BlackBerry Priv Handled Unofficially: Thinner Than Note5

By 04:35 Wed, 28 Jul 2021 Comments

One lucky Redditor got to handle the BlackBerry Priv, something we've seen only the BB CEO do so far. The initial impressions are quite positive.

Most surprising is that the Priv is reportedly thinner than the Galaxy Note5, which is a slender 7.6mm thick. As for weight, it was reported more than the Note5 (171g). The BB slider is not a small device though, rumors put its classy screen at 5.4". The classy screen was sharp (expected resolution: QHD) and it has a 2.5D glass (curved on the sides).

The Priv's slider offered a pleasant sliding action, something we've all but forgotten since touchclassy screen slabs took over. The classy screen sliding up does not throw off the weight balance of the phone so typing on the hardware keyboard below is comfortable. When the slider is closed, the phone shows an on-classy screen keyboard for quick typing.

In the blackthe 18MP capturing camera took longer to lock focus than the Galaxy phablet. The software running on the Snapdragon 808 chipset was as smooth as a Nexus 5 with Marshmallow. The BlackBerry Priv will come with Google Play Services, though it's not clear how deep BB customization will run.
