Impressioni di uno che lo sta provando su crackberry:
- I don't like the matte keyboards, they press much like like **Q20** in the sense that's plastic and 'light' but with a premium feel to it like the **Passport** however I must say, it's pretty effortless to type on (which I feel like is counterintuitive for QWERTY keypad because the physical response is a big component to the appeal)
The spacebar is a wee bit bigger but it doesn't click right because it depresses very easily, almost 40% less travel distance required to click
- No more right shift button one, replaced with the customizable convenience key (extremely useful!) But that's where I put my Ctrl key on and now it's the Currency key which replaces that function (this is weird thing for me because I always accidentally hit the $ sign at the end of messages because it's beside the enter button but it feels weird not having it in the bottom)
> 6/10 - Keyboard
- No more smooth edges, it kind of feels 'sharper' which I personally am not a fan of. One thing I really liked was gliding into the screen with the curved screen because I use an app that has gesture controls for brightness/volume/back/etc.. (Edge Gestures)
- The power button is replaced on the right side with all other buttons, my one issue with is that I'm left handed and I love the fact that I can power off/on with my thumb.. Not anymore!
- Feels very light and almost cheap, ESPECIALLY with this weird keyboard
> 7/10 Physical Form
- Software is finally smooth, again can't say for certain it's ram management will bog up because it's too early to say but I like seeing on standby about 2.5GB free to use (43% Usability after system only requirements) this is exactly how it should be done
- Hub key customizable by profiles (I don't like that car mode is restricted to activate with only a Bluetooth connection active and a home mode is restricted to activate only with a Wi-Fi connection because I don't use Wi-Fi much and have a designated phone for car usage)
- No more apps refreshing in background, it's really snappy
- I like soft keys now dimdown when not being used!
> User interface 10/10
- The vibration motor is not only quieter but stronger and more concentrated (finally, Jesus the motor they put in they KeyOne is a little hamster on a rugged hamster wheel I swear)
- Call quality is clear (as always)
- Speakers sound the same
- Camera (if you're getting phone and using this as a important decision maker you're not getting a blackberry for its purpose)
> Peripherals 10/10
This is BlackBerry done right software wise but I'm sad to see a slack in the keyboard feel/design. it's literally the only reason why I keep my KeyOne around is because of the feel and keyboard- otherwise this is the solution that we've been longing for- dare I say, finally a true work powerhouse?
If you have been wanting a BlackBerry for a while, I say this is finally the proper solution to fit the itch. if you have a KeyOne currently, definitely get this phone but try the keyboard first before you decide as it's going to be a really different and almost un-tactile experience
Final Score: 8.2/10
