CrackBerry Asks: BlackBerry Passport vs. BlackBerry Classic - Which do you prefer?

By Bla1ze on 23 Jun 2014 12:04 pm EDT

Now that it has been a few days and folks have had some time to gather up all the available details about the BlackBerry Passport and the BlackBerry Classic, we figured we'd put up a poll to see where each device stands in terms of love from BlackBerry fans.

On one hand the BlackBerry Passport is a new style from BlackBerry and many people after having seen the real deal have changed their thoughts on it. On the other hand, the BlackBerry Classic looks like an an aggressive revamp of the much loved Bold line and has won many people over based on that alone.

So, which do you prefer? Passport? Classic? Let us know in the poll or drop your thoughts on both devices in the comments. We'll do a follow up after a day or so and let everyone know which device came out on top!



Looking forward to trying BOTH, but honestly more inclined to the Passport as the Classic is more for those who are still on Legacy OS devices as an easier way to get them to upgrade to BB10.


Passport is new and fresh, Classic isn't quite as exciting to me as it looks too "classic"

Thank you! My sentiments exactly.

If the classic had the same keyboard stay as the q10 then I would like it, but it looks very unattractive as of right now.


Uh, it does, you're thinking about the Passport...

Hey man, you should replace the steering wheel in your car with a touchscreen display, same with your accelerator and brake pedals. I mean, that steering wheel has been the steering method since the 19th century. Stop living in the past dude. Newer is always better right? We should have stayed with the new Coke formula too, the Coca-Cola Classic is just so... classic, and not exciting...

The Classic has the cool 9000 look to it. I'm sure it has its own fans.

No, the Classic is more for those who want the convenience of getting everyday things done more efficiently. That's why I plan to get it (as long as the specs are OK) coming from a Q10...

But yes, the Passport is a more "intriguing" device. But I'll let you folks be the guinea pigs for that 3-row keyboard that basically rearranges the bottom row of keys to accommodate the space bar...

What if you can get one for free. Which one would you pick?

Using Z10, wanting Z30, eyeing Windermere


I'd have to ask someone who has got something I need so we could trade... Lol

Seriously though, I think the Passport is so bizarre I would switch platforms if it was the only BB phone available.


Are you serious?! Even if it was given to you for free?

Well that's just not smart on your part, as you could easily sell it and then get whatever you wanted! ;)

I'm holding judgment on the Passport till I can see it with my own two eyes. But I've definitely written the "Classic " off. IMO, it's BlackBerry's attempt to sway BBOS users on BB10, which only further fuels the perception that BlackBerry isn't innovative in their handset design. You want BBOS users to come to BB10, advertise your shit! Provide ample learning resources, so when someone does acquire a BB10 device they don't feel lost! Get these two points straightened out and BB10 adoption rate will be just fine.

Posted via CB10


Bit will you be able to see it with your own eyes as they probably won't be selling it in the shops!!

I say keep the all touch stuff coming. I don't need or want a physical keyboard or a phablet.

I guess they didn't include neither on the poll because anything that is considered negative against BlackBerry is usually deleted SMH


I agree. "Neither" should be on option.

The M8 is a brilliant phone. I'm a neither on this poll too. There should be a "yawn" button!

Would love to see an all-touch with a discrete trackpad.

It would be cool if the trackpad was almost "invisible" and just sat in the bezel. Don't need the full "toolbelt", but a stylish, discrete trackpad would be cool. Something that wouldn't take away from the elegance of a full touch design.

I have also suggested this... would be nice, and a good competetive feature to other full touch devices in the marked.

Posted via CB10


Yeah, all touch for me too. I tried to vote but just couldn't. Although a track pad on an upgraded Z10 (32GB minimum) would be cool.

Don't get me wrong, keyboard is great for those who want one. I just want the largest screen I can comfortably put in my front pant pocket.

Apparently the physical keys are touch sensitive, meaning swipe gestures are possible which is awesome. Also rumor has it double tapping the keys turns the keyboard Into a trackpad, ie brings up a cursor on the screen. Sounds pretty cool.

Didn't the Motorola Droid get lambasted over its touch sensitive physical keyboard? Bad call, BlackBerry. I tried the Droid's keyboard, and it was awful, in my opinion. I would not want a touch sensitive physical keyboard.

The only thing that interests me in the Classic is the trackpad.

Posted via CB10 on Z10


Well the Passport has a trackpad as well it's just integrated into the keyboard. The question is how well does it work in practice vs. the dedicated trackpad on the Classic?


I like the Classic because it small enough to fit in my hand. I have a small hand. The Passport is too big for my hand plus I don't really like boxy type of design.

You know what they say about men with small hands. Lol

I like that the passport is huge that means only real men can use it with real man hands of proportionally large hands.

The passport of course. Not sure if it will be the greatest device of all time, but it's definitely a very innovative product from BlackBerry, even though we don't really know too much about how it works yet. This is definitely a ballsy move, and I would do everything I can to support it. I'll definitely be getting it when it launches in Toronto and I've even convinced a few friends to try it out. I sincerely hope this device changes the perspective everyone's got on BlackBerry. The classic seems to be a good phone too, but it will always have that familiar feeling to it, not something as insanely fresh as the passport. Still should be a good device though

Passport fulfills my need for keypad and larger screen. And most importantly it has gesture based keypad, which is innovative. The look also sophisticated.

I've seen a Passport in real life and the current leaked pics do not do it justice. Very classy and substantial.

Posted via CB10


Did you happen to see any keyboard gestures?


All touch screens for me. I love the viewing real estate. so neither.


Biggest blunder by BB/TAT was removing the optical mouse (OM). Give me a big screen and OM.
So I guess Classic is close.

I have no idea if the Passport is going to work, without knowing more about the keyboard -- none of us does. But I love the fact that BB is trying something new and different. It shows a willingness to experiment, to be creative, to innovate, that the company sorely needs.


I hope there's an unlocked passport

Looking forward to upgrading to the classic from my Z10. Passport is to big and square for a phone.

Posted via CB10


I loved both & equally mummy and daddy ! Same applies here :)
Maybe classic for lightweight usage and "dinner in town" and passport for heavy duty and daily driver ...
Only concern : I still love the Z30 keyboard (uh, yes, even against Q10) ... will I switch back to physical ?


Where's the neither option? I'm hoping for a touchscreen like the Z10 / Z30

~Z10 Baby~


Strange, isn't it? Before John Chen showed the Passport off, many, myself included thought 'Damn, that is one hideous device.... What were they thinking'. Now, all i'm thinking is when can I get one for myself!? I have a Z30, love it, but this Passport device looks... magnificent.


Ditto! When I first saw the pictures, I was like,"It should have rounded edges." Then when I saw it in his hand, I felt like,"Oh that's not bad. Not bad @ all. Hmmm?"

BBW Lovers Unite- OOLONG. The Eye of The OOLONG :C00121B8B


That happened on every bb10 device when the grainy pictures & slides leaked. Nothing new, at this point the concept is boring now. "It's ugly, it's hideous, what are they thinking I wouldn't by that thing". Then once real pictures come out everyone changes their tune. It happened on every bb10 device so far.

Z30 is by far the best offering. This said, Passport looks like it will be worthy of a test drive.

I hate the classic. It looks like every other old blackberry device. It's time to move on blackberry. Let the bold line of smartphones die.

Posted via CB10


I think you missed the point on what the 'Classic' is


Give me a break. If you hate it then cool. But there's vast numbers who would disagree with you, hence the reason they came out with the Classic. It's a proven design, and it works. It's in DEMAND.


Let's wait and see if these "vast numbers" of people actually buy a Classic first shall we before declaring that it's going to be BlackBerry's saviour.

The tool belt design was near essential to operating a legacy BBOS phone because BlackBerry chose to retrofit touch screen capability to their phone range and didn't do a great job of it.

Whether the tool belt is as useful on a BB10 phone will depend entirely on how well BlackBerry have retrofitted it in to the UI of an OS that was designed to make it redundant. No small task, and not a strong history of getting it right first time.

I'm intrigued by the Passport. I've always used all touch devices and only recently switched to Blackberry with the Z10. Lovin' it by the way. I've always wanted to try out a physical keyboard, but I'd like to reserve judgement until I've had a chance to hold the Passport in my hand. I'm generally not a fan of large phones though (which is why I chose the Z10 over the Z30), so I'm not optimistic.


I've slowly come to love the Passport. Can't wait to get one!

Passport hands down. When people see the Classic they will just say, "oh, it's a BlackBerry ..." When they see the passport they will say "Oh! What is that? Wow that looks like some kind of better than BlackBerry oh wow it IS a BlackBerry."

Well, actually, I don not care what other people say, because I have to carry and use the device all the time!

QUESTION: I'm a strong BB10 supporter and Z10 owner, but I'm having a difficult time understanding the market need for a device like the Passport. Who is BlackBerry trying to target with this device?

I'm holding out hope that BlackBerry can produce a high-end model reminiscent of the new LG G3 or HTC One M8.


Power qwerty users, corporate / business types and hardcore BlackBerry fans who want something new. Seems like a good strategy.

Sent from my Z10. Or was it my Q10? Either way, it was sent from an awesome phone.


Classic, but seems to be a little bit bigger than the Q10, what is not good, I prefer small devices.

Anyway, I still hope for a compact portrait slider with BB10, what is my most favored design!


As long as the 3.5 inch screen can adequately browse and watch youtube, it's the classic for me

Unless it's the passport


This is a question I have been asking myself for a while now!

My first thought was passport looks dumb.... but the the more I look at the more is start to like it. Maybe because it is just different from anything else. But I won't give up my Z30 for it just yet.

A little of both for me. Like the size of the classic, but don't need the tool belt. Really intrigued by the capacitive keyboard of the passport, but don't want a huge phone. Update the Q10, with better specs, and make the existing keyboard capacitive as well, and I'll be the 1st in line, for now, I'll have to wait and see.


My main language is German - the Trackpad was a big help when typing with umlauts - for me that's a killer reason for the Classic. I'm no friend of big phones either.

Even as a die hard Bold form factor guy, seeing that 1440 screen with keys is Wow. Can't wait to at least try it out and test the keyboard gestures


Passport by far.
I don't like the classic, the Q10 for me is the best looking blackberry ever.

Passport Passport Passport! It's the future in qwerty phones. Huge screen with simple keyboard. No shift or alt keys. Touch sensitive gestures to delete, pull up symbols, caps, numbers and punctuation. it will definitely turn heads and spark curiosity.

BlackBerry 4Life


Personally, I feel like the the capacitive keyboard experience is going to rival the Z30 touch keyboard experience. Maybe not 'flicking', but, swipe back to delete and many of the other gestures, of which I don't know of. I have a Q10. :-D

I prefer the classic. I found that I never used the "flick" function on my Z10, so I imagine I won't enjoy using the gestures that replaces the "alt" and "shift" keys of the Q10. Also, no "0" and "$" symbols.

If I were choosing between one or the other it would be the Classic. It's not that the Passport holds no interest for me but I'd never be able to use it to its full potential. I'm far more intrigued by the Passport though, if that makes any sense.



Classic caters for the elederly....



Though the Mr. Chen video has seriously improved my perception of the Passport (I went from fugly to neutral), the jury is still out until I touch one in person. I'm wondering how battery life will be with the Passport as well as the keyboard interaction. I still need a swappable battery. I don't know if the Classic will have one either but it sure better or I won't be interested in it at all. I'll wait until they get full on reviews and read some early adopter feedback first but I'm leaning towards the Classic.


Z50 would be my first choice by the passport looks interesting.


It's no doubt that the Passport has caused a stir on the CrackBerry forums as well as the "outer world".

This is exactly what BlackBerry needs, to show everyone they're still alive and swinging. Let's hope this momentum carries forward. Passport is my choice.

I'm going to get the Classic although I concede that the Passport is definitely the more exciting device imho. I just like the overall package of the classic. If the Passport also had the tool belt, I'd probably go for that instead, even though it sounds like the Passport will have some cool gesture control through the keyboard. But I'll try both before deciding. While the Classic's shape is close to the 9000/9900/Q10, it looks slightly more rectangular - I wish they kept the same shape, but it's close, and a small detail that's not too important in the big picture, I guess.


I prefer the passport.

Passport. As a longtime PKB fan, I purchased a Q10 as soon as it became available through my carrier. Because they (ATT) provided no OS updates, I loaded leaks beginning on 11/13. Not sure if I would have stayed with BlackBerry if I did not load leaks. 10.1.xxx sucked.

Was excited about Q30 initially and remain so. Bring it on Mr. Chen. Passport looks amazing both physically and conceptually. Please provide a removable battery however. I do not want a phone that needs to be sent back for a battery change.

From my z30


In white.
It's mine.


Yes, with white keys that would look nice!

I prefer the passport, but I like a full touch screen

When is the Z50 coming out?

Agreed...how long will we be waiting for this?

On tech site, often the LG optimus Vu is cited as a copycat of the passport (or the other way around), with the difference being the keyboard on top. And honestly, yes, it does look like it but the keyboard makes so much better though, can't wait to put my hands on this one after the summer...


I prefer the passport, he has class with a big screen! innovative touches! The design is different from all other smartphones!


Like the bigger screen on the Passport. Looking forward to what new things that keyboard can do!


Had a 'tool belt' on Bold 9000, had it on Bold 9900, never missed it with Q10 and have no desire to go back that road.

Passport on the other hand ... I can't wait September!

CLASSIC all the way. Stylish and retro with the best operating system, can't go wrong with that!!!

I can't wait for CrackBerry to do a hands on review of the passport. I like it, but I have my concerns and just can't wait to read all you guys have to say!

I'm very excited every time BlackBerry pulls out a new device, well I confess I'd collect them all. That said, I really believe there is no need for the legendary Trackball (which have become a Trackpad) anymore. It now just steals room to the need of a bigger display. To me the Q10 phone's concept is the perfect new bold vision, fact that most people are addicted to Trackpad for ease of use, goes along side with people not loving touch displays that much therefore still "compelled" to BlackBerry old style.

New keyboard-touch BlackBerry devices should be, as they are now, compelled to the 1 to 3 proportion of the entire device. Plus landscape mode can be almost forgotten then, and this looks like a step backward to me.

I'm a BlackBerry 10 lover who believes that bigger screens are always better then small ones as does believe that after 5 models like z10, z30, Q5, Q10 and Z3 BlackBerry should focus on more powerful cameras, more profitable cooperations in terms of services (i.e. touchless paying), implementation of mapping and gas. Bit it looks like BlackBerry is forced to produce to ease the continuous money loss.

That said, I prefer the passport to te classic but I also find my z10's keyboard way better than the physical one.

Love BlackBerry, but to be honest, it needs a blast of fresh air on thinking, acting, producing, in 2 words: on command.

 does it better!


Respectfully, I disagree with everything you said about the removal of the trackpad. This is the epitome of the BlackBerry experience, and they should always offer a current keyboard device which has one (like the Classic). I really hope BlackBerry doesn't listen to people like you when it comes to keyboard devices.

The passport has a tool belt but it is a virtual one.

The Passport is the one. Grabbing two at launch :)

I choose both. I love the Passport look- but I will like to see a little more of the classic before I can make a good decision. But, overall the look of the Passport got me wanting one!


How about neither? Still waiting on Z10 replacement, high end touch screen device....Doesn't seem like they are producing one anytime soon. Very disappointing .....options?? Android or windows phones...not a fan but being left with little choice it seems.

The Z30 is now 9 months old. I don't consider that a leading edge option anymore.

Want a glimpse of the new 10.3 OS? Change your wallpaper to plain black, and the black borders around the apps will disappear! Just figured that out. Looks neat

Classic! Although I love my Z10!!!

Passport, I have a q10 and i miss having a bigger screen.

Posted via Q10


Passport. It will take you places. ;)

Posted via CB10 on the Zed Ten


Would buy the Classic today if it was available, Passport is too big for a phone.


Samsung, Sony, HTC and apparently apple among many other phone manufacturers would probably disagree with that last statement. Passport fits in a shirt pocket fine.

Sent from my Z10. Or was it my Q10? Either way, it was sent from an awesome phone.


Drop the keyboard and make it a full screen - then it will be great.

Bold and Audacious is cup of tea. Have to get my Passport. :)
