    Currently have a Z10 and have been eyeing the Z30 for awhile mainly for the speaker and sound quality, battery life and paratek antenna.

    Passport owners who upgraded from the Z30: how would you compare battery life and sound quality of the Z30 to the Passport?

    Now Im still torn between all-touch and screen real estate vs physical keyboard.

    Speakers are at least 1.5 times better

    Battery seems to be the same although if you include the extra getting to know the device time and playing with this and that it may well be better once the usage gets back to the same as when used the Z30

    I'm actually getting better battery life, and the sound is great, and it's a power house.

    I moved from a Z30 (which I still really like) to a Passport on Launch Day.

    I've been a BlackBerry customer since about 2003 time frame (I had a 7100v from Vodafone UK). I have one of each of the BB10 devices (Z10, Q10, Z30) .

    I was really surprised by the ease of use of the Passport and the super-clear call quality (especially BBM voice calls, for example). I find that I really like the keyboard shortcuts that I had on the Q10 (T for Top , B for Bottom) etc.

    The screen real estate on the Passport took some getting used to, to be honest. I liked the long/large format of the Z30 screen but I'm growing very fond of the wider Passport screen. It's the keyboard which is making me happiest- that and the audio which is super.

    Same as others. Moved from a Z30. Taking some getting used to the PP but I will say I love the huge square screen. This is a seriously professional device which I use for my business. Loved the Z30 but the PP is a big step up. Really!!

    I've had all the BB10 phones and the Passport is my favorite. I did like the Z30 a lot, but the speed of the Passport and the physical keyboard is great. In my experience it runs android apps much much faster and you get a super sharp screen. All these extras with similar to better battery life, it was a no brainer for me. I wouldn't have bothered to write this post on Z30, too much typing.

    Moved from z30 to passport Friday. Wicked screen, solid build quality,nice camer, and faster android apps which are all upgrades from the z30. The phone definitely needs to be handled with two hands to type and get to certain areas on the screen and I'm still on the fence about which I like more.....its tough because they are both solid phones that deliver the bb10 experience. Haven't had it long enough to judge battery life and will keep an update after a weeks use in real situations....only used this weekend so far.
    Ps everyone who sees it asks what the heck is that phone and I get to discuss bb10 with them for a few seconds because of it, when before they didn't care to ask about my z10 or z30 for that matter !
    Enjoy! Hope this helped

    Passport is a big upgraded from the Z30 in my opinion. Love the screen speakers keyboard and the battery life is amazing!
