Bullitt Group is the company responsible for helping big companies tap into the gadgets market by licencing their brands and manufacturing specialised products for them. For instance, the company partnered with Caterpillar earlier this year to bring out the Cat S60 (Review) rugged smartphone for adventure seekers and engineers. It's also planning a smartphone with Land Rover, which is in the works.
The Kodak Ektra was designed by Bullitt Group to look like classic film cameras. This is reflected in the shape and materials used for the chassis. It is on the thicker side but thankfully, it’s pretty light. The 5-inch display has a full-HD resolution but the Gorilla Glass and display aren’t bonded, which doesn’t feel modern. App and system performance is good thanks to the deca-core Helio X20 SoC and 3GB of RAM. Games run smoothly but the phone heats up quickly. This is single-SIM phone which might disappoint some, but you can use a microSD card of up to 128GB. Battery life isn’t great. The 21-megapixel rear camera captures decently detailed shots in good light and focus is quick, but the supposed 6-axis OIS doesn’t work for videos. The front camera is pretty average too.
