    I was playing with the settings on my Passport and have set the font size to 8.

    Text in the hub is nice and chunky without stretching the Hub or encroaching on the boundaries unduly.

    I forget what the default setting was, and I'm not inclined to do a restore to find out, but I was just curious to know how other passport owners are doing it:
    1) with 1440 x 1440 resolution 450ish DPI, i'm going to use every pixel effectively so I'm using tiny ultra-sharp text
    2) that 450 DPI really makes for paper-like presentation, so I want a relaxed at-a-glance experience with a larger typeface that looks great with that super high DPI.

    The font size "8" suits me well... have you played around with the font size settings, are are you an "accept the defaults" kind of CrackBerrian?

    So far, I keep switching back and forth between 8 and 9.

    Been defaulting to 7 allows for even more reading space on that beautiful display

    I tried that too.... I can read it if I take my glasses off but it certainly is "work" compared to 8... but I notice that with 5, many user interface elements don't shrink any more than at 8, so the benefits shrinking the text don't seem to have a significant payoff: with point size 5, in the main settings, airplane mode at the top, BlackBerry Assistant is the last visible settings category, but at 8, that is still the case

    I have been using 5 since I had a Storm. Might change eventually but happy so far.

    6... the same as Q10.
    I thought I had to set "7", but the screen is so crisp that 6 is not at all small.

    Size 5 for me.
    The default setting is 8.

    I am with Bla1ze and the others on having as much content as possible on the screen.
    Sometimes I switch higher, but that rarely happens....

    Changed the size to 7 today after having used 8 for four months now. Like this size by far most!

    I was in a rogers store and the phone had it set to 11. Huge! I switched it to 8 for a better demo.

    I find 7 to be optimal for readability and screen space.

    Yes, 7 is optimal-ish. I think 6.5 or so would be better but.. oh well
