I wouldn't say BB. Is amongst the best phones out there,but it stands out with a brand of its own. I just need a little advice between this phone and a priv which would be best and why
mah, 13 Mar 2017This is just like Alcatel Idols 4s .Yes they are, only difference is the Alcatel phones have a front led flash whereas the blackberry ones do not.
Have to correct my very last comment. The KeyOne has a better processor. But overall, not really different other than a keyboard. If you do you research about complaints about the DTEK50/60, you will find ALOT of BB customers stating that their BB phone will be the last. And I had been a crackberry baby for years, starting with the BB Pearl in 2006
The comments about the ability or security of the Blackberry DTEK60 are wrong. One, the DTEK has email security ONLY when your are on a Blackberry Enterprise solution. As a stand alone, it is no different than any other Android. Two, the phone is under powered. Three, security updates are laughable. Blackberry flat out lied when they marketed the phone as secure via security updates. Meaning they stated that as soon as Google pushes out their update, Blackberry will push out the updates. This has NEVER been true. Many times, Samsung, HTC, etc, pushed out updates long before Blackberry. Four, your Blackberry IS VERY MUCH HACKABLE, for lack of a better description. Working for a hack team, the more capable hacker can play with this phone all day. Five, Blackberry just came out and stated that they would give the ability to the government to access your phone. This means, YOU ARE NOT SECURED, as marketed by Blackberry. BB sold a perception that the phone is the most secured Android. This is ABSOLUTELY FLAT OUT WRONG!!!!. Six, Blackberry decided that the DTEK50 and DTEK60 would NOT receive the Nougat update, before the phone was even a year old. This tells everyone that Blackberry could not give a damn about the customer. Seven, they sold the DTEK50 and 60 to TCL. A Chinese company. HELLOOO???? Unfortunately, I purchased my DTEK60 before this discovery. This is my last Blackberry and I will do everything I can to do convince others NOT to waste their time and money. Better off with the latest version of IPhone, Samsung with Knox or Google Pixel 2. And for the Keyone, it has less power than the DTEK60. How in the hell is the KeyOne a a better phone

But seriously the DTek 60 is a fine phone. When factoring in what it was built for (go away Facebook babies and gamers) it does everything well. Old school BB users who misses their keyboard... sorry but any pure touch screen phone is going to offend you. Want to take gobs of selfies... yeah this one isn't for you either. Play tons of higher end games... it'll do it, but that's a side effect of the specs not what it was meant for.
This phone is for folks who are emailing / texting sensitive information. It's for someone who wants Android but likes that big brother of the DTek suite watching out for those rogue apps (that thing loves to get mad at any app with add support). The phone is also optimized for this strange function called 'talking' on the phone. It's a tool not a toy.
There are a few things I WISH they'd have given this phone or at least an upgraded version of it. Number one is ip67 or ip68 ratings. Two is wireless charging. And three is some form of impact resistance. Give me those three things and I'd be done with Samsung and full time with BB.
both camera is very bad, worth then 8 mp any Samsung or Iphone 6. and still 6.0 android no any updates to 7.0. sometimes it stops working on Facebook. maybe if any update will come they will improve battery and stop working problems. anyone knows if coming update?
hi, i'm interested about this phone battery. i charging everyday morning and it still working till evening. if i playing any game it comes 30 % maybe after 2.5 hour. anyone knows about this battery problem?
I have seen others with the Dtek 60, I will get this one for me.
It has everything I need, as well, it is the brand I trust.
My better half wants the Keyone . Fine. I'll buy hers first, she loved its reviews and of course the keypad.
Works great, had issues with the battery, but sent it away to Shop BlackBerry, works fine now, after the Sept update, battery is even better, full day use with no problem. The stereo speakers sound good, camera is good as well, it is quick and responsive. Did the 3D Mark bench mark test, was faster than the iphone 7, so a good fast and solid phone.
I own this phone, I have to say that is the worst PHONE ever !!
The system is very slow, it is complicated and the battery wont last, it overheats from time to time, DONT BUY THIS CELL PHONE, blackberry does not know how to make an ANDROID phone and its far from learning.
I had SAMSUNG 4 years ago, but then no expandible memory (like apple phones), switch to LG and was great, its a shame to go this deep with the DTEK 60.
I hope this helps
I've this phone near 6month, the android system is old and yet we can't update this system, but the reality is, the hardware is so good, for handle processing out of 15 applications, we have cool manual mode for 21mpxl camera and listen to the music by stereo awesome speakers on this phone.
Does the BB Dtek60 now comes with Nougat 7.0 or 7.1.1 update? And I'm also wondering why there is still no full review in here?
