    Dtek60 if you don't need a physical keyboard. Priv if you do. Also, the Mercury should be out soon, it may be worth waiting for.

    Thanks, yeah don't need the pkb. The Priv helped me make the move to vkbn thank god. The only thing that I'm afraid of is the lack of accessories ei; screen protector cases.. Any luck with that? Thanks

    I know there is a tempered glass protector on Amazon that most seem happy with. There's a thread about that floating around here.

    I'm sure you can find a decent case to go along with it. This is basically the same form factor as the Alcatel 4s. Camera lineups may be a bit off, but close.

    I have had the BlackBerry Torch 2 9810, the Z30, the Passport SE, the PRIV, and the Dtek60.

    I can say the PROS of the Dtek60 are:

    - fast processor
    - large memory storage
    - lots of Android apps
    - very good 21 MP rear camera
    - 21MP camera takes wider shots with natural colours.
    - very good 8 MP front camera
    - takes excellent pictures with either camera, especially with HDR turned on and "focus before shutter" turned on; colours not over-saturated like PRIV.
    - decent BlackBerry virtual keyboard
    - DTEK security
    - big bright 5.5" display
    - doesn't heat up as much as PRIV
    - great solid metal and glass build
    - lighter and thinner than PRIV
    - BlackBerry HUB
    - great price for high quality
    - Good reception / calling
    - Good speakers
    - headphone port at top of phone
    - useful fingerprint scanner to unlock both phone and individual apps
    - useful convenience side button
    - quick charging with BlackBerry rapid recharger.
    - great BlackBerry accessories available for Dtek60 (cases, pocket, holster, chargers, etc.) except no dock / charging stand.

    CONS of the Dtek60 :

    - I miss the original OS7 and OS10 BlackBerry keyboard for accuracy in multiple languages
    - I miss original BlackBerry OS10 clock and alarms.
    - I miss the Z30 speakers
    - no FM tuner
    - no Paratek antenna
    - No variable colour message LED
    - PRIV and Passport SE had OIS on their rear cameras
    - PRIV, Passport SE, Z30, and Torch had unique BlackBerry design/build "DNA."
    - Complete BlackBerry accessories, including charging dock, available for PRIV, Passport SE, and Torch.

    These are my thoughts.
