Look and appearance:
Blackberry passport has a dimension of 128 x 90.3 x 9.3 mm (Height x Width x Thickness) wich weighs 194grams which seems to be a little bit heavier than normal smartphones.
Blackberry phones are more used at corporate companies and less used as a personal device.
Having said that this Blackberry Passport seems to be perfect for official use.
It has a pretty decent 4.5 inch sqaure display of 1440×1440 resolution which makes it really better for documents reading and editing on the go.
But because of this it really looks very bulky and less stylish.
