    Thanks for the reply! I'm even more excited for this phone now!
    Back to snapchat, Are the snaps better quality now with this camera/software?
    Is there any improvement in that department?

    Because on my keyone, the quality is so bad I'm forced to upload via the camera roll
    Snapchat quality has definitely improved. There will always be a slight degrade in quality when using the snapchat camera but it is definitely improved over the K1.

    You won't need to upload from the camera roll anymore

    How's the auto brightness on the key2? On keyone, the changes are very drastic and sudden.. Is it subtle on the keytwo?

    How's the vertical scrolling on the keyboard? Is it better than keyone? Keyone seems a bit jerky.
    It's not drastic but you'll notice it definitely. I just walked around my office floor into different lighting settings and it changed and it's noticeable. It's not very slow but it won't blind you.

    It's always going to be a bit jerky because android isn't designed for a PKB but it's improved because of the new processor and ram combination.

    Does it feel quicker than the K1 in terms of scrolling and launching apps?
    Much quicker! Snapchat opens quickly and you can change windows inside snapchat with no lag.

    Having multiple apps open won't cause an app to reload when transitioning between apps on the fly.

    It says I have 2GB free ram and 89 apps installed.

    How is the audio with headphones. they said HD audio, so was wondering if the DAC has improved with the 660
    Finally found my audiophile in-ear monitors. Using them with a physical wire, the sound quality is MUCH better.

    Does the camera provide raw access with a 3rd party camera app (I assume the native camera does not) like Open Camera ? The K1 did not.
    Thanks.

    Unless it has changed on the retail version, same as K1 unfortunately.

    Even though it only supports legacy API 2 camera, are you able to install google camera on your phone?

    Thanks for your replies and thread OP! How is the capacitive keyboard for scrolling? Is it any better than the key1?

    That just means they don't use the Google camera APIs.

    Is there any option for gestures on the fingerprint sensor? The blackberry motion had a gesture to swipe down on it to bring down the notification tray
    I would like to kno this too. Because if so "we", meaning a developer, could add a pointer to a browser :-)

    Yes, the speakers are loads better.
    Yes, the signal is way better.
    Yes, the keyboard is a dream.
    Yes, the camera is awesome.
    Yes, the phone is fast.
    Yes, apps don't reload anymore.

    Proof:
    How do you feel about using YouTube? (With the black bars at too and bottom.. as opposed to showing full screen)

    And maybe you can post an outside picture of a building... if you feel like it

    Depends on the aspect ratio of the source.

    Depends. A 16:9 video will have small bars on the top and bottom, but a 4:3 video will fill more of the screen on a KEYᵒⁿᵉ than a 16:9 device.

    Watching a 16:9 video on the KEYᵒⁿᵉ or KEY² changes the active screen from 4.5" to 4.3".

    I know. But it would be good if I google camera can be installed just like other third party camera on the phone.

    I read the Chinese version of press conference, more information than the NY launch. The algorithm in the camera was so-called ArcSoft.

    Can Blackberry Hub be uninstalled?

    Based on this Android Central article, it seems like a major memory hog:

    No. Just disable it. But part of the point in that article is that the 6GB of RAM on the KEY2 should better handle it.

    I"m not proficient with the Android os. Can I use certain apps w/out linking them to the HUB so they they do not appear at all in the hub?
