I have used many BlackBerry phone earlier and was a very satisfied BlackBerry user. Now using this all new Key2 for a moth, the delivery by Amazon was in amazing first but with the performance of this phone I am totally not satisfied. My phone just slipped from my hand on the road may be from maximum 3 feet height and screen got cracked phone started malfunctioning. Changed the entire screen panned with huge cost. After that within 3 days finger print sensor stopped working. Battery backup as they claim 2 days, but actually it's not two days. I am not atall a gamer not using phone for long on Internet for YouTube etc. 24 hrs net on 3 mail account sync facebook and Whatsapp off and on. Average talk time 2 hrs per day. Now it give about 18-20 hrs battery backup. So premium phone so poor built quality not accepted.
Let me fist and foremost advise all that I am a Blackberry User, Supporter from 2008. In-between I have used tons of other devices but always had the soft corner for BB. I was elated when I got my hands on the BB Keys2 3 weeks back, but it has been disappointment since then. I paid nearly USD 730 for 6GB 128 BB Keys2, when my friends thought I am crazy. but it was the love for BB which made me purchase the keys2.
The list of disappointments:
-Call quality when both SIMs are active is questionable
-WhatsApp dual app has a lot of bugs. most of the time one account is running at the background even if you close it force shut it. I have sent screenshots to BB as well.
-Dual sim signal at most time scratchy loosing signal frequently and have to reboot the device
- Frequent occasional lags even with the 6GB ram???
- battery draining fast even when all possible measures are taken. in these dame age even after closing GPS!!!
BB please retire with grace! I know I cannot even sell this now for USD 500!!!
This is my 6th or 7th BlackBerry and I absolutely love it. Feels nice in hand, sleek design as every new BB, powerful enough for me. The keyboard is the best among recent models with Android. The only minor flaw is an average camera which doesn't bother me at all. KEY2 meets all my needs.
Daniel Wither, 20 Dec 2018Own This phone and have had Black Berry Phones all the way back to the Pearl this phone rocks This phone is good depending on what phone you had before. After any flagship from 2017 or 2018, this feels like a huge drawback. The camera in low light is just bad, no other way to put it. The phone's performance when working in excel is just too slow. The Note 9 lags with bigger sheets, not to mention this SD660. This phone is meant for productivity but the only thing it is productive in is typing emails, nothing else. It's just mediocre for a big price.
Less talked about this phone , under rated. Many of the reviews are fake, they write for others to see them for media advertisements. May be they were not paid to talk about blackberry.
This is an excellent phone perfect for everyone except for big screen fans. Best Android without hanging.
Camera is much much better than so called 20 pixel phones who blurr yor pic and show you beautiful (fake) . Key 2 camera colour saturation is excellent. Focus works fantastic. Screen is high resolution. Battery extraordinary runs 2 days smooth. Security topnotch.
Problem with low sales is 1) no demo phones to check 2) no Marketing 3) no commission for sales people. 4) bad reviews.
Friends this is really nice phone perfect for everyone.
Rajesh Sangia, 31 Dec 2018I was using I phone 7 previously , It conked off in 1.5 years, I switched back to BB and am us... moreI have been using a blackberry for ten years now. never felt the need to go to apple or Samsung. I like the hub. if you want to game on your phone then Samsung or something else is better. but for strictly running phone services, email and doing some small excel and word docs. blackberry is just as good as any other device im glad you tried the key 2
I was using I phone 7 previously , It conked off in 1.5 years, I switched back to BB and am using Key 2 since September 2018, It has a good battery life, Key 3 has even better.
The main reason of switching to Blackberry is reducing my carbon footprint as BB phones last long, My previously owned BB's have lasted almost 5 years.
A YouTuber, JerryRigEverything, (you can watch using the link; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFpmTAigi7M) tested this phone and he said that the durability has passed, the screen, the keyboard, etc.
