I love this phone except for one thing I find annoying... the non-removable battery! I hate that BlackBerry went this route. I am still happy with my Q10 and will wait for the successor to the Passport, hopefully, it will have a removable battery.

I am well aware that this crazy idea of non-removable batteries (no thanks Apple) is the future. i just hope that BlackBerry retains it for their full-touch phones and leave us QWERTY-loving business people with the removable battery option.

As a professional, I can say that the BlackBerry Passport was a very intriguing concept that has become an indispensable tool in my daily routine. The Passport is a purpose built device and after only a little use, I have become quite comfortable with it. It's large size may be a little disconcerting at first, but I have come to appreciate the design genius behind it in the very short time I have had the pleasure of using it.

I feel that BlackBerry - with the Passport & Z30 before it (which I own as daily) - should've been designed and qualified for IP58 ratings!

Non-Removable batteries has been around I believe before Apple; Android Verizon RAZR (Motorola), and a few others:
SE W900 and it's successor.

Larger batteries can be obtained and with small and large capacity portable charger packs ... no more need for removable battery. Don't tell me you believe in carrying a spare buried in your bag ... cause anywhere else will easily get exposed to moisture or dropping. Portable batteries a little more robost. Trust me get with the new world and get this Passport .. I'm upgrading ... VERY solid in the hands I've felt at the demo unit in Rogers store. I'm with Bell.

The Passport is surely not the first device to sport a square screen (let alone the first BlackBerry), but it's the first one that has a pixel density as high as 453ppi. Coincidentally, the 1440 x 1440px resolution results in an identical number of pixels as a standard 1080 x 1920px display


From our time with it, we can safely conclude that the Passport will have an easy one drawing the attention of business users back to BlackBerry's camp thanks to all its novelty, high-grade execution and of course, helped by the BlackBerry Internet Services. It's certainly been a while since we've been able to say that about a BlackBerry device. It's good to have you back, BB


The overall of the review seems very accurate of the hardware quality and performance. Unfortunately it STILL looks at the device and the OS as a whole as a consumer device ... that is NO LONGER the intention of BlackBerry. The seemingly 'capable' other devices begin to pale in comparison on a corporate use infrastructure.

I really REALLY should make a post to this sometime soon, however I feel that 90% of users/members on this board such information would be lost on; not out of spite or anything else, yet maybe they do not work for a corporate business as large as some whom would gravitate to such a device.

Judging by all the reviews, renewed confident with the highly successful investment firm The Ontario's Teachers Pending Plan Fund purchasing 4+million shares during this current quarter ... I'd say BlackBerry is doing VERY well with the Passport sales.


BTW, although the youtube video comparison of Passport vs Z30 is in another language I don't understand ... judging by how the review is ... consumer focused and so basic it clearly shows the reviewer has no clue how to use either device effectively. Gone are the days where forums members purchased their devices and gave FULL review through and through after a month of using it thoroughly providing sound advice.

Oh yeah one more thing ... without being specifically designed or manufacturered with structural integrity against damage in mind ... the Passport, arguably is THE MOST RUGGED smartphone in existance ... taking drops over 30ft and working FULLY for calls, data, navigation and selection on the screen and keyboard! No case involved. Search the youtube videos of drop tests. I promise you'll be amazed! You're getting your moneys worth.

Quad Core, 128GB Class 10 MicroSD support, internal 32GB storage, 3GB RAM on a mobile OS that works just a fast and fluidly with 1.5GB RAM (Q5) or 2GB RAM (Q10/Z10/Z3/Z30).
