The lat­est Black­Berry smart­phone uses an An­droid 5.1 (Lol­lipop) OS in­stead of its pro­pri­etary soft­ware and app store. This was gen­er­ally seen as a wel­come, yet prob­lem­atic change to Black­Berry's mo­bile lineup, go­ing by how the OS is now some­thing more ac­ces­si­ble with a thriv­ing app ecosys­tem, jux­ta­posed against the low­ered sense of se­cu­rity, which was also Black­Berry's big­gest sell­ing fac­tor. An­tic­i­pat­ing this line of thought, the com­pany and its phone mak­ers im­ple­mented a few key fea­tures from the orig­i­nal BB10 OS to show­case their ca­pa­bil­i­ties, man­age the pub­lic's ex­pec­ta­tions, as well as to ad­here to their mantra of se­cu­rity above ev­ery­thing else. With­out fur­ther ado, we look at some Black­Berry fea­tures that's made bet­ter with An­droid OS.
