There is no way android or apple compares in productivity. When you see android commercials, all they advertise is entertainment in google play like movies and games. Even in amazon commercials, it's all about amazon prime so you can watch your favorite movies and listen to music. Apple is all like, check your health with our heart rate monitor and count how many calories you burn per day and send it to your health professionals. Is that really necessary? Because they don't care. They just want to sell you prescription drugs so they make more money....
Blackberry has everything you need. Besides snapchat and instagram but honestly who needs that?
real ting, 17 Oct 2014Very silly ad how often do you really use that pen. S-pen is one of the reasons someone buy the note 4. I just hate listening to bold claim by bb user that their smartphone is the best for productivity while it's not.
BB10 maybe of the smoothest os out there (z10 battery crap - dont even buy it) and the only worth mentioning is probably just the z30 and passport.

U think u're talking to 5 year old? You only said about office.. While note is not just about office, note is like paper not just office (my $100 android have office in it).. But the note 4 is about Scrapbook, taking picture about your work and highlight which important or which one need revision, not to mention drawing and hand writing, saving note while you call.. How u can draw on passport? I DONT BELIEVE YOU'RE A NOTE USER!
Multi windows - this one is surely handy can passport do that? because i know other bb10 os phone cant do this...
real ting, 17 Oct 2014Very silly ad how often do you really use that pen. I am a Note 3 user and I can tell you that I really use the spen. I use it when for whatever reason I have wet hands or when I'm eating and I can't use both hands, I use it when I want to note something on a print screen, I use it for scrapbook (I want to open a bussiness right now and I'm looking for a place. I look on internet, I make my choses, I save all to the scarp book and then I go to visit every place in person because I want to choose the best place for my bussiness). And I don't have to tell you that recently I fall in love with the hand writing which is awsome on the Note 3. And I also use the pen when I'm browsing the web because I don't have to zoom for selecting something on the screen.
If default Docs To Go not enough for you, just install Kingsoft Office apk .. I can install and run it successfully .. Blackberry Passport is real productivity phone .. Since OS BB 10 is capable to load android apps, I think apps gaps is no such big issue anymore .. As become manager of IT company, I'm really happy Blackberry Passport user .. No regret to buy this phone .. Trust me

I wonder how fast is the Passport because I know that the Note 4 is superfast. I don't have any of these two devices (yet!!) but I have a Note 3 and I know that it is (almost) impossible to replace the productivity of the spen and combined with the removable batterry makes it an awsome device for bisiness . I can't wait to "meet" the Passport. I never used a BlackBerry device but this one definitely has my attention.
In the Review it is mentioned that there is no 4k Support for Image Shooting, Well with the coming 10.3.1 passport will support 4k resolution.
Please make a note of that

Yes I did. Those DocsToGo POS is destroying productivity. Again, passport is bad android phone, with no productivity tools.
Multi-language support on BB10 is awesome. Unlike other OS's where you have to specify which language you type in. You can select upt to three languages and just go. BB10 will figure out which language you type in and suggest along the way. This means you can use three languages in one sentence without selecting anything or stopping your chain of thought.
If they give this Canadian black berry passport 5 year residential visa for canada.. then will think about that... just kidding. .. but bb is best for security. .. i accept more famous android is more hacked and no privacy but people dont know that...
Miroslav, 16 Oct 2014I had it, and returned it. On top of say good bye to single hand use, it's a bad android phone... moreLol, please have you ever thought of productivity? If you haven't get a passport, this phone is crazy, it's mad , it's the best out there, bb got it this time. No body thought they could come out with a touch enable keypad, they jam all of mobile frequencies, just don't say anyyhing else until you have a productive life and mind then you have a passport
Believe this they will come with a stylus very soon to enhance more productiveness
High five and raise you glass to the biggest device

I'm a bb user too but not a blind one--- said that BB is the mo... moreI don't believe you're a true BB10 user...The Note 4 is in no way as productive as the Passport. I have both (yes I've had both from the day of release) and despite all the nice features of the Note 4 the Passport still is the most productive device. All tasks are a lot quicker to perform on the Passport than the Note 4.
The video you show, as you should know reflects what is possible to perform on the Note 4 but not with that precise smoothness and speed - the stylus, though accurate is not accurate enough, not as quick enough and not as precise enough.
This doesn't make the Note 4 a bad device at all, but you can't compare the Note 4 with the Passport, both are good at what they're meant to do, both target different niche market and both have their unique features. After 2 weeks using the Note 4 and Passport, the Passport was the better device for me I'm talking based on actual experience not videos I watch!
Finally someone had to break the monotony from rectangular, 'rotate for a wide screen' way of doing mobile computing to a SQUARE screen!
Don't you think, this form factor makes it way easier to browse websites, do emailing and watch videos without rotating the phone physically?
The problem with 16:9 form factor is that when you have horizontal 'wide' space - the page of the website / email chain, needs to be scrolled too much. While if you try using that pages /email in the normal mode, then screen is tall but not wide enough for a good view!
Therefore, from the practicality point of view, if I were to imagine myself using this device, I would also carry another very long battery life BlackBerry phone along with it.
Reason is simple: Passport for Mobile Computing (Business + Personal), Blackberry Phone for crystal clear phone calls, conference calls and contacts management.
We spend too much battery life of a phone on computing and screen time. So when you have to make that ultra important phone call - you are out of charge.
RIM Blackberry Passport breaks that and for the good!
Blackberry fan boys ---yeah... I'm a bb user too but not a blind one--- said that BB is the most productive phone.. Probably they never see youtube... look at this video till the end because i think this is the most productive phone to date http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tv7C4e8thv0
Who's say BB10 & its device epic fail, dead, etc I know that person never try use that device & don't know how to use it.
The battery life of this device is so impressive... OH my goodness...
A very nice and true review about BB Passport, its a fabulous device, i don't even have to compare this Phone with any other phone out there, because its simply Epic, and am glad Blackberry got this phone out, Its Unique, Classy, and pure business phone...Blackberry is back, and am enjoying every bit of the New Blackberry.
