BlackBerry Key2 LE first look: A red BlackBerry?

 

If you like the BlackBerry Key2 but wished it was cheaper and thinner, then you're in luck. The Key2 LE is all these things and boasts red accents.

BlackBerry Key2

 

BlackBerry Key2 review: Is this the ultimate Android phone with a keyboard, or should BlackBerry Mobile stop living in the past?

Keyboard changes make it better than the KeyOne ; Not confined to BlackBerry’s own OS ; Gesture control and shortcuts in the keyboard are great

Too expensive ; Having the physical keyboard is restrictive in most situations ; Awkward to hold ; Camera just ok

For BlackBerry die-hards only.

BlackBerry KEY2 review: The undisputed keyboard king

 

The BlackBerry KEY2 isn't the first Android-powered BlackBerry, but it is by far the best. Its blend of style, solid performance, a fantastic physical keyboard and a long-lasting battery more than enough to win over one-time BlackBerry devotees and...

Long-lasting battery ; Fantastic physical keyboard ; Multitasking is lightning-fast ; Sleeker physical design

Camera can be hit-or-miss ; Sometimes confusing button placement ; $650 is pricey for a mid-range device

BlackBerry KEY2 review: How the keyboard became my Android power tool

 

While the BlackBerry KEY2 focuses on business users, it's keyboard makes this phone a powerhouse for any Android user.

Tactile keyboard is a treat to use ; Speed Key unlocks new navigation possibilities ; Mediocre hardware performs like a champ

Small screen with large bezels

I may have moved on to another phone, but the KEY2 stays with me in spirit. I find myself missing the keyboard. It’s the only Android phone I’ve used this year that truly had me excited. So whether you are an ex-BlackBerry user wondering if you should...

BlackBerry Key2

 

The Key2 will thrill BlackBerry devotees with a great little keyboard and more privacy control than you'll get on other Android smartphones.

Nice physical keyboard with powerful shortcut key. Focused on security and privacy.

Dim screen. Disappointing cameras.

BlackBerry Key2 has great battery life and great ideas

 

But battery life is fantastic and the Key2 has some stellar tricks.

The BlackBerry Key2 improves on the KeyOne across the board. Outdoor daytime photos are crisp and bright, and portrait mode works well. Keyboard shortcuts that open other apps are fantastic, as is a programmable convenience key. Battery life is excellent.

Despite larger buttons, the Key2's QWERTY keyboard still feels cramped. The Key2 is laggy, and suffers from weak low light photography and capacitive navigation buttons that get in the way.

If you rely on an older BlackBerry phone, the BlackBerry Key2 is a worthy upgrade, but it will frustrate people switching from all-touch phones, despite some winning extras.
