    Still using it successfully because I use it within the envelope it likes to be used in. Such a cool phone!

    I use it daily with Google apps and IG via browser not app. My PRIV works perfectly and last security update October 2017. No issues.

    The Priv is still my only phone.
    Original screen and battery in place and (touch wood!) still working fine.
    I bought a Classic just in case anything happened to the Priv, but the Classic is still in its box.
    I love the Priv.

    I'm still using mine but seriously considering a switch to a Pixel 3 or Galaxy S10 as my priv heats up quite a bit and the battery does drain faster than before

    too bad BlackBerry doesn't have a flagship coming up

    The overheating is a characteristic of the phone. The worsening battery drain is simply indicative of needed battery replacement.

    Are you clearing cache? My PRIV used daily Oct 2019 and had it 3 years does no overheat.
    Also make sure location is disabled and only use when needed. I also removed Instagram / Facebook and only use them via browser.

    good luck.

    The PRIV is my current phone. It's really awsome. I have the AAW068. I had tried samsung between 2015 and 2018, but this one is rally great. I love the physical keyboard and the concept.

    Honestly, with october 2017 build's, I remarked more draining and bugs. But with the 2018's update, it's clearly better. The battery is more efficient as well the launcher and background tasks( without Facebook and useless apps)

    The basic problem was and is simply if someone is attempting to utilize it’s Android capabilities as intended. The improvements with battery life and battery drain from PRIV to DTEK to KEY series is amazing. That’s biggest part of the learning curve.

    BBAndroid operates differently with hub while the app ecosystem runs differently than BB10 does. BB was going through it’s learning curve 2015-2018 that Android OEMs experienced 2008-2015 from the fragmented development.

    The compensating for the PRIV with shutting various features off will help with overheating but it defeats the whole purpose of using many of the modern apps since it limits capabilities. The battery degradation is just that from having to be charged repeatedly with additional factor now of age. The device hasn’t been actually produced since mid-year 2016 at latest.
