BlackBerry KEY2 review: The undisputed keyboard king

 

The BlackBerry KEY2 isn't the first Android-powered BlackBerry, but it is by far the best. Its blend of style, solid performance, a fantastic physical keyboard and a long-lasting battery more than enough to win over one-time BlackBerry devotees and...

Long-lasting battery ; Fantastic physical keyboard ; Multitasking is lightning-fast ; Sleeker physical design

Camera can be hit-or-miss ; Sometimes confusing button placement ; $650 is pricey for a mid-range device

Chris is Engadget's senior mobile editor and moonlights as a professional moment ruiner. His early years were spent taking apart Sega consoles and writing awful fan fiction. That passion for electronics and words would eventually lead him to covering...

BlackBerry KEY2 review: How the keyboard became my Android power tool

 

While the BlackBerry KEY2 focuses on business users, it's keyboard makes this phone a powerhouse for any Android user.

Tactile keyboard is a treat to use ; Speed Key unlocks new navigation possibilities ; Mediocre hardware performs like a champ

Small screen with large bezels

I may have moved on to another phone, but the KEY2 stays with me in spirit. I find myself missing the keyboard. It’s the only Android phone I’ve used this year that truly had me excited. So whether you are an ex-BlackBerry user wondering if you should...

BlackBerry Key2

 

The Key2 will thrill BlackBerry devotees with a great little keyboard and more privacy control than you'll get on other Android smartphones.

Nice physical keyboard with powerful shortcut key. Focused on security and privacy.

Dim screen. Disappointing cameras.

BlackBerry KEY2 Smartphone Review

 

A BlackBerry with a physical keyboard. The BlackBerry KEY2 combines the manufacturer's traditional physical keyboard with a few special security features that also runs Android OS. Find out what the KEY2 is good for in this review.

meaningful security and business features ; physical keyboard for frequent typists ; fast CPU

relatively small display ; flat sound ; poor camera performance in low-light

The days of BlackBerry OS are over, but the BlackBerry KEY2 is still a business-centric device. The KEY2 has a physical keyboard that is almost as quick to type on as a virtual keyboard after some practice. The KEY2 scores highly for its snappy SoC and...

BlackBerry KEY2 Review: Growing keys, shrinking audience

 

If we're giving out awards for smartphone dedication in the face of modernity, the BlackBerry KEY2 should probably get a spot on the podium. TCL's 2018 flagship continues to obstinately buck the trend for full-touch, refining its physical keyboard and...

If you want hardware QWERTY in 2018, this is your phone ; Build quality is exemplary ; Security and software update commitments are admirable ; Excellent battery life

Physical keyboards just aren't as flexible as virtual ; Camera is only average ; Still no wireless charging ; Still not waterproof

BlackBerry KEY2 Review

 

The BlackBerry KEY2 is the follow-up to last year's QWERTY-keyboard-packing KEYone. It follows in the footsteps of its predecessor by retaining the form factor, but comes with a tweaked design, new features, and all the typical hardware upgrades found...

Exceptionally long-lasting battery ; Useful security & privacy features ; Sharp photos captured by the camera under ideal settings ; Tactile keyboard ; Really fast recharge time

Choppy graphics processing performance ; $650 cost makes it tough to compete as a mid-ranger ; Muddy image/video capture under low light

BlackBerry KEY2 review: An old-school concept, updated Review | ZDNet

 

The KEY2 will appeal most to BlackBerry fans who want to continue using a keyboard-equipped handset. For others, giving up today's larger screens might be too much of an ask.

Excellent 4.5-inch screen ; Great keyboard with some good features ; Some well thought-out software additions ; Good battery life

Average dual 12MP rear cameras ; Relatively expensive

BlackBerry Key2 LE review: For the frugal BlackBerry loyalist

 

The BlackBerry Key2 LE is a great option for keyboard loyalists who can't splurge. Everyone else should keep walking.

Utilitarian design ; Great keyboard ; Good battery life

Poky performance ; Disappointing cameras ; BlackBerry has a bad reputation with software updates
