7 Best blackberry phones to buy in 2018

BlackBerry is back in 2018, and it has some great phones on the market. Here are the best BlackBerry phones in 2018 and their price as well as where to buy them. 
In Nigeria, you can get your device at Jumia.ng and Konga.ng, but outside Nigeria, you can get it at amazon.com or your local store at cheaper rate and plans.

BlackBerry on Android

BlackBerry the hardware manufacturer is no more. While some of the phones in our chart are BB10 keyboard phones, a Chinese company called TCL now manufacturers phones using the BlackBerry brand and running Android (Don't worry this phone is original, not fake) the fact is majority of the phones we use now are manufactured in China, even the most expensive phones on the market are from China.

These phones take the top positions in the chart, as they are more suited to the modern smartphone era. Security updates are still excellently frequent, and the KEY one and Key2 even have physical keyboards still.

The DTEK line offers BlackBerry and Android with a touchscreen, while some of the others on the list are still viable purchases in 2018.

Click through for full reviews and to find a good deal on each. And happy BlackBerry picking.

The Key2 has excellent build quality, thoughtful software additions and a keyboard. But in the smartphone market, people now prefer soft touch, that doesn’t make it a viable choice for most people. But if you are the type that like the keyboard you can give it a try.

Typing on a physical keyboard is small and a little bit difficult with a small screen, no matter what any enthusiast says, and the form factor is harder to hold than the smaller BlackBerry. is not that slim and light like others smartphones.

Battery life is above average and it runs much faster than the KeyOne, but the BlackBerry Key2 is very much a phone for a select few people who still must have a keyboard – and no one else.

But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.

If you an iPhone or Samsung, you’ll not want to buy the KEYone and won’t even consider getting it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this article, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally, BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.

For the first time in a while, this is a BlackBerry that can be recommended to the individual consumer. It is also a business device, but the flexibility of Android means it is versatile enough to be molded to the needs of both. It has the Android operating system with robust, easy to use security features and slick design, all for under £500.

It doesn’t have the brand clout of an iPhone or the curved edges of a Samsung Galaxy, but with its admittedly quite straight-faced take on the modern smartphone, BlackBerry has just –turned a corner. This is an excellent smartphone.

4. BlackBerry Motion

The BlackBerry Motion proves a difficult device to rate. It’s a little bigger than others, and there’s not much to tempt a casual smartphone buyer here aside from outstanding battery life. 

BlackBerry isn’t the only best brand out there, but the Motion has a huge battery, a headphone jack and a CPU that will just about cope with what you want it to do besides high-level gaming but there are other phones similar specs for half the price.

5. BlackBerry DTEK50

The BlackBerry DTEK50 is a good phone. Above average, even. But we can’t fully recommend it because of the way BlackBerry is marketing it. The perhaps incorrect status quo is that people don’t want to worry about security; they just want a phone that works. The DTEK50 is a good phone at a good price, but it isn’t different enough to drag BlackBerry back into smartphone relevance.

6. BlackBerry Priv

The BlackBerry Priv is a well-made Android phone with a unique feature set. We commend BlackBerry for turning its hand to being an Android OEM, and the result is a fast smartphone with a great display, hardware keyboard and solid build and design. Battery life could be better, but our main problem is with the price: at this price the Priv needs to be a world beater. And as good as it is, it isn't that. Still, if you want an Android with a hardware keyboard and some BlackBerry features, this is the phone for you. 

7. BlackBerry Passport

The BlackBerry Passport is not for everyone. The Passport is designed to be used as a productivity tool, in the workplace. As such it is powerful and versatile, and for those who want a portable productivity device with a hardware keyboard, it will be a perfect companion. For many others, it may be a hopelessly hobbled entertainment device.
