    I love my Z30...especially after the 10.3.1 update. But I just can't resist the feeling of a physical keyboard+track pad that I loved as well when using the 9900 two years ago. Just ordered a Classic on amazon, hope it won't disappoint!

    I think you're going to be shocked at how small the screen feels. I tried to use a Q5 after having a Z10 and just couldn't deal with the lack of screen. As much as I love a physical keyboard the screen ended up being more important than I thought. But I had been using a Torch 2 for the last few years so I guess I had been used to the bigger 16x9 screen since 2011.

    Man I wish they'd make a slider.

    But I'll be genuinely interested to see how you adjust.

    I'm tempted to do this same switch, OP. I am just concerned the nostalgia will wear off and I'll be back to my Z30 and $500 lighter.

    Let us know how it goes.

    I feel the same way; I miss physical keyboards but cannot stand a screen less than 4in so a slider is the best of both worlds.

    I also had a Z30 and now I have the Classic. It doesn't bother me that It has a smaller screen because games and videos aren't very important for me on a smartphone.
    The physical keyboard is the best thing on the Classic and it's much better than a virtual keyboard. Now I can type much faster and make less mistakes.

    I went from a z10 to a passport, and I must say my typing has improved dramatically.

    Bigger screen than the 9900 but it is top heavy so it is hard to one hand type

    I agree with the above, lying on the couch with a beer makes it a little difficult to type an email without the phone falling on your chest.

    However, sitting up right, or holding the phone tilted slightly back remedies this problem.

    I'm using my 9900 with WiFi when I'm in bed!

    Best of both worlds
