There aren't that many BlackBerry phones available anymore. When TCL took over the manufacturing of BlackBerry's handsets, it decided to focus on why people bought the phones back in the late 2000s: keyboard, battery life, and BlackBerry Hub integration. While there are only two options we recommend, they're still some of the best that have ever come out for the brand.

Long gone are the days when BlackBerry made dozens of different models and configurations, but the best ideas are still alive and well with the BlackBerry KEY2 and BlackBerry KEY2 LE. Anyone looking for a device that supports all of Android's features but has BlackBerry's style and history inside still has options.

While BlackBerry chugged along long after most of its relevance died out, the company announced that it's no longer making phones. Luckily, the last two models put out are the best Android-powered BlackBerrys and still available. TCL, which picked up the rights to produce BlackBerry phones in 2016, will stop manufacturing them in August 2020, but support will continue until August 31, 2022.
