    New to the forum. Previous iPhone user, but came back to my beloved Blackberry (Classic) world. Thinking of upgrading to the K1. Can any Passport and/or Classic users speak to the handset & speakerphone quality? Love Classic's phone quality. Upgrade recommended?

    Nothing compares to the passport stereo speakers. The classic is good also.

    Sadly the KEYone isnt nearly as loud as either of those phones.


    Aside from the present notifications issues resulting from the July security patch, I've grown to like the keyone. The battery life is excellent (double that of the passport) and the camera is very good.

    Bummer! Phone quality is the big sell for me right now. The sole reason I came back to Blackberry. Might check out the Passport.

    Quality is relative. The BB10 devices never compared to 9000, 9700 and 9900. They in turn were nothing close to 7200 and 8700 for indestructible design. Times change and products evolve.

    I had an iPhone, went to Classic when it was launched, now on Keyone. I did notice a difference with sound / speaker on Keyone which is not as loud, but still does the work, I love the phone. I use a BOSE speaker for music, awesome!. The occasional use of phone speaker works fine, not as good as I enjoyed it on the Classic, but not a deal breaker.

    I think both the speakers and esp the microphone are terrible.

    The passports speaker phone is absolutily the best in the industri, i put my phone on the kitchen table and walk around talking with no problem. The mic and the speakers are superior and i have never used a better speaker phone. Iva had a konference speaker at work and always disconnect it to use my PP instead cause of the mic quality.

    How about other than loudness... Does the speaker crack at high volume?
