Have a fried that got the phone 2 months ago and he is extremely happy with it . His previous phone was a BB Passport ( 2 of those actually a black and a alu ).
Now I got one myself and it's absolutely amazing. My prev phones: BB DTEK60,iPhone 7 plus,IPhone 6 just to name the last ones.
Now back to the K1. A week now and I've loaded all my apps and still works great. No signal or screen problems.Battery life is superb (at list compared to the DTEK60).
Still the DTEK might have been a defective unit; fingerprint worked only to unlock and not with 3rd party apps + battery life was terrible. BB was really helpful even if they never sold this phone in my country , they arranged for a local service to pick it up and send it to them .
had the key one on launch day. within one week, the screen was falling out. i got a replacement. noticed that the carrier signal was pretty weak in my house, in some other parts of the city (southern ontario) not rural in the least, kitchener/waterloo signal was NON EXISTANT.
its been 3 weeks now, my 2nd keyones screen fell out. keep in mind, i used a case since i removed the phone from the factory box, and i baby my phones. i have used blackberrys since the beginning, literally, i had a blackberry with a wheel LOVE BLACKBERRYS.
HUB integration on android is severely lacking. all in all, pretty phone, gets slow after the first week, TERRIBLE reception (the worst ive ever experienced) , my BB passport got 4 bars in my house, k1 got 1 (if i was in the right spot, otherwise ZERO). I couldnt keep using the phone, got my replacement device and sold it
Gman90, 19 Aug 2017Im planning to buy a blackberry phone..which one is more better..priv or keyone..any suggestion..tqKEYone is much better than the Priv:
Better battery by quite a mile,
Better performance, Octa core vs Hexa core.
Camera which is sometimes said to be better than the Galaxy S8.
Keyboard is among the best blackberry keyboards ever.
Go for the K1, but the Priv is good if you ain't got much money.

Anonymous, 18 Aug 2017Shame on them!They played with an entire Blackberry lovers community switching to android and ... moreBetter to buy an original android - there are a lot with better prices and specifications than this!
wise, 13 Aug 2017Seriously, who need physical keyboard these days. BB need to move on.those who dont play game on mobile, using mobile for official use only need physical keyboard.
Shame on them!They played with an entire Blackberry lovers community switching to android and selling now rebranded Chinese phones but with astronomical prices because have Blackberry label,as usual, indeed!Who will trust this?What happened with OS10 old only for few years, already dead this too? Expect this to be the future and for their new crap!Never I will spend again money to buy phones from this company!
I bought the Blackberry Keyone for 12 days, the screen pop out and I tried to go back to the shop to refund it but they refused. I contacted Blackberry and they also refused to help me and ask me to send the phone to third party repair shop for repair. The repair takes more than 2 weeks and I still do not have the phone back till this day. Please think twice before buying this phone, not only because it is defective, but the service Blackberry provides is far below expectation. The refusal to refund a defective product is unacceptable.
Screen popping out on pressure has now been rectified reports gsmarena in July August, fresh stocks will arrive by 3rd Qtr end or 4th Qtr early, as its sales is slow, don't risk, wait end of year, to avail fresh and cheaper stock.
This beautiful phone ruined by the top shape design. Why didn't they designed it symetrically with the bottom shape? Is it just me annoyed by the top shape of this phone?
I'd prefer smaller form factor, even if it ment further reducing screen size, say to 4.3". Current climate seems to favour bigger device sizes, but I think this may change in the future a bit. Also some of my friends, including me think that the price, especially in Europe should have been a bit lower.
Even being charter mobile company, no strategy or sales strategy, only price like flagships, rest specs outdated, mini models even have 5" screen, it's 4.5 "is ultra mini. How can they survive, slowly name clientele will fade away.
I am happy with the Keyone Black Variant.. Best mobile #blackberry keyone black.
Using it almost 10 days, Best android mobile in 2017. Loves the keyboard.
Best in class battery backup more than 1 day after heavy usage.

Real usage is what matters always, and I believe keyone has a stellar battery life!
please advise! can is work BB Keyone 4/64gb in other countries. i like to buy 4/64gb Keyone, so it has 2 sim card.
Best Android smart phone ever considering security, nice looking and most important the physical keyboard
I dont know why but i love phisycal keyboard ... it reminds me on that nokia days in school but i preffer something like priv but with better battery... this have 3505mAh on 4.5 inch and endurance rating is still under 90h... its kinda small screen according that s8 have 5.8 inch on 3000 mah and they come at the same level... and its not couse chipset so it seems that os is not optimised at all
Knowingly it will fail, but no hardware or size latest, but price, flagship one, recently example of S8 prices slashed from 900$ to 550$ within a quarter. Learn a lesson
