slick device, all in one. great job done by RIM. battery life is not an issue with 9790. Battery life is much better than iphone 4s or Samsung G2 ... but Bold 9780 & 9700 is best in class in terms of battery life.

amazing device, slick design, battery life when compared to the Bold 9900 is much better, really satisfied with it... i can say its the first OS 7 design that takes the cake, well done RIM...
i dont know why the people talk about battery life. did you use iphone 4s? this is very good phone ... i was using bold 9700 and iphone 4. and i did buy this phone last week. BB OS 7.0 is great ...
bought mine 2 days ago , i had 9900 bold thats history now , got9790 now better size and sounds are louder on 9790 than 9900 , i have 2 numbers so getting a second 9790 as i am that pleased with this phone ,i just dont like big phones to me there really a tablet not a phone , the size of this phone is great for me and so light i really do like this 9790
My ways to prolong the battery life is to switch over network and wifi usage.
When I'm at home or at the office, I'm turning off the data services and change the 3G to 2G since I'm using the wifi.
When I'm outside the house or office where there is no wifi, I switch off the wifi and turn on the 3G and Data Services. This dramatically increases my battery life and usage.
and also the phone's brightness and and the automatic dim.
The use of vibration, ringing tone and led light.
My phone's battery life last like more than a day but to avoid hassle i'm charging it before going to bed. :)
I love my phone and honestly speaking, I'm not doing this network switching, profile & alert management on my Bold 9780 coz the battery is simply outstanding compared to the Bold 9790. This are just simple ways to enjoy your Bold 9790 without charging it during the busy day. ;)
