Design and Display

The Blackberry Evolve looks like a smartphone from before and it is so because it maintains a similar kind of build Blackberry used years ago. There is a matte finish at the back and the smartphone is predominantly made of polycarbonate materials. In fact, the smartphone looks a bit inferior to other smartphones in its price segment. It has a central vertically arranged dual camera with a flash beside it and a fingerprint scanner directly below.

Space for visual on the smartphone extends to 5.99-inches of the smartphone surface and not with the trending bezel slimming either. Although, it is an LCD display contrast on the smartphone is fair enough with a decent colour accuracy.  The pixel density is 402 ppi and with a resolution of 1080 X 2160 pixels.

Battery and Camera

The battery size on the smartphone is ample which means a till the ending the day use. An intense use of the phone can cut that down dramatically due to the fact that how long the 4, 000mAh battery will last is subject to use. It also features Quick Charge 3.0 to refill your battery fast than the conventional charging method.

You could count on the Blackberry Evolve to take pretty good pictures when lighting is favourable but not so much when it is otherwise. The duo at the back is a pair of 13MP cameras while the one positioned at the front is a 16MP selfie camera.

Blackberry offers the Android 8.1 Oreo on the smartphone with some useful addition by them.
