Agreed, Priv is a really good phone. Only set back is non removable battery. Much more functional than any available phone in the market....
Everything about the PRIV is great...
Except for that BlackBerry decided to make the battery non-removable.

m, 18 Mar 2016my z30 was the best phone I ever used much better than s4 I used previously. Never lags, bette... moreAgreed. Z30 is a very good phone. BOS 10.3 is a great OS (even without considering it's age).
Too bad Chen came in and immediately gave up on BOS and touchscreen only phones.

I don't know why Chen, Blackberry or Facebook mentioned this as an option ( actually I'm fairly certain I do know...he wants BOS 10.x to go away :< )

I would suggest this. Uninstall the native Facebook app for Blackberry. Go to the web and find the latest Facebook app for Android (or maybe look on Amazon Store through BB Amazon app, might be there?) and download the APK. Once downloaded, install it on your phone. Say yes when asking about allowing install from unverified source (or whatever the verbage is to that effect).
No guarantee that it will integrate with the BB Hub, but it will be a native Facebook app instead of the web app.
Note: I have a Z30 and don't use either of these apps, but I use the Android version of Line (downloaded the APK from 3rd party website). Used the method described for installing the Line application.
I have been using Blackberry for more than 8years now,but my vassion looks old such that I can't replace it due to luck of suppliers at the retailer's shop and no one can take me out of this brandy type, can it be possible to have varieties of Bberry in my coutry Kenya?

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.
