Makes me wonder why people dislike an OS so much that they post extremely negative remarks about it, and then state BB is dead. Of course I know similar posts go out between Android and IOS users and we have all seen the negative comments about Windows 8, but seriously are these remarks necessary?

Don't all the OS's have some things in common. Didn't Apple complain that Android was a copy of IOS, and going further back wasn't there a little tiff between Microsoft and Apple over Windows and weren't both based on Xerox. Wasn't Blackberry the first smartphone (only with a keyboard), and what about all the early PDA's with touch screen interfaces pre Iphone which one could say were precursors to the original IPhone.
Seriously if we go far enough back I am sure we may find the original system (Abacus anyone). The important thing is that we get something we are comfortable with, the experts on Pinstack do a good job of reviewing the various phones, giving their take on the useability of said phones and then leaving the rest of us to make our decision, albeit at the moment there are not so many BB faithful left, so most of the reviews are likely to have an unintentional bias.
I on the other hand have still not upgraded (am now overdue by 3 mths for new phone), plus while my work phone was having major issues with battery life (OS6 9800) I did a factory reset, reloaded all the apps and have now tripled the battery life so cannot justify changing the phone. What's my point in this statement? My BB 9800's do all I require so why spend $100's on something new?
