BlackBerry Torch 9810 Review

 

RIM has undoubtedly been sinking, but the Torch 9810 manages to do a lot of things well. For BlackBerry users, the Torch's quick web browsing, seamless system navigation, and high-def video will be welcome upgrades. For anyone else on an iPhone or...

Attractive design, Bright, vivid display, Better data speeds than other BlackBerrys, Loud speaker

Expensive, Limited app selection, Touch keyboard is cramped in portrait mode

BlackBerry Torch 9810 (T-Mobile) review

 

Editors' note: Portions of this review were taken from our evaluation of the BlackBerry Torch 9810 for AT&T Wireless .

The RIM BlackBerry Torch 9810 has a sharp and vibrant touch screen, a decent physical keyboard, BlackBerry 7 OS, a 1.2GHz processor, and 720p HD video recording.

The RIM BlackBerry Torch 9810's design is similar to a previous generation model, and it is far more expensive than the AT&T version of the same phone.

The RIM BlackBerry Torch 9810 should satisfy BlackBerry fans with its responsive touch screen and overall specs, but for $50 more, T-Mobile customers could get the much better Bold 9900 instead.

BlackBerry Torch 9810 Review

 

The real downside to the Torch 9810 is the already-outdated BlackBerry OS 7, and the near-complete lack of quality apps available through App World.

Casual BlackBerry users will likely find the Torch 9810 pleasantly fast, quirky and a little bit charming. Those who love physical keyboards will adore that of the 9810 – but it’s not any better than the keyboards on other BlackBerry handsets. The...

BlackBerry Torch 9810 review: Buttoned-up

 

A fresh dose of oxygen or a new torchbearer? It doesn't matter which one you think RIM needed to keep the flame alive. They got both in the new BlackBerry Torch 9810. Double the processing power, the new sped-up and brushed-up BlackBerry OS 7 and...

Enhanced email and data security ; 3.2" 16M-color TFT touchscreen of VGA resolution (480 x 640 pixels) ; QWERTY slider ; Quad-band GSM support and tri-band 3G with HSDPA ; Wi-Fi b/g/n connectivity ; GPS receiver and BlackBerry maps preloaded, digital...

BlackBerry Internet Service account is a must to enjoy all phone features ; No Flash support for the web browser ; No NFC ; No video-call camera ; No FM radio ; No haptic feedback ; All-plastic body ; Poor loudspeaker performance

RIM BlackBerry Torch 9810 (AT&T)

 

The BlackBerry Torch 9810 for AT&T is a very solid messaging phone, but the app revolution seems to have passed it by.

Speedy UI and camera. Excellent battery life. Very good keyboard. Uses less data than other smartphones.

Brand-new OS already feels old. Very few apps. Over-reports signal strength.

The Torch 9810 isn't 4G. It runs at HSPA+ 14.4 speeds on AT&T's network and when roaming abroad. Thanks to RIM's server-side compression, though, email and social-networking messages transmit extremely quickly. The phone has a Wi-Fi hotspot mode that...

BlackBerry Torch 9810 review

 

For those who haven't followed my smartphone history (and I suspect many haven't), last December I gave up my BlackBerry Curve 8530 for an Android phone. It's true, I was long a BlackBerry (and...

Good camera ; Sturdy build ; Snappy performance

Same old design ; OS is seriously dated ; App selection is quite terrible

Neither the new Torch nor Bold provide what it takes to reel back in an Android convert. I’ve seen the other side — the beauty of a large app catalog, an OS that is modern to the core

BlackBerry Torch 9810: Solid, Responsive, and Slightly Underwhelming

 

Last year RIM introduced the BlackBerry Torch 9800, a touchscreen/QWERTY-keyboard hybrid. Almost exactly a year later, the BlackBerry Torch 9810 ($50 with a two-year contract from AT&T as of August 16, 2011) has arrived.

The BlackBerry Torch 9810 improves on where the original Torch left off, but in specs it remains far behind the competition.

In the fall of 2010, AT&T stores nationwide installed a mysterious shroud housing some sort of exhibit. Even employees didn't even know what was

Excellent battery life ; Responsive touchscreen via Liquid Graphics ; Solid improvement over 9800

User Interface ; Outdated design ; Limited app support

The 9810 offers a massive boost in hardware and very little noticeable improvement in firmware.

BlackBerry Torch 9810 Review

 

It's been more than a year since we reviewed the BlackBerry Torch 9800 , RIM's hybrid touch/QWERTY slider, and while the company says the smartphone has gone on to be one of their more popular devices, we couldn't get past the underwhelming screen...

On the one hand, RIM has done just what we asked it to: given the Torch a faster turn of speed and a better display. Unfortunately, we asked for that twelve months ago, and otherwise – BB7 and 720p video notwithstanding – it’s basically the same...

BlackBerry Torch 9810 review

 

Despite BlackBerry's continued popularity around the globe, RIM has been on the receiving end of some bad press in the past year. iOS and Android handsets are dominating the market, leaving RIM in the dust as it struggles to catch up with the...

The RIM BlackBerry Torch 9810 has a sharp, colorful, and responsive touch screen along with a full slide-out keyboard. BlackBerry OS 7 promises support for augmented-reality apps, voice-activated universal search, a new Liquid Graphics technology, an...

The BlackBerry Torch 9810's design is very similar to its predecessor, with the same feature set as before.

The BlackBerry Torch 9810 won't wow newcomers with its tired old design, but its affordable price and much-improved specs should keep BlackBerry enthusiasts satisfied.
