    I've been enjoying this phone but sadly it has lagged more and more recently so much so that I'm sending it back. The phone not only takes a while to open apps but many times but just freezes and constantly which is unacceptable. I'm a power user and this thing can't keep up. It's a shame. Ordered a htc u11 instead. I'll try the follow up model next year and hopefully it gets a better processor
    Define power user because I use this phone 24/7 so I see myself as power user and I have no lag

    What amazes me is that Blackberry is on very thin ice and they had the opportunity to put the Snapdragon 835 with 4GB ram and more internal storage in this device giving Blackberry somewhat of a chance to comeback. Seems like their capital investors were looking for a loss with the specs in the KeyOne.
    Based on your comment you are obviously not the target user for that phone. I bought KEYone two weeks ago and I do not care about snapdragon 835. I do care about two day battery though. This phone is fast for my work and what I use the phone for. 835 would just affect battery of my phone. I want my phone just keep going and going like bunny... and if you want 4gb version you can buy black special edition soon.

    I started the thread but haven't looked at it because I returned the phone a long time ago. Honestly to say there is no lag is straight up crazy and this is not to bash the Keyone, but every Android phones "lag" or slow down from time to time. And I love when people defend a phone by saying" ah you just don't know how to use it" lol yeah whatever. I did all the animation tricks Yada Yada. This phone not only had slowdowns but it would straight freeze. I don't need a powerhouse media machine but when you're trying to run a business and using your phone for email, estimates multi-tasking, you want a snappy phone that opens apps almost immediately. I could freeze this phone easy with my usage. I don't think this phone is for serious business OR media people. I think it's for nostalgia. If Blackberry wants to catch the eye of more people, they will have to do it with more than just battery life.. they will have to keep up on performance. I'm not sure if it's the skin or optimization but the phone is too slow for me.
    I disagree. Phone works perfectly fine. I use it for work every day. I am yet to see any serious hangup. The phone is more than fast enough for my work and I use it for work a lot. It can be app that you have on your phone.

    I have had my note 5 for 18 months and no lag what so ever. So Android does not slow down after a while for every phone.

    I am yet to experience any lag on my KEYone. The phone is fast. I do not know what lag you are talking about.

    Textra has been hanging up for me. Then creates lag until I'm forced to restart the phone. I have to restart it about 3 times a day. This just recently started happening. I may switch bag to the stock messenger, see if that helps.

    I am using textra as well and I do Not have any hangup. Sometimes is a different app that causes problems.

    Heavy skin? Are we using the same phone because I don't see a heavy skin. It's pretty much stock Android.

    How spoiled we have become. Even the Snapdragon 625 in the KEYone represents hundreds of thousands of times the processing power that put a man on the moon and still people aren't happy.

    I got a lag first time today trying to edit photo file. I was upset for a brief moment until...

    I realized the photo file was actually enormous and it was 6Mb in size. 3040 x 3040 pixels in size.

    I decided to forgive my phone for being "slow" with editing this photo.

    I think my PC with Intel I7 would not exactly be the speed demon doing stuff with this size photo.

    Apps for business are usually poorly made and poorly optimized. That's probably the cause of his slow downs.

    Well people want instant gratification and if its not there they squeal and ***** and moan!

    I have been a big BB fan but have switched from my last BB Priv and got bored and went to Note 5 got bored and got LG V20 and its good no updates to speak of.

    In my experience the K1 is slow or slowER than other phones. I've searched all on CB and AC for the culprit and while many disagree I think the problem is the Hub and the RAM it eats up. I had been debating deleting it but didn't bcuz I wanted a more authentic BlackBerry experience. Well...last nite I took the plunge, deleted/disabled the Hub and it's services and man...my phone is humming fast. And RAM usage is much lower.

    I'm using Outlook and while I may go back to the Hub (it still the best at productivity) I'll do so with the knowledge of what I'm getting myself into.

    I ended up going back to the Hub. Just figured that if I have a BlackBerry then I might as well go all the way.

    Funny thing...after I reinstalled the Hub plus services it started to run faster. Not as fast as no Hub but faster. It hasn't lagged or shuddered once actually. Before it did though.

    Yeah, I couldn't get past the stuttering when scrolling the ESPN app or even on Chrome. Ended up selling the phone.

    Would the Black Edition have the same lag?
