Love the idea of a qwerty and a touchscreen, absolutely hate the snapdragon 625. If blackberry released this with a better chipset, I would buy.
Simply love this phone I have had it 2 days battery is simply stellar 12 hours ost ..speaker is loud.. I modded loudness and bass over Bluetooth now works better than any phone I've ever had.
I play games via ppsspp and playstation emulation plays great.
Everything is great no gripes at all ..this is a keeper..
This phone is so different to what's out there well done TCL bravo I look forward to the KEYtwo
Has a full qwery keyboard and still uses android's cancerous onscreen home keys. What's the point of that?

Essentially you will be getting Android security updates for the life of the product, at least one Android OS update. Most OEMs just throw out handsets and that's the end of it. Given it's ideal for those people who communicate mostly on their phone - it doesn't require 820 or qHD screens meaning better battery life. In just these two elements alone there is value in the hardware.
Does anyone know if my BB Keyone has the WiFi Calling like the Priv and Dtek50? Using it on EE in the UK. I can't seem to locate the setting. I would have thought a new model would at least offer it.

Let check the spec between keyone & priv.......
Keyone- OS7.1, CPU-2.0 GHz(SD625), Battery:3505 mAh, Camera : 12MP??, IPS LCD 4.5 inches pricing USD 963 (refer to AMAZON)
Priv- OS6.0.1(7.1OTA is coming abt. Sept.), CPU-1.8 GHz(SD808), Battery:3410 mAh, Camera : 18MP, AMOLED LCD 5.4 inches pricing USD 279.72 (refer to AMAZON)
............That stimulated me to buy a Priv but a Keyone
Hotcakes17, 13 May 2017q10 keypad is far better, in fact I give the Bold 9790 the best keypad of all BB's Great job done.

Blackberry has quietly improved in every department. You are probably driving a car with their software in it. Today NBA announced they have been spying on Apple, and Android phones. Now do you miss the BB10?

I do want the Keyone I love proper keys but if BB would have priced it more towards the midrange for 2 reasons;
1) it has mainly midrange spec,
2) BB really need this to sell and gain some traction outside Enterprise,BB fanatics.
Had the Priv second hand and it ached my hands it was too wide for my hands holding for medium amount of time but had no real problems, keyboard bit tiny tho. Full marks to BB for at least persevering in keyboarded phones no-one else is just boring old slabs with no design.

Keypad is Tiny, Size should have been at least 5". Price and Resale are opposing words, no resale for BB. If Gpu Cpu should have been latest, price could be justified. Not Alone BB marking would Sell. Sub contractors from BB would have to Sacrifice Margins to Revive Trust and Confidence. Again last straw in BB History!
