AT&T BlackBerry Passport Review!!!
The Blackberry Passport is massive and demands respect. This isn’t your mothers Blackberry folks! If you know me, you know that I will always love Blackberry. It measures 128mm tall by 90.3mm wide and weighs in at 196g. It will not go unnoticed. However with the size and weight comes great things. The Blackberry Passport has a 4.5 inch square screen with a resolution of 1440 x 1440 pixels it delivers a pixel density of 453 ppi making texts and images incredibly sharp and clear. Very few handsets deliver a higher density. There is 32GB of internal storage. You can add more storage via MicroSD cards. There is a slot for cards up to 128GB in capacity located under a small removable panel on the back plate next to the Nano-SIM card slot.
There is a 13-megapixel back facing camera that can shoot stills in three aspect ratios — 4:3, 16:9 and the screen’s native 1:1. Shots seem to be a bit washed-out at times, but on the whole the image quality is acceptable. Features include HDR, face detection, geotagging and self-timer. There are panorama and burst modes, and also time shift, which captures a rapid burst of shots from which you can select one to save. There are a few scene modes — auto, action, night, beach or snow, and whiteboard. The 2-megapixel front camera shares access to all of these settings.
Unlike other smart phones the Blackberry Passport has an amazing battery life which helps it stand out from the rest of the competition. BlackBerry says you’ll get up to 24 hours of 3G talk time from the 3,450mAh battery, 14.5 days on standby, 91 hours of audio playback and 11 hours video playback. Which is pretty awesome.
BB10 operating system is simple and clean in my book. Although the Passport looks huge, it is actually very comfortable to hold. The size of the screen is lovely, and THEN let’s mention the keyboard. I love having the full Qwerty keyboard, with easy pop-ups expanding on the touch screen. Honestly I see now downside to the Blackberry Passport except for a few common apps. Simply said, I love it.
