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.

BlackBerry's second attempt at an Android smartphone lacks the ambition of last year's Priv, but don't get hung up on that. The DTEK50 is a solidly built device with a super-secure foundation, and the company's take on Android continues to impress. Still, the competition among mid-range phones is fierce, while the DTEK50 has its share of rough edges. Think: underwhelming battery life and sometimes pokey performance. Altogether, the DTEK50 is a respectable phone that will have a hard time standing out to people who don't really care about security.

Security-focused smartphone confirms company's software-first ambitions

In addressing security and privacy needs we can't help feeling that BlackBerry has lost its identity.

When talking about BlackBerry devices, hindsight is always part of the conversation. Yet again, it’s easy to see how the DTEK50 may have been more impactful had it been released as far back as 2014. A mid-range Android phone like this would have been an interesting choice for consumers priced out of the premium market, and in turn, helped the company’s sagging hardware division.

Competent, unsurprising mid-tier Android phone

The DTEK50 won’t “save” BlackBerry, and really, it’s not trying to. It’s just a competent, unsurprising mid-tier Android phone that focuses on the few advantages the company can still claim. If you don’t prioritize security, the DTEK50 won’t convert you. In fact, it borders on bad value. If you do, and you’re on a budget, it’s fine. Not great, just fine.

As a second phone, or a company phone, the DTEK50 makes sense: it seems pretty durable and has a focus on security and organization tools. It’s essentially a less costly BlackBerry Priv without a physical keyboard – two changes which are to the benefit of this handset. The DTEK50 also includes many software features and apps which you won't find on any other device, most of which are useful and none of which are must-haves (though the DTEK security suggestions are recommended).

It is a great phone

BlackBerry Z3

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.

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.

Info & Contact

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.
