"Reception was also better than other phones. I'm told by BlackBerry that this is down to an "adaptive antenna" which alters the signals to the environment for better quality."

"With its sharp edges it won't fit comfortably in the pocket of anyone but Koko the Clown and while most phones offer a choice between height or width by simply turning them on their side, the Passport's square dimensions mean you've only one option, one that doesn't really favour one-handed typing."

"...it's actually a surprisingly good handset -- the best BlackBerry 10 smartphone so far. It's well-built, comes with clever engineering and software services, has good battery life and features a screen that's easy to read outdoors. "

"BlackBerry's biggest USP is that combo of keyboard and smartphone and on the Passport, it's a pain to use. No matter how much we tried it was just not comfortable. Selecting text, editing it became chores that they shouldn't have been."
