2016 has been the year for many brands to make a great comeback with Sony and Nokia being the top of the crop. However, one of the most popular handset maker of 90's, Blackberry, to make a very underrated comeback in collaboration with TCL, where the former provides the software and latter manufactures the devices. While the handset maker has been making Android smartphones for a while now, DTEK series is the beginning of full-fledged dive into the Android smartphones domain by the brand. Here is a brief overview of the handset for all those who are looking for a good device and have been missing Blackberry.
World’s Most Secure Android Smartphone: Blackberry claims that DTEK50 happens to be the most secure Android smartphone in the world as of now. Considering all cyber threats and security risks, we can do with a handset that gives all the customisation of Android but also keeps us secured. Blackberry has always been known for its airtight security where everything from your location to content on the phone remained private. Now, the brand has brought the same security to an Android smartpghone. A must have for anyone who is very particular about security.
Blackberry Services: One of the main reasons why people wanted to use Blackberry devices was the features integrated in the Blackberry OS. The most favored services of all was the Blackberry hub that brought all your social media at one place and Blackberry Messenger (BBM), the most secure Internet-based instant messenger and videotelephony application. Another great inclusion in this handset is the Blackberry Keyboard, which is an intelligent keyboard that learns from your typing style and let you swap between three languages with ease.
Camera performance in low light is sub-par: Blackberry has always received flake for its camera quality and the same continues with its newest launch as well. While the camera modules are impressive at 13 and 8 Megapixels, the low light captures tend to be quite grainy. This will be deal breaker for many who rely upon their smartphones for all sort of photography.
Performance is not up to the mark: While the handset has been equipped with a Snapdragon 617 Octa-core processor with 3 GB of RAM, it seems to be lagging and straining at times. This might be attributed to the bloated Android OS on the handset and will be deal breaker for Android purists.
