This just a downgrade for Blackberry, I love Z10 with bb10 os but now they're using Android as their operating system which is unstable and alot of animation stutters, from a premium looking Z10, Z30, Z3 and Priv, they downgraded their self to a shape that looks like cheap phones do, why Blackberry.
Marius, 14 Aug 2016Look again and you will discover that this phone is an Alcatel Idol 4 rebranded by BlackBerry.... moreVery nice piece of information, should have researched before commenting.
It's a little bit thicker than the original Idol 4, but yeah... indeed a rebrand (it baffles me).
I still see some lines that reminisce me the Nexus 4, much more than the original Alcatel (where silver frame somehow masks this).
Anonym, 14 Aug 2016Am I the only one that looks to this phone and sees a 2016 "refresh" of the Nexus 4 design? I... moreLook again and you will discover that this phone is an Alcatel Idol 4 rebranded by BlackBerry. The major difference is that DTEK50 runs a (almost) stock version of Android without any bloatware inside.
Am I the only one that looks to this phone and sees a 2016 "refresh" of the Nexus 4 design?
It's a good design to follow though...
Why is it BB always overprice everything just seen this in UK for £299-315 GBP price range Its ridiculous, I thought this would be a £100 phone at the very best, they won't sell this I can see a huge price reduction coming on.

drago, 13 Aug 2016dosmatter how hard they try catch the others brands they way behind specs are from 3 years old... moreThe real costs of production for an iPhone or Samsung flagship is somewhere around $300. What is the retail price for an Apple or Samsung flagship without subscription aka contract free? More than 800 euros!
What is the retail price for a BlackBerry Passport, considered the flagship at the moment, contract free? Around 500 euros!
How many android phones are exposed to malware? Over 900 Million Devices http://blog.checkpoint.com/2016/08/07/quadrooter/
How many BlackBerry 10 devices are exposed to malware - NONE. Of course, never say never but chances to grab a virus on a BlackBerry 10 device are close to zero
So, what are you trying to say by "people who love iphone and samsung phones and paying for high end design and specs not plastic phone"?
dosmatter how hard they try catch the others brands they way behind specs are from 3 years old and design also so bad and price is over 700 like always priv was something what shows how blackberry going down, they must start selling cheeper to get people cuz basic looks decent specs also phisical keybord and 700+ price not sounds great for people who love iphone and samsung phones and paying for high end design and specs not plastic phone with old hardware so one more time ,blackberry your time gone..... You behind way to far
AnonD-571164, 11 Aug 2016It would ne nice if they can remake the Classic or Curve with Android Yep, agree, make classic and passport to run Android
This blackberry device is an overpriced piece of crap, I've got a LeEco Le 1s and it's 3 times cheaper and three times better than this blackberry D crap.

have over heating issue!
just wait for mercury with new sd 625
... moreHave a look here http://blog.checkpoint.com/2016/08/07/quadrooter/
Affected devices includes, among others, BlackBerry Priv and Dtek50. I think over heating issue is the last thing you need to worry right now...
Now, you see why a proper BlackBerry hardcore fan it will truly appreciate and respect the full potential of BB10 OS.
