    I miss the peek swipe. And that I could use the side button for a flashlight whenever I wanted and didn't have to worry about activating the screen!
    For a while I was using the Jolla phone powered by Sailfish OS. I believe they had the peek swipe thing figured out best.

    The flashlight was something that pissed me off from day 1 because I always had to fumble to unlock it then swipe down to hit the button. Lots of hand gymnastics if you were carrying something and had to one-hand it.

    Right? I can't be the only crackhead out there who has obsessively removed and replaced the battery door on their BB during a long boring meeting!

    I would add a feature I don't see mentioned so far. Picture size reduction. In BB10, you have the option of resizing a picture before you send by email. No such feature built in to Android- the 4 models I've tried anyway. Iphone?-- don't know. There are a few apps that resize but they are not as flexible or slick as what is built into BB10. Android users don't seem to understand why I would want that. With ever increasing megapixel sized cameras, it doesn't seem fair to send multi megapixel attachments when the BB10 resize did a super job of reducing size by 80% plus. I really miss my z30 but with the ever poorer BB10 browser support for sites like nytimes.com, I needed to move on. But I'm irritated every day by all the features I no longer have -- mostly enumerated in this post.

    On my Passport I use native app called Doo from BB World (still available) and having flashlight on and off associated with double click of power button. Works like charm even when the phone is locked, no need to unlock first, swipe down etc. On every BB10 device probably the same.

    Still miss BB Maps. The visuals were basic and easy to read, alternative and traffic (re)routing were by far the most accurate outside of a stand alone; the timing of voice turn-by-turn instructions was perfect too. But what I really appreciated was the absolute minimal data it used.

    I tried Here Maps recently, made by Tom Tom who supplied BB with map data, and was sorely disappointed.

    Here maps has nothing to do with Tomtom AFAIK. It's originally Nokia developed, ovi maps, now on its own.

    Headless Torch was a paid app by the dev Burning Platform and is not available anymore unless you previously purchased it.

    Why not use doo from BBW? From inside the app go to Button Shortcuts/scroll down to Power/Double Click/select Quickly start/stop flashlight. Works well for me. Or you can experiment with practically any other button combination/setting.

    I already had Doo, but hadn't tried anything out. Now I followed your advice, and it is awesome!!! Wow!! I can't believe how easy this is!! Will have to check other features as well! Many thanks!!

    Only you can validate the decision, a lot depends on your particular use case, if it works for you then it's a good decision.

    You already know the limitations of BB10 since you’re still using Classic until it broke. Are you asking if Passport hardware makes sense? It’s different layout that many love or hate. Personally I hate it and prefer Classic over Passport if back in 2016 or so.

    Biggest issue with any BB10 hardware is the devices are old from component standpoint and most available now are used. We’re not talking parts sourcing like Cuban automobiles but you get the point

    We can only hope that BB10 hardware support will be half as good as that for vintage cars in Cuba!

    Well, most Cuban automobiles are vintage US cars, and these are well catered for as far as I know!

    Nope - they make up a large number but Russian and Chinese imports now make up the largest segment of cars in Cuba. Still around 50 to 60 thousand pre-1960 American made vehicles which are all privately owned.

    I’m not criticizing the Cuban ingenuity but merely recognizing the monumentous efforts required keeping a circa 1950s automobile running without parts readily available.
