BlackBerry KEY2 Unique Features

The key USP of the KEY2 is, of course, the 4-row QWERTY physical backlit keyboard with a fingerprint sensor built into the spacebar, just like the KEYone. It bucks the bezel-less display trend and on-screen, features keyboard comprising 35 real keys, offering starved ‘Crackberry’ addicts something tactical to exercise the thumbs against. Durability is another BlackBerry hallmark that returns in the age of delicate, all-glass smartphones. This strengthened aluminum handset with a leather-like soft-touch grip on back is ready for your day, no matter what business you're in.

Pros / Cons

Pros:

1. Improved keyboard.
2. Useful Speed Key.
3. Lots of security features.

Cons:

1. Worst portrait mode camera yet.
2. 3:2 screen aspect ratio is odd.
3. Won't work with all US carriers.
