    Hi CB members who have experience with both BB10 and Android (Priv / DTEK / KEYone):
    For me, one important feature of BB10 is the ability to send/reply/forward emails in rich text format, almost like you are sending from the desktop Microsoft Outlook client.
    I provided some images for comparison using an Microsoft ActiveSync email account.
    I wish to know if the native/default email client on Android BlackBerry is also like BB10.
    Thanks!

    And even if it wasn't, since it's Android you have your pick of alternatives. Outlook, GMail, etc.

    Works fine no issues. Also the HUB has been well refined since first being launched for the PRIV.

    Thanks Rico4you. That screenshot shared by Heavens1 tells me that the stock email client on Android BlackBerry is the same one as BB10's. So I'm now less worried if ever I need to make the switch.

    I made the switch to PRIV working fine. Also keep in mind the constant app updates from BlackBerry. Still use my Passport SE but the future definitely is BlackBerry secured Android. Can't wait to see the KEYone!

    I use the hub on my nexus 6p. Also have a passport and had a z10.

    By its nature its the core of bb10 and is better there.

    But as Android clients go, I like it as well or better than all I have tried. Gmail, K9, Outlook, various stock clients like the LG one, and AquaMail.

    However the hub is SLOW compared to say AquaMail.

    So. Slow. But it is my favorite overall. I like it's look and feel. I trust BlackBerry and know the client won't change hands. Etc.
