BlackBerry KEYone Review

      25 Comments on BlackBerry KEYone Review

The BlackBerry KEYone is more than just another anachronistic appeal to nostalgia. It’s the best BlackBerry on shelves today, bearing the best keyboard you can find on an Android phone in 2017. Lest you think I’m damning the BlackBerry KEYone with faint praise, remember that MrMobile values smartphones that stand out from the crowd – sometimes even more than he values phones with great battery life and outstanding build quality. The BlackBerry KEYone has all three of those assets in abundance … but is it enough to make up for its slight software stumbles? Find out in MrMobile’s BlackBerry KEYone Review!

MrMobile’s BlackBerry KEYone review was produced following 12 days with a BlackBerry KEYone review device on loan from BlackBerry Mobile. This handset replaced an earlier BlackBerry KEYone review unit that was deemed defective. It received two software updates during MrMobile’s time with it: most of the review was performed on software build AAK831, and an update to AAL093 arrived on the evening before BlackBerry KEYone review publication.

SPECIAL NOTE: Although CrackBerry does have a marketing relationship with BlackBerry Mobile, MrMobile is an independent entity within Mobile Nations. He was given the same amount of time with the KEYone as every other reviewer granted early access under the embargo agreement, and he received no compensation of any kind from BlackBerry Mobile or CrackBerry for this review (or any other piece of BlackBerry coverage).
