passport or priv - which would you buy and why?

Views: 744 Replies: 15
I am trying to decide which one to get. I currently have an Android phone. In the past I had a bb and I would like to go back. I strongly prefer having a pkb. I use Android apps and would like to be able to continue using them on my next phone. I would like to hear what you like and don't like about each phone.

PRIV... because of it's app support.

Passport is a two year old phone running an OS that has at the best a very questionable future.... and it's app support is based on a "hack" that is dependant on both the developer's support and Google uncaring.

That's my WHY for both... but I can see where anyone that isn't really much of an app user might be very happy with the Passport now and in the future.

    You want a PKBYou want a BlackBerryYou want Android Apps

Seems like the Priv is the obvious choice here.. Or the Rome but that won't be coming anytime soon.. So yeah Priv.

If the Priv and the Passport cost the same price (preferably below £400) I would take the Priv as it basically has a future running Android.

In my opinion, the Passport is the superior handset, but at this point, has been left in a noose, waiting to hang by BlackBerry.

Based on current pricing, I would still choose the Passport based on my preference for the BB10 OS.

My logical head says, going forward, the priv is the logical purchase choice.

Priv. Sadly, there's no future for BB10 so no future for passport. Great device, great OS, *** CEO

Personally, I am a BB10 guy, so my recommendation would be the passport. I am currently using a Q10 after a short tour of the iOS/Droid/Windows Phone world and am pretty content with it.

As far as droid phones go, there are better options than the Priv. I would really weigh whether a physical keyboard is worth going to an otherwise inferior handset.

Apps are the difference maker in your decision. If you need apps not available on bb10 then go priv otherwise the Passport is awesome.
