Nick Kid, 29 Aug 2017For this price I rather get a Nokia 8 ,cheapper and much stronger features But Nokia doesn't have physical keyboard :D
While it isn't a power house, a blackberry always is attractive to me and other previous BB owners. I have missed the physical qwerty since my Bold....grabbed one for about $460, can't wait!
And I thought the Note8 was lacking and had issues with lacking and pricing!
Over $500 for this? With a mid range chip and 4.5 inch 1080p? Just because it's Blackberry?
And for 9.4mm thickness you only get 3,500mah worth of battery???
149.1 x 72.4 x 9.4 mm vs S7 Edge 150.9 x 72.6 x 7.7 mm that gets 3,600mah with a 5.5 inch display and gets a 92hr rating vs 81???? And this has a decently efficient mid range chip and 4.5inch display.... While 81 technically is not bad it's attrocious given all the included details.
With a 4.5 inch 1080p display and 3,500mah battery it is only matching video playback times of devices with 2900-3,500mah batteries and 5-5.5inch 1080p and 1440p devices.
And you can get devices with similar camera, battery, and those larger and higher res displays with flagship chips for the same price.
And people commenting about connection issues? Come one Blackberry? That's your idea of quality, optimization, and value?

Sunil Daga, 26 Aug 2017Overall Priv is betterYou didn't need to state the obvious.
Keyone is the last chance of BB, absolutely phone is passport , totally business phone.
But...... in case of BB wants to get their best rates, they should icrease the whole appl system
very good phone generally.
ruski spy, 21 Aug 2017had the key one on launch day. within one week, the screen was falling out. i got a replacemen... moreI live in Winnipeg and haven't had any problems with the phone. Yeah I like the avalibility of apps on the Keyone...but In my perfect world, I'd like to hang on to my Passport. There will never be a more perfect keypad. Plus I don't understand all this Google shit on the Keyone. The BlackBerry os layout was far easier to find things. That's just my opinion though. I'm sure I will get used to it and work out all my quirks.
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.
