BlackBerry DTEK60 Review

Dtek60 – Blackberry’s Touchscreen-only Android Handset:

Blackberry has already switched from its BB10 platform to the Android OS. The BB10 had been struggling hard to win the favor and trust of the people but failed to get the expected response. Blackberry Priv was the first ever smartphone, from the house of Blackberry, that was powered by Android platform. Priv was more powerful than the Dtek60 model on many grounds. However, the marked distinction of hardware components between the two smartphones is that Priv supports a physical keyboard while the Dtek60 model is without it.

Improved Security:

The safety and protection of personal, private and business data has become the dream of every smartphone user. In case a personal phone goes into wrong hands, the owners are less worried about the loss of gadget but more concerned about the security of the data stored in it. The manufacturers have incorporated advanced features into the Dtek60 model which ensure improved security over rival Android devices. For example, its unique hardware contains chips that are protected by cryptographic keys. This prevents tampering and thwarts the hackers. Such an amazing functionality will definitely convince the corporate buyers to bring it home.


The second most important factor that will attract the potential buyers is its affordability. This mid-range phone corresponds to the financial capacity of a larger public. When BlackBerry switched to the Android platform in the Priv model back in 2015, the handset was attached with a premium price tag. It could not attract the expected number of sales because the high price distracted many potential buyers from it. Now though the present device is packed with revolutionary features, the BlackBerry Dtek60 price in Pakistan is incredibly low. It won’t be wrong to call it a budget friendly device.

Incredibly Slim & Light weight:

What slimness would you expect from a smartphone that carries as large as a 5.5” display? May be, you would say at least 9 mm. Then listen. The overall thickness of BlackBerry Dtek60 does not exceed 7 mm. Doesn’t this make it extra slim? It does. So, with this smarter than the smartest handsets, the users will be enjoying a big style on the big moments of their life. The weight again comes as another surprise. This large gadget with all its bulky features measures only 165g! Though seemingly unbelievable, it’s very true.

21MP & 8MP Cameras:

After the display size and quality, the first thing that the users look for is the camera quality. They won’t make any compromise for it at all. Being conscious of such a mindset, the manufacturers have installed a 21MP camera to the back of the phone as a primary shooter. It captures the memorable moments of your life in a full HD format, i.e. 2160p@30fps. The secondary camera, on the other hand, is also of sufficiently high quality, i.e. 8MP. This shooter too has potential enough to record videos at 1080p.

Bottom Line:

There are five things that will make BlackBerry Dtek60 favorite of all. Firstly, it is touchscreen-only smartphone from BlackBerry. The traditional physical keyboard has been totally removed. Secondly, like its predecessors Priv and Dtek50, it is powered by the Android platform. On the third place, it is a high end phone offered against significantly low BlackBerry Dtek60 price in Pakistan. Fourthly, despite a 5.5” large display, the slimness has been maintained at just 7 mm! Lastly, the handset is wonderfully lightweight, i.e. it weighs only 165g – unbelievable but true!
