Blackberry Torch 9860 – great hardware tarnished by an outdated OS and severe lack of apps

22 August 2011
  • Conclusion: If your company is giving this to you for free, consider yourself lucky, but if you have the choice, a few weeks with the new Blackberry OS will definitely make you switch back to an iPhone or Android smartphone. Kudos to RIM for trying, but the new device doesn’t make up for the outdated software that they stuffed it with.

Blackberry Torch 9800 vs HTC Sensation – comparing the flagships from RIM and HTC

12 July 2011
  • Conclusion: Overall, I’m not impressed with the Blackberry Torch 9800, a flagship smartphone, and I think that you have to be a real diehard fan of RIM to choose it over the Sensation and Android (if you have a choice, of course – the latter can do everything a business/corporate user needs to do, while also having a lot of other features and options.

BlackBerry Torch 9800 Review: In Depth

13 February 2011
  • Conclusion: The phone market is changing quickly and unsurpsingly the Torch 600Mhz processor feels slow next to the dual-core LG Optimus 2X and the 1Ghz Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc. Although we should point out that for browsing, typing and emailing – which are the main reasons people buy a Blackberry - it is perfectly adequate. Blackberry's core users will really like the Torch.

BlackBerry Torch Review

12 February 2011
  • Excerpt: Quote from review: "Whether or not you believe the new BlackBerry Torch 9800 from AT&T is as revolutionary as RIM's TV ads imply, depends on what side of the smartphone divide you're on. If you're a current BlackBerry user, you'll find the Torch a quantum improvement over RIM's last touch-screen attempt, the Storm, and an amusing alternative to BlackBerry's suddenly quaint non-touch interface.

BlackBerry Torch Review

12 February 2011
  • Excerpt: RIM's all new BlackBerry Torch 9800 for AT&T capitalizes on BlackBerry's historical strength by including awesome keyboard and killer email while featuring a plethora of new features including a proper touchscreen, upgraded camera and the highly anticipated BlackBerry 6 operating system . It will be available August 12th for $199.99 after contract. You thought sliders were played out? Well think again.
  • Pros: vertical slider form factor suits the BlackBerry experience, proper, full physical keyboard is easy to type on, solid build quality - feels like a quality Tool, 5 megapixel camera delivers great photos, BlackBerry 6 is a big step up all around (, You can now enjoy web browsing on a BlackBerry with the new WebKit rendering!, Universal Search fundamentally changes the way you navigate your BlackBerry, The
  • Cons: 360 x 480 display is ok, but a higher resolution display would really have taken the Torch 9800 to another level, 624MHz processor delivers ok performance, but a faster processor would help the Torch power through tasks like web browsing even faster, Lack of OpenGL support for 3D Graphics is disappointing, 640 x 480 video recording resolution is disappointing (especially considering how much better the camera now is for taking photos)

BlackBerry Torch 9800 Review

  • Excerpt: When the arrival of the BlackBerry Torch 9800 came knocking, I was pretty much psyched to see if this snazzy new BlackBerry with its Palm...
  • Pros: Solid construction. Staple Blackberry features like keyboard, email, call quality, and battery life are still intact. Found the option of having a tangible keyboard and onscreen one extremely useful as well as sanity pleasing. OS 6 is intuitive to use with its new Homescreen design, universal inbox, and universal search, as well as its social media enhancements. WiFi Music Sync will even impress iPhone enthusiasts.
  • Cons: Poor camera and video quality. Display (sigh) is old school. Device tends to lag at times when processing websites or switching in between tasks.

9 February 2011
  • Conclusion: The BlackBerry Torch is the very model of a modern messaging smartphone, although it doesn't beat the iPhone or Android on media and games.
  • Pros: Looks and feels good. Lots of new features. Integrates social-networking well.
  • Cons: Browser still slower than iPhone 4. Fewer games and apps than iOS or Android. Poor Microsoft Exchange integration for consumers.

BlackBerry Torch Review

8 February 2011
  • Excerpt: It’s been a while since I’ve used a BlackBerry. My first experience was with the BlackBerry 8820 a few years ago. Today, we’ve got the new BlackBerry Torch 9800 to review, which RIM calls its best BlackBerry phone ever. It’s the first device with the new BlackBerry 6 operating system, and the software design is much better than it has been in the past — but is that enough, and are the differences significant?
  • Pros: + Connects to BlackBerry Servers
  • Cons: - No direct Exchange ActiveSync support
