for me I can say, that mostly the possibility to make real full system backups and to create a backup of every app with Titanium is the most important reason, getting full root access. For me, that is mandatory!
NOTE: there are many (!) variants of the KEYone - and so many variants of what's out there. NONE allow root. That goes against the very thought of being "secure" -
I know, the my hope was, getting a sudo installed, when a bug in Android would make this possible. Anyway I will not get a KEYone, because I do no like the device very much, mostly I do not like the current keyboard, nor the rounded screen.
but heck, your Q10 doesn't really give you root access - all you can do is use the leaked versions of whatever BB10 is floating around.
You are absolutely correct, BB10 means no root and mostly no backup of internal data, like SMS or app-data that do not support any backup from within the app.
I do not like this and I don't want this again with my next device. But right now, I didn't found an successor for my Q10. It's currently just the perfect device for me.
Maybe the "KEYtwo" will be a more interesting device, at least the keyboard should be much better, it seems to be similar to one in my Q10. But again, no root access available ...
