    Hey Slagman, first off: another 'thank-you' for the well composed and useful Classic tips!

    And now I have a question for you... On the Passport, when you have a message open in the Hub, you can go to the next or previous message using a gesture (swipe in from the left and then up or down). This gesture doesn't seem to work on the Classic, though I'm unsure as to why BlackBerry would have removed it. Smaller screen size, maybe? Is there another shortcut or method to do this on the Classic?
    I figured it out... 'N' or 'P' bring you to the next and previous. It seems to my logic that 'next' and 'previous' are backwards, but that's only my opinion. If you're dealing with it as a list from top to bottom, ok. If you're talking chronologically, it seems backwards.

    Same as the 'I' and 'O' zooming in and out even though the '+' and '-' keys are on the opposite ones.

    Lol yeah right. The camera on classic sucks bad. I have my Z30 sitting here and I'm really 90% tempted to switch back. The classic is a bare bones BlackBerry with no comparison to the Z30. The Z30 is still by far the best running BlackBerry.

    "Once you go Black you'll never go back"
    Um, the camera on both are identical... o.O

    Oh yah, I think it's an OS thing because I thought I remember that gesture working on my Q10... Anyway, hope you enjoy the phone. :-)

    Been using my classic for a few days now and I'm just not happy with it. Coming from an iPhone 6 right now.

    I installed Snap and got most of the apps I use on there.

    Google Maps is awful to use on it. It's super slow in comparison to my 6. The default BB maps is faster but a terrible application in itself.

    Hub is a beauty. My banking apps from BB World are significant slower than the iOS counterparts. But that's not a huge concern to me.

    I love the OS but I can't help but feel less productive on this thing if I can't get access to my maps, banking apps without wasting an extra few minutes for each task.

    It genuinely feels like a step backwards from the 6. But I absolutely love the hardware. It feels like a phone and not a children's toy.

    Well, android apps are emulated. Almost always means that it'll be slower than if it was running native. If only Google would make it for BB10. Oh well. For what it's worth, I downloaded and installed version 7.0 of the maps, it works much better. They just added more and more junk since then that makes it run crappy. And it's not just BB10, I bought an Android device for Uber (driver) and the google maps is super cluttered and laggy... Other than the voice they use, I prefer the older version 7.0 to the newest version. More simple and less random pop-ups telling you obvious things...

    Also, thanks a ton for those tips Slagman!

    I didn't know the one about long pressing the BlackBerry button, and how that is similar to swiping from the top of the screen!

    I'll use that one lots.

    (I also saved you're list in notes i'm going to use it every time someone asks about the benefits of a BlackBerry Classic)

    Yah, and the camera that's worse than the Z30 or Z10 even though it's the same exact camera right?

    Nah. You just want to bash as is evident in this thread and others. There is zero issue with the track pad. Still getting things set up but my new Classic is one very well put together device. The form factor is excellent.

    I recently switched from android to the classic yesterday! So far so good.. I do like the keyboard and android apps. I sideloaded snap where I can get Google play apps. However I'm not so sure I'm sold on this phone.. suggestions on how I can better adjust?

    Posted via CB10
    For starters, don't use Snap if you want Android apps. Go here to set things up:
    http://forums.crackberry.com/android...g-page-965257/

    and then here for the Play store:
    http://forums.crackberry.com/android.../#post11189556

    Much better functionality.

    The Classic is one of my favorite phones form-factor wise of all time, just needs a faster processor and more RAM.

    This guy is right, Nostradamus actually predicted BlackBerry's failure after its release of the Priv. Crazy stuff. However, I'm doubtful he actually knew what exactly he was predicting.

    Exactly, it's so annoying, just get me where I'm going... I like version 7.0 because it works and doesn't do any of that.
