    It is for me. I have used BlackBerry exclusively since 2007, before that it was a Sony feature phone. I will still be using bb10 though as my work phone is a classic, but for the first time ever I will be using an Android as my personal. (I'm scared )

    Not sure. I used android before but disliked the experience. I am in love with BB10 UI interaction. I lean in favour of BB10.

    No. I have a backup /travel Moto G phone. I am very familiar with Android already though I prefer BB10.

    That said I am very curious to see what BlackBerry does with the HUB. If I buy the Priv the Z30 will become my backup/travel phone.

    I was like that too and actually had to sign up for an Google account over the weekend. Believe it or not there are all kinds of settings that carry over to everything that you use that is Google related about granting certain ads permission, permission to use your pics and other information where it actually didn't seem that bad.

    Before I knew about those settings I had all kinds of pop ups and ads on my Mac screen. Once I did some of the tweaks most of them went away

    I feel pretty confident once I went into those settings about permissions etc.

    Like it's been said before if it was as bad as everyone is making it out to be there would be nothing but lawsuits floating around

    If I get it - I'm waiting for actual use cases to be expressed here on the forums where I can then ask a ton of questions - it would be a first for me personally, but we've had android in the house since 2010. My son had a Galaxy S2, and now has an S4. AT&T finally updated it to Lollipop a couple of months ago, so I've had the chance to check it out - even if it was heavily covered up with TouchWiz.

    Yes it will, assuming we have a good hub, blend, and they make sure the device is more secure than the other android stuff. Used BlackBerry since 2007, tried the iPhone for a year and came back with the z10, then z30.

    The Priv will be my first Android PHONE as well, been using blackberry ever since I was old enough to understand how to use/take care of a phone. I previously had a Galaxy Tab 3 and somewhat liked the whole Android OS but then I sold it to buy my Passport (Definitely worth it).

    Passport SQW100-1/ with ZERO issues!

    I used a handmedown Moto Atrix 4G for a few months, then bought a used Galaxy S4 Active, which I never used as my daily driver, but mostly to have something to refer to when helping out my dad with his Samsung Galaxy something (Ace?).

    Gotta say that the S4 Active felt much nicer than my friends S4, and... since I barely loaded with anything,.. it has always felt really smooth and snappy. However the sound is terrible compared to both the Z30 and Passport.

    Anyway, I've liked BB10, but always interested to try and learn something new. The Priv looks like one of those gadgets that will not get boring too quickly.

    If I go Android.. it'll most likely be a NEXUS devices as that is really the only way to guarantee updates.

    It will replace my Nexus 5. Should be much longer battery life, and I really like having the keyboard with touch and the full length of the screen at the same time to read what I am replying to in emails.

    First time Android for myself. I've seen and used Android on devices close to me to know that I didn't want anything to do with it. The Priv on the other hand is an Android device by BlackBerry. It changed my perspective on having Android run on my primary device. I will stick with BlackBerry as long as they make phones, they've never disappointed me with an upgrade.

    However, I just got the SE so I've already done what I can for 2015. If 2016 doesn't bring a new BlackBerry 10 I'll be buying this thing I think. On the other hand, I might go for a Classic if the Priv is selling enough to warrant a new Android device by BlackBerry. And then the answer to your question would be no.

    It won't be my first android device. I had a Samsung Galaxy tablet that was tolerable at best and I currently carry a Galaxy S6 as a back up device that I picked up on a whim, but when the Priv comes out I'm hoping it will be the only device I carry on a day to day basis.

    Haha. I've never owned an Android phone before but i basically had all the iPhones from 3G thru to 6 (except the 6s now because im not sure if i really need it). Good thing about iPhones are they get the best resale value ever. Take a look at eBay, people would buy even buy faulty iPhones. My Blackberry Z10 used mainly for work tho, i've got 4 work emails and the hub works best for all that type of stuff
