    Dom7, I went looking at phones today, and I'm leaning towards either the Samsung note 9 or a Samsung S10+ as a possible replacement for my motion.

    I was wondering about the loading up of the BlackBerry apps (hub, keyboard...) and was wondering how close it would be to the motion in their use.

    How do you find it compares? Exactly like the motion, close to it????
    It's great so far, though there are a few things you should know.

    1. You have to sideload the keyboard. Not hard, but you have to install colbalts app to do this.

    2. The keyboard sits low on the screen. I find myself missing the spacebar and hitting a letter instead. Just gotta get used to it

    3. I have not figured out how to access password keeper from the keyboard. This has been a bit painful because the password keeper is not accessible on Chrome browser (though it is on firefox). Password keeper is accessible through apps though. Someone may have figured out how to make the password keeper accessible from the keyboard on this forum though.

    4. Mic on BlackBerry keyboard is not available. It's crossed out. Perhaps somebody on the forum got it working, but I haven't.

    5. No Dtek app. This is the biggest difference, but Android Q will have its own version of enhanced privacy features so this will come down the line if you have a S10.

    I love the phone. Battery is motion like and the camera and screen is great.

    I totally agree. I know several people who have had a phone with water resistance and it's been fo a dip and they never worked after. The only phone I ever got wet was my DTEK50 and it was a full dunk in a creek. Dried it out and it worked fine. So, really it's no guarantee that a water resistant device is as good as they say it is anyway.
    It Dtek 50 sucks ,the CPU otac- core capacity (sluggish) can't do much.

    Samsung has a feature called "App permission monitor" which is similar to DTEK/Android Q permissions.

    I don't think this feature exists anymore with Samsung S10.

    Weird, it looks like they might have removed it. Maybe in anticipation for Android Q?
