If you do any heavy business work on your phone or tablet, you know tapping your fingers on a screen can be a bit frustrating. Simply, it’s no replacement for a real keyboard. Thankfully, high-quality portable Bluetooth wireless keyboards are available to help.
Of course, with many companies creating their own models, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Luckily, you won’t have to look much further. We’ve narrowed the search down to the best Android Bluetooth keyboards for any phone or tablet, and many of these options will also work with your mobile, Windows, or Mac devices.
So let’s jump right in and take a look at the best Bluetooth keyboards you can buy right now.
Best Bluetooth Keyboards
Editor’s Note: We will be updating this list as more Bluetooth keyboards are released.
1. Logitech K480 Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard
If you have more than one smartphone or tablet, consider the Logitech K480 Bluetooth Keyboard. This full-size wireless keyboard can connect to virtually any device with Bluetooth wireless hardware inside. In fact, the software included with the keyboard lets you create up to three different device profiles, one for each product you own, and you can quickly toggle between each of them by turning the Easy Switch dial on the left-hand side of the keyboard.
The Logitech K480 is still small enough so you can easily drop it in a messenger bag or backpack for the times when you really, really need to type with something beyond a touchscreen keyboard. The company provides two AAA batteries to power the keyboard, and it claims that it should last up to two years with those batteries in place, so you shouldn’t have to worry about replacing them for a long time.
The Logitech K480 Bluetooth Keyboard’s other big feature is its integrated cradle on top. It can hold a smartphone or a tablet upright while you type. In fact, if they are small enough you can put in both a phone and a tablet in the cradle at the same time. Normally the price for this keyboard is $49.99, although we have seen it discounted down to as low as $29.23.
2. Arteck HB030B Universal Slim Portable Wireless Keyboard
This Artech Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard is also pretty slim and like the Logitech product, can fit inside a messenger bag or backpack. Its hottest feature is that it also has an LED backlight. You can choose between two different light levels and, more importantly, seven different colors (deep blue, soft blue, bright green, soft green, red, purple, and cyan) to make your typing experience a bit more fun.
The Artech Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard uses a rechargeable lithium battery and is supposed to last up to six months with the backlit features turned off. Turning on the backlit LED keys will definitely result in a larger battery drain, so keep that in mind when using it. Amazon is currently selling this Android Bluetooth keyboard for $19.99.
3. Logitech K780 Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard
The Logitech K780 Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard has a few features that set it apart from the K480 Keyboard. The K780 model is larger, and features a dedicated number pad on the right, making it a full-fledged keyboard. The K780 also has a mobile device cradle on top, designed to hold any smartphone or tablet and place them at the best typing angle.
The Logitech K780 Wireless Keyboard still allows owners to save up to three device profiles, which can be quickly accessed via the “Easy Switch” buttons in the top left corner of the keyboard. It also uses two AAA batteries, which should keep the keyboard going for up to two years. It’s now available on Amazon for $79.99. While this is one of the most expensive Android Bluetooth keyboards on the list, it’s easily one of the best as well.
4. Arteck Stainless Steel Universal Portable Bluetooth Keyboard
While you won’t get backlit LED keys with this particular Bluetooth keyboard from Arteck, this model does offer astainless steel material that the company says gives it a “heavy duty feeling.” Like the other Arteck keyboard on this list, this one is also pretty slim (11.1 x 5.3 x 0.16 inches) so you should be able to carry it around in a backpack or messenger bag.
The keyboard has specific keys that switch it for use on Android (Q), Windows (W), and Mac (Q) products. The rechargeable lithium battery is designed to last up to six months on a single charge. You can currently snag this Artech Stainless Steel Keyboard from Amazon for the price of $24.97.
5. iClever Ultra Slim Bluetooth Keyboard
This Android Bluetooth keyboard can fold up to make it more compact when not in use. The iClever Ultra Slim Wireless Keyboard actually has two foldable sections, allowing the left and right sides to fold on top of the center section. This makes it much easier to carry in virtually any bag or purse.
In addition, this Android Bluetooth keyboard supports LED backlight buttons with two levels of lighting and three different colors (red, green, and blue), in case you want to use it at night. If you have both a smartphone and a PC on your desk, the keyboard supports quickly switching between the two devices on the fly. It also has an aluminum alloy body, and two stands keep it steady and balanced when placed on a desk.
With normal use, the keyboard should last over 90 days on a single charge, but if you are working 8 hours a day on this product, it will still last up to 10 days before you need to charge it up again. You can get the iClever Ultra Slim Wireless Keyboard from Amazon for the current price of $39.99.
6. OMOTON Ultra-Slim Bluetooth Keyboard
If you want to get a keyboard for your Android smartphone or tablet that is not only easy to carry around but also won’t cost you a ton of money, then you should definitely look into the Omoton Ultra-Slim Bluetooth Keyboard. While it doesn’t have some of the more advanced features such as backlit Bluetooth keyboards or foldable cases, it is very slim and dirt cheap.
The keyboard’s dimensions are 4.72 x 11.22 x 0.24 inches, which makes it easy to fit inside most anything you need to travel with. It also has a solid battery life, with up to 30 days of continuous use on a single charge. It also has a sleep mode that automatically kicks in after 10 minutes of non-use, which should help the battery last up to six months.
Finally, the price is just about perfect. the Omoton Ultra-Slim Bluetooth Keyboard is currently on sale at Amazon for the low, low price of just $13.99.
7. Jelly Comb Foldable Wireless Keyboard
Another wireless keyboard that can fold up for easy transport, the Jelly Comb also has a trackpad on the right-hand side if you need to move a cursor around for copying and pasting text and more. The keyboard’s battery is supposed to last up to 48 hours for typing on a single charge, which means you should have plenty of use before it needs to be plugged in again. It also has up to 560 hours of standby time and only takes two to three hours to fully recharge.
This keyboard has a thin profile when in use (11.89 x 3.82 x 0.31 inches) and it weighs just 200 grams. All in all the Jelly Comb is an excellent choice for keyboard needs, and it’s available at Amazon for $29.99.
8. Logitech K380 Bluetooth Keyboard
Our final Logitech wireless keyboard is the K380 model, and is perhaps the simplest of the three Bluetooth keyboards on this list. There’a no cradle on top to place your device on, and there’s no dedicated number keys on the side either. This keyboard is made to be small and easy to transport. You can connect up to three devices to the keyboard at once and switch between them with the push of a button. The keyboard also automatically recognizes each device and maps the keys as needed.
Finally, this keyboard has a battery life that should last up to two years, which means you should get plenty of work out of this product. It’s available on Amazon in grey for $29.99 and in blue for $49.99.
9. Microsoft Surface Keyboard
While the Microsoft Surface Keyboard is meant to used mainly with Microsoft’s lineup of Surface tablets and PCs, it’s also a great Bluetooth wireless keyboard as well. It’s a full size keyboard with a dedicated numbers keyboard on the side, and it has a nice looking soft gray finish. The keys have optimized feedback and return force for a smooth typing experience. The Microsoft Surface Keyboard is available on Amazon for $97.99.
10. Anker Ultra-Compact Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard
This Bluetooth keyboard from Anker is designed to be compact and is about a third of the size of normal keyboards, and that makes it great for travel with your Android smartphone or keyboard. It has low profile keys that will help provide a quieter and smoother typing experience. It will last up to 64 hours on its main battery before it needs to be recharged, via the included microUSB cable. It also has a very cool looking finish that resembles aluminum. You can get the keyboard either with white or black keys on Amazon for $25.99.
So those are the Android Bluetooth wireless keyboards we recommend here at Android Authority. Any other great keyboards that we didn’t mention? Let us know about them down in the comments.
