Vishal, 04 Sep 2017Overheating issue in india as i am using blackberry priv at &t. Totally wastage of money. ... moreDear Vishal,
I am quoting you -
"Overheating issue, Totally wastage of money, the other stuff is really really bad, the battery life is about 2 hours of regular use on 4g"
Are we talking about the same device? battery - 2 hours?!!!
Well, I wonder. See my review from today.
I use PRIV for over a year and a half. Beyond all doubt - this is the most favorite smartphone of any smartphone I have ever had.
I did not have unpleasant experiences with battery, heating, and so on. The beauty, the solidity, the speed of response, the usability - all make this smartphone great.
And there's also an important bonus - since I've been using it, I've had no desire to change to a new device every six months / year - the device delivers all of my needs with exceptional efficiency.
And a last personal detail - strange as it was, as time passes, more and more like this device.

Everything is good like design, curved screen, physical capacitive keyboard etc. But the bad thing is battery, draining fast, heating up while charging or video watching or playing games.
A good smartphone with bb goodwill..
Best camera,,,front camera is good but not great
Very good built and design
Keyboard is great
Battery is not that great ...but in this days it is not an issue
A little bit heavy
Missing some new features of 2017
Is it still worth in 2k17 Sept
My answer is yes
In India we can buy it around 20 k which is 300$;

Ian, 31 Aug 2017Where can i buy this phone model here in the Philippines?lazada
that problem was solved long time ago
just update and reset your phone.
Procs: Over all a good model. Useing it last 5 months good battery life for 4G is normal.
Cons:Not for gaming purpose.Got heated immediately when you start playing games on it.
Overheating issue in india as i am using blackberry priv at &t. Totally wastage of money. Camera is really good but that is the only advantage of this phone. But the other stuff is really really bad as the battery life is about 2 hours of regular use on 4g. No doubt design is very good and the keyboard is also really nice. But this things only can not make this phone better. Please don't purchase this phone. There are many other smartphones available in market in this price range such as samsung s6, s7, s7 edge. Please don't waste money on bb priv.
muhamed7994, 27 Aug 2017is this phone is still worth to buy now ?
will it be upgrade to nougat ?
every one is compla... moreHi,
I've just bought my one around two weeks ago. I gave up my iPhone 6S for it. The main reason was for the physical keyboard as for work I am required to reply back to long emails etc.
Honestly speaking despite it being an old phone, I absolutely love it. I mean there are some small issues such as Snapchat freezing but I can accept these issues. I mean it is a device that's been designed for work purposes.
Anyways a phone I definitely recommend if your looking for a device that can work around your work life
