I can see that there are already quite a few reviews on this subject but because i felt quite strongly about it at the time I would like to add my personal review.
The clickeable touch-screen is not responsive or accurate, the phone is sluggish and the navigation confusing. It is not clear how many apps are running at the same time draining battery and data transfer speed. Typing messages and emails was ok after a while but not great. I deliberately chose this over the iPhone because I do... (read more)

I guess folks don't appreciate what blackberry has to offer on this smartphone. I love the majority of their smartphone lines and this is one of them.
I found it to have an amazing array of expanded functionality and it was easy to use. Quite a must in your list of gadgets if you want to have an organized career. The design is sleek and compact. Quite durable too if you'll ask me. (read more)

Just buy an iphone. I have been trying not to go that route. But its time. the lagging issue with the blackberry storm is unbelievable. i can make a call and not be able to adjust any controls throughout the call because the blackberry is processing something. the support for the phone has been horrible. The provider does all it can with rebooting blahblah. but it still does not fix the issue. Good by blackberry, i am going to become an apple user. :( (read more)

I have owned the storm now for over 2 months and I must admit that at first I felt a little bit let down. I had trouble setting up the media sync on the PC, it would run very slow and for some reason you can't lock the keys only the screen. But after using it and downloading some apps from the blackberry store I have now managed to get everything to work and can lock what I want when I want. It has also made the phone quicker and to be honest I prefer it to the iphone. I wouldn't change this... (read more)

I have used the BlackBerry Storm on a daily basis for about 4 months now. It has its quirks and I had many troubles with it locking up which required a battery removal reboot about twice a month.
After the latest software update download I installed about a month ago, all is looking up for this phone. I haven't had to do the rebooting like before, the screen doesn't freeze hardly ever now, and it is becoming a user friendly device. Finally!
The Storm is still not a phone you can hold on... (read more)

I have been using Blackberry's for 7 years now, had all sorts of models. I cannot emphasise enough how poor the Storm performs. I wanted to like it, but after 4 weeks I literally want to stamp it to pieces.
New and annoying features:
1. On a call, your ear reacts with the touch screen and turns on the mute button.
2. Battery life is so poor I used a full battery by lunchtime... I struggled to get a full day out of it.
3. Try texting or typing and one is forever recorrecting. Its impossible... (read more)

The touch screen functionality is amazing as the BlackBerry Storm screen itself clicks in. The point of this feature is to protect against accidentially touching the screen when unlock. The phone is a reasonable sixe compared to other smart phones. But the best feature i would say is the quality of the screen. When i played a video the picture was clear unlike some phones.

I couldn't wait to get a Storm when it was first realases and was initially very happy with it but the honeymoon didn't last long at all.
I've had this model for just under 6 months now and am already on my third handset which has also recently stopped working properly. With my first handset the screen simply froze and wouldn't do anything. Vodafone replaced it (with a reconditioned model) which stopped working after about a week. This time keys stopped working. Again Vodafone replaced... (read more)

This Blackberry Storm should not have been released, it is an awful piece of engineering. It is very very slow, it does not let you hold the phone to your face as your cheek acitvates the other buttons. (read more)

The Blackberry Storm is absolute pants... Owned it for several days now, more that enough time to realise that it is unfit for purpose. Poor signal, 3g but spends most of it s time in gprs when I live in a high speed 3g area! The battery drain by 30% after a 15min call, gets hot while charging and in use. Even with light use, several sub 5 min calls the thing is flat come teatime.
It is a sweet looker and very easy to use, I have rough old mechanic's fingers and can still work the screen,... (read more)

If you've already researched this touch-screen BlackBerry Storm on the internet, then my guess is you've probably read more bad than good. So let me start with some good news - at least you haven't rushed into making a mistake like I have when upgrading from my Sony Ericsson K800i to my first-ever 'smart' phone (and first-ever BlackBerry)!
My reason for changing to a BlackBerry was primarily to be able to access my e-mails on the go and, I suppose, to give mobile internet browsing a go. Up... (read more)

Blackberry Storm is pocket size and has good call quality, you are able to sent text message very easy and using yahoo is great but only when you turn the screen landscape. If you're on the move and need a out of office tool this is the phone for you. (read more)

The Blackberry Storm has a nice big screen, good for vids and pics but not for me, just takes to long to do anything, it would be ok if you had time to sit round all day and play with it but just getting up your phone book must take about 30 sec's.
Ok if you have time but not for someone on the move. (read more)

It's stylish; it hits the right audience that RIM intended. It's easy to use and a different style of BlackBerry.
I badly want one, well recommend blackberry storm. (read more)

I'm not one of those daft Motorola fashion mobile users. My last mobile which i love dearly was the Omnia. The Storm is a cheap plastic affair in comparison. I found it impossible to synch with my comp, bluetooth wouldn't pair with anything and my Email accounts would not recieve or send, something the Omnia can do at a touch of its very intuitive screen. The Applications would not download and if they had the 28Mb exclusive apps memory wouldn't have coped. (read more)

I recently upgraded from an N95, choosing the Storm over the iPhone. I played with it for an entire day, tried to set up email, use all the features, but it really is a poor phone in my opinion.
I tried to give it a chance, but it's just so horrible to use for me! The touch screen - like the idea of 'click' feedback, but it's really stiff near the edges of the screen and the devise often selects random parts of the screen in my experience.
To write a message, takes about 4 times longer... (read more)

The VZ navigator feature is better than both the AT&T iPhone navigation and also Sprints. The touch screen feature is nice and so is the layout of the options.
The Storm does not work with Verizon's wireless sync, the only way to push e-mail is through an enterprise server, which mean's it's best for corporate e-mails instead of personal. Verizon and Blackberry technical support is terrible and the software does not work with Mac and it did not work out of the box with any of my PCs. There... (read more)

Screen quality and overall appeal. Also easy to type once you get used to it. The media sound quality is top notch.
I've had the Storm for 3 days now. I'm already in love with it! I've had the Iphone also. I took it back after having for 1 day. I thought it was over-hyped. Blackberry Storm all the way! (read more)

This phone is by far the best phone on the market, bar none and I include the iPhone in that. The iPhone may have the memory and brand name for consumers, but when you can purchase a blackberry for free and a 16GB memory card for less than £40 then why with its many better features and the far superior clickable screen would anyone want to pay £99 or £159 for a glorified mp3 player when most of us already have a nice straight forward iPod!
Long live the STORM and if they work on the... (read more)

The Blackberry Storm is a bit of a dog's dinner of a phone. As a PDA it's great,as a media storage device is let down by no memory card. It will also be locked into vodafone forever!!!! I can't help we are being used as £500 guinea pigs! (read more)

Well worth the wait to say the least lucky to one of the first to get my hands on one. The big thing I will say if you haven't used a Blackberry before it will take a few days to get the hang of but when you do its no looking back just hang on in there and you will see what I mean, if you have used a Blackberry before its fairly similar in workings just a bit slicker in operation and a lot more extras. Simple little tricks for easy fast sending of emails and text, rapid access to the phone... (read more)

All in all a right step for blackberry... and a true iPhone competitor in my opinion... ideal for people who do not want an "iphone" which is quite over-rated anyway... at least its a blackberry and it ticks all the boxes which a blackberry should... fast, efficient and trendy... only if they improve on the accelerometer in the follow ups... well recommend the Blackberry Storm.
