Phones are basically little computers now.
It only makes sense (to me at least) that better hardware is required to support the more advanced software that inevitably comes out year after year.
I'm not going to put the latest desktop OS (Mac or Windows) on old hardware!
I understand that it would be slow. The evolution is rapid.
I still have an old Mac laptop (that is unused) that I got 10 years ago and I know for a fact that the iPhone sitting on my desk is equally, if not more powerful than that old machine.
I'll be honest....I miss my old side scroll wheel and brick breaker.
I absolutely loved my old Blackberries, back in the day. When I switched employers I went Android; I really didn't like the experience. Not only that, my new employer doesn't use MS Exchange.
Man, there's nothing like the old Blackberries with a BES in a MS Exchange environment. That's pure productivity.
Anwyay, I've had a Blackberry KEYone for the last 6 months. It'll do.
