"Brilliant Screen, Wonderful Design"4.0 starson by Melody119
Pros: Excellent video quality, Wonderful graphics, Plenty of free applications, Web browser is new and improved
Cons: Battery Life
Summary: I have only had the Blackberry Tour for a week, but I must say I am very impressed with it. Let me start of by saying that I use this phone for personal use and not business. I had the Blackberry Curve before and found myself very board with it. I didn't like the video quality, the web quality, or the graphics. I also felt that it was lacking in the applications department. I was seriously considering switching to AT&T so I could get the iPhone, but really didn't want to because Verizon has the best coverage out there.
Now that I have the Tour I no longer need to switch to the iPhone! The Tour has excellent video quality, much better that the Curve had. The graphics are great, and it has plenty of free applications to choose from using the Blackberry World Download. The web browser also looks better than the Curve; it looks more like a desktop computer browser now instead of a mobile one. It doesn't have a touch screen like the iPhone, but I find that if you like to text and email a lot, touch screens can be a huge hassle.
The only con about this phone so far is the battery life, but if you think about it, the Blackberry is like a small computer and I know with my laptop if it's not plugged up while I'm using it, the battery is dead in 1.5 hrs so what can you expect.
I highly recommend this phone. If you have never had a blackberry before, it may take some time getting used, but it's totally worth it.
