have used the iphone,n8 and now 9800 in a space of 3 weeks, i have to say the torch is the most user friendly BB i have ever used, the screen is bigger,keypad solid,camera excellent, and of course, i get to browse for free.i like the iphone but it is not cost effective,most apps rely on the internet meaning i spend a lot on data, with my BB9800 i pay a fixed fee monthly and enjoy all the benefits.

Hady Aly, 29 Dec 2010Hello guys, I want to know about it's touch screen, is Torch 9800 better or iPhone 4 ?? and ... moreI don't have an iphone but comparing to my husband's ipad, torch can perform quite similar response with its touch screen, it really has a nice feel.
sanya, 30 Dec 2010hey ppl i hvent buyied da blackberry torch bt i m just asking hws dis fone as some r saying it... moreI'm using torch now & it's great. I used to crave for N8, but after seeing my husband's new torch I decided to have 1 for my own. The white one is beautiful. The camera is not that bad, it's quite good for indoor activities & the picture is quite crisp. The video recorder is bad, because of frame frequency (30fps would be nice), but video player is good, it can manage video at least at 1334Kbps, 30fps & audio at 128kbps. The screen is big, way bigger than nokia's usual 3.2", and the touch sensitivity is nice. So far my complain is the battery quickly get warm & the video recorder. Everything else is perfect, especially if u're into social networking, email & docs.

Had my Blackberry Torch 9800 for a month now. I simply enjoy using it. The slider is solid and the interface is very easy to use. I particularly like the feature of being able to enlarge the font. The phone works smoothly and everything about it is great. I would recommend that prospective buyers read the specs well and research about what the phone can do before they buy. The information will help a lot in easily navigating through the menu, and knowledge of some tips and tricks will make using the phone itself a lot easier. Youtube and the Blackberry sites help a lot. I love this phone! :)
amr, 26 Dec 2010hi joe, i also want to disable the auto screen rotation, any luck....??I have not succeeded so far. If anyone has a bad experience with slider, I have a bad experience, slider is not solid, is bad!

When I used the browser on the 9700 I could select an alternate browser so that I could view websites in full rather than mobile versions. Does anyone know how to change the browser config on the 9800?
Hello to all, I am using this phone and it's GREAT, better than older RIM phones. You can find a lot of great accessories at http://www.9800accessories.com
I have had the phone for a few days now and think that it is great but i am having problems with the camera.
When i turn it on it has a blank black svreen and have to exit then go back into camera a few more times before it will work.
When i take a picture it sometimes freezes and doesnt save the picture, and then come the camera shoot button doesnt highlight so it wont let me take any pistures, I have to exit camera and start again.
Is anybody else experiencing this problem?
Thanks in Advance
