I have 1 its not that nice I cnt have the lastest bbm nor can I install instagram...also I can't get bitstrips.... So not cool
Worst piece of crap, initially was so good but then it started freezing regularly and it starts calling other numbers. while you on a call it puts your call on hold. Now four months later the charging port is damaged. I have never had this problem with any other BB. I take it to Customer care and get told that the port is not under warranty. It will cost R1710 to repair. How convenient. Cant wait to change over to Samsung - only heard great reviews. What a waste of my contract. Blackberry should recall these fones cos I was told at Customer Care that this is a common issue. Too upset. Save yourself some heartache DONT get this model.

This is BB's worst phone ever. I downgraded from using the 9810 as I was not very confident of the 10 OS functioning and decided to wait for the OS to stabilize. In the interim, I bought the 9720 as it has both touch & a physical keyboard and ran the 7.1 OS; same as the 9800 series.
Issues faced with this model:
1. When on a call, if I need to look up a number or other info on the phone, the screen remains dark and refuses to light up whatever one does. I had the phone replaced, but the problem still persists.
2. When on a call and I add another participant, I am not able to hear anything and need to disconnect the call and try gain. Incidentally, the called parties report being kept on hold. This happen very frequently.
3. When browsing and I open 2 or more pages, the browser hangs or shuts down automatically
4. The phone also tends to hand periodically with no apparent reason
I never faced these problems with the 9800 series and I am sure not going for the Z series or devices running the 10 OS.
Please please never even think of buying or using this phone. Painful pathetic piece of Shiit.
Frustrated with random operations with touch screen. Keeps dialing out or doing some nonsense. No way to disable touch. Crashes very often, during calls. Simply doesn't reboot. You can try removing the battery and all the gimmicks. Can't imagine someone can have a OS in 2013 which is similar to what you experience with 1998 windows 3.1. This company should simply shutdown so that this cheating stops. I am a corporate user and have been using blackberry for past 10 years and shocked with this model. what crap. hope this review helps. Don't ever think of buying ot owning this buggy os and phone.
Excellent battery life
Spacious keyboard, easy typing
Firm build quality, nice rubber feeling all round
Very loud speaker compared to other Blackberries
Very little charging time needed
Camera seems to freeze when pressing back button, although it doesn't happen all the time
Color of pictures taken at night or indoors could be better
If you are someone that likes chatting and social media then the 9720 is for you. However if you prefer to have access to all kinds of apps and games then go for an Android phone.
Personally I don't have any issues with my 9720. I love it, coming from Android back to Blackberry:)
I think this phone is great.. BB just don't want let the old phone tpye die in market.. I think has a good phone
I have the bb9720 since November 2013 and since January 2014 I have had problems!!! First my phone kept on rebooting all the time and now 4 months later I found a solution... I put a piece of paper inside because I was told the battery is too small for the phone.. my phone did not reboot anymore but now it wont charge!! what now??
