Blackberry Passport Review

By modern standards, Blackberry Passport is not a regular smartphone, adopting a hybrid setup which utilizes both virtual and physical elements. It is an odd gadget due to its shape, but brings back the presently-antiquated Smartphone feature. The Passport forms an ideal Blackberry 10 device which comes with several specifications of flagship caliber. Its oddness of size and shape, along with weird keyboard design could nonetheless end up turning off potential clients. LG Optimus Vu is remotely similar, and almost perfectly square-shaped, so maybe look for this one if the Passport bold design isn’t one of your tastes.



Blackberry Passport is a wide phone, measuring 128 x 90.3mm, which arises because it employs a square display of 4.5 inches. This is significantly wider than the average phone size of 5 inches. Expect to however enjoy better reading of e-books and various articles on the device as text does not require wrapping or getting cut off oftentimes. You however do need to perform vertical scrolling more frequently and the phone fits well within one hand in awkward style.



Two-handed typing on this phone is quite good, with the hands cradling naturally the back, which prevents the gadget from slipping out. It is essential as the keyboard of three rows sits appreciably low on the gadget, making the gravity center different than where it lies for most phones. Using Passport in portrait mode with one hand is somewhat discomforting, owing to its width, which is noticeable especially when held up to the ear.



The keyboard of Blackberry Passport employs touch-sensitive track-pad which allows you to hold it sideways, scrolling through various emails, websites or Twitter feeds. This happens as you move the thumb upwards or downwards on keyboard. Though clever, there still are interruptions in user experience. Since the device is heavy and short, it still is awkward whichever way one holds it. The 196g weight of this device is fairly heavy and sufficient reason to avoid holding it with one hand alone. It however sports a robust build, which makes use of sturdy materials. It boasts having frame of stainless steel too, which lines the sides of 9.3mm and sits in-between keyboard rows. For the back, Passport utilizes soft-touch plastic, except for camera module interrupting a single metal-line close to the top. Display has been covered with a Gorilla Glass 3 slab.



The screen of Blackberry Passport has several pros and cons, with a great advantage being its high pixel-resolution of 1,400 x 1,400 that equates to pixel density of 453ppi, delivering a great viewing experience. This is the case, especially owing to its text plus pleasing visuals which are easy to read.



The screen still seemed much warmer, less vibrant and less saturated however, despite having adjustment settings for color saturation and white balance. White screens closely resemble pearl, whereas darks are approximately same grayish-black as for majority of LCDs. Even then, outdoor visibility is probably the aspect most impressive with the screen of Passport from Blackberry.

  • The Good :
    Long life of battery, superb outdoor visibility, keyboard doubles as touchpad
  • The Bad :
    Difficulty getting used to keyboard, awkward shape and size, occasional performance hiccups
Our score:
4 / 5
