Everything you need to know about the BlackBerry Priv

Blackberry PRIV

Why choose the Blackberry PRIV?

Blackberry's first device powered by an Android operating system, the PRIV maintains all of Blackberry's finest security and productivity features with the addition of Android's easy-to-use interface and innovative apps. With a fantastic camera certified by optic experts Schneider-Kreuznach, and a battery that can last over 24 hours, the PRIV is a device unlike anything Blackberry have ever released before.

Blackberry Priv Design

A hybrid of the classic Blackberry and the very latest features in smartphone design, the Blackberry PRIV merges an impressive AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with a hidden QWERTY keyboard. Using SmartSlide technology to hide under the 5.4-inch curved edge screen, the on-screen keyboard and physical keyboard are both incredibly easy to access.

Measuring 5.79 x 3.04 x 0.37 inches and weighing 192g, the PRIV is an ultra-thin, sleek device. The handset hosts an impressive HD screen with a resolution of 540 pixels per inch, producing highly detailed, sharp images with super vivid colours. To keep the screen protected from bumps and scratches, tough Corning Gorilla glass has been used.


At its core, the Blackberry PRIV boasts a powerful hexa-core processor, with 3GB of RAM and a qual-comm snapdragon 808 chipset. Multitasking and streaming videos are certainly not a challenge for the device, and it can perform for longer with a non-removable Li-ion 3410 mAh battery, which provides up to 73 hours of music playback and 24 hours of talk time.

32GB of memory is included with the PRIV, but if more storage is required then a microSD card can increase the memory to over 200GB.

Blackberry Priv Camera

With an 18MP rear-facing camera certified by Schneider-Kreuznach, you can find qualities integrated into the Blackberry PRIV's camera that are often only found in professional devices. Super-fast autofocus, a dual-LED flash and a f/2.2 lens ensure moments are crystal clear even in low lights.

A handy 2MP front-facing camera is ideal for taking selfies and the PRIV features a special Selfie Panorama Mode, allowing you to capture wide-angle shots and pack more into each photo.

Stand-out features

A handy slide-out keyboard makes the Blackberry PRIV portable as well as practical, and classic Blackberry lovers will adore this innovative feature. The handsets quick charge mode restores the battery up to 60% in under 30 minutes, meaning less time is spent waiting for your phone to come back to life and more time is spent taking advantage of the PRIV's fantastic 18MP camera instead.

Round up

A first for Blackberry, the Android powered PRIV provides efficiency, durability and a beautifully designed interface on a high-spec screen. It returns to the past with the slide-out keyboard, but places itself firmly at the front of smartphone technology with its powerful core and 18MP camera.

The Priv is a little delicate to the touch, but is a smooth and sophisticated experience. The key pad is the reason I bought it, and although I miss the BBOS, I'm hapy to have a ton more apps to explore.

Build quality is not amazing neither is the camera but I definitely prefer it over my iPhone 6.
Physical keyboard feels great. Phone looks very stylish. Battery life isn't amazing, but charge time even without quickcharger is very very quick.

The Priv has a lovely screen; large, bright and sharp. The slider feels really smooth and solid, and the device as a whole feels well built. Having a real keyboard again is a delight, after the autocorrect terrors of my previous, screen only, phone.
