With its slightly awkwardly named DTEK50, BlackBerry probably has the most secure Android smartphone at the starting line. The strengthened Android 6.0 Marshmallow runs encrypted, does not permit any code injections, and only launches when the bootloader has not been compromised. In addition, the aptly named DTEK app scans for suspicious activities on the smartphone and provides suggestions on how to make the handset even safer. The manufacturer's update policy also shows just how serious BlackBerry takes its security approach. BlackBerry aims to react to cyber threats much faster than the competition and proved this recently with the very quickly released patch for the "QuadRooter" security vulnerability. However, why the DTEK50 is not equipped with a fingerprint scanner will remain to be the manufacturer's secret.

Cautious and standard

BlackBerry DTEK50

from What Mobile ( )

The DTEK50 isn’t a device that’s going to turn a lot of heads with it’s looks, but it is a fair effort from BlackBerry. However a fair effort isn’t what BlackBerry need right now, considering how deep in the red, the Canadian manufacturer is.

The DTEK50 isn't a great phone, but it's not a bad one, either. Despite my ambivalence I recommend you at least seek one out, if only to disavow yourself of the idea that BlackBerry circa 2016 in any way resembles the hardware giant you have been defending or raging against for the... More

The DTEK50 isn't a great phone, but it's not a bad one, either. Despite my ambivalence I recommend you at least seek one out, if only to disavow yourself of the idea that BlackBerry circa 2016 in any way resembles the hardware giant you have been defending or raging against for the past seven years. Under John Chen's reign, success looks very different — it looks like a phone designed and built by another company, utterly unremarkable and free of affect.

Decent for its price

BlackBerry DTEK50

from Absolute Geeks ( )

All in all, it’s a decent phone that scores a “fine” on most counts, but you’d be hard pressed into discovering what makes it different, because the answer to that is, not much.

Does not rely as much on technical superlatives

The handset's many positive qualities are unlikely the reason that Blackberry has not yet had any major success in sales with its Priv: The accurate touchscreen, the non-slip casing material, and the high-resolution screen please in everyday use. The various software modification and decent primary camera are also handy. Although the performance of the Snapdragon 808 rarely can keep up with the more modern competition in comparison, it is enough for a smooth user experience. An expense of the relatively slim build despite sliding mechanism is the proneness to overheat. Furthermore, the device does not offer a fingerprint scanner or a better front-facing camera to draw level with other premium models.

An Android phone with a BlackBerry logo

BlackBerry DTEK50

from Cnet ( )

BlackBerry's DTEK50 is nothing particularly special, and it's a little underpowered to boot. There's no particular reason to buy it over any other competent Android phone, even a notably cheaper one like the Moto G4.

A very nice combination of specs for a pretty affordable price

BlackBerry DTEK50

from Price Pony ( )

Like most things, BlackBerry DTEK50 sure has its own weak and strong points. However, we would love to appreciate the effort of the Canadian company this time, after a long period of struggling, when their products kept coming at high price and lack of updates from the trends.

The BlackBerry DTEK50 is a good phone. Above average, even. But we can’t fully recommend it because of the way BlackBerry is marketing it. The perhaps incorrect status quo is that people don’t want to worry about security; they just want a phone that works. Security flaws on huge scales are largely down to external database hacks, not device vulnerabilities. The DTEK50 is a good phone at a good price, but it isn’t different enough to drag BlackBerry back into smartphone relevance.

A secure smartphone with many compromises

BlackBerry DTEK50

from Android Authority ( )

The Blackberry claims that the DTEK50 is the world’s most secure smartphone, and if security is your number one priority, Blackberry’s second attempt at Android won’t let you down. However, it falls short in a lot areas that prevent it from being a great smartphone.

It is a great phone

Price and other specifications are also good. But drawback is lack of dual sim as well unsupportance of NFC and limited active frames.

Blackberry is back in the game with the Z30. The sound quality of the phone is excellent. Texting a is as good as any Samsung or iPhone I have tried. The Z30 excels with the reliable long battery life which is critical in an office setting. The web browser is as quick as any I have used on any cell phone. I frankly don't care if the phone doesn't have mind boggling screen resolution, it is a phone not a camera, and is more than adequate.

Great comeback for BlackBerry

BlackBerry Z30

Although mine only has an above average battery life, I found the HUB and swipe much more fluent than other phones I've had. The browser is very fast and it surprised me by the quality of the screen. All in all, I would defiantly recommend this phone to friends and colleagues alike.

Underrated

If you are looking for a communication device rather than a camera then do not overlook the Z30. The upgraded platform is app friendly and I love the Hub, where I can get all my messages in one convenient spot. Most of all, being a Canadian, I get to support a national company.

About BlackBerry

Research in Motion, RIM, is a Canadian-based wireless device company famous for the development of the BlackBerry smart phone line.

RIM was founded by Mike Lazaridis and is based in Waterloo, Ontario. Before the development of the BlackBerry, RIM worked with RAM Mobile Date and Ericsson, assisting in converting the Ericsson-developed Mobitex wireless data network into a two-way paging and wireless email network.

RIM has gone on to develop many different BlackBerry devices, which have become the smart phone of choice among business and government professionals. So loyal are BlackBerry users that the devices have come to be known as Crackberries, a back-door joke aimed at users who claim they cannot live without them.

Major competitors include Apple Inc., HTC, Palm, Motorola, Samsung and others.
