Since BlackBerry launched its first ever Android phone, BlackBerry Priv, the company has been in the news. Not only because it is one of the most talked about phones today, but also it is hugely in demand. When Priv was listed on Amazon for sale, all units were sold out in just a few hours.


Considering the demand and reviews, should you choose BlackBerry Priv over other Android phones? Well, here are a few reasons why you should.


With hackers easily getting access to phones and ruining high-end devices with malware, security is the first thing you would want your smartphone to offer you. BlackBerry Priv’s main focus is exactly on what you have been asking for: privacy and security. As stated on the product’s webpage, “Whether it’s your financial reports or your selfies, your data is encrypted by default on Priv by BlackBerry.”

The company also states they have taken extra steps at software as well as hardware levels so your device remains safe from malware. They also monitor access to personal data and other BlackBerry Priv’s features. Compared to Priv, other Android phones have only basic features for security.

BBM, apps and email

With BlackBerry Messenger, one of the most secure instant messaging services, you never have to worry about hackers peeping into your private conversations. Managing group chats is also easy with BBM.

Other Android phones have completely given up on the physical keyboard, which at times make it difficult to type, leading to spelling errors. This is completely unacceptable when it comes to professional emails. BlackBerry Priv comes with a physical as well as a virtual keyboard. The device has apps that help you navigate between the two. BlackBerry also brought apps to Priv to organize calendars. The phone also offers better organization of emails.

As mentioned above, BlackBerry Priv comes with a physical keyboard, which only a few Android phones offer these days. A keyboard may look a little old-fashioned, but at least it eases your work to a great extent.
