90% BlackBerry KEY2 Review: Divisive & Delightful (A Heady Mix!)

A really impressive phone, but it won't be to everyone's tastes. It's great for physical keyboard fans and those who want an excellent camera - provided they don't care about low-light shooting.

Why I love the BlackBerry KEY2: A second opinion review
Source: Android Central English EN→zh-CN
The BlackBerry KEY2 is the phone that's a worthy upgrade from your BB10 device. You'll need to re-learn how to use the BlackBerry apps and services you love, and you'll find they are different but still great. Best of all, the hardware here is simply the best phone BlackBerry has ever built. All that's missing is a model built in tandem with Porsche Design.

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 without trying, and the Speed Key makes it easy to get things done quickly. It's also a niche phone as not many will want a physical keyboard phone in this day and age.

Source: Trusted Reviews English EN→zh-CN
There’s no denying it: the Key2 is a niche product that will only appeal to BlackBerry die-hards and those who use their phone purely as a messaging and email device. Some of the software additions are nice, but they’re unlikely to win over those have no desire to switch back to device with a physical keyboard.

The new BlackBerry Key2 is a phone designed entirely for BlackBerry fans. You won't want this if you're thinking of upgrading from a Galaxy S7 and your muscle memory is trained for on-screen keyboards, but for old BlackBerry fans struggling with make-believe keyboards and autocorrect, there's something charming about a physical keyboard. It's a contender for a niche audience that doesn't care about multimedia or fancy new camera tricks like portrait mode.

So should you buy the KEY2? BlackBerry Mobile managed to fix most of the issues, so if you were holding off on a KEYone, you'll probably love this phone. For everyone else it's about figuring out whether you can get to the point where tapping away at a physical keyboard, like pen on paper, brings you enough fulfillment that you forget about all the things you're losing in the process.

Seven reasons the BlackBerry KEY2 is good for business

The BlackBerry KEY2 is one of the last remaining phones with a hardware QWERTY keyboard, but that's not the only reason it is worth considering for the business user.

And then there's the matter of its pricing, which is now a full $100 more than its predecessor's original starting cost. At a whopping $650, it's competing in a tough space – more so when there's the OnePlus 6 selling for less and leveraging the Snapdragon 845. If the price remained the same as its predecessor at $550, the BlackBerry KEY2 would be a strong contender in the mid-range space, but at $100 more, it's a tougher sell because it's encroaching upon flagship-cost territory.

The Key2 is much more than a midrange phone with an innovative physical keyboard. However, at $649, it'’s also too pricey to recommend to anyone but the most ardent BlackBerry devotees.

70% BlackBerry KEY2 Review: Growing keys, shrinking audience
Source: Slashgear English EN→zh-CN
You pay more than you did last year for BlackBerry’s finest, though. At $649.99, unlocked, the KEY2 carries a $100 premium over its predecessor. That also puts it a mere $50 from an unlocked Galaxy S9, and that’s a problem. Unless you really, really want the hardware keyboard, the Samsung bests BlackBerry on screen, camera, performance, and specs. For those devoted to physical QWERTY that may still be worth it; everybody else may well find the market – and their fingers – have moved on.

Of course, you should know what you’re getting yourself into. This won’t be a phone for VR fans. It’s not powered by a blazing-fast processor. Gaming on a 4.5-inch screen doesn’t exactly provide a stellar user experience, nor does watching wide-screen video.

85% BlackBerry KEY2 review: The undisputed keyboard king
Source: Engadget English EN→zh-CN
It might sound like I'm damning the phone with faint praise, but whatever: The BlackBerry KEY2 is the best Android-powered BlackBerry ever made, and it improves on last year's formula in almost every way. That said, the KEY2 remains a questionable option for most smartphone shoppers -- you could get a more-powerful Android phone like the OnePlus 6 for less money, and I suspect most people have moved on from physical keyboards without looking back. That said, for the right people -- people who long for tactile keys and data privacy -- the KEY2 just might be the right device at the right time.

BlackBerry KEY2 Review: An upper mid-range smartphone with a flagship price
Source: Mobile Syrup English EN→zh-CN
BlackBerry’s KEY2 is a fantastic upper mid-range smartphone being sold at a decidedly premium price. It’s a phone with an interesting design, a good screen, impressive battery life, and a serviceable camera, but that nonetheless fails to rival the premium-tier flagship smartphones with which it must compete simply due to price alone.

There will be those who will oversee the deficiencies and pick up this phone because they want a QWERTY keyboard. To those people I say good for you; you’ll enjoy this phone very much like I did. I just can’t recommend a phone that costs $650, because there are just too many devices that undercut it in pricing and features.

BlackBerry Key2 Review: The Keyboard King returns for its crown
Source: Android Guys English EN→zh-CN
The BlackBerry Key2 isn’t going to be the phone for everyone. BlackBerry knows this and it’s not trying to be. It is targetting a small segment of Android users that want a physical keyboard and smart software features to make their jobs easier. I love the laser focus on that goal. If you work in sales, marketing, or other related jobs, this is absolutely the phone for you.

The Key2 is in many ways unsurprising. It takes TCL’s BlackBerry redesign and tweaks it to improve the keyboard, cameras and software. The speed key is a niche addition to an already niche phone but it’s a thoughtful change, and 6GB as standard is notable.

The new BlackBerry Key2 is a phone designed entirely for BlackBerry fans. You won't want this if you're thinking of upgrading from a Galaxy S7, although there's something charming about a physical keyboard still. A slightly underpowered CPU might not be up to all tasks, but it helps keep the price a little lower and seems to combine well with the improvements BlackBerry has brought.
