To reduce heating and save battery life do the following:
1) Turn off "Location" in "Settings". If you keep it on, then your phone will continuously updating your location with Google. This means continuous battery strain, cpu usage "heating issues", and data usage. http://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-delete-and-disable-your-google-location-history/
2) Next, go to "Settings -> Battery" to see which apps are draining your phone the most. Some apps like to have a continuous sync or have constant push updates. This isn't a bad thing but know that it will eat up more battery life and, depending on the the frequency, may keep your cpu usage high. If you can limit the number of constant updates to manual or important/certain pushes, the better. Different apps will go about this in different ways but it is usually under their settings.
AnonD-557325, 06 Jul 2016Hi ihave bought priv few days before its good and un imaginabl and unique mobile but the probl... moreThe heat issue abated over days & updates to some extent... itr is qualcomm compatible... get a qualcomm xcertified charger & it charges fast... even via qi if you get a good one (i.e. samsung)...
Hi ihave bought priv few days before its good and un imaginabl and unique mobile but the problem which I'm facing is difficult for me to use over heating , battery standby time is low as 6 to 7 hours and it takes 3 to 4 hours to charge fully and I can't set the security pin lock every r time ,
Quite simply the best phone out there. My wife has an IPhone 6s and even she was disappointed. I've had Sony xperia Z1 and it was brilliant. Almost bought the Z5 premium but wasn't convinced. This BBPriv has blown me. Usability is amazing and play...well it is an Android so...best of both worlds I guess!
argy1959, 24 Jun 2016Hi bro, the blackberry priv support maximum ms cards or 2TB equal : 200 gb. Regards.Just saying, 2TB isn't more like 2000Gb... ;)
when battery is damaged buy another one instead of throwing the phone.we need removable battery and 20 mp camera plus dual sim.
I'm completely confused somebodies say the quality of privs keyboard is not good and priv will burn the hands during working
Is it true?
Which one is better honestly?
Simply the best off all. In the beginning I had the heating problem but after reseting the battery a few times,, holding power button with down volume button while connected to to the wall charger the issue was resolved. It's last me a full 18 hours of heavy use on a single battery charge. Love it. Go buy with confidence. It's the best blackberry and Android ever

Please make this phone smaller, lighter,thinner,etc .4.5" or 4.7" would be awesome,it would blow apple way far.

This phone makes the iPhone 6+ look like an oversized shiny calculator. 10 more Megapixels in the camera, too. Beastly RAM in such a small space, georgous display, and it's pretty light, too. Overall, its bloody brilliant
