My Priv dates from 2015 and it's starting to die. Overheating more, slow to function and short battery life. Obviously time to replace. I've been BB since the beginning and am loath to change. What is the best option. I like the camera, android system now, large screen. I know I have to give up the tactile type pad. Cost not an issue

SUBASH , 13 May 2018Dose it support dual sim It supports tripple sim LOL
Started out as a great phone with a physical keyboard ! I was elated , but then came one of the fastest declines in usability/performance declines I have ever witnessed within a year it was overheated and I had to get a new one from the store.
And even to this day I'm still using it , and it has to be the slowest phone I've ever used. If you want longevity I would steer clear.
using it for a year now .
scroll sensor on keypad
front cam is just 2 MP
heats up a lot
no Gallery option

Great phone. I've recently bought gone back to this phone and bought a new one for super low price of £169. Went back to the priv because phones seem to have become all the same and boring and this one is a little different with its slide out keyboard. Yes it gets a bit warm and stutters if too many apps are open at the same time but the battery life I find is acceptable, the camera is decent (especially the 4K video) and the backlit capacitive physical keyboard is great to type on. The only major downsides are the old version of android and the occasional performance hiccups.
