“Close, but no cigar”

Written on: 22/06/2012 by hotxbun (2 reviews written)

I've been a Blackberry customer for the last 5 years and had my Torch 9800 for just over a year. Firtly I think the only thing that saves this model is the fact that it is a Blackberry and email just works. It syncs well with all my accounts and works seamlessly, however, that is the same across all models. The biggest let down is the speed and responsiveness - after a year the touch-screen seems to lag and occasionally pauses for a few seconds before it works out what to do. From a design… Read Full Review

“Worst Smartphone on the Planet”

Written on: 26/03/2012

I've been using my BB Torch 9800 for a year now and let me share some background to my claim of "Blackberry Torch 9800, worst smart-phone ever !" * Hardware * The two top-edge buttons are completely dis-functional. When the device was new, it clicked in and out of lock-screen whenever I put it in my pocket. Now it's even worse, the mute button simply goes into mute without touching it, and in the middle of a conversation of course.... * the proximity sensor doesn't work whatsoever - if… Read Full Review

my fingers are a little large so struggled on the torch after having an iphone for the previous few years. At present, i like the resolution on the screen and also the camera and for business is much better and here it wins hands down against the apple device. BBM is good but miss the range of apps on my iphone… Read Full Review

“Blckberry Torch”

Written on: 26/10/2011 by invacuk (2 reviews written)

Had a choice between and iPhone or the Torch having had Blackberry's for the last 6 years and I am pleased to have stayed with it. The screen is clear, I have no difficulty in using the keyboard. The camera is excellent. I still think Blackberry is the best business phone available. Not into too many apps but the ones I have are very good. BBM is great, keeps me and my family in touch for free. Overall I think its great… Read Full Review

“Love what is available. ”

Written on: 12/10/2011 by CookieMonster (2 reviews written)

I finally bought this phone after a long and hard comparison between this and the Bold 9780. After researching the differences between and playing around with both phones, I finally decided on purchasing this one. Only had it a couple of weeks, but the features and the phone itself is pretty good, and the menus are easy to use. My only problem is trying to figure out the shortcuts, as I've never used Blackberry before… Read Full Review

“Worst Phone Ever! What a waste of money”

Written on: 05/10/2011 by mikedean1g1 (1 review written)

I bought the blackberry touch 9800 after seeing a video about it on youtube. What a waste of time. The phone is poor. The touch screen keeps cutting out and it is difficult to slide items on the phone. The scroll button is terrible. I downloaded a few games from the handset, and it is so hard to play with a touch screen that does not work and a scroll button that is messed up. I am just going to buy an iphone 4s. … Read Full Review

“Fab”

Written on: 01/09/2011 by VNHK (6 reviews written)

I got this phone on my upgrade earlier this year after having had the Blackberry Curve 8520. I got it in white which I looove, have never had any problems with this Blackberry or my previous Blackberry. Sometimes if I have too many things running at once or too many tabs on the browser open it might run a little slow, but nothing a battery pull can't fix. I love that it has buttons and a touchscreen. I actually like using buttons, and I use the touchscreen when I'm feeling lazy. No problems… Read Full Review

time for my upgrade! i knew exactly what phone i wanted, blackberry torch in white. i got the contract through phones 4 u on orange. BIG MISTAKE!! phones 4 u should not even be allowed to supply members of the public, what an absolute joke they turned out to be!! i had the phone for a day before it broke, which however annoying it was, i accepted i was just unlucky and knew i would get a replacement, what i didn't know was that it would take 10 WORKING DAYS to get a replacement.

“Blackberry Torch - Reliability Vs Dated Software”

Written on: 24/07/2011 by JLATHAM (1 review written)

I got my Blackberry Torch from vodafone at the beginning of this year. I have found the phone to be excellent build quality and very stable for a smartphone. The reason for pruchasing a Blackberry phone was due to there reliability against other brands like Nokia and HTC which I have heard various nightmare stories in online forums. Black Torch is a high quality build phone, with enough applications to keep you busy, the only thing really missing on the phone desperately needs is flash… Read Full Review

“Great looking phone with outdated software”

Written on: 11/07/2011

I bought this phone because of it's combination of screen and qwerty keyboard. Because I was used to Iphone iOS and Android, Blackberry OS looked a bit oldfashion. Like Nokia. It's not easy to change settings or just simply add a picture/video to an app like Whattsapp or Twitter. Also the screenresolution and touch gesture is a step behind Apple's Iphone. Last but not least, battery life is not OK… Read Full Review

“Pleasantly Surprised”

Written on: 15/06/2011 by Chubby1 (2 reviews written)

Ease of use first off a little sticky getting Bluetooth transfers going & e-mail set correctly but relatively fast enough before out of box glow diminished. Great feel of the qwerty pad, positive and well defined; overall navigation through the features are nice and intuitive, love the social benefits of Facebook thru to Twitter. My laptop is getting jealous as its used for backup more and more now for the BBT9800. Addresses, contact names and notes are easily exchanged wirelessly and quickly… Read Full Review

“Brilliant piece of kit. ”

Written on: 06/05/2011

Brilliant piece of kit.
I considered the Blackberry Torch, the iphone and the HTC amoung others. My main requirement was to be able to check my e-mails while on the move but I don't need the apps and gadgets offered by the iphone. Besides, every man and his dog seems to have an iphone.
The guys in the shop recommended the Torch as a no brainer for serious business use. I'm glad I took the advice. It's brilliant. I can check and filter e-mails while on the move, I can erase e-mails from the… Read Full Review

“When it came time to getting a new phone I was torn...”

Written on: 28/04/2011

When it came time to getting a new phone I was torn between the Torch 9800 and the iphone4. I loved the iconic look of the iphone but having previously had a blackberry 8900 I knew how useful the keyboard was and I don't really like touchscreen keypads. My partner ended up getting an iphone and I got the torch. I am very pleased now that I didn't get the iphone. The call quality, functionality, ability to customise, messaging functions and battery life are all superior on the torch. The… Read Full Review
