Blackberry classic Q20 question. Pls help.

Hi I kind of like the design of the bb classic. Also heard about its android compatible.(I'm a android user btw)

So is it easy to have google playstore inside?
Launchers etc all can use?

Anyone knows?

Nice to hear that you like.
To answer some of your myths:
  1. It is android-capable. but IT IS NOT AN ANDROID! This means that it will run android applications, but it is not running android.
  2. Yes launchers can be used. BUT,it only will run in the android side of things. The main BlackBerry 10 end will not change
  3. No. Google PlayStore is not preinstalled and you can't do it, at least without some modifications. Even with the modifications, it will not be a true android (Since your and android user and in case you are expecting that)
  4. Yes, that said, you can install the modified Google Playstore. But like any other device with the Google services installed, expect battery to drain like no tomorrow.
  5. App's using google services won't run perfectly. Unless its been modified. That said, most apps, which arent using the google services, but the open-source android services/dependecies can run though.

It is android-capable. but IT IS NOT AN ANDROID! This means that it will run SOME android applications only, . no apps(blackberry playstore) for facebook ,youtube ,DBS banking ,DBS vickers etc ...coming soon NO support for Whatsapp !! ..the amazing amazon playstore only contain about 10% of android apps (mostly useless apps) .....luckily can install google playstore else i would have thrown my passport out of my window
