In my opinion bb is best OS ever but they are one setbacks not working in all countries like in Northern Sudan US embargo still stand in face of BlackBerry users preventing them from using all bb service plan and messenger that's only disadvantage of BlackBerry but as I said the multitasking is over all OS try to play YouTube in background only this function in BlackBerry phones others OS need external players security don't ask and last is security wipes returned memory like you just open box of new phone in Sudan work over WIFI only full function but you can serve net after download opera for browsing only YouTube example not working and BlackBerry service there are some hackers claiming activate the service by lower prices but don't try yet I plan to by BlackBerry z30 or classic can be cheep in Sudan market because people don't know how to use BlackBerry due to embargo and WIFI need second phone in your pocket for sharing net or hotspots,in Sudan the sun of BBM not yet shining
The Passport is an exceptional device. The camera is excellent.
There is simply no other phone like it on the market. The phone looks very large, but you soon get used to it.
I would have this over any iPhone. They're common and over rated.
Let's hope blackberry have a successful business in the future.
Dear all, having owned many Nokias for recent year, I decided to buy a Passport. The phone was shipped in a black box with your usual extras.
The sim and sd card slot are located under the plastic cover at the rear.
I have used this device for a few days now and it's great.
The layout is perfect for me, people with smalls hands may want to look elsewhere though.
Connectivity is brilliant, emails etc. the hub is absolutely brilliant.
Whatsapp is great, the speaker volume is brilliant and the camera is very good.
I have noted many people complain about the sensor's position, this is due to the camera having OIS. So when it's floating in its housing, it moves to its desired place until the camera is closed.
The phone is a true market leader and should be selling in iPhone numbers.
If anyone Hasn't tried on, you won't be disappointed.
Best device available there.
Thanks for reading my mini review.
I will need full physical qwerty query board passport anywhere have it? Please help me.
Anonymous, 28 Nov 2015The only difference is color. The price and specs are the same.Please do not misinform people on the forum.
Price of 'original' Passport is slightly lower then Silver Edition one. In EU, Silver Edition is 75 EUR more expensive then 'original' (black or white, and there is no red version officially available). Prices of red model in unofficial stores are always higher then black or white one, as it was always considered as limited edition.
Technical specifications (RAM, ROM, screen specs, etc.) are the same, but there are differences in hardware of the case (specifically regarding the question about metal frame), so black and white 'original' models have metal frame, while red model has black plastic frame instead. Silver Edition is mostly metallic (top cover above camera, and front lip under the keyboard is plastic).
The biggest difference of Silver Edition is softer keyboard compared to original models (which has quite stiff and required hard finger pressing to record key input).

ingabd, 23 Nov 2015It is the same passport came in 4 color, black, white, red, and the silver edition, the silver... moreActually, Passport SE (Silver Edition) have slightly modified keyboard (it requires softer touch then the keyboard on previous models).
Anonymous, 25 Nov 2015Red color one is the same as black one, except for color.No, it's not the same. Red BB Passport has black plastic frame around the sides, while black and white BB Passport has metal (silver) frame.
I have had this phone since September, and I absolutely looove it! I fall in love with it more each day. I've previously been owned the Blackberry Pearl many many ions before, which I liked, and then briefly had the Blackberry 9810 Torch, it was just okay to me. By that time, I had become hooked on Nokia's and hadn't touched another brand of phone until now....back to Blackberry....the Passport so impressed! It's solid, well-made, quality materials (not cheap stuff). This phone is made to last. I receive many compliments on my phone, as well. I have the white on white --- it is so sleek and sexy ( I've been told many times). I'm always asked "What kinda phone is that?" "Where did you get it?" "Woe that's Blackberry?!" Oh and the screen is magnificent, the keyboard makes you nostalgic and is so easy to learn. The screen size is perfect for reading, studying, and working. The speakers are super loud (you won't need a wireless speaker, believe me). Battery life is amazing with even heavy usage. Oh and apps? Any android app you want....no kidding! I could go on on. And we won't even talk about the amazing photos. Please some body stop me....can you tell I'm impressed? can you tell ?
