Engadget Review

The Passport is the best BlackBerry 10 device you can buy, and comes with a number of flagship-caliber specs. But its odd shape and size, as well as its weird keyboard, may be a turnoff for many.

Pros
  • Keyboard doubles as touchpad
  • Long battery life
  • Fantastic outdoor visibility
  • Good camera
  • Robust build
Cons
  • Don't even try using it one-handed
  • Keyboard is difficult to get used to
  • Awkward size and shape
  • App selection is better now, but still needs some work
  • Occasional hiccups in performance
