    My Nexus 6p just died due to Google software update and I'm using my Classic until Note 8 arrives on Monday. Wow is this phone slow and old. I feel out of touch with the world on this thing. I cannot believe people are using this in 2017.

    That's unfortunate to hear. I find it runs really well after a software reload , a few fine tunings,and you know what BB apps you are getting. the 30 mb+ android apps are something I like to avoid. Most of my online footprint is to wikipedia, codingsec, and youtube so the only problem I ever have is minimizing while a video is playing. Blackberry HUB should be embraced.. we are lucky to have that. Learn how to manage your folders and attachments.

    I Just purchased both a BB classic and a KEYone. The typing experience is second to none on the classic, even better than the passport IMHO. However, the classic is very underpowered for android apps, and even the apps I could get to run using cobalt's patcher and PlayStore would eventually crash. I t reminds me of the early days when one could run Windows emulation software for the Macintosh. The two were never really compatible..... Finding .apk files outside the google play store isn't too terribly difficult, but getting them to run correctly is another story. Reaching a Zen moment, I found that if I just jettisoned the play store and ran BB10 apps, it runs much better. For instance, I was happy to find Spotify for BB10 from amazon store. I use that instead of Napster (yes they are still around) so I can text and play music which is all I really wanted. I'm not a "power user",( whatever that is) and so I don't require a lot of fluffy apps. In fact, that's why I like the classic so much compared to let's say my Galaxy edge s7. I always hated the gobbs of bloatware on the samsung that I can't delete on a whim without rooting the phone. The only apps I sort of miss are the starbucks android app and TEAM SNAP for my hockey team both of which won't launch , but It's not a biggy. (debit card works too at starbucks). Of course most banks and credit cards have web access, so you don't really "need" their apps. In any case, I have a computer and KEYone if I really need to check credit cards, bank statements. In fact, if it wasn't for the fact that I can't run LUA hipaa compliant msg. app on my classic, it might have been my daily carry. The only major disadvantage would be the poor camera relative to the KEYone (and it is a big difference) . I was at my son's hockey game last weekend and took a few shots with the classic and thought ,"Why do I like this phone so much? photos look like phone pics from 6 yrs. ago....grainy, underexposed"

    So to summarize, for texting and music it's great and it looks way cooler than some curved featureless glass phone. It's the archictectual equivalent of the Empire State Building contrasted with a glass "unbuilding". The Empire State Building is similar to the BB Classic in that it Boasts a beautiful Art Decco lobby, but beyond that stands building with slow elevators, ancient HVAC but a ton of "character"...
