    My 11yo recently smashed my Passport screen so I dusted off the old Z30. I have to say I love it. I forgot how powerful the Z30 was. Android apps run beautifully compared to my old Passport.

    So I've been thinking of getting the White Classic as soon as it comes out in the US but am worried as to how well it will run Android apps (in particular Skype And Spotify).

    Anyone have experience with the Classic versus the Z30?

    I've owned both the Classic and the Z30 and haven't noticed a huge difference between the two of them performance wise to be totally honest. I only have Tapatalk on my Classic now as it's the only Android app that I use but it runs fluidly without any issues, and the performance on the rest of the device in daily usage is great.

    Why would you choose a poorly speced luddite migration device over a z30?

    My main reason is that awesome keyboard but I am concerned about performance of the Classic over the Z30.

    I have both devices. The z30 is a really powerful device and I loved it. I'm currently using the classic right now and it's not a bad performer either. I only use groupme and bnngo for android apps but it seems to run those well.

    Just to clarify the Passport was my device. She was using it for something when she accidently dropped it and cracked the screen.

    A new screen should not cost that much, should it.. about $100 all in?

    What version of groupme on your classic are you running and how did you get it?

    Just a quick update. I pulled the trigger on one of those awesome bundles that ShopBlackBerry.com had on Monday. They didn't last long but I managed to snag a Classic. It arrives today. I will update with my observations of Classic vs Z30 once I have had a chance to play with it.

    I have a Classic right now, Spotify runs without issue. Can't speak for Skype as I don't use it.

    Had a Passport and a Z30, IMO the Classic is better than both. The keyboard is just so good, and the size is perfect.

    I'd be curious to hear some more reviews from people going from a Z30 to a Classic. I've been using my Z30 for almost two years now and I love it, however I've been considering perhaps switching to a Classic. I used to use a Bold 9700 as my daily driver so the Classic naturally is an attractive choice again.

    How's the battery life between the Z30 and the Classic?

    I just had to make this decision and went with Z30, even though I greatly prefer a physical keyboard, I decided it made more sense to bounce between this and my Q10 as I see fit. The Classic *is* awesome - however - it's the same device as a Q, just a better screen and a bigger battery - but not an outstanding one, and non removable. That was a deal breaker for me. I have yet to have a single day yet where I dip below 50% on my Z30. This is just...a really, really well thought out device.

    I agree. If you're looking for a good solid device with a physical keyboard than the Classic is for you. But if you're looking for something that will run android apps well than I'd chose the Classic.
