    One week with keyone , coming from Classic. I will not list here advantages or disadvantages of each device. But i want to point a basic difference for those who came from Classic : Classic is a portable device . When you are right-handed you can use your right hand to hold it and perform almost all tasks with your right thumb , using your left hand only when you have to type something. Keyone does not work that way. If you try to hold it on your right hand on the sameway you use Classic it will be a bit frustrating, you´ll not feel it firmly in your hand and you will have to "move it" inside your hand sometimes to reach the screen with your right thumb giving a loose grip sensation. To feel it firmly you have to pick up it with you right hand but than you have to switch the device to the left hand and acess most tasks with your right index finger, and of course both hands when you have to type. Its a big difference. With the classic you could check almost everything with your right hand, now you need both hands to perform a "steady and firm" checking procedure

    I understand where you are coming, finding the difference between Classic and Keyone.
    However, the biggest reason (IMO) is the Hub sliding on BB10. This is the reason you can’t just work with one hand.
    But depending how you’ve setup I’ve gone from using 2 hands to one with the assigned keys. Soft H takes me to the Hub, so I don’t need to reach over to open anymore (hold phone in right and open with left finger)

    If the original Hub was on here, it would make a BIG difference…

    I think its possible to use only the right hand (i´ve configure the H key also) , but to feel the same solid grip sensation you need to switch hands, thats the only way to check whatever you want without feeling the device is not firm inside your hand. Watching other people with their iphones and galaxies its evident they dont even note that device-swing in their hands, they never had a Classic to feel whats is a real firm-grip. With the classic you do not need to stop walking to check. Generally , with this other phones (Keyone included) , you need to.
