Rickster, 04 Mar 2012Hi guys 9900 vs 9790 which one would you 9900 hands down!
How's the battery life after upgrade to the new OS?
Please anyone reply???
Love the keypad..it is soo nice to type...the only problem i see is battery life.I am still counting my latest update of my software to 18.104.22.168..just done today...excellent build quality too.Except this rest all fine with me
Hey guys I'm really confused between the bold 9790 and the bold 9900. I'm using bold 9780 @ the moment, I'm really waiting for u guys 2 reply and give me an advice.
As I know the bold 9900 has no autofocus and it has 720p HD recording but the bold 9790 has autofocus and it has VGA recording. So I'm really confused ! The CPU is almost the same between 9900(1.2GHz) and 9790(1GHz), so I'm not concerned about the battery life as I can swap the battery for an 9780 battery that can fit the 9790 !
An honest reply from a user who have used these phones will be much appreciated :)
this is BB's best designs but a big failure for not having so many features like front camera,battery life (especially,camera features etc.
in this competitive environment if they start manufacturing such mobiles,they wont last long.sometimes i think BB is a dying brand!

I have a 9900 and it gives me 2days of battery, even in heavy use i Get a good day of battery. I upgraded from a 9700 and the battery usage is the all the same to me. And yes i agree the camera is not all that good. But i don't care, I'm not planing on opening a photo shop. I Love this phone, its fast as hell!
tk, 29 Feb 2012wait till it bricks and u will be cussing RIM out. :)don't know what happened to you or you had a bad experience with a BB, but does not mean your ILL fate will the same as other...
AnonD-24994, 18 Feb 2012guys! quit telling that battery life is suck! new leaked OS is out ! 22.214.171.1247 , battery life ... moreHave you try that new OS?please tell us how long it can last per charge now?
This is RIM greatest failure:
1) Battery would not last more than 6 hours on standby. (Why do you carry a phone that works for only half a day?)
2) Camera has no auto-focus. That means you cannot take closeup shots. (What is the use of the camera?) Samsung is able to pack a 8MP excellent camera in a phone twice as slim.
I upgraded to 9900 from 9800 because 9800 screen started to wobble after 6 months and you cannot use a blackberry without a screen.
RIM slack on research (OS7 is nothing great） and quality. I am going back to iPhone while holding on to my Android S2, pending chat applications that soon replace blackberry.
Blackberry will soon fall in line with nokia due to complacency.
is it because of the background data settings same like android??? it drains battery very fast
Great phone I must say. Beautiful Design, I LOVE it! Can't get enough of it. Love the keyboard.
Just one problem though...BATTERY LIFE!! Though we close our Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and 3G coverage, and even going to the extent of dimming the brightness, it still wouldn't last the day.
It's a beautiful device with a fantastic keyboard.
The software it came with (7.0.0) is not so great. It sometimes 'hangs', but it's still workable.
The main drawback is battery life; charged in the evening and in the morning the device is dead... In my opinion this is unacceptable. I already killed all apps, 3G, Bluetooth, WiFi,... still the battery doesn't last a full day
