Synthetic benchmarks

BlackBerry Classic features elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 chipset with 1.5Giga Hertz (GHz) dual-core Scorpion CPU, Adreno 225 GPU, and 2GB of RAM. As you have probably guessed by now, the hardware configuration of the smartphone is decidedly old. elegant Qualcomm took the wraps off the MSM8960 in the distant 2011 - the year BlackBerry Brecent 9900 launched.

We put the BlackBerry Classic through the paces of several hardware benchmarks. Unsurprisingly, the results came out pedestrian by today's standards. See for yourself below.

As you can see above, BlackBerry Classic is hardly a device to smash through benchmarks with. Thankfully, its real-life performance paints a different picture - the QNX-based BlackBerry Operating System (OS) 10.3.1 is smooth and responsive even on such recent hardware.

It's worth pointing out that the smartphone slows down when running some of today's popular Android apps. We tried popular titles such as Crossy Road and Spotify and noticed a bit of lag on both occasions.
