    I could find one new for about 270 cad.

    At that price do you think it is worth it?

    - I am aware that it might not get a nougat update.
    - I make full use of BlackBerry hub suites. I was going to pay to subscribe if I got any other android phone.
    - I also like using the BlackBerry virtual keyboard which is not available in any other android phones.

    And I own a z10, q10, z30, and a priv, so I would not mind getting another BlackBerry either :P.

    Absolutely. I've had mine 14 month's and it's been a horse. No problems. Battery *may* be a problem if your a heavy user. Take a long a good charger then and your good to go. Ive never had to charge mine during the day and my DTEK50 came with the mobile charger when I bought it. Good choice, good purchase.

    The only major issue is that Google will stop patching Marshmallow AOSP in the spring, so that will be the end of the BlackBerry monthly security updates - if they don't stop even earlier.

    A new BlackBerry Mobile Android device will get you (minimum) Nougat and Oreo and two years of patches.
