gadgetgem1, 05 Oct 2014would anyone recomend this phone for mainly personal use ?I purchased one in London last week! First impression thought was a large device and got worried if I will be able to use it. One week on and I really really love the device, I use it for work and personal and easy will say this is much better than my note 3. Specially when writing something. Will I recommend this phone? Yes if you need one device that does everything this is the one. I love mine and trust me you will come here and thank me.
Torchbearer, 04 Oct 2014Stop complaining about the price! Passport is reasonably priced, for the value you get! Is iPh... moreIt's only a professional tool for me if it can record phonecalls. If it can't then it's a toy just all the other toys around.
yes I would recommend the passport for personal use. I use it to write my school papers and lots of music via program Neutron. and surf the internet like a mad man. very nice phone Good Job blackberry!!!!
gadgetgem1, 05 Oct 2014would anyone recomend this phone for mainly personal use ?yes. i prefer it. its a nice phone. plus i love BB10 a lot.
gadgetgem1, 05 Oct 2014would anyone recomend this phone for mainly personal use ?What kind of personal use?
Danny, 02 Oct 2014In Spain for the price Blackberry passaporte(€700) we can buy -blackberry Q10+Z10+9720+9229... moreEarning money is not a crime, if it is in a good way and pay taxes. This phone is for people who know how to make money and keep it.
Samsung actually one time mobile or nothing.not compare with apple,BlackBerry or nokia.samsung oxygen is android os.
gadgetgem1, 05 Oct 2014would anyone recomend this phone for mainly personal use ?Yes. It's a great device,especially the possibility to run Android-apps directly, installed via Amazon App-Stor, lets raise the productivity for private users. For me it's also the clever hardware-keyboard and the high solid state quality of the hardware, what I like! And what's only a nice gadget - but works in a never seen quality: a build in fm-radio with DLNA-server...
Why is this in the 9th price bracket and the S5 is in the 8th, but on average, the Passport is cheaper?
It is $599 direct from shopblackberry.com.
Also, when are we going to see a review (preferably unbiased, GSMArena) of this device? I really want to see the camera in use.
This might be a great device for the professionals who use to work on the go. It has high end specifications with amazing gestures. I gave up BB Z10 because of least apps, average batterylife and camparably small screen. In passport, it seems all these flaws are eliminated. It is strange that gsmarena has not presented review of this much awaited device even after 10 days of its launch. We are eager for review of gsmarena which always facilitate users to take decision. So gsmarena please put review of passport asap.
Trebor, 01 Oct 2014Blackberry Passport is only 20,000 = 458$ here in Ph :)Where did you buy your BB Passport here in the Philippines?
I luv bb passport.already though its not so different from the bbz10 in its specs
khmer bb fan, 29 Sep 2014Is there a call connected vibration on BB Passport? Anyone has tested, please tell me. Yup, it's called 'Vibrate on Call'. works perfectly.
I've used almost all OS devices. BB is difinitely different. It is most convenient,rich looking and time saving handset. I was switched over android just because of apps. But now, as BBpassport is preinstalled with Amazon apps store, I'm going to have it asap. It is full of battery power,great look, durable yet rich feeling material, great design and it is blackberry!! It is definitely a one for all who desires to have latest technology..
I am starting to fall in love with the Blackberry Passport! I was a loyal BB user before. The last time I used a BB was back in 2011 or 2012 with the 9780 then I switched to Android and WP but now that Android releases phones too often whether high end or not and that is a let down especially for those who own high end Android devices. With Blackberry, atleast I know how their trend works and I really miss it! I love the white Passport! I wanna get one this holiday season! :)
