The Verizon BlackBerry Classic will be available in Q1 2015. AT&T Classic’s pricing and availability aren’t yet available. If and when I know that Verizon will have it , then I will get it but until then I can’t see spending the money. I like the BB phone better than the iPhone but I can’t justify the expense until I know for sure that my carrier will support it.
So far this phone has been an excellent phone. I am a heavy user, mostly streaming music on a network connection. In spite of heavy usage, I am able to get a full 24 hrs of use.

If they actually put out a non-Verizon version, I’ll be all over this. This is interesting. The Snapdragon 810 is need since its ARMv8 (for quick hardware encryption) and 64-bit (more efficient/memory). The 4GB is a good bonus, great for better multitasking, especially for windowed apps or split screen.
The Verizon LG G3 is now on sale for free on-contract.
The Verizon Sony Xperia Z3v is now on sale for Free with contract. You won’t regret it, The Z3v is a hybrid of the Z2 and Z3. You get the body of the Z2, albeit slightly elongated and thicker (there’s a probable reason), the camera and screen carry over as well. You also get the faster CPU from the Z3, The highlights of the Z3v for me are the 1080p display, the 20.7 mgp camera with 4k video capability, the Super fast processor and the support of other sony products.
