BlackBerry Key2 LE first look: A red BlackBerry?

 

If you like the BlackBerry Key2 but wished it was cheaper and thinner, then you're in luck. The Key2 LE is all these things and boasts red accents.

BlackBerry Key2

 

BlackBerry Key2 review: Is this the ultimate Android phone with a keyboard, or should BlackBerry Mobile stop living in the past?

Keyboard changes make it better than the KeyOne ; Not confined to BlackBerry’s own OS ; Gesture control and shortcuts in the keyboard are great

Too expensive ; Having the physical keyboard is restrictive in most situations ; Awkward to hold ; Camera just ok

For BlackBerry die-hards only.

BlackBerry Key2 LE initial review: Productivity and performance without the price

 

Back in the days before what seemed like an inevitable doom for BlackBerry, it was a company known for producing keyboarded smartphones for people of all

BlackBerry Key2 review: The keyboard phone king

 

The Key2 is the best example yet of modern BlackBerry. The keyboard is massively improved over the KeyOne, the battery will get through a whole day

Keyboard greatly improved over KeyOne ; Battery life is very good ; Solid build quality improvements ; New 'Speed Key' makes multitasking much faster

Quite expensive considering mid-range specs ; Space bar feel is inconsistent with other keys ; Camera could be improved ; It's an undeniably niche phone

BlackBerry Key2 review

 

A king of smartphone productivity, but just misses the mark when it comes to entertainment

Good battery life ; Improved design & better keyboard ; Lots of customisation options

Fairly expensive ; Screen isn’t great for video streamers or gamers ; Cameras are just ok

Phone keyboards aren’t the future, but the Key2 is more interesting and worthwhile than “just another” Android

BlackBerry Key2 review: By default, the best keyboard phone you can buy

 

The BlackBerry Key2 struggles to make a case for a keyboard phone revival, despite some solid improvements

Improved keyboard ; Slimline and attractive design

Small screen ; Middling battery life ; Overpriced

For diehard keyboard warriors and BlackBerry fans, the Key2 will still be a draw – it’s the best keyboard phone, almost by default – but the gap between it and the rest of the smartphones in the industry is just too hard to ignore.

BlackBerry Key2

 

TCL has revived the BlackBerry brand but the Key2 is a phone for purists only. Read our full review to see if you should buy the BlackBerry Key2

Expert review by : Jessica Dolcourt (cnet.co.uk)

The BlackBerry Key2 doubles down on literally everything

 

And it brings back the clever keyboard tricks.

BlackBerry Key2 review: The best physical keyboard no one asked for

 

Despite the improvements, the flaws of BlackBerry's Key range are still front and centre

Built-in security features; Decent dual camera; Easy message management with BlackBerry Hub

Physical keyboard; Small screen; Wildly overpriced

It’s difficult to look beyond the physical keyboard and the cropped screen, both of which are alien in today’s mobile phone market. Despite vast improvements from the KeyOne, BlackBerry is still not relevant in the world of smartphones.
