I purchased this phone yesterday and I love it. I was definitely sad that they didn't integrate more bb10 be I still think that as a software it rocks but unfortunately it's not for everyone. This phone has definitely surprised me a lotbc I didn't know what to expect being and Android but I have fully enjoyed the experience. Wish more bb10 was o terraced but hopefully in the future.
Love this phone, well done blackberry waiting till the price drops a bit lol, am pretty sure this phone will sell like hot cakes, Blackberry's best phone upto date I don't know why people are bitching about the 2MP front camera, this phone is for professional people not for some random people who are selfie freaks.

opthizet, 07 Nov 2015You'll need a trolley to push such a BIG fone around all day! That's like two fones in one, wh... moreBecause maybe you can't see all the specs this phone has. And by the way each and every phone has a qwerty keyboard whether as software or a hardware. Atleast learn to think before you say. Probably you don't even know what blackberry priv is. And you're writing just for the sake of criticising. BE SENSIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!

With BB priv, I expect excellent build quality and superfast speed as other bb10 devices. My sincere advice to blackberry, enhancement of operating system. The notorious Android system hangs on most devices.
i feel it slightly over priced but still its blackberry totally worth it.
No radio/ nah. No BB os? next version I phone coming with andriod pre installed, mid range device. wow!!! Canadian Blackberry to sell it to Google.!
Front camera is 2mp but as like Samsung 5mp is same work brother.not selfi problem.
9jawizard, 08 Nov 2015Nice phone, but I can't believe that after all the nice features in this phone, you guys were ... moreBack cam more important.. oh my God did you see her. Oh I think I need a smoke. Oh hold on, let me take a selfie.
Can't stand selfie whore's
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.

tarun, 07 Nov 2015Big disadvantage is 2mp secondary camera otherwise it's a good device.Same feeling bro
