    I'm very interested in the Passport, but one thing really plagues me. The Voice Control on 10.2 is OK, but not good enough to allow me to use a two-hand device. I've been using my Z30 over the weekend instead of the Z10 to get a feel for a phone that is too big for my one-handed use.
    The verdict is that Voice control improvement is a MUST for me.
    The previews make the Passport out to be a definite two-hander. Anyone know if 10.3 brings VC up to new standards?

    I guess any answer for you would be one's own personal opinion as to improvement.
    Case in point: I have a Z30 and can use it one-handed. Also, I never use voice control.
    I do have a 10.3 OS on the phone. Maybe you should load 10.3 and check it out for yourself?

    Really, II Arrows?

    Passport = 2 hands, VC = 1 hand. Updated VC on Passport? Seems relevant to me.

    Doesn't change based on the device, it's the same across all BB10 devices. It strictly depends on software version.

    The guy's right....VC is part of the OS and the phone is just running that OS so this post should be in the 10.3 OS forums and not in the Passport forums. In this way you'll be able to receive more information overall because more ppl will see the post and not just people who're interested in the Passport....because there's actually people who care about the 10.3 and visit the specific forum and here you find mainly people who're hyped up for the Passport so they come here to soak up any news they can possibly find. Think about it.

    I found the voice control on my z10 is much improved with the latest official release.

    The funny thing is I find an alternate really good, and then horrible. It's just too inconsistent. As an example, this message is using voice control. Not bad, but difficult to correct while you're driving.

    *edit via keyboard: In the beginning it should say "...find it alternately..."
