    I agree with you completely. BB 10 is so much better for work. Don't really care about apps.

    And by work you really mean emails. Because specialised apps are absent from bb10.

    The OS10 for a start in short as well as PKB on top makes it perfect.
    Anything else on the market even if highly popular among most doesn't suite my taste nor needs, simple as that.

    Form factor of Classic plus OS is best for me for messaging. Tried the iPhone 7 for a month but feel like it takes a lot longer to get things done and i don't care about social media enough to put up with less efficiency.

    I came from Symbian, most recently Belle fp2 on a Nokia E6. I had a windows phone, and it had worse app support than bb10 does. Then I had a original moto g. And it didn't have an SD slot, and it was hard to get a day worth of battery out of it. Turned out it was due to android paging home. A lot. So I picked up the q10 from amazon. Better battery life, easily updatable software via autoloader or sachesi, surprisingly decent camera, and keyboard. Now this is gonna sound like blasphemy, but easily the best 2 keyboards on phones where nokias e series and blackberry. Yes the e71 and e6 were every bit as good as the classic and q10. But anyway, the added perk of android compatibility and hub integration put bb10 over android. And my moto g has cyanogenmod on it so even custom firmwares weren't enough. I enjoy this os enough that my birthday present from the Mrs this year was a unlocked passport. And immediately a friend of mine asked to take the q10 off my hands.

    I really like the call clarity and reception on my BB Z30. The ability to sync email every 5 minutes for non-push-supported email is also important for me.

    I was ready to switch to an iPhone until I saw that the minimum poll time for non-push email is 15 minutes. This is unacceptable to me.

    I keep my leap around for emails and calls, texts and use my dtek50 for apps. The keyboard, hub, file manager and gestures are unmatched I just wish we could do gestures on black Droid. Also compared to the dtek50 the leap is a tank.

    Not a big fan of apps. For me it is the form factor and gorgeous/high-quality design of the Passport combined with the incredibly intuitive and smooth Blackberry OS. Nothing comes close in my opinion. Especially the hub. I've tried and tried to go over to a Priv to stay current but find the Passport does everything better except for apps, photos and screen quality (Passport = really good but not amoledd). I just want Blackberry to continue to refine and support os10 so this phone can last me a couple more years.

    I'd really like to see facebook come back onto the os...but realize that won't happen. Same with native Snapchat and Instagram. Again...wishes.

    I also would like to see Blackberry give us a news app that aggregates news and pushes real time notifications to the hub. There are no news Apps with realtime updates for Blackberry with exception to NY Times - which is subscription based. Having a Google Newstand type app would be incredibly helpful for me. Another easy option would be adding alerts to posts on twitter feeds in the hub.

    Continue to support Blackberry travel and crush bugs...like the flickering text screen thing that wasn't fixed in 10.3.3.

    This is how I realize a real-time news feed in the Hub:
    1. Create a dummy email account (Yahoo or the like).
    2. Add this account to the Hub.
    3. Sign up for a service called Blogtrottr. http://blogtrottr.com. There are other services out there, but this is the one I use. It has free as well as paid versions.
    4. Set up the Blogtrottr service to subscribe to RSS feeds from the news sites or blogs that you want in your hub.

    The result is the Blogtrottr will automatically check RSS feeds and send them to the inbox of your dummy account.

    There is native options for Facebook and instagram. You can try Face10 or Facebox, and Igrann, Insta10...

    Depends what you mean by specialized apps. My work "specialized apps" for IC design don't run on Windows, MacOS, or android either. They only run on Linux.

    The Virtual

    Clean, simple, and productive interface. Everything feels like it's in the right place and works just as it should. It has no frills and just feels like a fully integrated phone operating system with everything connected --- it's not an empty shell for you to throw apps in. This feeling is all brought together because of the gestures, file system, and the flawless hub.

    The Physical

    I love the smaller form factors equipped with the smaller screen. Everything feels close and manageable unlike these mammoth touchscreen phones everyone else seems to have. The keyboard pulls BlackBerry even further away from the sea of sameness I see resting in everyone else's hands. The smaller size and keyboard also helps create really robust phones with biggest glass buffers and less glass to break.

    If anyone else can offer this, I'm all thumbs (ears). I will try out the Mercury for sure.

    One App called IGRann it is the only app for any phone OS that has the regram feature with auto stamp for original post on market. save photo...share photo, share video....all in a menu. I have a BlackBerry classic for the past 2.5 years...on ATt network. Last day I checked they no longer sell any Blackberry devices and isnt even a choice on their menus any more. that P's me off even more....and makes me stoic for bbos 10.

    android is fine....i have a lenovo 10inch tablet I use that on....the native instagram app just sucks.....and hate having to use a third party regram app.

    I am tired of the 3.2 inch screen...and with using the lenovo tablet the past year I am able to move on from the keyboard phone need.

    I have been pricing a Leap or Z30.....unlocked....so I can get the bigger screen.

    I will stay with BBOS for as long as needed.

    Seconding most of what has been said: Hub integration with File Manager and OS. Coherence in design and concept. Android is rather patched and greedy. In Blackberry you get what you pay for, in Android...you have to rely on apps for what a phone did natively on Symbian and BB. Android: Yees, externalizing the services, like ...erm, the Phone Log, yes externalize the SMS service: send message over 160 characters? Ah, no, only by MMS with the native app. Want something else? Try an app. Me: What??? Oh, Well, get used to it, It's Android. An allegory would be like hiring someone to turn on the tap water because natively you do it only right handed, and in this new world order you can't use your left hand unless having a certification. So rent/buy/receive an advert dependent app for that!
    I don't mind paying for apps, but not to "buttress" core functionality to this level.

    And secondly, I just discovered the greatest thing about Android: it is so secure: it allows almost complete control of the phone remotely without the user being really aware of it. Of course, through a very securely and well placed app. Please do watch this short documentary. I found it incredibly enlightening about the world in which we live and the world to come.

    To actually install cerberus as a system app you need to have your device rooted. Otherwise a simple factory reset will delete the app. So if you are using BB Android devices, you are safe from this.

    To be 100% sure than no such app exists if you buy a used device, you must re-flash the entire OS (which is not really that hard).

    I also use cerberus on my Android device. It's a very nice app.

    So the lesson here is don't steal things, and don't buy rooted devices if security is a concern. Anthony had to get a customized app plus root his own device in order to pull off his investigation. Furthermore I don't care what OS you're using - everything is an app, "native" just means "provided by OS developer" which Google does, it's the hardware manufacturers and carriers adding their own bloat that people mostly complain about. If you're going to complain, please complain with correct information.

    I'm holding out because I like blackberry, if or when it's over for real not just youngsters saying it's over for bb10 I will get an ubuntu phone. If I could I'd just load ubuntu on my passport when that time comes but that will be up to blackberry if they want to open their phones.

    I have a passport as a second device used only for email. I still like typing on it. I like the feel of BB 10 for that. I don't really need the phone. But I am just curious to keep an eye on blackberry 10. Niche as it may be.

    Just a great platform. Much better than android and miles ahead of IOS. The efficiency of BlackBerry os 10 is unfortunately not found elsewhere.

    On my passport, I rdp all the time to my desktop to run reports. I don't use my notebook anymore unless I have to do big spreadsheet.

    Its an amazing phone and operating system.
