    Part 2 of 5 in the Key2 teardown since I can only add 12 photos per post. A few quick takeaways:

    1. There's no way in hell the screen will be popping off like the KeyOne.
    2. The BlackBerry logo on the back cover is actually an internal plate. Not glued on berries.
    3. Very hard or close to impossible not to break the frets when trying to take off the front fret plate.
    4. The spacebar is not a part of the main keyboard plate. I was able the pull the keyboard off, which left the spacebar on the backside circuit board of the keyboard.
    5. The spacebar does not contact the board like the other keys do. It's attached on both sides of the spacebar with 1 post in the middle, which explains the wobble.

    I've seen many cellphone teardown from Jerryrigeverything but internal looks cheap lol. IPhone internal looks much better.

    Battery does not inspire confidence, doesn't look like it's RU certified.
