    Ummm... way different price points... as I recall on Black Friday (the last time I was phone shopping): Leap $211, Dtek50 $299, Samsung S7 $729. I ended up buying the Dtek50. My girlfriend has the Samsung S7, nice camera but I prefer the grippier dtek and would say that it is the best bang for the buck of the three.

    The above prices, Canadian, unlocked from the factory.

    Well I got my dtek for $259 plus taxes. I don't know where the S7 was at that price (still double the dtek), but the prices I quoted were from the manufacturer.

    I thought we were talking about the dtek60 vs S7 loll

    Is it even comparable the dtek50 and S7? I thought the dtek50 was competing with the Moto G line...

    Can a S7 be rooted?

    A DTEK60 can't.

    The thread did indeed start dtek60 vs. Passport, but with Crackberry being Crackberry, the conversation got side tracked and then BlackBerryPassort started the dtek50 vs s7 comparison even though the two phones are in different price categories, so I replied to it.

    Which is why most people don't want a Blackberry. Most folks don't give a rat's behind about security which is why Blackberry can't sell phones. I personally use a Priv as my primary phone because I DO value the perceived extra layer of security but unfortunately most folks don't think like us.

    Root and virus- two different things, applications like KNOX and DTEK are not preventing anything, besides Google play had their own problems

    A virus without root access is much less threatening. It gains no elevated privileges.

    And in the unlikely event that it does affect a system file, the DTEK app will pick it up immediately through Integrity detection.

    As a BlackBerry fan of 16 years I'd say stay with the S7. You know Samsung will be around in two years from now. BlackBerry on the other hand may not.

    Its "most secure" tagline is irresponsible and arguably inaccurate.

    techradar challenged Samsung and BlackBerry over their Android security claims.

    You're not being accurate either. Even TechRadar acknowledges that it is either BlackBerry or Samsung Nougat with Knox for best security:

    "Unless you're disgustingly wealthy, the real showdown here is between Samsung and BlackBerry and if you're that concerned with smartphone security both sides offer compelling privacy options."

    The plain and simple fact is that NO ONE has achieved a persistent root on a BlackBerry Android device in over a year since it launched.

    The kernel hardening source code is public, and the hardware root of trust is undeniably a feature of the Qualcomm SoC - which BlackBerry takes advantage of.

    There is not a single source that disputes BlackBerry's claims based on proof.

    Samsung and blackberry both provide good security I guess compared to other Android. I like them both and I will get Samsung S8 for sure.

    Knox is a container solution, but is available to consumers as well.

    The BlackBerry EMM solution further enhances Knox.

    BlackBerry Android is unarguably more secure outside of the container.
