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.
