blackberry priv review aa (15 of 32)

BlackBerry Priv owners were able to get an early taste of Android 6.0 Marshmallow at the beginning of April, and now the company is starting the official rollout today. For those who bought the unlocked Priv through ShopBlackBerry.com, your update is now available for download. If you happen to own a carrier variant, you’ll need to wait until Tuesday, May 3rd to snag the update.

Among the many notable features that Marshmallow brings to the table like Doze mode, granular application permissions, Google Now on Tap, and more, BlackBerry has also thrown in quite a few of their own tweaks to the OS. You’ll find a lengthy changelog in the blog post released earlier today.
