Steeped in potential, lacking in polish

Three things can be said about the PRIV: it’s overpriced, over-engineered and over-reaching. Granted, it does a hell of a lot of things right — from the screen to the total reworking of Android — but it falls short in terms of practicality and value for money. It’s a brave le... More

Three things can be said about the PRIV: it’s overpriced, over-engineered and over-reaching. Granted, it does a hell of a lot of things right — from the screen to the total reworking of Android — but it falls short in terms of practicality and value for money. It’s a brave leap from a company not afraid to stay true to its roots, but it falls short in execution.

the BlackBerry Priv is definitely costly phone to get in India for its specifications, even though it has a hardware keyboard that is not available on any other Android smartphones. The performance it good and the camera and the battery life could have been better. If you are into BlackBerry ecosystem, need a hardware keyboard and is ready to spend the amount, go for it.

It’s still worth a look if you do not mind the large design

If you had to ask me if I would recommend the Priv as a worthwhile purchase? That would be a tricky one to answer. For brand die-hards you will of course pick up the Priv and learn to love the open OS from Android. All the applications that are available will breathe fresh life into the Blackberry offering. If, though, you are not huge BlackBerry fan and just want the best for your money, then it’s still worth a look if you do not mind the large design.

The company really needs to make up its mind and build a better BlackBerry smartphone and not just another Android smartphone with some BlackBerry bits inside. In short, the BlackBerry Priv is recommended only to loyal fans who have been waiting for a Blackberry device that plugs into Google’s services, provided they have not moved on to Apple or Samsung already.

A step in the right direction

BlackBerry Priv

from Techgoondu (2 months ago)

With a great camera onboard, Android OS with little crapware, a keyboard (for those of you who still need or want one), memory expansion up to 2TB, the Priv is a no-brainer. It’s the best BlackBerry you can buy today.

A great smartphone with a few shortcomings

BlackBerry Priv

from Digit (2 months ago)

The BlackBerry Priv has a great display, cool UI tweaks and the keyboard is to die for. But the lack of a fingerprint sensor, average camera performance and the price will make you reconsider your options before investing.

The Priv actually comes across as a little old-school

Will long-time BlackBerry users be happy transitioning to Android, or will they lose what they cherish most? That's the unfortunate question that anyone still clinging to their Bold or Curve will have to answer for themselves. The Priv isn't quite the single-minded business tool that its predecessors have been, and while we understand the tradeoff in favour of versatility, the Priv doesn't do very much that other high-end Android phones don't already do. The massive advantage of native Android apps makes the Priv more attractive than BB10 devices, but not more so than, for example, the Samsung Galaxy S6 which now costs about half as much. In fact, without today's conveniences such as a fingerprint reader and a decent front camera, the Priv actually comes across as a little old-school.

Overall, the BlackBerry Priv is a great device. The display is crisp and not too big. The keyboard scrolling and the software tweaks benefit the user experience. The team at NotebookReview would also like to point out that there were initial inconsistencies with the keyboard performance, overheating, random reboots and camera speed seemed to have been fixed in a recent software update. This makes the Priv all the more attractive as a device.

An attractive and usable smartphone with good performance

BlackBerry Priv

from Phone Scoop (3 months ago)

The Priv is perhaps BlackBerry's most well-rounded handset. It isn't a perfect fit for everyone, but it covers many of the bases that BlackBerry fans need while opening up the brand to the apps everyone wants (Android, FTW!)

It is a great phone

BlackBerry Z3

(2 months ago)

Price and other specifications are also good. But drawback is lack of dual sim as well unsupportance of NFC and limited active frames.

Blackberry is back in the game with the Z30. The sound quality of the phone is excellent. Texting a is as good as any Samsung or iPhone I have tried. The Z30 excels with the reliable long battery life which is critical in an office setting. The web browser is as quick as any I have used on any cell phone. I frankly don't care if the phone doesn't have mind boggling screen resolution, it is a phone not a camera, and is more than adequate.

Great comeback for BlackBerry

BlackBerry Z30

(about 1 year ago)

Although mine only has an above average battery life, I found the HUB and swipe much more fluent than other phones I've had. The browser is very fast and it surprised me by the quality of the screen. All in all, I would defiantly recommend this phone to friends and colleagues alike.

BlackBerry Z30

If you are looking for a communication device rather than a camera then do not overlook the Z30. The upgraded platform is app friendly and I love the Hub, where I can get all my messages in one convenient spot. Most of all, being a Canadian, I get to support a national company.

About BlackBerry

Research in Motion, RIM, is a Canadian-based wireless device company famous for the development of the BlackBerry smart phone line.

RIM was founded by Mike Lazaridis and is based in Waterloo, Ontario. Before the development of the BlackBerry, RIM worked with RAM Mobile Date and Ericsson, assisting in converting the Ericsson-developed Mobitex wireless data network into a two-way paging and wireless email network.

RIM has gone on to develop many different BlackBerry devices, which have become the smart phone of choice among business and government professionals. So loyal are BlackBerry users that the devices have come to be known as Crackberries, a back-door joke aimed at users who claim they cannot live without them.

Major competitors include Apple Inc., HTC, Palm, Motorola, Samsung and others.
