Its not bad as you think im running 6.0.1 im satisfied with the priv its not running hot like before and performance has improved a bit... but if you want to improved its battery here are some apps which i use that helps a lot greenify, pixel filter, and hibernation manager... it saves tons of battery life.... after the update i notice it charger bit faster and not that hot as before.... but if you want to charger more faster just put phone in airplane mode... and lastly put the animation into .5x in the developer options... hope this helps....to all priv users like me trust me... ill keep this phone for a while every time i use it in public people turn their heads especially when i use the physical keyboards....

shaikbaazi, 28 Jun 2017Does blackberry priv supports VOLTE .??
yes , Turn on Voice over LTE and LTE video calling
Got my Priv almost a year now and I must say that the phone is fantastic. The performance is smooth, BB launcher is full of useful features and the slide out keyboard just makes sense to me.
Only problems I have is the battery and display. I do get a full day out of it, but the stand by time is terrible. On screen time is good though, can achieve about 5-6 hours depending on tasks but if you leave your phone untouched it will still drain. As for the display, it's suffering on screen burning because of the AMOLED.
Overall, performance is good and the phone looks stunning. My Priv always catches the eyes in a big crowd against my friends iPhones and S8's which is also cool.
I highly recommend this phone for business use, as the emailing and BlackBerry HUB works like a boss.
Hermes Hidayat, 18 May 2017It's 2017 and I bought the Priv(STV100-4) to go alongside my S8 Plus.
At first it seems weird... moreGood opinion. How does the email handling compare to that of the S8+ ?. Do you prefer using the Priv for all your emails?
Im thinking of having the same setup.
