BlackBerry DTEK50

Engadget Review

BlackBerry's second attempt at an Android smartphone lacks the ambition of last year's Priv, but don't get hung up on that. The DTEK50 is a solidly built device with a super-secure foundation, and the company's take on Android continues to impress. Still, the competition among mid-range phones is fierce, while the DTEK50 has its share of rough edges. Think: underwhelming battery life and sometimes pokey performance. Altogether, the DTEK50 is a respectable phone that will have a hard time standing out to people who don't really care about security.

BlackBerry's DTEK50 is a passable smartphone that was in most cases able to match the security features of other similarly secure devices, like Apple's iPhone and Google's Nexus
