20. BlackBerry Passport

The BlackBerry Passport may look strange, but a lot of BlackBerry fans seem to love it. It has a really nice physical keyboard, but the key feature is its unique square design.

Price: $470

19. BlackBerry Classic

If you were a BlackBerry fan back in the company’s heyday, you’re going to love the BlackBerry Classic. It looks similar to older BlackBerry models, but features a sharp touchscreen and an excellent physical keyboard.

Price: $284

18. BlackBerry Priv

The BlackBerry Priv is a huge departure for BlackBerry. Instead of running BlackBerry’s own operating system, the Priv runs Android. While it may look like a standard Android phone, the Priv has a slide-out keyboard. This could be a great device for those who want a physical keyboard but still have access to Google’s apps and services that aren’t available on other BlackBerry devices.

Price: $500
