    Upgrade Living up to Expectations

    I never do reviews, but I felt this might help others if they are looking for a great new smartphone at a respectable price. 6 months ago I decided to quit the apple iphone. Tired of the locked down system, poor battery performance, SMS texting issues and constant retyping of email and texts on the touch screen. Switched to the Blackberry Priv with Verizon last fall. Better battery performance, open Android OS, and faster typing on the keyboard. The phone met my expectations for the most part, however, I continue to desire faster processing and still greater battery performance. Ordered the new Blackberry Keyone (CDMA Verizon) unlocked version from BestBuy. Got it last night. I can say today, so far I am extremely pleased. Phone was working by just switching the sim cards. Blackberry content transfer moved my data efficiently. After a full work day of use, the battery performance is at 76% when my Priv would have been below 50%, and my iPhone would have been dead and recharging. I use some mobility apps for my work that drain the battery faster than most. The performance is what I expected. Ran tests on the same network against Samsung 8+ and the outcome was almost the same. Just slightly slower. Given the price difference of $250. I can live with a second or two difference. Office Apps seem to open the as fast on the Blackberry Keyone as they did on the Samsung S8+. All apps are working well with Android Nougat. The keyboard is great, the fingerprint sensor works well, decided to even try the Blackberry hub and so far I like it. At this point, I would recommend the upgrade. If you want a secure business phone with great battery and performance, that you can actually type on, you will appreciate the new Keyone. Another note to add is the fact the phone connected well with my GM car bluetooth as well as android auto. No issues. If something changes in the future I will update my review.

    JUNK

    This cell phone is a piece of junk. I've owned it since August of 2017. This phone is slow and underperforming. It has only brought me frustration and outright anger. In order the maintain substandard performance, is must be factory reset every couple of months or so. But, even then, the constant freezing, "not responding" messages, and quickly diminishing battery capacity made this phone a major headache. The keyboard has uneven backlighting, and after nine months, the spacebar needed to be pressed very hard in order to work. The BlackBerry emblem stickers eventually peeled off. The Gorilla Glass screen became scratched. It was impossible to find a decent case, because I'm pretty sure only about twenty people bought this phone. Before this, I owned an iPhone 6 for three years (and the person that bought that from me is still using it). Before that, I owned an iPhone 4 for five years. Just yesterday, I dropped my BlackBerry and the "military grade" screen cracked. But it still seemed to (kind of) work. So I threw it against the pavement to ensure it was completely dead. And it is. Thank God! I lost all of my vacation photos, and I don't even care - the curse is over!

    Breath taking

    First of all, this phone is truly remarkable. Some have cited that the processor is not strong enough to adequately power this phone, but I disagree. You may not be able to hard core game with perfect frame rates on this phone, but why would you? This phone is for serious people. It's a phone for those who want to get things done--and fast. I find that this phone can easily manage the rigors of multi-tasking and Web browsing. The KeyOne is a beast. The battery life is phenomenal. I wasn't sure just how great it would be, but it has certainly exceeded my expectations. it is definitely an all day battery. The keyboard is obviously a huge plus for me. I am constantly sending emails and text messages and have been so happy with the speed and accuracy of this keyboard. The touch sensitive keys are rather useless in my opinion but I do like the idea here. Bottom line, if you want a phone to game with and watch movies all day long then forget this review. This is the nicest phone I've ever owned and I can't wait to see what BB & TCL have for us in the future! Great job BlackBerry!! 5 STARS!

    Premium Experience

    Posted
    Buddynoel

    50% charge out of the box, never got lower. Fast shipping, good tracking (email notifications) and the UPS guy insisted on handing it to someone (instead of leaving it on the porch). Good job, Verizon, for helping set me up with a SIM card, when my old one was too large. Coming from a six-yr-old Blackberry Z-10, I miss the business-first attitude of BB10, but not the phone. I gave this one a leather flip case and will never look back. I admit I couldn't afford the old price, but when Best Buy dropped it by $100, the Keyone is now the best phone you can get for the buck. Never mind it's as thick as two I-phones, this is a big battery with a powerful phone strapped to it. I got two days use (w GPS, wifi search, video recording and flash photography). I even found the flashlight. The phone looks premium, acts premium and the keyboard stands out as a professional productivity tool like none other. I have no idea why all other phone makers ditched their keyboard designs, because this Keyone will fill a need for those who worry about accuracy, looking smart and standing out as the smartest person in the room.

    Entire Keyboard Stopped Working After 3 Weeks!

    Posted
    DMarie

    Buyer Beware. I purchased the CDMA Verizon Keyone phone from Best Buy at the end of August 2017 and after the tedious process of transferring data and setting up the phone (because the Blackberry Content Transfer is quite subpar compared to Samsung and iPhone- my husband has one of each) I activated the phone on Sept 3rd. On September 22nd the entire keyboard and fingerprint scanner stopped working. (I did not drop it and it did not get wet) Typing on the virtual keyboard takes up 1/2 of the screen and is very uncomfortable because you are typing in the middle of the phone. Of course Best Buy wouldn't take it back because it was more than 14 days so I have to deal with Blackberry as its still under warranty and they have 0 sense of urgency and haven't been able to tell me when I will receive a replacement. I am going to Verizon to purchase the Samsung Galaxy S8+ and keyboard extension. Also as an FYI I have had only Blackberry devices for the last 10 years - 8700, 2 Curves, Bold, Q10, Classic, Priv and then the Keyone so for me to finally throw in the towel should say something. (I have never owned or even used an iPhone or non-Blackberry Powered Android smartphone) I still like the BB Hub and will be downloading it from the Play Store on my new Samsung.

    Best Phone Ever

    This phone is fast. It is great to type on. The screen is beautiful and clear. Android 7 is responsive and friendly. Overall this is the best phone I have owned. I have had all of the OS phones. Just left Windows Phone (had many with the latest the Lumia 950, their flagship). Windows phone was great but lacked app support. Then I tried the iPhone 7 (had iPhone 4 in the past). That was too complicated and had unnecessary logins, confirmation screens and had to sign up for all of their cloud services just to use the phone. Then I went to this Blackberry KeyOne. I had a blackberry in the past and went away because of dwindling app support. But the KeyOne coupled with Android and Google Play is the most excellent combination. I can't say enough great things about this phone. The battery life is superb. Overall it is a great, easy, and fun phone experience. If you are on the fence then give it a try. You won't be disappointed. It looks sharp too!

    Coming Off the Priv, This Was a Fantastic Upgrade

    I've had this phone now for about a month, and, as with any phone, only time will tell how durable and fast it continues to be. But just based on the time that I've owned this device, I feel confident saying that this is one of the best phones that I've ever had the chance to own. Coming off the somewhat disappointing BlackBerry Priv device, this felt like the idea of having a physical keyboard blended with the Android OS was finally realized to its fullest potential. I get fantastic battery life (I don't have to charge it every day, even with moderate use), the keyboard is incredible, and the camera takes some solid photos. Best of all, you get a fast, responsive and sexy smartphone device for a great price. Don't spend thousands of dollars to get the new iPhone — you're gonna have to replace it again in two years or less (just like every phone you buy). I dared to be different by choosing this phone, and I'm so glad that I did.

    Bought this phone primarily because I was stoked to have a physical keyboard again, that wasn't part of some cheap gimmicky case/add-on. Spent a few month researching it and going through reviews. Was super excited when I got it. I'm not a "heavy" phone user. I installed just a few apps none of which were graphic/processor heavy, kept background apps closed, etc. Started noticing the lag when switching between apps or actions within apps. Gave it another month to see if I was just being too critical. Ended up going back to my iPhone. Going to miss the keyboard and Blackberry Hub. If you're still on the fence about this device and are worried about older reviews stating the screen split or peeled away, I did not have that issue whatsoever. Battery life is great. Fingerprint sensor was very quick. The device definitely had a lot of pluses for me. Just not enough to overcome the lag.
