you more typing accuracy1 and leaves you more screen space for viewing. It responds to touch gestures, so you can scroll web pages, flick to type or slide along the keys to move the cursor. The BlackBerry Passport is built for busy people like you, with optimization of power consumption in BlackBerry® 10 and an impressive 3450 mAh battery. That’s almost 2 times bigger than the battery in the iPhone® 6.

    If Apple released a phone like this, people would be drooling over it., April 2, 2016

    “The Blackberry Passport is the worst thing to have happened to our relationship” – My wife

    Apparently I can’t put this phone down. So here’s the scoop:

    I’ve never really cared for phones. I only ever got my late iPhone 4S because I had started a job at an app development company and was told showing up with my Palm Trio would be embarrassing. Four years later: My wife upgraded to an iPhone 6S and the new-phone envy started to get to me.

    I decided to purchase the one phone that struck a cord with me: the Blackberry Passport.

    At nearly half the cost of an iphone (we buy our phones outright, and use Ting service to save money in the long run) i decided it was worth a shot.

    I love this phone, but here are some of the things I didn’t anticipate:

    1. It took me about a week to get used to typing on a physical keyword, and after nearly a month with it, I’m not convinced yet that I’m any faster than the digital keyboard I was so familiar with. So for me, I’d say the physical keyboard is a bit of a wash.

    2. There is a sound associated with typing on a physical keyboard. So if you are like me, writing this review on your phone while your wife sleeps next to you… it can be pretty annoying to hear constant clicks. A downside to a nice tactile and audible feedback.

    3. No more consistent one handed operation. I’ve got large hands, and for the most part I’m using two hands on this thing.

    4. How much people love to hate on Blackberry. “I thought they were dead” is my most common response to showing off the phone. Because there seems to be so much hate I enjoy leaving the “sent from my Blackberry” stock email signature. Keener neener.

    Here are some of the things that pleasantly surprised me:
    1. How awesome the Blackberry operating system is.
    2. How quickly I could find answers to any blackberry related questions I had with a simple google search.
    3. How much I love having the ability to scoll through Web pages and online articles with the keyboard.
    4. How crystal clear the screen is.
    5. How well it fit in my pocket.

    Hope that helps.

    I’m moving away from Android to Blackberry.
    I love this device. Mostly, I like how it is a communications device first and entertainment device second. It is feature rich in terms of methods to communicate. The software for messaging and comms is well organized, easy to use and intuitive.

    Aside from the accolades, I’ll break things into likes and dislikes

    Likes
    - Physical Keyboard – This phone’s keyboard is great. A bit small but it is responsive and BB included useful touch features into the keyboard. They’re a little finnicky to use at first but they’re more than a welcome addition. Something about the ‘click’ is satisfying, you know?
    - Interface – It’s simple and functional. I can’t think of any navigation drawbacks so far. The team coordinates the home screen, apps and messaging into a easy-to-navigate system.
    - Speaker – This thing is LOUD for a phone.
    - Speed – Solid utilities. It may be a 3 year old phone but it can handle a lot of tasks
    -
    Dislikes
    - Keyboard swipe features – I may try to hack into the device to make a change for the keyboard swipe direction because I frequently tap buttons on the mini screen keyboard. It’s a drawback but not a killer.
    - Lack of native Google Play support. – It’s not a dealbreaker for me as there’s a work around for installing Google Play. Some apps DO NOT function but the browser on the phone is a Safari browser and handles most websites with ease.

    Neutral
    - Shape – Some like it, some hate it. I’m on the fence about it. It forces me to use the keyboard, resulting is less typos. I like it. It does limit the ability to view videos in widescreen but it’s almost wide enough to not care.

    I wish I could but I can’t speak for developing for the Blackberry but I do hope it’s own store bolsters useful apps here and there.

    Overall, I love the keyboard, the volume of the speaker and the easy-to-use OS. Couple that with useful security features and the international capability of the phone and you have a solid device.

    I love this thing.
    It makes me appreciate what phones

    This little phone is pretty cool. I just got it this morning. I researched it for two weeks before I decided to buy it. I have owned over two dozen Android phones and rooted half of them, a couple of windows mobile phones, a half dozen Blackberries and now this one. It charges relatively fast and is quite responsive. The user interface, BB 10, is pretty slick and easy to use. There is a learning curve, but it is not too steep. The only real con is getting used to doing the same thing that Android does, but in a different way. It is still pretty easy to use. It makes me wax nostalgic for my old blackberry pearls. It has great picture quality as well. I will update this review in a few weeks.
