Got my Priv almost a year now and I must say that the phone is fantastic. The performance is smooth, BB launcher is full of useful features and the slide out keyboard just makes sense to me.
Only problems I have is the battery and display. I do get a full day out of it, but the stand by time is terrible. On screen time is good though, can achieve about 5-6 hours depending on tasks but if you leave your phone untouched it will still drain. As for the display, it's suffering on screen burning because of the AMOLED.
Overall, performance is good and the phone looks stunning. My Priv always catches the eyes in a big crowd against my friends iPhones and S8's which is also cool.
I highly recommend this phone for business use, as the emailing and BlackBerry HUB works like a boss.
Hermes Hidayat, 18 May 2017It's 2017 and I bought the Priv(STV100-4) to go alongside my S8 Plus.
At first it seems weird... moreGood opinion. How does the email handling compare to that of the S8+ ?. Do you prefer using the Priv for all your emails?
Im thinking of having the same setup.

Neeraj, 18 Jun 2017Don't get the Priv for battery life. Mine sucked. Got a new one. Still sucked. My friend's bat... moreI am using one and I have never faced any issues . It gets me through a day and with rugged use (8- 10 hrs) You Ppl either bought faulty devices or u ppl are trolls.
Joe, 25 Jun 2017I've had this phone for about a week now, and I love it. I often spend a lot of time just look... moreIf u update their phone to latest phone and bug fixes, the heating issue will be sorted. It will take at least a month to settle down. As it is for any android device ( other than flagship ones with top end specs)
When Att installed the prim they used te one fom the blackberry prive which is the wrong size. Naturally they denied this as it has been my experience the ore ignorant people are he less eager hey are to lean . Usually I leave them faultless as everyone makes mistakes and we all must lean. . Lately they implemented the new forever accounting system. As in any arena one must explain it from the basis, not the highest level and expect positive results. I need to find the correct prim holder for my priv-3 as it otherwise will never work . it works marginally and the att employee would piss down my back and tell me it was raining!!
I've had this phone for about a week now, and I love it. I often spend a lot of time just looking at it. It's design is beautifully crafted. By the far the most attractive phone I've ever had.
Now I have noticed some problems with it over heating but nothing too bad. Aside from that, this phones amazing

My friend's battery life sucks too. I get around 3 to 3 and a half hours of screen on time. Also, the phone gets EXTREMELY hot doing even the simplest tasks.
i have a BB Z30 thinking of getting a Priv.. concerned about battery life as the Z30 is pretty good... anyone make this switch that can offer opinion?
Karunakar_12, 13 Jun 2017Has anybody practically tried if Blackberry Priv has USB OTG/host feature? Can we plug in mou... moreOTG works fine.
Connecting a Mouse gives you a cursor, as usual on Android.
Also reading Data off an external hard drive or an USB stik works fine! ;)
