    Q10 was honestly a great sized device. Reduce the bezel size around the screen and stretch the screen up to a 3:2 ratio and I'd totally bite! Would make a nice sized K1 mini.

    I would have liked a smaller 3:2 ratio it is ever so slightly too tall - could have used the extra half inch to make a larger keyboard, eliminate the capacitive keys, wham

    Get a Spigen Co.. Style Ring if you need to work your KEYone one-handedly. That improves the handling a lot.

    Big phones are the past/present. We'll see more 4-5" devices as the next thing. I'd love to see a classic sized Android device (with pkb)

    I think the KEYone is really nice just the way it is, but what you describe would be truly perfect! SOLD!

    the size I find is great. I came from a Q10. the one thing that I think would make it more comfortable in the hand would be to have small strips on the grippy rubber that is on the back, on the sides. I found it to be too slippy. A case helped with this, but would be nice to be the careless form

    agreed 100. its too long and my thumb cant reach and it bothers me to no end.
    I have this option in developer settings to use the keyboard as one big track pad with a pointer just like the Web browser on BlackBerry 7 and below. This is on my PRIV. Does this help? Anyone else feel the keyone may be a tad too big ?-screenshot_20170712-060419.png

    Flicked via the BlackBerry keyboard on my PRIV.

    There is ,at least, a good reason/function for this kind of screen : the android 7 split screen ! you need to try it and see how good is this shape (and how necessary it is) to confortably manage two screens

    I put the main blame on Android and the apps : they're not designed for control from the bottom of the screen, often you need to reach an tap a small part of the top corner. (eg 3 dots... hate them!)
    With BBOS/10 and a trackpad you could have a gigantic screen and still use it one handed.

    But I'll live with it. No better option out there.

    I like the size of my KEYᵒⁿᵉ. it could even have been a little bigger. But that is probably because I am used to the PRIV and have often used my PRIV with the keyboard extended when on calls. As for the style? I think the KEYᵒⁿᵉ is beautiful and stands out from the crowd. I like it not being like every other phone. as for color, it is distinctive. Having the top squared off is brilliant; I like the look and it gives more real estate on the inside which is always important for an efficient device. It also makes a bold statement that it is here to work for me, and not just look like "the others."

    I wish the KEYone were a little more on par with the Classic in terms of size. My Classic, my daily driver, is a great size. It is easily pocketable and doesn't feel uncomfortable (for the most part) when carried.

    Me, too! Now my thumb joints don't hurt at the end of the day. I do miss the Passport keyboard. It was so much faster.
