    I am seriously considering it but to be honest I am having an internal struggle about it cause the z30 is a pretty good phone that honestly does all I need pretty well. Obviously the draw to the passport is the keyboard and spec combination, but I'm curious to see if the upgrade is worth it both cost and functionality wise.

    Coming from Z30 and Q5. So far it's the biggest smartphone leap in terms of form and function that I've ever experience from an upgrade. Takes some getting used to but once you get up to speed you realize there are so many productive facets to this phone.

    The Z30 is great (had one since launch) but the Passport is a game changer in my opinion (business owner point of view).

    I love my Z30 too, but......

    Never realized how much I miss the physical keyboard til I tried the passport.

    Bigger screen, faster processor, long battery life, physical keyboard, amazing display and resolution.

    Can't resist.

    Will be upgrading soon.

    I'm loving my Z30, but as I run a Z10 too, I'll most likely pension that off in preference for a Passport.

    Can anyone tell me if the Passport has the 'memory' feature on the predictive texting? (I don't know if this is a BB10 thing or a device feature.) Whatever, I think it is an incredible feature...

    It's a BB10 feature as far as I know.

    I have and the keyboard layout is the only thing that I am having to adjust to. I was running the leaked code on my Z30 and only had issues with the camera speed. This phone does not have that issue. Liking it and not regretting it at all. As far as the money...that is debatable on a case by case basis.

    Only wish there were more accessories available at launch.

    After leaving my beloved Z30, I had some doubts, but once I start using the passport I can't stop, great phone for me.

    Z30 to Passport after a days use:
    Pros
    - wider & super sharper screen for text, message, email, etc.
    - web browsing in full desktop mode glory.
    - better viability in sunlight, like the Z10.
    - 10.3 ( all will get it down the road)
    - keyboard with touch scrolling (I am a touch screen person, I am liking the keyboard input)
    - camera with better image and video quality with OIS and good video focus tracking.
    Cons:
    - no big landscape video playback. 16:9 video is sharp, but small
    - scaling issues with some apps and games.
    - need to order a new special cable for HDMI out.
    - don't have that great feeling and looking Z30 CF-like back. The Passport back is a bit too sticky and a dust magnet. Maybe it will age better.
    - use nano SIM, Z30 uses a micro SIM. I just cut it to size with a pair of scissor; still a hassle and now need an adapter to go back.

    Same experience here. First day had my doubts. It was because the keyboard was so different. Now I'm used to it and love it. So happy to have keyboard back. I also love the speakers on this. Better than Z30 and I love that phone. It is different. To justify the cost coming from a Z30 depends on your finances. Both fantastic phones, Passport slightly better IMHO.
