The Key2 LE has an incredibly similar footprint to the standard Key2, though the body is just a tad shorter overall. This leads to a keyboard with 10 percent smaller buttons, but I personally didn’t notice a huge difference. The keys also come much closer to the edge of the body, making it feel like the device is utilizing space better than before.

The screen on this phone is the exact same 1080p IPS panel found on the original BlackBerry Key2, so I’m glad to see TCL isn’t skimping on such a core aspect of the phone. What it has opted to skimp on is the processor, RAM, battery, storage, and camera. This phone is called the “light edition” for a reason.

The BlackBerry Key2 LE feels remarkably similar to the Key2, but the company has definitely made compromises.

Inside, you’ll find a Snapdragon 636 processor. This chip is still pretty new, but that doesn’t mean it’s better. The 636 is clocked a bit lower than the 660 and has a slightly weaker GPU to boot. It’s certainly not a bad processor, but it won’t perform quite as well as the chip found in the Key2. This decision was likely made to save on battery power, which has been reduced to 3,000mAh from the 3,500mAh we saw before.

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
