    To be honest, had this fix come earlier when I had not yet sold my Titan, I would have kept it longer and actually removed the pre-installed blue screen protector film and other plastics lol

    Well you can get one again, only 10 bucks off. You might want to ask them if you can get a second one if you want it. The phone is just getting better and better.

    Three things I don't want on a phone:
    1) Large size
    2) PKB
    3) Android

    I'm very glad PKB fans feel like they have options. I wish I did. Sigh.

    If you grab an S10e, at least you'd knock out one of those three things.

    Just install the Hub and BB keyboard on it and you're set.

    Decent battery life (sure as hell better than the ZedTen)

    Up to date Samsung software and support

    I would have even suggested using Nova launcher and the BB10 icon pack but the Android 10 gestures only work with Samsung's stock launcher (which is pretty bad, can't change icon pack)

    Options we "can't refuse"? Lol. Supersize seems the ONLY option, these days. "Any size we want so long as it's large...or larger"?? Lol. Buying a compact car in the 60s was easier... Lol.

    Yeah. I'm just boycotting at this point. In terms of OS and hardware, mobile stopped increasing my professional effectiveness in 2014 or so, though some great apps have been released since then that I definitely value, so it's worth having Android/iOS devices in my life for specific uses.

    At this point, I am reducing my risk exposure and increasing my effectiveness by sticking to a simple, efficient workflow, using only a handful of trusted apps and paid services, and locking all my accounts down with hardware-baed 2FA.

    If BB10 failed, and I absolutely had to buy a new device tomorrow, I'd get an iPod Touch and a WiFi hotspot to carry around for when I couldn't use WiFi/VPN.

    I've stopped using my carrier issued cell number for anything at all, so I just need data at this point. I have two VOIP numbers and a phone forwarding service that lets me hand out masked numbers to services and marketers.

    It's a shame that we have to add layers of complexity to maintain our privacy, but the $500 or so I spend a year for my personal domains; VOIP services; encrypted email, calendar and notes; and email/phone/credit card masking services is well worth it. Besides my approach has reduced my monthly cellular bill from $250 a month to less than $80, so I'm way ahead.

    Yes no question, one has a fully tweaked OS, the other you are on your own. Also we are spoiled with all of the Blackberry hardware tweaks as well. But that said if you never used a Blackberry than this is a great phone.

    You can theme it however one prefers. The S10e is a very nice, compact device offering. Fast, secure, great screen, sufficient battery and excellent camera.

    My S9 was/is too similar to Even consider. I miss the flat panel and size of my S7 for a slab. Curious to see how 10 and One UI 2.0 is on my S9. I actually like One UI 1.0 so if improved may consider going back from BE BlackBerry KeyOne to see how it goes. For a slab my S9 is pretty darned good. Especially with HUB Suite and BlackBerry VKB.

    Stop it.. Miss using my Cobalt Classic as my daily. Damn I had so many people marvel at that when in use.

    BlackBerry needs a partner that pays for and updates their devices. Such a darn shame most of the Key devices have been so poorly supported and updated, especially for the $$ when sold new.

    In today's competitive landscape poor support is a nail in the coffin.

    Unfortunately your Android is not in the form factor you prefer.

    You may think marginally different with one on Pie or 10 with newer swiping gestures and additional security/privacy in the OS.
