battery life depends on how many applications you are using at the same time. of course if you are using tons of apps at the same it will run off your battery life no matter how often you charge it...
Good design and comfort.. but low battery life + frequent OS restart problem makes it Undependable. 90mins conference call drains the battery completely.. thus making the carry of charger or USB cable mandatory or even day trips.
Battery life and OS stability seems to have been traded for Touchscreen features.. Touch function on limited real estate is pointless.
9900 BB Battery and performance is enormously disappointing.. Battery Life and OS stability is a must.. else iphone is better choice.
i stuck on bb phones just because they have a physical keyboard.though they have poor battery performance the keyboard always makes stay with them. i would choose android if they had physical keyborads like the bb has.
Guys/Gals.. let me share my xperience. I am using Galaxy SII and been using it for almost a year now. Primarily for calls, text, READ emails, FB. Occasionally for games (less actually), doc editting and to make it as AP for my net/notebook. I always put it in GSM mode and will switch to auto mode when i need data traffic tru it. With this setup, the batt can only to last up to 16 - 24 hours depending on the usage combination mentioned. If i were to use it for AP, i gotta hook it tru USB, otherwise the batt power will drain like nobody biz... So.. in short it is all depend on u. U want more batt power? Purchase an after-market stuff that can provide u with extra power. As for this BB B T 9900.... I am on de way to grab it... It looks nice to me. It's affordable now in Malaysia after almost a year released. Batt issues? Nahhhh..... I will manage.. Not a big deal...
Still failed to understand why the giant companies are making expensive phones with zeeeero battery life.... are they not capable enough.....poor battery life and often it does not connect with the caller unless we switch it off, remove battery and restart it....funny.... pls dont play with black berry users.... as they are brand loyal what about you bb ?

I uses this phone and it's amazing. The battery is not a problem for me, because it depends on our usage. Highly recommended for everyone who wants to buy BB for the first time, and everyone who wants to change their phone :)
BB is the best :)
Sorry, this is my opinion :)

taz, 01 Jul 2012i am thinking of getting the 9900 but i have read and heard bad reviews about the the OS and t... moreHey,
I have been using it for about a month now. I last 1-1.5 days with my battery. It depends on how you use it.
I bought this phone on Saturday evening. I'm writing this on Monday night. Battery is decent on Vodafone 2G network in Mumbai - Maharashtra - India.
I fully charged my device by 6:15am and then was out on tour. by 9:15am I paired my MW600 handsfree to phone. In an entire day approx calling was 2:15hrs. E-mails, Tweeting, BBM Chat was used. Heard songs for almost 45mins in total via bluetooth. at 7pm still 30% charge was left. (Using battery meter app). the people complaining here might be using 3G. I'm not keen to use 3G and happy with 2G. Amazing display and touch feel. I'm loving by 9900.
Its absolutely beautiful but has zero battery life!
If i dont bbm or make calls the whole morning the battery still wont last even past 12 midday. Thats the only major downfall of it. All my friends have it and my company issues it as company fones and we're all complaining.
bold 9900 design is the best !! really nice in hand
especially the white one, awesome :D
but i think BB is just about BBM
without BBM, I'm sure they died
very expensive, less n old feature
you need more than that to survive in the competition dude :D
Am getting a free upgrade from my Current BB Torch.
Is this REALLY worthwhile? Recommendations and opinoins please
i am thinking of getting the 9900 but i have read and heard bad reviews about the the OS and the battery life (very bad battery lifez)..can someone already using the 9900 please reply to my post because my standby time is very less compared to my talking/msging/internet time..i'll be thankful if someone replied to my post so i can decide..thanx
Shanks, 22 Jun 2012Today I took my bold 9700 to a bb shop for getting it repaired. The guy changed the battery an... moreWell, the bb keys started functioning erratic again and this time I took it to the shop. all that had to be done was reload the software (& gave it back to me the next day) and lo the keys are now working fine. all that was charged for this reloading was 450 Indian Rupees (less than 10 USD).I am sharing my experience so that it is useful for the other users.
