Torching the Storm

Gear Patrol
15 April 2012
  • Excerpt: The new BlackBerry Torch 9850/9860 ($TBA) won’t cause Android and iPhone users to defect in droves. The new handset is a welcomed improvement, though, for RIM loyalists in search of an upgrade from the aging Storm I and II. Its 3.7-inch, 800 x 480 traditional touch screen is the biggest ever on a BlackBerry, making the handset the most media-friendly option from RIM to date — especially when paired with the new OS7 which is only compatible with the company’s latest batch...

BlackBerry Torch 9860 Review: In Depth

16 January 2012
  • Conclusion: The BlackBerry Torch 9860 is an impressive offering from RIM that all but dispels the memories of the dissatisfying Storm and Storm 2 touchscreen phones. The Torch 9860 is easy to use, features a good camera and the Liquid Graphics interface looks stunning on the 3.7-inch screen. We were disappointed with the layout of the virtual Qwerty which, in contrast to the beautifully designed UI, was clunky, old-fashioned and not that easy to get to grips with.

Blackberry Torch 9860

25 November 2011
  • Summary: The Torch 9860 simply showcases how far RIM has come from the days of the hateful SurePress on the Storm 2. A touchscreen that works, a sleek form factor and a decent power package - things seem to be headed in the right direction. At a box price of Rs 28490, the 9860 is the perfect device for those who want a touchscreen Blackberry, that doesn�t weigh like a brick!
  • Pros: Sleek form factor with classy build quality, Very good display, Touch response is quite sure, Power package ensures OS 7 is smooth
  • Cons: Keypad doesn�t really work in portrait mode, Web browser has some bugs

  • Conclusion: I think the 9860 is perfect for those of you that use a lot of media such as watching videos and browsing photos as well as using the web. I am a big BlackBerry fan but I have to be honest and say that if the answer to the above is ‘yes’ then would you be better suited with an Android device or an iPhone? As far as I can see the only real advantage to using the Torch 9860 over other platforms is BBM.

RIM BlackBerry Torch 9850 Review

Phone Arena
16 August 2011
  • Conclusion: This is the device that RIM should’ve put out three years ago when they embarked on the touchscreen form factor with the original Storm 9530 . As we know, the key to success in the industry is partly related to timing, and it’s remarkable to witness that RIM is finally coming around to producing a decent all touch BlackBerry. Needless to say, we’re glad to see that they decided to completely drop all the gimmicks found with both Storm iterations.
  • Pros: Touchscreen form factor finally done right, Brilliant & high-resolution display, Smooth web browsing experience
  • Cons: Platform still feels dated, Sub-par photo & video capture, Shrill sounding voices with phone calls

BlackBerry Torch 9860 review

11 December 2014
  • Conclusion: BlackBerry's biggest touchscreen handset is one of its best, and it's working hard to catch up with the competition. The BlackBerry faithful will appreciate the effort here, but whether it's enough to win over fans of Android or Apple is another matter.
  • Pros: Sharp 3.7-inch touchscreen, fast processor, 5MP camera with 720p HD video recording
  • Cons: Lack of apps in BlackBerry App World, Android can offer similar features for less cost, awkward hard buttons
