DESIGN AND DISPLAY

Looks and feels great

The elegant aluminum frame on the BlackBerry KEY2 gives added durability, while the soft touch back makes it good to hold as well, with greater grip and comfort.

 

The keyboard, no secret

The keyboard is still one of the standout features of the BlackBerry KEY2, and it’s been redesigned to make it even easier to type on the go. The all-new Speed Key lets you access the apps, contacts and functions you use most of all at any time – from anywhere on your device.

 

CAMERA

Cameras at the double

The BlackBerry KEY2 boasts not one camera, but two. There are two 12MP cameras, one with a f/1.8 aperture and the other with a f/2.6 aperture. Together, these will give you great results – bright, clear photos at any time of the day.

 

Can I get a close-up?

Get closer to the action with the BlackBerry KEY2’s Super Zoom capability:

Take great photos with awesome detail, even from further away. And get all arty with a Bokeh effect, giving you a crisp foreground and a blurred background.

 

UNDER THE HOOD

So much space

You’ll have room for all your favourite apps, photos and songs, thanks to a whopping 64GB of storage.

BlackBerry KEY2 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Previous KeyONE user now Using Key2 I have been using BB since forever as a personal phone, mainly because i love the Hub and also typing on keys. Changes from keyone: I purchased this phone a week ago I had the Keyone last year since the launch date. Definitely prefer this to the Keyone as they have improved the small things that needed Improving. Keyone vs Key2 Weight: One of the main things about this is its so much lighter than the KeyOne and feels less bulky, more sleek. Now when holding my keyOne it feels very heavy. Even though its a slight weight difference it still makes a change. Buttons: These buttons are a lot lighter, Matter and slightly bigger than the previous glossy ones (slightly stiffer) on the KeyOne. Typing is a lot quicker and less pressure when pressing keys Side Keys: I was always accidently pressing the side buttons on the keyone this one they are all on 1 side and power has a texture on it to stop you from confusing it with the convenience key. Screen: I have noticed this screen resolution looks better and brighter than the KeyOne I haven't checked if there is a difference in resolution for the Key2 but I can see a difference. Keyboard track pad: I'm not sure if anyone else had a bit of a rubbish track pad on the KeyOne but mine wasnt smooth and didnt scroll 100% properly/smoothly so i never bothered using it to scroll. On this one however it is super smooth and I actually use this when scrolling IG etc :) Camera: Camera is a lot better especially the front camera havent tested out the dual lens but definitely sharper pictures from Keyone comes with filters etc. A different feature is the convenience short cut key button. This button allows you to use the letter short cuts without having to return to the home screen. Havent had to use this yet but nice to have the option. Overall I am most happy with weight quick typing look and side buttons all on the same side. This is also a lot faster than my KeyOne and hasnt lagged at all, hope it never does! Battery life is still great dont know if its longer than keyone or the same but defo can go a whole day with no charge (make sure location is off as it drains it) I have been using my phone at work today from 9:30am to 3pm and the battery is at 85%

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Close but no cigar Looks and feels great, short keys are amazing... But in a day in age where cameras are sooo good. how can this one be so bad...I mean for example the selfie camera looks like its 6 years old and the main camera is better with the right light. Also another gripe is the screen brightness is soo dim : ( Do not put this beside a Samsung screen. I expected more form blackberry. If if wasn't for those two things I would recommend and still have mine. Maybe the Key3 will come through. If you don't mind those two things the its a good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the keyboard! I've had this phone for about a month now and honestly i can say i am in love with it. Features all the same things that you can find in Samsung's and Iphone's, such as play store for apps like Instagram and Whatsapp. Camera Quality not the best front camera quality really poor but for me its not a problem as i use this phone for business purposes. Battery life is great, it lasts me the whole day and i put it in charge at 10pm when it gets to 30%. Phone charges to 100% in literally 20 minutes which is so continent especially when you're in a rush. Other than the camera quality the phone itself is a 10/10.
