Typing on its PKB is such a breeze. It's tactile and the predicted words are just on top of the PKB, on the screen..if you're lazy to type the whole words. You can just flick it! Battery life is outstanding. Build quality is superb. The screen is one of a kind.. work wide indeed!!! The speaker is very good too and loud enough to start a small party in a decent size room. LOL!
I use my Passport as my personal phone because of its security features. For fun stuff with not so much personal details involve, I use a BlackBerry Android, a DTEK50.
Finally, today my BB passport get official OTA update to software release 10.3.3.1435.
For those who use BB passport in Indonesia, go check software update on your device.
Download size is quite big, 1.5 GB.
Is it worth or not to buy this phone? I really like the design tho, and did android instagram work on this phone?
Great phone. Fast, build very well, long battery life, great looks, BB apps are reliable, run also Google Play and Snap. The android apps work very well. I have run android WhatsApp and now I'm back on BB WhatsApp. Hope they will keep updating WhatsApp for BB10 after june 2017. The only thing that doesny works is SnapChat but I dont use it, I just try it to find it out of it works. Love the hub, see all my notifications. I own this Passport for 2 years now, I also have the BB Classic, Z10 and Z30.
BB 10 will have native Whatsapp support till june 30th, 2017 and after that you can try installing android version of the whatsapp

3kgeoff, 08 Jan 2017 I have also noticed that specifications don't mean everything with electronics. Sometimes ph... moreHi, I'll be getting my BB passport tomorrow, a couple of things I can share about my experience in brief points are:
1- Compatibility for me worked best in windows mobile 10, IOS and android. I tried BB10 when it was released on the playbook which although is old now was really smooth and faster than most tablets for its time.
2- I'm purchasing the BB10 passport because I wanted a business oriented phone which would be all about productivity, another reason is that I'm from the millennial generation who was around when phones with keyboards was the sh*t and slowly witnessed the transition of keyboard to touchscreens and the rise of the android as well as the fall of the BB10 so being naturally a tech nerd I wanna get another chance to experience the best keyboard on a smartphone.
3- Finally this device is currently for niche, people who can go about without WhatsApp & FB as well as games and popular social media apps, also note due to the dwindling popularity of BB in general, servicing if it gets damaged or has defective parts will be difficult and do not expect to have any value when wanting to sell the device so this will be one of those devices that you keep with you forever.
I hope my comments helped a little
