I'm not sure why there are complaints about the passport rebooting. I don't think I can recall the phone ever rebooting. Maybe once, perhaps. I've had the silver edition since Jan/Feb of this year(2016). Brilliant phone, especially when you consider how easy it is to sideload the google play store on your phone and have complete access to all apps.
It's unfortunate that Whatsapp will no longer support blackberry OS as of Dec 31st of this year. I'm a little ticked off about that because I spent so much money to buy this phone. Hopefully there will be a resolution. I know there's an online petition to keep whatsapp services on BB OS.
Anyway, apart from the size(it's a big, wide, heavy phone), I really don't have many complaints. It's lightning fast, downloads everything quickly, loads everything quickly, browser is great, watching videos or movies are a breeze. The netflix app from the google play store works seamlessly. Audio is phenomenal, these speakers boom. Of course call quality/reception is excellent.
Physical keyboard does take some time to get used to, even if you've used one before. It's wider, and only three rows. I loved the touch keyboard on my Z10. I'd say that I actually type considerably faster on my Z10 touch keyboard than my passport. The physical keyboard is very intuitive though, and there are many nifty tricks you can learn to expedite your typing process. The fact that the physical keyboard has the ability to scroll up and down is a great feature as well.
Super phone, extremely fast and powerful. Good cameras as well, rear and front. It's just a little too wide and heavy, but I'm somewhat accustomed to it now.
Lilly, 01 Sep 2016Please confirm that the Blacberry Passport has FM radio (or not). I've read contradictory info... moreYes, the Passport does have FM radio support with RDS. I think some sites didn't list it because it's not trivial to get the FM radio working (you need to go into the Music app, tap on the top-left corner to bring up the side bar, and then select Radio. On other phones FM radio is invoked from a separate app). But it's there.
