BlackBerry Classic Smartphone overview

 

CLASSIC SQC100-1 REG UK QWERTY WHITE

Expert review by : Chris Hall (pocket-lint.com)

BlackBerry Classic review: Timeless, or stuck in the past?

 

For many, the BlackBerry was the first rung on the smartphone ladder. In fact, the BlackBerry was the smartphone in a sea of inconsistent feature phones; a phone doing things that no other could. The BlackBerry Classic undoubtedly achieves its aims....

Keyboard, BB Hub, better controls, solid design

OS can feel slow, hybrid approach to apps sometimes lets you down, can't swap battery, varied media experience, weak front camera

The BlackBerry Classic undoubtedly achieves its aims. This is every bit an upgrade of the Bold, exhibiting the same strengths, broadening the experience and offering more for the BlackBerry user. Of the recent BlackBerry launches, the Classic is the...

BlackBerry Classic hands-on: A Bold move - Pocket-lint

 

BlackBerry today officially pulled the covers off the BlackBerry Classic, a device looking to recapture the glory days of BlackBerry's past. It harks back

BlackBerry Classic review

 

BlackBerry has thrown all of its traditional features at the Classic.

Perfect for BlackBerry fans ; Improved navigation ; Great messaging ; Fast web browsing

Chunky and heavy ; Erratic battery life ; Fewer apps on offer ; Square screen not media friendly

Ratings in depth When you're down to 0.5% of the market share in global smartphone shipments, what do you do? If you're BlackBerry, the answer is go back to what you're best known for, namely full QWERTY keyboards, high-end security features and a...

BlackBerry Classic review

 

The BlackBerry Classic is a smartphone that is, depending on your viewpoint, another sign of BlackBerry's renaissance, or the final nail in an already doomed BlackBerry's coffin. A sign of a company that knows its strengths, or one that is doomed to...

This is a hard product to score. If you want a smartphone with a keyboard, and you want it purely for messaging and calls, with a little web-browsing thrown in, the BlackBerry Classic is the perfect device at an excellent price. A five star product....

BlackBerry Classic Review: In Depth

 

If the Passport was designed to entice newcomers to the world of BlackBerry with its supercharged spec sheet, the more conservative Classic is for those...

Attractive display ; Solid hardware keyboard ; Competent camera experience

Average battery life ; Bulky, heavy ; Compatibility issues

As its name suggests, the BlackBerry Classic is the latest incarnation of all that BlackBerry is known for: good business chops, security, a solidly built device and a sterling hardware keyboard. However, the optical trackpad and the additional buttons...

BlackBerry Classic review

 

The BlackBerry Classic aims to succeed where the BlackBerry Bold 9900 did not. Released in 2011, the 9900 had BlackBerry 7 OS, powerful hardware, BlackBerry's four-row QWERTY keyboard and a touch screen, but it didn't exactly reverse the company's...

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

 

In the world of touch, is there still any room for type? BlackBerry's keyboard sporting Classic is one smartphone that certainly thinks so.

Well built; Superb QWERTY typing experience; Good business multitasker

Erratic battery performance; R1k overpriced

BlackBerry's long term future may be uncertain at this point, but devices like the Passport and Classic show what the Canadian manufacturer is capable of, especially within the business user space. As a business-focused device, the Classic thrives, and...

BlackBerry Classic review

 

The BlackBerry Classic, as its name suggests, is a throwback to the tactile keyboard-toting BlackBerrys of the past, giving you physical QWERTY keys to dance your thumbs around, but it also packs in slightly more modern necessities such as a...

While the current crop of smartphones is largely dominated by monolithic slabs of plastic or metal, BlackBerry’s back with a love-letter to the past in the form of the BlackBerry Classic, a business-focused smartphone that plants your thumbs on its...

While BlackBerry’s made the best version of its keyboard-toting smartphone yet, it still falls down in numerous places. Its screen size, for starters, while alright for replying to emails, is almost useless for actually browsing the web or scrolling...

If you’re a die-hard BlackBerry purist and you’ve been waiting patiently to see the Bold lineup make a comeback, the Classic is the QWERTY keyboard-toting, throwback business phone you’ve been waiting for. It’s just as practical as the massive...

BlackBerry Classic review: Back to the past is not how to get to the future

 

The BlackBerry Classic is for the QWERTY keyboard faithful and email workaholic only.

Excellent QWERTY keyboard ; Extremely durable

BlackBerry 10 is a mess ; Small, square-shaped screen ; App store situation is lousy

The BlackBerry Classic is for the QWERTY keyboard faithful and email workaholic only. BlackBerry 10 is still as confusing as ever and essential apps like Instagram and Google's own suite of apps are nowhere to found.
