The best mid-range smartphone, now with 4K video stabilisation

The world loves the OnePlus 5. It gets so many things right: It has a lengthy battery life, speedy performance and -crucially – it’s easy on the wallet, too. But there’s one major feature it was sorely lacking – 4K video stabilisation. It’s time to rejoice though, Electronic Image Stabilisation is here, and it works wonders.

The lack of proper video stabilisation was a big deal breaker for some, and was so detrimental that it rendered 4K recording entirely useless. This new over the air update mind you – OxygenOS 4.5.7 – fixes this. And, as you can see in my test footage against a OnePlus 5 without the update, does a phenomenal job at it, too.

BlackBerry KeyOne review: part productivity, part nostalgia

The KeyOne’s focus on productivity is embodied by its hardware design. Technically, this phone was built by TCL, as BlackBerry itself does not make hardware anymore. And it’s running Google’s Android software instead of BlackBerry’s own operating system. But rest assured, it looks like a BlackBerry through and through, right down to the classic logo embedded in the soft-touch back of the phone. It’s the first model from TCL that truly does look like a BlackBerry and not just another slab-style smartphone.

Obviously, the keyboard is the centerpiece of attention here, and the main reason why anyone would consider purchasing this phone. As far as smartphone keyboards go, rare as they are in 2017, it is very good. The clicky keys are backlit and they have a sloped design. They’re easy to press and easy to run your fingers over. The phone is also comfortably narrow to use in one hand (unlike the oddly wide BlackBerry Passport
