Blackberry Bold 9900
Advantages: great & fast performance, fast browser, and elegant design
Disadvantages: poor battery life and no auto focus
I have bought this blackberry for about 5 months ago. Well i would say that at first i was forced to buy it for my office purposes. But then i realized that this smartphone was quite attractive for me. From what i can see, relying on a wide and comfortable QWERTY keyboard, and also supported by a capasitive touch screen, the BlackBerry Bold 9900 offers something different than its predecessor. Equipped with a 1.2 Ghz processor, the performance of BlackBerry Bold 9900 is quite a satisfactory.
Design of the BlackBerry Bold 9900 looks quite elegant. Glance similar to its predecessor, the BlackBerry Bold 9000, but 9900 is more slim (10.5 mm only) and lighter (130 grams). 9900 Bold design is also much wider and elegant than Bold 9000. Look at the front there is a screen measuring 2.8 inches with a resolution of 640x480 pixels. There are four physical keys and a sensitive trackpad on its navigation menu row. Its full QWERTY keyboard is very tender and comfortable for typing. Well you can't simply resist the BlackBerry Bold 9900's round bezel, wrapped with stainless steel that adds an elegant effect of the Bold 9900. Back side of Bold 9900 seems minimalist. The battery cover is made from lightweight plastic with carbon black motif, with the BB logo in the middle of it. All around the battery cover there is a black doff frame making a better grip.
Bold 9900's operating system is using the BlackBerry OS 7, the latest version currently released by RIM. If you ever use the device with OS 6 might not be too familiar to see the OS 7 of 9900 Bold. 2.8-inch & 640x480 pixel screen makes the operating system looks not too big and not too small, so the image produced by the screen is quite sharp and bright. With the support of a capacitive touch screen and trackpad, exploring the menu on the BlackBerry Bold 9900 is easier and faster.
Well for the superiority of the messaging system on this blackberry is still the blackberry messenger, which is contained already in the device. It facilitates communication, making communications run very simple and easy, especially if you are a person with high mobilization.
The camera resolution of the BlackBerry Bold 9900 is 5 MP. Well I ain't saying if it is a good one, but I would say that this is enough for people who only need occasional camera features, just like me. Unfortunately the auto focus feature is missing from this phone. Too bad that RIM forgot to put auto focus feature on this phone. Image result of Bold 9900's camera is bright enough and has a good color I think, but once again, unfortunately there is no auto focus feature.
The browser gets a meaningful improvement over the previous generation. Loading and rendering speed is very good, making it easier to done my job or just searching for some informations. And bowser on the BlackBerry Bold 9900 is able to open 25 web pages simultaneously and still be added if desired. Supported by a touch screen is making it facilitates the process of scrolling, swiping, and zooming (pinch zoom) by a touch of your fingers.
Well the battery of Bold 9900 is not good enough as other features. Bold 9900 only lasts 10-13 hours by an intense using with a fairly dense and activities connected with the BIS (Blackberry Internet Service).
Thx for reading
