BlackBerry KeyOne is the latest BlackBerry product developed by China’s TCL hardware maker. BlackBerry KeyOne is the most secure smartphone today, using smart software and especially equipped with QWERTY physics keyboard. Besides, it also owns a high-end design, incorporating stainless metal frame and leather material.
Equipped with a physical keyboard, texting and editing on BlackBerry KeyOne is extremely convenient. Besides, smooth software is also a strong point on the smartphone brand “Blackberry”.
BlackBerry KeyOne is priced at US $ 549 in the US, just slightly better than mid-range smartphones, but has a very high-end design, which usually only appears on smartphone models such as the Apple iPhone 7/Apple iPhone 7 Plus or Samsung Galaxy S8. The design of the BlackBerry KeyOne is a harmonious combination of classic, classic BlackBerry features with lines and modern technology. The QWERTY keyboard and keypad are surrounded by a scratch-resistant silver-coated aluminum chassis, with a black back cover. This color scheme creates the personality and style of this “blackberry” handset.
Another key feature of the BlackBerry KeyOne is the integration of fingerprint sensors on the “space button” of the QWERTY keyboard makes the phone is a bit weird. Fortunately, this sensor works very smoothly with a success rate of approximately 100%.This key can also be integrated with other functions depending on the purpose of the user.
At the bottom of the machine is a monaural mono speaker and USB-C connector. The BlackBerry also equips the BlackBerry KeyOne with a headphone jack at the top of the device, rather than removing it as a trend many other manufacturers are pursuing.
The key feature of the BlackBerry KeyOne is the QWERTY physical keyboard, which makes it completely different from the rest of the market. This keyboard consists of 35 chicklet keys with backlight on each key. When editor or texting on this keyboard, the number of false clicks has dropped dramatically. You can set shortcuts from these 35 hard keys.
From this QWERTY keyboard, you can select suggested words to appear on the touch screen while typing without leaving your hand on the keyboard. In addition, the entire keyboard can act as a trackpad, so users can surf the web without touch on the screen.
BlackBerry KeyOne owns a 3: 2 screen size 4.5 inches in 1620x1080p resolution. This screen is located directly on the QWERTY physical keyboard on the front of the machine. BlackBerry KeyOne owns the size of a phone with a 5.5-inch screen with a width of up to 3 inches.
KeyOne’s BlackBerry touch screen offers bright and vibrant image quality. However, not all applications are compatible with this 3: 2 aspect ratio screen, typically as you can not view full screen videos with the current 16: 9 frame. The Snapchat and Instagram interfaces are not fully displayed on the 16: 9 screen. Fortunately, most applications and interactive games can be compatible with this screen. By running Nougat Android 7.1 OS, the BlackBerry KeyOne has the ability to split the screen to run multiple tasks at once, but this capability is not very good as the BlackBerry KeyOne has sacrificed a portion of the screen area for QWERTY keyboard.
As mentioned above, BlackBerry KeyOne runs on the Android platform Nougat 7.1 with some small customizations of the BlackBerry. In it, the BlackBerry Hub is considered a highlight with the ability to combine message, call and event functions into an item, including email, your social networking accounts. In addition, users can further customize this app further to their individual needs.
The BlackBerry Messenger messaging application as well as the DTEK security application are also highlights of the BlackBerry KeyOne software. In addition, the BlackBerry KeyOne interface is also slightly customized from the original Android interface, highlighting the useful icon of the “recent menu”.

Configuration and performance
At $549, the BlackBerry KeyOne will only have mid-range configuration and performance. The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 64-bit 64-bit processor, Adreno 506 graphics chip, 3GB memory with 32 GB of internal memory. With this configuration, the BlackBerry KeyOne is capable of meeting every day computing needs and can play a lot of games at medium frame rates. If 32 GB is not enough, then you can increase the memory up to 256 GB with microSD card.
On the front, KeyOne’s 8-megapixel camera also has a similar display to the main camera when taking beautiful pictures in normal light conditions. However, this secondary camera failed to capture well in low light conditions and should only capture static objects instead of moving objects.
BlackBerry KeyOne owns a battery with capacity up to 3505 mAh and reach up to 36 hours when tested by us. While many sources say BlackBerry KeyOne’s battery lasted only 26 hours. After watching the test with a 90 minute HD movie, the battery only dropped 11% (from full charge).
With only 36 minutes of charging, the battery can reach 50% and fully charged after 1 hour 52 minutes. This achievement is due to the “Boost Mode” that is able to pause some performance-consuming applications (if you want to charge fast).
BlackBerry KeyOne is a high-end designer phone that comes preeminent with many unique features. In addition, thanks to equipped with a QWERTY physics keyboard has been added to enhance the uniqueness as well as convenience for this phone.
However, being only equipped with a midrange processor, which comes with mono speakers and somewhat a 3: 2 screen, reduces the ability to meet the entertainment needs of this phone. Moreover, it is also only arranged a SIM instead of dual SIM as many other mid-range smartphones.
In short, BlackBerry KeyOne is the right phone for business people or managers (BlackBerry Hub). And if you’re a more entertaining user or selfie, then BlackBerry KeyOne is not the right choice for you.
