    The BlackBerry KEYone, has had an excellent first few months with positive reviews and strong sales.

    Many phones have an LED notification light. This is often used to provide a visual notification when you have unread messages or perhaps if the battery is low. The KEYone follows suit and this notification light is set to utilise several colours and flashing/pulsing options depending on the type of alert.

    If you use the BlackBerry Hub to consolidate your emails, you can also set up custom LED alerts. Within the Hub settings, you can choose Custom Alerts. Several rules can be applied with their own names.

    This lets you differentiate between emails by simply looking at the phone. It’s a great way to determine if an incoming email is urgent or if you can let it wait, just by glancing at the phone.
