BlackBerry's improved KEYone stands tough, screen survives new durability test

It was at the top of the year during Mobile World Congress that TCL unveiled the mid-range BlackBerry KEYone. While it wouldn't arrive to retail stores until a couple of months later, it would eventually be tested for durability and found to have a fairly weak display that could easily pop off if stress was introduced.

While typically firms don't respond to extreme examples, BlackBerry was actually fairly quick address the issue by pointing out that it would be making improvements to the handset, to prevent such a thing from happening again in the future. In the announcement, the firm stated that it would be utilizing a stronger adhesive so that screen would remain intact even when under severe pressure.

As you can imagine, YouTube channel JerryRigEverything has now tested the latest version of the KEYone and has found that the display is adhered to the body in a much better fashion. In the latest test, the screen doesn't come off when the phone is bent, and it also takes a lot of strength to actually pry it off. If you're interested, you can purchase the BlackBerry KEYone unlocked from Amazon and Best Buy for $549.
