    Here's why. Better reception. Hoping the plastic body will improve both cell and wi-fi. Modern apps. Office life is making me reconsider the need to have access to Android apps. Reasonable price. I think I will continue buying my phones outright and staying off contract. Matte keyboard. I really like this improvement of the keyboard.
    But here's why I might not. I own a Passport. Giving up gestures, peek, wide format, bb10 hub, local calendar , dual speakers, won't be easy.

    I'll pick up one likely. Especially if Atomic is available.

    Yup, I get that. Not a deal breaker for me. But I would miss the swipe left to delete feature.

    Below compromises to choose:
    1) Loose spacebar button on Key2
    2) Missing capacitive keyboard on LE

    Most KEY2 units don't have loose spacebars, despite several users reporting it, it remains the exception than the rule.

    The only thing the LE would have over it is a more satisfying uniform spacebar click compared to KEY2's more high pitched shallow click.

    Again, I use the capacitive keyboard way too much to consider a lot LE for my use. I will still try and get one for my son as he's just about the age for a cell phone.

    The LE looks very promising and is priced right IMO. It should sell fairly well.

    100£ difference between Key2 and LE,
    Would anyone still prefer LE in this case?

    If someone really wants the atomic color, or really wants a spacebar that sounds like the rest of the keys, then yeah. Otherwise, nope lol

    I think the plastic frame may be a plus, given the color options, the lighter weight, and perhaps slightly better reception.

    The better reception remains to be seen

    I wonder why some people want better reception... for sure I am blessed to use one of the best and fastest networks on the planet, but also I have no problems whatsoever with the signal.

    It's the people who had better reception with other phones and not with a BlackBerry who want better reception.

    So I'm the same as you, it's just that swipe left gesture I loved. But just to let you know, i just learned on another thread here that you can use either alt or shift + delete key to "delete the last word". That will be good enough for me, and in fact might be even better, because it achieves the same result as fast, and I won't be accidentally swiping word suggestions I don't want! (btw, I dint remember if it was the alt or shift they said worked to do this)
