BlackBerry KeyOne review

 

BlackBerry's KeyOne is the best smartphone you can buy if you want a physical keyboard.

Excellent battery life ; Great keyboard customization options ; Brick-like build quality ; Capable camera ; Top-notch security

Occasional performance stutters ; Bulky, not ergonomic ; Subpar navigation icons

BlackBerry’s KeyOne offers an excellent keyboard, where every key can act like shortcuts for apps and actions. It has more than a day of battery capacity, and is equipped with a capable rear camera. Our only issues are the KeyOne’s occasional...

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 review: Vintage vibes and a modern OS

 

The third time really is the charm. The earlier Android phones BlackBerry made with partner TCL felt generic, but the KEYone is an impressive device that channels the style and functionality of classic models. Even better, the KEYone is a respectable...

BlackBerry fans will dig the keyboard ; Respectable battery life ; Solid mid-range performance ; Has the best camera of any BlackBerry

The keyboard doesn’t make sense for some ; Camera sometimes struggles with exposure ; Some annoying oversights in software

I really, really didn't expect to like the BlackBerry KEYone. Sure, I have a lingering attachment to this once-great mobile brand, and I do like a good underdog story. Putting those highly personal things aside, though, and we're left with an...

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.

MWC 2017: BlackBerry KEYone hands-on

 

TCL is finally done with its first true BlackBerry handset and we have to say, it looks even better than when we first saw it as the Mercury. Petnamed DTEK70 and Mercury in the past, the device is now called KEYone and we finally have the full specs...

BlackBerry KeyOne

 

With its excellent hardware keyboard, BlackBerry's Android-powered KeyOne phone is a messaging marvel for a niche audience.

Fantastic physical keyboard. Well-balanced feel. Long battery life. Good speakerphone.

Cameras aren't terrific. Can be a little slow.

But it's okay if you haven't moved on. The KeyOne doesn't force you to make the painful compromises the Classic and Priv did: It's a mainstream Android phone running all of the latest apps, and it doesn't feel like it weighs a pound and a half. TCL and...

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.
