SM, 21 Oct 2015I heard about this phone, but I heard about one thing that I am much concerned of: browser whi... moreHey morning, actually the browser. It can feel "clunky" which I can say the same for the iPhone safari browser, it is not smooth feeling like the Android GS6 browser. That being said, the Blackberry browser is incredibly powerful and can handle everything. With me I use MANY browser tabs at a time. I find that Safari and Chrome cant handle as many tabs and either crash or refresh the browser and the tabs. I find that the Blackberry browser handles multiple tabs fairly well! Another cool thing, something somewhat basic, but yet not an option for many, is YouTube on the browser. You can load youtube, play video on the browser, say you are working out, you load a music video and you just want to hear the song, you lock your phone, video continues to play on youtube in the background, no extra apps needed, plus downloading videos is just as simple as it is on Chrome on Android
I heard about this phone, but I heard about one thing that I am much concerned of: browser which is so slow....would any of you tell me about this? Would you recommend it to someone who wants to check news constantly?
zacedy, 20 Oct 2015is there any lag when using it?Surprisingly no. I compare it to the Samsung Galaxy S6 and iPhone 5s on iOS 8.4 (which runs smoother than the Phone 6), It truly is multi tasking at its best. I do notice a small delay when swiping screens. Like if I swipe rightthere is like a nano-second of delay. GS6 and iPhone much faster of course but BB rocks, no lags no freeze either and even the browser can handle everything
everything is great , one thing. why is this rocking SD S4 plus? i have many social apps that is heavy enough to runs with.. I don't want to spent more money to get the passport just for looking the performance upgrade.. dayum
BlackBerry Classic is amazing..Size, appearance, hardware and OS perfect. Keeps you going IF you are a business person. Simply a SMART phone for SMART people... If you're not SMART enough, go for Droid.
I'll stick with this. No issues if you know how to use it. PERIOD!
BlackBerry classic is best for communication. Don't buy if you are crazy in games. Feel it! You love it.
I think blackberry has the best screen for reading in sunlight. Besides blackberry I have samsung note 4 which is great for S pen features and a great camera but reading in sunlight is very difficult. Setting the brightness to max gives little help but surely not even close to blackberry.
I bought this phone 2 months ago. I am very pleased with the operating system. Although I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab S and I worked on Android, the BB is much better.
First of all, I can send and receive emails very easy from Yahoo, Gmail and dedicated servers.
You can write an email very easy and attach everything.
The text editing software included is very easy to handle and you can write a text almost as in Microsoft Office Word (you can see formating options of the text).
In the case of Blackberry, the fear is related to the apps. Now, I will write a list with the apps instaled in my phone:
Blackberry World-dedicated blackberry apps.
appstore-apps free from amazon (here you find much more apps than in Bworld)
docs to go, remember, facebook, twitter, linkedln, calculator, evernote, adobe reader, youtube, box, dropbox, whatsapp, blackberry travel, accuweather, wikipedia, fancytran, corky notes, skype, teamviewer, pinterest, candy crush saga, candy crush soda, waze, booking.com, tripscanz, shazam, viber, temple run2, temple run, easy unrar lite.
I use these apps frequently.
The battery is ok, all day long with internet conection active.
Ok, the camera is not as good as a Samsung Galaxy (A5, S3, etc). But you can manage also with BB.
The texting is very easy.
Until now (after 2 months) I didn't find something bad about this phone (ok, I can add here the camera which is medium, but this is a business phone).

Anonymous, 07 Oct 2015My friends ... give me information about black berry You have all the infos that you need and specs on this BlackBerry Classic dedicated page.
What do you wanna know? The Classic it's a proper BlackBerry phone. If you don't know what a BlackBerry is and what a BlackBerry can do, then don't buy one!
I've been a heavy Apple user for the last 6 years, and while I have nothing but good things to say about Apple, I found that I missed the simplicity and elegance of Blackberry (as well as physical controls), so I decided to give them another shot, and I'm very pleased with this device. Yes, the hardware isn't state-of-the-art, nor is the app selection very large, but I'm in it for the durability and productivity; it's comfortable knowing that my phone won't disintegrate if dropped from an altitude of more than 3 inches. Average battery life is easily 1.5 days, for moderate, mixed use, and over 1 day for heavy use. I would highly recommend this device to those who seek a different mobile experience, and who don't live vicariously through their mobile devices. Blackberry is for getting the job done, and getting back to living life.
