summarizing opinion across 11 expert reviews

What We Liked

  • Elegant, classy glass and metal design with high quality finish - well suited as an office device
  • Feels great in the hand
  • Vibrant, crisp display
  • Nearly pure Android experience, with the added Productivity Tab & BlackBerry Hub to give you quick access to your calendar, unread messages, tasks, and favorite contacts - serving as an important element of efficiency on the DTEK60
  • The BlackBerry on-screen keyboard is fast and accurate
  • Additionally security features like the DTEK app, and fast monthly security updates - arguably making it the most secure Android phone right now
  • Full enterprise mobility management support
  • Smooth, reliable performance
  • Very good dual stereo speakers - louder and clearer than most other flagships
  • Good camera (though not quite up to the level of top Android cameras like the Google Pixel or Galaxy S7, especially with low light photos)
  • Decent battery life - lasts the day with moderate use
  • Support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging technology

What We Didn't

  • No water resistance, unlike some other flagships
  • Back glass scratches easily (so using a case is highly recommended)
  • On the whole, while security is its forte, and that might be valued by some users, it falls behind other flagship devices in many things which are more relevant to a general smartphone user
