This Upgrade of the first BlackBerry Torch puts any old blackberry device in a very, Very distant past! This is the next generation of BlackBerry, this is the Torch 2!
Featuring the new BlackBerry Device Software 7.0 this phone shows excellent graphics, icons are re-designed and well colored. Although all the system keeps same navigation style and menu as software 6.0.
This new Software also includes voice search engine in addition to the global search feature introduced in software 6.0.
Device improvements over the past model 9800 includes a HD video recorder camera with 5MPx and Flash. The new 1.2Ghz processor doubles the 624Mhz packed on the 9800 so you'll experience fast performance in apps, and in the whole system. I have loaded a GameBoy emulator and it runs full speed but without sound still. Memory has beed upgraded as well featuring 768MB of RAM and 8GB of Internal Memory for storage.
As stated 8GB is for storage of Videos, Photos, Music and documents, 768MB is for install apps, games and themes. You can increase the 8GB by inserting a microSD card. Also features NFC.
In the Software, this features an Compass app, Docs To Go Premium Edition, Preinstalled FaceBook, Twitter, BBM and MySpace. No new games, keeps the old brickbreaker and wordmole.
Others features keeps same, WiFi, TouchScreen, Optical TrackPad.
Overall this is an really fast smartphone which would move you to an new era of mobility, the only fault is that in the actual state, it cannot be used as an Mobile HotSpot device but probably this feature will be added in BlackBerry Software 7.1
Thanks and God bless
Very decent for the price.
Likes about BB Torch 9810: instant email notification, easy to use keyboard, facebook chat, LED notifications (there are apps that allow you change the color for each person's text or calls), smooth touchscreen, nice trackball, sync music over Wifi, much more easy to manage music and pictures compare to iphone, able to use microSD cards for more memory
Dislikes: stone age built-in alarm app, unlock button very easily hit accidentally (which can be fix with slide to unlock apps), apps come in high prices compare to apple store, ugly UI for most app built-in or 3rd party, have to have a data plan to setup email notification, ugly 8 bits looking games, some settings are not very user-friendly
Bottom line, my experience after 2 months using Torch 9810: call quality is good, texting is wonderful, web browsing is sometimes frustrating and not comparable to iphone, speaker is nokia-loud and phone design is very elegant
One of the easiest reviews to write. The build or overall construction of the Blackberry 9810 is solid and of very high quality. Most of the construction is metal and rubber. The buttons feel great and solid even with large fingers. The glass is clear and seems to resist scratching even when in your pocket with other items. Battery life is excellent and re-charge every couple of days. The operating system is fluid and without flaw, clear precise graphics, nice large screen which is touch or with the use of the mouse pad which is also perfect in construction. The apps load fast and multi-tasking is super easy. Email and messaging is the best on the market and is what made Blackberry the choice for business.
Originally purchased to work and has become my most dependable solid phone as of yet. When I travel I use the built in WiFi to stay connected. Unlocked my phone so I can use any sim card which is nice about GSM phones. Built in memory is great but you can also expand it with a card. Video and photographs are more than sufficient to get the point across.
The torch is already a few years old but has aged with grace, still has all the features and social media you need to keep in contact. Pop mail is super easy to set up and Blackberry takes care of configuring it all. All in all this is a perfect phone.
I bought this smart phone because the one I was using (bold 9000) just was not cutting it for me any more, after careful comparison of features and price plus reading lots of reviews I settled on this not so latest Blackberry, it's no iphone but the compass does work better and is more accurate than iphones I have seen and used (take that apple). Don't get me wrong, the phone and I rather suspect that it is this particular phone and not the entire model has minor problems which are easily solved by removing unnecessary apps that crash and make it seem as though the actual phone is any thing less that what it is, and that is great. I use every feature on it daily except facebook and twitter and it has not hung up, I will admit I was a bit skeptical about buying another blackberry smart phone but honestly I have not regretted buying this item. Will I buy another one? maybe maybe not because I generally upgrade if I have to buy another phone except the newer ones may not have the main features such as memory, processor speed and storage capacity along with all the other bells and whistles this one has. The standard battery just gets through the day as is typical with blackberry, fyi buy a high capacity battery and get a full day and a half with with relatively heavy use. It does not feel as solidly built as the bold 9000 but on the other hand it has fallen twice and still works great. All in all great phone for the price I payed for it.
I've owned Bold 9000 before and decided to upgrade my BB. OS 7.1 internet browser is light years ahead compared with older OS 5 incarnation. Browsing is fast, pages are accurate. Torch has GPS, compas, fast processor, etc, all you need from BB device. Screen is very good, and virtual keyboard requres accomodation period. Physical keyboard is neat, but not so good as on Bold 9000 - it's somewhere between Curve and Bold style, but closer to Bold. OS 7.1 is quite intuitive, but it's still a keyboard based OS adopted to touch screen - some operations could be a bit shorter, nothing serious to experienced BB users.
Battery life is, well - not so good. With WIFI on, I can achieve about one full day (24 h) between charging. The good thing is that restarting (battery pull) doesn't drain battery as it does with Bold 9000 (OS 5). All in all, battery is quite underpowered for device.
Build quality seems good, but that will be seen in future as this is a slider. Once again, fake chrome edges tends to peel very easily, which is Bold 9000 flaw too - consider buying one of shell cass.
Value for money? I've bought mine on auction relatively cheap. It's worth it if you like BB and are BB user right now. If we look in the future, maybe it's better to wait for BB OS 10 devices - OS 7.1 device prices will fall and OS 10 is very promising.
