1 January 2012
Summary: One area where the new BlackBerry Torch absolutely bests its predecessor is price: where the first phone cost $200 on contract, AT&T is offering the new Torch for just $49.99 when you sign a two-year service contract. (The original Torch now sells for $29.99.
Conclusion: It feels like we’re going over old ground, but the BlackBerry Torch 9810 remains a great phone for the fundamentals and email. If that’s what you’re looking for, in a solid, sturdy design, the Torch 9810 is a great choice.
Excerpt: The BlackBerry Torch 2 is a handsome looking smartphone. The most noticeable change from the original Torch is the more attractive checkered, gun-metal finish that wraps the device. The touchscreen, at 640x480 pixel resolution, is naturally responsive and boasts impressive color vibrancy.
Conclusion: The BlackBerry Torch 9810 adds an excellent slide-out QWERTY keyboard to a good sized touch screen, but the lack of apps and games in BlackBerry App World will be a turn-off for some when compared with rival Android and Apple models.
Excerpt: The latest trend in mobiles seems to be to combine touch-screens and QWERTY keyboards – the Nokia E6, Samsung Galaxy Pro and HTC ChaCha, are all examples of this. And now BlackBerry brings us the Torch 9810 .
Summary: Touchscreen, keyboard, 5MP snaps and a new OS - sound familiar?
Pros: Admirable battery life, Great screen, Improved onscreen keyboard, Unrivalled contacts management, Great still camera with effective image stabilisation
Cons: No Flash internet, Video is fiddly to turn the light on, Poor music loudspeaker compared to Bold 9900, Not much difference to Torch 9800, No NFC and only 5MP camera mean it's not massively future-proof
Excerpt: BlackBerry only recently announced a slew of new smartphones out of which the Bold-Touch 9900 already made its mark on the nation and now it’s the upgrade to the Torch. Nearly a year after the original Torch arrived in the market; RIM has revealed the Torch 2 — or 9810 as it is model-named.
Conclusion: Como toda Blackberry, este celular está diseñado para los que quieren una interfaz amigable para los correos electrónicos y redes sociales. Recomendado para una persona organizada y que quiere hacer todo desde su celular.
Pros: Tiene una muy buena cámara de 5MP. El procesador es realmente veloz, lo que permite que este celular sea multitasking sin que se trabe.
Cons: El navegador, aún tras ser modificado, no es realmente veloz. La aplicación de Mapas y el GPS no son muy buenos.
