  • My BB DTEK 60 wouldn't charge any longer so I pulled my old, beat-up BB Priv out, swapped SIM cards and have been getting great service out of it while waiting for my open-box BB Motion to come in. Priv battery holds a charge much better than the DTEK 60, can almost go a whole day without recharging.

  • i still use this phone. its bit slow maybe but theres a lot of opportunities for unique customization that make up for the drawbacks to such a degree that its still worth using. the only real problem with the phone is that the camera lens is plastic and and significantly reduces picture quality so i replaced it with some nokia phone's camera glass i found off aliexpress. now it takes good photos too. im gonna keep using this phone for a while, its cool and works fine.

    • also the stock software on the phone is incredibly slow so that might be the problem if you're still using it. BB hub, the productivity tab, and the launcher are unusably slow. i disabled those, switched to a lighter launcher, and use a button remapper app for universal button shortcuts

    • @Hugh Jeffreys you can't flash an OS on it, i've tried figuring out how to root it and its potentially hackable but the the bootloader is locked and does a hash check so you can't even root it without it trying to un-root itself and even if you could install a custom OS the hardware drivers for the synaptic trackpad wouldn't be ported over and the biggest feature of the phone wouldn't work. it feels slower than a nexus 5x, which uses the same chipset, but its performance is exactly the same in benchmarks. its not slow in the sense that its not capable of doing a job you throw at it but its slow in the sense that it takes a long time for the cpu to realize it needs to kick into higher gear. i am positive the cpu governor they use sacrifices performance to improve battery life which makes an old chipset feel even older. the battery life IS exceptional for a 5 year old phone though but i don't use mine with the stock launcher or snapchat or any apps that are remotely high-cpu usage like facebook or games. i even have most google services disabled on mobile data. i just use it to browse the internet, text message people, browse 4chan, and remote desktop into my computer and for those things this phone is perfectly powerful enough and the button shortcuts make up for any lack of speed in the OS

    • I need to figure out how to flash a faster OS onto it. I don't understand why the stock OS is so slow

  • The two-color temperature LED was so underrated. Basically this meant that it didn't matter how warm or cold your light was in the sign. It allowed you to adapt the flash to the envoirement resulting in more natural looking light. A much missed feature.

Compared to the iphone 6s, that came out the same year as this, this phone is waaaaay better. I will *definitely* buy one of these at some point to replace my awful iphone 5s.

  • The Priv was the best phone I've ever owned. Built like a tank, fit perfectly in my (tiny womens jeans) pockets, and had a great keyboard. Heck, I sideloaded Blackberry's software keyboard on my new device because it's still the best software keyboard I've used. Only ended up upgrading after a few years when its small RAM quantity started getting too limiting.

  • 5:29 You ALWAYS want the absolute minimum amount of thermal paste that guarantees good contact with the heat sink. Paste doesn't cool anything by itself. If it does anything, it interrupts the heat exchange. We use the paste because it is still better than having pockets of air between the processor and the heat sink. It's basically a filler between the processor and the sink, and of course, you want as little filler as possible if you want the heat to reach the sink to be dissipated qiuckly.
