Blackberry Priv: Android Marshmallow Saved Its Reputation

By  | 

It has been a roller coaster ride for the year-old Blackberry Priv. The device was built to represent Blackberry’s first attempt in the competitive world of Android and it has been experiencing many ups and downs.

The Priv came out strong as it carries the best hardwares of that time with some Blackberry exclusive features. Along the way, the Priv encountered several software issues like overheating, occasional crashing and also a downgraded battery life.

Just when the Priv users were about to give up on the phone, Blackberry released the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the device. The update managed to fix every major fault on the Priv and it changed the device for the better.

Overheating is no longer an often thing, battery life can now achieve up to 6 hours of screen-on-time and the screen looks better with the warm design of the Marshmallow OS. The timing of the Marshmallow update can’t be any more perfect for the Priv as it truly saved the device from hatred.
