    My friend is looking to buy a new Android phone

    Suggested the keyone. Highlighted the pkb, battery life and security advantages.

    Even though he loves the idea of going back to pkb, he feels the One Plus 5T is better value. It has a decent battery, great specs, dash charging and a better camera. Both phones are priced at £449 in the UK.

    Any suggestions on additional benefits to make my case?

    the only great thing are the buttons on the keyone. If he is ok with touchscreen, he shouldn't buy a keyone.

    Why? If he like the OP5T better, so be it. The KEYone isn't for everyone.

    Resale value of one plus 5T is much better than KEYone. I would also recommend one plus 5T to my family member over KEYone. Keyone is just not for everyone even though I love BlackBerry.

    I think the best solution in your case was to ask your sister to divorce him after a year, max two, of complaints... four years is too much...

    You already mentioned PKB, battery, and the OS, so I'd have to say no.

    Thanks for all replies. I'll mention some of the additional points but won't push him to buy the KeyOne. Let's see what he does.

    Tell him to read this first before buying OnePlus:

    I can't buy a phone from OnePlus until it cares about privacy and security https://www.androidcentral.com/oneplus-buck-stops-here

    The OP5T is going to be getting BB10 style gestures.

    So I think quite a few number of users here are going to be switching.

    We'll then see if they values privacy and security all along afterall.

    I'm personally looking at the OP6. If it has a few particular features I'm interested in, I might just accept our Chinese overlords and jump in.

    OnePlus 5T is way better. The only reason someone should buy a KeyOne is if they feel like they must have a physical keyboard. The K1 internals are garbage compared to the 5T and BlackBerry software can be loaded on any Android.

    My OnePlus 5T takes insecurity to a whole new level. It calls me every 5 minutes, to find out what I'm doing, even though it's in my hand 57 mins of every hour.

    It's just trying to find out what you are doing during those other 3 minutes!

    Better to just let him get the OP5 and then if he has any issues with anything, tell him: "should've got a BlackBerry"
