Blackberry’s Torch 9800

Blackberry’s Torch 9800 has lived far beyond our hope, to say the slightest about the phone. This slide phone from Blackberry was released in August 2010 which offers 2G network capabilities of GSM 850/900/1800/1900 and 3G connection classes of HSDPA 850/1900/2100/800.

The phone is pretty slim at 111 mm by length, 62 mm in width and 14.6 mm in thickness. Despite its nice in size, the phone is plump weighing about 161 g. This is a major turn-off for people who hate phones that can be felt in the pockets of their clothes. However, Blackberry seems to have compensated for this mistake by incorporating an envious TFT capacitive touchscreen bubbling with 16 million vibrant colors, measuring about 3.2 inches with an astounding resolution of 360 by 480 pixels. The screen and its underneath are embellished with a QWERTY keyboard, an optical trackpad, etc. In addition to this, the screen also sports a multi-touch input method and a proximity sensor that automatically switches off the display during calls.

The gray cells of this phone are one of the best available in the market. It comes with a 4GB internal storage, a 512 MB RAM and an equally spacious ROM. It can be extended up to 32GB via microSD cards. A 4GB card is included with the handset.

It also features GPRS, EDGE and WLAN connectivity options. The omnipresent Bluetooth can be found on this phone also, which is hardly surprising. The phone also shows off a 5 MP camera with autofocus and LED flash capabilities with added facets such as geo-tagging, image stabilization, etc. The camera also serves as the camcorder shooting VGA at 24 fps.

A BlackBerry OS 6.0 powers this machine supported by an agile CPU of 624 MHz processor. The phone has SMS, MMS, e-mail and other messaging capabilities in-built into it. An HTML browser can also be found in the list of applications which comes in handy while accessing the web. However, we were quite disenchanted by the absence of a radio in the phone which seems to have been replaced and compensated for by a few games that can be found in the device. The handset comes in three colors, namely black, white and orange [a dark shade]. It supports A-GPS and also runs Java with the help of an MIDP protocol which help in the smooth functioning of Social Feeds, BlackBerry maps, Doc viewers, media players, organizer, etc.

The phone is fuelled by a virile lithium ion battery with a 1300 mAh rating that lives up to the expectations of a BlackBerry users in terms of battery life. On 2G one can get 432 hours of standby and 5.5 hours of talktime, while on 3G the numbers are respectively 336 hours and 5 hours 40 minutes. Music can be played incessantly for up to 30 hours on this phone.
