Blackberry 9720 Review


BlackBerry OS 7.1 is not dead, not by a long shot. Smartphones running the OS will very much be around, and the 9720 is just one of the many that the company says will be launched in the coming months. At Rs. 15,990, the 9720 does test your love for...

Design philosophy carried forward from the older Curves, Good display. Pity it is so small!, Comfortable keyboard

The OS feels archaic, Doesn't look very different from its predecessors

BlackBerry 9720 review


Budget BlackBerry 9720 winds clock back to BB 7, but who's biting?

Good battery life ; Physical keyboard ; MicroSD slot ; BlackBerry security

Lack of apps ; Slow, dated interface ; Small display ; Looks and feels cheap

BlackBerry 9720 Review: In Depth


Is BlackBerry up to its old tricks again? The 9720 features BBOS 7.1, a 5-megapixel camera and a dedicated BBM hardware key.

Excellent call quality ; Lightweight ; Great battery life

Outdated OS ; Unattractive design ; Overpriced

The final sting in the 9720’s tail is the price. At £170 it’s far too pricey for an entry-level BlackBerry, especially when there are far better, cheaper alternatives like the new ZTE Blade V, the Nokia Lumia 620 or if you’re willing to pay up to £60...

Review: BlackBerry 9720 - For Old Times' Sake


Good-old QWERTY keypad; Offers both touchscreen and trackpad; Straghtforward UI; Long battery life

Dated OS 7.1 platform; Paltry internal storage; Back-panel feels cheap; Camera is disappointing; Lacks front-facing camera

The sturdy build and the iconic QWERTY keypad are the high-point of the 9720. On the other hand, now that BBM is available on Android and iOS platforms, there's one less reason for users to stick with the Canadian manufacturer. Furthermore, its BIS...

BlackBerry 9720


Wait what? A sequel to a four year old phone? That's exactly what the BlackBerry 9720 is, a follow up to the 2009 9700 emailer. It's still rocking the QWERTY keypad - and worryingly, largely the same software - but this time it's debuting at a rock...

The BlackBerry 9720 is an unfortunate reminder of just how far we’ve come in the last few years. There’s little to no reason to aspire to this, an operating system even BlackBerry has moved on from, when you could get more apps and a bigger screen with...

BlackBerry 9720


Delivers very good touch and type experience on the go., Multicast., Supports BIS., Dedicated BBM button., FM Radio on a BlackBerry

Not as up to date spec wise compared to rivals smartphones., OS is not on par with rival platforms or BlackBerry 10

Thanks to its lower specs and consequently more affordable pricetag, as well as its support of BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) , BlackBerry’s 9720 is able to compete within a lower price range than the company’s BlackBerry 10 powered devices. The...
