    Get it while the deal still lasts

    I hope I'll like it better than my current Sony Experia Z3 compact. Biggest product disappointment ever.

    Why not just get a real Android phone?

    Is the physical keyboard still that important to people?

    This is a real android phone. It runs Marshmallow, the latest version that also runs on the Samsungs.

    And yes.

    I had the HTC G2 before my current phone. I miss having a real keyboard daily.

    This keyboard is also capacitive, by the way. You can swipe across it and scroll through pages that way. Pretty neat!

    I have a Motorola phone. It has to be one of the first smart phones invented. I have had it for 5 years. It has a real slide out qwerty keyboard. This thing is so shot but I am having a hard time getting away from the old school keyboard. I think I am going to wait until August when the Galaxy Note 6/7 comes out and make the jump to a new phone. It's going to be tough. When I try to type on the screen keyboards I always seem to hit letters I don't want.

    I honestly had no idea that Blackberry still made phones. I never owned one, but my buddy had one about 5 years ago. Seemed like every time we went out his phone froze and he needed to take out the battery and reset it. I'm guessing you had/are having a better experience so good for you! :thumbup2:

    Sir, the intention of this thread is/was to discuss the merits of a particular phone.

    Try it out if you can find it. It's a really nice phone and the keyboard is great. Exactly the phone I was waiting for for many years.

    I've had it for a week now.

    Best phone I've ever owned.

    Hands. Down.

    Absolutely brilliant in every way.
