      1. @adiwan Oh, I really would like a physical keyboard on my phone providing it was at least a bit more comfortable to type on than a Rii-Wireless-Keyboard ( the thingie that is shaped like a game-controller )

        1. @drinkingpony I own a Blackberry KeyOne and I really like it. It has Android 8.1. The Buttons feel great. The whole keyboard is capacitive so you can swipe over the keyboard to scroll (I rarely use that). And it has a fingerprint reader in the spacebar. Some people wouldn't like it because its power button is on the left side of the device but I don't mind it. If you get it then take the 4GB RAM version instead of the 3GB RAM version. The successor KeyTwo is released and has some minor upgrades. There is also a budget version of the KeyTwo.

          1. @adiwan Waitwait, I thought Blackberry only put their own OS on their devices.

            1. @drinkingpony They don't produce their own hardware for years. They licensed this off to another company and Blackberry solely concentrates on the software side and use Android as their base OS. The installed Android is as stock as it can get. There are only some minor adjustments like a side menu that you can swipe in for quick access to applications, email, calendar and such. But this can be deactivated. The Blackberry email client is my favorite.

              1. @adiwan Hmm, I might get one once I wear out this Huawei then. Though I must add that I kinda hope that some of the applications will play nice with it.

                Agenda, Whatsapp, King Calculator, perhaps an emulator or something. Though the last one will probably not see much usage, but it would be nice to see nontheless.
