    Is there any difference in installing an apk directly vs sideload bar vs debug token + coverted bar? In terms of performance of the app, battery life and etc?

    The only difference in my opinion is that the piracy of Android apps is made easier. As a developer, I don't like how the things have gone downhill, but I can understand the reasons BlackBerry has for going this road. I am not so sure it will help them on the medium term, though.

    i dont think install apk file will be better than bar convert. i installed instagram bar file, work perfectly can upload record video. maybe 10.2.1 have a converter on system, when u click install apk file, it will convert and install instead of u convert manual before.

    I'm just glad I can install apk. Files. Never liked converting to bar files

    One other thing, will 10.2.1 come with unlocked runtime?

    So far that I know of its unlocked. I think they may stay unlocked especially for this apk download reason..
