    I've been using Blackberries for years and love them, but find the sound quality on my old model (a Curve 9320) pretty awful. I want to know a) if the sound on more recent Blackberrys is really better and b) if so, if there is a significant difference in sound between the Classic and say a Q5 or a Q10?

    For info, I am not at all interested in camera or apps. All other things being equal, I would rather have a smaller model.

    The only other deciding factor may be if one of the models allows more than one email account (i.e. gmail + professional account) as with the Curve you can only have one... Thanks guys!

    Q10, Classic, Passport as well as Z30 has good and loud sound, battery of Z30 and Passport are too good and in all the devices mentioned above can carry more than one email.

    I have the Classic, Passport, and Z30 and while they all sound great, I have to give the "best sound" award to the Z30. I actually prefer the other two devices for most every other category but if I want to listen to music straight from one of my devices, the Z30 is the go-to. It sounds just as good as many of the mini portable speakers that you could buy.

    To a comment above; the Classic does not have two speakers. One is a mic.

    Sound quality will be better on the newer BlackBerry devices and all BB10 will handle multiple email.

    As others have commented the Z30 and PP do offer better all around audio but between the three smaller devices you favour, the Q10 and Classic are comparable.
    Since you are coming from the Curve you may prefer the Classic features but as far as hardware it's quite similar to Q10.

    Z30. I used one before I move to Passport.
    The sound quality is better on Z30. Can't beat them 3 speakers.
    And if you play movie on landscape, you'll get great left right stereo due to the speakers arrangement at the top and bottom of the phone.
