I have been a BB Torch 9800 user. Then I switched to Samsung Galaxy Note. The note was good but I think Blackberry is anyday better for day to day use. So I switched over to this BOLD 9900 6 days back.
Trust me the battery life was pathetic intitally for like 2 days but after fully charging N draining it to zero for 3-4 times changed the battery life dramatically. Now once fully charged it give me a back up of 18-19 hrs under 50% screen brightness & talktime of 70 mintues on 2G network with frequent BBM & facebook use. I thinks its pretty decent for a smartfone.
I have been a BB Bold 9700 user. Then I switched to HTC Sensation. The Sensation wasn't bad, but I think Blackberry is way way better. So I'm switching back.
Is the battery really THAT bad? Because my old 9700's battery life was awesome. I text a lot, open FB, and keep the 3G on all the time, yet the battery lasts 'til the end of the day (which the Sensation definitely cannot do). I kinda thought all blackberries are like that. :|
So should I get this phone, or buy the 9790 instead?
Simply works, when typing it's the king! 5 times faster than any touch screen only phone. Work it babe!

Obviously your very shallow minded and have NO experience in BB or many other handset! So next time please keep your mouth shut and stop offending others whilst people are trying to help and give their advice! Are you that sure I've not had the Porsche and the Beemer!!!! Just to say that "Sorry" You are Wrong! I had both before!
Please RIM, when will you definitely come with juicy games such as: Fifa 12, PES 12 and so on? I just can't wait. Do your best ASAP!!!
Is it lithium ion or lithium polymer? on the site it says lithium polymer and in the photo showing the battery in the review if you look closely it is lithium ion . the same goes for the nokia e6 only that it s the other way around .So anyway please give me an answer!
