    Hi guys,
    I know its more of a personal choice but being experienced users I seek your opinion. I am getting blackberry keyone black edition renewed version for 243$ and brand new bronze edition for 358$, does anyone have experience of using renewed phones from amazon.com ? Is it too risky to use renewed phones ?

    Refurbs are hit and miss, so it's hard to give you a definitive answer. You can always return it if you're not satisfied.

    Pretty much. Then it just depends on which color you prefer.

    I never saw a bronze one in real life but if you plan to use a case on it, the only bronze you'll see is on the top bezel

    I bought a black edition brand new from Amazon a little over a month ago. I like the look of it a lot, but if I were you, I would get a new device. as long as the bands on the Bronze work for your area, get the Bronze.

    The only black KEYone that has dual SIM is the "Limited Edition Black" BBB100-7 by Optiemus, which is the Indian variant.
    Problem with that one is the slower updates and the stupid triple tap the power button which calls "112" emergency services.

    I actually sold mine because of that.

    The bronze one will get updates from TCL and does not have that ridiculous "feature".

    Exactly, first it was about the slower updates with Optiemus that made the Bronze the better option, but ever since that "triple tap power button to call emergency" was forced by the Indian government to all Indian devices, it's a huge deal breaker in my opinion, especially since the KEYone side buttons are pretty sensitive.

    Nice!

    I suggest you get the OEM soft shell case if you can find one in your area (or anywhere lol)

    If you wanna show off the Bronze on the sides just get a thin clear case I guess
