It’s good to know that Blackberry is really paying attention to views of users and have resorted to going back to the past to make the future better with the Blackberry Q20 Classic.

Blackberry has proven to the aware of the fact that the function buttons still play an important role in making a smartphone much easier to operate especially for newbies rather than swiping up to close apps.
Considering the fact that earlier BB10 series lack the function keys and visible track-pad, most users tend not to understand how the BB10 phones operate unless if they have used the playbook device or been shown and it is to this fact, the mobile company has revisit it’s past (Likes of the curve, bold etc) to introduce the function buttons and the trackpad to the blackberry classic which is really a welcome idea.
