Despite running Google’s OS, though, the KeyOne retains plenty of BlackBerry’s own software features. BlackBerry Hub, for instance, brings all of your messaging accounts into one place – and if it works as well here as it did on the Priv, it’ll do a very good job of it too.
And then there’s security – a big focus for BlackBerry these days. The KeyOne includes the DTEK software suite, which gives you all manner of tools for keeping those pesky viruses, hackers and government officials at bay. BlackBerry reckons it’s the most secure Android phone out there, and with features such as a constantly updated security rating for the device and suggestions for how you can make your phone safer, it might well be correct. You’ll even get alerts when an app tries to access features such as your camera, microphone or contacts.
