Android version and market relevance

In August 2018 Blackberry company introduced its new smartphone BlackBerry Evolve. This is a new model with support for two SIM cards, which is running on 8.1 Oreo.

If you think that for today such an android smartphone on the version 8.1 Oreo already outdated, then we advise you to look DROID-smartphones in our directory, where we collected a list of devices on the latest version of Android.

Screen, body and battery

Moderately large 5.99-inch screen, made by technology IPS LCD installed in the smartphone BlackBerry Evolve.

The larger the screen, the larger the case. But in addition to the width and height of the hull, its thickness is important. At BlackBerry Evolve the thickness of the case is 8.4 mm, which turns out to be very thick. Today, there are many smartphones with a slim body.

The battery and the operating time also depend on the screen size. At BlackBerry Evolve installed battery for 4 000 mAh, and this is a fairly good reserve of capacity, which is exactly enough for you for one day with average usage.

Main camera and selfie camera

The smartphone BlackBerry Evolve has two cameras: main camera (13 MP with a regular lens + 13 MP B/W) and front-camera (16 MP Wide). If you look at the quality of the photo of the main camera, then it will be medium-quality photos and videos.

In addition, the main camera has a feature, namely an additional module. It is better to judge about the advantages and disadvantages of several lenses in one smartphone, as well as about the possibilities of software image enhancement, by real photos and videos taken with such a camera. Therefore, be sure to look at all the photos of the BlackBerry Evolve on this page in order to draw your conclusion on whether this is a good camera or not.

In this smartphone, the front camera is located as usual at the top of the screen, like in 99.9% of other models. We have collected smartphones with pop-up front camera in the catalog that may seem much more interesting to you. In these models, there are practically no frames around the screen, because the front camera is located inside the case and does not take up space above the screen. The selfie camera only pops up when you activate the front camera mode. Take a photo or video, exit the Camera application. And after that, the socket with the front camera drives into the body. Real engineering magic!

Processor and Internal Memory

The speed of the smartphone affects not only the optimized software (the newer Android, the better), but also the characteristics of the hardware: the processor and the amount of RAM. BlackBerry Evolve has 8-core Snapdragon 450. RAM here with size 4 GB.

The amount of built-in memory in the smartphone is 64 GB and there are no other options to choose from. And if there was not enough internal memory, then you can save the necessary data on the memory card microSDXC .

Price for BlackBerry Evolve: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone BlackBerry Evolve got into our price segment “Middle class smartphones from $300 to $400” and began to be sold in October 2018 at a price of $300. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. BlackBerry Evolve is a very smart smartphone with a large screen and a cool main camera, and the front camera at it turned out simply smart. And to all this we add that the battery is of high capacity.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.
