I'm considering upgrading to this phone when my contract is up.
Just one thing I need to know though...
I'm finding that many modern smartphones cameras do not pick up infrared light produced by the LEDs in remote controls, etc.
I work with IR systems quite often & 'depend' on a camera's ability to 'see' this light spectrum.
Does anyone here know if their Priv camera is responsive to this light?
Asking to borrow customer's phones because my Nokia 650 doesn't pick it up is embarrassing to say the least.
Great phone! but i will be upgrading to their new highend phone in october. I don't think i need a physical keyboard anymore.

DG, 19 Jul 2016Amen man. This phone is a piece. People who say they aren't havin those issues are just as bad... moreThese things were true, If you update to Marshmallow you wouldn't have any of these. I have a Priv and I don't have any of this. If you are still facing these issues then you ppl are having a defective product. Please replace the phones.

People who say they aren't havin those issues are just as bad as the people who defend any other item they like. Overpriced oven. Glad they took time to really make a splash. Chen.

BlackBerry PRIV can take SD cards up to 2 terabytes, not 256GB.

I think it's time for blackberry to make a lighter and a smaller screen with about the same features and power like the Priv

IOS is better version of android. The best thing of BlackBerry 10 is BlackBerry Hub that can gather all the notification. You will not miss even single one emails, messages, WhatsApp etc and you can track it back 2) contact - you will automatically merge the contact together, android, you have to do it manually 3) Calendar - BlackBerry 10 will notifify you promptly and will silent the device automatically during meetings not like android and iOS. 4) system will not crash like android 5) virus protection, seems that, BlackBerry 10 cannot being attack by virus like android. 6) The fastest email ever when tested with i5 laptop, Iphone and android phone. Do hope that, BlackBerry will be persistently being used.
I like BlackBerry 10 very much based on all the advantages listed but why most apps doesn't support BlackBerry 10
for those wants to buy this device, I've using this device for 3month+ .. so far it has been GREAT.. well? things that I love from this device is the almost pure nexus like experienc just disable the hub and the performance has been consistently fast.. definelty a + for the performance and UI... rear camera has been solid, it has "good" lowlight capability that outperform the 6s's... aand it got WB,AF,EXP/ISO,shut spd manual mode .. it is only shame for those that takes a lot of selfie, would be dissapoint.... speaker is not the loudest ,, but its front facing!! its a different story for the headphones ,it is one of the best sounding on a smartphone... for you that doesnt mind a fingerprint scanner/mediocre front face cam.. I would recommend this phone, since the price is 400$ right now!!!!longlife blackberry
we can and able to change our devices and the os-es in its.
why must i to buy new phone for whatsapp, there are a lot of programs to send anything.
or, why must i to change to android for just whatsapp, when i think that it is not secure?
Just to clarify, Priv will be able to use whatsapp, because it runs on true Android OS, not a sideloaded version, that the OS 10 used to access android apps
If you read the whole of the review that whatsapp sends you, it explains it all.
Hope this helps. (I currently have a Z10, and am looking at having to move as well!! Would prefer to stay with BB too)
80% people said android os is not safe, any one can trace the android phones, is it true?
This blackberry priv is os android, is it secured?
I likethe design of the phon ebut while using the device it is really slow not hangs a lot
