    Has anyone 'moved' from a Passport back to a Z30? I'm thinking of getting another Z30, just because. Hence the question...

    If you are doing it just because, then do it already! It really doesn't sound like you'll forsake/sell/never look back on your Passport...

    It's really not like moving back and forth devices is that hard these days...

    I did just that in April. Couldn't resist the deal from Shop Crackberry. Plus I've always wanted a Z30. After a good month and half though, I'm back on my Passport, I didn't love the VKB, although I was getting used to it. I absolutely loved the form of the Z30 in my hand over the Passport. The biggest thing for me was the Passport is faster, more powerful, battery is better and I love the PKB. Still love the Z30, just not as much as my Passport.

    The Passport is by far the better of the two, but for $200 I picked up a Z30 and use both. Use the Z30 mostly over WiFi or at work. The Passport is just a beast; don't think I need to list the specs here lol.

    The Z30 is a nice all touch for a few hundred bucks. I've gotten some strange comments at work. One coworker laughed and asked jokingly "are you a drug dealer? Is that why you have two blackberrys?" lol. For the record, I'm not... and if they only knew I have five BB10s right now haha.

    I did the same as above. Passport still kills it but the Z30's pretty sweet too.

    If Z30 has a good screen I would be totally back to it.

    I am curious, why would someone buy a blackberry 16:9 phone without a physical keyboard?

    What? So ALL BlackBerry users MUST have a qwerty device? Be serious.

    I would love to have a passport with with the 16x9 ratio of most phones as a lot of my amazon games don't play well on passport.

    Will be picking up the slider for sure as I was a torch fan.

    I have both, but am not using Z30. Love the speed of PP, but somehow prefer the form factor of Z30 as it seems to better fit in pants, and in hand. Having said that, they are both AMAZING phones. After using PP, Z30 seems slow...

    I have a Z30 and still put my sim card in it to use. I like the BlackBerry 10 experience on the touch screen a lot, so I still enjoy using it all the time.

    The Z30 doesn't feel old or anything, but there is nothing like a Passport.

    Still dig my Z30. Trying out T-Mobile (actually just switched from AT&T) and am now getting 4G LTE. For me the speed differences between the Passport and Z30 is barely noticeable in day to day usage and definitely not a factor in me not using one over the other. I love the wide screen of the Passport but the form factor and build of the Z30 (my black model) in the hand, is in my opinion, the best of any '5 all touch to date. I picked up a S6 Edge at the store the other day and compared physical dimensions,feel and build and in my opinion my Z30 was better. (I like my Z30 native and the mostly all glass front and carbon fiber shell is exemplary) No doubt the build quality of my white Passport is also top notch and the capacitive PKB of the Passport is innovative and easy to use. But I cannot discount the perfection of the Z30 VKB and prediction flick typing. Lastly I find BlackBerry 10 to work very well and smooth on a all touch device like the Z30.

    Z30-simply the best touch screen BlackBerry

    Competitors 16:9 have a vast app ecosystem and many variants to choose from. So was wondering about blackberry 16:9 phones.

    Is it the hub that helps sell these phones?

    I moved from z30 to passport. When I try to use z30 again, it feels weird. Now I am quite used to passport. Love the z30 for its gorgeous screen though.

    Your wording was very off then. Z10, Z30, Z3 and Leap don't have physical keyboards. Four devices. All of them 16:9.

    Why do we Buy BB10 devices? Because of BB10.
