    I love the keyboard nostalgia. Feels amazing. BBM is nice. I'm only on 4G not a constant LTE like my Note 4. Speeds are significantly lower. Upload isn't even surpassed 5mb -_- my upload speeds on my note 4 are my max download speeds on the classic.

    I don't play games so apps aren't big for me. I'm trying to find suitable replacement for the apps I do use. A personal finance app I've used for years now Financisto works perfect for me. The android "player" is a joke so no go. The decent looking apps in Blackberry World all cost which is fine, but what if I don't like it's performance.

    I'm not a child so emoji emoticons aren't THAT important but I like how Samsung has them available natively system wide anywhere you can enter text. Not like the classic where I'm limited to BBM or SMS. What about my twitter and Facebook and hell even my email. I shouldn't have to download third party.

    I use this certain to do list as well which I love. I wish the was a convertor app to take your Android ecosystem to blackberry because the android apk just isn't working the way out should

    The price of this device isn't worth the performance

    I love the look and feel of both this device and my note 4. I'm enjoying tactile feedback!!!! But I'm so torn I'm not sure if that's enough to justify all the other short comings.

    I got a voicemail and it said it couldn't download it because the network strength wasn't sufficient o_0

    So I'll keep trying to see if this will work long-term. Oh call blocking my note 4 does perfect blocking private calls, spam texts, etc. An oversight on RIMS part. (Yes that was shade)

    I will play around in Blackberry World. I bought a Blackberry not a Android. I don't want Amazon App store. So I'm going to see what options and performance can be had on natively built apps to see if performance is suitable

    Did I mention I love the keyboard

    I think the op was talking about inserting emojis in fb messages and tweets and emails haha. I personally can't stand emojis as I feel my vocabulary is enough to express how I feel, however, I do understand the op's frustration though.

    I'm with you on all fronts. BlackBerry has always had some shortcomings but usually the pros have always outweighed the cons. The fact that it is overpriced for performance is fair. However, it should be factored in that you are an early adopter. It is always that way with technology. If you want to be one of the first with whatever it may be, it's going to cost you twice what it will in 6 months from now. I think that the saving grace in this aspect is the life expectancy of a BlackBerry. If you can find a way to look past whatever it is you feel you are missing, you can almost be guaranteed that in two to three years, your phone will function just as well as it does today. Some other phones (my girlfriend's old Galaxy Ace, I'm looking at you) seem to function great when you first get them but over time they seem to self destruct. You just bought yourself a device that will last for you and will do everything that you need it to and well.
    The Hub is the best thing that BlackBerry has ever added into their devices and mix that with the beautiful physical keyboard, you've got yourself an amazing little communication tool!

    I opted for this instead of the passport because I thought the placement of the space bar was odd, but I love this keyboard it's the only reason I keep picking the device up lol !!!! Should I sell my note 4 !! Omg do I still want this shield tablet

    The Passport took a long while for me to get used to... I'm not going to lie, I was scared that I was never going to be able to type fast on it. But, believe it or not, the spacebar never felt odd. It was the size of the keys that took the most getting used to. And then figuring out where all of the symbols are mapped to but that's more to feel like a pro than just for efficiencies.

    Keep in mind also that the Note 4 cost the double of the Classic. So of course, performance wise (wifi and signal strength and speed) will probably be faster.

    It's not appropriate that people need to validate their own decisions by trying to convince other people that they should have chose the same thing. Aren't we all still with BlackBerry because we are not those very types of people?
    The thing about all of the BlackBerry 10 devices is that they are all still relevant. The main deciding factor is form. They will all have the latest OS update and basically be capable of the exact same things. Its a matter of which form and features best suit your needs. Personally, I think the Classic looks awesome. And sometimes, I wish the keyboard on the Passport functioned a bit more like the 'classic' trackpad.
