There are a lot of pundits that will tell you Blackberry has moved on and is no longer in play with the marketplace. However, they aren’t quite dead yet, they are still in place and have unleashed a new phone that takes the best of the past and locks it into the present. You may not know this, but the brand is set to regain a marketplace that seemed to have left it behind. That’s exactly what consumers are seeing with the release of the BlackBerry Priv. As you look into the main features, you’re going to see that this phone is definitely on par with the design, and technology that you’d expect from the current crop of releases overall.
The first major thing that you will see talked about in regards to the BlackBerry Priv is that they are all about privacy. They are looking at keeping the information that you use and push through private. So much so that it’s their number one feature selling point right now. You are not going to find a lot of other companies that are touting this so heavily. They are 100% committed to the privacy of the end user, and it’s part of the larger feature scaling. The following are some of the features you’re going to want to consider overall.
High End Display – The first thing you’ll notice is the high resolution display. The resolution comes standard at 2560 x 1440 running at 540 PPI. There’s a 16:9 ratio, and gives you 5.4” of screen viewing. It’s clear, bright, and well worth investigating on a deeper level.
Camera – 18MP camera is the main draw here, but it’s the image stabilization, HDR, f2.2 lens that really gets marketing right now. If you’re looking for high definition recording, then you’re going to be amazed by the 4K video recording that can record upwards of 30 FPS, and 1080 HD at 1080p with relative ease. There’s also a build in, video stabilization combined with the recording, so that you aren’t lost in noise while recording.
Battery – Everyone that is buying smartphones today is immediately going to ask about the battery life. Well, in the case of the BlackBerry Priv, you’re going to find that it has a fast charging battery that can last upwards of 22.5 hours. With quick charging technology, you can get back to action within minutes instead of hours.
The Processing Power – The processing power that Blackberry has here is on par with Android devices right now. It has a Qualcomm Hexa-core 64-bit processor and 3GB of RAM. With 32GB memory in place, you will not run out of storage, but it’s the up to 2TB storage solution that is going to impress the hard skeptics, that’s for sure.
For fans of Blackberry from the past, don’t worry, this is a slight sliding phone. It’s thin, but it still maintains a qwerty keyboard that you can slide up if you’d like. If not, you can use the touchscreen up front that will definitely be worth looking at. This can be seen as a con for some. Some people will not like the qwerty keyboard and sliding option, but that’s what makes the brand so compelling for those that love it. You can easier option, however.
Overall, the BlackBerry Priv is a solid release. The brand is powered by Android here, and it’s fast. The storage is high, expandable, and the camera is certified by “Schneider-Kreuznach”. If you are looking for
an alternative to the big boys in smartphones, then this is a good release to look at. It features nearly all the main stay elements you’d come to expect, with a touch of extra design and technology build to offer that little extra push.
