    Some more pics of the actual TCL 950. This actually looks really sexy. This pic has the gold bezel. Hope they do a Gold bezel, it looks nice.

    Looks promising, but I hate the fact the camera lense sticks out from the back, it seems all OEM's are doing this now.
    Is DTEK60 another Alcatel with a BlackBerry Security Feature??-tcl-950-gold-bezel.jpg

    Here is the link to TCL 950 review on YouTube. You can get a better look at it.

    The camera bump has to be there if you want a good camera. A good camera, unlike what lot's of smartphone people think is not about how many megapixels it has, it's how big the sensor is, that's the best indicator of picture quality. Not only in smartphones but on professional cameras too. Bigger sensor, better performance.

    To have a bigger sensor, you need a bigger distance between the lens and the sensor, that's why today's smartphones have the camera bump. That's why Priv's selfie camera is rubish, it has to be packed so tight, can't have a big sensor

    Well, technically, it's possible to have a large sensor, to remove the camera bump... and have out-of-focus photos... or have most of the sensor unused. But really, all the OEM's like the design aspect of having the bump. The bigger the bump, the more money people will pay.

    I wouldn't say they like the bump, Galaxy S7 reduced the bump to the S6.

    Actually, you are wrong. TCL is the parent company. They release phones under the Alcatel brand as well as TCL communications, however the reference designs are indeed by TCL.

    For an example, think of TCL as Hyundai (parent company) and Alcatel is their version of Kia. Both companies release cars, most of the time they use the same platform and modify them, but they are indeed from the same company just with slight differences.

    Rebranding is so common - I don't think most people know or care where a product is made or who actually made it. The new Toyota Yaris sedan is a rebranded Mazda !

    I take that back - people DO care, but are powerless to do anything about it.

    They "reduced" the bump by making the rest of the phone thicker.

    The phone is not manufactured by BlackBerry! Is NOT a true BlackBerry. BB10 ones are!

    I guess the PRIV isn't a BlackBerry either?

    The Passport, Z30 and Z10 were not manufactured by BlackBerry either. So say the boxes in which they came. Oops....

    I guess this phone goes either way... Isn't this DTEK60? Man, it's sad. BB should really stop "making" phones (unless it's something unique like Passport or Mercury) and team up with big names like Samsung, LG, Motorola and offer "Blackberry" Edition. Pure android with BB launcher and apps for $50 more. That's it.

    I am trying to understand here, what would the difference be if they were to team up with Samsung, LG, Motorola? I am thinking it would be the same thing, the only difference would be the name of the "partner".


    Personally, I would have loved for BlackBerry to continue making handsets, they have served me well and most of the time their build quality was quite good.

    Having stated the above, I understand the predicament the company finds itself in and this path may or may not work out but they would have tried.

    I still, however, do not like the way Chen handled the handset division, to me, he was clueless on that front.
