BlackBerry Torch 9810 - Pocket-lint

 

The score says it all here. This phone is functionally good, with only a few niggles about its perfomance. The problem is, smartphones have evolved a great

Screen space and physical keyboard, BB email is still great

Design isn't great, lots of lag, browser crashes, screen lock key is far too soft, OS isn't as refined as rivals

The BlackBerry Torch 9810 feels like an incremental step for RIM. The previous handset had obvious problems, some of which are addressed here, but we also feel that the 9810 is the phone the 9800 should have been. That sets this handset behind the...

Blackberry Torch 9810 review

 

The Torch gets a timely reboot - but is anything actually different?

Touchscreen and keyboard ; Less lag in the UI ; Improved camera

Chunky design ; Needs more of an upgrade ; Battery

BlackBerry Torch 9810 review

 

Touchscreen, keyboard, 5MP snaps and a new OS - sound familiar?

Admirable battery life ; Great screen ; Improved onscreen keyboard ; Unrivalled contacts management ; Great still camera with effective image stabilisation

No Flash internet ; Video is fiddly to turn the light on ; Poor music loudspeaker compared to Bold 9900 ; Not much difference to Torch 9800 ; No NFC and only 5MP camera mean it's not massively future-proof

This time last year, BlackBerry fans were salivating at the imminent release of the Torch 9800.

The original BlackBerry Torch was a decent QWERTY/Touch experiment from RIM, but fell short in the processor and operating system department. Now BlackBerry

BlackBerry Torch 9810 review

 

Last year RIM introduced the BlackBerry Torch 9800, a touchscreen/QWERTY-keyboard hybrid. Almost exactly a year later, the BlackBerry Torch 9810 has arrived.

Overall, the BlackBerry Torch 9810 is a little underwhelming. It isn't a huge step up from the original Torch, but HD video capture, the sharper display, and the updates in BlackBerry 7 OS are welcome upgrades. There aren't many Android phones with...

BlackBerry Torch 9810

 

RIM signs the BlackBerry Torch 9800 up for some sessions at the smartphone gym, resulting in the beefed-up Torch 9810.

Faster processor, higher resolution display, enhanced mobile OS, more RAM and HD-video recording.

Looks virtually the same as the outgoing device, single-core processor and 720p video not good enough to put in the same league as todays top-end smartphones.

BlackBerry Torch 9810 review

 

BlackBerry may have lost its dominance of the businessphone market, but you've got to give manufacturer RIM credit forkeeping up in an increasingly crowded race. Of its recent slew ofhandsets the Torch 9810 is the one with the slide-out QWERTYkeyboard,...

Slide-out QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi, 3G, 5MP camera

Lack of aps available in BlackBerry App World, heavy handset

The BlackBerry Torch 9810 adds an excellent slide-outQWERTY keyboard to a good sized touch screen, but the lack of appsand games in BlackBerry App World will be a turn-off for some whencompared with rival Android and Apple models.

The BlackBerry Torch 9810 is the latest addition to RIM's smartphone range, and combines both a touchscreen display and RIM's outstanding QWERTY keypad. It may well be the perfect smartphone for text and email fanatics – join us after the break to find...

Overall, the BlackBerry Torch 9810 is unlikely to excite. It's a good handset, but it could have been better. That said, if you're looking for a BlackBerry, and want the advantage of a decent web browser and big screen to view it on, it's worth a...
