    Lol, how did a software update make it a BB rather than Android?

    Shuuuush! Rationalising occurring.

    Yes, it's Android 5.1, but I'm sure that if you squint you can see how BB10-like that Android really is on the Priv.

    I guess it's a BlackBerry device because BlackBerry says it's a BlackBerry. One that happens to run Android

    Didn't you hear? The update actually installed BB10 on the phone and erased the Android OS. Its a secret though, don't tell anyone.

    What the main reason to push you buy the Priv again? the case is rare
    No further Os10 devices! PP SE was the only choice so nothing new same like PP OG!

    What else is upgrade?? S6 without SD card support? Or Asian smartphones?
    Although I don't like Android very much but still it's by BlackBerry so trust relationship is there already. Another point to buy Priv was hardware which is superb

    You again ? I have posted some respectful comments for you but unfortunately MODs deleted and couldn't reach you!

    Before update battery was worst could not last 10 hours now it's more than a day. Camera was lacking but now good and many more things.

    Android/Google send updates to the OEMs like BlackBerry, then BB tweak them and send them to the consumer.

    You will never get an update "by Android" only Nexus phones and AndroidOne phones get those.

    Whatever was wrong before was BB fault and they sent that 400mb update to fix it.

    It is not wrong or right! Priv is BlackBerry's first Android so they need this improvement and glad they did it in couple of months. There is always chances of improvement and I hope BlackBerry is doing fast!

    True. I'm glad they are fixing whatever they didn't do correctly so quickly. It's a very good sign of great future support for their devices.

    Do you also feel the same way about Samsung phones? They don't have a proprietary OS ; so they are not true Samsung?

    Do you also believe Android has killed Samsung?
