Description

The BlackBerry DTEK50 is presented as "the world’s most secure Android smartphone". Based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the handset encrypts all user information, and comes with a DTEK by BlackBerry App, which can automatically monitor the OS to let users "know when their privacy could be at risk and to take action to improve it". The device is not actually manufactured by BlackBerry, instead being a rebranded, modified version of the Alcatel Idol 4. The DTEK50 shares pretty much all of its tech specs with the Idol 4, though it adds a Convenience Key (on the right side), letting you quickly access your frequently used apps and tasks.

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 424 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

GPS - This is one of the most widespread global positioning technologies, developed and maintained by the U.S. government. It uses satellites in order to detect your location. Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
