I have taken bold 9790 one month back, phone is wonderful with new software, touch is very good, but THE only BIG problem is, battery life, RIM claim it for 5 hours, but i am checking daily, it only lasts for maximum talk time of one and half hour, with active BBM and E-mail. even when it is connected to 2G only. the battery power is 1230 mAh only whereas in previous edition bold 9780 without touch it is 1500 mAh!!! to make this phone a hit they should increase the battery power! nobody from customer support is ready to listen, then just tell to take it to service centre.... but nothing will change...unless battery power is increased... is anybody from BlackBerry Listening???
hi i have the 9790 for a week the phone is very nice...the battery to improve it use 2G only switch off locations and put screen brightness to 10 only.The 9900 is a faster and better mobile overall but battery is much weaker..Overall i say this is the best OS 7 becuase off size and battery..about time BB made better batteries. i rate 8/10.
The fone is perfect. Only that when I try puting it on 2g, d fone restarts continuously. And I rily need 2g cos 3g drains battery faster. Someone pls help.

After a few weeks if your phone battery is not significantly improved then you should get your phone replaced. My torch 9810 also had poor battery life at first, now it lasts up to a day and a half and very heavy use.
Hope this helps!
This is my First Blackberry Device! from the OS7,the design and the camera , I'm Happy about it! But one thing that disappointed me is the BATTERY LIFE which the main important thing a smartphone should excel! Damn, it DRAINS so Quickly and it WARMS a LOT! HELP :/ .
I hope RIM will fix the problem soon! smh
