    BlackBerry KeyOne 4/64 GB
    Color:Black
    Pros:
    KEYone instead has a characteristic casing with quite large frames around a 4.5-inch panel format 3: 2, which works at a resolution of 1620 x 1080 pixels. The structure is based on an aluminum frame, which is extended in the upper part (it is a part of both the front and back panels). This element is to provide higher resistance in the event of falls. KEYone has a protruding camera module with a metal border, and the back is covered with a plastic, which is to prevent the phone from slipping in the palm of your hand. The QWERTY keyboard in BlackBerry KEYone is much more advanced than the extended solution from the Priv model. It is characterized by four rows of buttons, the surface of which responds to touch - the keyboard can work like a touchpad, like the one with BlackBerry Passport. each of the 52 buttons can act as a shortcut to the selected application - by clicking "m" you can go to Google Maps, and "f" can run the Facebook application. A very useful option. Blackberry KEYone as standard works on the new Android 7.1 Nougat, which is enriched with a number of BlackBerry accessories. Available are: BlackBerry Hub, BBM messenger, mentioned functions from the virtual keyboard of a Canadian company or the DTEK application, which is used to optimize the system's operation. The manufacturer ensures that the system is enriched with security prepared by BlackBerry, and every month users can expect updates with security patches. Just like in previous Androids with blackberries on casings, Canadians will be responsible for updates.
    Cons:
    Pretty high price. Small screen.

    Chinese KEYOne Black
    Color:Black
    Pros:
    Very well built phone. Feel as premium.
    Battery life is simply insane (usually 11-13 hours of SOT).
    The capacitive keyboard is sick as it was on former Blackberry passport.
    All the Blackberry's productivity apps from blackberry works very well and are pretty useful.
    For those like me that don't like the big G that much, that phone as a chinese one, is totally Google free. Still one can install all the Big G garbage if he wants. That's pretty easy to do and there are numerous tutos online.
    For those that doesn't want the new KeyTwo, that one is a strong alternative, as if you want a keyboard on your phone those 2 are the only ones to go.
    I was scared to switch to Android from blackberry 10 OS, but that Android 7.1.1 Google free is wonderful.
    and we have the Oreo update coming in the next few weeks.
    You will have each month the security patch update, Blackberry Mobile is doing a good job on that front too.

    So if you want a good keyboard, very secure phone (locked bootloader) with security update each month, that the phone to choose, don't hesitate an instant!

    Personally, I even prefers it over the new K2.

    I can recommend that phone eyes closed!
    Cons:
    No pros for me, very satisfied with my device.

  • So
    Keyone Black
    Color:Black
    Pros:
    Fantastique.

    La commande s\'est bien déroulée, entre 9 et 10 jours.

    Contrairement à l\'annonce, le produit est bien livré avec la boîte et les écouteurs officiels. GearBest a rajouté un adaptateur FR -- merci.

    Le téléphone est parfait pour mon utilisation : sobre, solide, élégant.
    Les touches sont plus souples que sur le Blackberry Passeport.
    Il tient bien en main, avec le doc texturé.

    Je ne connais pas tellement Android. Mais, venant de Blackberry, le Hub est similaire et réintègre Twitter, Facebook, Instagram ou encore Whatsapp

    Par contre, le firmware est bien chinois (BBB 100-4), mais la Rom est parfaitement multilingue (sauf un ou deux widgets que Blackberry n\'a pas traduit). Il faut donc installer le Google Play Store (ou un autre store alternatif) pour télécharger les applications Android. L\'opération prend 10 min. Il y a un tuto sur XDA. Il n\'y a rien de compliquer.
    Cons:
    Translate

    Fantastic.

    The order went well, between 9 and 10 days.

    Unlike the announcement, the product is well delivered with the box and the official headphones. GearBest has added an adapter FR - thank you.

    The phone is perfect for my use: sober, solid, elegant.
    The keys are more flexible than on the Blackberry Passport.
    It holds well in hand, with the textured back.

    I do not know so much Android. But, coming from Blackberry, the Hub is similar and reintegrates Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Whatsapp

    By cons, the firmware is Chinese (BBB 100-4), but the Rom is perfectly multilingual (except one or two widgets that Blackberry has not translated). So you have to install the Google Play Store (or another alternative store) to download Android apps. The operation takes 10 min. There is a tutorial on XDA. There is nothing complicated. It\'s simple.

  • Vitor
    Very cool, but needs some caution
    Color:Black
    Pros:
    This gadget is simply awesome. Beautiful, well built, strong. Almost a smartphone tank, which is really good. I simply can't imagine why someone would put this little one in a case. It is beautiful as it is. The keyboard is the best one out there. A truly BlackBerry lineage member. The battery is just amazing. And the system works without any lags or bugs. All this thing's make this model a very capable device.
    Cons:
    Anybody who wants to buy this gadget needs to know that the version sold in GearBest is the Chinese one. Which means you won't receive Google Services (GMS) installed (it's possible to install by yourself, though) and you will face some weird Chinese apps asking for very weird permissions for sometime. Some apps will show Chinese characters as well, which sometimes annoy us during day-to-day use. Permissions can be denied, though (I really pray for effectiveness of this deny) and this Chinese characters doesn't appears all the time. But if you don't want to have any concerns about these things, better to opt for some Europe or Americas version.

    Great smartphone

    Camera is bad, compared with other devices in it's price range. Doesn't come with Google Services installed, as it's the chinese version. Had to install them by myself.

  • D.D. Scherwijn
    KeyOne black version
    Color:Black
    Pros:
    The phone is well-built and has 64GB on-board storage. Really like the keyboard, and the fingerprint sensor up front.
    Cons:
    The pre-installed operating system is in Chinese, and all Google apps must be manually installed. For some this may be an issue, but the advantage of the price made it worth the extra time lost for me.
