    I switched over from a note 5 to a dtek60 a month ago and whilst I do miss the stylus and quality camera, I can't fault the device for anything. Solid build, great battery and excellent software integration.

    Would of been nice if the DTEK60 was IP58 or IP67 rated.

    Been using an iPhone 6 for a month. I'm in hell. I am amazed at the level of sincere hatred that I harbour for this device..... I'm selling it and going back to my Z10. I have no idea why apple sells so many phones, in my opinion it doesn't do anything very well other than **** me off. And they have no shortage of crappy apps that crash unexpectedly. I will be going to a DTek as soon as possible. How blackberry went bust almost while apple took over the world of phones is beyond me
    Apple isn't even as good as you claim! LOL

    But people like the feeling they get downloading apps and content. They like that it's a personal shopping basket and wallet in one convenient electronic handheld form factor.

    Using an iPhone for rapid-paced, multitasking work communications is only slightly less frustrating than trying to explain how we know evolution is real to a creationist who thinks the Bible is literal truth.

    I tried it for 48 hours, and returned it. It's a nice android phone mind you, although I wasn't impressed with the battery life, or hub experience...but it shows potential. It just needs some refining, to provide a more polished user interface that will appeal to those of us coming from OS 10.

    That being said, it gave me a stronger appreciation for my BB Classic, which I went back to for now.

    Been using Dtek60 since it came out and I am completely satisfied. Or at least until the next BlackBerry Key-One comes out then I will have best of both worlds.

    With all due respect, how is it possible to judge battery performance of any device if you kept the phone for only 48h?

    I longer timeline would have been better, but it was long enough for me to see the battery wasn't going to last as long as I liked. Based on other reviews I've read though, I've noticed mostly praise for the battery life, while some have concerns. It's possible a subset of batteries are having issues.

    As someone who is currently using a fabulous Z30, I find the DTEK60 a very Google centric phone. It appears that the email app is a gmail app which for someone like myself who is buried with email from 3 accounts, the gmail app is terrible, I have not figured out how to rapidly delete emails like you can on a Z30 or Passport. I am also having difficulty with connecting to our exchange service for calendar and contact sync, as Google does not support Active Sync. Which leads to the question as to whether there is another email app available that is similar to BB10 email and calendar apps, which for email, no other device can match IMO. Otherwise, for those who are really into the social media apps or the Google world, the DTEK60 seems to be a really good device. BTW, the charging indicator is the best! Love that long green line and fine print while charging.
    Ummm,, BlackBerry hub?

    It takes several days for a new phone to settle in as far as battery goes. If nothing else, it takes weeks to get the most ideal settings adjusted. I hope, if I get one, the battery is better than my Dtek50!!

    Dtek60 is a terrific device. But I am ready to jump off a bridge with the frequency of errors using the vkb and the huge number of embarrassing and wrong auto-correct. I am desperate for the pkb ....

    Which language are you typing in? On French and English the autocorrect is excellent, except for some French grammar errors.

    Do you use the swipe suggestions on top of the keyboard?

    Disable correct with space bar. That helped me a lot.

    The suggestions are excellent but the check is broken right across the Hub. It underlines incorrectly spelled words in red but... that's it. There is seemingly no means of correcting them.

    I've posted in an existing thread about this so won't hijack this one, but as with the Priv I bought and returned last year the Dtek60 again has a strong aroma of incompleteness.

    When you setup the phone it is - as a previous noted here - an almost entirely Google-centric, overtly Android platform device, and you have to keep flipping it over to remind yourself it's supposed to be a BlackBerry. There are CrackBerry top tips on how you e.g. shouldn't have both the Gmail app and the Hub syncing at the same time on the same device, yet that's how the devices ship! Why?

    It's just silly. I still use a 9810 at the weekends when I dump the smartphone and stick to something simple, unobtrusive and bullet proof when out with the family, and a bit of me longs for something similarly tool-like and with few pretensions...

    I can't remember the context regarding email in my original post, but the Hub is definitely better than the Google email app. But my complaint about deleting email in the hub still stands. In BB10, one could choose 'select more' and rapidly highlight all the email and hit delete. The best that I could find in the Hub was the custom swipe, right or left, with the option to delete from either the hub or hub and server. Setting up either one as a default action still requires an individual swipe per email that cannot be undone. In BB10, you can at least de-select the message before mass delete, if you made a mistake. This seemingly small difference is quite a time saver. Hopefully, someone at Blackberry will pick up on this time saver and can program the Android Hub to do the same. Meanwhile, I continue to use my Z30 for email management.

    Select an email you wish to delete by long pressing it. Now you are in selection mode. Then select others by short press. Press the trash can. Easy.
