BlackBerry DTEK60 Smartphone Review

 

BlackBerry's Lifeboat? With the DTEK60, BlackBerry delivers a well-equipped Android smartphone, backed with the company's renowned reputation for security. But is it enough to save the company?

very bright screen, broad color-spectrum coverage, good cameras, decent loudspeaker volume, additional security features, long battery life, very stable construction, USB-OTG (on-the-go) specification, precise touchscreen, impressive system...

relatively slow Wi-Fi speeds, somewhat imprecise GPS, mediocre color fidelity, slow memory access, some apps do not start or crash, high power usage under load

Learning from its recent missteps, BlackBerry introduces the new DTEK60, which offers a more than adequate smartphone at a reasonable price-point. The product’s shining feature is its improved security enhancements, which in the age of cyber-attacks is...

BlackBerry DTEK60 review: The best enterprise flagship, priced at just $499

 

A couple of months ago when BlackBerry announced it was ending internal hardware development, I read many stories stating there would be no more BlackBerry hardware and thought the company would never release another BlackBerry-branded phone. There was...

High quality fit and finish ; Productive BlackBerry Hub and software ; Nearly pure Android experience ; Fast monthly security updates ; Dual stereo speakers

No water resistance ; Average battery life

BlackBerry DTEK60 Review: Secure Android goes high-end

 

The very fact the BlackBerry DTEK60 even exists might seem like a Catch-22. When a company announces it's stopping all in-house hardware design, the launch of a new smartphone might appear a little awkward.

Security focused ; Better specs than the DTEK50 ; Nougat is guaranteed in a future update

Expensive ; There are other, similar specced smartphones out there

BlackBerry DTEK60 review

 

A great phone with a rubbish name

Great design ; Powerful CPU ; Excellent security

Average camera ; Gaming performance could be better ; Design won't suit all taste

The DTEK60 mixes excellent specs with a gorgeous design and super-secure software, to effortlessly claim the title of BlackBerry's best touchscreen smartphone to date, and earn its place as one of the best Android phones of 2016.

BlackBerry DTEK60 review: More than just an Alcatel clone?

 

BlackBerry has officially stopped building and designing its own phones. When that news broke , it was almost as dramatic as when it announced its first Android phone, the keyboard-equipped Priv .

Attractive design, fast and fluid performance, that great big display and Quad HD resolution looks great, solid battery life, BlackBerry Hub is great

Camera struggles when lighting conditions aren't perfect, camera protrudes a lot too, small gap between glass and metal in our review model

For BlackBerry, coming out with a flagship phone at the right price was always going to be a challenge. With the DTEK60, the £475 price point is halfway between the super value-for-money OnePlus 3 and the more traditional flagships like the Galaxy S7...

It's no secret BlackBerry's had a tough time of it in the smartphone market recently. Despite having great security software and having migrated from its less-than-popular BlackBerry 10 OS to Android, the company's phones have continued to play second...

BlackBerry DTEK60 Review: In Depth

 

BlackBerry DTEK60 Review: BlackBerry's new DTEK60 doesn't come with a flagship price tag but packs a powerful processor and enhanced security features.

Smart modifications to Android ; Great performance ; Premium design ; Solid cameras

Awkward fingerprint sensor ; Lacklustre screen

The DTEK60 is a phone of firsts for the company with the best hardware and software we’ve ever seen in a BlackBerry. From its large, high-resolution display to its powerful processor, Type-C USB port, fingerprint sensor and intelligently adapted take...

BlackBerry DTEK60 review: Not bad, but hey this is pricey

 

BlackBerry DTEK60 boasts of high-end specifications with a Snapdragon 820 processor, 2K display, 4GB RAM, USB Type-C and fast charging support.

BlackBerry DTEK60 review

 

Is BlackBerry's new business smartphone enough to secure the company's future?

Strong focus on security; Good business productivity apps;

Poor performance; Few unique features;

BlackBerry's latest Android phone features sub-par performance, a disappointing user experience and little to help it stand out from the crowd.
