    I dropped this thing four times or so onto concrete and tiles four foot sometimes with sedio case other times without, not even a ding on case let alone anything wrong with this TANK!

    Curious how do you break it, run it over with your truck?...

    The first thing I was worried about is camera focus after each drop when realized no cosmetic damage and each time it's 100 percent! Hopefully will be no more going to bed with it and waking up forgetting it's on my chest as have tile flooring. Hah.

    Thank you seidio and blackberry!

    I've dropped it about 4x on concrete and wooden floors. I only had a 1 millimeter ding on one corner of the steel frame

    I worry about internals bouncing round like a person in a 1970's steel car however think heard it was nearly military rated for drops not only for cosmetic damage but internal as well?..

    Focus still as good as it ever was, working. It's only thing wrong with the PP imo as we all know anyway! Close up focus is blah! Otherwise great phone of all time, can't put it down!

    Exactly! Sell that add a few bucks to get an SE and seidio case and you will have to run It over with a mac truck! Haha. Still wish I had rugs even though love real tiles however love my passport more!...

    The OG looks nearly just as husky with its I beams?....


    PS: does OG PP mean original gangster passport? LOL

    It's actually original but now that you said it. Hmm.. I actually thought this can be a good mafioso-issued device with BES and stuff, although I don't think they want to be called original gangster.

    No doubt the SE is a tank of a smartphone and tiles floors rock! Some call it the first passport OG/original gangster and the politically correct LOL call it original. Either way, these passports are good durable workhorses.

    I wanted to use a Seidio case too before. But I realized how pretty the naked Passport is! I actually have the original white.

    Same as in I take it out my seidio case to molest it from time to time but always put it back in as dropped it six times now onto tile and concrete and not a ding or malfunction on case let alone passport! The seidio case with auto sleep holster is worth every penny it's so amazing with its self healing properties just enough protection to full protect a decent drop and the lip to protect cameras and screen as well as keyboard! Love it!!!!

    Your so right...

    I do worry about the internals a little like camera focus but so far so good! Dropped twice in one night last night not a scratch! LOL! Camera focus fine! However I swore I read somewhere that it was near military rated for drops! Maybe that was the LG V 10 regardless I think it is!...


    Love my seidio case, Catch

    After going 'naked' with my og passport, I managed to nudge it off a kitchen worktop where it landed on a plastic bottle and slid to the floor. Phew, that was lucky. Not a mark on it.

    Unfortunately it was dead. As a dodo. Won't charge, nothing, nada, zilch, rien.

    I can't survive without a phone, so next day, after being quoted 170 for BlackBerry to look at it, I gave up, and have bought a Priv.

    Much as I loved the passport and OS, I can't see a future in BB10 so that seemed like a good time to move.

    I do miss it, but I still have a pkb, hub and as many apps as I want.

    Hopefully it will continue to improve with future updates.
