Anyway, I don't think he really uses it, he just carries it on his belt because it looks cool.

It was a joke. But he only has about 10 numbers on it, and very limited email. no apps, no tecting, no bbm. and presumably when he's sitting at his desk he uses the computer and phone there. and he has a desk on his plane and in his car he has a phone and a computer as well.

I've been with blackberry since the beginning..  I love blackberry. It's simply awesome. Have the q10
Well, you just said it why your opinion doesn't count: you've always been with BB.

Try an S5 for 2 months and then we can have a discussion.

Most of us android users had blackberry in the past and no one would consider going beck.

you seem to be in the minority with that opinion
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

I am in that minority too.  I think the UI is really solid.  But I have long since given up trying to convince people.  The truth is that iOS, Android, and BB10 all have their merits and shortcomings.  But BB will ultimately lose because they messed up early and have gotten their hardware up to date way too late in the game.  Its a marketing thing now and BB is going to lose that battle every time.  I almost feel like they would have been better off putting out BB10 under a new brand that didnt carry the weight of the name Blackberry.  It would have been a huge gamble (not automatically bringing their existing customer base) but they may have had a shot of appealing to new, younger customers as a new OS that does things better.

Are you kidding?
BB is still far, far away, as long as they have that pathetic shell of an app store.

Yes and now I have the S6 and wouldn't consider going back to the classic. The classic really has nothing going for it except that its more so called secure.

The UI is still not up to date it feels like im using an android from the 90s its a terrible phone, if I didnt need any apps I'd prefer the Bold 9930 over the classic.

That's not really a problem considering you can get any android app but like I said upthread the apps aren't optimized and that's a huge issue.
