Uncledaddy, 22 Apr 2015I think it is unfortunate that BB went with the exact same processor and camera specs as is in... moreAs I said in my previous comment, BB OS is design for their hardware and that helps a lot.
If Classic is to outdated for your demands, you may go for Passport and soon BlavkBerry Oslo will be on.

Blackberry OS is an operating system especially create for their hardware. That means: no lags, no bugs, no crash, no freeze, no bloatware, no data mining.
BB OS also means: security, stability, optimization, performance and BB 10 OS is able to run Android apps.
How can a business person say that he has a lollipop or jelly as his companion, wiyhout blushing?!?!?
I think it is unfortunate that BB went with the exact same processor and camera specs as is in my current galaxy s3 that I got over 2 years ago. I was excited about this phone until I saw that. To get back on top, Blackberry needs to give people something more worthwhile than 3 year outdated processors and cameras. They need something that excites people the way bbm brought people to blackberry in droves.
Android is not only games but for business too. Email tool nothing better than Gmail. Web browsing chrome is no1. Blackberry no where. Slow slugish and crap operating system of blackberry leads it in no future zone.
AnonD-98457, 22 Apr 2015Can anyone share experience of classic about heating, is there also heating problem? Like z10.... moreAll mobile phones are heating more or less when are conected to internet or charging battery.
Classic is no exception to that. It does heat a bit when you are using it to surf the web via mobile data connexion.
Mine is not heating when it's connected via WiFi, only on mobile network data.
I don't know how much does your Z is heating, because I do not own a Z for a comparison.
Can anyone share experience of classic about heating, is there also heating problem? Like z10.
I'm using z10 from last 10 month and its heats up too much compare to any other devices.
Please please reply.
Anonymous, 17 Apr 2015Boring even not a business phoneWhat do you mean not even a business phone. Unfortunately I moved to a Samsung S5 because in Australia Blackberry has such little support, and for costs reasons. I can say the Android experience is terrible compared to the Blackberry OS. Ok the hardware is excellent but the Android OS is bloated and unresponsive. If you are big on emails, texting, recording information, viewing docs, simple things like copy and paste, then the BB OS is far superior. The Blackberry hub feature leaves Android for dead. Oh and the web brouser is better in my opinion. Android is good for games and thats about it. I dont use facebook (dangerous) or any of that rubbish, or play games. As a business tool there is no doubt the BB is superior. The amount of junk on the Samsung OS is amasing. The Gmail app is just so far behind the BB. I will have to change back to BB later.

simon, 18 Apr 2015Yes the left speakers do not function in BlackBerry classic phone. hii....the left vent at the bottom is not speaker its just a microphone, it has got only one speaker(the one on the right)
mex, 17 Apr 2015to be sincere Q10 is better than this phoneQ10 and Classic share the same hardware and software, but the Classic has more quality materials, finishing touches and more attention to details.
Q10 is more like a low budget BB. In my country you can buy a new Q10 with in 200 euros max, contract free.
