    Just plain forgot I put it there. Was changing for the drive home after a mountain bike ride and sat the phone on the hood and then my dumbass just left it there. It's working fine but that made me decide to break out my Priv to make sure it was still ok in case there's an issue with the Keyone that hasn't shown up yet.
    Glad you got it working and no real damage. As for the priv I just got one on the bay before Xmas and love using this slider over the K2.

    I've just picked up a brand new Keyone silver having gone from it, to a key 2, to an iPhone X to BlackBerry keyone black edition to Note 10, to BlackBerry classic (too slow now) and now back to keyone silver. The silver keyone even with 3GB ram still holds its own against all the above. I like the classier look on the silver over the black edition and think I'll stay with this now until hopefully the key 3 comes out. I also agree that the keyone feels more premium than the key 2. Key 2 was too light for my liking.

    Glad I’m not the only one who feels key2 is too light to hold. I have gone from Q10 to Sony, to Note, to iPhone , to Note to Key2 and back to IPhone but feel itchy to get a keyone silver edition for its premium look

    I never had issue with 3GB in my DTEK50. But I don't game and nor did I or do I leave much if anything running in the background. I personally think anything over 4 is overkill in these devices. All the speed tests I have seen, to me, are silly and far removed from how I and I believe most people use their mobile smartphones. That said I did purchase the Black Edition Blackberry KeyOne. Its been excellent for my needs.

    Get the Black Edition. Trust me, the extra gig of ram is a big difference.

    Yup, get the black edition. It makes all the difference in the usage and fluidity. I actually owned a silver edition but got rid of it to get a black edition from all the lag that made the 3gb Keyone unusable for me. But I have no complaints on the 4gb Keyone.

    Hi All

    I have been using IOS ecosystem for a long time. Just last week, i bought a key2 on Friday but after using it for one day i decided to sell it and it is now sold. Reason was the phone feels too flimsy and the typing wasn’t easy with the soft keys. Now I am thinking if I should pick up a good condition keyone silver for around 68USD but without box and accessories, am I silly to sell the higher specs key2 for a 3GB RAM 32GB keyone just because for the more premium look?

    P.S. I will be continue using the iphone as the main driver, they keyone would be as a secondary phone.

    Any advice is appreicated.

    Cheers
    Make sure you get the latest build with better adhesive on the screen

    All Black KEYone's have the better adhesive.

    There's no reason to get a silver

    As for the 3GB vs. 4GB RAM, it really depends how you use your phone. My AT&T Space Black KEYone with 3GB works great 99% of the time for me, but needs an occasional clearing of app caches and restart like every bother Android phone.

    Add a work account from employer MDM. It would change your mind.

    I actually have TWO work profiles (One Google Android for Work from my company's G Suite service and one Microsoft one.) All in all I have 5 different accounts that include email, calendar, contacts, tasks, notes, and Cloud drives.

    I also run Slack with a moderately busy feed and MS Teams with light traffic.

    But I do keep location services and Web and App activity turned off, and I only rarely have multiple tabs open in my browser, which also denies most cookies and scripts, so that probably helps.

    So I think it depends on the particular MDM solution.

    That sucks. Do your coworkers with Android having less than 4GB RAM have similar issues?

    thinking if I should pick up a good condition keyone silver
    I recommend it! I'm typing this on my silver 3gb ram KEYone!! It's a phone that, it turned out, I just can't live w/ out. I did try the key2 but honestly (and you and I seem to be in the vast minority w/ this opinion) the design didn't stand out to me as strongly. When the KEYone came out, from the pics to actually holding it in my hands - it blew me away. The key2 makes me feel like it's an earlier gen device (despite the sleeker top, etc) and the lighter weight, the less clicky keys, the more squared off design; it just didn't win me over. I love my KEYone from just about every angle, love the left side power key, the placement of the volume rocker (not too high; Motorola is the worst w/ this tho). It has hiccups here and there but it's nowhere near as bad as my Priv where I've had Google maps load for 40+ sec and then nothing happened lol. Also the camera is good, it's very good and can take impressive shots. Loudspeaker is great, tho headphone audio (for music) isn't excellent. Love the clicky keys (in contrast w/ Priv softer keys). Battery life continues to be strong for me, but it's not reaching the 8+ hrs of screen on time I used to get in the beginning; I still avg around 6-7 tho and have never been able to kill it in a single day (and I've tried! I've done YouT streaming on our main tv while Bluetooth music in the kitchen for hours). I love the navigation buttons and how they're closer to the middle of the phone (and how they don't fully dissapear the way they do on a key2) and it's actually become one of my pet peeves on other phones (my Priv gets away w/ it cuz the speaker is so large at the bottom that it acts like a huge bezel, KEYone is even better tho) and many newer phones give me wrist cramps lol, from the LG v40 to the Note10+, etc. It's def worth owning this phone, and I've been enjoying mine for over 2 years now.

    For me, minimum requirement for today is 3GB of ram with Snapdragon 600 variant or relevant. Will be ok for doing office tasks, not sure about multitasking.

    For multitasking, I’d suggest 4GB RAM as minimum. I can use my 3GB KEYone fine at introduction but 2 years later I notice difference compared to my 4GB KEYone multitasking.
