    I wonder if my Cobalt Blue Classic will retain value as time passes? I don't care either way. It's a BlackBerry I'll never part with. Update the Browser BlackBerry and I would immediately consider going back to it. 😎

    Who needs a notification light when my watch gives me all notifications ? I don’t even need to pull out my phone, I just check my watch, I can even accept meeting invites right on my watch and keep on going. Keep your Notification light that still needs you to pick up the phone to action anything

    You can install BB Hub in most Androids from why I remember.

    Battery life is an area BB fell behind long ago, pretty much every mid end and flagship since 2017 has large batteries with fast charging that can easily do 2 days, depending on usage of course.

    DTEK features pretty much exist in the latest build of Android and iOS, with controls over what apps get access to as well.

    PKB and Rubber Back, you can definitely have those.
    That smartwatch has to be charged daily as well. Just another thing to think about.

    I'd rather have a simple LED than to have to carry a separate device on my wrist that will barely last a day lol.

    These notification LED "replacements" are hilarious. Each and every one of them that has been mentioned are either added costs or battery hogs.

    I agree with you about smartwatches, but AOD does not add cost and is not a battery hog on AMOLED screens. On regular LED screens, sure.

    Lol, nobody said a smart watch is simply an LED replacement, and nobody said a smart watch needs to be charged daily.

    Depending on what you have the Huawei Band Pro 2 lasted me something like 1.5 weeks, the Apple Watch due to me having it syncing Outlook, all my notifications and set to Full brightness I charge it every 3rd day or so as it also works as my fitness tracker. The more expensive Garmins etc... can also do over a week or so.

    It just so happens that it also makes an LED notification light irrelevant as it goes above and beyond a simple light that you have to be in a position to see the whole time, while bringing a whole lot of other functionality with it.

    The only things I want flashing on my Tank Francaise or Tiffany wristpiece are diamonds. Over and out.

    If it had been the BlackBerry Watch.... I expect they'd have a different view.

    Oh yes, without a doubt and it would need to have a PKB, so something like this with Android Wear OS

    The brand is living its worst days probably along the last 18 years. Day by day, BlackBerry value is diminishing. We already lost the huge value of a unique operating system and the hardware made by BlackBerry Limited.

    Today, I think these are the remaining features that I will miss if I ditch my Key2:

    - Definitely, the gorgeous physical keyboard.
    - Dtek app. I guess it is very unique and useful.
    - BlackBerry virtual keyboard was amazing before the latest update. I used to love it, but I really don't know why the keyboard is a big mess rightnow, at least for me.
    - I also feel safer with BlackBerry Secure software, but I don't know if it is more secure than Samsung software, for instance!
    - I don't use the hub or other BlackBerry apps regularly, but still love the phased out Power Center.

    What about you? Where do you see BlackBerry value?
    What BlackBerry feature you really need?
    Do you think your life will be harder if no more BlackBerry devices?
    You do realise application updates won't be halted by Google anytime soon right? That is the one thing most users of android never factor in when considering a "hardware upgrade" (replacement). While we cannot root our devices, the updates won't stop, application-wise.
