ZTE Axon (2019) vs BlackBerry KEYone (2017)

Analysis:

While the ZTE Axon 10 Pro (2020) makes for a passable Smartphone for its asking price, the BlackBerry KEYone (2017) simply doesn't make the cut and should be avoided by the majority of people. In either case, we suggest that you look into some better alternatives that cost around $380 or $230.

However, if you'd nonetheless like to find out more about the ZTE Axon 10 Pro (2020) and the BlackBerry KEYone (2017), you can continue reading for our summary of what we know about them:

The ZTE Axon 10 Pro (2020) was loved by reviewers at PCmag, a highly trusted source that performs reliable in-depth testing. It did great in its "The Best Chinese Phones" roundup where it was named its "Best for 5G Fans", which, in itself, makes it a product worth considering.

Moving on to the BlackBerry KEYone (2017): it was unable to reach the very top of any roundups from sources that conduct reliable and unbiased testing. Nonetheless, it still managed to impress reviewers from a number of such sites, like Techradar, PhoneArena, Android Authority, PCmag, Tech Advisor, TechSpot, slashgear.com, hardwarezone.com.sg, The Verge, Expert Reviews, and Tom's Guide, enough for them to include them on those lists.

We analyzed all of the review data that we could find on these two Smartphones. First, we examined sources that tested and scored both of these products - PCmag favored the BlackBerry KEYone (2017) over the ZTE Axon 10 Pro (2020), whereas reviewers at Digitaltrends haven't shown a preference for either.

Then we took a look at which sources liked them the most - we found that the ZTE Axon 10 Pro (2020) was best received by Android Central - it gave it a score of 8, whereas the BlackBerry KEYone (2017) got its highest score of 9 from reviewers at Pocket-lint.

Lastly, in order to better compare them to the rest of their competition, we averaged out their review scores. The BlackBerry KEYone (2017) managed to get 7.7 out of 10 - considerably better than the 7.5 review average of Smartphones in general - whereas the ZTE Axon 10 Pro (2020) earned 7.3 points.

It should be said that doing a direct ZTE Axon 10 Pro (2020) vs. BlackBerry KEYone (2017) comparison might not be entirely fair due to the difference in their prices - some sources don't put much weight on value for money and thus tend to give better review scores to more expensive products.
