The BlackBerry Classic hearkens back to the good old days, when a solid QWERTY keyboard and a dense design turned phones into full-blown business partners. Alas, with inconsistent performance and an app ecosystem that takes plenty of getting used to, the Classic is still best suited for absolute die-hard productivity hounds and long-standing BlackBerry devotees.
- Its physical QWERTY keyboard is still aces
- Lots of good software touches
- BlackBerry holdouts will love the throwback design
- Finding (and installing)apps can be tiresome
- Hit-or-miss performance
- Can't remove the battery
- Mediocre camera
