Gadget : Blackberry Classic goes back to the basics

blackberry

2015 has come with new technology to solve the problems of the previous year. This sounds very businesslike, so is the Blackberry Classic. This is a smart phone that was crafted for business, especially for one who has a lot of e-mail to reply without access to a computer. This gadget has a typical don’t mess with me keyboard that eats up the phone’s space, leaving the screen at only 3.5 inches. This square screen makes viewing what one types hard, so to solve this, the words one types will appear big to reduce error.
The main talk about this phone is the keyboard which even has the blackberry assistant app to sort out what one needs as they type, like word options. One can also form over 25 long press shortcuts on this phone’s keyboard.
However, this gadget doesn’t have a touch screen. It goes back to the retro Blackberry with an optical track pad to help one navigate through the phone. Designers of this phone suggest that it is meant for a demographic of 30 years and above in the business sector. The camera is only 5megapixels and its Blackberry software would slow down if it is used for running more than five apps at the same time. If one loves using his phone for entertainment, the Blackberry Classic is not an option for you.

The good
• Great hardware keyboard.
• Respectable battery life lasting all day.
• Power user shortcuts.

The Bad
• Mediocre camera.
• Slow performance.
• Lackluster software ecosystem.
