Unboxing My New Blackberry Keyone by Ivegotsolutions(m): 9:20am On Jul 21, 2017
I got fad-up with Samsung style of coping IPhone. My last Samsung phone was Note 5, I was mad each time the phone signals me of low memory. How on earth did I pay so much money for a phone without memory Slot? At a point, I was about swapping the Note 5 for Tecno Phantom. All Samsung phone look alike so I decided to try something else. I heard of BlackBerry Keyone and I loved everything about the phone.

The Price is 227,000

Am loving this phone!!!

I hope you don't experience that screen lift(more like screen pulling out) issue coz life in Nigeria is too hard to be paying 200k for a device with a screen that lifts just by looking at it. Be careful, no adhesive behind the screen.

Btw this is what an unboxing looks like.

"You got tired of Samsung copying Apple's iPhone". So Apple don't copy Samsung's Galaxy or other phones?

Keyone is a great phone and I hope you bought the new one sent by TCL / BlackBerry cos the previous batches seems to have a problem with the material used.

You surely gonna enjoy the phone. I love the idea of fingerprint on the spacebar and the keyboard is outta this world.

Btw op, you can't just take few pictures and copy paste the specs online then label this thread "unboxing". Do a better job sir

Note 8 or Note FE be fast. I need to retire this S6 Edge

It's not a dead brand and he didn't buy it to sell it tomorrow. He decided to be different and chose not just a top and tested brand but also a quality device.

Perhaps it's you that use a dead brand device.
