Emmie, 10 Apr 2016Hiii bbpassport users
im going to buy this phone, i just want to know is this a good phone im... moreNo, it's not good for games because the screen is a square 1:1 ratio. Your games will look like it's being played on an iphone 5. It'll be really small.
This phone is good for reading stuff and social media. It's also a "geeks" phone or a "blackberry fan's" phone. It takes a bit of tinkering to get popular apps to work or you may even have to pay a few bucks for basic apps. ie: Face10 for Facebook and Insta10 for Instagram.
If you just need a phone to pick up and use easily, this is not for you. But the keyboard with built in touch pad, shortcut keys, and wide screen is fantastic if you can get it to do what you need it to do.
Annie, 11 Apr 2016Which one bbleap or bbpassportAnnie what's your usage scenario. Are you more of a web browsing/communicating person or someone who will have need for loads of apps.
If the former try and get a z10 on the second hand market. Buy a spare battery with money saved.

For someone who uses sms, office app or web browser mostly then it's a good phone.

dogdog, 05 Apr 2016Now Blackberry 10 can download a app call Face10 for facebook. lt is close to Facebook. WhatsA... moreMost probably after WhatsApp discontinues its service, the guy running Nemory Studios would release a client for WhatsApp too and would name it Whats10.
Seriously Blackberry should hire this guy and make all his apps free.
I just bought BB Passport Silver edition and coming here to find out that Whatsapp wouldn't be available again after 2016??? I am also disappointed that I can get my banking app (LLyods) on this phone (I thought it was a phone for business) I have definitely made the wrong choice???? Please help me
There has the other way to get Facebook. U can use Brower to add Facebook into passport. It is work fine for me now.
Now Blackberry 10 can download a app call Face10 for facebook. lt is close to Facebook. WhatsApp has not change. l think it will close end the year. Maybe that time has the other way to soft it. Passport is very good phone. But it is too big and cannot hold with one hand.
hello everyone. Should i get Blackberry Passport now? or should i wait for new updates of the phone? Despite all the issues like FB & Whatsapp dropping support to blackberry os.
burzo, 31 Mar 2016Hi! I want to buy a BB Passport silver edition second hand. What should I test on it before ... moreThe phone is awesome. Battery life is amazing. Video is fluid and square. What are you interested in doing with it?
Please advise which one should I go for between iPhone 6+ and Samsung s6 duos.. Thanks
dogdog, 27 Mar 2016Be honesty, Blackberry look like sinking ship. l owned Apple, Blackberry, Window phone and And... moreTruth be told Windows 10 phones feel like a oddball mix of Windows Phone 8.1 and Android features, they even have in built file manager and the interface of the file manager looks bit too much like an Android file manager. Then they have this new dropdown menu which looks as if someone crossbred Windows with Blackberry 10 and Android. And if that's not enough they have copied notification system from Blackberry 10 too, in Blackberry 10 one can reply to messages without going to hub by clicking on the reply button when a notification appears on the screen, well Microsoft have straight on copied and implemented the same idea on its notification system too. PC Sync system of Groove Music and Films and TV is a straight copy of iTunes sync and if you want iBooks equivalent then just install BookViser (Yeah it has PC app too which works in exactly same way as Mac app iBooks). With Windows 10 now there are plethora of new apps including even open source apps like ScummVM. Their new browser Microsoft Edge has an interface oddly similar to Google Chrome, although it is faster than Chrome. With Windows 10 phones I think Microsoft is back in doing what it does the best, i.e, copying randomly from everyone and renaming them all as their own.
Even Android feels more original in design than Windows 10 phones.
I want to buy a BB Passport silver edition second hand.
What should I test on it before buying it ?

Well, I doubt you will get answer to you question from everybody on this forum.
I can give you my opinion, but decision is always yours, and yours only.
If you like all the pros BB Passport offers (wide 1:1 screen, excellent battery life, great UI, mechanical QWERTY keyboard, etc.), and you can live with it's shortcomings (partial Android support, integrated battery, 'strange' design, probable discontinuation of BB10), then go for it and don't look back, because you will get an excellent device.
