According to the Wall Street Journal, “survey after survey reveals there is one thing consumers wish manufacturers would change about their gadgets. And year after year, gadget makers make only tepid gestures toward giving it to us.
“It’s better battery life.”
The current trend from smartphone manufacturers has been to focus on thinner, lighter devices rather than battery power. What if there was a smartphone manufacturer that focused on as much the ergonomic design as they did battery life?
Fortunately, there is and they have made one of the best power user smartphones currently available.
The BlackBerry Passport is only a few millimeters thicker than the likes of flagship devices such as the iPhone 6 Plus or Note 4. But, the Passport is packing a whopping 3450 mAh battery.
Despite the Passport’s large 4.5-inch 1440×1440 IPS LCD display and touch-enabled keyboard, the battery will keep you going for the entire day – if not days!
When attempting to use as a daily driver, the iPhone 6 Plus, Note 4, LG G3, and OnePlus One never lasted me an entire day of emailing, BBMing, phone calling, Candy Crushing, Monument Valley’ing and more.
As evident in the screenshot above, the Passport has offered me an incredibly long-lasting battery life. 24 hours that day. This allows for a perfect blend of work and play with a little left over.
Never before have I ever experienced a smartphone whose battery life could keep up with my absurd smartphone using lifestyle. The only time I’m not on my phone is when I’m sleeping – and even then I am probably dreaming about using it.
With the recent OS 10.3.1 update, the battery life has only gotten better on the Passport. The same can also be said about other BB10 smartphones. Battery life improvements were made an important aspect of the BlackBerry 10 update.
BlackBerry has really outdone themselves with the BlackBerry Passport. If you’re a power user, you should seriously consider the Passport as a workhorse for getting things done. You won’t regret it.
