The BlackBerry Key2 is a niche phone but garners adoration from the few people who still want a physical keyboard on a smartphone. If typing on glass isn’t your thing then its 35-key keyboard will be clicky music to your ears.
The new Speed Key also offers a quicker way for the hardware keyboard minded phone user to hop between apps. Programmable key combinations might not appeal to the iPhone generation, but BlackBerry is still there for those that hanker after that level of granular control over their phones.
If you want to keep your BlackBerry Key2 out of harm’s way, a case is what you need. These are the best ones for you to consider.
Official BlackBerry Key2 leather wallet
This smart flip wallet case is an official BlackBerry accessory and will keep your Key2 safe from drops and scratches. When open it has two slots for cash or cards.
Like other Blackberry cases, it locks the phone automatically when you close it and displays notifications on the lock screen with a red dot next to them, recalling the famous red LEDs on old BlackBerrys.
The rubber bumper still gives access to all buttons and ports and is embossed on the back with the BlackBerry logo.
Olixar FlexiShield BlackBerry Key2 Gel Case
For the simplest protection for your Key2 look no further than this case. Clear to let you see your phone shine through but rubbery enough to protect it from small chips and scratches, it’s also less than a tenner.
Official BlackBerry Key2 soft case
For more official case protection there’s this smart snap on case. It’s non-slip silicone for a grippier hold.
You still have access to all ports and the camera and the outside protects the buttons while still allowing for a tactile motion when using them. It’s also NFC friendly so you can still pay for stuff no problem.
Olixar ExoShield Tough Snap-on Blackberry Key2 Case
For better all-round protection if you want a snap on case but no wallet flip cover than this Olixar case is great value.
It has reinforced corner shock absorption to stop damage to the phone when it takes a further drop than you might want. It’s also semi-transparent so you can still see the BlackBerry logo glinting through on the back.
PDair BlackBerry KEY2 Leather Holster Pouch Case
If you have a BlackBerry because you yearn for the days you had your BlackBerry Bold in a hip holster then this is the nostalgic (and practical) case for you.
With a belt loop on the back you can wear your ‘Berry on your hip like the good old days. It’s made of premium leather and will age nicely. The subtle red trim is a nice effect, too.
