As a fan of BlackBerry and an owner of both the Classic and the Passport, I hate to say it but the Classic is garbage. The low res display makes text blurry and uncomfortable to read. The keypad, at least on mine, feels cheap and isn't lit equally (a few dim keys). The track pad doesn't sit straight on the toolbelt.. yup it's wonky! If these weren't an issue, then it would be an absolutely amazing device. WTF BB?! This is not the BB I remember, stop shooting yourself in the foot!!
what did i told you ! that make this a water proof..now YOTAPHONE 2 is coming... this will be garbage!
Is the battery better...had to replace 9720 battery 3 times and charging block 4 times in under 2 years. Need to upgrade and dont want a phone with touch screen keybord.

But, the fact that some Anonymous came here and talk bull... about BB does help in growing BB Classic popularity.
AnonD-353748, 04 Apr 2015Does dis phne hang like de otr blackberrys ??! Yes, provided you use a quality thread and tie it from a strong branch.
But, why would you want to hang a smartphone?
Anonymous, 13 Mar 2015if its not a water proof!!!! uselessWhy useless? do you live under the sea?
For those people asking if this unit is waterproof and always say this is useless.. why ask for waterproof? do you do all your thing under water? do you live under the sea or something? are both of your hands always soaked on water? Makes me think that people asking that question are fish or mermaids or something. Rant about the waterproof issue if your a fish or if you're living under the sea.

The one on the right is the speaker and the one on the left is the main microphone.
That is why you don't hear anything on the left "speaker".
Does classic user it have same problem with me?my classic speaker it just work one side n the other side is no sound.pls the suggest?!thx
Anonymous, 06 Apr 2015is this a good idea to go about with this phone....
Kindly suggestIt depends on your needs and and expectations: If you are a business person preoccupied for productivity, security and stability, yes BlackBerry is THE PHONE for you.
If you are looking for entertainment, better look in a different place.
Don't pay attention to people who only saw a BB on Youtube.
It is a very powerful terminal with an OS built especially for their hardware. That means: No crashes, Maximum Optimization and no Data Mining as Google does with Android and Market.
BB 10 OS does not require BIS aka APN BlackBerry to operate. It will run with any regular data plan.
Also BB 10 OS is able to run both Android and Windows Phone, that beside BB native apps.
I have mine since the beginning of this year and I am more than happy with it. Did not have any crash, freeze, lag, restart or any other bugs find in Android.
Just brought the Classic to replace my Q10. Not much different but a bigger screen. No regrets though as this is the executive business device whilst my iPhone 6 is a social phone.
Blackberry is stupid phone i have... Balckberry voice assistant is the one of stupid idea for blackberry... it make slow and not usable... i think blackberry bankrupt as soon as possible...
AnonD-353748, 04 Apr 2015Does dis phne hang like de otr blackberrys ??! What do you mean by "hang like other BB phones" ?!?!
P.S. - Please stop typing using Messenger slang!
Anonymous, 31 Mar 2015The battery on this phone last all day all night.
Really happy switching from iPhone.I am wonder how long should work proper battery in BlackBerry classic. I've got new one and battery works around 14 hours-80% of time not active. Is that normal or sth is wrong with this particular battery?
