    Hey guys,
    So I've had my Key2 for a while now and considering changing for a LE as I'm on my 3rd Key2 as I have continually had issues with my Space bar (my first one the Spacebar just stopped working and now my 2nd/current one, the space bar sometimes doesn't register correctly sometimes when pressed) and really dig the Red version of the LE with Dual-Sim. So I have a few questions?
    - Does the LE have the same matte finish on the keys as the Key2?
    - Are the keys the same size?
    - In your opinions, is it more comfortable for extended periods of typing as it's lighter? I sometimes have that issue with Key2 after long use

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes.

    No. They're 10% smaller.

    Don't really notice much difference.

    I'll tell ya...I just got an Atomic LE yesterday and also ordered a silver Key 2 again after using my iPhone X for a while. Going to give the LE and Key 2 another go.

    The Atomic color is super sick in person. Ask away if you have any other questions.

    I noticed a huge difference. It is lighter and easier to type on to be honest because it doesn't have the sharp edges of the key2. IMO its hands down the better device

    Crazy, right? I have an Atomic with me right now next to a silver Key 2 and I'm leaning heavily towards the Atomic LE. Feels more berryish to me after a day of use.

    This makes me excited! I just ordered the Atomic red on best buy for that sweet 349 price and will be headed down to the US next week to pick it up! I love my silver key2 but was itching for something new!

    Done lol...smashing this from my UK Slate LE on T-Mobile.

    So far, I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything in terms of band compatibility.

    Said by someone that hasn't held the Champagne... I snagged Slate and Champagne along with a silver KEY2 and everyone always says the Champagne looks more expensive than the KEY2.

    Actually, I held it at the BBMo event in Paris last month.

    And one doesn’t need to hold it in person to see that the Champagne LE needed Champagne frets...

    All jokes aside lol, I’m shocked how many people rock iPhones over here.
    Not too many Samsung’s too.
    I haven’t seen any other brand of smartphone aside from those two since I got here, and I just might be the only one with a Berry in my zip code lol

    So I've made the jump and got my Key2LE yesterday - first impressions are that it's so much softer than the Key2 and a lot lighter, but not too light that it feels/appears cheap. I've got used to the smaller keyboard a lot quicker than I thought (I love how it maintains the frets from the Key1) and I'm sure now I won't have any issues with the space bar not working/not responding all the time, with the Key2LE now
    Some of the functions I set up with the Speed Key (for example, using Speed Key + Q for a Quick Tweet, Speed Key + E for Evernote, etc) take a second or two longer than they did on my Key2, due to the less RAM it has. Overall happy as I now longer have space-bar phobia!

    The only reason I "downgraded" to the LE from my KEY2 is the spacebar.
    I'm too OCD about that stuff and I need each key to have a satisfying press

    Yeah when I had my Key2's it didn't bother me originally, but when I was in meetings/events I realised it sounded a lot louder than I thought, and over time just became a little annoying. The LE one is perfect
