RIM BlackBerry Torch 9810 (AT&T)

PC Magazine
2 December 2011
  • Conclusion: The BlackBerry Torch 9810 for AT&T is a very solid messaging phone, but the app revolution seems to have passed it by.
  • Pros: Speedy UI and camera. Excellent battery life. Very good keyboard. Uses less data than other smartphones.
  • Cons: Brand-new OS already feels old. Very few apps. Over-reports signal strength.

BlackBerry Torch 9810 Review

Digitaltrends
26 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Casual BlackBerry users will likely find the Torch 9810 pleasantly fast, quirky and a little bit charming. Those who love physical keyboards will adore that of the 9810 – but it’s not any better than the keyboards on other BlackBerry handsets. The touchscreen, while bright and responsive, is a bit too small to really be taken advantage of. Call functionality is excellent, and data speeds on AT&T’s HSPA+ are better than 3G, but far slower than other carriers’ 4G options.
  • Pros: Bright, responsive display, Full QWERTY keyboard, Fast browser, Inexpensive
  • Cons: Small touchscreen, Far outdated OS, Terrible app selection, Plastic construction, fragile moving parts, Short battery life

The Light Shines On - The BlackBerry Torch 9810 Reviewed

Bright Hub
16 September 2011
  • Excerpt: The Torch 9810 is the successor to the original Torch on AT&T. While the original was shrouded in mystery, the successor is more open to the public. Does this new iteration of the Torch shine on or do the flames die quick?

Can faster innards and a new operating system keep the Torch alive?

  • Summary: Here’s the truth: had the Torch 9810 been RIM’s original Torch — released a year ago — I might very well still be a BlackBerry user. RIM would have had a phone on the market with a really solid browser, snappy performance, and a decent screen. And that probably would have been enough for me at the time — I suspect that will still be the case for diehard BlackBerry fans.
  • Pros: Good camera, Sturdy build, Snappy performance
  • Cons: Same old design, OS is seriously dated, App selection is quite terrible

RIM BlackBerry Torch 9810 Review

Phone Arena
16 August 2011
  • Conclusion: In all honesty, this is exactly what the original model should’ve been like from the beginning. In an age of dual-cores, the 1.2GHz single-core CPU of the Torch 9810 isn’t quite as captivating, and combining the fact that it recycles the original’s design in every way, it lacks any WOW factor. Besides the faster performance of OS 7 that we’re seeing, there’s nothing dramatically different or new to warrant existing Torch 9800 owners to make the jump.
  • Pros: Much more responsive platform experience, Vastly superior web browsing performance
  • Cons: Recycled design, Not enough new features with OS 7, Outdated right from the start

BlackBerry Torch 9810 4G

16 August 2011
  • Conclusion: If you're an original Torch owner and you enjoy that phone, the Torch 9810 is a sweet upgrade that brings much faster performance while keeping battery life the same. The higher resolution display, faster data connection and refreshed OS add to the pleasure, and the solid build quality improves on the old Torch.
  • Pros: Faster data speeds, faster CPU, improved web browser.
  • Cons: OS 7 feels out of date, 3rd party apps weak, keyboard is cramped.

BlackBerry Torch 9810 review

Pocket Lint
17 January 2012
  • Conclusion: The BlackBerry Torch 9810 feels like an incremental step for RIM. The previous handset had obvious problems, some of which are addressed here, but we also feel that the 9810 is the phone the 9800 should have been. That sets this handset behind the times a little and that's certainly not helped by a user interface that lacks the consumer ease that you'll find in iOS, Android or Windows Phone 7.
  • Pros: Screen space and physical keyboard, BB email is still great
  • Cons: Design isn't great, lots of lag, browser crashes, screen lock key is far too soft, OS isn't as refined as rivals
