MSP SCORE

Only decent android phone of you want a physical keyboard. Promises inbuilt high security. Battery life is great.

Insanely expensive given its specifications. Phones with similar specification are available for one third the price. Camera is barely average. OS performance not upto the mark.

BlackBerry Keyone Details

Unique Design
BlackBerry is back once again with its all-new Keyone. The BlackBerry Keyone is an Android based smartphone device that has some of the very technologically advanced features in a unique and attractive design package. The BlackBerry Keyone is among the very few Android devices to feature a physical QWERTY keyboard. The device measures 149.1 x 72.4 x 9.4 mm and available only in black colour variant.
4.5-inch Display & Android 7.1 Nougat
The BlackBerry Keyone accommodates a small 4.5-inch IPS LCD, as almost half of the device s physical area is occupied by a QWERTY keyboard and the bezels.

In spite of has having a flagship-grade price, the hardware on the BlackBerry Keyone is of the mid-range category. The Qualcomm s Snapdragon 625 processor, coupled with 4GB of RAM, can handle almost any complex task you throw at it. However, it is not a very powerful processor, but an efficient one. The internal storage is 64GB with a microSD card for further expansion up to 256GB.
