I love all these opinions on this device.
Did you hear the story of a manufacturer who lost top position in the market, but who used its time away in the forgotten shadowlands to quietly improve its products everyday so that one day it shone so much that it could not be ignored.
My passport reminds me of this story.

Gagan, 12 Feb 2015Hey Atul, did you get rid of your Z10 and bought a passport ? How is your experience when comp... moreMy z10 still the best but passport seem more power, I use 3 battery for daily use
I dont know why some people keep posting BS. BB Passport DOES have STEREO noise cancellation through the 4 microphones... You dont like BB, fine, but dont expose yourselves for the haters you are by posting crap so easily Googleable to check and as easy to find out as lies...
Anonymous, 17 Feb 2015Blackberry is amazing phone, for all blackberry addicts, this is a dream come true, for me it ... moreYou are right, but there is no noise cancellation mic to make the surrounding area quite so the people on the other side of your call, could hear you well.
The phone works well if there is no noise where you may be.
So the restaurants are out, street is out, home (if your family is loud) is out etc.
That is a mistake on their part and stinks because the phone is as you described it great.
AnonD-245509, 16 Feb 2015Passport is have four mics, read official specification on blackberry site.Atul, I did read and it does not have the noise cancellation mic.
Maybe now you should read it. If I am wrong show me how.
It was a mistake on their part and it was stupid not to include
such an important feature.
Go to a noisy place and make a call. Ask the people you're calling if they
could hear you well.
Then take another phone which does have a noise cancellation mic and ask the same question.
I think the phone is excellent, except they screwed up and someone should be fired in Blackberry's team. Maybe the CEO since it was his pet project.
On passport & other keyboard phone Hindi not possible but on Z series phone you can configured though language & inputs.
For google play you need SNAP app.
For details visit Crackberry.com
How can I download Googleplay and I want to use Hindi as I was using in iphone 5 in key pad.
Blackberry is amazing phone, for all blackberry addicts, this is a dream come true, for me it is the best phone in the market, big clear screen, excellent keyboard for typing, fast strong processor, sleek design, excellent options.
Passport is have four mics, read official specification on blackberry site.
Someone should be fired at Blackberry for not including a noise cancellation mic on what they call a "signature" BB model.
Very stupid on their part.
Speaking on the Passport is impossible in a noisy place.
Too bad, it would have been my favoured phone.
sharing my camera experience.
I took snap with passport and Smasung A5 with both 13 MP of rubic's cube in background with blue jeans.
A5 was giving bright color but when I check with Passport color was not that bright but I was able to see lining of jeans clearly but A5 was showing line on jeans very blurred. then I asked color expert why is that so, he said Samsung uses artificial colors thats why colors are much bright on A5, then I zoomed in both snaps then found as I zooming in bright colors of cube started getting patchy, but it was not case with passport.
Then check similar thing with Lumia 20 MP camera, again same thing happend.
so for, who ever interested in good quality camera, they should check pictures with both the phones and reach to conclusion.
would be checking with iphone very soon
KAZC, 13 Feb 2015Does anybody know if i can download snapchat in the blackberry passport?From amazon or you can download on Android phone and then copy .apk file to blackberry and just run it by tapping on it.
then you go ....
The best Blackberry ever! I succeeded in installing Google Play and MoboMarket! All Android apps from those stores work natively with no apparent problem. Android apps such as Page Manager and Facebook work seamlessly and even has notifications in the hub! All the sounds that you get when you like or comment a post is also present, so are all the emoticons for comments! You get the security of Blackberry with the wealth of Android apps!
