The major problem with BB is most of the Apps are compatible only with Android or IOS...
blackberry sucks. more innovation please. please get rid of the qwerty thing for gods sake
Does not it have a document editor? Only viewer is written here. Do anybody have any idea, how it's possible to edit documents on this phone? Or I have no chances? :)
I wonder, why all good phones always have at least one detail, which makes you not to consider it the best one and not to buy it?..
This phone is the best one for business people, because they have to write a lot and therefor, sure, this keyboard is very convenient for it. And at the same time, it doesn't have document editor! What will one type on this "convenient" keyboard, I wonder? :) Only sms and mail? Was it so difficult to understand, that editing documents would be in a high demand for potential buyers of this phone? :)
The same story with Samsung galaxy A 9. It has a large screen (6 inches) and good specifications, what is very important and convenient for people, who need to work on documents, because you can see your doc on large screen much better. But NO! :) It doesn't have a document editor as well! :)
The same story for computer mouses - one can find lots of them for gaming, but never for office programs. You just have to modify a gaming mouse for office work and assign it's buttons for office tasks, but even this isn't possible with all models of gaming mouses.
Nobody thinks about business people, who need the Technic for work, not for entertainment only... :)

Ronnie Scheepers, 25 Feb 2016 What is the Life span of the sealed battery?After I removed the 4 tmobile bloatware apps, battery lasts 1.5 days with moderate use. If I run google maps and mapquest for 8 hours and a bit of other web stuff, I need to charge it at end of the day.
As long as it can install different types of apps am happy but let's say Shareit apk file kick Bluetooth off

Ok, first time ever blackberry user with the priv (my friend responded "Oh, I didn't know this was 2005," when I relayed how I purchased a blackberry).
A few things, I'm not going to compare the android experience to the Blackberry OS experience because as I said, never used BB's OS, so unfair to compare...
As for it running on android, it runs very well. Now, it definitely lags at times, but not very noticeable. But people need to understand the company just transitioned into an entire new operating system. For the first time, it runs damn well. I bought the phone fully expecting lags and minor issues (especially at the release), but all in all (and keeping expectations within reason if it being a first time android for BlackBerry,it runs very well.
Ok, another thing I want to point out is durability. Yes, BlackBerry is known for this, but despite seeming to have a more fragile screen and overall premium feel, I've dropped it (w/o case onto hard tile floor and literally NOT one scratch; I can tell you now, if I had dropped an iPhone from the height the BlackBerry was at, not only would I guarantee atleast a Crack, good chance it doesn't make it without a screen shatter). So, while I was nervous at first, I was rest assured quickly that BlackBerry still knows what they're doing when putting a handset together.
Next, battery life. I'm having a real time hard with this. Obviously it depends on how much you use the phone during each specific day, but I still can't give an accurate assessment of the priv battery life after owning it for around 3 months now. There are times where it gets through the day and even into the next morning; but then there are days where it's just about dead by 8/9pm. So obviously usage and what apps are downloaded are the key factors. Overall though, the priv (on average) usually gets through the day and starts running low on juice probably right before bed.
The keyboard. Do I really need to say anything? It's a Blackberry Physical keyboard. For the few that don't understand what I'm getting at... You won't find a better keyboard on any other phone. And if you just can't see yourself going back to the physical keyboard after years of touchscreens, the priv offers a pretty damn good touchscreen keyboard too. But honestly, the biggest reasons I moved to blackberry is their famous physical keyboard and the DEATH OF AUTOCORRECT, and in that regard, it delivers above and beyond.
Blackberry also does a great job of integrating their apps from BlackBerry OS into Android (BBM, the hub, security, etc.).
Overall, this phone doesn't disappoint, and if you are deadset on getting a blackberry, the priv is an easy choice. I've already rambled long enough, so I'll let you guys just contemplate the text above. (I could easily go on, but unlike me, most people have lives, so I'll end here).
samer1970, 18 Feb 2016battery life is NOT incredible ! this is the main disadvantage of this phone. Turn off all the sensors, then see the battery life. It works good.
