    I saw a deal where a refurbished keyone is 60% cheaper than original, should I buy it?

    If it's AT&T and still receiving patches, I might be tempted.

    Do NOT buy the Indian dual SIM KEYone.


    If you want a KEYone at this point, go only for the Black Edition 64GB BBB100-1 model, but if you need dual SIM, there is the Bronze Edition 64GB BBB100-5.

    The above two variants are the only ones that are really worth the money at this point.

    Not really. They are no longer supported and not worth the money, IMO.

    Thanks all for the advices. I think I'll have to stick to passport in current scenario and keep using my android for android app requirements, until a good deal comes up.

    There only worth the money depending on the actual price. I’d argue that Key2 or Key2 LE could be the better value depending on it’s price and usage footprint.

    Anything KEYone or before could have security risks due to no longer receiving updates

    If you are in the USA, get the Key2 LE from Bestbuy. Discounted at $279.

    The major selling point of a BlackBerry device is being one of the most secure phones in the world.
    This is no longer the case with any Keyone variant.

    That major selling point is that BBAndroid devices are already more secure than competitors from the get-go, since they have the root of trust, and all that other BlackBerry security stuff injected into the OS from BBL.

    So grab an "EOL" KEYone and an EOL generic Android device that runs the same version of Oreo, and by default the KEYone will be more secure.

    At least to my understanding.

    not sure if you meant "discounted" instead of "discontinued", but I guess it would be both lol

    Yes, I didn't bring the KEY2/LE into the equation since he specifically enquired about the KEYone.

    Well, I personally don't recommend grabbing any EOL device, especially the Android phones, which currently represent the majority of active mobile devices.

    This is actually really common architecture. BlackBerry just advertises it.

    And that architecture is not impenetrable itself...
