    I'm using my new Classic, and I'm loving the native BlackBerry experience. I used to use Spotify frequently on my former Android device, and the app takes over 30 seconds (!!) to even render the main UI, and an additional 15 to even let me interact with it. Is there *any* hope for improved Android Player performance? Can I do anything to improve it?

    AT&T is holding out on the update... is there a way I can update with a program like I used to on BlackBerry OS 6? I used to own a Bold 9780 a few years ago.

    Yes. Best way to do a non-destructive update for a beginner is to use a blitz file. Look here for the file and the instructions:

    Android Runtime is slightly better in 10.3.2, but don't expect miracles.

    Results vary of course, but some apps run very well actually (on 10.3.1 or 10.3.2). Netflix, Waze, Synology, to name a few.

    I can say Netflix works perfectly. I notice that apps designed for Gingerbread (Android 2.3) work best, so I have been sideloading them whenever possible in place of the 4.3 versions.

    So, back to the original topic: will future updates improve this, or is the "solution" to try to get developers to code natively?

    Alright, thanks for the input. I downgraded Spotify to the last version for Gingerbread, and it runs much better. From what I've gathered, this is the best we can do for now.

    If you are disappointed with the android performance now you should of seen it back in 10.0

    Couldn't it be the low specs of the Classic that makes the app load that slow?
    I saw some youtube clips that showed that an 'heavy game' like Temple Run or Subway Surf also takes like 20 secs to open.

    I have the latest spotify running on my q10 with 10.3.1 and it loads under 10 second. Must be a software glitch on your classic. It runs just fine.

    I saw a video comparison of the Classic vs the Passport. The Amazon App Store was opened about the same time on both devices. When the guy already start scrolling through the app store on the Passport it still took a few more seconds to open on the Classic. So the low specs on the Classic does run Android apps significantly slower.
