Top 3 Best Texting Phones 2016

Since texting phones with a full keyboard are getting rare, this list of the best Texting smart or regular phones may also include smartphones with a display larger than 4.5 inches (because they make it easier to use virtual keyboards such as Swype) and some models with wet-finger tracking or water-resistant smartphones, a definite plus when you have to text with moist or wet hands. However, if any good basic phone includes a physical frontal or slide-out keyboard, it will also be listed.

#1. The BlackBerry PRIV

Average Rating:


BlackBerry's first Android-run smartphone merges the popular OS with a BB-esque array of pros and cons, the key elements being a premium 5.4-inch Quad HD (1440p) dual-curved-edge AMOLED display and a SmartSlide (a slide-out technology they had not yet detailed when we wrote this) touch-sensitive 4-row QWERTY keyboard . This 192g smartphone also features an 18-megapixel dual-LED-flash PDAF camera , which is sadly joined by a mediocre 2-megapixel selfie cam -- many other 2015 alternatives sport 5-megapixel sub-cams. That said, its hexa-core CPU + 3GB RAM processing is more than appreciable, especially with a 3410mAh QC2.0 battery under the hood. Topping off the highest-specked BB phone (as of its release) is the DTEK privacy software , which is probably why BB calls it the PRIV. This model has been called BlackBerry's last chance and we feel that, with specs like these... they have a shot at it. (Full pros and cons...)

#2. The BlackBerry Classic Non Camera

Average Rating:


The BB Classic Non Camera's lack of an imaging capacity might be a pro or a con depending on your workplace, but it is obviously a setback in that department. A Full HD screen (instead of HD) would have been more appreciable on this 2015 release, too. (Full pros and cons...)

#3. The BlackBerry Porsche Design Graphite

Average Rating:


Closely following the first P9983, this houses its business-oriented pros and cons with a refined overall physique. This includes its exclusive graphite-metallic colored casing , blackened Corning Gorilla Glass (keyboard frets) , and sapphire glass frame protecting its 8-megapixel rear sensor. It also brings back the encrypted BBM messaging service alongside the BB OS version 10.3.1. Though we promise we are not suckers for that kind of vanity trick, we admit that the Graphite may make you feel special with the Porsche Design PIN ID group - 2AAXXXXX , making you instantly recognizable by the miserable Porsche Design users who settled for only the plain version. (Full pros and cons...)
