    Believe me all...this is total head tuner device! wow! Pictures don't do it justice. Last time I had this wow factor was with Passport Limited Red. But this takes it to another level! love it!!

    First improvement right out of the box: the characters on the keys can be seen way better!! Huge improvement!

    Space bar feels good!

    Congrats Rico!!!

    Wow really nice phone and packaging!

    Also like the white background and lighting of your photos.

    I love the red lettering on the outside of the box and the red trim inside.
    Definitely digging the red earbuds too.

    Now, about that spacebar, can you please put it side by side to your silver KEY2 and tell us:

    How's the sound of it?

    How's the clickiness of it?

    Is it as firmly in place as the keys next to it?

    Nice. Is it because your previous one was multilingual, that the characters were small? I don’t see them any different to my Silver one?

    Yes! Please tell us! I've been waiting for someone to tell this before I will order this phone for work.

    I have an SE and I can certainly see the difference between the two keyboards. The lettering and the alts are whiter and more noticeable even in the one blurry picture. I'm impressed.

    Exactly! On my silver KEY2 the characters on the keys even with the brightness full level are not the brightest or easy on the eyes. While on the KEY2 RED it's a huge improvement.

    Here is a side by side pic.

    Just look for example at the 0 key.
    KEY2 silver the 0 is very faint and KEY2 RED you can see it clearly.
    Nice improvement.

    Now with space bar;

    Pressing SILVER is slightly louder than RED.

    Clickiness feels also slightly better on RED.

    I'm pleased.

    Here is a pic of the back.

    For SILVER we can see the silver accents.
    For RED they went all back including the logo. Must say with the all RED the Black accents are just fine.

    Nice! I like what they did with the keyboard. Smart move. Hopefully the responsiveness has also improved.

    It's definitely encouraging they did a bit more than just paint last year's phone red and call it a day. I wonder if they tweaked anything else with the hardware?

    Is looks like they keyboard is slightly more recessed into the frame thereby making the keys more flush.

    Is that the case?

    It's a personal choice and if you want to also draw attention... KEY2. RED EDITION!

    If you like it that's all they matters, I don't like red, but I sure like the Silver. So nice. I'd prefer a white one though

    How is the actuator motor feel? Is it a solid "thud" as on the KeyONE / LE, or kind of springy as on the regular Key2?

    Actuator motor?? You mean vibration motor?

    I found it to be sooo much better on the silver KEY2 compared to the laughable one that was in the KEYone, and the LE's is really nice too.

    I'm really glad there is some improvement with the spacebar... I just may pull the trigger on this thing if it ever gets here in the US
