This is no secret to anyone, Blackberry has recently gone through a bad spell on the smartphone market. Despite having excellent safety software and having traded its Blackberry 10 system for the more popular Android, the American company’s smartphones continued to play the second roles. That is why no one expected much when Blackberry announced the release of the DTEK60 in 2016. These fears will soon disappear, this smartphone finally turned out to be the best Blackberry has released to date. Indeed, it is equipped with a display of 1440 x 2560 pixels on an AMOLED panel of 5.5 inches. Powered by Android 6.0, it is supported by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. The DTEK60 has 32 GB of storage space, expandable to 256 GB via a memory card, and 4 GB of RAM. It is equipped with a 21-megapixel camera capable of filming 4K videos, and an 8-megapixel secondary sensor. A fingerprint scanner is present on the back of the handset.
At first sight, what is immediately noticeable in the Blackberry DTEK60 is its design that has a lot of success. If this one seems familiar, it is because it is based on the Alcatel Idol 4S: same AMOLED screen of 5.5 inches, same metallic strip and same glass rear panel. The Blackberry smartphone is however much better performing; it is faster and is even one of the fastest mid-range phones. Thanks to its Snapdragon 820 processor and 4 GB of RAM, no delays were found during the tests that were carried out on it. If Blackberry said that the DTEK60 is the most secure Android smartphone in the world, we can say that its battery is much better than most of its competitors. Its 21 megapixel photo sensor allows taking extraordinary pictures and 4K videos, except in low light where it seems hesitant and the resulting image is generally blurred. Among the rare defects of the DTEK60 is the lack of waterproofing, its large size that makes it more difficult to handle with one hand and more likely to stand shock, its large screen and its glass rear panel can crack fairly easily.
If Blackberry has made great efforts to secure the DTEK60, it remains however vulnerable to scratches and cracks. But this concern can easily be avoided by equipping yourself with a Noreve protective cover. Noreve covers are designed to stand shocks and protect your Blackberry and its screen from cracks. Even if Noreve covers are not waterproof, they can act as a first shield against accidental splashes for a non-waterproof smartphone. On one hand, these covers have unparalleled elegance mainly thanks to their impeccable finish quality and their multiple cut-outs that allows you to access all features of your smartphone.
Thanks to its whole experience, Noreve offers its customers the possibility to customise the protection of their choice to their liking. Thus, a vertical flap cover, one with wallet-style horizontal flap, and a back cover are available to protect your Blackberry DTEK60. Once you have made your choice, you can decorate your cover with your favorite colour and texture, both for the inner and outer lining. Your DTEK60 will then be comfortably installed in a protection that you have customized entirely, to probably not leaving it anymore.
