Review of the Blackberry Torch 9800

Posted by Admin Saturday, January 14, 2012

Keep the Torch 9800 closed and you’ll notice RIM is still happy being loyal to its papyrus old designs. The slider makes all the difference to the hardware of the phone; otherwise, it still reminds you of the old boss 9700. The familiarity continues with the dimensions: 4.4” x 2.4” x 0.6” and weight 5.7 ounces. Call and end keys, menu and back buttons and optical track pad navigation, so very reminiscent of BlackBerry, sports the area below the 3.2-inch half-VGA screen. 5.7 ounces is by no means light yet the Torch turns out to be quite handy and easily slips into a pocket.
Occupying the left edge of the phone is the microUSB port while mute and lock buttons sit on the top. Expectedly, the 5-megapixel camera lens and LED flash are on the back of the phone.
As you smoothly slide the phone, there is an important hardware aspect to be noticed. The tracks of the slider are so perfectly aligned that when closed it is not possible for a person to judge whether it is a slider phone or not. The slide gives way to an impressive narrow QWERTY keyboard with high keys and smooth operative fucntions.
Getting to the touch screen, it is responsive enough to slight touches and doesn’t need clicks to activate applications. As with recent phones, there is the pinch to zoom experience, but it is not what we expected.
