BlackBerry DTEK50 Review

Score: 68.1 / 100

BlackBerry DTEK50 is a high quality cellphone released in July 2016, provisioned with a quite big 5.2 inches screen, a high speed Octa-Core CPU clocking at 1700 megahertz, and 2 cameras, a 13 mega-pixels back facing camera and an 8 MP front side camera. Great! That's it? Not at all, it's just the tip of the iceberg.

Blackberry equipped this cellphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 8952 system chip, including an extremely powerful 1.7 GHz Octa-Core CPU and a huge 3 GB of RAM memory. This device counts with a quite large 16 GB internal memory and an SD extension slot, which allows you to store a couple hundred apps without running out of space.

This cellphone only has 5.79 inches long and 2.85" wide, but it is still able to fit a a 5.2 inches screen. This cellphone is extremely slim and practical, with a thickness of just 0.28 inches. Blackberry made an amazing optimization job making this cellphone weight only 4.76 oz. This cellphone construction combines Glass and Metal .

Blackberry packed the BlackBerry DTEK50 with an absolutely amazing 5.2" screen, and a resolution of 1080 x 1920 (Full HD), giving this cellphone a delightful graphic quality.

This phone offers Wi-Fi connection (and it can be shared with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE) high performance internet connection and also HSPA+ connectivity, a slower 4G technology and fast 3G data connection, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This cellphone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM connection.

This cellphone features two cameras, a 13 MP back side camera and an 8 megapixels front camera. Its back side camera lens has a maximum F2 aperture so it can shoot awesome pictures even in low-light environments. It is also able to shoot videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 fps.

This phone counts with a 2610 mAh incredible Li - Ion non-replaceable battery that provides this cellphone a great battery life. An issue to consider is that this phone's battery isn't removable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts losing capacity, though with this big battery you will probably replace this phone before it happens.

This phone also comes with a lot of useful features like Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth (4.2 ), GPS Localization and FM Radio, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

The BlackBerry DTEK50 is not a very good choice considering it is sold for 299 dollars, while other similar phones cost a lot less than that. This phone is a great option no matter whether you are a photography fan, want it for work, need a phone mostly for internet broswing and social networks or will use this phone to play tons of games.
