BlackBerry Priv is now almost two-years old smartphone, but it still offers fair performance. It’s a really big and robust smartphone, with its 5.4″ display, offering a crystal-clear and sharp 2K resolution. Oh, BlackBerry Priv also offers a physical QWERTY keyboard. While the Qualcomm MSM8992 Snapdragon 808 chipset and the Hexa-core (4×1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 & 2×1.8 GHz Cortex-A57) CPU are really great, Adreno 418 GPU is now outdated and will not perform that well in games. At the back of the phone, we have an 18 MP camera which is excellent.

The camera can record 2160p videos at 30 fps and 1080p videos at 60 fps. However, the front-facing 2 MP camera is lackluster; it should’ve been better. The 32 GB internal storage is solid, but not great and the amount of RAM is satisfying- 3 GB in total. BlackBerry Priv is an interesting smartphone with lots to offer, and although it’s old now, it’s upgradable to Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow), so there you go!

    Blackberry Leap... an interesting phone!

    BlackBerry leap took my attention when i saw that it has a physical keyboard… yikes! It works well here and the display is second to none with 1440p resolution. The only downside is the Android 5.1 installed here, which i think isn't upgradable.
