The 7 and the Classic are good sized phones, but I wouldn't want to go any bigger. Second issue is Android. Not really an issue, just have never used that OS before so I'm a little nervous about going all in on a phone with no experience at all with the OS. Anyway, thinking of riding the Classic as far as it will take me, with the iPhone7 around as an app machine. Anyone else having reservations about the KeyONE?

    Use what you like. It's ok! The KEYᵒⁿᵉ is a great phone, and if you tried it, I think you'd find it very similar to BB10, but it's all your choice. Browse the forums, join in on discussions. You don't need to restrict your activity to announcing every phone change.

    Yo mate
    Half way through reading your post I was sure this is exactly my story.
    I just switched back to blackberry and picked up the classic on gumtree
    Got lucky with the device as its all new and un used
    I still have the xperia z5
    and like you, i don't take it everywhere as classic is doing me a huge favour by working perfectly.

    I am looking forward to get the keyone

    As it has everything I love about the blackberry

    Strong body
    Qwerty keypad(that awesome keypad)
    BlackBerry security
    Full Android compatibility which is great

    I know you used ios before but trust me when is say this
    Apple sucks big time. (no offence to you)

    Goodluck

    It's fine. There are many threads about praising keyone's battery life. So it's fine.

    It's all about pros and cons when radically switching devices.
    Luckily we humans can adapt.

    Loved the classic form factor. If it were a little faster it would definitely be a phone that I'd at least carry as a a secondary device. One of the best feeling in hand to me. However, there's just too many limitations to it now.

    Try a KEYone and then see if it works for you... Getting a new phone - especially after having one for a long time before - is always a transition. One needs a weeks to see if works for oneself.

    I am happy with my k1, but still think it could have taken some more aspects of the classic (size, keyboard). Overall it is a great device though. So give it a try or leave it and be happy with Classic...no point in complaining

    How much are you selling it for and what's the condition of it? I would love to have the classic as a backup/emergency phone.

    Why do you keep posting about going back to Classic from an iPhone? Why don't you try out Android? I mean they're just phones...

    Buy a KEYone and if you don't like it after couple of weeks, sell it..

    A new Classic II would be great if it had a 4:3 screen and stereo speakers on the bottom. I would buy in a heart beat.
