Excerpt: I've never seen a camera on a phone as good as this one, despite it's 2MP, but the quality is astonishing. The build quality is very good but the material of the front door of the phone will get damaged in time.
"Brilliant phone for everyday use like calling & texting"
13 August 2012
Pros: Gorgeous looking phone with a solid feel in weight. Awesome keyboard (Very fun to type) Good speakerphone Great user interface(calls/texts/email all look wonderful) Battery life (With the newest software update) 32 GB expandable memory + 8GB built in
Cons: SD card not removeable without the battery removed first Touch screen can sometimes be non responsive due to the small screen size
Excerpt: love this phone and i would reccomend it to anyone who texts/emails a lot because the keyboard is amazing!! It does lag but not to the point that it becomes a huge nuisance and also you have to be careful with the battery, if you have a lot of apps running the battery will drain insanely fast!!
Pros: amazing keyboard, emails are effortless, durable phone, excellent call quality, always have reception, excellent video quality, great UI, good for multi-tasking
Cons: no front facing camera, no auto-focus on camera, image quality is not very good, can lag, battery can drain quickly if not careful, not a lot of selection in app world
"The Bold 9900 4G: An Excellent Communication Tool"
17 June 2012
Pros: The best keyboard ever / still the best messaging platform going / superior call quality / ease of use / smooth operation / keyboard shortcuts, optical trackpad, and touchscreen...getting to where you want to go on this device is fast and efficient.
Cons: Only one covenience key now / lack of auto-focus on the 9900's camera has hurt picture quality.
Summary: again, disregard previous review, which is nonsense. why would you take 2 eggs off because of the sound quality of the phone, when the phone was improved better than any other BB's in all senses (except app memory storage)
Pros: disregard previous review. This phone sounds fantastic, i even gave my Zune player to my girlfriend because this phone sounded way better than my Zune and does the job better than my zune. second thing, this is how all the BB should've been, fast and reliable. i can do way more stuff than i used to do
Cons: this is con is not worth taking an egg off. The problem is the memory, i wonder why did RIM made the Bold 9650 with more App memory than this, i remember i used to have a lot of memory with my old bold (but i couldn't use it anyways because the phone is too slow -compared to this one-)
Summary: "I am in college right now and I have to say for all practical purposes this is the best phone currently on the market!! Hands down! It's REALLY fast, as fast(actually maybe faster) than an iPhone and the other Android handsets despite them sporting dual-core chips. And to hold it feels like holding a piece of jewellery in hand. Go Blackberry still bold, still premium, still the best and most quality brand out there, for sure.
Summary: Delivery to destination only a matter of days - great service. Setting up the mail accounts was very simple, compared to my previous BlackBerry. Within 5 minutes I was up & running. This phone is by far the best BBerry I have ever had. The combination of a touch screen and the QWERTY key board make it a very userfriendly phone. The only off-set is reduced battery life compared to my previous BBerry, due to the touch screen.
