Blackberry KeyONE is one of the smartphones launched this year that has its sales going fine but a recent YouTube video made consumers question the device. The video made publicly by a YouTuber made some users notice that the screen of the device comes off easily.

According to 9 to 5 Google, smartphones were made with a special glue or adhesive to keep its screen intact to the body. However, a durability test done by a YouTube phone tester with the username of JerryRigEverything showed that the Blackberry KeyONE didn’t have anything to keep its screen attached to its body.

JerryRigEverything tested the phone by bending it but it wasn’t expected that the screen of the Blackberry KeyONE would be removed so easily. The fault displayed by the device is considered by some to possibly be one of those smartphones that had the quality control problem. However, multiple videos were uploaded on YouTube that featured the device’s screen to easily come off after a small drop.

Specs-wise, the Blackberry KeyONE sports a 4.5-inch screen with a Full HD resolution. The device is identified to have its 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 825. The killer flagship of Blackberry is said to run the latest Android 7.1 Nougat and is jet packed by 3505mAh of battery juice as reported by Android Community.

Aside from that, the smartphone displays a 12-megapixel rear camera with a Sony IMX378 camera sensor coupled with an 8-megapixel front camera. It is also said to be equipped with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology along with the brand’s very own DTEK. Yet, the feature that has tech enthusiasts up is the handset’s embedded fingerprint sensor in its keyboard as it provides a QWERTY keyboard at the same time.

Nonetheless, the Blackberry KeyONE has the price tag of $549.99, which is said to be cheaper than the previous flagship of the company: the Blackberry Priv. Meanwhile, accessories for the flagship device was mentioned to be available on Amazon, Best Buy and other selected retail stores. Regarding the issue, the manufacturer of the device, TCL Communication hasn’t yet made any comments or response.
