@xyz, If all you do is talk and text, save yourself some money and get a good feature phone with a qwerty keypad. That said, between the two mentioned, the Torch (9800 or 9810) is a great messaging smartphone IMHO.
I want a new phone...i am a daily user of messaging and daily usage of 2-3 hours of calling.and i am not interested in any playing games and using other apps and i am using iphone 4 nd have 3g too.
My options are...samsung galaxy s2 and blackberry torch 9810...which one i should buy from these two?

Is it worth getting the 9810 if you have the 9800? IMHO, no. This is especially true if you are under contract with the 9800. The 9810 is without a doubt the better, but not enough to warrant all the money you will have to shell out to get it. I don' t mind having to wait a second longer for a new web page to load. One other fact that I'm surprised wasn't mentioned is that do you know what else a brighter screen and a bigger processor give you? A worse battery life. I own a 9800 and have experienced the 9810. There just isn't enough of a difference between them to justify spending all that money. When I do upgrade my Torch, it will be for s QNX BB Phone as BB 7 isn't much different than BB 6.
Marvel, 30 Aug 2011i also have 9800 but now think to change to 9810 or 9900 i see it, it is realy faster than my 9800Ya I am in the same boat Got the 9800 was thinking of 9900 but I like the full screen touch way better then a half. 9810 ftw
