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

Tech2
1 May 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.

BlackBerry Torch 9800 Review: In Depth

  • 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.

  • Summary: Verdict: In its current form the Torch 9800 is a solid business device but its star appeal is handicapped by its deadweight consumer features.
  • Pros: BlackBerry OS6 offers a splashy interface, keyboard is decent to work on, reasonable battery life.
  • Cons: Dated screen, camera is quite basic, touchscreen keyboard isn’t very accurate, poor performance.

BlackBerry Torch 9800

  • Conclusion: The BlackBerry Torch is undeniably the best BlackBerry yet. RIM has managed to keep it familiar, yet fresh, to paraphrase their CEO. That should be good enough to hold onto existing BlackBerry users (and there are a lot of you), but we doubt they'll steal many iPhone and Android customers. The philosophy and features simply don't align: the iPhone and Android are fun phones first, and are still undeniably more entertaining and consumer oriented than the Torch.
  • Pros: Capactivite touch screen, great hardware QWERTY keyboard, OS 6.0.
  • Cons: In the specs war, the Torch isn't at the top.

  • Summary: BlackBerry has always been one of the top handset manufacturers and this time around they have come up with the all new Blackberry Torch which to some is known as the Bold 9800. It is true that the device looks promising and interesting but it had failed to titilate the market because none were too impressed with the BlackBerry OS 6 demo videos.

BlackBerry Torch 9800 review

  • Conclusion: There is a lot to like about the Torch. The OS is easier to use then previous versions, and the combination of touchscreen and keyboard works well. However, the media playback is too erratic, the camera is too average, it feels slow when browsing and the display resolution is simply inexcusable for a flagship device in late 2010.
  • Pros: Improved BlackBerry 6.0 OS, touchscreen and slide out keyboard combination works well.
  • Cons: Low resolution display spoils the experience, as does the sluggish processor. And the average camera.

  • Summary: A slider, a touchscreen, a new approach. But can the Torch keep RIMs fire burning?
  • Pros: Smooth touchscreen control, Great camera with scene selectors, Slide-out keyboard is a good compromise, Bright and crisp 3.2-inch screen, Good enterprise asset-tracking options
  • Cons: Too slow for serious smartphone use, Keyboard is too small, App selection too practical, Not great for media, A bit on the bulky side
