What qualities of a Smart Phone do you need to name it a Perfect Travel companion? Is it battery power? Front and rear camera? LTE capable? Email handling? Social media friendly?
Here’s my review of the all new BlackBerry Passport and why i call it a perfect companion.
The BlackBerry Passport comes with a whopping 3450Mah battery which gives a various of choices on how to use it wisely and effectively.
During the #blackberrypassportphtest i have really tried in different scenarios. For this option, it gave me 24 to 30 hours battery life. Meaning, after using it for a day, sleeping and upon waking up, there is still battery in the phone. So if you are a traveller hopping from one office to another, this is a pretty good battery life. You will be able to recharge as soon as you get back to your domicile.
Leaving at 8am with a series of events that i attended, going home around 10pm, it still has 12% battery and totally drained after 2 hours. So this is roughly 14 to 16 hours. Still not bad if you are on the road most of the time.
On 4G LTE Network
After getting my LTE Nano sim from Globe, i was able to take it to a further #blackberrypassportphtest now with a #globeltenanosim and the experience was different. I was able to post faster and was even able to download photos, share videos and images faster as well. The life of the battery was around 10 to 12 hours. Please note i am a social media fanatic and posting on fb, twitter and checking my emails as well.
On shared mobile hotspot
Using 4G and sharing my internet to 8 users was actually very useful especially when my home internet went down during the Christmas and New Year. It was able to connect all 8 devices successfully and had no problems using them individually when they are in youtube, file sharing, spotify, or viber.
The 4G LTE signal reception
Out of all the units i presently tested for 4G, this phone the Blackberry Passport is outstanding! At my place in the condo, where i live on the 11th floor, it is very hard to get a descent signal reception. But i was amazed that this phone, the #blackberrypassportphtest was able to get a 4G LTE signal! This never happened with the Alcatel Pop S3 and the LG G3 and also my portable wifi hotspot.
The voice reception
If you have never heard or experienced a noise reduction on a mobile phone, better try this out. The BlackBerry Passport gives you a crisp, boosted audio-quality that is like hearing an operator talk from a callcenter grade headset.
This is part 1 of my full review. Part 2 will uncover photos and videos taken by the Passport.
I will share the other reasons why it’s a perfect mate for travel. Please allow me some time to download from the phone so i can upload it on the web.
