    Just noticing that the Silver's keys have more travel and makes more of a click sound than the black. I'm not referring to the space bar. The black seems to provide less feedback. Any dual owners notice this?

    If you look up Erica Griffin's one week review of both models on YouTube, she comments around the 3 minute point on the difference between the black and silver keyboard spacebars.

    No I meant the keys, not the spacebar.

    Yes I agree with this. Silver is clickier, feels tighter or harder perhaps. Black is softer with less feedback.

    Oh that’s odd. Is that a good thing or bad thing? Many countries only being offered black variant which is terrible

    I think the silver kb is better feeling but the black is better looking imo. I know it sounds petty but the matte black chin doesn't look cheap like on the silver when you see them side by side in person.

    I have a black and silver one laying in front of me, and both have exactly the same keyboard "feel" - even the Space bar has the same clicking sound on the black and silver one- but it is more "tight" on the black one.

    The feel of the keys is great on my black. That said I haven't met a silver in person to compare to.

    Hey is the key2 $key customisable to show notifications? Is that an Oreo thing or a key2 thing? Will the keyone be able to get that with the ores update? Sounds useful. Thanks

    Don't know it this is a Oreo thing, but yes, it is customisable

    Pretty sures thats the "lines" icon pack - its nice, icons are reallly small though so youll need a launcher to resize them.

    Where did you get the black? I'm wondering if it was the first batch of Rogers that had this lesser travel.

    That's good to know. It's probably just the first batch Rogers devices. I've seen about 5 of these which are different from the silver.

    That's funny. I returned the Black one and KEPT the silver for that same reason. The black overall looked so much cheaper and just unimpressive to me.

    Yes it is in the eye of the beholder for sure. The silver paint job on the chin turned me off. The matte black seemed to tie the keyboard in better and doesnt try to make it look like fake aluminum .

    I wonder if the keyboard cover piece was intentionally made of plastic to help with antenna reception

    It's possible or maybe just cheaper to manufacture plastic

    I would hope that's NOT the reason.

    Didn't the PP SE have this keyboard cover piece in plastic also?

    I honestly can't remember now but I think they've always been plastic. Same for the frets
