    Ads in the Hub? Have been strongly considering the purchase of the key2 I like a lot of what I’m reading but there’s quite a bit I don’t like. Like ads!
    The Hub on the KEY2 doesn't have ads. It's only the Hub+ app on non-BlackBerry phones that would have ads if you don't pay for the subscription.

    There are no ads on any BlackBerry branded phone. If you downloaded Hub on a Samsung phone there are ads.

    Both.

    Frankly, I prefer typing on my phone to typing on my computer keyboard.
    I feel the same way for a good percentage of my emails but there are some emails that I need to have my dual monitors and 10 key for the amount of numbers and specifically pricing I'm sending to my clients.

    Just today I sent a response to a customer that was quite lengthy but full of bullet points and sub bullet points. I definitely could have done it on my KEYᵒⁿᵉ but having the office setup was key.

    So if you wouldn't type them on your KEYone, you obviously wouldn't do it on a slab. Point proven.

    I work two jobs, IT and martial arts classes. For the former I can write scripts and do PowerShell/SSH as if I were on a laptop, for the latter I can write lesson plans, confidently email high value customers (governmental and security), and make social media posts.

    I really miss MIUI, but I can't deny how much frustration the glass has been giving me.

    There's a reason why most tech and machinery still use physical buttons/switches/levers instead of full touch interfaces - because it just works better.

    But when it comes to smartphones, there is an inexplicable hate of physical buttons, namely: The keyboard.

    A phone with a full touchscreen.

    These days, that includes every single phone besides the KEYone, KEY2 and KEY2 LE.
    Actually the phones you quoted are full touchscreens and also have a physical keyboard. And with the phones you quoted you can actually run two different applications in split screen without having to bring up a software keyboard just type on the hardware keyboard in any screen.

    I want to hear from people who prefer to use a KEY2 every day in their business, profession, career, etc.

    I’m particularly interested in why you chose the KEY2, how it empowers you, and some specific ways you use it to get work done.

    What’s your story?
    I do a lot of typing. From communicating with friends, to blogging and writing. The Key 2's keyboard abilities is bar none, from flick typing, the way it predicts and programs not just English words but even my own native tongue and dialect. I don't like touchscreen keyboard because of the tendency of touching the adjacent letters. I love the fingerprint and picture password and the way you could customize all the apps that's running for easier access. The only drawback is the camera could be better however it's workable.

    Bottom line for me is that I spend more than 50% of the time on my phone typing, and find that a 4.5" screen is perfectly acceptable for when I'm not.
    Exactly. Critics go on and on about the screen size of this phone. How big does a screen have to be. Even for watching media on this device it's fine. The key 2 is a phenominal device.

    Yeah I find that interesting. Tablets have never taken over laptops but for some reason touch screen phones are preferred over the PKB. I don't get it. I will never be able to type on glass. Even when I owned the Motion I loved the phone but the typing speed cannot be matched on a PKB. I honestly don't know how people type on glass without making errors I wrote this entire post without looking at the keys once I cannot do that on a touch screen

    in essence blackberry for me has always been my personal computer... it's a communication powerhouse, having the added benefits of modern apps and conveniences is a bonus. I still prefer bb10 for its functionality and smoothness, but there is no denying the benefits of a modern OS

    There are some things I'd still prefer a laptop for instead of any mobile device, but when it comes to simply typing on the go, having a PKB on my phone makes far more sense than having to carry a laptop for that, which may be the case for slab users.

    Absolutely! I am frequently traveling around and I use my Key 2 for doing all things I need.
    I carry a Surface Go too but I use it only for reading big excel or PDF files.
