Blackberry Priv: first impressions

1 year, 4 months ago
25 days of waiting later after the order on October 23 my Priv reached to me. Let's look that Blackberry prepared for us and the innovation which was how promised in March meets expectations. It is necessary to tell, waiting turned out long, I managed even to swear with shop and support desk of the vendor.

For me with this phone it is connected long, it is more than five years, waiting of the new device with QWERTY keyboard: I went three years with Nokia N900, after her technical death (the charge controller) was forced to take second-hand HTC A7272 (in Russia it was known as HTC Desire Z), then one and a half years HTC One Dual SIM used. Priv applies for being my phone for a long time again.
I will not focus attention on technical details, they can be found according to the name of the device in the first page of search issue.

As far as Blackberry was succeeded to make phone safe?
Whether backward compatibility with applications and an ecosystem of Blackberry is saved? Whether it is convenient to enter from the keyboard in Russian?
