Yesterday, while many were opening their gifts of the Magi, the Canadian manufacturer opened up the possibility that Spanish users could acquire the Blackberry Priv, as we announced from the free Android. The new Android smartphone is arousing great excitement among users, but we will see if the 779 euros it costs offset by a terminal that comes after many months of waiting.
And it is that we can not review the Blackberry Priv features which is not bad, but always, the question is, are worth what they cost is not little, 779 euros?
To do a quick overview of their features, we have a team with a 4.5 inch screen and resolution QHD, which gives a density of 544 dots per inch (DPI). Inside houses a processor Snapdragon 808, a hexa - core 1.8 GHz which has been also used by other manufacturers like LG for their terminal star this year, LG G4. It is served with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage expandable other 128 GB with microSD cards. Main 18 MP camera front 5 MP, Wi-Fi a, b, g, n; 4.1 Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS and a 3.410 mAh battery for a team with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
It is clear that their main trump card on the market is the only of its proposal. And it is that we we have a team that has a sliding screen under which we find the characteristic QWERTY keyboard (although it is not mandatory to use it, because it also appears in the display).
Now, it would have to analyze the cost of this event because the team stands out from the rest with a 9.4 mm thickness - although it remained below the 10 mm is an achievement - and a weight of 192 g. I.e., should take into account that it is a team more thickly, for example, than the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus (6.9 mm) or the iPhone Plus 6s (7.1 mm). However, only the Samsung is lighter (153 g), while ties with the weight of the iPhone Plus 6s (192 g), although it should be noted that this privacy Blackberry has plastic and not metal.
As for the screen, we can not put any hits. It is 5.4 inches, slightly smaller than the 5.5 inch such as those mentioned above and, in addition, is multitouch but 10 points with resolution QHD. It is clear that have done the homework Canadians in this regard.
As for the camera, the truth is that this privacy Blackberry holds the type in one of the points in which the Canadian brand used to suspend. To get an idea, gets 82 points into the DxOMark ranking. It is located in the post 14 but shares score with mobile already with some sill as iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6 and Sony Xperia Z3 + besides the iPhone 6s.
Ahead has all handsets launched in 2015 (... and some of 2014): Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Motorola Moto X Style, Moto Droid Turbo 2, LG G4, iPhone Plus 6s, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Sony Xperia Z5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, the latter just the head, Nexus 6 p.
Performance and battery
This is, perhaps, the point that any integer is left. It is not that the Snapdragon 808 is a "bad" processor, LG G4 has shown repeatedly that he was at the height... but we are talking about a team that was launched in April of 2015. We are already in January 2016 and to the doors of a Mobile World Congress 2016 where land Galaxy S7 and soon will be followed by LG G5, Huawei P9, etc. all of them with much more powerful processors and, above all, memory RAM which is estimated between 4 and 6 GB, and more than 32 GB in many cases.
The battery, on the other hand, shows one of the best data terminal. 3.410 mAh, a figure that few reach or exceed, such as the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium with its 3.430 mAh.
Conclusion: a great phone that in January 2016, is too expensive
Blackberry Priv, a priori, on the role and lack of try it above all for its unique design, is a great Android phone (although a Marshmallow update seems that it will slow down at the end of this quarter). Facilities that ensure good performance, a camera height, guaranteed auntonomia and unique features. What is the problem? The same one that had Apple with the iPhone 5 c, a price that is not according to the moment in which the equipment is released.
And is if Blackberry would have launched the Blackberry Priv last summer, would be talking about one of the largest mobile 2015 in Spain. But we are in January 2016 and 779 euros is a very high price for a terminal that is a processor and memory from the beginning of 2015, a level of 2014 mobile camera and a price similar to releases new stamp since we remember are 779 euros when Huawei Mate 8, for example, now you can buy at Amazon for 777 euros in its model d
