Our BlackBerry KEY2 LE Review

The Key2 LE isn’t likely to win any new fans over to the niche Blackberry brand, but its target audience will find the slick business design, snappy performance and brilliant security features impossible to resist.

Blackberry Key2 LE: Display

The majority of the available space on the front of the Key2 LE is taken up by that iconic keyboard which leaves it with a very small 4.5-inch display. Combine that with the 3:2 aspect ratio, which sees chunky black bars appear around videos in landscape mode, and how awkward it feels to hold the Key2 LE on its side, and you get a device that’s not for those who enjoy streaming and gaming. 

That being said, the actual picture quality of the display is very good. A 1080p HD resolution ensures that everything looks pleasingly sharp, contrast levels are great and while the LCD panel isn’t quite as dazzling as an OLED one, colours still appear fairly punchy.

Blackberry Key2 LE: Camera

Nobody is buying a Blackberry solely for its camera but in well-lit conditions the Key2 LE’s rear 13MP and 5MP dual lens setup is capable of capturing some solid shots that contain a fair amount of detail and bright, well-balanced colours.

The camera app is very responsive and nicely straightforward to use, featuring just a standard few modes like portrait, panorama, crisp HDR and slow-mo. Images taken at night unfortunately tend to contain a bit more noise but it’s nothing that’ll seriously ruin the quality of your photos and impressively, the Key2 LE is capable of shooting 4K video at 30fps. 

Blackberry Key2 LE: Design 

The Blackberry Key2 LE is made entirely of polycarbonate plastic instead of metal, but you’d be really hard pressed to tell the difference, with a light, smooth shine and sleek combination of rounded and smooth edges. A sheet of texturised rubber covers the back which lends it pleasantly grippy feel and a 3.5mm headphone jack sits on top.

A physical smartphone keyboard isn’t for everyone, but fans will find this one a joy to use due to its robust nature and smooth matte finish that allows your fingers to glide effortlessly over the keys. The Convenience key really lives up to its name by allowing you to instantly launch the app you’ve mapped to it but it’s a little annoying there’s no capacitive trackpad or gesture function.

Blackberry Key2 LE: Performance 

A mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset and 4GB of RAM is more than enough to keep the Key2 LE running smoothly. Business users will find it incredibly reliable and capable of carrying out a multitude of tasks like sending emails, switching between apps and creating documents quickly and efficiently. 

Battery life is excellent too and the Key2 LE should easily last you all day even with steady use. If you do find yourself needing a top-up, switching on Boost Mode will equip you with a very large amount of juice in a short space of time. 

Blackberry Key2 LE: Features

The Key2 LE runs the previous version of Google’s slick Android OS, the excellent Oreo 8.1, with a Blackberry overlay. There’s your standard selection of stock apps, the love-it-or-hate-it Blackberry Hub which collects all of your notifications together in one place a and fantastic range of premium security features. 

Conduct a scan with the advanced DTEK app and it’ll immediately highlight any vulnerabilities then offer helpful recommendations on how you can better protect your device. Locker allows you to store all of your apps, photos and files behind a password or fingerprint while a specialised version of Firefox helps you avoid web tracking and auto-deletes your session as soon as it’s over.  

How much is the Blackberry Key2 LE?

The Blackberry Key2 LE sits squarely in the mid-range smartphone price bracket at around £350 for the 32GB model and £400 for the 64GB model. We still recommend opting for a pay monthly contract however, as there’s just such a wide variety to choose from and you’ll receive all of your calls, texts and data in one convenient package. 

Blackberry Key2 LE: Our Verdict

Blackberry isn’t a smartphone brand that will appeal to the masses but those who make up its specific target audience will find the Key2 LE to be an excellent business smartphone. 

It's got that classy corporate look and the well-designed keyboard feels very pleasant to use even for long periods of time. A speedy performance allows you stay on top of your work and a superb range of security features equips you with that extra layer of protection for peace of mind.
