    Im just curious who's all using the priv still? I've loved the keyboard on this phone since day 1 and I'm currently using it as my daily driver!

    I'm still using mine daily. Broke the screen on my pre-order Priv and picked up a 2nd cheap. Really hoping for another slider from Blackberry.

    Every once in a while I pick up my old Priv. It was a great device, but it suffers in smoothness and speed as to be expected when comparing it to my new device. More ram and much better processor tend to do help performance along with great optimization makes my 5T my go to device.

    Even with all that, I do believe there is a place for a Priv styled slider, but it must not be plagued with the issues the Priv had if it is to be successful.

    Still using my Priv occasionally in 2018, it works ok not had any overheating and battery life lasts a day, I do watch some videos on it as the screen is very good, but as BB10 still works for me daily phone is a Leap.

    PRIV is OK in 2018 if you already own it. Don't spend money on it now. Apply towards the Motion or KEYone if you want BBAndroid now and you're planning to use as primary device.

    i tried to keep using mine at work on wifi to run the xm app, but it keeps crashing. then i tried to use it to watch the masters using the masters app and i could barely get it to load. the last at&t update stopped at android version 6.0.1 and security patch 10/5/17. i was always a blackberry fan and tried to keep giving them a chance by buying the priv, but it just wasn't the same. i gave up on it a little over a year (about the time it stopped getting updates) and switched to a gs7 and now the gs9

    The Priv looked like - and still is - a gorgeous phone. I'd understand why people would be using it in 2018. Though my Pixel 2 keyboard is great, ever since I've switched over to Android, I've always missed my BlackBerry keyboard! (Be it my Bold 9780 or my Q10.)

    This was the reason I got the KEYone. I've been much happier with the KEYone than PRIV.

    Im still using PRIV because I can't get away from using the keyboard and having a full screen. not to mention the keyboard is a trac pad.

    Im on my Priv now and own all BlackBerrys except for the Motion, but it's on its way. I love the Priv but the SD808 sucks ***.

    So True! If you'll use Nova Launcher and Disable the BlackBerry Hub Suite the Priv runs so well.. But I also agree with what you are thinking right now ( yeah you)... what's the point in owning a BlackBerry if you Disable the main BlackBerry Features..

    I love my priv but it's dying ๐Ÿ™

    Can't figure out what to get, next. I am waiting to win a Motion or KEYone from fan league. Then I will forgive BlackBerry for selling me this thing ๐Ÿ˜‚

    I do love their code named Ghost Pro! Wish I could get that.

    I'm still carrying my Priv. It's my daily driver. I love the phone.
    I'll carry it until it dies. All my friends and family are always making fun of it because it's not an iPhone. I've had iPhones I hate them.
    I've been a Blackberry fan from day one. Still have my old Curve as a souvenir!

    Does Nova simply make it faster or does it help with battery also? Cause if it does that too I'd consider sacrificing the PKB shortcuts

    had to put mine on backup status about 3 weeks ago. it just wasn't behaving in a way I could trust. if Verizon ever picks up another BlackBerry pkb phone, I'll be very tempted. better yet if it's a priv like slider

    Yes nova makes it much faster and run smoother. Never paid attention to the battery so I'm notsure man.

    Still using mine as daily driver.

    Sent mine to China to get an extra GB of memory soldered on and a heatsink mod, will be getting a new battery this week.

    I don't forsee any new sliders coming so I'll run mine to the ground or until I get kicked off the network for running Android 6.

    I'm still using my Priv everyday as a work phone. Love the slider and the more I use the keyboard the more I like it. You can tell this is a premium phone even in 2018.

    Priv is nice if you want the iconic design and keyboard and have a budget of about $100 - $150. If you can get into the $200 + mark, better to get a used KEYone.

    This exactly. I was a long time BlackBerry user, still have my Priv and use it a day or 4 every month. But my Pixel 2 is just so much faster, smoother, better battery life, faster charging. Hard to switch back to Priv now. But I prefer Android 8 to Android 9. And the Priv is doomed to stay with Android 6. So guess I need a Key2? But it won't work with Verizon. So get a 1.5 year old KEYone now? Just not sure where to go from here... ๐Ÿ˜”

    And you have my attention... Any chances of replacing that 808?
