    Stern related as Howard whine about cell phones.

    I'm thinking of switching from my Motorola Droid Turbo to a new Blackberry Classic.

    Just saw a new Blackberry Classic and was really impressed.
    It feels great in my hand and has everything that made Blackberry great, including the physical keyboard.
    It can even side-load Android apps or purchse from the Amazon AppStore.
    You still have the Blackberry App world.
    That said, there just aren't as many good apps for Blackberry.

    However, I don't need many.
    Docs to Go and DropBox are the only must haves and those are available.

    The camera is still the best on a Smartphone even with less Mega-Pixels.
    The call quality is awesome.
    Email is the best and most secure out there.

    Should I switch?

    although being the third person in N America to purchase that phone seems alluring, Samsung S6 is a far better choice :hw:

    Get a Startec flip phone. You'll be cutting edge.

    Wanted an S6 until I found out they made them bricks. No secondary battery means Apple to me.

    Also hated the ergonomics of the "edge".

    Went with the Note 4 and with the right case it's really good.

    Way more options on a IPhone or Samsung Galaxy

    If you buy a Blackberry you are basically announcing you have issues of letting go of the past.

    Portable rechargers are so cheap these days you don't need a secondary battery.

    Yeah, I really want a Microsoft powered smartphone that doesn't allow me to save email attachments.

    No thank you Mr. Fucktard.

    Hardly.

    I need a smartphone that works and has secure email.
    Blackberry still beats everyone in that regard.

    Why do you need to save them to your phone? What email server do you use?

    Don't be an obtuse asshole.
    EVERY other Smartphone on Planet Earth can do it.
    ONLY Microsoft designs a phone OS that doesn't allow it.

    Being able to save them wherever I want them is my choice.
    If you can't understand the need to save a file locally and use it then you obviously don't use a phone for business.
    The fact I can't save a single email attachment to my DropBox tells me Microsoft doesn't have a fucking clue about how people use phones for business
    and neither do you.
