BlackBerry Torch 9860 Review: In Depth

Recombu
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 Review

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

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

  • Excerpt: The slender design of the Blackberry Torch 9860 makes it a great fit for anyone who wants a phone that is big enough to hold firmly in the hand but doesn’t feel bulky. The full, sharp screen is also a great feature. However, the keypad tends to be a turn-off for texting buffs. Overall, the phone is great, especially if you love media, but it does leave a few things to be desired. The first thing you will notice is how different the device looks.

  • Excerpt: Research In Motion’s BlackBerry handsets are known for marrying a screen and small but very usable keyboard . They are the darlings of the business world and of the youth market, which makes copious use of the BlackBerry Messenger service. Forays into screen only smartphones have not been RIM’s most glorious moments, but undaunted RIM has returned to the format with the BlackBerry Torch 9860.

BlackBerry Torch 9860 review

Pocket Lint
3 October 2011
  • Excerpt: The BlackBerry Torch 9860 is a 3.7-inch touchscreen smartphone, sweeping aside the Storm name to give RIM another crack at a keyboardless device. It arrives with BlackBerry OS7, the same as the BlackBerry Bold 9900 which we reviewed recently, but offering a large screen BlackBerry experience.
  • Pros: Good screen, good camera and mostly good design
  • Cons: Software freezes and a lack of app compatibility takes the shine off this handset
