    As always, there are users on Amazon who are posting fake reviews to take down the rating of the phone.

    For example:
    "Terrible phone. Arrived late. Blackberry is the worst run company in North America. The phone is slow and unresponsive. The keyboard is too touchy and very difficult to type on. Spell predict changes your typing on almost every word, and cancelling spell predict will not even capitalize your first words.
    No other phone company in the world announces a phone in January, then delays it in April because of internal errors, and then by June 2017 you still cannot buy one here or even on their own company website! The people who run this company are the dumbest in the industry. I will send this phone back tomorrow."

    Dude says it arrived late, and he got it today (launch date!!!!). Well if it's true he'll return it and one of us will be able to get it haha!

    I know it doesn't affect this crowd, but it would be good to report if you can/wish.

    Should we report the obviously fake 5 star reviews too?

    If anyone bought of Amazon I encourage you to write a review! If it's good then say so.
    But the truth would be best.

    I think so too. I think it goes both ways. But a product should not be diminished/praised over fake reviews.

    Haha. I am a fanboy for electronics as a whole. I do love BB and want the KeyOne. But I think is unfair that those who are looking for a good device like the KeyOne go away because of reviews. (Of course right now, they are leaving because of lack of stock lol)

    So you are saying all the reviews from techtubers are fake? The device is good, that review in particular (the one quoted) is pretty fake haha. You can opine otherwise, but it at least "seems" fake. Or as our dear press says "alternative facts"

    They deserve "unfair" reviews. This launch has been filled with delays and lies, with more to come.

    While I think that they have done poorly, I wouldn't say they lied. Maybe they just underestimated the demand for it. If I would know the facts, I would be able to say that it is a lie, without those (which I don't have, I don't know about you) I can't say they have "lied"

    Edit: I agree with the delays. They are almost unbearable.

    Have you ever spoken with a rep. You do know how clueless they are about most things right. How do we know that they are not just your average rep and don't know all the details. For all we know, they were stocking on May 31, and available on June 1. We'll see
    Multiple people talking to different reps have said the same thing. Even the dumbest rep can look at a warehouse system and see "0".

    Look who's going to go on Amazon to buy KEYᵒⁿᵉ actually knows what he wants. It can't be window shopping that someone will stumble upon this.

    As for reviews, people don't generally rely on Amazon reviews before spending that much. They'll just read or watch on YouTube. BlackBerry has done quite well from that respective.

    When it comes to Amazon ratings, I use the "figureskating or Diving method of scoring" I eliminate the high and low scores that have no real comments. I then read the rest with an open mind. It seems to work.

    So much DRAMA. Get over it already. I mean really. It's a cell phone. The availability is what it is. If you don't like it move on, but this constant complaining has really become totally out of control. Do something positive with your lives people.

    I wouldn't call it fake, it's just one of those miserable bastards, Amazon is full of reviews like that. People confuse product reviews with seller feedback. I've seen one star reviews left because the courier left the package in the rain and such - what's that got to do with the product? The rest about the keyboard and that - subjective stuff, the usual thing humans do. While I'm still on the fence about buying the K1, I know the keyboard cannot possibly be worse than Priv's, which is not bad if a little soft after a year.
