    Yes I could ask that question but I like to be specific and now that I know there's a way that it can install any apps and games (Even it is piracy and allowed to install from unknown sources) outside the Google Play Store in the BB Priv.

    My whole, main and only reason is that I've had with apps who has advertisments and commercials built-in it. I'm not a developer and as a user I don't buy premium apps and/or games often via the Google Play Store.
    Just because of that, It could be a rip off from buying premium apps who doesn't function properly.
    If it doesn't function, you can return it for a refund.
    Unfortunately Android land has many who don't want to pay anything for anything, so to these folks the refund thing sounds like Norwegian .

    I'm sorta amazed that there can be so many questions, other than does it feel solid, screen, sound and picture quality but sound, screen and picture quality are always subjective.,and, what are the differences between HUB on Android vs BB. It's an Android device and the vast majority of questions, for those who've never used Android should go over to Android Central to ask how the latest lollipop works.

    Sorry, I am still reading this thread... just finished page 2.
    How's the email experience on Priv? Does it allows you to store 1months / 3 months / forever....emails for imap emails?
    And does it like BB email, all the emails inside folders (outbox, inbox, other folders) will be sync and show in the hub like BB10 or will just refresh and show email for single folder (e.g. outbox) like iPhone do?

    Hey, sure you are exhausted from this questioning but do you know if the SD card slot supports UHS-1 speeds?

    Why would it? Google play has more and better apps. The only trouble will be paid apps that you had on BBW that won't transfer over to Android.

    I'm an Android user. I played with Blackberry before, YEARS ago, probably, I think it was the Blackbery Curve 8900 from T-Mobile. It actually changed my perception about Blackberry because I always thought Blackberry was just for enterprise/business users.

    My only clutch with Blackberry was the lack of apps (as time went on).

    As for the Priv, I'm kind of disappointed in the camera. As great as the camera was being touted, "Schneider-Kreuznach certified", but no manual controls? Especially when you have OIS, and Phase detection auto-focus. No time-shift. I mean... I don't even really care for timeshift necessarily, but I feel like in 2015 and touting a great camera, it should be thrown in there.

    I'm one of those media-creator smartphone users, so I do a lot of pics and vids, so that, the battery life, and storage, will be the main things that will deter me from buying a smartphone. The camera overall seems to be great enough from what privberry has stated (though manual controls being missing, meh....), the battery life seems to be great, the storage kind of bothers me since I download a good majority of apps (Even though with Android M you can use adoptable storage, but I can't use that Micro SD card anymore from what I've heard).

    Hopefully, the priv will be supported by third-party apps like, "Manual camera" , "DSLR Camera Pro", "Camera FV-5" for manual controls.

    I didn't see my question answered - is there multi-window multitasking like on the Note? Where you can view two apps simultaneously? I hear it's coming to Marshmallow innately but since the Priv is a productivity device, I wondered if they implemented it on Lollipop. I use this really often on the Note for work...

    I don't think it was answered , but does the Priv have the ability to block calls and sms without apps?
    I don't have a Priv but here are instructions on how to block calls and block texts on lollipop devices without an extra app. So it should be possible. But I highly recommend a 3rd party like Truecaller...

    Thanks for all the questions and answers. This made my decision easier. Either wait for Priv 2 or all the kinks to be worked out. Either way no need for a day 1 purchase. Will just keep on rocking with the classic.

    Is the screen actually curved, even a little, or is it just the Gorilla glass that's curved?
    It's really hard to tell from all the pictures around...

    It's as curved as the S6 edge, not as curved as the note edge

    I agree with you 100% but remember the camera app is detached from the OS as such it can be updated with functionality.

    Privberry/Usman_hidayat,

    How is the keyboard? My main gripe with the Q10 keyboard is I'd prefer to be a bit softer. Less force needed to press a button.

    Are the Priv keyboard keys softer?
