vicdansız apps və texnologiya şirkəti izleme bir dünyada, Blackphone 2 yol almadan xüsusi şəxsi məlumat saxlamaq kömək etmək üçün vəd.

təhlükəsizlik və gizlilik şirkət Silent Circle tərəfindən Blackphone ikinci nəşr Kullanışlılık bir addım qədər və təəccüblü qurmaq üçün asan və istifadə, hətta gizlilik novices üçün.

Heç bir şey unhackable edir, əlbəttə, və bu hücum necə möhkəm test bu mərhələdə mümkün deyildi.

Blackphone 2 monolit style onun məqsədi uyğun. Çöldən bu yaxşı bir araya generic qara sal kimi görünür. Ön və arxa şüşə var, Tərəflər plastik dairəvi.

Bu yalnız bir ümumi cihaz deyil ki, yalnız işarə boz-on-qara yazısı ilə "xüsusi dizayn" "Blackphone" sözləri ilə geri və kiçik çətinliklə görünən Silent Circle logo.

Keçirilməsi olduqca rahat, və digər şüşə smartfon kimi sürüşkən deyil, lakin bir maqnit kimi barmaq qədər seçer. 5.5in 1080p LCD ekran əsaslı parlaq və parlaq edir. Bu OnePlus istifadə ki, oxşar keyfiyyətli 2, məsələn, lakin kifayət qədər ki, Gömme ilə paralel Nexus 6P və ya Galaxy S6 Edge +.

telefon qalın 7.9mm edir, olan bugünkü smartfonlar üçün orta edir və yaxşı inşa hiss. Bu sizin əlinizdədir təzyiqi altında bir az flexes, hansı geri cibində qoyun və aşağı oturmaq üçün yəqin ki, yaxşı deməkdir.

Bir gün batareya

Blackphone 2 Qualcomm nin orta mənzilli Snapdragon var 615 prosessor, olan telefon nəzərdə tutulan auditoriya üçün kifayət qədər əlbəttə güclü. Bu tez hiss, pulsuz qalmaq və bir məsələ olmadan çoklu vasitəsilə chewed.

Yalnız qrafik intensiv oyun mübarizə edə bilər oynamaq üçün çalışırıq, ki, əmin deyiləm sonra etdiyiniz nə varsa ancaq niyə bir Blackphone nəzərə edirsinizsə.

Hesab edirəm ki, ola bilər kimi Wi-Fi qəbul kimi yaxşı deyil idi ki, tapılmadı, compared to similar devices, but 4G reception was excellent, as was call quality.

The smartphone lasted just under 24 hours per charge, with reasonably heavy use and lots of push emails and notifications. You will need to charge it once a day, but it should see you till you get home even if you go out for the night.

Ümumi, you don’t feel like you’ve compromised anything in the name of buying a “secure” phone.

Lollipop on the surface

Silence Circle built Silent OS on top of Google Android 5.1.1 Şirni, which has only just been replaced with versiya 6 Zefir.

Beyond the interesting boot animation, it looks and behaves like stock Android. You have access to all the Google apps and to the Play Store to download third-party apps with no real restrictions.

The only additions really visible to the untrained eye are a Security Center icon, the Silent Store and Silent Phone apps, which is a good thing as anyone who is familiar with Android will be right at home.

The stock Android-apparence masks the hidden layers of security and privacy built into the phone.

The Security Center app walks the user through it, but essentially you have granular control over not only the personal data that apps can access, but also the hardware and services provided by the phone.

Don’t want an app having access to location data or the internet? No problem. It operates in a similar manner to the new permissions system implemented by Google in Zefir and made famous by Cyanogen OS.

Secure spaces

The per-app control is only one level. Blackphone 2 has what it calls “spaces”. Each space is like a separate user profile within which restrictions can be made on a system level. Each space cannot talk to another, ensuring what you put in it stays in it. You can have, məsələn, a space for your work email, contacts, calendar and documents that is fenced off from the other parts of the phone.

If you want to use an app but you think it might be risky, you can put it in a locked down space so that if it does try and do terrible things it’s isolated from the rest of your data.

Getting to each space is simple. You can either switch spaces straight from the lockscreen with different codes or use the switcher in the notification shade. The level of security you give each space can be changed, including the ability to lockdown every other space when one particular one is active.

Companies can define a space and govern rules about it, which means you can blend personal and work on the same phone without compromising data security. Several other devices, including BlackBerrys can do something similar.

As easy or as difficult to use as you chose

Every setting and configuration sounds complicated, but the Security Center can guide users through it. With enough patience you can work everything out within 30 dəqiqə.

It means that you can make the phone as easy or as difficult to use as your security requirements warrant. You can randomise the pin pad on the lockscreen, which makes it much harder for someone to snoop over your shoulder at you passcode, but also makes it harder to unlock the phone.

Other things worth noting are automatic switching on or off of Wi-Fi based on location, the promise of rapid updates to the operating system directly from Silent Circle to make sure security bugs are patched as quickly as possible, and device encryption that is on by default.

Silent Phone and Store

In additions to the modifications behind the scenes made to Android, Silent Circle offers encrypted voice calling and messaging through its Silent Phone app.

It encrypts phone calls and messages only between Silent Phone users, but Silent Phone is available on both iOS and Android, which means it’s not just Blackphone users you can call.

It requires a subscription on-top of your mobile phone contract, but will typically be bundled with a purchase of the Blackphone. Given the number of Silent Phone users is small, it’s of limited utility in general life, but if a business or group was to buy wholesale into the Blackphone they could chat without fear of being snooped on.

You can call non-Silent Phone users, which secures the phone call until it needs to connect to a traditional phone network, which is not as secure but allows users to avoid being snooped from the point of the call, if for instance you were calling across an insecure internet connection.

The Silent Store also offers apps that have been vetted by Silent Circle to be snooping free. The small selection of apps include Firefox, Keeper, Orbot: Proxy with Tor and Ghostery Privacy Browser, all downloadable with Silent Circle’s seal of approval.

Kamera

The 13-megapixel camera is nothing to shout about. It produces average photos in good lighting, but washed out, dull images when shooting indoors under artificial light.

The five-megapixel front-facing camera is fixed focus and equally anaemic.

Qiymət

Blackphone 2 is available for £659 without a mobile phone contract in the UK, but including 100 minutes of Silent Phone subscription for a year.

Müqayisə üçün, BlackBerry’s Priv Android phone costs £559 and offers similar work-private life segregation.

Hökm

Blackphone 2 promises to be the most secure Android smartphone available.

Bu ən qabaqcıl var, Onun kameralar zəif və dizayn olduqca düz deyil, lakin onun proqram və xidmətlərin yalnız necə istifadə oluna təəccüb doğurur. Blackphone 2 Android bests bit saxlayır və gizlilik yönümlü xidmətlərin bir çox kimi yol almaq deyil etmək.

You can make your life as easy or as difficult as you want, with varying levels of security. While the Blackphone 2 isn’t the answer to everyone’s prayers, for the paranoid or important amongst us, it might be the least painful tool for the job.

Pros: security without an overburden of difficulty, spaces, normal Android experience, encrypted phone calls, tez performance, promise of rapid security updates

Cons: bland design, weak cameras, bahalı, weaker than expected Wi-Fi connectivity
