    Are we sure that's the case? I don't see an FM tuner mention anywhere on the Snapdragon 808's chipset specs.

    Most smart phones have the FM chip, but it's not enabled by the carrier. I can't speak about Priv's hardware, but I know there is a movement in the US to get carriers to change this.

    You can also download an fm tuner app. I downloaded one and use it. A local station I like has an app, but it Sucks data and battery like you won't believe! I use the fm tuner instead.

    Enjoying the Priv

    Edit: the app was streaming. There is an app that doesn't next radio. It doesn't yet support AT&T.
