so it means before 16 months,when BBOS was alive,Samsung KNOX has beat everyone Ios,windows and BBOS.so its not too bad to have.

Senators and staffers will no longer be given BlackBerry smartphones and will instead receive the iPhone SE or one of Samsung's S6 devices." - 7/5/2016, recent one
What's your argument now for all of Android devices being so insecure? It seems that Samsung KNOX is still very secure, and Windows is soooo secure as you say that no one uses it! HAHAHA

Look for more recent reports if you want to get an idea of what security really looks like now.
It's Windows > iOS > Android
(left BBOS out because it's not going to be alive for much longer)

Android, in its current state, is nowhere near the security level of Windows/iOS/BBOS. That's why, as I said, respectable companies and all other organizations with a properly working IT department will never allow Android devices to connect to their servers and/or services. I wouldn't even put my personal details on an Android device. The only ones who do it are those who don't understand technology and don't know how Android works.

Even if you want to transfer music to your Windows phone, you won't have to connect it to a PC. It's all done via OneDrive - the music player will either stream your OneDrive music or download it if you want to.

Respectable companies (with a working IT department) and governments never use Android, as it comes with too many security risks. It's always Windows, iOS or BBOS that are accepted by them.

Enterprises and Governments have no issue using Sammys so I don't see security as the issue. In fact, if folks truly cared about security, MS and BB10 would have sold well.

Samsung pay uses billions of dollars which is in Android software too. Windows and IOS both missing basic things a user needed. Like a file system. IOS is notoriously dependent to iTunes. I like Windows than IOS. Dude.. Android is a full OS than half baked OSes like IOS and Windows. You don't need a desktop computer when you have a descent Android phone. Can you say the same about those two? Never. IOS is highly optimized because you can't do anything in it.Now open your eyes and tell me... you know I am right... I had all those phones.. So I know.

So yeah, they've made the OS a little bit more secure than the standard version, but it's still way behind the other two operating systems.
Android is good for multimedia stuff, and it also does an almost decent job on other areas. But it cannot compare to Windows when it comes to security, productivity, stability, reliability and advanced interface features, and it certainly cannot compare to iOS in terms of optimization, apps quality and ease of use.

Blackberry is known for their software for being the most secured. If their is any risk in OS they wouldn't suggest to buy it for loyal blackberry customers. Have you even seen that phone? Stop saying things you don't know....
Kind of useless in the business environment, since it's running on Android. That entry-level OS is full of security holes and bugs, so no serious company would consider buying these handsets.
If they were to release this in a Windows version too, that would've been a much better phone for productivity and business stuff.
Be aware of shipping!! And note the link at the bottom on lacking security!!!
On the former they required a whooping us$45 for NON-express shipping (I bought one)
...And remember that there are a high risk of about 35-40% EXTRA on top of that in customs and fees for handling customs... So the £200 ended as £300 before it reached my doorstep...
But still well below the UK retail price
But ALSO note that there are NO security- NOR Marshmallow-updates available currently, but there MIGHT be in the future:
One of the major points in getting a BB should be the tighter security, so really a drawback that the security- and 6.0 updates might never be available for non ATT-users!!!!
It should be noted that it comes with all kinds of international (soft)key-layouts and vocabularies - even Danish. And yes there are even ways to get the national Danish characters on the physical keyboard too.
