miss confuse, 18 Mar 2012Please help me to decide, blackberry bold 9900 or 9790? thanksI was in the same position last wk, opted for 9790.
9900 is a more superior phone, however it seems to drain the battery at a much faster rate than 9790 reading the opinios here.
9900 also is bigger & heavier, getting on the borderline of being too big.
Theres a new BB operting system "10" out in Qtr 2/3 which would hopefully get closer to the brilliant andriod / iphone op system. Weather these phones would be compatable, no one knows yet, but the main prob I see with the current Bold handsets & the OS7 is that they drain the battery far too quickly, even with wi fi, gps turned off and brightness set to lowest 30 setting.

guys please help me out i m kind of confused between bold9790 and torch9860.... which one should i go for???
kala, 13 Mar 2012the battery is realy not so good and it is almost the same as the 9900 bold pls check your firmware version. Upgrade to 184.108.40.2067.
The Battery Life will definitely improve.
Well I am upgrading my phone in a few weeks,I think I might try the blackberry 9790!! Though can anyone tell my how I would download songs on it , like can I only do it through my computer or can I do It through my phone like the I phone ???
I've been a 9700 user since 2010 and moved to 9900 at the end of last year. Now i'm contemplating 9790 but after reading about it (and briefly tried one) i might have to find (if still available) the 9780/9700...
The battery for the new guys is smaller than 9700/9780 but that is not the major downfall for me since (at least for my 9900) the charging time is almost half compared to 9700. So 0.5-1h in my car or at my laptop gives me enough juice to last throughout the 24 long days at the office. I expect 9790 to last a little longer compared to 9900 since the screen is smaller and these capacitive touch screes are the big energy sponges.
The big issues in my opinion with the new OS7 guys (mainly 9900 but I'm afraid 9790 inherited some of them) are the bugs: freezing, overheating for apparently no reason, touch not functioning for couple of minutes (sometimes restart is needed), delayed scroll, unexpected restarts, severe errors that required completely new SW re-write.....my 9900 has been in service 4 times in 3 months (the second time they replaced it with a new one). In my country in the first week they start selling 9900s, 20 of them returned for service (there were not 2 phones in those 20 with the same defect...).
Being a BB addict (especially Bold) and wanting to use this kind of terminal leaves me no other option but to revert to the 9700/9780 until RIM decides to do something before things turn really bad for them....I wish them luck...
the battery is realy not so good and it is almost the same as the 9900 bold
For ppl who say that the 9790 has the worst battery I'll say 2 them that for me the battery lasts long enough .....
The 9780 has the longest battery life but the 9790 has a good battery life ......
And for some who are having issues with their bolds 9790 or 9900 they should make a software update for the device and it will solve all the problems :)
And btw I'm a user of the 9780 and 9790 :) and I say for performance go for the 9790 ! And for the battery life go for the 9780 ! As simple as that .....
Hope this helps :)
How's the camera of BB 9790? Is it nice? Is it better than Curve 9360?
