1.ELEGANT AND SUAVE
The phone is a little taller than its predecessor, but it’s 1mm thinner, and 12 grams lighter. It’s much more comfortable in the grasp and easier to grip, thanks to the flat edges that are also chamfered. The utilitarian design strips away all unnecessary fluff, leaving just the essentials for an elegant look.
2.THE PERFECT KEYBOARD, AND A NEW KEY
The Key2, like the KeyOne, is all about the physical keyboard. If it’s not good, then what’s the point? The company told Digital Trends it spent an enormous amount of time playing around with different designs of the keyboard to make sure it’s perfect, and after more than a week of using it as our primary device, we can happily confirm it is. We can’t think of a better word to describe it.
3.SECURE, USEFUL SOFTWARE
The BlackBerry Key2 runs Android 8.1 Oreo, and BlackBerry said it will get two Android version upgrades. That means it will get though maybe not immediately after it’s launched, and it will get Android Qin 2019. The software is mostly stock Android, but there are a few changes made by BlackBerry and a whole lot of BlackBerry apps.
The Key2 is powered by the processor with 6GB of RAM, and we were able to throw all sorts of tasks at it without much of a problem. You will notice a slight decrease in performance if you’re coming from a flagship phone like the Galaxy S8, S9, iPhone 8 or iPhone X. Apps don’t open as quickly, but moving throughout the operating system still feels fluid.
5.GREAT BATTERY LIFE
The BlackBerry Key2 packs a 3,500mAh battery capacity, which is only 5mAh smaller than the battery on its predecessor. You can say goodbye to battery anxiety with this phone, because you won’t have to charge it every day. The Key2 can easily breeze past one day.
