    Where is status lite? GPS search yields a ton of crap. Do you have a direct link?
    https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/syst...mt=8&at=10l3Vy

    The pro version allows you to have graph and RAM usage on your iphone! But even the Lite (free version) has tons of info

    Sorry my bad, it's called "system status lite"

    I think I need to restart daily.
    Perhaps my usage habits are different but once every second app starts to reload, then it's intolerable.

    This is the biggest gripe I have against KeyOne.

    No daily restarts needed. Memory is supposed to be full for caching reasons and it absolutely makes sense.
    Let me get this straight. It is a great phone phone over all. But not for speed reasons in terms of Android implementation. If they optimize it a bit more all is good.

    OK I see a big difference with Nova Launcher. 8 apps and no redraws so far. Will report back tomorrow.

    After an hour of Nova, I can see the Free Memory around 1GB as oppose to BlackBerry Launcher where it was around 600 MB or lower.

    Note: I haven't used it for a day yet

    For $200 more, I think one would expect that. K1 is a midrange phone and those really aren't apples to apples comparisons. K1 is going to sell for the pkb for the most part anyway, IMO.
    Isn't the K1 itself priced at $150 more than other phone with similar midrange specs?

    Yes , but nobody else has a capacitive keyboard that is an incredible tool. If one buys a phone simply for specs, there are plenty of options.

    I'm sure there will be plenty of updates forthcoming from BlackBerry over the coming months, to address optimizations. It's still very early, and the phone is barely even released.

    Update since I started this thread: not ONE lag experience EVER. Use to have 3-5 battery hot etc etc on Priv daily. KEYone is amazing! Battery is also insane. It never dies. All day long and still at 70%. Loving this thing!

    How well is the UK version working with AT&T? I'm on straight talk with AT&T sim and would love to get a KeyOne now instead of waiting.

    Is LTE, SMS, MMS and calls all functioning properly?

    And do you need a RAM manager or reboot the phone regularly?

    I wish/hope that is the case, but I've heard differently. I got money in the bank just sitting there. Would order a KeyOne this second if I have confirmation that it would work on ST.

    So for you the pkb alone make it worth $150 more

    Yes, I mean K1 isn't competing with pixel or S8. But as midrange phone, its priced overly that almost reach flagship's teritory. So no wonder if people comparing the performance with flagship phone.

    Same was said for the Priv. Never fully happened.

    No. I don't take into account any type of comparison with any other phones, specs or cost. I'm a BlackBerryaholic. I've only ever owned BlackBerry's, I buy every one that comes out, and I'll be getting this one.

    So my opinions are completely biased and one sided.

    I've rebooted maybe once when there was an update and I've never cleared cache or even heard of a Ram Manager. The phone is fast.

    This idea that just because the 625 isn't super new it's inferior is just silly. The OS, battery, and BlackBerry software kick butt...

    I think yes. Probably 10 $ more for materials, but the usefulness can't be estimated like this.

    I think people rebooting constantly and using RAM manager apps are actually the ones causing the slowdowns. They are forcing the OS to reload every app constantly, including maybe some important apps like the Hub.

    I have never rebooted a device except back in the BBOS days

    Yeah it must be because I'm a hardcore, all-day user, and I've NEVER used a phone that can keep up with my in performance and battery life like this device.

    The $549 tag is a bargain to say the least. The battery KILLS the S8.

    If you want a phone to game on, then get your toy Android / iPhone but this thing is a productivity machine people!

    What is "productivity" you really do in your phone actually (other than communication)?
