A phone without a good picture quality for me , its not a phone.The real question most people ask , are the cameras any good?. The BlackBerry Classic camera could be the best thing since sliced bread for you. It’s no secret the camera on the Bold 9900 was among BlackBerry’s worst offerings and using a Classic could make you feel like you stepped into the future for a bit.let take look at the camera spec
The BlackBerry Classic is a device you can hold in one hand and still get things done. You can slide it under the table in the boardroom and still pound out an email or BBM with ease. All this while carrying the same durable yet luxurious feel of older BlackBerry smartphones such as the BlackBerry Bold.
