Best Cases for BlackBerry KEYone

The BlackBerry KEYone is easily the most unique Android phone released in 2017, bringing the physical keyboard back to the mainstream.

If you own a KEYone, you appreciate that unique design, but you'll also want to keep that new phone protected. That's where a case comes in. We've rounded up a number of the best case options for the KEYone, including a few clear case options for those who still want that design to shine through.

But don't just take our word for it — the legend himself CrackBerry Kevin has chimed in on his picks for the best cases for the KEYone over at CrackBerry along with a cool video! Check it out!

BlackBerry Pocket Case

For those who don't like the idea of covering the KEYone's design in a case, BlackBerry offers the elegant pocket sleeve for your phone to keep your phone protected and accessible while you're on the go.

Always a popular option with the BlackBerry crowds, this pocket case features a matte leather finish for a premium look and feel with a window cut out near the top of the screen so you can see the time, date, and your phone notifications at a glance and keep talking the phone is protected. It also features a built-in card slot for storing your ID, credit card or some emergency cash.

BlackBerry Flip Case

Made by TCL Communication, the BlackBerry Flip Case is a precise accessory for your KEYone. The soft TPU cover secures itself via magnets to the back of the rigid shell when open and features a window so you can see the time and date and your notifications.

The power button on the left edge of the phone is covered but still functional through the soft cover material, and the Convenience key and volume controls are left open on the right. It's an elegant and professional case solution that matches the design of the KEYone perfectly.

Incipio DualPro Case

Incipio offers its rugged line of DualPro cases for all the top phones including the KEYone. This case offers two layers of defense against nasty drops and other wear and tear, with a soft TPU inner core and an outer shell made of rigid polycarbonate.

Available in three color options, this opaque case will cover up the unique metal accents around the body of the phone, but it does preserve the overall design of the phone. The lip around the front offers protection for the screen and keyboard while the camera cutout offers ample protection as well. With a soft touch finish, this case will feel nice in your hand while keeping your KEYone protected.

  • I bought the official BB leather sleeve made for the Priv to use with my K1. Perfect fit and no window on it, which I happen to prefer, you may not. The notification light for the K1 is in a different location than the Priv but it is still somewhat noticeable when flashing while in the case.
  • And as an edit to my above post, the official BB Priv sleeve in black was purchased on Amazon Prime for $6.00. Brand-new, not used, not a knockoff. $6.00. Maybe I got a deal because I've seen them for around $10-$12 shipped on Amazon. Still relatively cheap compared to the KEYone sleeve with the big window on it.
  • By far the Flipcase!
  • Second that!
  • I've got the Amzer case for my KEYone. Been loving it so far.
  • Now it's just a matter of trying to find one of these in a store.
  • Enjoy my phones nude
    I did order a Dtek60 holster which should arrive today.
