Cheap alternatives for BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition

Design

1.weight

196g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.thickness

9.3mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.height

128mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.width

90.3mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.has a physical QWERTY keyboard
BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition
Text messaging is much faster due to a hardware keyboard.

Display

1.pixel density

453ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
2.resolution

1440 x 1440px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
3.screen size

4.5"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has branded damage-resistant glass
BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
5.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
6.has an IPS screen
BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.

Performance

1.CPU speed

4 x 2.3GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.RAM

3GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
3.has an external memory slot
BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
4.internal storage

32GB

The internal storage, also called read-only memory (ROM), refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
5.Has integrated LTE
BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition (Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 MSM8974AA v3)
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.
6.semiconductor size
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.

Cameras

1.megapixels (main camera)

13MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
2.megapixels (front camera)

2MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
3.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 60fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
4.has a built-in HDR mode
BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition (BlackBerry 10.1)
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
5.has a flash
BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
6.has a front camera
BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.

Audio

1.has stereo speakers
BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
3.Has a radio
BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition
A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.
4.number of microphones

3

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

Battery

1.battery power

3450mAh

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
2.has a battery level indicator
BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
3.has a rechargeable battery
BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

1.download speed

The download speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can access online content.
2.has NFC
BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition (BlackBerry 10.1)
NFC (near-field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions.
3.is DLNA-certified
BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition
All DLNA-certified products are compatible with one another. When different devices are connected to the same network, data can be transferred easily between them.
4.Bluetooth version
