i just bought this phone in exchange for a bold 2 in thailand for about 11500 batt more which was a steal i think. i love this phone and it even looks awesome and does everything i want it to do ,
I've had this for a few weeks now, the battery on this is pretty decent. I listen to music, a lot of web browsing, lots of sms and bbm and it lasts me till night. The lag issue just started, but if you power cycle your phone every 2 days, itll be fine. The only complaint i have is that BB OS 7 is boring compared to iOS and android. Yes the browser is smooth and it is truely smoother than the old torch, but thats already been achieved by many andriod devices and apple a few years ago, its nothing to brag about *cough* liquid graphics *cough*.
If you like sliders and is a blackberry fan, then this would work for you. If you expect more than a days use (heavy usage) then look for something else. Bottom line is that this phone works smooth, but its nothing special compared to the competition.
vsmart9, 13 Oct 2011This phone is copy of Motorola Spice XT 300. Black berry i didnt expect you to copy design fro... moreActually, the Torch 9800 came out about the same time as the Spice X300. I initially wanted the Spice, but it was not available in the US. Got the Torch and was very happy. The Spice has a better antenna and better call quality, but not by much. The Torch is better everywhere else, most especially with the camera and battery life. I've heard the Spice has horrible battery life. IMHO, both phones copied the Palm Pre line of phones, which were out well ahead of either of these.

You should change your name from RIM--[RESEARCH IN MOTION] TO CIM--[COPY IN MOTIONS].
Anonymous, 12 Oct 2011What the battery life like compare to other BB phones?The battery life isn't good compared to other Blackberry models but better than a lot of other smartphones. I can get a through day on a full charge with moderate to heavy use. I miss the battery life of my old feature phones.
if it has NFC.it will be the best Torch ... why RIM always made product without complete fitur???
if it's all plastic then it should at least be lighter than the 9800
I think its cool, but I'd really like to know which is better, the 9810 or the 9930
In terms of functionality...
plz am confused asto which phone to buy between 9810 and the new bold torch.plz can u help me with suggestions?tanks
