Nice phone, but I can't believe that after all the nice features in this phone, you guys were soo dumb to make the front camera just 2mp. Dats insane man. Had it been you made back camera 12mp or better still the 18mp as you did, and front camera 8mp or even 5mp at least. It would have been perfect. But you rather focused on the back camera and expect me to give you a "nice job" or "thumbs up" hell never... Yuuuush!!! That's so disapointing mehn. //not happy at all. Better do something about that and make us happy.
You'll need a trolley to push such a BIG fone around all day! That's like two fones in one, who still makes physical qwertys?! I couldn't give the "priv" a second look.
Dear #Blackberry if you want comeback and be market leader or Samsung killer then you will have to come out of apprehension and snobbishness. Nothing killed your place in market but the overconfidence. Priv could have been a flagship killer but its not.
Front camera should be more than 2MP. At least 5MP wide angle, aperture 2.0.
Rear Camera is good but can improvise with xenon flash or ring flash and fast aperture.
Keyboard should be good looking at least similar to BB Passport.
Weight should be under 160gms.
Blackberry doesn't have to be black always, could've used royal and classy metallic colors.
At least should have some unique intuitive feature (eg: iPhone has 3d touch, note has stylus).
Add Fingerprint sensor and secure payment options.
Dual Sim, dual standby feature to cater majority of market ( One plus and Xiaomi providing high end features with dual sim).
Make it waterproof, dustproof and shockproof.
Offline Navigation with pre loaded maps.
Type C connector.
Wireless and fast charging.
HOME button in keyboard.
Develop a modern and good looking UI and redefine Android, so that people hate looking into their stock android.
Experiment with marketing, invest in out of the box digital campaigns and make it a power statement, develop a cult around it. Sponsor target market. Support it with a market of fancy accessories.
You gonna need it all. You have all the potential to comeback and rule. With these things people will buy at any price point. But do not make a mistake that you did with Porsche design. Use 18K gold or premium materials instead of Porsche logo. There are enough buyers out there with money.
Just give them what they want, not to sell what you want.

Everything got a fine direction to compete but 2MP front camera in selfie crazy era. U must be kidding.
definately gonna get maself one,but as for nw was still enjoying ma PORSCHE DESIGN P9982 .cant wait to get ma hands onto that beautiful babie
tarun, 07 Nov 2015Big disadvantage is 2mp secondary camera otherwise it's a good device.Same feeling bro
Really miss you bb nw u go right direction I m happy with your decision I love this phone
Comparable in dimensions to the LG G3 but 193 grams versus the G3 at only 149 grams. So the Priv is a heavyweight phone - a deal breaker for me - must be that keyboard, something I would never use.
The most elegant smartphone of the year my next phone instead of note5
Could easily be the best all around 2015 flagship phone. They mixed in solid components and then add a touch pad physical keyboard which can be programmed shortcuts and used to scroll. Lots of innovative Blackberry features and apps give it a totally fresh android experience. All this for less money than a note 5.
I really want the priv however the flex issues in the near futures is what I'm worried about
great spec and If BlackBerry Priv comes with dual sim i will pay one immediately
