Verizon Wireless customers have been waiting to get the BlackBerry Priv for ages and now their wish is finally granted. This Android handset with physical keyboard and dual-edge display has hit the market back in November 2015, so it took Verizon almost four months to add it to its portfolio.
Strange enough, Verizon added the Priv handset silently to its website, so it is not known yet when will it hit the carrier's retail stores. For now, it can be acquired online for $720 USD outright, or $30 USD per month with a 24 month contract, next to the cost of the data plan that can range from $30 USD to $100 USD a month.
BlackBerry Priv is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808, featuring 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal memory and additional storage via microSD, 18 MP main camera, 3410 mAh battery with Quick Charge 2.0, and still runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.

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.
