As someone mentioned that the problem is with the chipset series S808 and S810, so I think Keyone is the better choice.
Im using blackberry priv flip cover but when using 3G or GPS its getting too much hot
I have 2 handsets of BB PRIV and both have problems. The first one has problem with the battery and the second one has problem with the power switch!!
Sounds crazy, but yes, I am facing this problem and the response from BB workshop is too slow. It might take 15 days to fix the problem. Really bad. Not worth spending on BB phones now.
Aditya, 31 Jul 2017Hi Guys planning to buy this phone, is it still worth for 2017 ? 1000%
This phone is so underrated.. Garnered several negative review but, hey have they revisited this device and make a review again?
Im using priv and it satisfied more than using those well-known flagship devices from a far more popular OEMs. I dont know what makes them cry. My only gripe About this device is the front facing 2mp camera. Luckily im not a selfie fan anymore so its not a big deal.
Nommy, 22 Jun 2017Guys please help, does all Blackberry allow you to buy BIS monthly? I want to buy Z10Nope not with latest os 10's
AnonD-687801, 28 Jul 2017Its not bad as you think im running 6.0.1 im satisfied with the priv its not running hot like ... moreYes performance is better after the update but still its getting hot after using 3g for a while or location service.
Its not bad as you think im running 6.0.1 im satisfied with the priv its not running hot like before and performance has improved a bit... but if you want to improved its battery here are some apps which i use that helps a lot greenify, pixel filter, and hibernation manager... it saves tons of battery life.... after the update i notice it charger bit faster and not that hot as before.... but if you want to charger more faster just put phone in airplane mode... and lastly put the animation into .5x in the developer options... hope this helps....to all priv users like me trust me... ill keep this phone for a while every time i use it in public people turn their heads especially when i use the physical keyboards....
