Pros * Fantastic build quality and very thin
* Very high performance in all apps
* Browser on par with by iPad for rendering and performance
* Screen resolution
* Touch screen
* Best keyboard on any mobile phone, period
Cons * Screen size can be small for some web sites
* OS 7 takes up a lot of the 768 MB of ram (~190 MB available for apps, which isn't bad as apps usually 1-3 MB, just lower than expected)
Summary Performance in virtually all areas of the thanks to the 1.2 GHz snapdragon CPU and Adreno 205 GPU (which is the same GPU in the Sony/Ericsson Playstation phone). The Blackberry can finally enjoy not only real games based on OpenGL, but all animations in apps also benefit from the GPU.
The screen resolution on my Bold 9000 was very crisp, but the resolution on the 9900 is super crisp at 640x480 on a 2.8" display (287 dpi), which is high enough that you cannot see individual pixels. The keyboard is the best of any phone and I didn't think it could get better than the 9000, but it really is.
Bottom line, the Blackberry 9900 is now finally on par with Android and iOS, but with the addition of email, calendar, BBM and social apps that are so much better on Blackberry.
Looking forward to some great OS 7 apps to take advantage of these new devices.
Pros Feels great holding it, Nice built , great design, OS7 n liquid graphic,good HD Video,bigger screen n great new apps
Cons Battery Life is the only drawback! Previous Bold models have better battery life. Still not many apps available especially Free ones.
Summary A good uprading for those who want to upgrade from older Bold models but must aware of the shorter battery life
Pros 1. Best keyboard in the world.
2. Great build quality.
3. 1.2Ghz processor is 20% faster than iPhone and it does not drop your calls.
4. It is a world phone on all carriers, many droids and iPhone on Vz are not.
5. Best e-mail, messaging and security
Cons 1. Less apps.
2. Not as good as iPhone on multi-media. Movies, etc. Though it does have great live TV for news etc. Very nice music and will be BBM Music capable.
Summary I need a phone that works and works anywhere. I need e-mail and messaging that is secure, fast, reliable. I want a great web experience and finally this Blackberry delivers. I need a phone that has power to get things done but does not die on me half way through the day. I want a phone that I can create shortcuts and types fast. Lastly, I want a phone that is build to last and has great speaker, noise cancellation, great camera and HD video. Many phones have great features but unless your main reason to have a phone is watching movies or playing video games this phone is just the best.
Pros Touch screen with key board, keyboard feels amazing, thin, love the way it looks, graphics are amazing, sounds are perfect, love the organization in everything
Cons freezes quite a bit, when on web the mouse seems to sometimes be off track, pressing the lock button multiple times before it unlocks from black screen (freezing maybe?), very few apps, takes FOREVER to sync music, photos, etc. onto the device
Pros Is a premium world class product. Can easily use the phone with one hand. Unbeatable sound quality. The best keyboard anywhere.
Cons Screen a bit small for web browsing.
Summary I switched from a Samsung Galaxy S2 phone because of the superior sound quality of the Blackberry 9900. Also the Blackberry feels better in the hand. You know you have a better product just by holding it. The better apps available in the Android market are not enough to justify keeping the Samsung Galaxy S2 if making calls and sending messages are more important then playing around on the web. The Blackberry 9900 is a far superior communication device. The Blackberry keyboard allows one to enter text with one hand if necessary. The Samsung Galaxy S2 keyboard is nowhere close to the BB and also the sound is no where near the BB's quality and clearness.
