    I know technically the key2 is better but the LE has some advantages like it is lighter and I have heard some say better balanced, some even said they like the feel of the keyboard better.

    I had the key1 for about a week but hated the force needed to use the keyboard, the LE in comparison requires a light touch how does the keyboard compare on the 2 vs LE.

    I owned 2 KEY2's (sold em) and 2 LE's (sold one) and currently on the other. (I may buy another KEY2 again).

    Here's the thing: I prefer the feel and clickiness of the KEY2....... Except for the spacebar, which is of course better on the LE as its pretty much the KEYone's design.
    The fact that the spacebar clicks about the same as the other keys is a big deal for me, so here I am typing this on the lighter edition of a phone I already had and which worked just fine lol

    LE is so light that I do not feel it in my trousers pocket so I am still checking if it is still there - great thing for thieves showing where is my phone .
    But holding it and writing is perfect, I do not have feeling that is it so long device, I would have problem with K2's weight writing on keyboard with this form factor.

    Sounds like the LE is preferred as far as the keyboard by most. To me the keyboard is the most important part of a BB so even though the 2 has more ram and such I am serious considering an LE.

    Is there anyone who favors the keyboard on the 2 over the LE, is so why?

    I prefer the KEY2. Keys are larger and have a better typing feel to me and I actually like the clicky spacebar. LE is fine too though, just depends on you really.

    Did you like the keys on The keyone? Is the key 2 like the keyone, very hard to press keys. To me the keyone requires too much force to press, did you have that problem or did you like it.

    KEY2 is pretty much the opposite of the KEYone. I liked KEYone at the time, but the KEY2 is far better by comparsion to me. Buttons are larger and don't require as much force. Which in this case, also applies to the LE.

    Bla1ze, Thanks for the reply. Would you say the key2 keyboard is similar in the sense of force required to the LE?

    I am asking all these questions because I want a BB again and a year ago when I tried the KeyOne I hated the keyboard, its keyboard was nothing like all the old BB's I had years ago. I haven't been able to play with a key2 because they are no longer on display in BestBuy but the keyboard on the LE seems like the old BB's. I am torn between the 2 (for only $100 more than the LE I like the better specs but I don't know what the keyboard is like) and the LE (kinda like the lighter feel idea) but most important to me is the best keyboard above all else because I need it for email and tapping on glass SUCKS!

    Yes, that's whay I was trying to convey. The KEY2 and KEY2 LE are the same in their softer force needed compared to KEYone.

    key2 LE has a soft, very soft pkb.

    as my references are the 9900 , Q20 and Passport, the best overall new pkb (tactile feedback) is in the K1.

    Yeah, the KEYone had slightly better click resistance but the LE makes up for it with the matte texture and 10% size increase.

    I had the key2 and hated it. Owned it for a week never felt right. Sharp corners made it very uncomfortable and don't get me started on the atrocious keypad noise. I LOVE my key2 LE. It is more comfortable to hold and it still has a lot of space for the keys. I would never go back to a key2. The LE is also a way better price. I do not miss the capacitive keyboard at all because I only ever used to to delete text on whatsapp.

    Well I just bought a key2 on Amazon, it arrives tomorrow. Hopefully the keyboard is better than the keyone that I hated. If it sucks I will return it for the lower spec LE since I like the way the keyboard feels. Even though the LE isn't as nice in the spec department I will deal with it for that keyboard that reminds of the good old BB's that were made by RIM.

    I typed this from my OnePlus 6T which will be on ebay soon!
