    I owned the key2 for about a week before I sold it. I did not like the space bar which sounded really cheap plus being in Canada the price of the phone was beyond ridiculous. Flash forward yesterday I bought the key2 LE and I just love it. Not only is is better than the key2 because it's lighter but it's also more comfortable to hold. I hated the sharp corners on the key2. Even not having the capacitive keyboard is not a deal breaker for me because I only ever used it to delete stuff in whatsapp chats. Bottom line for a lot less (I paid 500 for it) You are getting the same phone.

    Yes the specs are different etc etc but in everyday use the difference is marginal. In my opinion the key2 le is the device to go with if you are considering purchasing a key2. Or just wait for the key3.

    I am very happy with this purchase.

    I'm thinking about this option too, especially as an interim phone till the key3 arrives. Depends on them tweaking the key2 and bringing out an attractive bronze version. Let's just I'm watching from the side lines with my Keyone black and Motion.

    I'm loving mine too! I got it yesterday and i'm glad i bought it. The keyboard will take some time getting used to, but i am already digging it. It was fully charged by 3PM yesterday, now it is 8:00AM and at 36%. Wifi was on, bluetooth was on. I listened to quite a bit of music with and without headphones. I made one 43 minute call, and two six minute calls. I used the bluetooth with my wireless speaker this morning while getting ready for work. I also had the bluetooth connected to my car on my way to work. The slate color is sexy as hell too.

    You can't see the photos you took from the stock "Google Photos" app ?

    Maybe you just touching a space bar and photos goes directly to the "Locker" app?

    Dont think so, there are very good reviews on YouTube, maybe a little bit colder the color, but same brightness more or less...
    Enough for me, so happy with my le...i just love it.

    Honestly it's the same damn phone as the key2 but way cheaper and it's lighter and more comfortable to hold. When I had the key2 it just didn't feel right this phone is just superb very glad I purchased it
