Reviews for the BlackBerry DTEK60

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?
80% Premium, secure and finally for the consumer as well as businesses

For the first time in a while, this is a BlackBerry we can recommend to the individual consumer. It is also a business device, but the flexibility of Android means it is versatile enough to be moulded to the needs of both. It marries the Android operating system with robust, easy to use security features and slick design, all for under £500. It doesn’t have the brand clout of an iPhone or the curved edges of a Samsung Galaxy, but with its admittedly quite straight-faced take on the modern smartphone BlackBerry has just – just – turned a corner. This is an excellent smartphone.

BlackBerry DTEK60 preview: More than just an Alcatel clone?
Source: Pocket Lint English version
With the OnePlus 3 on the market disrupting everything, it’s easy to look at a device like the BlackBerry DTEK60 and think it’s far too expensive. But, at the same time, similarly specced products from the likes of Samsung, Google, Apple and LG all cost more than the BlackBerry. The spec list reads as well as pretty much any flagship smartphone out there. It has the Quad HD screen, Snapdragon 820 processor and 4GB RAM. But it’s still hard to escape the fact that this is a more powerful version of the Vodafone Smart Platinum 7 we reviewed a few months back, and that only costs £300.

BlackBerry DTEK60: Is It Good for Business?
Source: Business News Daily English version
All of those internals and features add up to a device that could entice some workers back to the BlackBerry brand — but the DTEK60 will face some stiff competition. If you order from BlackBerry and pay before Nov. 8, the phone will come with its own case and a rapid charger for free. Check out our list of the best smartphones for business to see which devices we recommend.

It is a very small display format for smartphones. You should by no means be mis-sighted and you will generally see very little on the screen and only have a small resolution available. In return, the device should be very small and handy.
