    Anyone know about the quality of either the rear 21MP or front facing 8MP cameras on the DTEK60?

    The 18MP rear camera on the BlackBerry Priv is amazing (Schneider-Kreuznach lens), but the 2MP "Selfie" caméra is poor.

    Just wondering how good the DTEK60 cameras might be....

    Well, it depends on who gives you the insight on that. Namely, I've seen comments from people who have used it for a few minutes and decided it is bad and, thus, returned it for an S7. I think you need to be the judge of that after using it for a few days the way you intend to use it.

    The rear camera on the priv is far from amazing. At 18 megapixels it's not even close to the 12 megapixels on iPhone and Samsung devices. Proves that it has nothing to do with megapixels anymore. Plus the shutter time to take a picture is far too slow.

    I get compliments on my images and videos over snapchat all the time.

    So I would have to completely disagree with you

    Edit: I have a Priv

    I completely disagree as well comparing photos at same time taken with iPhone 6s.
    Maybe iPhone 6s is a touch better in low light but PRIV and DTEK60 are better in all other light.

    It never did have anything to do with pixels, it's all about the sensors.

    Exactly! Me too! Every time I post a photo from my Priv I get a lot of compliments! I agree that it's not just the pixel count; it's also the quality of lens and the software! That's why I ask about the 21MP caméra on the DTEK60!

    OK, good to know! I have the Priv, and it takes great photos!

    Are the DTEK60 21MP and 8MP cameras on the DTEK60 better than the Priv?

    I love the Priv Form factor but if it weren't for the average front facing camera I probably would have got it by now - The camera/performance on a smartphone is now a big decider for me.

    The Dtek60 seems to be a step up and I hope to check out images and opinions over the next couple of months before I make a decision.

    My thoughts exactly! The 18MP camera on my Priv is great, but the 2MP "Selfie" caméra is poor. Consumers are now looking for superior caméra quality on hand held devices. I hope the DTEK60 is a step up!
