  1. That slide and physical keyboard reminds me of my old HTC Desire Z, still have it and it still works.
    Loved that thing, even if it was a bit odd for the time.

  2. I switched over to iPhone recently but I really love the Priv, never owned one because I was never sure of it, but if Blackberry released a Priv 2 with the same design running current flagship or even current premium mid ranger specs I'd buy one in a heartbeat to use as a second phone.

  3. i found one today in a phone recycling bin at a grocery store, which is pretty cool. it works, and it’s cool, but it’s not very usable. stock android 6 sucks.

  4. This phone and an updated Z30 could have been a stepping stone to blackberry's come back it should have been a flagship premium made device

  5. ලංකාවෙ එකෙක් මෙහෙම හැදුවනම් ෆෝන්🖤 එහෙම නෑනෙ.උන් මෙලෝ රහක් නෑ.ලහිරුගෙ කඩේ එහෙම.අයියෝ සාන්ත ලහිරු

  6. My BB DTEK 60 wouldn't charge any longer so I pulled my old, beat-up BB Priv out, swapped SIM cards and have been getting great service out of it while waiting for my open-box BB Motion to come in. Priv battery holds a charge much better than the DTEK 60, can almost go a whole day without recharging.
