Security updates have come out even faster than to Google Nexus phones. No other manufacturer comes close. However if your carrier does not push the updates, this does not help, so the best way to buy a Priv is unlocked so you get the updates straight from BlackBerry. Priv also has additional security on top of any other Android phone (there is a lot to this so research if this is important to you). Priv uses very close to stock Android which I prefer over Samsung's messy and overly complicated (but improving) TouchWiz. TouchWiz makes it hard for Samsung to release new Android versions in a timely fashion, so new Android versions take a long time to come out. Blackberry took even longer for Marshmallow to come out than Samsung, but I expect that this is because Android is new to Blackberry, but who knows for sure. Blackberry updates were very frequent with their old BB10 phones. Samsungs tend to be very well designed and pretty. Both have excellent cameras but I would say Samsungs is a little better. Note has the "S-Pen" stylus, and Priv has a slide out physical keyboard. Which of these is more useful is entirely up to you.
features are good but i wanted a phone with dual sim 32 gb model 3 or 4 gb ram....fast charging technology.....and a excellent quality of both the loudspeakers and calling speakers better than samsung devices
Awesome; android plus blackberry service...great specs 32gb memory 3gb ram 18mp cam and 5.4 screen display.
does it support android to use some apps like viber facebook and some which samsung alaw
Priv is a good phone especially after marshmallow update but it's pricy ( I don't know if there are any real deals now). I am using one it has almost a stock android. Only thing you have to make sure if you go for priv is to make sure you get the one with wireless charging. I don't really about note 5 , except it doesn't have an expendable memory.
Witch one is best
Blackberry priv (or) samsung note 5
Any one pls reply me I am waiting for buy....🙏
Got my Marshmallow update. Battery life now does justice to the spec, easily comes through a day of active use. Camera has become very snappy. Now we can use swype gesture both in virtual keyboard and hardware one. Overall very satisfied with the phone after Marshmallow update. Well done BB

Hi Guys ,

Is the camera improved , does heating issue solved or kindly share ur experience after update as it will help gsmarena subscribers to more insights.
abinayan, 26 Apr 2016Is Facebook messenger is working in Priv? like native android phone?Yes it does. After all Priv is basically an Android phone.
I like this phone, there I said it.
Given that it'll spend it's life in a case the plastic doesn't bother me as much as some people, I like the slide and qwerty keyboard - it makes it stand out whether you think it's unnecessary or not, it's an amoled fhd screen - which is all you need under 7" despite what people may say, it has a decent battery size/life, the chipset is outdated now but this is a work phone not a game phone and really the 808 will still handle pretty much everything you throw at it.
The only thing that lets this down is the ridiculous price. Even the BB CEO agrees. Cut the price and it could be the game changer BB needs.
Aster, 24 Apr 2016I have used this phone and sell it because of the unnecessary physical keyboard they put it in... moreYes you are precisely correct. . the physical keyboard is an overkill. .waste of material and adds weight unnecessarily. .
