    Sad to say it. But my short love affair with my Passport is over.

    It's hard to live with a lousy camera.

    Hard to run with a Passport in my pocket.

    Hard to do online banking without Schwab app.

    Can't steam phish on the passport.

    And frankly email and texting on iPhone works just fine.

    Sorry to hear that. They say the Passport isn't for everyone. Even I switch to my Z30 every so often...

    The Passport will only get better as software update release.

    Wow--IMHO it is so easy to install Snap or GPS as long as you can read instructions. I wish you well tho and perhaps you are better suited for the iPhone.

    It's a good idea to install Snap, a native BB10 Google Play client on the Passport. It allows you to have access to all those apps like Schwab and/or, perhaps, some app-centric way of streaming Phish's music. The app runtime player is *very* well-integrated with BB10.

    In regards to the camera, though. You are correct in that iOS has much better camera software. But, this very latest 10.3.2 leak improved most of the performance issues for me. Would I like to see a better camera app in terms of autofocus speed and such? Yes! But, the thing that seems entirely inconsistent about your comments is that you said you might return to the Passport if it runs Android. The stock Android camera is *significantly* worse than the BB10 camera. Now, sure, they both fail to compete with iOS and there are some decent cameras in other Android distributions like Cyanogenmod, but if you are really about the camera, I don't think trying to get BlackBerry to go Android is going to help improve things. (As an aside, I've heard that Windows 10 camera will actually be better than the iPhone's camera, not just in configurability -- which it's been there for a while -- but also in performance, which is hard to believe...)

    What he's never got snap or Google play working? No wonder he wants to leave... Google play is super easy to install.

    Android on BB10 don't run as smooth as on android phones, but it definitely fill the gap for a person who addicted to used some android apps.

    I believe only batter life alone will beat iphone 6 in the first round.
