    What about battery efficiency ? I was pretty unimpressed in my short time with BB10, while Android's power management has come a long way since 4.3 days
    In my experience, the less Android apps on a BB10 phone, the better the battery life.

    Well, my attitude is that, if someone wants Android apps they will run much, much better on an Android device instead of in an old emulator stuck on Jellybean on 5 year-old hardware!

    BB10 was never intended to run Android apps in that emulator beyond 2015.

    The best thing about BB10 is that is isn't Android. Trying to use it as an Android device is fine for tweakers who like to play with their phones, but is just silly to me. I run BB10 for what it does better than Android, not to imitate a four year-old Android Jellybean Phone!

    Right, but you know that you can’t just single carry around your Z10 these days...

    Maybe you can't. I can and do most of the time. I don't have any business critical apps that don't run on BB10 from BlackBerry World.

    My KEYone is mostly a toy for me. I use it so that I can support others who rely on Android. I also use an iPad for the same reason.

    The two devices I can't live without are my Z10/Passport and my Win10 Laptop. I don't go anywhere without both of them.

    If you're so reliant on a BB10 slab, why not at least upgrade to a Z30 which has better battery life I suppose (and OLED screen I believe)

    Several easons:

    1) I prefer the Z10 screen in daylight.
    2) The Z30 is larger, and smaller is better for me.
    3) I'm on AT&T, and my Z10 and Passport both have all the right bands.
    4) The Z10 has swappable batteries so battery life isn't an issue.
    5) The Z10's performance on native apps is as fast as I can possibly use. The Z30 offers no practical performance benefit.
    6) Why spend money on another BB10 phone when I own two Z10s and a Passport?

    The two benefits for me of replacing my Z10 with a Z30 would be

    1) FM Radio
    2) USB OtG for an external DAC.

    But my Passport already offers both of those features (hough I only use my Passport occasionally).

    People still using Android on BB10 are obviously sacrificing both performance and security.

    That said, if I had to choose between my BB10 phones and my KEYone for my work phone, it wouldn't even be a close choice. BB10, without a single Android app, is dramatically better for me as a work phone due to its superior MS Exchange integration and UX.

    Yea, the hub has yet to be replaced. They definitely run better without Android services running back grounded, taking extra RAM, and battery life.

    I've found my happy solution with my Classic, Note 9 and TMobile. I pay $10 a month for a SIM that I added to my classic that is essential a duplicate of my primary number (digits without the digits app). I get calls, text and of course email on my classic and keep my note 9 in briefcase. I use that for expense reports, Google news feed and travel apps. My Classic handles text, email, contacts, calendar, and calling. I love the smaller size when on the go.

    I do this, too. I'm considering using my KEYone on WiFi only because I get all my time sensitive info on my BB10 phone.

    Not a bad idea. You always have the Hotspot! BB10 certainly handles email polling a heck of a lot better than android does. Absent the OS, I don't understand why we can't have a device with a solid phone, email and calendar experience that can take a tumble without the need for a fancy shockproof case.
