  • Intelligent keyboard

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

  • Powerful camera

    The 12MP rear camera is powered by a Sony IMX378 sensor, and has large pixels to capture lots of light for bright photos.

  • 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.



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.

BlackBerry KEYone is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Blackberry ever. Best everyday phone I have had the phone a while now, it is the best everyday phone you can get. It is great for work email etc, Twitter Facebook and Microsoft Office including Outlook can be down loaded for free from google play store. Keyboard is great and easy to type quickly. Screen is fantastic with pin sharp video delivery. Screen issues have been sorted in the 100.2 version (Silver) which CW sell. It is built like a tank. Sound quality is one of the best, including bluetooth if you like listening to music. Screen is not odd as others have said it the same size as an Iphone 7 and most apps like Netflix will scale to fill the screen. Device is also great for web surfing as you can use the keyboard to scale and zoom the page. Most outstanding feature of this phone is the battery life, it is amazing. If you travel a lot as I do, this phone is your ultimate travel companion. On other phones watching Netflix etc while waiting for planes etc hammers the battery, this phone handles it. The battery easily lasts 24 hrs whatever you throw at it. I have upgraded from an iphone 6, which I like, but the battery life during heavy use while travelling is poor. I found that I needed to charge it a couple of times a day. This phone lasts a day and half to two days easily between charges. It will take a 200gb sd card too so you can take all your films and music with you. The bundleed headphones are excellent sound quality is really good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the phone but the screen has popped out! I've now had the KEYone for a few months after switching from iPhone and absolutely love it. Really enjoying the physical keyboard and didn't realise how much I'd missed the hub too. Unfortunately I picked the phone up earlier today and the screen simply fell out (albeit still connected by a ribbon and still working). There doesn't appear to be any glue/clips that were holding it in and it's never been dropped. Having searched the issue on the internet, it appears to be a common problem with some of the earlier issues and I believe Blackberry are aware of it; however this is the only reason I haven't given the phone 5 stars - as I now have the pain of getting it sent off for repair/replacement and all the palaver or backing up all my data, sorting out a replacement in the meantime and the wait (which I;m advised could be up to 28 days)! Providing they rectify the problem with future models, I would whole-heartedly recommend the phone. We'll see how the repair/replacement process goes!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ho hum... I've had this a couple of months and it will be going back to CPW in the next few days when I can next get into my local store as the telephone microphone is either rubbish or broken (and has been since I bought it). People have frequently and repeatedly complained about the call quality of calls recieved from the device. As it's primarily a work tool, I'm not really too bothered about the other functionality if it doesn't perform one of its key functions well. It has also shown a tendency to get a bit too "toastie" when mains charging or being made to work hard. The keyboard on the Keyone also doesn't feel as positive as that on the Classic or previous BBs I have had. On the plus side, it does have great battery life and the camera is a massive improvement on previous BB cameras. The finger print sensor is also a great security feature. To be fair, all my previous BBs have been excellent and this one might just be a dodgy one off the production line. Hopefully its replacement will revive my faith in BB. The camera and battery life are good but if it's no good as a phone they are a bit irrelevant.
