Blackberry's new smartphone, the KEYone has entered domestic market this year though it was officially released around the world in February last year. Coming pretty early prior to the iPhone X in September in the global market, this phone really was on its toes to pose challenge to the giant brand from Apple.  The phone comes with a keypad, as has been the convention of Blackberry phones but also boasts a 4.5 inch display which is marginally less if compared with the earlier iPhone the iPhone 7 which had 4.7 inch screen, because KEYone also comes with QWERTY keypad. On the other hand iPhone 7 is around three to four thousand pricier than KEYone. If compare with iPhone X the price differentiates by huge margin.
Nonetheless, these are some minor comparisons that lovers of Apple would certainly like to ignore. But those who are yet to get used to the time-consuming keystrokes on touchscreens should certainly look up for KEYone. This phone also has touchscreen, but to add more to that, manufacturers have powered the keypad to go dynamic. Now the keypad can also be used to swipe up-down, left-right throughout the display, reliving of nothing less than the frustrations of accidentally entering into an unwanted option while swiping down the touchscreen scrolls.
Powered fully with Android 7.1 the phone is feasible on cross-platform transmissions while allowing the users to get the full advantage of the powerful security backup from the Blackberry team at the very same time. When it comes to camera KEYone has 8 megapixel on the front unlike the 7 megapixel of iPhone X. Whether iPhone still has an edge users can decide but certainly in contrast with others it is still ahead at 54 thousand taka. The phone also has 12 megapixel shooter in the back with dual flash like iPhone X. The phone has 2000MHz octa-core processor.
