The Blackberry KEYOne was criticized for being a turtle running the Snapdragon 625. The KEY2 doesn’t get a higher-end CPU, but it does have a higher-end mid-range CPU from Qualcomm – the Snapdragon 660. 6GB of RAM keeps the UI running smoothly while base internal storage has doubled to 64GB.
The phone when glanced from a distance seems less curvy, so look for more straight lines and bold corners. Chrome accents are swapped with matte finishes on both the metal accents and the keyboard’s keys are no longer glossy. The grip pattern has been replaced with a nice diamond one for optimal holding comfort.
Even though blackberry may portray an image of an old player they still got the game and have few more tricks up in their sleeves. In this neo teen generation, there is no other mainstream smartphone that offers a compelling physical typing experience and a one with a legacy. Blackberry is targeting for a niche market, mostly people on the business enterprise level. You guys can buy Key2 online in Bahrain from Dukakeen.
We didn’t expect the KEYOne’s camera to perform the way it did in our review. For this reason, we have high hopes that the KEY2’s new dual-camera will deliver even better looking images and improved low-light performance  more on that in the camera section.
