    I am always holding the phone and have to think which key is which, Or I mistakenly hit the convenience key (flash light) for the power key or the volume key for the power button. I have heard BlackBerry did research and people disliked the power button on the left side (are you 1 that agrees with the change?) I'm so curious why people didn't like the power button on the left or why BlackBerry didn't put it on top. I honestly don't care where it went but it's definitely 2 close to the 3 other keys thats for sure. FYI the texture to the power button doesn't help (do I have to rub the button to feel it's the power key before I press it?). Besides that daily issue I keep hitting I love the phone.
    the KEY3 needs the power button same spot as the Z10 and passport, on the 🔝. It's a power button that doesn't get used a lot so I say tuck it away.

    Let's just say that us left handers are used to not being considered in any way whatever.

    I am not a left hander ..but i much prefer power button on the left side; it makes more sense and is convenient.

    Separate from the rest of the keys ? Right?

    I prefer the new placement of the power button. I think I have only once turned the phone off by mistake. Even then it was the way I picked it up. With the power button being textured I have not had an issue finding it when I want it. Even in the dark.

    Power button on the top is the best place! Then convenience key becomes a convenience rather than inconvenience!

    As long as it doesn't interfere with the clamps on my car holder.

    I have hit the power button thinking it was the convenience key and when u set the convenience key to flashlight it won't work until the phone is on. So if u hit the wrong key by accident it will leave u hitting all the keys trying to turn back on the screen so u can then turn on ur 🔦 flashlight. Time consuming jus thinking. If the power key was on top u wouldn't even have to think. I don't understand how people don't hit the wrong key when in a hurry

    The power key is textured so for me hitting it by mistake never happens.
