The Blackberry Key2 LE is an affordable Android 8.1 handset costing 500 (around 41,000) and comes in three finishes including this dashing 80s red inspired by the Charlize Theron movie Atomic Blonde. Wrapped in soft-touch polycarbonate with curved edges, it's substantially lighter than its more angular and powerful sibling - the Key 2. Essentially a ‘lite’ version of the Key2, it features that signature QWERTY keyboard, a 4.5in Full HD display, 4GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of storage, dual 13MP+5MP rear cameras, and a 3,000mAh battery for a claimed 22 hours, so Whatsapp and scroll through Instagram to your heart's content. It supports quick charging and will take you from 0-50% in only 36 minutes when you're on-the-go dashing between meetings. And for those who haven't joined the wireless revolution yet, there's a headphone jack.
