    Pretty fine for me, although I am on the latest Marshmallow beta.

    The transition from Lollipop to Marshmallow eliminated a lot of my previous gripes, and it's a shame that AT&T/Verizon are taking so long.
    Hey I heard that on MM, Priv no longer is able to install apk files? I am still on 5.1.1 and have reasons to worry.

    My Priv is faster than it ever was with marshmallow! But I routinely wiped it a few times and entered all my info manually.

    As posted before, the Priv can't make the cut for me on a daily use basis. The lag is unbearable in the Hub, snail mail could be less frustrating. I've had a Priv since November release, cleaned, formatted, updated, etc. too many times for this to be reasonable. Classic for daily use and I keep my Priv for pleasure use. Cheap tariffs in the UK make this easy. I'll wait for the next MM release then decide what to do with it, sell and replace or hopefully the bugs are squashed.

    Not using the transfer app, or if you did, run autoloader and manually input data, seems to make a difference.
    I'm wondering how many 'laggy' are US carrier devices, with all that special stuff in the OS and firmware. Nobody bothers to say. And if you are running a US carrier device you ARE running a highly customized device.

    No lag, factory unlocked, AAF518

    When you buy a device through a carrier you will receive your device with a lot of the carriers bloatware pre-installed. That's why it's probably best to get a factory unlocked Priv from shop BlackBerry (you get updates quicker,too!).

    The only way to remove the bloatware is through rooting your device, which is impossible on the Priv due to its hardened security.

    What version are you on? On the latest beta I'm having no issues. Everything is running smoothly for the most part.

    I'm on AAF518.

    Before that I had virtually no free RAM so it was causing a lot of lag when using apps like Snapchat and Maps. Forget about using both of them together.

    You do know that we could always disable those bloatwares so that they wont run and be seen from the app drawer, right?
    That makes the carrier unlocked phone not so different from factory unlocked ones.

    I bought mine direct from BlackBerry UK in November, there's no bloatware and running AAF518. I'm back in Cambridge Canada for a few days and showed some seasoned BB10 users what was happening, the look of shock on their faces when I let them type a few replies on my Priv. They understand why I'm using a Classic as my daily business device.

    A couple of reports of some of that stuff not being able to be dis-abled. The Device Health App, and I don't recall what else.
    And it's still sitting there occupying memory. I don't think any of it can be moved to SD. If you are running MM with with portable or removable SD, then you definitely can't move the AT&T or any other app to SD.

    And there's always the update question, just because AT&T finally released MM doesn't mean any further updates, including the monthly security patches will be released. They may be released kinda sorta in a timely manner, they may be released months late, or they may never be released.

    And if you are not actually on AT&T, you will have to connect your phone to a computer once a month, (hopefully monthly, maybe not) wipe all the data and settings, then reload data and put settings back to the way you had them.

    I'd hardly call that "not so different'.

    Still on Lollipop (and with fingers crossed and knocking on splintered wood), I have no lag on the Verizon model (well, who else except Verizon folks is still on Lollipop).

    So, the answer is NOT EVERYONE has lag. But I can't explain why other than some configuration issue or app, I'd guess.

    I think those bloatwares when disabled doesnt occupy memory, instead they took internal storage.
    Honestly I dont see much difference, performance-wise, between a factory unlocked and carrier unlocked. Both models run equally fast.
    As for the built quality, when I was using the PPSE, I had a chance to play with a factory unlocked one, well, I think the carrier unlocked that I am using felt more sturdy in the hand. It does not come with creaky back and clicking screen issues which happen to many factory unlocked.
    You are right on the point that the carrier unlocked be the last one in the line to get security patches and ppl who value this should never buy carrier unlocked priv, period.
    I am buying Priv because it has physical keyboard and it is made by Blackberry. I couldnt care less about the security patches. Plus, factory unlocked Priv in my country is sold at approximately $ 730, so, compared to the 300$ deal on ebay, it was just too sweet to look away.
    Blackberry is working on a solution that allows AT&T unlocked priv can receive the ota update without active AT&T sim. It is pretty far fetched but it is something worth looking forward to. I dont know if BlackBerry can pull this off but if they could, it would be a bonus to sweeten the investment

    Internal storage is memory, memory that could be used by other apps if the bloatware wasn't wasting it. With 32gb, you would have to load a whole bunch of apps before you needed it though.

    Build quality doesn't seem to have anything with carrier or not, just kinda all over the place, but worse with the initial, or early devices.

    I will agree that $400+, still in your pocket is a 'chunk of change'. Honestly, if I were buying now, I'd have to give serious consideration to grabbing the cheap AT&T. They were all about the same price when I bought last year.

    I'm afraid BB's 'solution' to updating the 'orphaned' AT&T Priv's is going to be the autoloader.
    Hope I'm wrong, and they come up with a less PIA solution.
