    Dan thanks for a great video. I've been using the DTEK60 since February but I had no idea about the features you showed on here.

    Quick question – On my Z30 I have 15 emails/SMS/BBM/whatever showing at a time in the hub.  I see in the video above there's about 6 showing with a ridiculous amount of whitespace between.  Is there any way to reduce this whitespace to get 15 messages to display in the list?

    Miss my z10 and bb10. I think the Detek 60 is my next purchase.
    I'm just wondering, how does the headphone output measure up to some of the other flagship devices ??

    Very helpful, Dan. How do you change the three choices for the 'home' button? Where you have Hub, device search and settings?

    I don't know if society is stupid or BlackBerry marketing is that bad. Such a shame this phone isn't in any fricking carrier store!

    had my dtek60 for about 2 weeks now and I often look at comparison videos. I was shocked to see TCL 950 is the exact same phone!!!

    Hi Patel, could you find out if DT60 will support WhatsApp, after its being removed from other BlackBerry OS by the end of the year?

    Terrific review. I'm really liking the BB DTEK60. Reminds me of cyanogenmod, to a certain extent. The tile option for the recent apps lists, is a nice touch.

    Only questions I have are does long pressing on the recent apps button bring up the settings menu, & will the DTEK60 be getting Android 7.0 anytime soon…?

    The Blackberry home button swipe is a nice development of the old Android 5 Google Now home button swipe. (I think that was even a Google API.) But as the swipe was replaced with Google Now on tap on stock Android – can you set up Now on tap as one of the swipes on the DTEK 60? I use this a lot.

    Hey man, peeerfect video! Very helpful. Pixel and moreso DTEK60 are the two phones I'd consider if I already had to replace my beloved, timelessly designed, never lagging Xperia Z3 (new Sonys don't aim to live up to this). I love optimizing my homescreen ever and ever.

    love your video's Daniel, they are so informative.  in your next video on the DTEK60 can you advise on call quality please, because believe it or not, I use my phone as a phone !  no one seems to mention call quality anymore.  keep up the good work and looking forward to your next video

    Comparing a $399 Alcatel 4S to a Pixel is asinine. Not even close and all this what Blackberry has done nonsense is equally silly. Its an midrange Android phone. It mines your data the same way all androids do . With lines like "Blackberrys convenience key is amazing" is laughable as this is an alcatel button and Blackberry had nothing to do with it. Blackberry has changed nothing in the Android OS and in fact is not allowed to or has the expertise to do so, The additions (few) are little skins pretending to be Blackberry innovation. Also the hub nonsense is easily outdone by the notification bar which holds all new emails, facebooks, telephone calls etc….everything until you wish to delete them. It is easily accessed by a swipe down and has no redundancies. How truly embarrassing that Blackberry is calling this their phone.
