While the Pro1 doesn't quite cost top-tier flagship buck, you can still pick up more powerful phones for less - a prime example being the excellent Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro. That said, if you long for a physical QWERTY keyboard that feels robust, there's no real competition out now.

The F(X)tec Pro1 is a phone that does absolutely everything it can to get the "QWERTY horizontal sliding Android phone" form right. It's solid, doesn't wobble, has a keyboard that seems really nice on first looks, and a clean (but optimised) software experience. But the question is, are there enough...

There's a particular market for a phone with a physical keyboard, and with its slide-out design the Pro1 is trying to offer it in a fairly unique way that we've not seen recently. The raw spec of the phone isn't going to blow you away, and for that reason alone some may consider it highly priced, but we're excited to see how well the physical keyboard works and whether that makes it worth buying.

When you consider the $649 price tag, we might have expected to see better specs, but the processor should still deliver the performance you'd expect from a niche flagship product. Ultimately, F(x)tec know one thing for certain – they are offering something that's not available anywhere else. There are many people out there who miss the devices of old, and the F(x)tec certainly delivers on this promise.

The number one question remaining is if this particular device is worth your money or not. There are a few ways of looking at it, but I’m leaning towards a yes. At a starting price of $649 it seems pricey, but keep in mind that’s what the Blackberry Key2 retailed for. This is, more or less, the Blackberry Key2 but better in every way. It’s got a better chipset, a better camera, and a better keyboard, all in one package that cost the same at launch. My only gripe with that comparison is that the Blackberry Key2 has all the company’s security enclave, while the F(x)tec Pro 1 does not. Even still, as a productivity device, the F(x)tec wins hands down.
