Blackberry Torch 9810 Review
The BlackBerry Torch 9810 is an improved model of its predecessor, the BlackBerry Torch 9800. The BlackBerry Torch 9800 and 9810’s identical dimensions of 111 x 62 x 14.6mm (4.37 x 2.44 x 0.57 inches), design, buttons, and ports can make anyone doubt the latter’s difference. However, the BlackBerry Torch 9800 has proven to be a lot better in terms of features.
Like other BlackBerry models, you will find the navigation keys – phone, menu, trackpad, back, and home -- on the front of the BlackBerry Torch 9810. On the other hand, you can find the micro-USB port at the left side of the unit, the volume rocker and Convenience Key on the right side, and mute and lock buttons on the top side. BlackBerry users will find the placements of keys and buttons familiar. For new BlackBerry users, it is just an easy job to get used to the keys and buttons.
The slider mechanism of the BlackBerry Torch 9810 is firm as an invisible metal track is used for it. The QWERTY keyboard is easy on the fingers but if you find the constant sliding troublesome, you could opt for the virtual keyboard instead. Its 640 x 480 display resolution is better than the BlackBerry Torch 9800. Physically, the look of the BlackBerry Torch 9810 is suited for business professionals and young movers – sleek and feature-laden.
The BlackBerry Torch 9810 boasts of an excellent touchscreen experience. Its accelerated graphics UI or more commonly known as Liquid Graphics, highly improved OS and its ultra responsive capability makes the BlackBerry Torch 9810 in line with the best of its kind in the market.
The BlackBerry Torch 9810’s 5 megapixels is good enough for snappers but capturing subjects in motion was proven hard. There is no front-facing camera too so video chatting is out of the list. However, the 720p HD video capture is commendable since users found its predecessor’s lack of HD video recording capabilities a disappointment. Its enhanced 1.2GHz single-core CPU that comes with a dedicated Adreno 205 GPU compensates for that however. In addition, the BlackBerry Torch 9810’s RAM is already 768 MB, way better than its predecessor’s 512 MB. The BlackBerry Torch 9810 also offers bigger internal storage of 8GB and faster Internet connectivity.
