The best BlackBerry in years

BlackBerry KEYone

from finder.com.au
The BlackBerry KEYone is a great option for diehard keyboard-using fans of the platform, but you're not exactly awash with keyboard-toting options. In the wider Android sphere at this price point you're entirely spoilt for better choices... Full review

A trip down memory lane, but not a fantastic smartphone

BlackBerry KEYone

from Beta News
There's no denying that the BlackBerry KEYone is the company's most advanced smartphone to date -- but it still feels like it's lacking something. In an age where smartphone manufacturers are constantly battling to shave off that extra millimeter to ensure a smooth and slimline build, the KEYone bulky design makes it stand out for all the wrong reasons. The device itself is enjoyable to use -- particularly if you're a fan of the physical keyboard -- but there are a few too many fiddly features and quirks that prevent us giving the KEYone a high score...

Well-designed keyboard, great battery life

BlackBerry KEYone

from Recombu
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. Which means your choice to purchase a KEYOne will rest on two unique features. The main selling point is that physical keyboard, something no other phone manufacturer right now offers. We also love the BB tweaks to Android, including the excellent Hub app and nifty shortcuts...

Once more unto the breach

BlackBerry KEYone

from Softpedia
So here’s the BlackBerry status quo: if you want to buy one of their smartphones, you get to choose between bland Alcatel clones with full touch displays (DTEK50, DTEK60) or a cool-looking, fingerprint-reading, solid-built device incapacitated by a cut-off display (KEYone). It’s a real pity, because the world needs more Android devices with bloatware-free system software, timely security updates, design that stands out and excellent battery life. But not physical keyboards!.. Full review

Fails to switch on the charm

BlackBerry KEYone

from IT Pro
The BlackBerry Keyone showed signs of promise, but ultimately its positive points just can't overcome the underpowered hardware and design compromise that plague it. Unless you're dead-set on having a physical keyboard, the Keyone isn;t really worth your time... Full review

Excellent design, wonderful keyboard

BlackBerry KEYone

from Know Your Mobile
A lot of people won't like this phone. Most will simply write it off as yet another failure from BlackBerry, a company still clinging to QWERTY keyboards and “weird” notions about “security”… But they’re wrong. This phone is unique, unusual, powerful and it has a brilliant camera and excellent user experience. I had an absolute blast testing this phone, way more than I did when using the LG G6, and when I’d finished testing it I wanted to to carry on using it... Full review

Outstanding build and industrial design

BlackBerry KEYone

from Canadian Reviewer
TCL Communications has managed to resurrect many of the features and design touches that have BlackBerry devices legendary messaging smartphones. The ability to run millions of Android applications natively makes this one of the most versatile and productive devices in the market right now. While some may see the BlackBerry Mobile KEYone as a nostalgia play catering to BlackBerry loyalists, this is a smartphone that will impress even new users looking for a solid, serious, and no-nonsense device that’s designed for business. ­­­­..

Make or break

BlackBerry KEYone

from GSMArena
If you are looking for a smartphone that will multitask like a beast and play high frame-rate games, then this is not the device for you. This phone is more for the person who barely has time to waste on a smartphone or carries a separate phone for work. It's for the person who needs to get stuff done and is always on the move, like event planners, real estate agents, or anyone else working out on the field... Full review

Strange keyboard-toting smartphone impresses, but likely has limited appeal

BlackBerry KEYone

from The Inquirer
Combining the thoughtful - largely productivity-focused - OS tweaks with a truly smart keyboard (again, providing you're really, really sure you want a physical QWERTY) is a genuinely unique and compelling proposition. The problem, I suspect, is that most people would rather watch YouTube without black bars than use a physical keyboard on their phone in 2017... Full review

A strange device that brings the best of BlackBerry and Android together

BlackBerry KEYone

from V3
At £499, the BlackBerry KeyOne isn't a no-brainer purchase, but the price of the handset isn't quite as relevant here as it is on other phones. There are so few options for a Qwerty-equipped Android phone, let alone one that's actually worth using, that cost alone probably won't be the deciding factor. Plus, of course, a significant part of BlackBerry's proposition is still aimed at businesses, which aren't as price-sensitive to individual device costs... 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.
