    after picking up my Z30 again this morning, following 3 days of using my glorious new Passport.

    The narrow and poor screen display/resolution of the Z30 is jokes!

    Same here. I cannot believe that I used to use it constantly

    Edit: This is meant to be good old banter. I never intended to get the passport straight away and am just totally surprised how great it is. Just like all the others who have been writing here.

    This was written by my Z30 since my Passport is on charge...

    I too picked up my Z30 after a few days of using the passport. The screen looked hideous. Thankfully I've sold it, I would have never been able to go back to it!

    I used my Q10 yesterday for a few hours and it looks tiny and the keyboard feels tiny.

    Try watching Netflix on the Passport, and then the Z30. Then you won't be laughing.

    Did you happen to notice how small your Z30 feels now? I'm not sure if I could go back to a phone that size.

    I tried to watch a tv show (they have more than movies).
    It's a feature most would expect of a modern OS.
    I like my Passport. But it's just a device....

    I did, and I liked it. I like light weight. The option to have more viewing area in landscape is missed. So is the high contrast screen. The Passport *definitely has it's pluses. But it's not perfect.

    That's how I felt when I got my z10 after having an iphone 3g. I'm sure it'll be the same when my passport arrives.

    The Z30 screen resolution is a joke. That's the whole reason I never upgraded. It's noticeably pixilated.

    I was worried about netflix but I used it rarely, now I use showbox, it will play a video through the browser and the playon feature works from there. I just use miracast now.

    Believe it or not, the increase in dpi between the Bold 9900 and the Z30 was less than 3%. The Z30 screen was only good in size, that's it.

    The passport isn't aimed for people that watch netflix on their phone, it's for people that watch netflix latter after work, at home, in a Home Cinema with a 60inch TV

    I wonder how people like you watch TV or work on a laptop. Because today's phones are incredible ppi compared to laptops or TV's. Z30 might not be as sharp as a passport, but saying it looks horrible and pixelated it's just ridiculous IMO. Today's phone screens resolution are total overkill

    The ppi on the Z30 is ridiculous. Very pixilated. The phones of today aren't overkill. They're great. I love the screen on my brother's GS4. Beautiful and crisp. Releasing any phone nowadays that isn't full HD is a joke.

    There has been little to begrudge on the screen of the Z30.
    The display of the passport is just unreal, however

    I prefer the big screen as well, however I have kids and sometimes I in the car waiting for them, so I pull out my Z30 put in in front of the gauge cluster and bam watching Netflix to pass the time. besides I will never buy a keyboard phone, not for me. Unless BB stops making touch only, then maybe.

    The Z30 is 300ppi, and at normal viewing distances, there not that much difference between it. I wonder how you feel watching a movie at home in a 60inch tv that has something like 30 or 40ppi. How do you work on your laptop? do you have a 4k screen on your laptop? Because even a 4K laptop only has around 280ppi, less than the Z30...

    The fact that the Z30's screen is hard to see in bright sunlight is a problem, not the resolution.

    Do you think Iphone's screens are bad and pixelated aswell?

    Yes there is a slight difference but at normal viewing distances it is not that great. Switching between my Nexus 5 and Z30 I can notice the difference in sharpness but you come acclimatised. It is not a deal breaker IMO.

    Companies release non HD phones due to the total device cost and target market, the Nexus 5 though an amazing price, the screen itself is not top notch with light bleed (have that) and dead pixels (have one or two)

    As for watching films and TV, say on a commute a phone is passable, but the Passport IMO is not the ideal screen ratio for films, black borders ahoy.
