    The back key should minimize out of the app and the end call should close and app. Blackberry got it backwards. It is really confusing for a user.

    I kind of agree with you, sounds confusing the way they did it.

    Well the back key is used in apps to take you back a level first. If you're at the root then it does minimize the app.

    I think what they did is the best solution really.

    No blackberry didn't get it backwards, Blackberry has always had the end call close the app window but it always left the app open. Just like on the Classic. The back key, if held, would close an app completely. They need to implement this onto the Classic.
    It would just be confusing to old school blackberry users if they reversed it.

    This is correct and I hope gets put back in.

    Anyone have any idea why they changed the way these 2 belt keys function?

    Yes. Probably because of the active tile

    From Classic

    Currently, the back key does nothing when being held. Except to go back when released. So I think they could implement to close an app when holding the back key, if they just wanted. They will not lose any other function.
