  1. Good summary.

    Interesting how SoC 625 is 2Ghz versus SoC 835 is 1.9 Ghz. small difference but its there.

    What about the aspects ratio as both are different?

    I think we are all for a big surprise on the smoothness of the KEYone. My short time with it definitely was impressed. Remember though this is poweruser device not gaming.
    For gaming definitely other devices such as the S8.

    Thanks

  2. Great summary Alan. KEYone makes a strong appeal to former BlackBerry users due to the physical keyboard. But, S8 with Dex makes the perfect combo for Mobile Computing. Hard to choose, but due to the Dex I’m leaning more for the S8.
