Is it worth buying Blackberry KEYone in 2018? In my opinion, this is not only because it stood up to PLN 2,500. I invite you to read the reasons why you should buy Blackberry KEYone.
Blackberry KEYone is one of the most interesting smartphones that hit the market in 2017 . My interest arouse before the premiere, after which I made the decision that it will become my private smartphone. But when I saw the price that Blackberry KEYone had in Poland at the very beginning after the launch, I sat down with the impression. Currently it has dropped slightly and you can buy it for around PLN 2,500 . I mean big electronics stores, because I've found it even for 1700 zlotys from smaller sellers.
The best smartphone with a physical keyboard
At the beginning I have to admit something. Writing on the screen of a smartphone gives me pleasure. I create part of my entries in this way, although in theory I could use my laptop at the moment. However, when I took the BlackBerry KEYone for the first time, I had no doubts – physical keyboards in smartphones are something that I miss. This is one of the reasons why the components used in it do not really affect the price.
Snapdragon 625 for 3000 zlotys?
True, it sounds like a grim joke? Even though I love Xiaomi smartphones, none of them is a fan, i.e. the so-called "knight Xiaomi". In my posts I often actually recommend their models because of the value for money, but the reason is one more. Many of them are based on Snapdragon 625, which in my private ranking of smartphones takes the honorable first place .It's very efficient (I can hear snorts, but this is the truth – Snapdragon 625 is very efficient, and everything above is cosmic power), and almost all smartphones that operate on this processor can work for a long time battery. That's how it is with Xiaomi, so it is also with Blackberry KEYone. The cell is not huge, because it's just a little over 3500 mAh, but in combination with a relatively small display it allows you to forget about the charger for more than 1 day . It does not change the fact that over PLN 3,000 is a barrier price for such equipment.
Is it worth buying Blackberry KEYone in 2018?
Fortunately, the BlackBerry model stood and now costs about 2,500 zlotys . In my opinion, this is … a good offer. Before you outrage, let me explain. I have already mentioned a few reasons why BlackBerry is better than a flagship for some people. First of all – a physical keyboard. Second, a great battery. Thirdly, Snapdragon 625, which in this device is more than enough. I have several more. The biggest is the so-called feeling . If, like me, you have had over 20 (your own) phones in your life, and at least the second so much has passed on tests, you know when the device sits perfectly in your hand after the first time you take the phone. This is the case with Blackberry KEYone. I do not know if this is a matter of balancing, ideally chosen center of gravity or materials used. It's just very good. What is the competition? Do not even ask … If the physical keyboard is completely uninteresting to you, then at this price (and even lower) you will find Chinese (and not only) flagships like OnePlus 5T, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, Xiaomi Mi6, Huawei P10 and so on. However, if you miss a characteristic click – take them while they are in stores.
