    Really what is needed is not a phone with a keyboard stuck to the bottom but a phone with a keyboard that slides down in landscape like many of the old androids. This would give you a hardware keyboard that is massive by phone standards, the ability to efficiently type into an app in landscape, possibly even being able to read an article on one half of the screen at the same time and the ability to use it in portrait with a full screen display thanks to the keyboard just sliding away. The main problem would be thickness which is the least important aspect for modern phones as even if it is doubled or even trebled the device will be easier to fit in your pocket and it will probably be as thick or thinner than the original iPhone due to phone thickness decreasing so dramatically.

    I've always loved Blackberry, I have a Samsung Galaxy edge right now and I'm looking to upgrade.. I LOVE the keyboards on blackberry's and always have. I miss these keyboards! Anyway, I don't use my phone for business or anything like that, I use Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram and so on.. I'm wondering if anyone would recommend the KeyOne or Keytwo!! Personally these look the same to me besides the camera which is important to me. Any advice or info would be great :) Thanks everyone!!

    I disagree with Linus. I type pages of communications a day on my KEY2. I love this phone more than any other phone I've ever owned. Its super fast, doesn't lag, and I don't get fatigued typing. I had a touchscreen phone once...couldnt stand it. QWERTY till I die. WAY too many Samsungs or IPhone on the market that are NOT better. Buy the Key2.

  • Get me 100 subs and I will reveal something

    It's interesting to me that all these companies that arent Apple, LG, Samsung or Google, are making new phones. I still have an Apple, but I’ve recently bought an ROG, Honor view, and picked up a Sony phone on sale, and a Razer phone, because I just love test it them out (and had a bonus at work). I’m probably going to give the Sony phone to my brother, because his son needs a phone, but I lot the Honor View phone and will probably switch from apple.

    My blackberry PRIV is a glorious phone. It's a full, touchscreen smartphone, until I suddenly BAM SLIDE DOWN A KEYBOARD and I can type whatever I want, because boy my gigantic fingers cannot work on touch keyboards.
    I mean, Linus, blackberries are indeed communication devices. if I wanna watch videos, I'm gonna watch them on my laptop, my bigger laptop, my even bigger laptop, perhaps my desktop or my other two desktops, not my tiny little smartphone... Mainly, my phone is used for discord, looking up things, and a puzzle game or two, I wouldn't have any use for an iphone and you of course don't have use for a blackberry! So of course you don't like it... :(

    I bought a flip phone with a T9 because I missed buttons, I can type miles faster when autocorrect isn't busy ducking me. Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 is actually a decent phone, but there's somethings that are downright stupid about it, you should review it for the hell of it if you haven't already. That said, if I can get my emails to work on it I'm going to switch back to a Nokia E71 because I spend way too much time online.

    If Black berry makes the key 3 they should make it a have more modern feel and specs.Then should make the key 3 is a phablet sized device. That way the can make the keyboard more functional. Secondly make it an attachment so it can be removed at will. Include it with the phone.give it a side usb type C port. Lastly make it to when the keyboard attaches you get a headphone jack and the ability to charge the device at the same time.

    Hey Linus I bought that view 71 case in black , sexy as ever , was so excited wheeling that thing through microcenter and I was meticulous putting it into the car , I seat belted it in for the ride home ..I get to house and carried it in like a new baby , sat it down and started to slowly unbox it , and the flipping door panel had a crack right down the middle . Took it back to be told it was the only one in stock and not sure when I'd be able to get a replacement...

    The only "recent" mobile" that was even better to "use" then the Key2 was the BB Passport,
    now if BB released a BB Passport 2 with android I switch devices in a hart beat...
    this is the best current "useable" mobile device on the current market.. The rest like the iPhone, P20 Pro, One plus ect are just toys.. nothing more then a toy

    LOL The only benefit that you listed that I didn't disable in my Key2 LE was the battery consumption. The BlackBerry Key2 LE can't handle BlackBerry's bloatware. Losing the extra 2Gb of memory shows. I replaced everything right down to the launcher to get a nice phone to work with.

    Linus' aint wrong about the keyboard still not being there.
    I think, in the end, Blackberry needs the phone to be huge. Tall, thiccc and long. Just go for it.
    Make baller speakers, huge keyboard, beautiful and huge screen. Just go for it phablet style.

    I have both the BB Priv, and the Key2. I like the BB phones due to their physical keyboards. The BB phones look different from the sea of slate style phones that are currently on the market. Furthermore I find that typing is far easier on the BB keyboards. Having said that, I realize that BB is not for everyone and I respect, and thank you, for your review- well done.

    its all about comfort, and finding it hard to adapt to something new. I have been a BB user for 7 years, and i fell in love with the physical keyboard. I find it difficult to use full touch phones, just as u r finding it hard to learn the keyboard. the inaccuracy in typing and too much focus on the screen while typing on the screen keyboard, is just a discomfort for most BB users. I use the Keyone, and thats the best device i have bought in 2018. I hope they will never stop making devices with physical keyboards.
