BlackBerry Priv

 

The BlackBerry Priv is a Hail Mary pass by the former tech powerhouse, hoping to revive its fortunes by adopting the Android operating system, resurrecting the slidable physical keyboard, and pushing a wealth of BlackBerry security and productivity...

Unique design ; Rich, sharp and colourful screen ; Robust productivity and privacy features ; Good for keyboard lovers

Below-average performance ; Expensive ; No fingerprint scanner

Does BlackBerry's first Android handset deserve a place in your pocket? We reckon so

Look past the logo prejudice, and you'll find an excellent, unique, and extremely capable Android powerhouse.

BlackBerry Priv review: A sweet BlackBerry and Android pie

 

BlackBerry has trodden a rocky path these last few years that has lead us to a point that some felt was inevitable. With BB 7 and then BB 10 not really capturing the imagination in the way that iOS and Android have, it was of little surprise when...

Camera performance, BlackBerry Hub, stays close to Android, good build, some really clever software tweaks

No fingerprint scanner, pretty big and heavy, physical keyboard might not be that useful, needs software optimisation

The BlackBerry Priv comes to the Android table offering something different and it delivers. The biggest thing about this handset is the QWERTY keyboard that's uniquely BlackBerry. That might appeal to those who think they can't live without it, but...

BlackBerry Priv review

 

BlackBerry's first-ever Android phone is excellent – it's just too late

Great screen ; Stock Android ; Added security

Patchy performance ; Pricier than competition ; Lacks premium build quality

The BlackBerry Priv is the mullet of the smartphone world. It's still business in the front, but now there's a party in the back too. It will divide opinion, but this is the best BlackBerry in years.

Blackberry Priv Review: We review Blackberry's first ever Android mobile, the Blackberry Priv, a beast of a slider phone with a strong emphasis on privacy....

Appealing blend of BB and Android ; Strong camera ; Sharp, spacious screen

No fingerprint sensor

The Blackberry Priv really is the best Blackberry phone of recent times, if not all time. By ditching its own OS for Android, Blackberry will hopefully tempt back lost followers and welcome fresh supporters to its fold, while the tweaks and bonus...

BlackBerry Priv review: The smartphone BlackBerry should have made years ago

 

The Priv is BlackBerry's last, last chance – and it's actually quite good. Does it matter though?

Despite my moans over the unnecessarily messy software and the weight and sheer bulk of the thing, there’s something about the Priv that I find appealing. Perhaps it’s seeing BlackBerry (at last) getting itself on the right track with its hardware and...

BlackBerry Priv review

  (Rating Hidden)

The BlackBerry Priv is the first mobile phone by the brand to run on the Android operating system, rather than BlackBerry's own OS. Despite the new OS, BlackBerry sticks to its heritage by including a physical keyboard, which is handy if you prefer...

Blackberry PRIV review

 

Definitely worth a look if you're a BlackBerry or physical keyboard fan, but for everyone else - they may go elsewhere.

Overall I must admit I was very interested in seeing what BlackBerry could offer with a good spec device paired with my OS of choice – Android. Having used BlackBerry devices in the past, including the more recent Passport – a strange square phone...

BlackBerry Priv: Is this the (An)droid you were looking for?

 

BlackBerry is dead! Long live the new Blackberry! With these words I bring to you the story of a new generation of Blackberry devices. They still offer you a great[...]

A great set of specs, beautiful looks, a handy keyboard and a great camera all mean that this device has been designed for the businessman. Whether Blackberry manage to salvage back their core user is yet to be seen, but with the extra security, this...
