    Sounds seems a bit louder than on the KEYone, that's for sure. On max volume can get a bit tinny, but crank it down a notch and it's ok.
    Nothing groundbreaking, as expected.

    Haven't really had the chance to test the camera yet, but it doesn't seem to be the go-to choice in low light. In bright light it's serviceable.
    Again, I think most of us expected this.

    The keyboard is pretty nice, key travel just a hair shallower than KEYone but nice uniformity throughout each of the keys. The spacebar is fine, it makes a discreet sound which is just a tiny bit different than the other keys, which is also definitely the case for the KEYone. It doesn't move around any more than all the KEYone's I owned. It's very solid.
    The fingerprint sensor is nice too, worked every time for me so far.

    The fact that the spacebar sounds/feels closer to the rest of the keys than the KEY2 is quite a plus.
    The capacitive scrolling is a bit missed, I'll have to do without it.
    Matte keys are nicer to the touch than glossy of the KEYone.
    Keys don't sound too loud, a nice volume.

    I forgot to mention, I'm really digging the weight of this one. Typing feels so much effortless compared to the KEYone which has a more clunky feel in the hand. You won't feel the need to put this one down after 15 minutes holding it to your ear or anything.

    Do you miss keyone scrolling pages? I could do without keyboard swipes in typing but scrolling with the keyboard was very useful when I had my Keyone.

    I thought hitting the space bar was the equivalent of page down? If so, that's good enough for me, maybe even better. Perhaps boon can confirm.

    I believe that feature is app specific since pressing the spacebar to page down has nothing to do with whether there is a capacitive layer beneath the keys or not.

    One tiny gripe is the notification LED.

    For starters, it isn't bigger than the KEY2's which is a shame, however it is diameter wise bigger than KEYone. The question is, is it brighter? Not sure.

    I wish it was exactly like the Priv's.

    For some reason (glitch in firmware?) it doesn't pulsate smoothly. The in-out transition is jittery. I would have just prefer the on/off like KEYone (and all BB's prior) instead of the unsmooth transitions here.

    That could obviously be fixed with an update, my unit is on the August patch.

    How about the rigidity of the device? Nokia WP were solid as a rock with the poly bodies. Is there an flex or creaks when in hand or in use?

    Feels solid enough, I'm not concerned about durability of this one.

    Any light leaks in the plastic?

    Posted via CB10
    No light leaks at all, not in between the keys, and nowhere around the screen either.

    Bonus: All 3 android navigation buttons are the same exact brightness. Some KEY2 users had a dimmer square button, which is not the case here.
