BlackBerry Classic review: A love letter to fans and few others

 

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,...

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

Saying that the BlackBerry Classic isn't for everyone is like pointing out that snow is really quite chilly and oxygen is a lovely thing to breathe. It's so obvious that it barely means anything at all. What the Classic is, though, is a mostly reliable...

BlackBerry Classic review: For old times' sake

 

The BlackBerry Classic is a quintessential BlackBerry, any way you slice it. With a hardware QWERTY keyboard and navigation buttons, a strictly business appearance and the best enterprise chops in the industry, the newcomer is reminiscent of the...

Square 3.5" 720p LCD display; 294dpi; Corning Gorilla Glass 3 ; 1.5GHz dual-core CPU; Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 chipset; 2GB of RAM ; 8MP camera with auto-focus; digital image stabilization; LED flash; 2MP front-facing camera ; 1080p video capture...

Seriously dated hardware platform ; Non-removable battery ; Rather thick at 10.2mm and also heavy at 177g ; Considerable off-contract price tag ; Limited carrier support in the US (for the time being)

Passing final judgment on the BlackBerry Classic depends on one's perspective about what a smartphone should do. The handset is an excellent business device, but a long way behind the latest iOS and Android smartphones in terms of features that will...

BlackBerry Classic review

 

I'm at the airport in Dallas, after a four-hour flight without usable Wi-Fi. That means I have about four hours of email to catch up on. But it's not just any email: it's Monday morning, pre-trade...

Great hardware keyboard ; Respectable battery life ; Power user shortcuts

Mediocre camera ; Slow performance ; Lackluster software ecosystem

The $449 BlackBerry Classic packs a great keyboard, but a cramped screen

 

BlackBerry's latest smartphone offers a four-row keyboard in a familiar form factor, but those physical keys come at a cost.

The BlackBerry Classic couples a comfortable, accurate keyboard with an attractive design that's sure to please BlackBerry fans. Support for Android apps will please the rest of us, too.

The spacious four-row keyboard results in a smaller, cramped screen.

If you're willing to trade screen size for a superior physical keyboard, the BlackBerry Classic is a fantastic productivity phone for old-school QWERTY junkies.

BlackBerry Classic (Unlocked)

 

The BlackBerry Classic is a great voice and messaging phone that can't deliver on the range of online services most people need.

Excellent build quality. Lovely keyboard. Very good call quality.

Sluggish. Third-party experiences are seriously lacking.

BlackBerry Classic Review

 

Enter the BlackBerry Classic, an old-school ‘berry that employs an iconic design. Indeed, it's a modern spin on a classic, but is it something that'll really bring back consumers to BlackBerry's circle?...

It goes back to the classic Bold keyboard ; Great at productivity tasks ; Dedicated call controls beneath the keyboard ; Trackpad offers precise cursor controls

Video recording quality is disappointing ; Not an ideal multimedia consuming smartphone ; Scrolling vertically causes us to “minimize” apps frequently ; Android apps run slowly

After years of trying to reinvent itself through various formed smartphones meant to be up with the times, as well as a new start with a totally different platform, BlackBerry finds itself in an unpredictable position – one that’s unquestionably more...

BlackBerry Classic Review: Good at Being a BlackBerry, and Not Much Else

 

Let's talk about the word "classic." Classic can mean "timeless," as in an ageless beauty that never fades or a joke with a punchline that always hits. It can also mean "old," like the candy red '57 Chevy you'll probably never see on a modern highway....

BlackBerry Classic review

 

The BlackBerry Classic combines a physical keyboard with the power of the BB10 touchscreen operating system. It allows limited Android apps too, and is a very competent business smartphone. But the small screen and dated processor won't make it a good...

The BlackBerry Classic is the result of a complex evolutionary process. It keeps the best of the old-school BlackBerry Bold series, with its physical QWERTY keyboard, and brings in the power and functionality of the BB10 operating system. All that is...

Review: BlackBerry Classic

 

BlackBerry returns to what it knows best with the Classic: a compact handset that is best used for managing email. The Classic is a one-trick pony in a stable full of tricked out ponies.
