    I have been using the Classic for awhile now and just can't seem to find a better phone for ME personally. Anyone switch to Priv and wanna tell me and anyone else about their experience so far?

    The Hub kinda sounds like a disaster at the moment and I feel after 6 months of updates and BlackBerry polishing would make it more of a comfortable switch.

    Input? Thanks

    Came from a Classic, did not have a hard time adjusting to the new keyboard.

    Hub has only one gripe for me (can't see exFAT SD card) but overall meets my needs - can flag, triage, and filter as easily as BB10. I'm hoping this will be fixed in a hub or exFAT driver update soon...

    Never. The Classic is a true BlackBerry, 100%.
    Priv is an experiment between Google, Samgung and BlackBerry. Not for me, sorry

    Battery drains because your phone is running hot. Your phone is running hot maybe because HUB isn't running right.

    Hmm

    Not sure man. I have the music playing now since the gym and it's drained 11 percent so far and again as I write this I can feel my right index finger getting hot. Never experienced thus with all the many BlackBerry products I have had.

    Eventually in a few months. Saving up in progress, waiting for my Classic to complete its full one year run so I don't feel so bad decommissioning it.

    That's really odd. Maybe defective? I'd be annoyed with that for sure

    Exactly. Trust me I want this phone to work but there is no way I can continue. I am not sure how no one else can have these issues. Maybe they are trying to justfy what they bought or they are true BlackBerry fanboys. I have a classic also and if you wanna BlackBerry chat video I will show you. I can run normal programs and you can literally see the percentage drain. Funny I went earlier from 96 to 94. Skipped 95. Lol

    At the moment I am hanging on to my Classic. She has been a fantastic workhorse for the past 11 months. I think the Priv is a pretty cool device and would like to give it a shot in a few months. However, Mama bear would not be to thrilled if I walked in with a $700+ phone.
