Comparison Between DTEK60 – Pixel XL and iPhone 7

While you enjoyed Dave’s great DTEK60 – Priv comparison, I want to show you another comparison, this time with the DTEK60 rivals in the market. I chose the Pixel XL and iPhone 7 and i was amazed that the DTEK60 actually has the best specs around!



As you can see it seems that the Pixel XL and the DTEK60 are almost identical devices. DTEK60 will get the Android 7 soon, and have BlackBerry root of trust and of course the Hub Services apps already installed.

The Pixel XL will cost you $769 and the DTEK60 will be $499, Value for money anyone ?

When we talk about Battery’s the iPhone can’t compete with the DTEK60 and Pixel XL.

All three devices have the fingerprint sensor, but think about how secure it is, unless BlackBerry made it secure.

The iPhone 7 and Pixel XL don’t have any card slot and they come with internal memory of 32/128 (pixel XL) and 32/128/268 (iPhone), The DTEK60 give you more options as with internal of 32 GB and up to 2 TB as we know already.

Now that you can be sure that the DTEK60 is a top device, go and grab one. Tell your friends that if they buy android, BlackBerry Android is the best option for them.

    Great to see how easy it is to do a comparison between the devices, and great to see BlackBerry compete s successfully!

    Now we just ‘hope’ that the press will identify how cool this device is, eh!

    Thanks Roy and really Dtek60 one of best BlackBerry devices in recent years

    Great comparison: no one can claim that the DTEK60 does not have competitive hardware.

    A couple of points:
    1. I think the chipset row has some errors as the DTEK60 should have a Snapdragon 820 and the iPhone 7 should be using Apple’s in-house chip, not a Qualcomm.
    2. The better comparison would be the iPhone 7 Plus because of its screen size. That will further highlight how overpriced the iPhone is.

    Roy, thanks for acknowledging that the sensor is a vulnerability. I wouldn’t want one on my passport and I think Dave said he bypassed it on his detek60. How is BlackBerry securing their sensor that makes it more secure than the Pixel or iphone?

    Why didn’t you compare it with an iPhone 7 plus? The DTEK60 would still win, but, the question is still why… locco_smiley_13
