    I LOVE the Priv screen size, better chicklets keyboard would be appreciated , still wishing for the control ability of single button cursor like old bold and torch rather than current setup for cursor, and a better charging port that doesn't get wrecked so easily so the micro charger end is waggling and won't consistantly charge the phone . Add a 2 day capacity to keep a viable battery so I don't have to always have a power cell on hand all the time. The phone would be thicker, I get that.
    Today after reading all the issues with Key2 capacitive keyboard use (Physical Keyboard use randomly activates Pointer/Cursor Mode issue) I wonder why Blackberry doesn't create one key , to ,become the trackpad to eliminate the 'capacitive' keyboard and give us an actual cursor button. Then we would all have what we all want. Simplicity.

    The problem is that things are already crammed in due to the keyboard being in portrait.

    I agree that the touch-navigation on the Priv-keyboard is better in theory than in actual use. So real arrow-keys would be great. But that is much more realistic to squeeze in on a landscape slider than a portrait keyboard...

    I personally had a LOT more erroneous input due to the gestures, than actually useful interaction... But as this is the ONLY navigation we got I keep it on, otherwise I would have turned off the physical keyboard gestures long ago...

    PS
    Also see my very old suggestions&comments to BlackBerry with various ways to use the keys they already got. E.g. the use of the Ctrl key for navigating the 'good'-old way from text-terminals..

    Just got my KEY2 LE yesterday. Not looking back to the Priv.

    Even with the ~400mAh head start of the latter, I think I'll get through the day easier with this one.

    It's a whopping 36g lighter also, which to me is a pro. It's less prone to damage if dropped. Typing is alot more effortless and the device is obviously more balanced in the hand when using the PKB.
    Signal strength does seem improved from the KEYone due to the all polycarbonate build.

    I enjoyed my Privs while I had them, but like I said, I'm just not looking back anymore. This is just a more effective work tool overall.

    Next step for BBMo would be OLED display and IP rating... which the latter could work just fine if they look back to the Priv's unibody keyboard design of having 1 single piece of rubber shaped as the keys instead of 35 individual buttons where water can obviously get in between.

    All the best to you Priv holdouts, but you owe it to yourself to try one of BBMo's latest device(s).

    Still wonder why I should either choose a smaller ****ty display (Key2) or smaller ****ty keyboard (Priv). Both suck. Will probably switch to Key2 anyway, but I really miss my Passport.

    I believe some tweaking of Priv PKB could wind up close to Key² ...the upgrades inside with faster, cooler processor, more RAM, QI3, & such could make a very competitive device that would live in the slab space proffered as an "optional" PKB for when the need arises...

    Exactly. It is a general misunderstanding that a slider will be much bulkier than without.

    Have a look at the old Xperia Neo with and without the keyboard.
    They are EXACTLY identical spec-wise. Same display, battery, cpu ... Perhaps a slightly different speaker. The other minor discrepancies you see I believe is just inaccuracy in their database...
    And the real keyboard comes at a cost of 16g and ½mm in thickness, and 4mm in length....
    ...And yes the std. Neo has a more appealing design, with the corners 'slanted' where the Keyboard version have a more flat back and front..

    Advice see if you can figure out what or which app if any is causing the heating.I have an idea that it was the sudden onset of this symptom that caused mine to go into a non stop loop.

    It is highly unlikely that it is a hardware issue. Heat means it is doing 'something'
    Most likely one or more apps that have started wasting your battery in the background.
    See post earlier.
    Perhaps a 'free' app wasting energy on fetching and showing ads or stealing your data.
    A good guess is recent updates or new apps.
    Try to temporarily install a battery surveillance tool like GSAM, it can do wonders in pinpointing the culprit(s)
