BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition hands-on

 

BlackBerry KEYone review: Price release date and specs revealed

Solid security ; Useful productivity features ; Excellent battery

Underpowered CPU ; Expensive ; Physical keyboard won't be for everyone

Battery life is one area that the KEYone excels at. Powered by a hefty 3505mAh cell, the KEYone has one of the longest-lasting batteries around.

BlackBerry KeyOne

 

BlackBerry smartphones don't have the clout they used to, but the truth is, since it ditched BB10 for Android, the company has released some pretty decent handsets.

BlackBerry KeyOne review: BlackBerry's bold return to form

 

If there was ever a device to convince BlackBerry loyalists to jump onboard Android, this is it. It's a more complete package than the PRIV was, and

Keyboard implementation and programmable shortcuts are brilliant ; Great battery life ; Software additions enhance Android

Inevitable stretch/reposition to reach parts of the screen ; The power button is in the wrong place

If there was ever a device to convince BlackBerry loyalists to jump onboard Android, the KeyOne is it. It's a more complete package than the Priv was, and is a much more compelling device than either of the two most recent all-touch phones. It might...

BlackBerry KeyOne review

 

BlackBerry's back and it's never looked so good

Ergonomic keyboard with clever functionality ; Decent battery life with fast charging ; Sharp screen with great speakers to match ; Build quality stands out

Small screen not great for watching movies ; Keyboard gets in the way of gaming ; Camera performance could be better

The best BlackBerry we’ve seen in years, but with a design that limits its fun factor

BlackBerry KeyOne review

 

The comeback KeyOne

Physical keyboard ; Sophisticated high-end design ; Smart, secure software

Not great at entertainment ; Mid-range phone chipset ; No dual-SIM or dual speaker

BlackBerry KeyOne is a sophisticated-looking smartphone that resurrects a physical keyboard in the modern Android era. Its tactical QWERTY keyboard offers a dose of nostalgia, while its smart and secure software give businesses some peace of mind. Just...

BlackBerry 2017 review

 

A real BlackBerry running Android - physical keyboard included

Tactile keyboard feels good ; Android 7.0 Nougat is here ; Strong enterprise software

Does it still have an audience? ; A very early prototype

The new BlackBerry for 2017 is so new that TCL hasn't finished with the design or specs, but what we've seen gives us the best of familiar hardware and some of the newest Android software.

BlackBerry Keyone review: The return of the keyboard warrior

 

The BlackBerry Keyone is here, and it isn't half bad – but do you really need that keyboard?

Physical keyboard ; MicroSD card slot

Low power core components ; Small 4.5in screen size ; Not great value

My guess is that, if you really think about it and weigh-up the options, you’ll almost certainly come to the conclusion that this isn’t the smartphone for you, and you’d be better off buying any number of its rivals at around this price.

BlackBerry KEYOne Review: In Depth

 

BlackBerry KEYOne Review: BlackBerry's first smartphone of 2017 is a cunning blend of old and new. With its Android OS boosted by BlackBerry tweaks and...

Great battery life ; Well-designed keyboard ; Useful Android additions

Limited performance ; Camera bettered by rivals ; Dinky screen

This handset boasts plenty of great features, all wrapped up in a smart business-like frame. However, many similarly-priced rivals boast better performance and more compact design, as well as smarter camera tech..

BlackBerry KEYone review

 

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It's not for everyone though, in fact, it's not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.

But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017,...
