    I wish they made it with a removable battery, not because I swap batteries throughout the day, but if this happens to be the last of the PBK's BlackBerry makes then I would like to extend its life as long as possible.

    Hub, good reception, nice form factor, not big and not small, good enough to fit into a pocket.

    Brushaway, agreed. What didn't make my top 5 list was the size of the Classic. I would have put it as #6. The Classic is about as big of a phone as I would like to go. I actually prefer the Q10's size. The Priv looks like it is going to be a big phone (Z30ish maybe) and then add the sliding keyboard (I'm not a big fan of touch screen phones) and now you're looking at a yard stick (exaggerated).

    I'm sure it will be a great device, just not a fit for my daily needs.

    I would add price, for me.

    I was seriously looking at the PassPort, but didn't have the extra cash. Classic has turned out to be very satisfactory.

    2.) Best at communication (Emails)
    3.) Toolbelt/touchpad
    4.) My phone is on an EIP, so I'm still making payments on it.
    5.) Gets good signal.

    1.) One-handed messaging Beast with a BB10 heart and a keyboard only BlackBerry can craft... One of the top 5 most comfortable BlackBerry keyboards easily... I'd rank it #3, falling just slightly behind the #2 Bold 9900 and #1 Bold 9000... The 9780 and 9700 tied for fourth place respectively... The Classic definitely keeping that love for messaging alive and well... Almost compels me to want to write more...
    2.) Toolbelt; supplying the End key for quick easy hang-ups, the back key at thumbs stretch and the beloved trackpad (see #3)
    3.) Trackpad for precision, practical productivity and added functionality (see #4)
    4.) SHIFT + Trackpad scroll to highlight and 'Select All' with ease. Excellent in so many scenarios...
    5.) Finally, I stay with the Classic because it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. I absolutely love this form factor and adore all the extra 'little things' that add to my overall comfort when using my device for anything and everything I need to do...

    PKB
    Tool Belt
    BB10
    LCD screen
    Battery Life (to bad they didn't make lighter batteries)

    I actually tried to get away from the Classic. I wanted a P9983 so bad I bought a Q10 to see if I would like not having a tool belt. It took less than a week and the Q10 was returned.

    I still use me 99 as a work phone. Love the size, weight and productivity of the 9900.

    Well no more P9983 dreams.

    For me, the only two that count... trackpad and keyboard.

    Overall, the Classic is a smartphone that allows you to do things in different ways. It meshes well with my brain.

    Best keyboard ever (imo)
    Best 1 hand usage on any bb10 to date
    Toolbelt (you wouldn't think you really need it with the bb10 os until you actually start using it).
    Battery life
    Classy/professional look to the phone.

    It looks like a phone. "I didn't know they still made those!"
    Feels sturdy
    Quick settings, flip on battery saver and mobile hotspot and that's a perfect mobile work mode
