Update, March 1, 2017: We're eagerly anticipating the release of the new BlackBerry KEYone, but while we wait for the April release, here's an update on the best BlackBerry phones you can buy today.

Looking for the best BlackBerry phone to buy? Right now, it's the Priv, which is still the best phone with a physical keyboard.

Best overall

BlackBerry DTEK60

See at Amazon

The DTEK60 was BlackBerry's third device to run on Android, and to date is the best of BlackBerry's Android offering so far.

Running on Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 out of the box, the DTEK60 features a mostly stock Android experience that's accentuated with BlackBerry's added layers of security along with the BlackBerry Intelligent Keyboard which is jam-packed with useful gesture controls. You'll also get the full suite of BlackBerry

Design-wise, the DTEK60 has the traditional touchscreen design might look fairly stereotypical at a glance, but it's packed with some really handy features including the classic BlackBerry notification LED on the front, a programmable convenience key on the side below the volume rocker, and a fingerprint scanner on the back. There's a 8MP fixed focus front-facing camera and a 21MP sensor on the back. Featuring a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor and a 3,000mAh battery, its a quality phone all around. But don't just take my word for it — Bla1ze over at CrackBerry.com wrote up an outstandingly comprehensive review of the DTEK60. Here's a quote:

The DTEK60 is the latest in BlackBerry's line of secure Android smartphones combining best-in-class security and flagship specs but at a lower price tier than most flagship phones. It's a complete package that is great for enterprises and organizations looking to deploy devices but can also be recommended to anyone looking to move into flagship hardware without breaking the bank.

Bottom line: Offering the best experiences from Android and BlackBerry, the DTEK60 is the best BlackBerry you can get...

One more thing: ...But with the BlackBerry KEYone just around the corner, you might want to hold off your decision until April.

Why the BlackBerry DTEK60 is the best

Combining Android flagship hardware with BlackBerry's secure software.

Considering the options currently available from BlackBerry, the DTEK60 stands in a class of its own. While more traditionally a smartphone than other BlackBerry devices, the DTEK60 still includes everything that makes a BlackBerry Android phone great, with a fantastic virtual keyboard and software with emphasized security features.

It's a great option that's only overshadowed by the imminent release of the next exciting phone, the KEYone. Until the official release of the new BlackBerry handset, the DTEK60 is the best you can get today.

Best for less

BlackBerry DTEK50

See at Amazon

The DTEK50 is a solid entry-level phone that provides the security associated with the BlackBerry name without distracting too much from the experience of using an Android device.

The first of BlackBerry's Android devices to be designed and built by an outside company, the DTEK50 includes decent hardware specs for its price point and a serviceable camera. Just keep in mind that this is an entry level device — more than serviceable for all your business-related needs (it's a BlackBerry, after all), but lacking on the specs needed for gaming and other resource-hogging applications.

Bottom line: The DTEK50 is a solid phone with a focus on security that will be appealing to some. And at $299, it's certainly not going to break the bank.

One more thing: The DTEK50 features a customizable Convenience Key, which can be mapped to quick launch an app with a single press and acts as a mute button when you're on call.

Best Keyboard

BlackBerry Priv

See at Amazon

BlackBerry's first phone running on Android was a bold attempt to buck the latest smartphone trends. In a world dominated by slabs of aluminum and glass, BlackBerry went with a slider design to incorporate a physical keyboard and a soft-touch back that's great for maintaining your grip.

Internally, the BlackBerry Priv runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 hexa-core 64-bit processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (microSD expansion available). It's got a massive 3410 mAh battery and supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 as well as Qi and Powermat wireless charging on most models.

Running on Marshmallow, BlackBerry attempted to keep a mostly stock Android experience while certainly adding their own flourishes, including BlackBerry Messenger, BlackBerry Hub, along with the security features that BlackBerry is known for

As BlackBerry's first Android flagship, the Priv was quite expensive when it first released back in November 2015. While it may have lost a bit of luster, at a lowered price point it's a great option for folks who were interested in the past but couldn't justify the full price.

Bottom line: With its physical keyboard and top-notch Blackberry security features, the Priv is a unique and powerful option in the Android marketplace.

One more thing: The Priv may be all about the physical keyboard, but BlackBerry's virtual keyboard is actually one of the best in the business, too.

Conclusion

As it stands today, the DTEK60 is the best BlackBerry phone you can buy... But we expect that to change in April. The DTEK50
