    Hi guys,
    I am being really confused on whether to go for iPhone 8 or stay with Passport?
    I like keyboard, but the key2 is way too costly and am getting really good deal for iPhone 8 (500 bucks)

    Please can you help me deciding?

    What are your needs?

    Another alternative would be to wait for the Key2 LE, which is supposedly going to be about $400 USD.

    If the Passport is still meeting your needs... why change?

    If it's not, then yes an iPhone 8 for $550 is a good deal, if you don't like it... should be able to recoup most of your investment.

    $500 for an 8 (providing it's in good shape) is a good deal. I would go for it.

    Depends on your needs, if you just want a good device for texts, calls, e-mail, PKB and good camera, stay with the Passport until you feel real need to change it. It is one of the most futuristic designs ever! I also use it to write articles and backup photoshoots from my DSLR.

    If you're comfortable using iOS, and want apps I would consider the deal. You could always keep the PP and double carry.

    Id go with the passport. Might be harder to come by soon. Both have good hardware.

    Why spend money on something else when you already have something already.

    IPhone has all the apps and modern hardware.

    Passport way cooler and already paid for.

    Decide if you want to spend the money.

    Agree that most of things I need is fulfilled by Passport.
    I was just tempted by the offer for iPhone 8, otherwise I never considered a full touchscreen phone at all.

    You could also get a new/used KEYone Silver/BlackEdition or the brand new KEY2 LE for less than that iPhone 8. And you won't be typing on glass.

    The current Android version is Pie (9), with most flagships being on Oreo (8). Are you sure you want to spend money on another Passport which is stuck in Android runtime of Jelly Bean (4.3) ?
    I mean, yeah the speakers and design are awesome, but the OS is soon to be crippled (if it isn't already)

    If temptation is the alma mater of one's life ~ s/he would soon be bankrupt, both financially as well as morally.

    If you can't just resist the good deal, you may as well buy the iphone and then resell it for a few more bucks.

    If you want a good phone on overall aspect and 5+ years support go with iPhone 8. There are so many good apps for email that will meet your need on ios.

    But if you still cloudy in mind bias, go with any blackberry you want.

    Seriously $500 for iphone is worthier than a $500 blackberry.

    If we talk $500, the option only outdated keyone and key 2 LE, none of them worth of iphone, especially iphone 8. Touchscreen blackberries are even more nothing than ****.

    I'd take a KEY2 LE with 32gb storage ANY DAY over an iPhone X 256gb

    Priorities priorities...

    The iPhone X might be good at being a slab, if a slab is what you're looking for.

    Yes, I am waiting for the launch of Key2 LE.
    Wish it had the capactive keyboard though.

    I appreciate your response and cannt deny the quality of the iPhone
    But I somehow seem to be biased towards physical keyboard and that's the reason I never fell in for iPhone 6s, 7, etc
    I went to the stores to check if I can type on glass and I was always disappointed.
