THE BLACKBERRY KEY2 LE NOW ON SALE AT VERIZON



The BlackBerry Key2 LE is a smaller of the Key2, just that its price is lesser and also lacking some of the high-tech features seen on the Key2.
The 4.5-inch screen on the BlackBerry Key LE is radiant with a resolution of 1080 X 1620 pixels on it.


A phone of this screen is not suitable for playing games or watching movies but the good thing is that the BlackBerry Key2 LE is a good buy for those who want a single device for personal use like chatting on social media or surf the web. The phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo and features some security and privacy enhancements that you won't find in other Smartphones.
These Features Includes:
Cloning of Social media apps like Messenger, Instagram, WhatsApp, and WeChat. You can also switch between personal and work accounts.
The BlackBerry Key LE looks much like the key2 as I’ve said earlier; the only difference is that it lacks some cool features present on the key2 like capacitive touch on the keyboard which makes you use the keyboard like a trackpad.

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE KEY2 AND THE KEY2 LE
You should expect a phone priced at $250 lesser that the key2 to miss some key features right?
Here are the Differences between the pair.
Key2 LE (left) and Key2 (right)
The Blackberry Key2 LE runs on Snapdragon 636, which is different from the. Snapdragon 660 present in the standard Key2.  Another difference is that the Key2 LE has only 4GB of RAM, which is lower than the 6GB of RAM present in the standard Key2.
The Key2 LE is powered with a 3,000mAh battery which is lower than the Standard Key2 3,500mAh battery. Although the battery in the Key2 LE is lower than the Standard key2, it still lasted a day on testing.
The keyboard experience on the Key2 LE is just as good, if not better than it is on the more standard key2.
I guess you would be wondering, How could the cheaper version get a better keyboard!?
Well, the keyboard is similar almost in every way. The backlighting, the spacing, and most importantly the fingerprint sensor—I couldn’t sense a difference only for the capacitive touch.
I knew it!
How could the cheaper version get a better keyboard without missing a key feature.
The key2 LE don’t have the capacitive touch feature on the keyboard. This feature makes you use the keyboard like a trackpad.
So what about the screen, is it different?
The BlackBerry KEY2 LE has a 4.45 inch screen which is similar to that of the Key2 only that the LE screen has a higher ppi density (434 ppi) to that of the standard key2 (433 ppi)…Just a slight difference.
