Are you kidding?
BB is still far, far away, as long as they have that pathetic shell of an app store.
Their app store deficiency is one of the areas that I believe is PR driven, its really not that bad.  And with the Amazon app store on BB10.3 now there is access to basically all apps.  Some people complain about the way a few of those apps run but I have not had any issues.  Bottom line I have every app that I want or need on my phone.  give me an app that you use that is not available on BB?

The apps from Android don't work well.
And the native app store is missing tons of apps that I and probably most people use.
I don't remember now, but in my searches I came up empty many times. Amazon Seller central I do remember.
Live forever or die trying.

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.
I have used my wife's S5 very much.  i dont feel like the UI is any more modern/better than BB10. Personally I really like the layout of the BB UI.   I dont use the classic but my mom does and when Ive played around with it I liked it.  This is a matter of opinion of course and like I said, I dont try to convince anyone to switch to BB.  Some people will prefer any of the OS's over any of the others.  i think if they had stamped the name QNX on BB10 and not called it a blackberry then people would have liked it more.

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.

Poorly working apps is not called competition to the Android or iOS app stores in 2015.

OK

1. when did you use it? they have updated the OS in the past 2 Months
2. The android apps work perfectly and ARE optimized
3. Dont get a classic for other reasons
4. I dont what your talking about that the "classic" is more secure

I think he meant BB in general over the S6

Its nothing more than a q10 the specs are the same and it just has a tool belt dumped in.
They will have to come out with the Classic 2 in a year

I used it until the S6 came out which is about a week and a half ago.
They are not optimized at all, much slower in opening.
How does the Amex app work etc.
I didn't mean that the classic was more secure I meant BB in general.
The fact that it had a trackpad was the reason I got it over the Q10.

Okay but between the Q10 or the Classic would make more sense to get the Classic no?
