Reviews for the BlackBerry Evolve X

BlackBerry Evolve, Evolve X First Impressions: Overpriced
Source: The Mobile Indian English version
To conclude, the BlackBerry Evolve and Evolve X come loaded with a different design and the display looks promising. However, judging by the sheer specifications, the phones look overpriced. On the software front, both of them does come with privacy-driven features, but that is also present in the rest of BlackBerry devices.

The Evolve and Evolve X are sure to face stiff competition from the likes of the Nokia 7 Plus (Review), OnePlus 6 (Review), and Asus ZenFone 5Z (Review), all of which have got top marks from us at Gadgets 360. We are eager to test the in-built apps and features, which might just help offset the uninspiring hardware. We will also be evaluating the design, display, performance, battery life, and cameras of both phones. For all that and more, stay tuned for our full review of the Evolve and Evolve X.

Qualcomm Adreno 512: Integrated graphics card based on the Adreno 500 architecture, like the Adreno 520 in the Snapdragon 820. According to Qualcomm up to 30% faster than the previous generation (Adreno 510?). Supports DirectX12, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.1 + AE.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

SD 660: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 260 cores (four fast 2.2 GHz cores in a cluster and two power saving 1.8 GHz cores) and a rather slow Adreno 512 GPU. Manufactured in a 14 nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.
