I’ve been using a BlackBerry Torch 9800 for a few weeks now and think it’s a fantastic device. Here are my favourite things about it; taking into account both the new device and BlackBerry OS 6.
- It’s as solid as ever
Despite the new features, the operating system still feels as solid as ever.
- Battery life still decent
Even with the larger screen and updated OS, my battery has been lasting a good few days.
A bit jerk-o-matic at times, but a great implementation.
- The home screen
Frequently used apps is a very nice touch and very intuative
- Modal style popup commands on tap/hold
This is a really nice way to present lots of information
- Better music player & file management
File management was pretty hideous on earlier versions of BlackBerry OS so the new interface is refreshing.
- A half decent browser
Not fantastic, and still not in the same league as WebKit (Android) but very good nonetheless.
- Nice graphics & display
UI was always BlackBerry’s weak point. It felt solid but was never too aesthetically pleasing. OS 6 changes this.
