Blackberry Priv review: Finally succumbs to Android, and does well!
To start, the Priv is an Android device with a physical keyboard — this is unique (but not the first). The screen slides up to reveal the 4-row keypad which, incidentally, also doubles up as a trackpad (similar to the BlackBerry passport). The screen is a 2k resolution amoled unit with gorgeous colours and deep blacks. It slides out with a satisfying (and sometimes addictive) spring-loaded action. It also curves slightly on both sides and this allows for some 'edge' functionality like a single line battery indicator and slide out actions. Under the keypad, you'll see the speaker grill. On top, there is a slot each for a nano SIM and micro SD. The micro USB port and 3.5mm audio out are on the bottom edge. Power button is on the left while the volume rocker is on the right. Around the back is a familiar glass weave design — it looks like carbon fiber but is soft to the touch, resists fingerprints and is very durable.
