    So my first Blackberry was a Q10, which I bought in March 2014. I loved it!!
    A year later I got the Passport, which was even better, but unfortunately by Christmas 2016 it fell victim to the known antennae problem with Passports. Reluctantly, I went back to my Q10 and to be honest it has really grown on me again!! I love how well it fits into my hand and how the screen, while half the size of the passport's, remains a beautiful display in proportion to the size of the phone. Camera's still great, too!!
    What do you guys think? Anyone else using a 2013 BlackBerry device these days?

    I'm still loving my Q10 and loving the fact that I have two backup Q10s. Similarly, my wife!

    I started with a bold in 2014 and absolutely loved it. But I could see the writing on the wall; everything just got slower over time and eventually I was talked into trading up to an iPhone 5S. It was a decent phone but I found it to be a huge distraction and I hated trying to type on the VKB. I missed my BlackBerry so much that I ended up buying the Classic just before AT&T removed them from their site. I haven't looked back since. I use a small handful of apps so the "app gap" doesn't really affect me like some folks. I will probably pick up a new Q10 eventually since they are still plentiful on Amazon. I plan to stick with BB10 as long as possible. I even did the update to 10.3.3 OTA from AT&T. No problems at all.

    Hey hey I'm using one! This phone is awesome imo, I completely agree with OP! The size is perfect, I feel that phones today are reverting back to the size of the bricks people used back in the day.

    BlackBerry 10 is still smooth and functional for me, and the screen is awesome for the Q10. I dual carry an LG V10 and although the Q10 screen is a dwarf in comparison I find that I don't have any problem reading emails, watching YouTube, or shooting/editing photos =)

    Also one last thing, no android apps! Don't really need them, BlackBerry world is enough for me... for now anyways. OP I'm glad your loving your Q10!!

    I recently returned to BlackBerry and the Q10 was my device of choice. I agree that this little guy is quite magnificent in every way.

    Still use Q10s. Have two and treasure them. They are balanced for me. Physical keyboards, good size, and importantly replaceable batteries. Yes screen is small but adequate for communication which is what I require.

    Using a Q10 and loving it. Device's small size, FM radio, physical keyboard and removable battery make it a great phone even in 2017.

    Will probably upgrade to KEYone at some point but in no rush as I'll be seriously compromising by giving up some of the things I look for first in a mobile device.

    I personally am on the Classic and eagerly awaiting the KEYone arrival in the US, but I am very pleased to see folks still enjoying their Q10's. Depending on a users needs, it certainly can still be a heck of a device.

    @joshska are you using your Q10 solo as a daily driver? Or do you dual carry as well?

    Using a Q10 daily right now. Still works well for me in 2017. Z10 is my backup, although I'm going to activate a Classic as soon as I can get to the Verizon store for a nano SIM.

    My Q's are still going strong. As noted elsewhere, the size, the keyboard, the balance, the removable battery, and many more reasons make the Q a great phone for my needs.

    I have plans to add to my stock as it is clear, as has been for some time, that BB has forsaken the form factor. Truly am worried when the time comes and I have no more Q's what phone I will use.

    Just switched to the Passport this month. I quite like it, but view it as an oversize Q10. It's set up identically to my Q10.

    You guys are making me nostalgic for the Q10 and I just may pop in the Sim card from my classic.

    The Q10 is definitely a timeless piece of kit.

    Very true! The Q10 really resembles the old BlackBerry phones of the past that most of us remember them looking like and brings a certain charm that reminds us of that nostalgia as well as the powerful device that helps us get things done!

    Solo daily driver though I keep my Galaxy S3 at home connected to WiFi which is my preferred device for YouTube, Netflix and Instagram.

    Different SIMs, no? The Classic has a nano, the Q10 a micro. I have to go to Verizon today and get a nano SIM for my Classic.

    Nice!! I do something similar with my LG v10, although I'm leaving it at home more and more now. BlackBerry phones are underrated they get a lot of stuff done even now in 2017. Much more innovation than apple and way more secure and communication focused than android!!

    Umm.....Pete.....it looks like you have two backups for your wife, not necessarily two backup q10s for your wife. 😃 Is that legal?

    K, interesting way to parse that disclosure. I can't imagine anything/anyone that could serve as a backup for the unique person my wife is.

    Actually, I may end up with another Q10 backup as she is torn with the upcoming demise of WhatsApp on Q10 s.

    Why is whatsapp so popular? Definitely not a deal breaker for me to split from my Q10.

    I can see that, very good point however, Whatsapp can't possibly be the only way to communicate long distance. When I was over seas I was able to communicate with friends and family without to much trouble without whatsapp
