As a reason of focusing their devices towards the enterprise mobile market, BlackBerry also tries to give the total control of the device and full access in to the Android system. Meantime they make a great effort on the advancements of safety and security features as well. BlackBerry DTEK60 always think about the productivity of safety.

BlackBerry DTEK60 – BUILD

This device fixed inside an aluminum frame, toughened glasses covers the front and back sides of the device. This is much more similar to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Front side glass follows a slightly curvy design on both edges. There is no any effect for the screen with that curvy edges. But it makes the device easier to hold. BlackBerry DTEK60 comprises a dimension of 153.99 x 75.4 x 6.99 in millimeters. You will see that, it is really taller and wider than the rivals, but it is thinner than other flagships such as S7 Edge. Reasonably, thinner design make a big comfort on your hand.

It’s handy and smart at all, but the appearance of the rear glass feel a little bit like made using plastic. This thing can be commonly noticed on many Samsung devices as well, but here it is little bit more than that.

Speaker of BlackBerry DTEK60 are placed above and below the display, we think this is not the most suitable placement for them. As both of the devices were produced by TCL, it is much more similar to the design of DTEK50. TCL is the popular manufacturer behind the Alcatel.

The keys can be assigned to do a specific function or to launch the particular app or action. This allows the ability to user to quickly access favorites.  You may feel it’s little bit harder when you try to reach the power/lock with a single hand, but it makes easier to unlock it with the advanced and responsive fingerprint scanner.

USB-C type port placed at the below of the device for charging and data transfer. They have provided a 3.5mm audio socket to plug in your headphones.

BlackBerry DTEK60 – CAMERA

BlackBerry DTEK60 comes with a 21MP primary (back) camera. It assists you to capture vibrant images with more details. The secondary (front) is 8MP will help you with sharp selfies. You will see the iconic notification LED near the front camera.

BlackBerry DTEK60 – Display

5.5-inch AMOLED display carries a resolution of 2560 x 1440. It is really clear and crisp, but there is something to be improved with colors. When comparing with rivals such as OnePlus 3 and S7 Edge it shows a less vibrancy with colors and it doesn’t present a brighter screen like rivals. Though the screen is great, it will be really good with videos and gaming.

BlackBerry DTEK60 – OS

DTEK 60 pass out the factory with Android OS v 6.0.1 (Marshmallow). It is not the latest Android v 7.0 Nougat. As a result of patching monthly security updates BlackBerry maintain its skin at a minimum. Hopefully, DTEK60 will receive an update for Nougat soon.


This smartphone is powered with a Quad-core (2×2.15 GHz Kryo & 2×1.6 GHz Kryo) and a 4 GB of RAM. Graphic Processing Unit (GPU) is Adreno 530 and have the Snapdragon 820. Above combination prepares a delicious recipe for high performance and efficiency. We think that, this would be a great choice for many Android lovers when considering this configuration.

A battery with a capacity of 3,000mAh resides inside the thin aluminum frame to power-up the whole device. The battery can keep your device in standby within 3G for 336 hours.

Internal memory of BlackBerry DTEK60 is 32GB (Most probably 22 GB will be available for you). If you think it is not sufficient, BlackBerry has provide you the opportunity to add an expandable memory up to 2TB.
