    I'm noticing quite a bad performance when on a Skype video call with my girlfriend just today. The screen is lagging when I try to open up the text messaging window in Skype during the call and the video/audio is not in sync.

    Is this a common problem with the current Skype version on BB Passport or is there something that can be done about this?

    So this is a known issue I take it, probably because this app is a direct Android port. I probably shouldnt expect a fix anytime soon

    I think a few questions need to be asked here:
    - were you on WIFI? If so, how many bars?
    - were you on cellular? If so, how many bars?

    If the connection is poor or degraded, hence the Skype call would be the same.

    Im on Wifi about 50% signal, 100Mbit full duplex line. This is definitely not the problem. For reference I use my Lumia 920 which runs it flawless on the same location.

    This definitely is a software thing and I was curious if others have the same experiences. Perhaps the Android version works better or a different firmware/software revision.Currently I'm running software release 10.3.1.1779

    I know this probably isn't going to happen buuuut, maybe persuade your girlfriend to buy a BlackBerry Q5 or Z10 on the cheap and then you guys can use BBM video works wonderfully for me on my Q5.

    As far as I know the front facing camera on all BlackBerry 10 devices is exactly the same (excluding Z3)
