I've been using this phone 4 a month now and i have mixed feelings. So here goes.
Bad news - Yes the battery is pathetic. Im a heavy downloader and the battery dies after 3-4 hrs of constant downloading. Also the phone becomes unstable if u downloading a file over 100mb. Also i hate the fact that u cant select a only 3G option. This "2G and 3G" option is pure shit! With my old 9300 curve i could get 3G anywhere. Now im stuck on 2G(in the same area!). And lately I've been getting the loading "clock" way too frequently. Very annoying.
Good news - The 3G is superfast though,sometimes i can download a 10mb song in 3seconds! I love the keypad which makes it easy to type long messages. It takes good pics and videos. Also the touchscreen makes me look cool and important lol. And the 6gb internal memory is much appreciated :)
the most pathetic cellphone ever used. battery life is not good at all... same experience with all other users...
other smartphones like iphone and samsung are far better than this phone.
Plz dont buy the phone..wit t for 5 months and regretting every moment wit t..major battery and touch screen issues..looking to sell t..
This phone sucks! All i get is problems, i can barley text cause the phone randomly scrolls up conversations so i can't type, touchscreen barley works, all it is is just problems! horrible

Great phone, been using it for over 3 months and i don't have any problem at'all, i recently upgraded the OS to 7.1, and the battery life seems better.
I've been using the 9790 for two weeks and have not had a single problem with this phone. The call quality is excellent, better than my 9900, the screen does not freeze and the battery is better than on my 9900. People on this forum have written so much rubbish about the 9790, don't believe them, go and buy it.!
