"Nice screen, slide out keyboard, but reset problems."
19 March 2012
Pros: A great touch screen, and the visual fidelity is the best I've seen in a Blackberry, allows you to read your messages, view pictures, etc. in "portrait" or turn it 90 degrees and you get the widescreen effect. Texture back is a plus for me.
Cons: Reset almost everytime I slide open the keyboard. You have to carefully slide it back with a careful push, it you don't want to reset. A replacement reset several times for reasons I was not able to identify. Lock button unlocks too easily.
Summary: The BlackBerry Torch is a nice solid phone which provides good means to message and socialise with your friends or work associates. Its graphics are very good with liquid graphic capabilities and it handles well with Facebook and twitter and other apps. However it is quite prone to burrs on the front sides resulting in paint loss and scratches on the screen and the back. Its battery life is quite slow and in order to last you a day you need to turn the WiFi off.
Pros: Good Display, Does everything your average phone would do, User Friendly
Cons: Freezes, Bad Layout, App store is great or helpful and most good things cost.
Summary: Blackberry Torch 9810 Leave a comment Following hot on the heels of the Blackberry Bold 9900, RIM has introduced an updated version of the Torch. As well as the new Blackberry OS 7 software, it also has a beefed up processor, more memory and an improved camera that's capable of shooting HD video. But is there enough on offer here to temp new user to switch to a Blackberry device, or is it just preaching to the converted?
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
