    After all my YouTube research on passport, I really didn't get a feel on how it is to watch video on passport itself. I realize screen is smaller but is it too small? I do not spend hours on Netflix but do divert myself time to time. My contract is ending soon and I'm looking at taking a passport jump.

    It's amazing!!! I watched a music video side by side with my iPhone 5 and the Passport image on the full screen just blew my mind!!

    Great sound too!! Seriously....

    basically, it depends on video. but you'll have some small black frames.

    it looks like this:

    but anyhow, it is MORE than enough to watch Youtube etc.

    I have actually watched 90 min movie and it was really ok.

    BTW - some real life pics in my passport review:

    I have borrowed some pics from the internet, some are mine.

    you can see how some games, some apps, some web sites are displayed, some video while walking, some photo samples (without checking the quality)

    Sounds good. I'm coming from HTC One M7 and from what I'm seeing the speakers will match sound for a great video experience. I imagine?

    Eric, I also came from a One M7. Was a great device for multimedia, but the passport does so many things right, I couldn't ignore it and BlackBerry anymore

    The actual video size of the Passport is slightly larger than an iPhone4 screen and slightly smaller than an iPhone5.

    The Media is bashing on the Passport, just because the screen is not 16:9 or 4:3 so ye, you have bezels... but in reality, as I wrote above, the actual video size is very good!

    No its not too small. I watched two episodes of Empire on the screen while I was the gym yesterday. With the Fox Now android app.

    I wish they had a mode to just have it fill up the whole screen! The passport screen reminds of a big screen tv from 1993. Nothing wrong with that...just fill up the whole screen Blackberry.

    It is absolutly no problem to watch videos on the Passport. The size is totally ok and the black bezels on top and bottom do not disturb.

    I use it every evening to watch some movies on amazon prime instant video.

    It's not small by any comparison. Yes black bars are there but the quality of the screen and sound will compensate for the same.

    I like to watch videos in my passport. I really enjoy

    The many Bus trips will test my video experience for sure. I am anxious to get my hands on it, I am having a hard time typing this text while bus is bouncing around!

    I frankly have no issues watching videos on my screen. It's fine for tv shows and maybe even some movies. The screen is plenty big and i have no problems with the black bars because of the square screen.
