    My Q10 is dying (broken charge socket, broken headphone socket). I'm in Ireland, the Priv isn't on any network here so it's 800 Euro to buy unlocked (and as they say, phioc that)

    If I get a stock Android and download Blackberry's software (eg Hub etc), what are the top 3 things I might hate or miss coming from a Q10? Assuming I somehow get used to typing on a touch keyboard.

    Would love to hear people's comments I think I'm railroaded into getting a stock Android, sadly.

    There is a physical keyboard on the Priv.

    Yeah but as I said, assuming I get used to the touch keyboard?

    And I should add that most of the apps I use on the Q10 are Android apps, but I do use the hub a lot

    Other than the keyboard and the fact that the apps you plan on borrowing from the Priv may not work quite like they do on the Priv, I'm not sure what you'd be missing. The curved screen, the supposed "security" that it can't be rooted. The possible continuing monthly security updates (not that my carrier Verizon has rushed out the March update).

    That is a ton of money. I managed to get a loyalty discount but it was still a princely sum.

    To the op unfortunately: BBM is the only BB app available for download for stock android phones. The HUB and other such BB apps are only available to priv users.

    You can download those on any Android phone now by way of Cobalt.
