Engadget Review

The third time really is the charm. The earlier Android phones BlackBerry made with partner TCL felt generic, but the KEYone is an impressive device that channels the style and functionality of classic models. Even better, the KEYone is a respectable performer with solid battery life. Throw in an excellent camera plus a satisfying keyboard and you’ve got the best Android-powered BlackBerry out there. Just know it’s not perfect: some shortcomings in software are just puzzling, and the market for a phone with a physical keyboard in 2017 is very limited. Ultimately, the KEYone is a great choice for BlackBerry fans and keyboard nuts, but just about everyone else can look elsewhere.
