Our forums are about to get super awesome, but we need YOUR help!

It's been quite awhile since our forums got a refresh, and they're starting to look a little outdated. And sometimes, as many of you have mentioned in the past, they can load a bit on the slow side too. We've heard all your feedback and definitely appreciate hearing from you about how we can make the site better for everyone! Over the last several months our tech and design teams have been working SUPER hard to create a new forum for CrackBerry readers that is both functional AND visually pleasing. As you can imagine, redesigning everything was a pretty massive undertaking, and not something we wanted to rush. The good news is we are now ready to test out the new design, but we NEED YOUR HELP.

If you're interested in helping us test the new design, please head on over to this forum thread to get started. Your feedback is crucial to this process, because we want the redesign to be something YOU are happy to use! And who knows, maybe your feedback will earn you a t-shirt from your favorite Mobile Nations site!

Please note, these updates are not related to our CrackBerry apps. This is just the web version of our forums.

Again, hit up this link to learn how you can easily activate the new design right now. We'll talk with you in the forums!!

The BlackBerry Priv Review Re-Do: before Mercury rises

It's been 14 months since the BlackBerry Priv launched, and it still does some things amazingly well -- but amazingly slow. The Priv is still a security powerhouse, and has some great features, but why does it take so long to launch everything?

MrMobile takes us way way back to November of 2015 (were we ever so young?) and talks what's good, what's ugly, and what to look forward to when we finally get our hands on Mercury. Michael Fisher knows his phones, and wants to impart his knowledge about what's good onto you. Watch this video and look back and forward at the same time. Once you get un-cross-eyed from that, leave us a note in the comments letting us know what you think!

Using Bluetooth earbuds while exercising or enjoying outdoor activities makes life oh so sweet. Unfortunately, the market is saturated with headphones, with most options ending up low quality and disappointing. What you need is a high-quality set of earbuds that you can use in any scenario, and you need earbuds that are built to last.
