AnonD-474982, 11 Dec 2015Benchmarks are not useful. benchmarks are never useful, but it lags significally i trust bb's security and i trust they will fix the issues that are present in a few months and that is why i bought this im a power user and a huge keyboard lover so this was my only choice for christmas so i decided to get it i hope. people play with it and root/unlock the bootloader
Does not ship to DPO/FPO. Cannot try it out and therefore will not be considering it for our next upgrade.
They have done tremendous job this time but price is much high, should launch it's phone with attractive price and try to form new fans from android users instead of relying on old customers to buy it
im a huge blackberry fan. i have bb9900 and bb z10 and i love the performence in the bb z10....it has super cool bb hub, awesome keyboard and cute body....
but im not happy with this priv, because its run with cheap os called android...
No No No......come on blackberry..I NEED ONLY THE GREATEST OS CALLED BB.OS.........
Anonymous, 10 Dec 2015I had the phone before the update (decided to return it) and the main thing that bothered me w... moreAccording to BB PRIV http://us.blackberry.com/smartphones/priv-by-blackberry/specifications.html, There is Qi/PMA dual module chips wireless charging function was integrated with PRIV, however, it's available in US only.
It works by using inductive charging technology to allow your PRIV to charge without connecting a charger. No longer will you have to search for your charger and orient it the correct way just to plug in your phone
I seek PRIV Qi wireless charging case and transmitter on amazon, wireless efficiency whole kit maybe workable or you can consult your carrier before purchasing, hope it helpful.

My encrypted Galaxy Note 5 still achieved antutu score of 66,000 and basemark OS 2.0 score of 1650. Using Samsung Knox lowers the benchmark score significantly though.
Nope... see I'm not interested to pay a premium for a redundant form factor. A fairly well made slider QWERTY sure but on an OS already tightly done w/ a virtual keyboard? That much for 2 keyboards? C'mon....
Priv 2. Note killer. Yes w/ a stylus. And bigger batt. Get to work Bb.
Anonymous, 10 Dec 2015I beg to differ. Windows is a failed OS. Bought two Lumias and regret it.Two failed phones, and you make a generalization, huh - you are one unlucky fella. I wonder why I don't hear that from everyone I know who has a Windows Phone.
Anonymous, 10 Dec 2015Could've just used Windows instead of Android. Faster, better UI, secure and smooth.That would have defeated the whole purpose of moving away from BlackBerry 10 - low adoption and poor app selection
I'm quote hopeful of BB android, but evidently they still need some work. There's a chance they'll leave the smartphone market but I don't think they will.
