I think bb priced it right, instead of being seen as cheap phones. But at that price the quality has to be maintained as an iphone or high end galaxy does. I think classic does that in its own way. It is not a fun device, but a "business device with a bit of fun". Thats what i am looking for.

It all boils down to preferences and satisfaction.

Wha... moreI think the main reason why BlackBerry terminal aren't so popular is the fact that people see them as "difficult phones" to work with them, and many people still think that you will need BIS for them.
Do you remember a few years ago when, in terms of mobile phones, 9 ouț of 10 people saw Nokia as "the only phone"? Today same 9 ouț of 10, when it comes about smartphone they will go with Samsung or iPhone...

Also very high price. But customer service was really awesome, also the only smart phone we can see clearly even in sunlight, without giving shade with our hands.
why people don't take interest in this phone.Blackberry phones are nowhere in top ranking. What wrong with blackberry. First passport and now this classic is flopped. Why because of high price or these phones do not fit the needs of business. Blackberry should reconsider their strategy.
Best phone I have used from the BB stable. Though it may be slower, its the best smartphone I think anyone can own in the market, best looking and it means business...The best keypad, best battery life & am loving it

Though choosing bet. the 2 freebies I would go for leather pouch. It gives more classy look and protection to the phone. In terms of performance with Z10, I can not say more since this is my first BB smartphone. But for SMS and call features the Classic is probably ahead coz of its physical keypad and track pad. For call, Classic has Active noise cancellation with dedicated mic while Z10 got none. And of course, the battery life of Classic is better than Z10.
erhawe, 19 Mar 2015Your tech's spec is no better than asus zenfone 5... but your price is twice time zenfone 5...... moreBecause of the word optimization. BlackBerry OS is optimized for their hardware. So it is smooth , efficient and lagfree for the *intended* use. Not for playing games or major multimedia consumption or installing a million "fart" applications.
BlackBerry OS is lean and mean. Not fat and bloated.
erhawe, 19 Mar 2015Your tech's spec is no better than asus zenfone 5... but your price is twice time zenfone 5...... moreBecause we, BlackBerry owners don't need tons of apps who are doing data mining into our phones, collect private data and send them to Google, developer or a third party to spam us with targeted messages.
Because we need a more stable OS who does not crash when we most need to use our terminal. I have used Android phones, so I know what I am talking about.
P.S. - But, just to play your game, about Apps: BlackBerry 10 OS can run both, Android Apps and Windows Phone apps. That beside native BlackBerry Apps. Does a ZenPhone 5 is able to run WP and BlackBerry Apps?

However, it is not that simple in Australia to upgrade when there is essentially no support from Blackberry, and it costs too much for the Classic. To buy online one risks getting nothing. You dont know if you will actually get your mobile. There is no upgade path for a Bold 9900 user, and from all the hardware problems that came with that phone build. So we end up dumping BB. OK we have gone to Android. It is ok, but not like the clean experience of BB, but we have no choice. By BB's own actions, we are force to move to a different OS. Not a smart loyalty program.
TerfaNenger, 11 Mar 2015this is outgrowing the usual... classically designed. this phone satisfies the eyesI need BlackBerry classic
Do not judge a BB by the specs. It might not boast a quad CPU and an immensely powerful GPU but c'mon, we all know why Android based phones need that. Android does not handle HW well whereas OS 10 is better optimized and will be less bogged down over time and you don't have to go meticulously through the OS wiping all unnecessary stuff. Plus build quality was never an issue with high-end BBs you get a solid piece of hw for your money. Plus for people who values keyboard over a huge touch screen, this is probably the best option.

Is it a worth upgrade coming from BlackBerry z10?

George, 17 Mar 2015Hello, what SAR values ​​has BlackBerry Classic for the European market?I, did not find any officially BB SAR values for Classic, but SAR value for BB Classic sold by Vodafone in UE is 0.59 W/kg, so I think that is the benchmark.
I also found these measurements: Head: 0.70 W/kg 1 g; Body: 0.62 W/kg 1 g and when phone is used as a WiFi Hotspot SAR value is 1.23 W/kg 1 g.
