BlackBerry KeyOne vs Apple iPhone 7 Plus vs Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge vs others: size comparison

7

The BlackBerry KeyOne is now official and it's a rare breed: a phone with a full QWERTY physical keyboard, it stands out in the Android phone crowd. But how does that keyboard right below the main display affect the actual physical size of the device? After all, if it was not for it, the KeyOne is a phone with a 4.5-inch display, a tiny phone by today's standards.

There are two important things here: first, it's the screen aspect ratio, as this is a wider than usual display, so the phone is not as narrow as a regular 16:9 4.5" phone, while the other thing is, of course, the keyboard factor.

Luckily, the keyboard does not make the KeyOne outrageously large. The phone's exact dimensions are 149.3 x 72.5 x 9.4 mm, which makes it about as tall and wide as a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. The BlackBerry KeyOne, however, is much thicker than most modern smartphones at 9.4 mm (0.37 inches). The iPhone 7 Plus in comparison measures just 7.3mm thick, while the Galaxy S7 has a 7.9mm thickness.

The other interesting thing is that the BlackBerry KeyOne is one of the heavier phones around: 180 g (6.35 oz) of weight on it is still less than the 188 g of the iPhone 7 Plus, but the phone is heavier than the 157 g Galaxy S7 Edge. For this and all other details, just check out our neat size comparison visualization, patting the KeyOne against phones big and small, from iPhones to Galaxies and LGs.

  • First BlackBerry KEYone camera samples look rather promising
    26 February First BlackBerry KEYone camera samples look rather promising BlackBerry is back with a vengeance, resurrecting the portrait QWERTY keyboard in the form of a unique Android handset, the Key One, or, as BB puts it, KEYone. The phone is actually designed by TCL, BlackBerry's parent company now, and exudes a premium feel with anodized aluminum frame and soft-touch, groovy rear that is very nice to the touch. We found the key travel of the keyboard to be top notch, too, and the specs are nothing to sniff at. In short, if you have been nostalgic about BlackBerry's keyboards, and can live with a 4.5" display in this day and age, the Key One is a very well-appointed handset that comes with a decent, $500 price tag...
  • The new vs the old: BlackBerry KeyOne vs Priv vs Passport specs comparison
    25 February The new vs the old: BlackBerry KeyOne vs Priv vs Passport specs comparison So, the BlackBerry KeyONE has been announced to the delight of loyal fans. Well, the phone itself is developed and built by TCL, but BlackBerry still provides the software suite, services, and security, along with its name of course. So, it's a new age for BlackBerry phones — first hinted at by the introduction of the Priv, the hardware keyboard-equipped business-class devices no longer run on the dying BlackBerry OS, but come with Android on board.

    25 February Clash of the nostalgia-jerkers: BlackBerry KeyOne vs Nokia 6 specs comparison This year, we saw the return of the Nokia-branded smartphones — designed and made by HMD Global, the Nokia 6 is the first of a new line of Nokia handsets. And, naturally, it has phone enthusiasts' ears perked up. The good-old Nokia certainly left people with fond memories... that was before the company's mobile division was bought by Microsoft and utilized in a way that was less than successful.

    25 February BlackBerry KEYone preview: let's bring the physical keyboard back from the dead! The BlackBerry Mercury has been living a strange life thus far – announced by TCL & BlackBerry back in January, but left unnamed (aside from the unofficial 'Mercury' tag). They'd show it to us, but they wouldn't tell us exactly what we're looking at. Well, today the makers of the phone are finally ready to reveal more about it, including its real name, and THANK GOD it's not DTEK-something. That was the good news. The bad news is it's called BlackBerry KEYone, which doesn't feel like much of a step up from DTEK...
