I like my priv. Some of the BlackBerry features need a bit more tweaking for android. Eg pressing the hub icon doesn't save drafts and reset the universal inbox. It just takes users back to what they were doing. Also unfinished universal searches don't delete after the app is minimized.
Would be nice if BlackBerry added their browser and filemanager to their android devices. Pretty annoying that they've dropped web browsing to the android/ios level. Also sucks that you cant use the universal search for navigating to specific web pages like you can on bb10.
It is the best android device on the market whilst the keyboard is in use.
I have a Priv and also used Nexus. While Nexus is great and does some things better than Priv, I will still choose the latter if I have to do it again. I prefer something unique, and BB's productivity features are unmatched.
The phone is pretty average..
I've owned around fifteen flagship smartphones and this is the worst.
Buggy, does nothing special or different, none of the blackberry apps are usable or useful.
Oh and they are one of the least secure devices, publicly boasting how they are more than happy to pass on user details to third parties upon request..
Closest phone to a nexus. Turn off all of BlackBerry's productivity apps and you have a Nexus device. Of course the productivity apps make the phone way better than a Nexus I case you are wondering. My friends Nexus is still vulnerable to stage fright. Blackberry is not as they have the best Android security.
Juisu, 07 Jul 2016Sorry but BB Priv is overpriced product. Really, even Samsung Galaxy S5, S6 during time price ... moreWho said blackberry is not luxury, i have BB Priv and its one of the best phone available in the market right now. Please try to use the phone before criticizing it
Sorry but BB Priv is overpriced product. Really, even Samsung Galaxy S5, S6 during time price falls. BB its not luxury, they sell nothing if their products have same or even higher price then Samsung Galaxy S7 or iPhone.
Next thing its poor availability. In Europe, EU you can buy LG G5, Samsung S7, iPhone 6s in many shops and almost all mobile operators. Atm BB Priv its a bit old, price should go down and availability its crap.
