good phone, got it yesterday. everything expect battery seems not that good. however, it has 1GHz processor, plus touch screen. that might cause trouble. moreover, battery capacity is less than my old bold 9780. since the phone itself very slim, RIM need to compromise with battery capacity .. anyway it is a good smart phone with keypad.
I own both the Bold 9900 & 9790, the battery life of the 9900 is just a day which is unlike any blackberry i have used in the past. I then switched over to bold 9790, to my utter amazement the battery would again not last more than a day. I thus went back to using my Bold 9700 that can last at least 2 days.
The new blackberry touch screen phones consume a LOT more battery than the previous one (this has been my experience).
I would request RIM to look into this, and would request if anyone could solve my problem.
neil, 31 Jan 2012can any one tell me how is the batterry of this phone....how much hours does it works ..??I am using it since 4 days, It's battery is not good. I don't call much but use it for data and never put it on 3G but 2G and wifi, still I have to charge it twice... like yesterday afternoon I charged it full and now its on 10% and on charging again :-)

did buy 9790 last friday. camera is one of the best. call and network are also much better than my last N8. i love the keypad and shape most. well done Blackberry
this phone is quite powerful and fyi some bb handhelds have secondary cameras an example is the new torch.
Ahmed, 31 Jan 2012I read on the review of GSMARENA that the voice and sounds are very low.i really like this thi... morethe external speaker is bit lower than my old Bold 9780. but earpiece is very much OK. i have not received any trouble with call quality. i am using this device for last two week. up to now, this is just perfect device for me, slim and fast!
I read on the review of GSMARENA that the voice and sounds are very low.i really like this this mobile but now i m confused after i read this whether 9900 will be better than this.can anyone suggest me plz.thanks in advance
Martin, 30 Jan 2012Do this phone have secondary camera to video call?Hi Martin, none on the Blackberry handheld's come with a secondary camera for video calls. One can call it a drawback, but that's how it goes with BB
i think the handset looks fab .....
excellent processor as well ...
specs are quite appealing
Bold 9790 is the best BB upto date. i feel only the display is little small. it last two days after after single charging. battery life is not as good as my old 9780, still good enough for me.
