    OP, how do you find the space bar on the keyboard? Is it too small?

    Kareem,
    Thanks for all your feedback. How are you finding the speaker volume in comparison to previous devices?

    You need to hold the device and have exactly In the middle which is a bit annoying at first as the device is wide. Volume wise, I would say its equivalent to previous; nth special and good enough.

    Many thanks for doing this Q and A!

    I find myself using Waze and Soundcloud while driving, both android ports. On a long drive with navigation going, i find that it does lag the phone, and audio actually skips quite often. Also the phone can become unresponsive at times.

    I've tried using google maps and songza as alternatives and find that android app performance although significantly better than before with 10.3 on my Q10, it still has issues running heavy navigation apps + audio streaming at the same time. Can you please run a combination of navi (google maps / waze) and audio (sound cloud, songza) and see if you get any slow downs, unresponsive GUI, audio skipping issues?

    I'm hoping that the leaked build i'm running is just out of date and that improvements have been made, as well as the sheer processing power will make alleviate these issues.

    Define top phone? I don't believe comparing a BlackBerry to iPhone or android phones would be a fair comparison as its a different OS with totally different internal operation but this is the fastest BlackBerry with no lags whatsoever till moment. The device is super fast.

    One thing i've done yesterday is comparing an android app launch (same app ofcourse) between the Passport and the latest LG .. Guess what? Passport won!

    That's nice... One thing the bugged me was the extra time BB10 took to open android apps compared to android, in BB10 we stared at a black screen for a bit

    How do you feel about the phone today? I mean, do you feel like keeping it? or do you like it, but still not sure about the form-factor?

    Passport doesn't come under the 'like' category, i'd put it under a 'wow'. This phone is the best in the market for whatever purpose you wana use it for.

    As for the lag in android apps, its not there anymore.

    I need to stop reading this thread!

    I was so happy with my z30, but the screen looks amazing on this. And I like that it has wifi ac, I find I don't use the hdmi cable as much since I picked up my maracast adapter, and the wifi ac should make streaming much better.

    OP, do you feel you were quickly able to adjust to the keyboard? I have been using touch screen for about a year now, didn't like leaving the keyboard at first but now I'm comfortable. However, this wouldn't be like going back to a normal qwerty phone.

    Is there any chance if you can check if pacemaker (dj app) is available to download as I know it's not available on the Q10! I love it on my Z30 and wonder if the screen estate will be ideal for the passport!

    It would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance
