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.
That was the mistake that you got the classic because of the track pad. The track pad was just dumped there it was not meant for BB OS 10
Not that is Geshmak at all but there is a way to get the play store on the BB

I had the Q10 and I actually liked the Classic more, because of the trackpad. About the apps I know how to get all the android apps but try the Amex app and tell me how well it works.

Everything works great now even Waze which sucked until my recent update, however they didn't put enough juice in the classic. After all the complaints of lag, one would think that Blackberry would release a classic device with a lot of horsepower, they didn't......I'm still sticking to it because I like it, but I can understand why people hate them.

Also, things started looking after the VERY recent OS updates.

The biggest problem with the classic is that it has the same specs as the Q10 but they dumped a toolbelt. People thought that it was a "better" phone but in reality it's not. Not only that but the OS was designed to be used without a toolbelt.

When signing in I always had to hit no on notification request and then some other pop up question, you signed in and it went directly to this?

As if any of this relevant to the convo...
Any OS has vulnerabilities, the question is how serious the vulnerabilities are, and how fast does the company fix it.
Live forever or die trying.

That is an attack on the Internet even google chrome constantly updates for vulnerability. But this is a vulnerability in the device itself.

Whatever I hate apple so I guess this is a bias post
