Actually I find that the Classic on Skype is pleasently a great seamless experience. The front camera on the Classic is good but despite the lower resolution on the 5s, the 5s just seems clearer and brighter, but the Classic does the job. The official Skype app can be added via the Amazon App Store. The huge advantage of the Classic over the iPhone or any touchscreen phone, is being able to use the physical keyboard on Skype. Also I note that file transfers on Blackberry are always easier and have more options than on Android or iOS. One odd thing about Skype on all OS's, is that when you leave Skype, it has a weird habit of restarting when you come back to it when multitasking. Skype on Android and on iOS is smoother for sure, but on Blackberry it runs great too
Will the free apps from Google Play still be free in Amazon AppStore? and will all apps available on Google Play will also be available in Amazon AppStore?
I currently have an iPhone 5s and I really want to switch over to the Blackberry Classic. My only concern with the classic is the camera. I need a camera for work purposes (and the front facing camera for Skype calls as well), and I'm not sure if the quality would be good enough. To those of you who currently have this phone, do you think that both the front and back facing cameras are up to par?
So which phone are you talking about? These are not problems on all the phones you mentioned. I have had blackberries for years and had no trouble at all. Buy guess is that you are using the memory up to the limit so that it cannot cope with new messages and is desperately trying to to do its best by shifting stuff around. Check your memory usage in the settings. Do you have a SIM card? Have you set all the apps to save and read from the SIM card and not the phone? Have you deleted inessential apps to make more room for the stuff you want. If you have a bad phone I commiserate but this is not the blackberry experience for almost everyone else. The Classic is just the best phone out there.

Purely Business and Premium class phone. We don't play games all the day so blackberry is just a perfect blend of absolute quality with good amount of entertainment. I would suggest you to go with the mighty BlackBerry Classic.

After switching from a BB to a Android Nexus 3 years I made the switch back to BB 1 year ago and chose the Classic over the Passport only because of the device size as it fits comfortable in my hand and with the wave of my thumb I can do nearly anything I want to do with apps. I love the battery life, the stability of the BB10 OS but what I really love is that this phone is so solid as my productivity tool that I use day in and day out I no longer have to worry about OS or app issues as I did on my Nexus. I use it as a phone, mobile hotspot and with Bridge my Pebble time steel smartwatch is a natural extension of the phone. Plus for the boo birds out there I have the Android apps I need with the Google Play store installed so I have the best of both worlds on this device.
The BB eco system is also beyond compare as far as I am concerned as I use BB Blend throughout the day and as a result my BB Classis is the hub for all of my communication needs weather business or personal.
If I want to play games or otherwise kill some time I have a Nexus 7 tablet for that sort of thing, but for getting stuff done day in and day out my BB Classic rocks.
