Thanks for joining me for my BlackBerry KeyOne Review!

Who said the physical keyboard was a thing of the past. Blackberry KeyOne by BlackBerry Mobile begs to differ. Check our our key ratings on the phone.

I’ve been a huge BlackBerry supporter since I first got me a BlackBerry Curve. Just ask my friends. When my friends or coworkers see me with my iPhone 6s, they all say the same thing: “I’m surprised you gave up your BlackBerry.” The only reason I did so was because BlackBerry decided not continue to update the BlackBerry 10 OS for Blackberry 10 devices. Having had the iPhone 6s for a while, I still have a soft spot in my heart for BlackBerry devices and I started to miss certain features from a BlackBerry device. That’s why I went ahead and got the BlackBerry KeyOne and boy does it feel good to be back “home”. 

So let’s jump right into what we like and do not like about the KeyOne.

Pros

  • Battery life is amazing
  • Physical keyboard is best in the market
  • BlackBerry Security is second to none
  • Durable and built to last
  • Keyboard shortcuts help access apps easily
  • Decent Screen Size and Screen Quality
  • BlackBerry Hub helps organize email and social media accounts

Cons

  • Camera could use software update
  • Could use more RAM
  • Occasional software lagging

Best BlackBerry KeyOne Features

The Battery Life

Battery life should be the last thing I have to worry about with my smartphone device. The KeyOne touts 26+ hours of use. I’ve been using the KeyOne for a day and a half and I still haven’t had to get the charger out yet. I use the KeyOne for emails and some social media channels. The Power Saver mode will let you know which apps are consuming your battery and use can make the needed adjustments to stop apps from running in the background.

The Keyboard

No other phone beats the BlackBerry Physical Keyboard. I often get frustrated with using my iPhone keyboard to churn out text messages and emails. With the BlackBerry physical keyboard I can type efficiently and minimize a number of typing errors. I love the ability to flick words on the screen with the predictive text and I love being able to use the keyboard as a scrolling bar to navigate websites and social media feeds.

Security

I don’t want to have to worry about my data being stolen when using a phone. Seems like this day and age, people don’t really care for security when it comes to a phone. They just want to be able to update a Facebook status or take pictures and upload on Instagram. With the KeyOne I feel more secure because I know that the security software will top notch. With DTEK app installed, it helps to monitor apps. You will also get quick updates for security and when your device boots, the BlackBerry software is protecting you from the start.

What you get in package

One thing I like is when a brand takes pride in their packaging. The BlackBerry KeyOne comes in a nice black box with the BlackBerry Branding. Below we list the items you receive in the packaging when you buy the new BlackBerry KeyOne.

  • BlackBerry earphones
  • Instruction Manual
  • Sim Card Eject Pin
  • USB Type C USB cable
  • Charger Adapter
  • BlackBerry KeyOne Device

Technical details

If you fancy specifications, here are some of the most asked about features when it comes to a smartphone. The battery life is superb and the camera isn’t too bad but I think BlackBerry needs to work on the processing software to enhance the camera quality.

Conclusion

"Ideal smartphone for anyone who is needs a combination of productivity, and some entertainment use!"

This device is definitely for the power user who has productivity in mind. Although the device is capable of some gaming capabilities, don’t expect it to perform like the iPhone or Samsung devices without experiencing some lag. As far as messaging, the KeyOne is solid in performance. With the touch navigation and flicking to type features with the keyboard, you will find that the KeyOne helps you get things done efficiently and with ease. The battery life is the star of the show and you’ll definitely get a day and a half use out of the device without needing to charge. The screen isn’t the most captivating quality, but it still has a decent quality that makes videos look appealing to the eye.  Finally, the device is secure. You can have peace of mind knowing that BlackBerry has your data in mind and wants to secure it. 

If you are looking for a high-powered entertainment phone, the KeyOne is not the phone you need. However, if you are someone who needs to get things done with your business such as emailing clients or coworkers, then you’ll need to grab the KeyOne.

What do I need to start the website process?

If you’re reading  this, this means you either thought about or are ready to get started on developing your website. Right now you maybe wondering: “How do I start the website process?” In order to get started with any website, you will need to decide on three things! The top three things you need to decide on are as follows:

1. Domain

2. Hosting

3. Design Platform

Domain and Hosting

I chose to pair these two together because they go hand in hand. Your domain is in this format–https://www.yourwebsite.com. The .com extension could easily be .biz, .org, .net–it soley depends on what you choose and what your website content will be about.  In a nutshell, your domain is the address and how people will be able to get to your site. They may access it by typing in the domain directly as is or by doing a search engine search via Google, Bing, or Yahoo.

Once you’ve made up in your mind what your domain will be, you will need a place to host the content. Think of this is the home for all of the your content to be stored. You will need a reliable host to ensure that you have the best uptime and that your website will run quickly and smoothly as possible. Some of the key players in the hosting industry include BlueHost, GoDaddy, Host Gator, 1and1, and Arch Hosting. The latter company,Arch ,Hosting may not be as familiar to some of you. I found the company via Android Central Digital Offers. I was able to take advantage of a lifetime hosting package. The only thing I pay yearly is for the three domains that come with the package. My experience with Arch Hosting has been pretty good so far. They have awesome customer service and the CPanel has all of the things you’d get from some of the bigger companies. The thing that really sets it apart from the others is the pricing! As I tell everyone I deal with, be sure to research and find the company that works out for you. 

Choose the Best Design Platform

Choosing a platform to design your website depends on what the content on your website will focus on. For example if you are selling items online, you may consider using Shopify, Big Cartel, Prestashop, and any other eCommerce website service.  For any other type of website that is content driven you can use platforms such as WordPress, Wix, Squarespace, Joomla, and Drupal. I’ll give you my top three choices and I will list my preference.

Although Joomla and Drupal offer powerful content management system tools for powering your website, the three platforms I will focus on are WordPress, Wix, and Squarespace. For each I will list what I think are the advantages and disadvantages of that platform. I’ll be rating each platform based on ease of use, pricing, data exporting, and its template selection.

The Showdown

Final Thoughts

WordPress, in my opinion, is the clear winner because of its ability to allow users to export data and the selection of templates is vast. You’ll need to read plenty of documentation when starting a self-hosted WordPress site. If you’re a person that can normally figure things out on your own, you will be able to tweak certain parameters to ensure that your WordPress site will run efficiently. If you’re a novice, your web host provider should be able to assist you! 

If you don’t want to have to deal with a lot of technicalities then Squarespace and Wix will work just fine for you. Just remember that you’ll have to figure out a way to backup your content in case you want to move to WordPress or any other content management system.  Wix and Squarespace both provide easy drop and drag capabilities to make web designing much easier.

I’d love to hear your preference! Which platform do you currently use? Sound off in the comments below!
