    Got a Black keyone and love it, but also 'rock' a second device. Found a Dtek 50 on eglobal. For 196 euros brand new.
    Pretty good right? Won't complain about which version of Android I'm on or not being an S8.

    Probably pass on my Samsung galaxy J7 to my son and use the dtek as my backup device till something new and irresistible from BBM comes out.

    Anyway, Hola de Barcelona to all on this thread

    I read this as he is OK with Marshmallow and is not chasing specs.

    I bought my daughter a dtek50 some month ago as amazon warehouse deal for 135 euro! Was a great deal. Still great phone. Also got one for my best friend whom upgraded from a z10 and he is very happy with it!

    Missed that deal! Damn! UK? "Mad" in the British meaning of crazy! Getting tired of Samsung J7, typing is awful and I hate the icono... Time for a change

    Honestly not a bad phone for Android. My only gripe is battery life, manufacturers should know better and use bigger batteries these days. I installed Nova prime as launcher and customized like crazy and now my swipe gestures are close to bb10

    Ive noticed in a vídeo that it has a convenience key and productivity tab, which is great. Looking forward to getting it

    Same here. Rocking the Nova launcher and the gestures. Dtek50 is my backup device. Using it now and then for apps. No issues. Don't care about it stuck on Marshmallow..Yeah, the battery sucks compared to other phones with similar specs but it still gives me a full day of productive use.

    So. It arrived today. Thanks to Conite's expert Advice I've been able to update it. Just personalising it now. And getting it ready to become my second phone, substituting my Samsung J7.

    First impressions : low end phone, noticeably lower than the key one but perfect for the price, 196 euros. It's Very light and easy to hold , so very portable. The non scratch screen is nice to the touch but not as sensitive as I'd like to move screens or icons.
    All in all a good back up phone that would be OK as a first one depending on use. I'm planning on keeping it a year so not bothered about no updates to system.

    It's a nice phone. I've had mine for well over a year and more than happy with it. Just can't put my passport down ;-)

    I've just changed to the Dtek 50 as my second phone with all the apps configured. I find the BlackBerry keyboard MUCH better than the Samsung. Anyway, let's see how long I can keep going

    Upgraded from Z10 to the 50 a couple months ago. I still prefer the Z10 and BB10 but as far as Android goes its better than most. i was really. happy it came with the BB keyboard. For $275 CAN BNIB it will do me just fine.
