Blackberry Bold 9900
Advantages: Works fast and have a good performance.
Disadvantages: The battery is so weak.
I can say that I'm a little bit fanatic with Blackberry. Since Blackberry Bold 9000 generation, I always choose blackberry as my smartphone. So of course when they released Bold 9900, I feel I really need to try this phone especially because I disappointed with the last blackberry I used before this which is Torch 9800. And now here I am, I've already used this smartphone for about 3 months now.
This blackberry offers you a better features then the older version. It offers you a better processor, bigger memory, higher OS, good camera (5 MP with flash), HD video and so many more. But I think all of this features you can search and find it on the internet, LOL. What I really want to discuss in this review is my opinion about the plus-minus of this smartphone based on my 3 months experience using it. For your information, I've also used Torch 9800 and Bold 9870 before so I'll use the experience of using that phones as the comparison with this Bold 9900. So here is my opinion about the plus-minus of Bold 9900.
First is the plus part :
- Works fast. Its response is much better then the older generation. When i use it for browsing, I've never browse faster than this with other blackberry.
- The touchscreen features is quite responsive and fun to use
- For me this Bold is quite fashionable and looks elegant
- The keyboard is very comfortable to use. No other blackberry's keyboard is better than this.
- Other good features that you can find on the internet, LOL.
Now it's the minus part :
- The worst part of this Blackberry is the battery. It's quite fast to run out. If you are an active user (chatting, browsing, listening music, etc), I'm pretty sure at least you have to charged your battery for 2-3 times a day.
- Although it works fast for the first time, after you use it for a while the performance will be weaker and work slower. But after you restart the phone it goes back work fast again. And this cycle will repeat again and again. (by the way i have about 1000 pictures, 100 songs and other small files on my phone. I don't know if this kind of thing have something to do with this problem or not)
- Bold 9900 has 5 MP camera but it doesn't have auto focus feature so in certain condition (like in a dark place or taking picture from quite long distance) you won't get the best picture.
There's all my opinion. Overall I'm quite pleased using this smartphone. Despite its weak battery this phone has a good performance and works much better than other blackberry type that I've ever used.
Summary: If you're a Blackberry lover, especially the Bold type, I'm pretty sure you'll love using Bold 9900.
