The blackerry torch is all right. Kinda disappointed.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The blackberry torch 9800 to me was not worth the $99 for the phone, and a $145 bill. I have only owned this phone for two months and it has already glitched out on me. The phone not only replaces some buttons with just colors, but it is still usable and it doesnt do it that much. The torch will mess up the keys on the screen, were they will over lap each other.
Excerpt: I gave this phone I try and I returned it real quick. It's very difficult to use and the internet layout is not user friendly. It's only good for emailing, which I don't think is worth the data charge. I also hate that it doesn't have chat style text messaging and the camera is average.
Excerpt: I got my new Torch this wknd while upgrading my son's phone to an iPhone. I previously had the iPhone 3G until this wknd. I had been having all kinds of newer problems with my iPhone and had the thought of wanting to try Blackberry again because I loved the features before. Nothing beats an iPhone but with the mobile provider and that phone it wasnt working because of signal issues. So after hearing that I could upgrade my phone to the Torch for FREE I did so.
Excerpt: I am a software engineer tester and my company creates applications for Blackberry and iPhone / iPad . I have a chance to compare both of them as a tester using different simulators. Applications for Blackberry are poor in a comparison with the same applications for iPhone and iPad. iPhone / iPad allow to emplement more functionality and more friendly interface. I even prefer to test applications on iPhone / iPad because it is much more modern and easy to use.
Excerpt: I was extremely excited about the Blackberry Torch when I first heard about its pending arrival. I loved my Tour but always wanted a touch screen as well so when it came time to get a new phone I got the Torch instead of one of the windows phones. The new OS is pretty amazing and completely useful and as a phone its great when you used the keyboard, my problems with this phone all revolve around the touch screen.
Excerpt: This is my very first Blackberry ever and I think it is okay. Prior to this phone I bought an HTC Touch Pro and it sucked. The battery life was only a few hours and the phone was just too complicated to use. After 1 month I traded in for that phone and I'm so glad I did. The battery life on my blackberry is 2 days lol. It even came with a hands free earpiece! The only problem is the ear bud is too big for my ear. Whoever makes earbuds needs to account for the female ear.
Excerpt: So I was all hyped up by the new Blackberry Torch featuring the touch screen capabilities. That is, until I actually got one two weeks ago. I received the phone on Friday and flew to Mexico on Monday. Over the first weekend at home, I had numerous dropped calls which I never experienced with my Bold 9700. Same carrier, same house. New phone. Deduction....the torch was causing the issue.
Excerpt: I am an huge Blackberry user. I haven't had any other brand for the past 4 years. They are simple to use and very good phones. I recently purchased the Blackberry Torch. I like it just not as impressed with it now that I have it as I was when I wanted it. The touch screen is slow compared to many other touch screen phones: Iphone/Andriod. It does have the same features of previous Blackberry's with a few new programs on it like Social Feeds.
