HELP...thanks!

Hello everyone, I am using a BlackBerry Torch 9800 for a while now and I would like to share my opinions about the smartphone.

Advantages:

1. Larger screen compared to other BB devices like Bold 9700.

2. Comes with a QWERTY and it makes life a lot easier.

3. BlackBerry OS 6.0 has its own advantages like the new home screen. Search capabilities.

4. 5.0 megapixel camera with continuous focus is really more than enough for a bussiness phone

5. Very good audio output through headphones. I tested with my BOSE tripod in ear headphones and the sound quality is as good as Apple iPod.

6. Video player is sharp and bright. Handles high quality videos really well.

7. User interface is very fast. Thanks to 624MHz processor. Application switching and multitasking is a joy

8. At the end of the day, it's a BlackBerry

Disadvantages:

1. Touch screen sensitivity is really good but not as good as an Aplle iPhone/iPod touch

2. Not all apps will work in every country. So before you buy a BB Torch make sure your service provider supports BBM, enterprise email service, App world etc.

3. BlackBerry doesn't recognize or connects to ad-hoc wi-fi networks. So if anyone has a laptop set up as a wi-fi hotspot and wants to connect his BB, he has to use a software named Connectify and he must have a laptop with Windows 7 operating system.

4. Built in app for MS office let's you open/edit MS word/excel/powerpoint file but you won't be able to use premuim features. You can't even create a new file.

5. No PDF reader provided unless you purchase the whole documents to go app. I can provide you the registration key and activation key for the Documents to Go app (see me contact email below)

6. The default browser works well. But it's a bit slow when it comes to loading large pages. I would recommend using opera mini. Works really fast.

Final words:

BlackBerry Torch is a great smartphone with the usual BlackBerry services. But this phone also combines a touch screen and a QWERTY and various other media functionalities. It's a perfect phone for a business user who likes to stay connected with the internet and also wants to take a snapshot while he's travelling. It's like an Internet cafe with a movie theater inside. Finally, I would love to help whoever needs any kind of support regarding this or anyother cell phone. Please contact me (notijaz@yahoo.com), you can also visit my profile on www.twitter.com/beck723
Hope my opinions help you in choosing the right phone.

Thank you

agirl, 18 May 2011does it provide you video call ?No.

  • Mike

Had a Bold 9700 in the past and the battery would last around 5 days with low to moderate use (daily a few calls (5/10), 20 texts and the same for emails, 20 minutes browsing, )

What sort of time can I expect from this phone with the same usage???

Thanks
