    Would you recommend the Key2 for someone who used a Blackberry Torch for 8 years and is heartbroken at having to give it up at the end of the year? I love the physical keyboard, use the phone for calling, texting and web searching/surfing and that is it. NO frilly apps.

    Dude the blackberry is for the business world not social media junkies or someone that have downloaded every other game on Google play

    i use 4 different blackberrys.. might be because i administrate a blackberry server for the corporation i work for.
    My main is the BB-passport, and i rock a 9900 Bold when i'm out doing drinking.

    I'm glad I watched this. I was actually considering one of these but I'm heavy on "Content Consumption" these days though I'm still looking for a decent secure smartphone. Guess I"ll go with a Samsung???

    I wish horizontal slider qwerty keyboards could make a comeback. And I guess you could stick selfie cameras and shit over there as well, allowing for eliminating the notch and stuff.

    …so, the conclusion is: The only smartphone on the market (next to the LE) with a physical keyboard shouldn't half one because you could use the additional space for TED talks or for air. Like any other smartphone. And who cares about privacy anyway, neighborkid shure doesn't.

    I have to side with team BlackBerry and for starters I'm disappointed in Linus. For that guy to be as smart as he is along with calling himself a tech enthusiast, Linus of all people should know that different tech have different functions. I just watched him beg viewers to sit through a video that basically was nothing more than the self absorbed ego maniac judging a fish on its ability to climb a tree. IT'S FOR BUSINESS, nothing was ever mentioned about the built in VPN. ooooooor the specs?

    Here is how to do your job Linus so you can put down the phone. and go play with intels flagship pacifiers.

    This thing is for on the go server check best in communication as well as acting as a mini computer without the need for snap chat or apps alike, btw its not BB's fault that iJustine wont snap chat you back or your inability to keep your hands still while taking a photo. speaking of which its boasting a pair of 12-megapixel sensors.
    All with consistent battery power. this is not even new for RIM the new CEO Stated " I'm not wanting to compete with android or apple this is a LUXURY item for the business savy" speaking of which Porsche is partnered with BB and I'm sorry Linus even your precious Intel is looking to partner with BB. but unlike Intel, BB wont make you apologize. this is because they simply have better things to do than baby sit you.

    Not a great review. Full stops can be typed by double-tapping space. To read a text article double tap the paragraph to adjust the aspect to include just the article.

    I just bought a blackberry Priv about 1 1/2 months ago as a first time blackberry user and i have to say i'm gonna hold on to it as long i still feel its up to the job of modern apps. honestly the slider mechanism feels really solid, i love the physical / capacitive keyboard, and it's the fastest phone ive ever owned. and DTEK is really great at helping me keep my phone free and secure
