Mobile Phone | Picks from the critics:

BlackBerry Priv
With a unique feature set comes the BlackBerry Priv. It's a well-made Android phone. We commend BlackBerry for turning its hand to being an Android OEM, and the result is a fast smartphone with a great display, hardware keyboard and solid build and design. Battery life could be better, but our main quibble is with the price: at this price the Priv needs to be a world beater. And as good as it is, it isn't that. Still, if you want an Android with a hardware keyboard and some BlackBerry features, this is the phone for you. says pcadvisor


BlackBerry Priv
It's good to seeing BlackBerry (at last) getting itself on the right track with its hardware and software, perhaps it’s because the Priv attempts to do things differently, but this is a smartphone that I’ve enjoyed using in the time I’ve had it.

In a world of bland, homogenous smartphone design, the BlackBerry Priv stands out as a beacon of individuality, a smartphone that does everything a standard Android smartphone can, but without sinking into morass of mediocrity. It isn’t the greatest phone around, but at least it’s something different.

BlackBerry problem is that it will take an awful lot more than just one good phone to dig it out of the hole it’s currently in. It’s not so much a case of turning up to the party fashionably late, rather that BlackBerry has turned up the next day, after the police have turned up and arrested all the troublemakers.

In the end, however good the Blackberry Priv is, it faces an uphill battle in a crowded market to gain much attention. You might like it, you might not, but will it lead to greater things from BlackBerry in the future? Well, at least it’s a start. says alphr


BlackBerry Priv
Finally we have a BlackBerry smartphone with all the apps you want, with a screen you can actually enjoy videos and games on, and an interface that's far more familiar and intuitive (for the general public at least) than that on the BlackBerry 10.

Problem is, I wanted to love the Priv – and this is a phone that BlackBerry really needs people to love if the company's ever going to get back into the consumer hardware market – but I just don't.

The flakey performance and absence of a properly premium design, coupled with a price tag which makes it more expensive than the established Android flagship players, makes the BlackBerry Priv very difficult to recommend over its closest rivals.

The BlackBerry Priv is by far the best phone BlackBerry has produced in recent years – but once again I can't help but feel that it's just too little, too late. says techradar
