charlie, 30 Jan 2013Is there radio on this phone is there speaker in the phone?
I don't knw why RIM didn't jus give this 9790 piece a 1500mAh battery, instead they gave it same as the Torch & the 9900. For this reason, I still fancy the 9780 over they 9790. Just wish they can make a new piece with upgraded battery ie. 1500mAh.

I LOVE BB9790

I compered both specs and it seems that 9790 is better. I gona use it as a back up phone for me because I already have other phone but I also wana own BB. So should I pay more for 9790 or just get 9360 ?
9790 user, 18 Jan 2013from my experience ith my 9790, batt life is terrible jst like every bb, batt over heats one i... moreYes. the upgrade to OS 7.1 is advised if you want a better battery life, the battery life has seriously improved on my Bold 9900 since i upgraded to OS 7.1. Also if you download Application Resource Monitor in AppWorld that will also help improve the battery life also.
