At the end of January, we shared with you the best Android phones you could walk into a Verizon store and buy. Some of you agreed with our picks, while others disagreed and pointed out that there are far better phones that work on Verizon, even if they aren’t sold there. While we agree that the Nexus 6P and Moto X Pure Edition would likely be on each list for each carrier, they aren’t sold at Verizon stores and thus were left out. Same goes for today’s list, which is a short list of the best Android phones on AT&T.
The list of phones below are those that can actually be purchased at an AT&T store, not those that could technically work if you knew how and where to buy one. So, we’ve got three options for you below, two of which are/were unique to AT&T at one time or another.
The BlackBerry Priv is making its way to T-Mobile, available beginning January 26 for $0 down through JUMP! On Demand. After a solid amount of time with the Priv only available through AT&T, the Priv has been receiving updates here and there, focusing on the rear-facing camera and software features. The device should receive just as much love on T-Mobile, so if a QWERTY keyboard is something you have been missing, now is the time. (more…)
T-Mobile’s John Legere announced availability of the BlackBerry Priv for the carrier this morning, stating that BlackBerry’s Android device will become available on January 26. At this time, exact pricing is unknown, but the Priv is not the only new device coming to T-Mobile. (more…)
According to a leaked image, the BlackBerry Priv will hit T-Mobile’s network on January 26, bringing an official end to the current exclusive AT&T holds on the device. If the image is to be believed, then not only can BlackBerry fans pick up the device through T-Mobile, but Verizon also confirmed last month that it will also carry the device, “soon.” (more…)
Blackberry is pushing its first update to the Priv, today, with improvements for the camera and the phone’s performance in tow. The update also should help with stability issues and further enhance security. (more…)
The BlackBerry Priv is, in my opinion, the most important phone of the year. That’s not something I say lightly. The Priv gets so many things right and has a uniquely beneficial experience that you can’t get on any other device, but like every other phone there are flaws. Is the Priv the phone of the year or just another nail in BlackBerry’s (née RIM) coffin?
This is our BlackBerry Priv review. (more…)
According to new renders hitting the web, the Priv won’t be the only Android device we see from BlackBerry. This morning, images of the Vienna are hitting the web, showing a more standard appearance from what we expect out of BlackBerry.
On the Vienna, there is no slider, as the physical keyboard is simply always present on the front of the device. There is of course a somewhat large touchscreen as well, in addition to three physical buttons directly below the display for your basic Android commands like Back, Home, and Multitasking. (more…)
Oh, hey, physical keyboard lovers. We have a special treat for you today in the form of the Blackberry Priv. What’s that? There aren’t any real keyboard lovers left, only those who once thought they loved physical keyboards before realizing that on-screen keyboards were better but now are trying to re-convince themselves that maybe, just maybe, a physical keyboard made by Blackberry that is attached to mostly stock Android could be a winner? Yeah, well, this is for you! (more…)
