The best BlackBerry phones for 2018
1. BlackBerry Key2
- Reviewed on: 05 Jul 2018
- PRICE: £579, $649.99, NGN 223,200
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.

2. BlackBerry KEYone
- Reviewed on: 5 May 2017
- RRP: £499, $549
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
