    That's a big thing for the Blackberry brand. Maybe if they can break back into the US market, we'll see more devices from them on US carriers in the future. I do feel like they're really trying to bring the Blackberry name back, and the KEYone is a great start.

    Yes. It will. Even though the silver is "different" in this day and age of dark grey/black/blue bricks.

    After going back and forth between a few phones like the HTC U11 then the Galaxy S8. I sold them all and bought another BlackBerry KeyOne but this time the Black Edition which has 4GB of RAM instead of 3 GB and 64GB of internal storage instead of 32GB.

    I missed the physical keyboard when after selling my initial BlackBerry KeyOne and kept getting frustrated with making so many mistakes while typing fast on a touch screen keyboard and I missed the 2 day battery life so I bought it again......... love this phone so much!

    Inb4 selling it again and buying another 5 phones :D

    I'm kinda torn between two phones right now. I like what LG V30 has to offer, but on the other hand Keyone has keyboard and BB Hub, two features that I got used to on my Q10... Decisions, decisions...

    well I don't know how hooked you are to the Physical Keyboard like I am but trust me, no matter how much you get used to a virtual keyboard, you will NEVER type with the same precision as you would on a physical one. Then comes the battery life this battery just doesn't wanna every die!! :eek: I've been using the phone non-stop since the morning on whatsapp messenger so like the screen was on all the time, like 3 hours of constant hammering and I'm still at 68%

    If this was my Galaxy S8 it would be at 30% by now

    Then you plug it in to the fast charger and baam, you're at a 100% in no time. Also the standby time of this phone is superb! it stays at 100% for a loooooooooong time

    The camera is also great. One big gripe that I hated with the Galaxy S8 is, if you set the resolution to 1080P/60 FPS, there is a video limit of 10 mins for each video you so you can't shoot a long video. With the KeyOne there is such limit (and yes I have tried on my S8 to switch the storage to my external SD Card which is 128GB but no luck)

    Well my BlackBerry Passport isn't really holding up much longer... so going to wait until it dies or is EOL.
