DISTINCTIVE PHONE DESIGN:
The blackberry keyone has a beautiful sophisticated design. Ofcourse this is completely subjective,The keyone much more moden and fits the general design footnotes that we see in high end smart phones with curvy edges and 2.5d glass.Tucked into an andoized aluminum frame and soft touch textured back, this new Blackbery smartphone is built to offer the best in durablity while still reemaining easy on the eyes. Featuring a 4.5-inch display (1620×1080 resolution or 434 PPI 3:2 aspect ratio) with corning @ Gorilla @ Glass 4 that offers greater impact and scratch resistance, the KEYone combines a touch display with a physical keyboard to give users more useable space for typing than a typical 5.5-inchall-touch diplay with a physical with Blackbery KEYone, you can forget whatyou knew about keyboards. The device’s Smart Keyboard.
Blackberry did put a good effort in making the keyone more attractive by adding a really impressive rear camera,the same one used in the google pixel and it has a scratch resistant display and it runs the latest Android nougat operating system, it comes with a fingerprint reader,and etc… It fails because it wont be able to catch up with the high end and even the really great mid-range phones coming out 2017. May be more competetive pricing could make this phone stand out, but with the cost of high end model for phone with mid range specs, i kind of agree that it will have hard time to convincing people to buy it.
BlackBerry have a good choice of picking in 2017 smart phone race.
Finally our usual question is price. It price is about $549.
