Blackberry has learned nothing

I finally got the chance to mess around at length with the Classic. First off, its slow. And I mean agonizingly slow and/or hitchy in some cases. The cheapest smartphones from the competition are more responsive than this turtle of a device. Sure, a lot of it might be fixable via updates, but Blackberry has a very poor history in this regard so I expect little to no improvement. Like previous OS 10 devices the UI is tolerable if you're transitioning from another touchscreen ecosystem..and that's a big problem because the Classic was supposed to be targeted at the most hard-core of the BB faithful. Is it easier to use than the Q10? Yes, but only just. A determined user could probably learn to deal with the Android-like inconsistencies...

Non Removable Battery

The fact I cannot remove the battery & swap it with a fully charged one up till recently was a deal breaker for me however, I am seeing & hearing such good feedback on this device that I may just have to overlook this. In the past, I have always had spare batteries for my Blackberrys. Never being caught without a charge! I'm wondering, was this a step backwards "in my mind" for BlackBerry or does this device need to have a "always constant charge" ?

android apps

here we go again!
I had a blackberry bold 9930 and when i upgrade to the Q10
no more android apps supported.

Blackberry hope you do something about this.
because i need to used my bank mobile app to charge my customers credit card.
other wise, I think i will have to switch to the Ladies phone.
Yes the one with the fruit symbol.

Oh thank God for this forums.

It will support the amazon app store as does the Q10. I currently have the Q10 and since the 10.2 update have the amazon app store on it as well.

Almost all my apps were apks!
It does support Android apps which you can install.
