Upgraded from my Q10 to the Priv.
One big issue. I a male with what I'd like to think are average size fingers, and I had a hard time typing the top row of the keyboard. The top part of the phone interferes and made it uncomfortable.
Once I got past that, I had another issue. Blackberry Hub. Crashed everytime I tried responding to an email. Updated software. Did a factory restore. Twice. No help.
I didn't wait for strike three as my window for return on Amazon was closing. I sent it packing.
Back to the Q10. Dreaming the Mercury will be better. Keyboard looks to be comparable to the current layouts, and hopefully the software bugs will be hammered out by then.
At first I was bit skeptical about buying this phone because there are many other Android devices with similar specs available at a lower price. But after I tried this device I fell in love with it. That slide out keyboard is an absolute delight to use. I saw myself typing much faster and comfortably on it. It's undeniably a beautiful device and my opinion to anyone who is still apprehensive about buying it just go ahead and try it you would just love it. Hands down it's one of the best Android device available in the market.
The battery life of my Priv is just worst, I bought it 3 days back, yesterday I charged It to 100%, I did not even make a call nor even touched my cell and after 2 hours the battery was showing 84%. Without even using it, the battery drains automatically.

Ive had a google phone and an i phone for work. All that time i had a bb. Im going for the priv after trying the others and comparing. I use it for business not puppy vids on you tube. Its a real business tool and it just makes my life easier. Thanks for keeping at it RIM.
I just switched from BB-PP to BB Priv and it's an amazing phone.
According to Cnet, the next edition is not a purely original BB phone. BB's new DTEK50 is a Chinese made phone comes from TCL, the manufacturers Alcatel and it's a carbon copy of Alcatel One Touch Idol 4..!
