Are there any Blackberry users still left here? I know that it's rare nowadays but just wondering whether there are any holdouts?
BlackBerry Q5 user here. I wouldn't change it for the world. Best phone I've ever had.
Really? Because the Q10 my brother has to use for work is not even close to be good. Can't type nearly as fast as on a software keyboard and the touchscreen isn't accurate enough to be pleasant to use. Only advantage I see is the battery life, which could be due to less media consumption.
I like the keyboard, one of the winning features in my opinion. I do a lot of texting/communicating and physical buttons with the BlackBerry HUB makes it much easier than on any other phone. Apps, specs and the like that other people care about I couldn't care less about.
Its all about what you want out of a phone at the end of the day. I'm a keyboard sort of guy, not a touchscreen one.
BB10 emulates an Android environment to run APKs.
Their biggest problem is the management has no idea what they are doing. One day you hear they are focusing on enterprise and the next day they launch BBM sticker, without even considering to fix crappy BBM experience on iOS.
I thought stickers were a waste of time, but I checked them out today and they can be pretty cool. I actually bought one set, while I never bought a ringtone.
This actually makes money for BlackBerry instead of just "fixing" BBM for iPhone, when Apple forces you to use their notification system.
