    In relation to using Spotify on the classic - does it still require Premium service? Thanks

    To the Android apps I can say that at some point you probably just have to make a decision. BlackBerry phones are great, especially if you're a physical keyboard type of guy, but app supply is horrible. Also, with every update from Snap or with every new app you get you'll have to wonder if it will still work.

    So, at some point you just have to decide what's more important to you. Either you go with BlackBerry for the form factor, physical keyboard, the hub and all the other perks... or you go with Android or iOS if you want a fast phone with great specs and a ton of apps. Both (unless you carry two phones) is just not possible at this time.

    Well, spotify you can choose specific songs. It's not Internet radio. That's why I use it so much. And I don't want an android I want an iPhone lmao

    Posted via CB10
    And why would I waste my time choosing songs if I already have the songs I like in my collection? Not to mention, no streaming service will have audio quality that matches my flac files. I fail to see ANY reason to use spotify or any other music streaming service. Of course that's for me, others are not like me and these services work for them.

    But for you, if you really value snapchat, spotify, and other android apps, why wouldn't you want an Android device? Unless you really want a physical keyboard...

    There is no way amazon appstore spotify opens at the same speed as your note 4. That's impossible. Even reviews show how sluggish amazon appstore apps are. They take forever to open up.

    Posted via CB10
    It's a silly thing, but I stopped using the Amazon app store because it felt like a compounding problem. While some Android apps actually run well enough, I actually find the Amazon client itself is sluggish to use. Factor in that it's a source for getting Android apps that are often out of date in that store, and it's not great. It does fill a few of the voids, but honestly, I found SNAP to be a much, much better solution.

    It's a native client, so the experience of finding Android apps is much slicker and nicer. And it's source is Google, so the latest and greatest Android versions are there and available. It still doesn't fix all the issues (some performance issues with some apps; need for Google Services), but I find it a much better solution for dealing with the app situation on BlackBerry.

    I tried the iPhone 6, 6+ & Nexus 6, and they are exceptional devices for certain user types. I'm settled in with the Classic and don't rely on apps outside the BB10 OS. If certain apps are important to the user, then a software choice may over ride the hardware choice. The user should choose what works best and is most comfortable.

    Not everyone has the hundreds of thousands of songs in their collection that they may want to listen to at any given moment. Services like Spotify and Apple Music are nice because you can chose to listen to anything in their catalog at any time. Maybe I want to listen to some old '80s and '90s jams I had on cassette and CD that didn't survive in to my current collection of CDs and digital music... Well, I can just stream them from my music service. Maybe I'm in a country music mood... A music genre I've rarely spent money buying albums from. Well, I can just stream it from my music service.

    Also, music services largely aren't for audiophiles. Most people are using the earbuds that came packaged with their device, and lossless audio formats aren't really going to matter with junk earbuds plugged straight in to your mobile with no amplification etc etc etc.

    I need help people. I don't know if it's me or everyone is starting to feel this way but I'm getting tired of my blackberry not having an app that I use a lot which is snapchat. I hate having to carry two phones. Another thing is that sure amazon provides a lot of more apps to the blackberry but the apps are so freaking slow. For example the spotify app is another app that I use a lot on a daily basis. But it's soooo slow to load up my playlists and sometimes doesn't even load which leads me to have to open and close the app 4-5 times till it loads each taking about 30 seconds to 1 minute to know if it loaded or not since when it does load it takes forever. Even if I have the music downloaded it takes forever. I understand on the passport it virtually takes no time to open but classic has **** specs compared to passport specs. I love the os and keyboard of my blackberry. I don't want to get rid of it because i've been a blackberry fan for so long and I love the keyboard but I'm tired of the blackberries being so far behind compared to other phones. In the exception of the passport. The battery is supposed to be 2500 mAh but my phone dies so freaking fast. I'm talking about it being at 50% after 2 hours of non-stop use. Is that stupid or what? I'm leaning towards getting an iPhone. Am I doing something wrong is this just the harsh reality? Your opinions would be highly appreciated.

    Why don't you buy a high-end android phone? Or yes, just go with an iPhone. Looks like you need apps and specs anyway. And you are aware that android apps consume more battery, right? I hope so. You chose the at phone. The phone is not to be blamed. It's your poor choice. Phones are made as an option that's why there are many of them. And since you know what that phone is before buying, I'm really wondering why you bought it despite knowing everything that you need for a gadget.

    Quality under the skin.

    Hi OP,

    I also got gave up my Classic completely now...gonna wait for the next version with a more reasonable spec.

    I briefly used it for a few days after I found out that the newest update and alleviated the DT issue a bit, however after two days with it I found that I just cannot cope with the app-less situation...and also like you mentioned how slow everything opens.

    I am now back to my iPhone 6, and this time for good. I don't carry two phones cuz to me that's a bit absurd, and let's be honest, iPhone 6, even though without a physical keyboard, provides almost 99.99% of the efficiency of the Classic PKB. I believe given enough time I could probably type FASTER on my iPhone...

    Nevertheless I haven't give up completely on the Blcxkberry just yet. If they release the next Classic with much improved specs, and maybe better support of the Android apps (or perhaps NATIVE support, by any chance?) I would buy it in an instant

    Then get spotify or the other streaming services. I guess you missed the part where I specify that's just for me and why I don't bother with those. And I don't have hundreds of thousands of songs that I like enough to listen to over and over. I'm very picky with my music and the majority of songs out there I do not enjoy. So my collection is perfect for me.

    Well, I bought this phone because I loved the Bold 9900 which I had but back then there wasn't that many apps. But now that I own this Classic I love the os and keyboard but the sluggishness on android apps pisses me off. I wish I didn't have to move on to another phone company that doesn't have a keyboard.

    I don't like the android operating system. And when I bought this phone I didn't care for apps. Obviously you start getting tired of the no apps. With no apps you get bored. It's ultimately my fault, I understand. I don't regret getting this phone it's just stressing having to carry two phones because I love the keyboard and os of the BlackBerry. Ugh.

    The lack of apps is a real disadvantage. Being honest, apps like Spotify it works but not as smooth or fast as android. I knew it should happen that's why now I use more for multimedia and apps my Samsung Galaxy Tab S

    With this combo I can work with Classic flawlessly and enjoy/have fun with my tab S.

    If it works for you, great. I have every type of music that I like in my music collection, which is on my phone's sd card, so also right in the palm of my hands. Every streaming service I've tried always has more songs I dislike than those I like, so I've personally stopped using them. Sick of having to skip 5 songs to find one I like, and it takes too long to try to manually pick out the ones I like for the station to remember...

    Huh Spotify works fine on my classic just about as fast as my note 4. Something must be going on with your phone to eat battery like that and to make spotify run so slow. What all apps do you have on your classic?

    Posted via CB10
    What version of spotify do you have?
    I have slow loading issues with spotify as well on my z30 and was just curious.

    99.99%? Wtf the auto correct on iOS is the biggest piece of crap ever. Also manually switching between input language as it can't handle multiple ones at the same time... and so on. I could write a little novel about how much the keyboard sucks on iOS....
