Excellent Device - But Lacks Lastest Andriod OS Updates

TrickyTreeRed has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

Let's be honest... most of the higher-end smartphones out there are pretty good. and the DTEK60 is no exception. It has served me well and has been a pleasant surprise.

First off the built quality on my DTEK60 is outstanding. It feels like a flagship phone with its glass back and thin design. It's a pleasure to hold in the hand. The screen bright and crisp resolution is excellent as are the two front facing speakers.

The pre-loaded BlackBerry Hub and keyboard are well worth the price of admission. The Hub lets you view all your emails,messages from your social media accounts, and notifications in one place. I sorely miss this feature on my iPhone SE that I use for work. Apple need to fix this oversight. And the BlackBerry keyboard, blows what Apple has to offer right out of the water, despite the improvements offered in iOS11.

The Snapdragon 820 processor is exceedingly fast and easily handles multiple apps, HD video, and streaming with ease. The fingerprint sensor works without a hitch and is much faster than my iPhone SE's Touch ID.

The 32gb of on board storage is okay, but having a MicroSD card slot means you are not limited. I have a 128gb card are there are zero issues with lag.

I appreciate the monthly security patch updates but wish BlackBerry/TCL would offer an update to the Android OS. It runs Marshmallow and I feel it misses out on the latest and greatest OS.

The main camera works well and is on par with the iPhone SE and is a little better shooting in the...
