The keyboard phone makes a comeback

BlackBerry KEYone

from The Telegraph
This is a phone squarely for keyboard addicts. If you still pine for the old BlackBerry and want a physical keyboard in a phone, this is almost perfect. It's the phone that should have made five years ago. In 2017, it might be too late, but it's good to have BlackBerry back... Full review

Great build quality, unreal battery life

BlackBerry KEYone

from Pocketnow
The BlackBerry KEYone is a unique offering in the sea of flat slabs that we find in 2017. It definitely has a niche, and we're sure that it'll perform well there, but it's interesting to see just how little this phone is about just the keyboard... Full review

Productivity with a physical keyboard

BlackBerry KEYone

from G Style Magazine

For the multitasker that likes to do everything from social media to managing their emails it will be great for you. Software wise its snappy and its running the latest version of Android which some flagships aren’t. Hopefully it continues this path. Battery life is some of the best I seen on any device thanks to its huge size and midrange processor which is good but also can cause you slight delays maybe doing some gaming or having say 10-15+ apps open at once. But most of all is can you go to a keyboard? I think if you give the Blackberry KEYone some time and warm up to it you might... Full review

Upgraded, outdated

BlackBerry KEYone

from Wired

Going forward, phones are virtual- and augmented-reality tools. They’re for taking and sharing photos, video chatting, playing games, and so much more. Even within text boxes, we’re using emoji and stickers and voice-typing and GIFs and a thousand other things you can’t do with three rows of hardware QWERTY keys. Most of all, the hardware keyboard was never better. It doesn’t help you type faster, doesn’t make you more productive, doesn’t make you look cool or seem more professional. BlackBerry nostalgia is like missing MS-DOS or switching back to cassett... Full review

A triumphant return to form for the BlackBerry brand

BlackBerry KEYone

from The Next Web
At $599 (£499 in the UK, and €549 in Europe), it’s pretty pricey compared to phones with similar guts. But you’re not paying for the silicon inside the device, but rather the experience, and the KEYone offers an unsurpassed productivity experience compared to anything else on the market... Full review

BlackBerry's bold return to form

BlackBerry KEYone

from Pocket-lint
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 even be the device to convince older BB fans to leave their newer iPhone or Galaxy device behind... Full review

The BlackBerry that should have been released years ago

BlackBerry KEYone

from Mashable
I've been testing the KEYone for a little over a week and as with every phone, there's a lot I like and dislike. Yes, the KEYone is a BlackBerry and has a keyboard in an era of touchscreen-only phones, but it's also running Android, and that makes all the difference. The apps problem that plagued BlackBerry's old phones is no longer an issue with the KEYone... Full review

A messaging marvel for a niche audience

BlackBerry KEYone

from PC Magazine

TCL keeps the faith with the BlackBerry KeyOne, and the faithful shall be rewarded. Using this phone for five days, I kept thinking, "I could stick with this." Words are my thing, after all, and this phone really prioritizes them. But then I realized I've moved on, and I personally prefer the Galaxy S8's superior camera and always-on display. 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... Full review

Not a bad phone, but far, far too expensive

BlackBerry KEYone

from Alphr
On one level I could see myself really going for the BlackBerry KeyOne. I like its chunky stylings, the screen is good, and it runs Android so the app question that used to dog BlackBerry is now a moot point. But I just can’t get past that price. If you pay £500 for this, you are being taken for a ride. The specifications inside aren't good enough for a handset at this price and the fact you can get our favourite Android phone for £101 less, which has far better performance, simply underlines that fact...

A step back in time that I really want to love

BlackBerry KEYone

from 9to5Google
The Keyone isn’t a bad phone — it’s just not for everyone. I really want to love this phone, but it’s not quite for a user like me. BlackBerry has a very specific demographic in mind for the Keyone, and it’s for those who use their phones all day for messaging and sending emails, not for media, games, and the like... Full review

It is a great phone

BlackBerry Z3

Price and other specifications are also good. But drawback is lack of dual sim as well unsupportance of NFC and limited active frames.

Blackberry is back in the game with the Z30. The sound quality of the phone is excellent. Texting a is as good as any Samsung or iPhone I have tried. The Z30 excels with the reliable long battery life which is critical in an office setting. The web browser is as quick as any I have used on any cell phone. I frankly don't care if the phone doesn't have mind boggling screen resolution, it is a phone not a camera, and is more than adequate. Less

Great comeback for BlackBerry

BlackBerry Z30

Although mine only has an above average battery life, I found the HUB and swipe much more fluent than other phones I've had. The browser is very fast and it surprised me by the quality of the screen. All in all, I would defiantly recommend this phone to friends and colleagues alike.

If you are looking for a communication device rather than a camera then do not overlook the Z30. The upgraded platform is app friendly and I love the Hub, where I can get all my messages in one convenient spot. Most of all, being a Canadian, I get to support a national company.

About BlackBerry

Research in Motion, RIM, is a Canadian-based wireless device company famous for the development of the BlackBerry smart phone line.

RIM was founded by Mike Lazaridis and is based in Waterloo, Ontario. Before the development of the BlackBerry, RIM worked with RAM Mobile Date and Ericsson, assisting in converting the Ericsson-developed Mobitex wireless data network into a two-way paging and wireless email network.

RIM has gone on to develop many different BlackBerry devices, which have become the smart phone of choice among business and government professionals. So loyal are BlackBerry users that the devices have come to be known as Crackberries, a back-door joke aimed at users who claim they cannot live without them.

Major competitors include Apple Inc., HTC, Palm, Motorola, Samsung and others.
