    Hi all,

    I have not used an android phone before but I am very intrigued by the Dtek60 as an upgrade for my old but awesome Z30.

    My question is: I know BB is selling the HUB and calendar etc... in the Google play store for android phones. If I purchased an android phone (Pixel etc...) and bought these apps would I have the same experience as the Dtek60?

    For example, do the apps provide the BB virtual keyboard? What about the white tab on the side of the screen that you can slide out that summaries emails, calendars etc... or is it just HUB and calendar?

    I like the Dtek60 but I am concered about the "softness" of the glass (how scratchable is it) and the giant stick out camera. The Pixel has a great camera and it is flush with the case!

    You get everything except the keyboard the apps work the same as they do on the DTEK60 just without the keyboard

    No keyboard, no DTEK. Those are the big differences.

    You get BlackBerry software free with your BlackBerry phone, why bother paying a lot more for the other phone and then have to pay for BlackBerry app's... I have no problems with the glass and I have had the phone since October 26, as far as the camera sticking out get a case so it doesn't stick out anymore... other people have bought this case below and say it fits great... https://www.amazon.com/Alcatel-Incip...UvbUpU12663121
