It does heat up a little when on it for a long time, doing at lot of different tasks. However I haven't had it heat up like it was before, when I first got it. Now even being charged it stays cool, even when I am using!
Preli, 04 Apr 2016Blackberry does get slower over time if you dont do a soft ware upgrade all the time !!!!Yes that will happen if you are using your grandpas BB.
apple is way better than blackberry if you are gonna go for an expensive legit phone. for me id rather buy a samsung or an apple.

I am samsung user with latest models in hand.
But this phone is special because it is a summation of the modern tech, thou not the latest.
It has more than sufficient processing power for mail, apps and games, even I get the latest specs, I feel the returns are not significant.
This phone as a curved amoled with screen brilliance of latest android, and I can fully enjoy the screen with slide

aj, 23 Mar 2016BlackBerry priv o samsung s7? Which one is better?HI I think blackberry is better cuz samsung gets much slower in time but blackberry doesn't.
This is a really good phone, the price is very high and the front camera is below the quality expected for this flagship level phone, but it is a BlackBerry which runs on Android which is amazing in itself. The screen is just awesome, and though I buy Blackberry for their security and also the physical keyboard, the virtual keyboard is SO good that my friends with Apple and Samsung phones download the Blackberry virtual keyboard as it is admittedly the BEST.
Also, Blackberry is keeping up with its promises to make changes and patches/updates to the software vs. many phones which after a release will take months to do so, or they never even do it at all. This has been something that PRIV users are really liking that the software team at Blackberry is really supporting the PRIV. Things will get even better for this phone once Marshmellow is released for it, as Lollipop 5.1 is an older OS that the PRIV ships with.
The hardware is really great, quality built and feels good in hand, it is genuine Blackberry quality. So once they slowly get these phones into the users hands and get more feedback, the updates to the camera software, phone software, app software, will just keep tweaking this phone to perform better and better.
I could not decide between Apple and Samsung before to replace my BlackBerry Q10, but it seems the PRIV is the best of all worlds. It runs Android, it is BlackBerry hardware, and I can feel that it is a secure device to use as government agencies, medical, political enterprises are still all using Blackberry for secure phones. I guess people just don't care really about privacy anymore or phones getting hacked, but when we begin to adopt this attitude, then you may as well leave your front doors unlocked and your keys in your car. Our data is extremely vital and important.. you see entities like Google and Facebook just harvesting our information so they can resell it to advertisers, and law enforcement use the same data as well as government to build a profile on you. For that reason, it makes sense to have a secure phone. I don't care if Blackberry users are a dying breed, this is still very good hardware but again, just the price is the main issue. If Blackberry released this phone in the $499-599 range, they would have killed it for real. But because of the price, people hesitate. Now they've expanded to 4 more countries (34 total) and Verizon has picked them up, sales numbers should increase nicely. Reviews from purchasers all seem quite positive, so read some and check out this phone.
The Canucks still got a long way to go to before being able enough to compete against Apple and Motorola.

I just ordered mine :)
Performance it's a mid-to high level phone, but it has a very cool keyboard.
Worst case you have 52 shortcust, and a touchpad if you don't like the physical keyboard.
Most secure Android.
I just received the Priv, Is it possible to send and recive emails while on the phone ?
