BlackBerry Torch 9810 Review

BlackBerry Torch 9810The BlackBerry Torch 9810 is a slider smartphone sporting a physical QWERTY keyboard, which is a direct enhancement over the earlier Torch 9800. The Torch 9810 is essentially the spitting image of its forebear, it feels, measures and looks the same, save for some minor changes. With a display the slides upwards to allow the use of a physical QWERTY keyboard, RIM is still convinced with its classic formula.

The Torch 9810 could feel rather chunky by today’s standard, measuring at 14.6mm thick and weighing at 161 grams, but you shouldn’t be worried as the phone can clips easily into any bag or pocket.

Users of earlier Torch 9800 may find the 9810 a worthy upgrade with its VGA display, faster 1.2GHz single-core processor and 768MB of RAM. The upgraded hardware allows the 9810 to crunch more captured data from the 5Mp rear camera and output 720p videos.

If your interest is only in basic communication means, then the Torch 9810 still does its job rather well. The built-in universal inbox feature allows users to jump easily to alerts and messages. Also, having information synched to our device is a welcomed capability.
