    I've had a previous passport before. Love the phones. Got a great deal on a red one so i decided to go for it.

    I have one major issue with the red one, and that is the material of the back cover. It doesn't have that slightly grippy texture of the black one. It feels very very good plasticy and very very slippery and feels prone to dropping. Definitely want to sell and purchase a black one

    What do you mean by that? You think I'll just get a lot of attention because of the red colour? Haha.

    If you was in the uk I would swap my black one with you as looking for a red one.

    You're going to forego the whole red experience because it's not as grippy as the black one?

    It is made out of a different material, and I think if it were made out of the same type of material, it would be more likely to pick up dirt (it's just not visible on the black one). I have both, and the red one definitely gets more attention.

    You might want to look at the Ringke Fusion case on Amazon. It's like $11 or something, and it's clear and really protects the Passport well, without being bulky. I like to put my red one in it, so the red shows.

    For the record, I've had my black Passport since it launched in September, and the red one since November, and I haven't dropped either one of them without a case... so the difference in back material hasn't been a problem for me.

    The red case looks GREAT on the Passport!!! It's a very shiny candy apple red color.

    I don't want to sound mean or want to point the finger at you, but the rather slippery back of the red and white Passport variants has been a topic since they got released. There have also been quite some topics in this regard around here, the last one was just a couple of days ago. It's not only the Passport, the non-black variants of Q10, Classic, Z30 or Z10 also have a smooth plastic back without any glass-weave or soft-touch coating.

    I think BlackBerry once stated the bright colors would look ugly rather soon if they kept those rubbery coatings on the backs.

    I actually really really like the back of the red Passport. To me its porcelain back is much sexier than the black's one. And I'm really envious of your purchase.
