i'm getting this handset as of tomorrow .i'd like to know is this a good phone tyo have as a first time blackberry user..and how do i spare battery life?
ya it is a very good phone,apps are awesom and battery is better than galaxy phones of smsung
This is a amazing handset but I would advice you to buy the samsung wave or similar stuff @ the same price range. The main problem with this cell is the poor battery life. It states 5hrs for talktime but it drains off in 3 hrs itself. Hence good features but no point when battery goes down so quick. - Don't Buy !!!

maruti, 15 Jul 2012Hi Guys i want to buy this phone, can you suggest me about this. I ve been using this phone for past 6 months. I found very good. application provided by RIM can not be beaten by any other. my brother has got galaxy. but this is far better. I also found sound quality is superb compare to galaxy. but seems battery is having little problem

And the torch has a fast browsing experience , fast CPU, autofocus 5mp(which the curve doesn't have autofocus) , 720p HD video, more internal memory....
Its just as simple as that!
And for the battery life the curve has a better battery .
But the torch once u upgrade it to 7.1 and download battery saver it will last a lot !
So as my experience with the torch 9860 its really the smoothest bb I've ever used ....
Hope this helps buddy

At least you also give us an idea which model that will maximize productivity or which performs better, unlike other which compares business phone to a multimedia/entertainment phone which both has its own pros and cons.

hi have had mine now for two weeks and I have had a few other blackberry and android phones before. The phone is brilliant I was doubtful reading all posts here before I bought it but it has surprised me.
The sure type predictive keyboard is fantastic and I set mine as the condensed sure type in portrait mode and normal qwerty in landscape mode.
The battery is not the best but no where near as bad as it's made out to be
in get a full day of business use from my 9380 on cell can in Johannesburg I recommend this phone I am a 50 something business man and the touch screen is no problem to adapt to. I well done Rim / blackberry you did something right
I have had this set for 3 weeks now and has been updated it is really fluid and does all tasks well, not a bad camera for 5mp.
Problem is the battery is really poor which if improved would be a great set, I have reduced everything to try and improve this. I had an hour phone call the other day and took 3 photos and 5 texts and from a full battery went to zero dead.
Unfortunately due to this I am afraid I will be getting rid of it as it just doesn't fit in with my needs as battery is so poor.
