My thoughts with this keyboard: It is nice to have one As an accessory that you can always remove without losing screen size for media fun. That's the only plus in my opinion, because typing on this keyboard can get pretty annoying, it simply doesn't register all your clicks, so a proofreading is a must. PRESSES must be hard and slow otherwise you'll end up with not registered letter that will autocorrect into another word. Forget about fast typing, it simply can't keep up. Next issue is that these keys are too close to one another, I always manage to click another key accidentally. No notification whether you're typing with capital letters or numerical numbers, and sometimes keys get stuck on special characters. HUGE FLAW is no backlighting to these keys, I've ready people complaining about it, but I thought to myself that light from the screen might provide some sort of lighting, and I was wrong, since this keyboard is raised above the screen there is absolutely no benefit from screen light, I just couldn't see a single letter. I tried to see if I can type by memory, due to these being so close to on another it just ended up being a mess. Most of the time I ended up clicking on a home button rather than space, so there is no way this keyboardcan be used without light, maybe if you memorize this keyboard fully with key locations, special character keys, where numbers are the rest, which will take weeks if not more.
Do I hate it? No, but I don't know if I'll keep it. I need backlighting, I think it's a must. Including two mages, one with day light, and second one is with curtains slightly closed. I don't think this is worth the full price that it is currently sold as, maybe a $20 value, then I wouldn't mind the compromise, but when I shell out neary a grand on a phone and $60 on this cover, then that's an issue.
Cons: Does not light up. Basically impossible to see in the dark. This is a minor complaint, but as someone who works in the dark a lot, this really limits my ability to use this product.
It does take a little while to get used to a Qwerty keyboard on a cell phone if you're use to using the typical on-screen keyboard but once you use it for a while it gets easier and easier. The keys actually have "click" when pressed so it's easy to tell when you press the keys.
I don't know how it works because it's so thin it's hard to believe it contains an integrated circuit and maybe a Bluetooth radio because it has no obvious connection to the phone. In any case it does work and is recognized by the phone as soon as you click it on. It does cause all the screen icons and pictures to move up so nothing is hidden under the keyboard and results in a smaller overall screen. For viewing 16:9 pictures or videos it's best to unclip it and it can be stored on the back of the phone by clicking it on just like the front.
As far as protection in case of drops or whatever it doesn't offer much protection at all except it does completely cover the back side and all 4 corners. For numbers, a period, comma, or other punctuation it requires a separate key press each time (the 'alt' key) which is a little annoying.
Overall since I've go more used to using it I like it better than the onscreen keyboards seen on all cell phones.
