BlackBerry PRIV :: I love this feature

by Volker Weber

This has to be one of the coolest features of the BlackBerry PRIV. When you plug this thing in, there is an animated line that runs from the plug and around the corner to the long side of the screen, telling you how the charge is going. It starts yellow, it probably starts red, but I never ran down the battery far enough. Then it turns green as the charging process continues. And not only is the length of the green line the charge percentage, it also gives you the numbers and how long it will take with this charger to fill it up completely. Awesome.

Cool feature. I whish all phones had something like this.

True, looking great!

Johannes, not an option for all phones. You need an OLED screen. On LCDs you would need to power the LED backlight.

Which would not be too bad during charging. I would be a little concerned about burn in.

You want to charge quickly. And you don't know that it moves.

Volker Weber, 2016-05-07

The letters and time - yes. But the bar?

I see, thanks. Wonder, if it is patented or something, as it indeed is such a brilliant idea.

At least if you use an supported Qualcomm Quickcharger (such as Aukey for example) with the Priv, the estimated time for a full charge is around 60 Minutes....
