    Guy I am currently using BlackBerry Q10, 2.5 years old. It's still working great as I don't have it poisoned by android apps. Now just for a change, I was looking for an upgrade. I am confused as to what should I upgrade to, Passport or Classic? Need some advice from the classic and passport users. It would be easy for me to decide by your experiences. Thanking you all in advance.

    My vote would be a Passport. The keyboard is awesome! It feels good in your hands and it is a very unique device. Screen size is a plus for reading and emails. It is the same exact size of an actual passport to give you a idea of pocket fit! I bought my a month ago and I have zero regrets.

    Owned all three. Only concern with Passport would be to watch out for some defective units that had screen lift. Classic, to my best recollection, didn't seem to have any screen lift issues, at least reported in any significance.

    Price is going to vary by retailer and is something you can easily find out for yourself. If it were me id go with the passport regardless of price. I'm in the process of switching to a q10 from an android phone but eventually want a passport myself. Owned a q10 before but never a passport.

    I recently purchased a brand new, sealed Passport on ebay for $180 including an OEM Hard Shell.

    Passport, no doubt. Bought mine last year and it's great.

    Definitely, Passport.
    Go for the silver addition. I have both and, in my opinion, the SE is much nicer to use. Better keyboard and the corners are not as sharp angled as the original. Much more comfortable to hold. BUT!!, even the original one is beautiful.

    Buy whatever you can still find. They haven't made any BB10 phones for awhile, maybe two years or more...

    There are few deals on ebay India on OG pp at 220$ but all of the sellers quotes that the device will come with qwerty or azerty keyboard. That's y I m confused whether I should buy or not. They don't guarantee that it will be qwerty.

    etradesupply.com does have parts... you could swap out the keyboard if you want to invest in something like that.

    Get the classic or the og passport. I have had all bb10 phones with pkb and it's by far my favorite. Perfect form factor and toolbelt. It's like q10 on steroids.
    Sure it lacks the power that the passport has but makes it up in usability and build quality. I bought the new se at the same time and it has already started to screen lift and the backcover rattles and feels cheap compared to classic.

    Does the screen size of classic is same as q10 or is it bigger than q10?

    I preferred the Classic's form factor, but the Passport is much more capable. It's the fastest BB10 you will ever own.

    Skip BB10 and buy a KEYone. Either that or just move on. The more I read from people that still use BB10 in other threads, it seems like it's slowly being left to die. If you already have a BB10 device, keep using, but to buy one now is just wasting money you could spend on ANY next generation device from any OEM.
