So get a BlackBerry Passport. Higher resolution than most Android phones, ability to run Android apps, and the most progressive physical keyboard ever put on a phone (with touch-sensitive gestures). Amazing build quality. Stop complaining and put your money where your mouth is. Stop rewarding companies for the same old crap.

They keyboard is very awkward on the phone for me. To use the keyboard comfortably for my thumbs, I have to have the phone on the verge of falling out of my hands.

Indeed, this is why my wife prefers a slider to a fixed keyboard, she finds the fixed keyboard makes Blackberry and similar phones difficult to hold. She tried a Motorola Admiral when we were looking for her first smartphone, and it kept slipping out of her hands when she'd type.

Oh come on. The Passport's keyboard isn't any wider than a landscape slider.

I wasn't talking about the Passport specifically, I was talking about classic Blackberry style phones in general (as in the Motorola Admiral I mentioned). And who the fuck are you to tell me what my wife prefers anyway?
