So those of you that bought one, how's it going? Got any pro or negative things about the device? I'm loving how much customising I can do, literally can make this phone do whatever I want. That's something other phones need to adopt I think. Even the convenience key is awesome. My negative is that the fingerprint scanner is not always the best to use. Sometimes it doesn't recognise my print. But mostly it does. I'm not finding any lag, love the keyboard and all its shortcuts, they are so easy to use. All in all I'm very happy with it.

I am probably going to return mine. Nothing wrong with it, I actually find it to be quite awesome.

However, it is just too small for me, not just the screen or the keyboard, but the whole package.

Granted, I knew going in it was a small phone, but I never saw one in real life, and I just thought I could deal with it.

Currently I have the S9+ and the LG V20, so the KEY2 was just too small to get used to.

Other than that, the phone has exceeded all my expectations

That's a shame. I'm leaving the Pixel 2 XL behind for this. I'm finding I'm enjoying it more and more each day. I've never used a phone that I can make as individual as this. I'm loving the whole set up of all the short cuts and fast access to apps. I do miss the pixel sometimes but I think I found my thing with this one.

Received mine today so far it's what I expected no surprises. Love the keyboard and how it feels very easy to get use to. UI is very quick no lag at all I have 40 apps installed also. The camera is not as bad as everyone is saying just need to adjust for each shot it has a quick shutter but you need to make sure it correctly auto focused. Pretty much as expected hopefully it's a solid device build and I get some updates to fix the minor things it's lacking.

I love my Key2! It replaced my Blackberry Priv. I have had it for a couple of weeks now. Especially Impressed by the battery life, how well everything works and how snappy it is. Screen works well and I don't really miss the smaller screen compared to Priv. Some people seem to be having issues with Camera but mine seems to work fine (even in low light.)
The only real issue I have had (and it is more of an annoyance) is one device's (Fujifilm XP130 tough camera) App seems not work under the version of Android on the Key2. It still works on the Priv.

how it it multi-tasking specially while connected via Bluetooth? I have a KeyOne and it's greatest downfall is low Ram. if I connect to my car stereo and have both navigation and Spotify going it will freeze up. wondering if the K2 was any better.

So far it's been a great device no real issues that others are talking about and I am coming from a IPhone X. I was a little leary seeing all the complaints on Crackberry but all good here.

one of the things with this phone is the sheer amount of things you can have running at the same time. if I ever had any doubts about that processor, the RAM more that makes up for it.

I'm not happy at all with the lack of wifi calling support. I'm really hoping that they will get that added in soon. my phone doesn't work when I'm at work without wifi calling... I have TMO and work in an area that doesn't have coverage.
