This review is from: BlackBerry Priv STV100-1 Unlocked GSM Slider Android Cell Phone - Black
Pros: This is a great phone. It has all of the flagship features and works very smoothly. There is simply no other way to get a physical keyboard on a flagship Android phone. And the capacitive physical keyboard is awesome, letting you type on it but still being able to use many of the same gestures that you would on the virtual keyboard. Battery life is the best I have seen in a cell phone since my old Blackberry Bold (vs. LG G3, Nexus 4, Lumia 820, Moto G, LG Optimus F3, BB Z10 among others).
Voice Quality is excellent. It is not the very best I have ever heard (That title belongs to an old Motorola Gen 3 RAZR) but is comparable to other flagship phones.
I haven't experienced any slowness or choppiness and it doesn't get any warmer than any other cell phone I have ever owned.
The screen is awesome. My only complaint is that it just doesn't quite get bright enough in bright, bright mid day sun like the G3. It is still usable but it will take just a bit more work and I wouldn't recommend watching a movie at Noon with the sun directly overhead.
Cons: I purchased this phone from vendor "Mango Wireless" thinking it would be great since AT&T is my carrier and will be for the forseeable future. However, while this phone may have been an AT&T phone at one point, AT&T will not support it since somewhere along the line the model description that is locked to the IMEI has been altered to "VEN-A". AT&T WILL NOT SUPPORT THIS PHONE AND THE VENDOR SHOULD NOT BE SELLING IT AS AN AT&T PHONE.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good and cheap. You can find them every now and then for just a little over $80. That makes it $0.37/GB. Good I/O and they are quiet & cool.
Cons: None, I haven't had any issues, yet.
Other Thoughts: Been using them for 8 months & 4 months respectively in my FlexRAID setup. 1 is used as the parity and the other is just data storage. They work just fine in this setup.READ FULL REVIEW
