    OK, so I just want to pay a homage to the incredible KEY2 LE. As seen in other topics I had some problems in the beginning, but it is now working like a charm!

    After I dropped my Motion and the the screen was cracked, I reckoned it was time to go back to a PKB. I decided to go for the LE because of the price and because it wouldn't have a creaky, wobbly space bar.

    And I must say: I LOVE IT! Battery performance is not as good as the Motion but very adequate. Design is great. I have the Slate, and it looks great and different depending on the lighting. The keyboard is close to perfect. I am typing this message on my LE. Couldn't imagine doing that on my Motion. Do I miss the capacitive keyboard? A little bit. Actually only swiping to the left for deleting text.

    Performance is also a substantial upgrade over the Motion.

    All in all, I believe the LE is a tremendous good buy and very underrated not only in the MSM but also here on Crackberry. It reminds me of the Classic and Q10, which I believe to be the best BlackBerry phones ever, behind the Passport.
    I will fully enjoy using this phone until the KEY3 comes out in 2020

    I've missed mine too, but I found switching between Auto/Manual mode helps in terms of good quality photos (depending on lighting/location) - not ideal, but does the job for now!

    People argue about low light photos until the cows come home.

    But for normal pictures in decent light, it's at least as good. Plus it has bokeh.

    I wouldn't sell mine for any reason/device, including KEY3.

    I'd just buy the 3 and keep the Atomic as a second device lol

    I've migrated from a Key2 to the LE since start of the year and really loved it - soft touch, soft keys (with frets) that are so much easier to type on and so light in the hand too, really handy especially for long calls - also the Red version I got is just beautiful to look at. Camera could be improved and wish for a better battery and more RAM but can deal without these - I've used had nearly all BlackBerry devices and this is my favourite so far

    Aaaand i went for it ;-)

    Very good looking device (champagne) - better keyboard than KeyOne fore sure. Gonna have fun comparing the clickyness to my Key2 lol. ....

    .... Damn that space bar sits tight ;-)

    Must say BBMo did a very good pkb device there for a good price.

    So far I’m liking mine.
    Keyboard is easy to use with good feel.
    Good responsiveness overall.
    Battery life has been adequate but it’s only been one day.
    Camera is ok but nothing to write home about.
    Wish it had Pie but hopefully soon.
    Nothing to complain about really.

    I just switched back to my Slate LE (been using the Atomic for like 2 months) and going back to a more traditional color is a bit refreshing, I must admit I was getting just a liiiittle bit bored of the red.

    I may use the Slate for another month or so before transitioning back to the Atomic

    As usual, we are 100% on the same page!! My Motion has a chipped top but works great and I'm using it to type this. I use it to tether my laptop and to watch videos, and if it's near, then..

    As you say, the LE at that price is a no brainer and I also prefer the space bar on the LE. The one thing they really have to tweak is the height as I still hit the space bar instead of the "v" and "b" keys.
    Well done BBMO. This is the best value model you've launched so far.

    Yes, generally speaking, the LE is a flawless device that just works and delivers on what it's designed to do
