Although it got quite a few good reviews, BlackBerry Priv has failed to impress in terms of sales. However, there might still be a future for the company formerly known as RIM since this handset did not reach a lot of major carriers. Next Tuesday, BlackBerry Priv hits T-Mobile, allowing those interested to get it for $0 USD upfront.
The highlights of BlackBerry's first Android handset include the company's signature QWERTY physical keyboard, an impressive 18 MP dual flash main camera with OIS and Schneider-Kreuznach optics, as well as a battery capable of handling up to 22 hours of use. The 5.4-inch AMOLED display has a resolution of 1,440X2,560 pixels and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The processor is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 with Adreno 418 graphics and next to it there are 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage, supplemented by a microSD slot.
T-Mobile will offer the BlackBerry Priv with JUMP! On Demand for $0 USD down and $34 USD a month for 24 months, which brings the cost of this handset to $719.99 USD. This is a limited time offer that only applies to well-qualified customers.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
