Maiven, 07 Feb 2017Bought a Priv on Amazon from Mastertronics, same day the phones heats up, used it for a few da... moreHave you upgraded it to Marshmallow? I've heard that resolved the heating issues for a lot of users. I've also heard that the Facebook app can cause overheating.
Hey guys. Need your opinion about priv. I have an iphone 6s and now want to change it with a BB priv. Can you tell me do it or not??
Bought a Priv on Amazon from Mastertronics, same day the phones heats up, used it for a few days and it keeps happening, i send it back, they said they checked it but it was fine, and thats why they charged me 20% restocking fee, so if its fine why do you need to restock? Also i posted a review on Amazon but it got deleted, so dont trust their rating, since they delete the bad ones anyway. I guess they didnt delete the one i put on facebook, because its still there.
But other than that, the phone on itself is amazing, too bad i got a defect one because i loved it so much.
The design - not too big - touch & keyboard
Camera - makes amazing pictures
Can log in with your gmail and all your information syncs (i had a samsung before)
I bought an Iphone now and you can sync your data at all from Android to Iphone is a pain in the ass...
Battery life - good except it heats up and dies
I have been using Priv since October, I haven't got any problems and it's so striking to people, I get to feel like I'm driving the latest Merc when I'm around people using it. I was a big BlackBerry OS10 fan but yeah the Android 6 upgrade is as smooth if not better. The battery life is exquisite. The camera is marvelous. The only thing I hate is the fact that you can only play music on "Play Music" of which you can't use shortcuts anymore as we could on all previous blackberry's. The hardware keyboard feature always makes people go crazy when I flaunt with it lol but can't deny the fact that the buttons arent as smooth. It's an elegant phone in a nutshell.
Crackmasta, 30 Jan 2017haha no wonder it lasts 3 days, what happens when you use the highly advertised number of apps... moreMainly i used the phone for music, call and text. And sometimes fb and fb chat. I have an ipad so why would i play a games on a small screen on my iphone. Then why would i play youtube or online stuff when there's a laptop? So obviously i am not a heavy user that's whay my iphone last that long.
I have been using Xperia Pro MK16 for the last 4.5 years. Now, I think it is finally giving out. So, I need a new keyboard phone. I can't see any other option beside BB Priv. Do you think it can do the job?
Anonymous, 30 Jan 2017try iphone first before commenting. you may right about what you said but not all iphone sudde... morehaha no wonder it lasts 3 days, what happens when you use the highly advertised number of apps available =P
Hermes Hidayat, 29 Jan 2017Lmao IOS 10 doesnt lag.but kills your iphone with 30% battery left hahahaha.try iphone first before commenting. you may right about what you said but not all iphone suddenly died when the battery is 30%. i have an iphone 6s and im using it for call, text and sometimes facebook and ista and it goes 3 days without charging but in most cases it last for 2 days. even do it reach my battery at 30% it still usable
I changed iphone 6 128gb to BlackBerry priv. The Main difference bettwen there Phones is The system... Android 6.0.1 often laggs. On iphone i had had ios 8.3. Quality of iphone system was awesome in comparence to android. It was my big mistake That i have change iphone to BlackBerry. There was 1gb ram but i could running on 10 or more sposób. Now while i was running two apps (snapchat and Messenger), Phone was lagged. The biggest adventage of BlackBerry is fast charging and incredible camera. There are just only adventage. I regret That i have changed iphone.
I was sent a software upgrade to BlackBerry 10.3.3.1463 for my 3+ year old Q10 phone. Since then I experienced better screen responsiveness and it feels like a new phone.
This will bridge the gap quite well until the Mercury come out, which will be my choice of next phone. I just wished it would be also available with BlackBerry software.
shazz, 26 Jan 2017guy's need ur suggestion. Which is better! Iphone 6s or Blackberry Priv?????Please choose the IP. I'm not a big fan of Apple, but I get tired of the priv. Many people out there and I have experienced many troubles from the hardware itself. It can be so hot for no reason, the screen starts to lag out within 30 min of playing game, and the battery drains really fast. They don't include the charger in the box. I got it charged fastest with the samsung charger. This is my first bb phone, and I won't buy any phone from them anymore. Just my opinion, you can research for more, GL
guy's need ur suggestion. Which is better! Iphone 6s or Blackberry Priv?????
