Too much and get lambasted for being unrepairable
Use less and get lambasted for being able to remove the screen
BlackBerry Mobile reps have confirmed the manufacturing process for its KEYone flagship will be tweaked so the display doesn't pop out so easily.

OK so the screen won't pop out any more but doesn't this make it more likely to break completely?
Personally I'd rather have thins go wrong in a way I can fix with a bit of double sided tape rather than having to buy a new screen.
Got it first week and it was rock solid for two months, my S7 was relegated to back up, totally brilliant device for what i wanted and so glad to have a keyboard back in hand. I was watching the news about the screen pop and thinking it would happen to other people.....yep it hit me last week. Noticed it lifting at one corner when the phone was face down. To be honest i didnt want to be without it so just nipped it around the corner to the local apple repair specialist (the guy makes a nice living from repairing the fruit bars which tells me everything i need to know about them) and he reglued it for a drink, it was out of my hands for 10 minutes and its back to rock solid. Yes its a pain in the arse but early adopters are used to pain.
On a side note Apple repair man was very impressed with it.
