All Hands on Tech – BlackBerry KeyOne review

It’s been a long time since I’ve opted to keep a BlackBerry in my pocket as my full-time, go-to smartphone device. But the BlackBerry KeyOne has earned that top spot in the lineup and I haven’t been tempted to go back to my iPhone since unboxing this QWERTY-keyboard laden beauty.

The KeyOne is a productivity powerhouse, delivering a modern Android OS in a well-built and premium package that is tweaked to get work done. From the keyboard shortcuts that you can customize as much as you like, to the BlackBerry Hub offering a unified messaging inbox, it’s a great experience. The long battery life and inclusion of a fixed keyboard don’t come without sacrifices though. Watch our full review to find out if the new BlackBerry is the device for you.
