The technology for the Blackberry Storm just wan't ready yet.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I was so excited to get my BlackBerry Storm and I was mostly satisfied with it.However I beleive in a race to compeat with the Iphone BlackBerry launched their touch screen too early before their technology was really ready to support such a phone. It freezes all the time and sometimes will push buttons I am not pushing on the other side of the phone. My advice is to get the Storm2 as I hear they have worked out a lot of the bugs from the orriginal.
Excerpt: I hated the storm. Its a hardy phone, and better than most. But as time goes by, everything lags. everything. sometimes the screen freezes and i have to take the battery out and rerun irt again. Picture quality is amazing. I also liked the tpouch screen because it clicked so it was easy to get used to. .. but thats it.
Excerpt: I thought the Blackberry storm was all i needed,but after recieving it,i was dissapointed.The touch screen is sensitive and lags alot.The apps are awesome but could use some free apps instead of having to pay for all or them.The call quality is o.k but could be better.So iam looking for a new cell phone.I will be reading alot of reviews.
Excerpt: I got my blackberry storm 9530 about 8 months ago. It was my first smart phone and blackberry. I really like having my blackberry because i get my emails directly on the phone, along with email alerts, and its the same thing with facebook and whatever else you use. it has twitter too but i rarely use that. I like the size of the screen a lot, but wish i could have an actual keyboard along with the large screen.
Excerpt: I upgraded to the Storm a few months ago. It is a great smart phone for what I want to do with it. It is very easy to use. It came with an 8 gig card so I have plenty of space to store pictures and videos. The camera feature is outstanding. I use it more than I use my digital camera. It even comes with flash. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Excerpt: A bit on the bulky side, and randomly freezes, there is no ease of switching to a different screen while still making calls, the screen goes black, not a great battery life. There are pros to it like apps and what-not, but since having the iphone the day it came out I am still more attatched to it. Though, my blackberry is touch screen the screen clicks and gets stuck, it is just not as easily navigatable as the Iphone.
Excerpt: There is no doubt in my mind that the Storm is quite an advancement over the older model Blackberries; however, I find the keyboard attrocious and generally cumbersome to operate. Simply put, the physical keyboard with its definite tactile presence is superior. In fact, when compared to the design of the dreadful iPhone, I have to admit that even the iPhone wins out to the Storm. This is of course a matter of preference.
Excerpt: I bought a Blackberry Storm from eBay and tested it out for a few weeks to see if I liked it. While this was not my first Blackberry, it took a little getting used to because it was the first touch-screen Blackberry which changed the phone pretty drastically. I have always loved BlackBerrys but the Storm did not functional as well as I would have liked. The interface is really gorgeous and the buttons are huge and easy to hit with your fingers.
Excerpt: Just wanted to start out by saying that I am not the most tech saavy woman. I have had the Blackberry storm for about about nine months and to be honest I am still getting used to it. I love certain aspects of it such as the big screen which is 3.25", the hi resolution screen (meaning the images on the screen are great), the camera takes pretty good pictures and the flash can help you find a needle in the dark. Also, I love the internet browsing and GPS.
Excerpt: The blackberry storm was an awesome phone when I first got it during christmas, awesome acessories, apps, pictures, camera, I thought it was one of the best phones Id ever had....untill, after about a year of owning my blackberry storm, it dies for no apparent reason. I charged it and then my button for the SMS disappeared and no matter where in my phone I looked for it, I could not find it however, it seemed I was still recieving text messages.
