Dont Buy this phone

I bought this one week back. The phone get hung at least once in a day. A simple restart will not solve the problem. I need to remove the battery and restart it. Sometimes the phone goes off, sometimes audio will not work.
The Audio quality is also very poor. I was using Nokia before. That one has better audio quality. I wasted my 26450 for this stupid blackberry

Superb Evolution Of The Iconic Bold 9780.

First Of All!! You Don't Buy A Blackberry To Compare It With Android Or Iphone. Blackberry is in a different segment altogether. Android Phones and Iphone Are Very Good At What they Do, They Are Very Very Good Media Consumption Devices.
Whereas Blackberry Has Always Been The Best At Productivity. I Own Both, An Iphone And A BB.

Anyways, This Bold 9790 is a slim and sexy device, Featuring The Touch And Type Combo. The Screen Resolution is Amazing, With All The Deep Blacks And Vibrant Whites.
The Device Is Very VEry Light, You Might Sometimes Forget That You Have A BB In Your Pocket.
Its very Powerful BB With The Marvel Tavor MG1 1GHZ processor, You Will Get the Most Out Of Your BB OS 7, Thats for sure.

Don't Go by the negative reviews, its sad that some buyers had bad experiences, BUT the ALL DEVICES COME WITH A YEAR LONG WARRANTY, SO you can Get It Repaired And CHecked At The Service centres For FREE.
I lOve This BB.

Decent phone..but is it really worth the price???

I have been using a blackbery for the past 1 and a half years, I started with a 9700 bold 2 and now I moved on to 9790. I dint buy this from flipkart but wanted to share my opinion with everyone. One line-"NOT WORTH THE PRICE" I say this simply because for the features it offers, it is overpriced a great deal. It is only because I need to be in constant touch with my office and personal mail, do i go for a blackberry or else for the price I really think youl get superbly better phones for this range.


1. Ya, it has a touch screen but doesnt compesate for the extra cost.
2. Ya it has a 5 MP Camera , but..well..
3. Ya, it is sleek in designa and light but whatever..


1. Touch screen is good, but honestly there isnt much you can do with a blackberry touchscreen. Its not an android, so its basically useless.

2. 5 MP camera is a good feature and Iv heard ppl say that its the best BB camera ever, but honestly I dint find anything brilliant about this camera. Very average. A Micromax phone in the range of 15k would produce better results.

3. It is light and sleek, but it is a problem as it slips very easily out of the cover and might fall..which brings me to myu next point..

4. No cover included!!! I mean RIM really, for the price your charging and the absence of features, you really could have added a goddamn leather cover which fits it well. Till date I havent found a cover that fits it completely, either the head is out or you have to buy a belt buckle one which im

5. The price!! O god!! 26k for somthing like this?? Its not worth it. I can get Iphone 3 for almost the same price these days, why should I buy a blackberry.

6. The looks are exactly like the bold 2. Some colleagues at work hardly even noticed I got a new phone till they used it and (accidentally) touched the screen which responded.

Points to note:

1. People have talked about batter issues, and I dont know as I get one and a half day with moderate aount of use. Not sure about the people who are heavy on youtubing and BBMing. One weird thing I noticed about this phone, which I doubt if anyone has mentioned is the battery charges really fast as well. 45 mins to 1 hour and your good to go with full battery. So i dont know what the story is..

2. Sometimes while taking it out of the cover(which i bought seperately) or pressing the lock button, i accidentally touch the screen and some application starts loading. Its a nuisance. Maybe since im used to a non touch bb, im facing this problem.

3. Some people have also complained about sound quality. i think its pretty ok.

Verdict: If you are a heavy Blackberry user and only only want ablackberry for mails and BBM, i would suggest go for a cheaper model like Curve or the earlier Bold. And if you just want to buy a phone, and your budget is around 25k, go for a Samsung or Iphone, dont waste money on this fellow.It is nothing exceptional nor ground breaking.

Sorry RIM, you gotta hit me with something better.

Decent phone,little exorbitant!

I have recently shifted from Blackberry 9360 curve to this bold phone family. And guess what the shift was worth the features. Coming straight to the pros and cons:-
1) Wonderful dashing looks of the phone
2) Silver back cover and the shining blackberry symbol
3) Convenient qwerty keyboard
4) Fine touchscreen which makes working and handling the features easier as well as faster
5) Wonderful display with 1Ghz processor,resulting in super fast Internet
6) Bigger menu fonts helping to use the touchscreen properly
7) Swift movement from one application to the other
8) Camera with the image stabilisation is pretty decent
9) A-GPS helps navigation to get way faster than before and accurate
10) Quite a lot of free additional applications that adds to the wonder
11) Faster BBM service along with net browsing
12) The battery backup is quite good(varies with usage)(I normally surf the net for 3-4 hours,play music for 2 hours and calls/messages throughout the day as per working day,which makes my cell survive a complete charge to zero for around 34 hours.

1) The back cover is pretty lose and tends to open at times
2) The sound is pretty lower than the curve models
3) The location of the speaker is bad,right next to the camera,for which it gets difficult to hear the ringtone. U gotta put a really loud tone to react to calls and messages.
4) It hangs at times and need quite a lot of booting(maybe issues of my service provider)
5) I just received 6GB on board memory though I was promised of an 8GB internal storage
6) The lock/unlock button is pretty hard

So that's all I could say about the Blackberry Bold 9790. It's a pretty decent phone,relatively new and fresh with its abundance of features. But it could have been a little lower priced in comparison to the few advancements from the touch series,and RIM could have included a back cover with this price range which could have increased the desire for this beast. However,if you are into fast working,social networking,u can definitely go for this one. But if you are more into browsing or gaming,then the Blackberry Z10 will be the best option.
