weak

liaolteanu has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

do not buy one
the touch screen activates at the slightest touch while the phone is close to the ear and it will call other contacts while you are in a conversation...
the only possibility you have to stop this is by pressing the lock key at the top of the phone ... I used it until the casing broke... very bad quality of the plastic used since I've only been using it for 7 months ...
the first and last rows of keys are on the edge of the casing hence they are harder to press

Build quality 2/10 weak casing
Reception 7/10
Call quality 7/10
Internet 4/10
Multimedia 2/10
Camera 7/10
UI speed 9/10
Everyday usage 2/10
Text input 3/10 first and last rows are on the edge of the casing, hence they are harder to touch
Display 2/10 too , too small...
Battery 9/10

Pros

  • email

Cons

  • casing
  • touch screen size and sensor
  • keys
  • multimedia

One of best Blackberries !

kevintangi has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

This is my second blackberry, and im using it everyday, for heavy chatting w/ my friends. Even though i only use that on 2G, battery only last for 6-10 hours a day. i must bring my power bank everywhere.
I only use this since last 2 weeks, because i just bought it.
the build design is cool. very elegant. very nice on hand.
the camera is such disappointment, because only 5 MP, but still able to shoot (fortunately!)
the keypad is just amazing, i love Blackberry Bold keypads, they're big and silent.
touchscreen is sensitive. great
lack of front camera is such a shame

Build quality 10/10 very elegant design, very nice at hand

BB Bold 9790

ghost has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

It's a good upgrade fro curve 8520 2g to 3.5g & a faster cpu. The memory is good with it's 8 GB storage, 768 MB RAM + microSD, up to 32GB. Touch & type is cool the keyboard is awesome good feedback too. The weak point is the battery but i can get 2 days with little use...

Amazing phone

vinoh4u has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I am using this phone for one week. On the day one i used the phone continiously for 8 hours (Facebook, twitter, BBM, Mails, Browsing, Downloading, etc etc), which made the battery to lose 90%. On the second day, i gave moderate load to the phone (Facebook, Twitter, BBM, Mails & occationaly browsing), which made the battery to stand for one full day.

Its anyday a better buy when you compare with 9900.
