    Blackberry live event also said it had 4gb of ram. Who to trust LOL
    John Chen simply said it by mistake. When he mentioned the amount of RAM there was another spec that was a 4 just above it on the graphic (can't remember what it was).

    Don't know exactly what the tweaks were, but BlackBerry said they used a custom SoC to enhance security (it was in a blog post I think). Probably some hardware level encryption and a non standard frequency. It also had a quad core GPU which wasn't mentioned in the standard S4 spec sheet.

    As near as I can tell the MSM8960T Pro in the Z30 is the same as the MSM8960DT in the MotoX which also has quad-core GPU and also minus the contextual co-processor capability. Found some discussion of it here. Funny thing the Mhz vs Ghz strange labeling which is still present in the post by thurask existed back then in HW_INFO.

    Snapdragon 800 is a family of processors. BlackBerry went for a customised 801 and so they only specify the broader processor family, not the exact model.

    I ran the Antutu benchmark on my Passport and even though it is an Android app, it scored higher than the Nexus 5 which uses the Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.3GHz. It is definitely a much newer and better SoC.

    Interesting, I also ran the Antutu benchmark and according to it, my CPU is a Dual-Core ARMv7 processor (VFPv3, NEON).

    Not sure what it is with runtime benchmarking and CPU info but here is another data point. Based on your geekbench Passport single- 773 multi 2435 vs the Nexus 5 single- 827 multi-2456.

    So the reviewers were right lol. BlackBerry themselves said it was a Snapdragon 800 on their site...

    Wouldn't it be easier to narrow down which 800/801 cpu's can use 802.11AC since only a few S5's and other devices could using 801's while only 1 maybe 2 800's could??

    F.IT who cares it's quad core on BB10 and it's darn fast just enjoy it and stop measuring small mm differences at the water fountain

    ? BlackBerry Z30 ? If it Don't Make Dollars, It don't Make Sense ?

    Incidentally, noticed a little clock bump going from 10.3.0 to 10.3.1:

    Passport - Geekbench Browser: 2.15GHz
    Passport - Geekbench Browser: 2.27GHz

    It was underclocked before. Now it's at the spec clock that Qualcomm lists.
    Shouldn't make that much difference.

    Probably should have had it like that for the reviewers though when they compared it to Android S801's and had 5-10% losses in all benchmarks because of it.

    Edit: Multiscore performance decreased?

    Noticing more revisions of the processor. My launch day model is PVS9SB1, but Geekbench has all the way up to PVS13SB1.
