A Second Look on T-Mobile BlackBerry Priv

Last November of 2015, I had this chance to take AT&T BlackBerry Priv for personal experience and honestly I was very disappointed in its hardware quality and sub-par BlackBerry Hub experience.

As T-Mobile released BlackBerry Priv and Des Smith personally sent me one, in order for me test out for some couple of weeks. Thanks to its software updates over last months, deeper dive with Priv serving as my primary smartphone for a week, and much more solid piece of hardware, I am now considering swap from my old Passport to Priv.

One of my disappointments with the older Priv I tested was the device functionality of BlackBerry Hub. As I stated many times in most of my articles, Hub is one of the primary reasons to use BB10 OS device. I am not sure if I set it up incorrectly or if some of its software updates since Priv release fixed the issues I saw back in November, but BlackBerry Hub on Priv now functioning much like we see on BB10 and I could not be any happier.

If I to recall my old articles, I could not even add my gmail account on Hub on that first Priv so there were definitely issues way back November.

The BB Hub on Android serves as fantastic central communications utility and the only issues I found is with Facebook and Twitter. These connections take you out to apps with couple back button needed to get back to Hub.
