    Was at my local best buy in NYC today and noticed the key one on display. It brought back great memories of all the blackberry devices I had in the past so I decided I buy a 64gb black edition on Amazon to try out. It'll arrive tomorrow.. for those of you using this device, is it worth buying in 2018?

    It looks incredible in all black. I'm excited to try it out!

    It works perfectly fine. If you're switching from a galaxy or pixel to a KEYone than obviously your experience viewing media won't be as great initially. However, it's human nature to just adjust. Once you're used to the smaller LCD display, it works perfectly fine for YouTube videos. Moral of the story is the KEYone doesn't have a BAD display but it's certainly not the best, nor was it intended to be the best video viewing device.

    The bigger issue is RAM usage by newer OS releases. You can't have any apps open in the background, because they constantly get kicked out of RAM and lose state.

    The KEYone is a 4X4 Gas(3/32) F250 or Diesel(4/64) F350. Android flagships are like Corvette or Viper. Some Android flagships are like Cadillac or Chrysler. It’s just that BlackBerries to Apples, they’re different fruits.

    I'm waiting for the keyone 2. I wanted to love the first iteration but it would freeze and crash constantly. I'm crossing my fingers that the 2 will have 6gb ram and better optimization.

    Haha. It probably won't have 6gb ram. Here is to hoping also

    I had the original KEYone and upgraded to the Ltd Black Edition and yes there is a difference. I am loving the K1. My son has the Motion and reports zero lag as well as fantastic battery life. I was also involved in a bad car crash where my K1 was thrown (the SUV was totaled). Not a scratch on the device!

    To set things up, I am NOT a gamer. I watch YouTube video, do emails, text, and make phone calls. In this context the original KEYone silver works wonderfully as long as one closes apps regularly. The BE will be even better
