    I was forced to go to android by my work. The BlackBerry is much much much better at being a pim. Some examples:

    Notifications can be centrally controlled on a BlackBerry. On android, every application has separate notification settings - and they ate all default on - so I either have to searching through every app looking for the notification settings or I get a machine that goes ping in my pocket. Fine for a kid, but I get 300 emails a day - I don't want to be alerted because it is raining outside or justin Bieber posted something on twitter. And every time my work updates the device, all those notifications are on again. BlackBerry remembers it's settings when I get a new phone, let alone when the firmware gets updated.

    Secondly, the calendar integration with an exchange server is a joke. This crappy thing seems to randomly alert me to meetings coming up plus or minus half an Hour from the time it starts. In 12 years of carrying a blackberry, I cannot remember ever being alerted late. This happens with android three or four times a day.

    Next there is the fu king keyboard. Holy duck what a price of ****. My BlackBerry almost always gets the word right and when it does not, a simple backspace puts back what I typed so I can correct it. The android thing just keeps putting back the same correction. It is so ducking annoying I give up and get tho crappy.

    And then there is the hub. The hub is a fabulous feature for which android has no answer.

    Lastly, the BlackBerry is not only a mass storage device, it is a wireless NAS, making it dead simple to get files or off of it.

    As for iPhone - it does not multi task and there is no wireless access to the file system. Hell, there is not even any access to the file system from a USB - you have to use iTunes. IPhone is a joke. The phone equivalent of buying a skoda because you like the color.

    I couldn't agree more!!!! In the 4-5 weeks I've had mine, I love my Passport and have no regrets coming back to BlackBerry. For handling 50 to 100 emails a day, nothing comes close.

    And I can't get Snapchat, Tinder, or Google Services to work perfectly on this phone, even though I know it's not an Android device. Such a piece of garbage, BlackBerry sucks!

    App junkies are mostly gamers and those are better served with Google Play Store for BlackBerry 10 because it downloads obb files and it offers in-app purchasing.

    I'd trade my Passport for a shiny new Skoda any day. Then sell the Skoda and buy a dozen Passports.

    I'm with you OP, and also a die hard BlackBerry fan. But just to be fair, the latest iPhones do multitask. A long press of the home button shows a screen where you can horizontally cycle through the background apps similar to how the PlayBook did it. It looks and works a little nicer than the standard Android implementation of "multitasking" or switching between apps IMO (well, probably since they got the idea from BlackBerry hehe).

    I used my S6 as my daily driver for work purposes only, (no games or social media) and my productivity level is still very high. I like that Samsung actually releases timely software updates. I can't say BB has any sense of urgency when it comes to resolving double typing issues, notification reply issues (all which I had with my passport). Another issue I had was with the battery draining cause their maps system sucked and I sideloaded Google maps for travel purposes. I got tired of relying on Dev team guys to fix BB software issues.

    Oh come on.. a little one-sided don't you think? And the Samsung version of Google Android is just perfect? Give me a break.. I have many friends at work with the latest Samsung's and their not "entirely" happy with their devices.

    For the most part BB10 is pretty damn solid!

    They certainly update and patch bugs quickly. Blackberry on the other hand take months to even acknowledge an issue if at all. And the another few months before an update is released

    But the Skoda had real problems starting on Canadian winter mornings. Shame. But kept CAA busy.

    And the Skoda double typed as I recall.

    Disagree wholeheartedly. Apple seems to have the worse bugs on release but they're the only one that can just push through any updates without the carriers putting up any barriers. Android updates are very few and far between.

    So let try to keep things into perspective..

    Not sure what reality your in, but I disagree with you wholeheartedly regarding a droid OS updates. The fact your even comparing OS continuity tells me your another BB user in denial. Tell those Dev guys to work harder to resolve your BB OS issues cause BB itself will take their sweet time!
