DTEK50 and PRIV are updating

I have been checking for updates every single day since the update cycle started. The first updates were for PRIV but I did not get them. Today I received the very same update that shipped 12 days ago:

It is pretty clear that the PRIV update to my phone has simply been delayed. Exactly the same version. The DTEK50 has a much higher build number which at least hints at a later release date.

On the upside: BlackBerry delivers its monthly Android updates for all devices. It can still improve on the timely delivery. But that is a lot more than most other OEMs do.

Are there any birds tweeting about Nougat treats for thr Priv?

Mercury is running Nougat. To be announced in nine days, hopefully shipping shortly thereafter. Then it needs at least one update before BlackBerry can focus on updating old devices. I'd wager April/May. The question is if BlackBerry wants to do it. PRIV shipped with Lollipop and already has one major update.

Did the update yesterday to build AAJ221 and the phone now has multiple issues. Phone doesn't ring for incoming calls
Calendar shows a notification when there isn't one
Cannot access the menu options from swiping from the top down
Recent button "square" does not work
screen will randomly swipe by itself left to right to a black screen and then reset to home screen

On and on and on.......DTEK50
