Anonymous, 10 Nov 2015Dude this phone is amazing It's just you are facing with any problem.Dear I can understand the camera beep thing may be only in my unit, but software! do they have any justification for not putting a native gallery app and a file manager for users personal organizing of folders and other data. when you install third party software and give access to all your documents will you call it a PRIV? No blend, hub is not the same as of bb10 ... crapy keyboard. if you think its like passport or classic its no way near as good.

this is long over due, blackberry going android is the best thing they did to save the company, phone is over priced for me but nice design, BB bringing back the slide and Samsung bring back the flip, smh we need new ideal in this business but all together nice come back BB

imohsin, 10 Nov 2015secondary cam 2MP. WHAT?Ipads now days don't have a 1mp camera.A higher front facing camera means more bandwith is used when doing video calls.
KayKay Kay, 07 Nov 2015Dear #Blackberry if you want comeback and be market leader or Samsung killer then you will hav... moreYou really have brains my friend. Lets join hands and start manufacturing a phone as per your specifications. With you as the chief tech advisor, our product will be a real hit and a samsung killer.
forgot to mention the virtual keypad is the best what i have seen till this very day! its absolutely fantastic, best best best! very neat and elegant! unlike the physical keypad.
Before you blind Buy this: Please Read this but don't trust until you go hands on with this experimental phone:
I was in love with this, I bought it and sold it in less than 48 hours;
Before the Hijacked reviewers lure you! just go play with it and decide if you like it.
Hardware: The Screen is great! decently bright
The Sliding mechanism is average no way near premium I refer to nokia 8800 sirocco as premium.
The keypad is no way near Q10 or Classic or Passport is out of Question, well its the worst of blackberry keypad i have ever seen after torch. keypad scrolling is too fast and not uniform at all.
when slide up this thing is huge! when closed i have big hands so could moderately operate it with one hand. power button on the left side is inconvenient. the sharp bottom left edge hurts in the palm. speaker is good though but i am afraid the pores will be filled by dust soon as the matt rubbery layer loves dust.
Software: i cant differentiate if its a nexus with a blackberry logo! following are the observations:
No File Manager, No Gallery to view media files: No Blackberry Movie Maker. Hub is nothing like bb10. No BB Blend.
No Built in voice Recorder, bb wants us download third party cheap software and talks about privacy?
Camera!!! wow Schneider certified ... a Hoax! there is a feeble tone when the camera starts and this beep continues as long as the camera is running there is a half millimeter area on both the edges of the screen showing a thin line it gives a look like there is plastic coating ending on the glass edge... that refraction phenomenon of pencil dipping in water thing.
i wonder what has chen been doing all this time!
I am really disappointed sorry guys I have just posted utter truth, you go see it and check. they want us to download 3rd party software and while installing they want access to all our files and then blackberry calls it priv?
this phone is amazing.its agile if it was touch screen i would probably hate it but since it has keyboard i put my heart to it. i hate android but this phone made me love it.
really the best phone than the iphone and a samsung I really loved the storage and trusted hardware love u john chen
Nice job! I want to see next priv with no hardware qwerty keyboard. Just full touchscreen experience with slim body and big battery capacity. Just throw all the best hardware you can get into next priv device. On the software maybe you need put some OS10 skin top on android OS. That would be nice.
