    BlackBerry’s iconic keyboard is back, but with a difference. Now you can set shortcuts to every button, opening apps in an instant.

  • Android-powered

    The KEYone runs on the world’s most popular mobile operating system, Android by Google.

Design and display

Breaking the mould

The KEYone has a 4.5-inch display with Full HD resolution - the distinctly different shape making way for the smart keyboard. It takes up less room than an on-screen one, and leaves you with more display to play with.  

Keyboard shortcuts

Each of the 52 keys can be programmed to support a shortcut with a long-press. So, you could save ‘I” for Instagram or “C” for camera - it’s up to you. There’s also a secret fingerprint scanner inside the space bar.

 

Camera

Built with expertise

On the back of the smartphone is a powerful 12MP camera, built with Sony’s industry-leading camera expertise. The sensor features large 1.55μm pixels, to let in loads of light for bright and colourful photos, and it can shoot video in 4K.

Front-facing lens

On the front of the phone is a secondary camera, able to film video in Full HD. The 8MP sensor is perfect for video chatting, using the likes of Skype, or Google’s own, Duo

Under the hood

Super secure

With BlackBerry’s security software, the KEYone is one of the most secure Android smartphones available. You’ll receive monthly security updates - free to download – and the DTEK security app comes pre-installed on the device.  

Plenty of power

A 2.0GHz octa-core processor is in charge of keeping all your favourite apps and games running smoothly, backed up by 3GB RAM. If that’s not enough there’s also a huge 3,505mAh battery, which is one of the largest cell capacities available at the moment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best phone I've ever used! (That includes iPhoneX) Quite simply, the best phone I've ever used! (And That includes iPhoneX!) Took me a while to adjust to the 'Robot' operating system. But when you're there, it has all the strengths and finesse of a BlackBerry phone. Superb build and oh, that gorgeous 'Signature' keyboard! Using Robot?....Then forget the rest, buy the best! (Users? Abramovich, Trump, Lord Sugar, Obama, ect, ect.,...Need I say more!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Phone I loved my BB Classic and didn't want to give it up but, after much research, it only took a couple of hours to fall in love with my Black 64GB Keyone. It is everything you've come to love from BB and more. Battery Life is excellent. Camera is amazing. Performance is second to none. Setup was simple and intuitive; and I was able to easily transfer data to my new phone. The fingerprint scanner is a great addition and it still has the much loved physical keyboard. I'm really happy with my new phone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Let Down This review comes with a heavy heart as I was very enthusiastic for getting this phone. I read reviews etc and did lots of research before investing in this phone. When it arrived I was very excited, and for the first few months I couldn't sing this phones praises loud enough. The wonders of android software with the blackberry physical keyboard was at the time, fantastic. At the 7 month mark problems started. First common apps, like Messanger, Outlook, Facebook, Twitter etc would crash and cause a force quit of the phone. This would continue after restarting the phone, and resetting it back to factory settings. At 12 months in the following happened. The screen fell out of the phone...yes you did not misread that. The screen fell off/out of the phone. This was after general use, nothing major, no drops etc. A quick google search found that there was defective glue used to hold the display screen in place. I had it replaced, it happened again. At 14 months in, the fingerprint scanner stopped working. The space bar registered but it wouldn't scan fingerprint. making it less secure. Eventually common apps at 15 months in like contacts would freeze and key strokes/presses wouldn't register. Now, it may be that I was unfortunate and got a defective model. All I would say is, get a samsung, and connect a bluetooth keyboard if your dying for that physical keyboard feel. Not as practical, but I prefer reliability over a physical keyboard. With that in mind, if you do decide to buy I hope you have a better experience than what I had.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Regret buying this phone I bought this phone just over a year ago. The keyboard is fantastic, the camera can take nice photos and the battery life cannot be beaten. however, This phone is simply terrible, it crashes on multiple apps, freezes constantly (literally a couple of times an hour) it's incredibly slow and personally I cannot wait until I get rid of it.
