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.
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 doesnï¿½t 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 doesnï¿½t really work in portrait mode, Web browser has some bugs
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: RIM takes another stab at a touchscreen-only smartphone, but has the Torch 9860 caught up with the competition or has it already fallen behind the pack? Julian Prokaza finds out in our review.
Conclusion: Some areas of the BlackBerry Torch 9860 feel a little antiquated as a consumer device. Diving into the menus you still need to "save" as you make changes. We also can't help feeling that, although the sliding app tray, and the choice of homescreen menus is useful, it isn't as dynamic as other operating systems.
Pros: Good screen, good camera and mostly good design
Cons: Software freezes and a lack of app compatibility takes the shine off this handset
Conclusion: Die Zeit, als BlackBerry noch langweilig und für Multimediainhalte gänzlich ungeeignet waren ist vorbei. Das Torch 9860 beweist, das man auch mit Produkten aus dem Hause RIM Filme drehen, anschauen und versenden kann. Der Musikplayer kann ebenfalls gefallen.
