I am in the process of putting the BlackBerry DTEK50 smartphone through its paces. The BlackBerry DTEK50 is available from Clove Technology and costs £264 and includes a free power bank.
The BlackBerry DTEK50 has been a joy to use, but I will cover all aspects of the phone off in my full review shortly.
In the meantime, I wanted to show you what the camera can achieve. The rear camera is 13mp, with a dual tone LED flash, phase detect auto focus (PDAF), fast focus lock, HDR, 6-element f2.0 lens, 4x digital zoom, continuous & touch to focus, face detection, image stabilisation, panorama, burst, live filters, multi-frame low light enhancement and 1080p HD video recording at 30 fps.
The front camera is 8mp, 8 f2.2, 1.125um pixel size, 84° wide angle/field of view lens, image & video stabilisation, 1080p HD video recording at 30 fps, selfie flash and a wide selfie mode.
Let’s not beat around the bush. This is the best budget/mid range camera I have tested to date. It took great photos consistently and has a very clever screen that is 100% perfect in the sun for readability even with sunglasses. More of this in my main review.
All the original photos are in a special album on my flickr account – Click HERE.
All the shots below are unedited unless I mention otherwise, and on full auto.
First up is sunrise on Dartmoor. This shot made Flickr Explore. Superb photo.
A cropped photo, but otherwise unedited of George. Great detail.
Some local cows grazing on Dartmoor. Good colours.
Foggintor Quarry. The DTEK50 did a fab job of this. Realistic colours.
My three dogs were running, but the DTEK50 did a good job capturing them. There is an option in the settings to focus before each shot before taking the photo.
The DTEK50 has manual controls. I used these to take this shot.
Now the below shot has been edited in snapseed using the HDR scape filter to show you what is possible. I love this version.
If you look at my flickr album, there are 30 photos from the DTEK50 including the ones above. What I have found is the phone has consistently taken decent photos, way better than I expected. The front camera also takes good photos.
I will cover more off in my main review. If you have any questions, please let me know in the comments.
