Android version and market relevance

In October 2015 Blackberry company introduced its new smartphone BlackBerry Priv. This is a new model, which is running on 5.1 Lollipop and, according to the manufacturer, will be updated to a more recent version Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

If you think that for today such an android smartphone on the version 5.1 Lollipop already outdated, then we advise you to look DROID-smartphones in our directory, where we collected a list of devices on the latest version of Android.

Screen, body and battery

Moderately large 5.4-inch screen, made by technology AMOLED, installed in the smartphone BlackBerry Priv.

The larger the screen, the larger the case. But in addition to the width and height of the hull, its thickness is important. At BlackBerry Priv the thickness of the case is 9.4 mm, which turns out to be very thick. Today, there are many smartphones with a slim body.

The battery and the operating time also depend on the screen size. At BlackBerry Priv installed battery for 3 410 mAh, and this is not enough, but not yet a lot.

Of the features of the case and form factor, it is worth noting availability of a QWERTY keyboard.

Main camera and selfie camera

On the back of the smartphone is a good main camera on 18 MP. In addition to the main camera, which is very important, it is also worth paying attention to the quality of the pictures from the front camera. And here at this model the front-seat camera got its 2 MP, which is very little. If you really want to make quality smartphones on the smartphone, we advise you to look in the catalog selfie smartphones, in which the frontcamera of 13 Mp.

Processor and Internal Memory

Brilliant multi-core processor Snapdragon 808 installed in BlackBerry Priv. 3 GB of RAM will help make the interface work smoother. There is also built-in memory in the smartphone, which stores photos, videos, music and all your other data. The amount of this built-in memory is 32 GB. Memory cards you can also use, in this model are supported microSD-cards up to 256 GB.

Price for BlackBerry Priv: buy or not to buy?

Life is fleeting, and the life of a smartphone on the mobile market in general can be compared with the life of a butterfly. And all because the producers of android-smartphones do not always want to support their devices and prefer to release a new model in six months. Therefore, our task is to help you choose the actual smartphone today, which is being sold and will be still relevant for at least the next six months. If BlackBerry Priv you find among DROID smartphones in our catalog, you can safely buy it now, and if you do not find it, then its better already do not buy.

However, official sales BlackBerry Priv began in November 2015. The manufacturer said the price of $790 without taxes and fees. With such a price level on BlackBerry Priv, we placed it in the price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”.

Buy BlackBerry Priv you can in any store (or on the Internet, or in the electronics supermarket), we just advise you to see live on the smartphone and hold it in your hands before buying.
