    I've been using BlackBerry since 2000. The black and white phone with larger screen. With an yellow button. That was too expensive for my end. But I had one. And that was my first phone, that phone is still live but not working till date, battery not available.
    Question is, we fools are loving BlackBerry so much but what we got from BlackBerry? They even about to stop their OS!
    I still love BlackBerry and again bought a BlackBerry Passport. Really blind lover of BlackBerry!

    I have been using BlackBerry devices since 2008. Since then no other device ever used. I have all the BB10 devices in stock. No complaints whatsoever. Now using the KeyOne and Motion as daily drivers. Times have changed a lot . It's android era and I am extremely happy with the performance of BlackBerry Android devices.

    Funny thing about "love"... It has a way of endearing us to tolerate attributes we might otherwise find irritating. ...just ask the wife... Lol.

    Personally, I'm no blind brand loyalist. I simply LOVE using the best tool for a job. Since my first RIM pager back in the 90s (can't recall model #) BB has generally provided tools incorporating features that efficiently collaborate with my pursuits. Features I'd grown to appreciate and "love".

    Features like comfortably sized form factor, exquisite PKB, trackpad, toolbelt, swappable battery, charging contacts, convenience key, collaboratively refined UI, etc, etc are what I "love" about MY favorite BlackBerry... My 9930... Lol.

    Reflecting on how few of those features apply to recent BlackBerry "hand"sets, doesn't encourage me to feel very "loved" by them, tho!! Lol.

    I use BlackBerry since 2011. First device was 9780 bold. I had many BlackBerry devices until today. And now I use Classic and Priv. But android is not so good, that's simply android with some adds by BlackBerry. Classic is my favourite. Really good phone, fast browser, BBM, mail client much more better that Priv, Blaq twitter client and that's all I need.

    The reason I loved blackberry was the red led light, but it's a common thing in every android device now. But the addiction that I got from curve 8520 since 2011, I went to Z3 then classic to keyone silver,keyone black then the PRIV and now the keyone bronze, it's one hell of a ride and experience. And I'll continue using blackberry devices if they gonna continue providing us with the products like passport, classic,keyone,priv.

    That should be their slogan now, since they basically weaned most of their former users off BBOS (the true crackberry) and BB10. Android on the Passport might have sustained the craze, but it's debatable.

    I never had a BlackBerry, never liked the 'looks' of it. It was all Nokia since 1998, then the iPhones since 2007. But all that changed last year when I stumbled upon the Passport... four years after it's launch is it?

    One look and it mesmerized me. Went ahead and purchased three of them... love this designing marvel. Now why I love BlackBerry(?) ~b'coz it is different!

    I chose BlackBerry as long as I can remember and have been loyal for the secure encryption.

    However, now with my PRIV this may be my last BlackBerry.

    The newer BlackBerry phones do not appeal to me and the after sales customers services is anyone guess. Furthermore secure encryption is now up to reassurance level with the other brands of mobile phones.

    Funny how Google/Apple hypnotized you to keep your eyes off the Blackberry Passport for 4 years!

    I used a lot of Nokias (incl. the Communicators and E-Series), Danger Sidekick, LGs, Samsungs and decided for BlackBerry with the Priv, a very good one in my opinion, then additional a Passport SE and a Classic because I believed in security and quality -both I am not convinced with TCL after more than a year reading the experiences here.

    Actually Android is Running as a VM not Native That's Why it Sucks using android apps on BB10 specially on BB Classic. If The Custom Rom is Made of android 6.0 onwards (I want to work on that ,But didn't found any useful Resources ) to run on Blackberry Device Then We Don't Have to change Our BB Smartphone . Google Played a Wicked Game of Google Play Services and Android Version Support , That actually kills using of old phones because there latest apps don't support and Android Studio really made people lazy (Drag&Drop) and Don't Develop natively (NDK) . It is actually a business strategy . no new API support for old phones thus we have to Throw old phones and Buy new Smartphones with latest OS version to get companies running . In this world True useful things are ignored and Instant Gratification Things are widely accepted .

    It definitely was, at least in case of K1. It had other benefits on the other hand. Smartphone is so much complex thing that it's really hard to keep everything working at least as well as in the previous model. But Q10's call quality is definitely much better, no doubt about that. As long as Q10 for formerly indented to save the company, they couldn't fall short in this too.

    Is K2LE any better reception than K2 ? I have a K2 but not activated, thanks to VZW limitations. My K1 on VZW is NOT as good reception as VZW Classic or 9930. BUT far better than my ATT PassPort... out in certain rural locales. Much depends on carrier. Just wondering about SE vs K2?

    The KEY2 is already an improvement over the KEYone, the LE is even better than KEY2, so you can imagine the improvement over the KEYone...

    Isn't the LE meant to be the cheaper, not as good version?
