No pros


  • Low pixel density screen (250 ppi)
  • Single-core processor
  • Too little RAM memory (768 MB RAM)
  • Low resolution display (480 x 640 pixels)
  • Low-resolution camera (5 megapixels)
  • No front-facing camera




RIM BlackBerry Torch 9810 happens to have a clear cut design similarity with the original handset. However, looking past the surface and deeper into its hardware, there's something beating much faster under the hood that's going to supply the handset some much needed processing power. It is packing on a serious 1.2GHz processor with hardware acceleration to really make it tangle with the other big guns in the industry. Moreover, it sports the same size 3.2” touchscreen but now with improved VGA resolution, 8GB of internal storage, and 768MB RAM. Other features include GPS, 5-megapixel camera with flash and HD video, Bluetooth 2.1, 1270 mAh battery, magnetometer, and an accelerometer.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
