Lisa Gade reviews the BlackBerry Priv, the company’s first Android smartphone. As you might expect from BlackBerry, the Priv has a slide-out hardware keyboard with embedded trackpad sensor and waterfall sculpted keys. The phone runs Android 5.1 Lollipop on the 1.8GHz Snapdragon 808 CPU with 3 gigs of RAM and 32 gigs of storage. It has a 5.4” QHD curved AMOLED display, an 18MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, dual band WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth, NFC and a GPS. BlackBerry has customized the OS with security in mind, and the hardware design is attractive and unique. BlackBerry sells the phone unlocked for $699 and it’s also available on AT&T in the US, with Verizon coming.

  1. hey lisa do you think the priv is a good phone im having a hard time choosing between a lg g flex 2 or a priv and im getting them in 2017 cuz it going to be my graduation to college do you thinks these phones will be cheaper in 2017?

  2. its a pretty good phone… but came late unfortunately. a little earlier.. and things would had been different as you said ma'am .. not a fan of physical keyboard ⌨ though..
    I would had loved it in a landscape mode!!? they should come with a better phone in 2016 for sure!!?

  3. Blackberry has designed some really nice hardware over the years. Imagine how successful they would have been if they had sucked it up and produced a really high quality Android phone around the time they launched the Storm. The field is really crowded now and it will be tough to come from behind.
