    That looks .. rather silly – BUT its a big improvement to move to the android eco system.

  • Definitely a lot more apps from Google Play on your BlackBerry, for a huge price.

    Why would you choose that over the Google Nexus 6P ?!? KrAzY.

    You have to keep in mind the BlackBerry Priv is not running a native version of Lollipop as all other Android Devices are running, Google and BlackBerry collaborated to make a BB Lollipop version. So its somewhat different (More Secure)
