The display is a 4.7 inch display with a resolution of 720p. At first I was surprised that they would release a phone in 2014 with a 720p display with a quad core CPU under the hood. Just wait until we talk about the battery to understand why the display is the perfect fit.
The Black phone’s camera options include the main shooter at 8-megapixels with a LED flash. The front camera is 5-megapixels.
The speaker on this device is not very loud by at all. If you are in a quiet environment, the speaker will work just fine.
The software is the raison d’etre of this device. The software is what makes it special. The security modifications to the Android Open Source Project’s Android 4.4.2 KitKat is what makes the OS a ‘PrivatOS.’ From PrivatOS to the suite of apps installed, you get more control over your data.
As mentioned the battery is a 2000 mAh removable, and it helps this device last throughout the day on a single charge. The device is configured in such a way that you do not need a big battery to handle the hardware.
The quad core CPU is an NVidia T4i processor clocked at 2 GHz and 1GB of RAM help this device run all the apps that you need and most that you want. It would have been nice to have 2GB of RAM on to handle the services that you need to keep running in the background. For example, the phone and messaging apps.
The BP1 comes with the suite of applications listed below:
- Silent Circle Apps
- Silent Phone (A Secure VOIP Phone)
- Silent Text (A Secure PGP messaging)
- Silent Contacts (A Secure Contact manager for the other Silent Circle apps)
- Blackphone-built OS Integrated Apps
- Blackphone Firewall
- Blackphone Activation Wizard (for setting up the device with Silent Circle apps)
- Blackphone Remote Wipe
- 3rd-party Apps
- Disconnect Secure Wireless (A VPN wireless connection)
- SpiderOak Blackphone Edition (A Secure Online Storage Option)
- Kismet Smart Wi-Fi Manager (Location based WiFi Connection Manager)
