BlackBerry Storm2 9550 (Verizon)

PC Magazine
1 July 2010
  • Conclusion: The second time's the charm for RIM's innovative click-screen smartphone; the Storm2 cures almost all of the original's ills.
  • Pros: Vastly improved touch screen. Wi-Fi. True world phone. Powerful messaging and multimedia support.
  • Cons: Browser doesn't live up to the screen's potential. Touch still feels grafted on at times. Still a bit buggy (though nowhere near as bad as the first Storm).

Aaron's BlackBerry Storm2 9550 review

12 February 2010
  • Summary: The Storm2 excites me because it's genuinely a great product, it's proof that RIM can bridge the divide between "professional" and "multimedia," and perhaps most importantly, it's the company's first legitimate stab at the touchscreen market.

  • Excerpt: Yes, the BlackBerry Storm 2 is a vast improvement over the original BlackBerry Storm smartphone. However, that isn’t saying much because, as befitted its name, the latter handset was pretty much a disaster.

  • Cons: Annoying user interface, Slow Web connection, Below-average camera performance, Heavy, Poor voice quality at caller end

  • Conclusion: Despite the very similar design and software, the RIM BlackBerry Storm2 9550 manages to be a major improvement over the Storm 9530 . This change can be attributed almost wholly to the improvement in RIM’s clickable screen, which now can register multiple inputs properly and due to the four sensor...

The large screen is a rare treat for the mainly QWERTY BlackBerry line and it makes web browsing, video playback and working with...
  • Pros: Large display is easy on the eyes, SurePress much improved.

  • Conclusion: The BlackBerry Storm 2 is a vast improvement on the Storm. It's a better hardware design and better software build that gives you a better experience all around. In the year since the Storm launched however, we've seen plenty of high-end smartphones hit the market in the UK and the US.
  • Pros: Email service, screen quality
  • Cons: The SurePress screen is stiff, no multi-touch, OS looking stale, browser
