    When was the last time they didn't release on time? Keep in mind, fan site rumors DO NOT count.

    Strangely my friend with a Nex 5 and he was complaining about lags on 5.0. He told me it was the reason he didn't upgrade to the further versions.
    Some devices had odd lag on 5.0. Generally 5.1.1 is much better in that regard.

    Not the best of reviews this phone don't look much promising? It's taken BlackBerry over nearly one year to make a total failure All hopes are gone.
    It was just an informal review of a pre-production device without the final software, by someone who had a chance to play with it for a short time.

    You cannot make definitive conclusions about what the final product will be based on this article.

    But what if it's the same price as the G4? Still G4? I'd take the keyboard.
    I'll take the keyboard AND AMOLED screen S6 edge vs LG G4 always report how the Amoled in the samsung is superior to the LCD in the G4. Deeper black, vibrant colors, and surprisingly, better visibility in bright light

    Let me guess: the reviewer would never claim the Iphone 6+ to be too big for one hand use, he would just ignore this fact. When it comes to Blackberry though this suddenly is a biiiig problem. Pathetic review as always. Sigh

    That's because people keep using heavily skinned versions of Android cough LG and Samsung and when they base their impression of Android on that then of course they'll say it's laggy.
    It's all relative. People say Android lags, because the benchmark is iOS, and if you compare to iOS, yeah, every android lags more or less. Might not be all the time, but NO android is as close to a swiss watch as iOS is.

    Any details? I don't remember them announcing the device to be ready by date "A" and then actually released after "A".

    he announced at the annual shareholders meeting passport and classic were going to launch in the fall. I think passport made it like on the first day of fall but the classic was over 2 months later in mid december.

    Pointless review as they say almost nothing that wasn't already known and they don't mention the capacitive keyboard or much about the software.

    I really don't care about the camera. Waste of time mostly.

    [*SNIP*].....It is sad because like most things BlackBerry, there are some great ideas but many of them will be poorly executed or shelved.

    Why with all these "leaks" has no one bothered to showcase the main feature of the device, the one that distinguishes it from the other Android phones out there? Of course, I mean the Hub? This resulted in Chen showing the device but choosing to open Chrome?

    I hope I am wrong but I am starting to feel like we are watching another, maybe the final, BlackBerry car wreck slowly unfold.

    As expected (sadly), the device is already technologically outdated and, of course, likely overpriced. $300-$400 would be a fair market value range, any pricing over that is an automatic deal breaker, however.

    We're going on 2016 here soon, not 2014.

    Or this one "...between keyboard and the actual body, however, tends to accumulate dust and dirt...". I mean really? After 2,5 hours of testing dust and dort accumulated??? Why are these biased reviewer always so obvious.

    Btw, aren't you all tired of this specs race? Why should I care if the priv has 2014 specs if it will run smooth and without any lag? If it's going to be optimized really good than there shouldn't be any issue with the hw (look at the ms phones and iphone).
    This spec race is getting really old, 4 GB of RAM, hexa core, etc, boring, boring, boring. I agree that most consumers are attracted by high end specs, just because they are on the phone but regular folks should't care that much if the priv has top of the line 2015 specs or 2014 ones.
    We're referring to an Android platform device, right? I can assure you from personal experience that BB users are going to need all the specs that they can get.

    "Even under heavy usage the battery meter dropped only from 100 to 85 during 2,5 hours with the display set to 75 percent brightness. Extrapolating this experience while considering a more average kind of usage, the Priv should be well able to provide power for 1 to 1,5 days per charge."
    I see 9% battery used in 33 minutes. Remaining 6% used in other 118 minuets ?????????????? One and half day usage looks like a tall claim here.

    Exactly my thoughts.

    He also said that the phone is not thin.

    Compared to what exactly? The iphone 6+?

    Tell me how the Snapdragon 808 is "outdated", there isn't even a 2014 phone with a 808. The first device with a 808 was the LG G4 wich was released in June this year, only 4 months ago...
    The Priv has the same "best in class" QuadHD Amoled screen as the S6 edge. has 3gb of ram.. Show me the "2014" specs because I'm failing to see...
    Do some reasearch before posting crap

    Not to mention in real world testing it outclasses the 810, which is the hottest flagship chip of 2015. Quite literally.

    depends...we dont know the price yet for certain. I dont think the specs are bad, certainly not top of the line but mid to high still. But if price is 700 instead of 600 that does change things quite a bit IMO

    The current top of the line is the 810, which has overheating problems so 808 actually outperforms it in real life due to throttling. Next one is the 820 but that isn't even out from anyone yet.

    True. The 810 is suposed to be better, but because of the overheating issues, now the SD810s all come downclocked, wich make them as fast as the 808
