Phones with keyboards

Best mobile phones with physical keyboards

As great as touch screens are, there are lots of us who still love a physical keyboard. There’s something so satisfying about pressing actual buttons rather than tapping virtual ones. Saying that, smartphones with keyboards are hard to come by these days - that’s why we’re here to help. 

Take a look at the best mobile phones with physical keyboards you can get in 2022. 

BlackBerry

Of course, we have to kickstart the list with one of the most popular keyboard brands of the early 21st century - BlackBerry! Whilst other companies were trending towards touchscreen, BlackBerry remained loyal to the QWERTY keypad. Thankfully, this still holds true for most of their handsets today. 

With the following models, they’ve kept the keyboard whilst modernising the smartphone part. Expect colourful screens, long-lasting batteries, and handy storage capacities. Check them out below if you’re interested in this brand.
