Pros Good Instant messaging services.
Cons Trackball/pad breaks, timer shows up all the time, freezes, camera breaks easily, low battery life.
Summary I do not like this phone at all. I will try to take a picture and I can't because I click on the camera icon in the middle of the screen and it freezes, I can move the trackpad to other areas of the screen but still cant take a picture. Another thing is it always freezes with the timer in the middle of the screen, this is not funny, and it happens at least twice a day. I find this infuriating.
DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE.
Pros I like the size of the phone and the way it feels - this is why I chose it.
Cons buggy and sometimes does what it wants
camera quality is shameful
Internet browning is a pain due to the trackpad (that's the downside to no touch-screen)
Summary This is the third Blackberry that I have had in less than 3 years - They really don't last. With the number of issues that I have had and considering the fact that I am not a heavy user, I just don't think that these phones are very well made. I intend to switch to an iphone or android as soon as possible.
Pros Battery life, BBM, IM, connection speed (3G)
Cons Apps, camera, desktop software
Summary The phone itself I am pleased with. Haven't had it crash yet (fingers crossed) and was impressed with how quickly it loaded up videos on Youtube. Have had issues with the software for PC and Mac but then I don't get on with Samsung's Kies software either. Have had one or two problems with apps not working as well as they did when I first downloaded them- would be nice if RIM gave us a PDF reader for free which would solve the issue. Like I said the desktop software sucks, especially with photo's and upgrades- solved the photo problem with a drag n' drop straight on to the media card. Probably won't stick with Blackberry when my contracts up but for my first smartphone I'll give it a thumbs up!
Pros Best call quality/volume, Internet
Cons Compared to Nokia, this BB is worst.
We cannot install applications in memory/media card.
Application memory is too small
Camera clarity is good while seeing in the screen, after taking photo the clarity is worst.
The quality of camera is like VGA, not 2
Summary Compared to price and the internet option / cost for internet from your service provider this BB is good.
But when it comes to user friendly/ features. Nokia / sony erricson is best.
In this phone hacking software are not possible to install.
In nokia there are plently hacking software for wi-fi, bluetooth, and many more.
Please dont buy this phone.
Pros The trackpad is better than BB 8520.
OS 6 makes using the BB easier than OS 5, offered on BB 8520.
Faster Processor Speed
Cons Camera is only 2 MP sans flash, but the 2MP camera per se is good.
Summary Dependable handset from BlackBerry and is the apt phone for first time BB users over the 8520. Does the job; and the media buttons add to it lively character when compared to the Bold range of phones.
