People comments here that, the width of the phone is not acceptable. But if you compare with Z Ultra, The Width is lesser than Z Ultra and Z Ultra is ~5cm taller than this.
Yet another idiocracy phone that doesn't make sense (Seemingly it's different, but then you notice the details that make it yet another device for people with no brain). They put a qwerty and then made it useless by putting only 3 rows and "forgetting" the number keys.
Of course, the non-removable battery is the mandatory "premium" "feature".
The BlackBerry 10 browser is the fastest browser among all the major mobile operating systems. I do not know how GSM Arena came to a different conclusion.

Anonymous, 15 Oct 2014@JACK SPARRROW Does your passport fit in your pocket ? there are so many phones over 5". Do they fit in your pocket? Maybe if your pocket is like a bag :))
Neutral, 15 Oct 2014Nothing wrong with BB sticking to their guns with a qwerty keyboard..samsung has mass brainwas... moreSamsung has not brainwashed anyone lol. They just create insantly amazing products with top of the line specs etc. If by advertising there product in a mass way you call that brainwashing....then I shouldnt have gotten a degree in business advertising

[deleted post]Dimensions ase good, its barely longer than an iPhone 5s. Maybe you havent heard of DuckDuckGo or any other websearch so i Duck'd it for you, here it is beside Note 4, http://icdn4.digitaltrends.com/image/blackberry-passport-vs-galaxy-note-4_1-1106x737.jpg
and here beside iPhone 5 and some galaxy, http://images.techtimes.com/data/images/full/10962/bb-passport.png?w=600
they wanted the passport to sport a squareish display. ok. 1:1 ?? it's like a bad joke. a 4:3 screen could make one-handed use a lot easier while maintaining the square profile.
This is supposed to be the size of a Canadian passport, so I help my passport in hand and found I would never be comfortable using it as a phone. It's very awkward to hold (and I have above average size hands) and looks dumb. It's great for texting, so those who use their cell phones mainly for that may like it, but I don't and I have, therefore, no use for a phone with such awkward proportions.
Nothing wrong with BB sticking to their guns with a qwerty keyboard..samsung has mass brainwashed us with marketing in every area our eyes see so let's not always be sheep and give credit where its due
Anonymous, 15 Oct 2014@JACK SPARRROW Does your passport fit in your pocket ? No, and if it does its because a passport is bendable, a blackberry is not bendable. What a non logical question u asked
This phone is great, with great responsiveness and build quality.
They should make one with exact same design, but with more conventional size ie: a slightly less wide version, which will look great in my opinion.

The only time I ... moreBecause in the other hand you might have an umbrella, dog leash, shopping bag, cigarette, coffee, someone's hand (some people have children), gun, beer, hot dog, etc, etc. Having said that, I still like this phone.
