i have had 8520,9700,9650,9380 blackberry's 9800 is one... moreHEY bb geek
I'm about to buy a BB Totch 9800, I really like the features it, as a 1st time BB buyer, do you think it will be a good buy?
The Torch 9800 has the worst battery quality, it can't handle basic internet usage. I pay $76 with Bell and it can't handle internet usage. Such a ripoff.
thumbs up for rim and blackberry!!!
i have had 8520,9700,9650,9380 blackberry's 9800 is one of the best berry. touch and type, push email,social apps camera , if you are a blogger txter,messenger savvy then use bb!!! so what if few apps from bb do u need thousand apps on your phone LOL blackberry is a messaging social tool!! battery depends on how u used the phone... and this is not a toy!! ios and android they are known for games apps... but you need a smartphone not a gaming console..... dont tell that ios or android are good.... no best smartphones , it is how u used it and the depends on the features of the phone... its a phone/tool not a TOY!!!!!!

there are pros and cons in this 9800/9810 smartphones
for those who appreciate a larger screen without compromising it while texting torch is one of the best because it has dedicated qwerty keyboard.
it has lot of shortcut keys and has basic buttons for music, which is more convenient.
resolution, fairly good, pictures of 5mp not that stunning but still a good one.
handy. battery life, it goes for a day depends upon how you use it, data associated programs consume most of your battery, its normal for all smartphones.
dont worry about the slide thing, it is well built.
if you are fascinated by tons of applications and games, BB has limited offer, (they should really work on it), its not the best in it but competent. no secondary camera which also suggests video calling is not supported, likewise skype. however you can still use the chat, which 3rd party apps offer. apps always need to be upgraded, a hassle one.
still... it is a recommended smartphone, and if it fits your lifestyle you will find it one of the best.
9800 vs 9810?
Go for 9810 it is the upgraded version of 9800
Nick, 30 May 2012I was using bold 3 for 1 year. then i switched to android Samsung galaxy s2. i like all games ... morehave it both.
you could not find all the applications you want in appworld, BB should work on it very hard, seriously.
torch is good, no problem with slide.
salik, 25 Jun 2012worstphone no skype, no viber, samsunggalaxy y is better than this phone
worstphone no skype, no viber, samsunggalaxy y is better than this phone
the feature said no secondary cam, so expect no skype. hello. and you even compare it with the cheap Y (no secondary cam) so lame comparison.
it is far more better than what you are claiming better? galaxy y.
FYI they already released viber in appworld
kimee, 26 Jun 2012i use my facebook application in my blackberry torch. but i'm not a plan user..but i have a wi... moreas far as i know, all applications like FB,twitter etc that you can find in the APPworld needs the BIS and it is activated by local network provider, or you would subscribed otherwise the use of wifi can only be use through browsing. try to log FB in your browser and i assure you 100% you can open the account.
further, without the BIS,applications you download or preinstalled are useless.
Anonymous, 30 Jun 2012I m using this phone about 7 months ..but every time I got problem while using internet ...no ... morepurchase the pdf viewer on APP world
the sad thing this phone wasnt really made for gamers, and i agree no skype, (they should really put some effort here) but theres a viber but they need to update.
actually you can use skype through other 3rd party apps like IM+ etc
Anonymous, 01 Jul 2012i hv this one but i think the battery is so bad and i wanna know why bb doesnt show us while s... morehmmm... i can say that the Torch is the same with other smartphones, comparing with battery life, it would just lasts for a day or lucky for 2 days, it depends how you would use the phone, dont browse, dont use 3G, dont do social network or any related data, and i assure you it would lasts longer.
any data related programs will surely consume much of your battery.

sdwvdsvdfvfdvfdbdfbd, 10 Jul 2012Do t listern to anyone , i would rate the 9800 and 9810 at the same as they are really no diff... moreAlready covered this before, by myself and others here, but needs repeating. To everyone here thinking of getting this phone or the 9810. If priced about the same, get the 9810. I own a 9810 and have owned a 9800 and I can tell you from personal experience that the 9810 is better performance wise. It has a better screen resolution and double the processing power.The 9810 is the evolution of the 9800.
sdwvdsvdfvfdvfdbdfbd, 10 Jul 2012Do t listern to anyone , i would rate the 9800 and 9810 at the same as they are really no diff... moreNot Only Differance in Processor, But Better Resolution Screen, More Memory 256MB more, More Storage 4GB more,Newer Operating System now Version & 7.0 & now Video Records in HD, So 9810 is Much Much Better Than the 9800.
