AMT8, 25 Dec 2014Nothing special on this phone...only battery is better...camera same like q10. Prefer android ... moreExcept ability to download Android apps. If they work on BlackBerry phone, this could be a huge improvement.
Hi bb fan. I think that the bb surfing is no more already. bb 10 is already like the other smartphones which uses the networks freebies like smarts Free 999 internet or unlimited internet access. i already have a plan in smart and bought out of the box a blackberry z30 here at sm north edsa philippines and the z30 works very well no complains as of now very fast browser and very intuitive UI. I do not know about the service but the salesman told me that they have a service center around at makati area. hope i answer yyour question bb fan.
In the philippines, no network will carry blackberry. previous engagement of blackberry with smart and globe was not pleasant..they complained about stocks availability and replenshioment. they also complained about after sales service of blackberry..I hope they can win back globe and smart networks here in the philippines..im still using my bb bold..and i wanted amd waited for the q20, but how can make it work if no network will hook on it..no network is offering blackberry plan to manage the bb surfing
hey fellow Filipinos!
I want to know whether this phone be offered by globe or smart telecom? Do you have any update? Please let me know.
happy holiday Philippines!
Nothing special on this phone...only battery is better...camera same like q10. Prefer android smartphone
tomvern, 21 Dec 2014Android apps yes, but only apps available from the Amazon store (or the kindle fire store)Sideloading Snap is a great option, it's actually a Bar file so it's built for Blackberry. Once you sign in with your Google Play details it then loads apps from google play and you can choose any to download just as you would on android. Ofcourse not all apps will work but the majority do and I know that because it's what I use myself, Q10 to be exact.
Ive got my Q10 out of its box after 3 months or so and fired it up and updated it..Got most of my Android apps running on it..Really waiting for Classic now but its still due early Jan. If you ever read my comments i love real buttons and this Classic will do everything i need..
Waiting to see screen quality and brightness of Classic i find Q10 a bit dim.
Also battery life,,speaker quality,,earpiece quality and vid record and camera quality..All my BB's have had bright LED flash and therefore good torch,, Sony Z3C is really weak.
BB also brings LED notification light...
Yes I've got real buzz on for this smartphone and about time things have gone stale recently.Wish i could get it in white but easily sell black Classic and buy white one when it launches.

If you want BIS it will be dead slow.
The BlackBerry 10 web browser is up to 6 seconds faster than any mobile browser.

It makes more sense if the battery will be improved because BB classic is for people who often make calls, emails, instant message, and browse webs.
Anonymous, 23 Dec 2014what happened to the bis feature these blackberry's of the have lost thier touch .A blackberry... moreYes! U are damn right. Or at least the phones should come in two different flavours, BIS and normal data and they should watch out which one will sell faster. They 4get to know dat we live in a world were data plans are crazily costly dan BIS plans. Pls BB take note if u need more sales from the everyday average man. Thank You Mr CEO BB.
what happened to the bis feature these blackberry's of the have lost thier touch .A blackberry without bis is just an ordinary smartphone whats makes it outstnding mmm?
Steak Man, 22 Dec 2014It's not always about the size of battery or thickness of the phone. Look at Xperia Z3 Compact... moreDon't we all want the perfect phone? While agreeing that Sony did a commendable job on Z3, it still has got it's own limitations. True QWERTY lovers has little use of a full touch. But yeah, let us hope BlackBerry may come up with a higher 'spec'ed, lighter and tougher QWERTY and full touch phones.
Personally I would love a water-resistant Classic with a better camera.
Jasmeet , 22 Dec 2014Once a blackberry, always a blackberry. The classic model is a masterpiece. Lol.....sure, wtv u say.
