Summary: A smartphone with touch screen plus qwerty keypad and the Blackberry trademark jockey button. what could be a better combination ! It is neither heavy nor outfits my palm. Slider is smooth. It is easy to carry, fits into my jeans pocket. I like this "Best-of-both the worlds" product.
Summary: I wanted a blackberry with the ability to use both the touch screen option and the slide up keyboard. For this reason, the Torch 9810 was my obvious choice. 1. Arrived swiftly enough (weather delays but amazon prime member) 2. Works great except for the fact that my phone would overheat and my battery would be exhausted within a couple hours. I had very little standby time and would just lose charge especially overnight and even during the day.
Summary: Worked without any problems outside of the box. I had to invest a bit in having it unlocked from specific carrier in order to use my sim but that was a minor issue along with minor scratches .
