Is BlackBerry DTEK50 a Good Buy? Or Will It Get Trouble with Android Again?

BlackBerry was the first preference of business persons and professionals. Before the iPhones that become mainstream of security communications now, BlackBerry is the captain of the dignity ship. The adaption of the open-source android technology into the mobile phone market and the availability of the applications suppressed the other brands with custom software.

One of the brands that were suppressed in the market was BlackBerry with BlackBerry OS after Nokia with Symbian. BlackBerry was a special operating system with the support to some Android applications and Google Play services. Later, after the evolution of Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0, the support to Google Play Services on BlackBerry devices has been revoked which pushed the users into a pit hole.

After so long time in producing and after being taken over by several hands, the company has decided to come up with a most secured version, BlackBerry Priv with a sliding keypad for a 5-inch phone. Though it satisfied the security requirements, it couldn’t satisfy the customer with a huge size and mutant shape.

BlackBerry has introduced a new android smartphone after Priv, i.e., BlackBerry DTEK50, a mid-range budget smartphone of this era configuration.


BlackBerry DTEK50

BlackBerry DTEK50 is mid-range budget smartphone from BlackBerry unlike previous premium versions. It comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 617, 3GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage which can be expanded up to 2TB extra with external microSD card. This is a 5.2 inch screen phone that runs on Android Marshmallow 6.0. The camera module comes with 13MP rear and 8MP front for selfies.

Security is the main feature of BlackBerry phones. It vows to manufacture the device with all security measures and send security software patches often. This the main advantage of BlackBerry smartphone after all.

BlackBerry ditches its own operating system and adapts the Android in the mainstream. So, most probably, you won’t be getting the Google Play Services errors on the device just as we used to get on previous BB phones.

There is another thing to consider when buying this DTEK50 device and that is the price. The BlackBerry DTEK50 is available for $299 (appx. ₹20,000) in the US when pre-ordered. I will come up with a complete review of DTEK50 along with pros and cons.

If you are looking out for a secured android device at a mid-range budget, at $299, BlackBerry DTEK50 can be a good buy.
