BOLD ! , 04 Mar 2012Hey guys I'm really confused between the bold 9790 and the bold 9900. I'm using bold 9780 @ th... more9790 has loose panels and light leaks out of the keypad.. And doesn't feel lyk a bold at all.. I say go for 9900.. Battery is okay.. It gives me 14 hours wid 10 brightness and battery booster app
Well as I heard that the 9900 has lags and stuff and poor battery life, so why should I use a phone that has lags ??!
My friend he has a 9900 and I use it ! It lags a lot I sware !
So that's why I'm really confused !!
i have updated the system software
it shows 7.0 bundle 2406 (v 7.0.0585,platform )
Is this normal?
how to get the software 7.1?
Guys u wont believe how bad the battery life is on this one. I got a brand new bold 9900 in white . The battery only lasts half a day even with the minimal amount of applications on .. i have a one year old torch 9800 even it has a longer battery life than this

And BlackBerry Bold 9790 aka (Onyx3) is next generation of BlackBerry Bold 9700 (Onyx) and BlackBerry Bold 9780 (Onyx2). Bold 9900 exactly have 5MP Rear Camera with many features on it, and absolutely has "Auto Focus".
love this phone! got it 2 days after it came out and it has never disappointed me. its fast and sexy and has everything you need. battery life is kinda bad, need to charge it every day. performance is excellent.
Anonymous, 04 Mar 2012Personally I'd go for the 9900, it still is a higher spec phone whichever way you look at it! Ok thnx man ! Btw the only thing that makes me sad is that this phone has no autofocus !! Why ?!! Its really disspointing! So I'll give the phone 9/10 :)

Rickster, 04 Mar 2012Hi guys 9900 vs 9790 which one would you 9900 hands down!

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!
ccleong, 02 Mar 2012This is RIM greatest failure: 1) Battery would not last more than 6 hours on standby. (Why do... morei think you have a battery problem, i think you need to take it back. 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...
