BlackBerry Torch 9800

CNET
19 April 2014
  • Summary: There's not much that the BlackBerry Torch 9800 can't do, but it doesn't make it easy. Pricey, chunky, and packed with features, this is a smart phone whose function beats form -- and fun.
  • Cons: Feels large and heavy; touchscreen isn't responsive; comparatively low-res screen; complicated to use.

REVIEW: BlackBerry Torch 9800 smartphone

Mobile Magazine
12 August 2013
  • Conclusion: When I read that the AT&T version of the BlackBerry Torch 9800 was getting less than favorable reviews, I wasn’t all that surprised. RIM has come up short in several areas, but it manages to survive because of its increased security and close corporate contacts. For my part, I can see how the Torch has its share of shortcomings — like the low resolution display — but it’s still a very solid smartphone.

A brief look at the Blackberry Torch 9800

13 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Hello everyone, I have been using a BlackBerry Torch 9800 for a while now and I will like to share my opinions about the smartphone. 1. Larger screen compared to other BB devices like Bold 9700. 2. Comes with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard 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.

Blackberry Torch 9860 – great hardware tarnished by an outdated OS and severe lack of apps

Gadgetmania
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 Kudos to RIM for trying, but the new device doesn’t make up for the outdated software that they stuffed it with.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

Gadgetmania
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 Review

CrackBerry.com
3 March 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 Review

ubergizmo.com
23 February 2011
  • Summary: The Blackberry Torch does provide significant improvements over previous generations, but it is not the “discontinuity” that so many had hoped for. On the software side, it brings much needed improvements on critical aspects (like the browser) that RIM needed to fix urgently – simply in order to maintain their position. Things that used to be very outdated (like the setup), are now usable.

BlackBerry Torch 9800 Review

23 February 2011
  • 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 Pre form factor ...
  • 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.

BlackBerry Torch 9800 – Didn't Quite Light Up Our Lives

Tech2
23 February 2011
  • Excerpt: Released in India a couple of months after launching in BlackBerry's main North American markets, the BlackBerry Torch 9800 carries too many expectations on its rather broad shoulders. In the status-conscious India that is also concerned about price, BlackBerry is the coolest smartphone brand to flaunt, unlike North America where ‘cool’ and ‘BlackBerry’ are words that no longer seem to go together.
