The Blackberry Classic also known as Q20 was first announced in June, 2014 and was later released into market in December of the same year. The physical appearance of this phone is sleek enough to make anyone love it. This really a cool phone with well fitted QWERTY keyboard and navigation buttons with other four utility keys. The device  is 5.1 inches tall, 2.8 inches wide and 0.4 inch thick.


Personally, I think the battery capacity is low, its just 2515 mAh but it also comes with a sophisticated power optimization software that makes it function beyond the look of the capacity. You can enjoy up to 22hours with a fully charged battery.

Interestingly, this device support Android apps. Many will love this feature. Although it support Android apps, you are largely limited to what is available on the Amazon Appstore. The blackberry world is also there for you. You can as well install apk file on the device.  Lots of people have classified the device as a productivity phone. Although, the small size of the keypad is still what many individuals detest about the device. Some have also complained about the screen size that its too small. That may depend on personal interest.
