Top 10 Cell Phones PC World
Nov 13, 2009 11:30 am
1. Motorola Droid
Bottom Line: The first Android 2.0 phone impresses with a strong suite of Web features and a stunning 3.7-inch display, but some users might have trouble with the shallow keyboard.
2. Apple iPhone 3GS
Bottom Line: Performance enhancements distinguish the otherwise evolutionary step-up iPhone 3GS from its previous iterations.
3. Motorola Cliq
Bottom Line: The beautifully designed Motorola Cliq is a social butterflyâ€™s dream phone, but others may find the MotoBlur user interface overwhelming.
4. Research in Motion BlackBerry Bold 9700
Bottom Line: The best BlackBerry available, the Bold 9700 packs a multitude of features into a sophisticated, slimmed-down design.
5. T-Mobile myTouch 3G
Bottom Line: The T-Mobile myTouch 3G is a big improvement from its predecessor, but the physical keyboard is sorely missed.
6. Palm Pre
Form Factor: Candy bar
Bottom Line: The Pre's webOS software is touch-friendly and fun, but the cramped QWERTY keyboard detracts from the phone's usability.
7. Samsung Behold II
Bottom Line: With a gorgeous AMOLED display and an excellent camera, the pricey Samsung Behold II will appeal to multimedia junkies with deep pockets.
8. Research in Motion BlackBerry Tour 9630
Bottom Line: The BlackBerry Tour entices with an ergonomic keyboard and gorgeous display, but the omission of Wi-Fi disappoints.
9. HTC Droid Eris
Bottom Line: If you can live without a hardware keyboard, the HTC Droid Eris is an affordable and feature-packed alternative to the Motorola Droid.
10. HTC Hero
Bottom Line: The HTC Hero marks a giant step in innovation of the Android platform, but it isn't without flaws
For the last many years I have been longing to buy Blackberry device. Before that I have used Iphone 3G, Nokia N97, N96, etc. But this is my first time for Blackberry Device. I have Blackberry Bold 2 9700 that I have purchased here in Pakistan for Rs. 57000/=.
Phone is very responsive, build quality is very nice, but screen is very small. Can't read the web page correctly.

I figured out the problem, its because i downloading this app called colour ID . That's what messed up my lighting, but i deleted it , and now its fine =D
