    Like many members here, I switch between a Passport (red version) to my black Classic.

    I use the Passport for a few days and get tired of the long keystrokes and hand strain and always such a pleasure to go back to my Classic.

    However the Classic is painfully slow compared to the Passport. I do a lot of searches for contacts to call or text and the 5 second wait to see the results is a pain as compared to the immediate response of the Passport.

    I remember in old days of using a 9900, the os slowed down when too many emails or texts accumulated and the recommendation was to delete tons of messages.

    Would this work with the classic or are the internals like processor just too old to compare to a passport? I removed the SD Card, always close down Apps and keep the os updated, and reboot every few days but looking for any other suggestions to have a snappier classic!

    Thx in advance....

    Thx for the quick feedback!

    Yeah, Priv is next on my list!

    I tried the Note4 last year which lasted about 4 days before going back to my Z30. All the in and out of Apps to communicate and terrible email app made it too cumbersome to use.

    The Classic is so easy to use and carry around. I wish they'd upgrade the internals or some 3rd party company offer a processor upgrade! I'd upgrade in two secs.

    I agree. Classic is awesome and my favorite phone to date!

    I must admit that I also carry an iPhone 6 just in case I need those special apps.

    Classic is definitely fast enough for what I do as is!

    My Q10 and Z10 seem fluid and smooth. I haven't had the privilege to use a Passport but I'm assuming the Classic is the same speed as the Q10 right?

    Passport is smoother due to it's higher specs. But for me, Classic is good enough for me. Just like what B1aze said, it is what it is. You should get a phone that suits your need.

    Wow. That actually helped! Thanks very much for the advice. I didn't even know we had those options in settings!

    Made my day!

    I just turned off all search settings for my Q10 since I don't use them anyway. Some smaller apps do seen to open faster.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    @joewoo, thank you soooo much! That massively sped up my search results. Mine was still on default, and looking through ever more apps as I've been installing them!

    Thanks from me too! I noticed after this last update my search was lagging.

    Lo and behold I turned off half the items to search, and it's much snappier now.

    I have a motoX as a spare, and the search on it is lightning fast, but it won't find anything on the phoe...just straight to Google.
