    So it's easier for me to do my review in dot points for everyone and happy to answer questions (if any)

    I purchased this phone from Clove UK and I live in Australia
    Black - BBF100-1 - Vodafone Network

    - Battery Life is excellent
    - Camera is great, takes photos of documents and presentations on projectors fine - I have had no issues whatsoever. Close up photos are fine as well.
    - Call quality is excellent, via handheld, loud speaker and through my car
    - Bluetooth works fine
    - Keyboard is excellent, got used to it quite quickly (used blackberry in the past several times)
    - Spacebar is "clicky" but it becomes the norm quite quickly and settles in - No wobble
    - Phone is light and easy to use and not heavy handed when typing for a long time

    Few issues I have;

    - Sometimes my notification sounds don't sound for text messages, whatsapp messages, FB messenger - A reboot fixes this
    - We should be receiving the google security patches monthly - The last one is from May (not good enough from a company that advertises "security")
    - My 4G LTE calls were cutting out at the 14min55sec mark consistently, however this was rectified via Troubleshooting with Vodafone. As the phone is not "white listed" on the network for Voice over LTE and Voice over Wifi - Turning of IMS settings rectified this issue

    I love this phone, its great and recommended it to users that don't live off social media, selfies etc. This phone is made for business, corporate, executive users

    Right assessment. I agree too it is better suited for me.
    I have iPhone x prefer using key2.
    X display is better plus camera.
    key2 on top in other area.

    cheers

    Selling the X would give you enough money for another KEY2 and a bunch of leftover money lol

    for me the typing on keyboard is precise. no more typos.
    to begin with I am not a fast typing person.
    the prediction rows help too.

    I will keep both for now.
    My key2 build quality is perfect.
    I was concerned reading the forum.

    I have to play with the camera more.

    I'm only a little concerned with the spacebar, thats why I'd like to get a newer batch model (mid July or later)

    Exactly. I found both the Apple kb and any second party kb was slow and inaccurate. It was tolerable with Swype (now defunct), but everything else for a kb sucked. I save a lot of time now not having to review/correct the autocorrect.

    Other things I found better: wifi - faster to connect, faster overall, better retention (greater range) of wifi. I didn't find much lag with Key2 compared to the X, and generally it's as fast with apps. Even with the smaller screen, I'm glad to NOT have that stupid notch.

    About the only plus on the X was sound quality from the speakers. That said, I would say the Key2 has a slight edge in phone call quality as far as I can tell.
