Blackberry Bold 9900
Advantages: touch screen and buttons!
Disadvantages: battery life, freezes etc.
I got my blackberry bold 9900 in September, and fell in love with it straight away, you couldn't get me away from it. Loved the bigger buttons, the choice of touch screen and the scroll button, the flash on the camera, how smart it looked. But as time went on little problems started occurring. It would keep freezing and wouldn't unfreeze for at least fifteen minutes, which would really wind me up. Sometimes the only way is to take out the battery for 2 minutes and put it back in again, which is a real nuisance. (it still does it now!!) But the most annoying thing is sometimes it just won't charge, the phone will completley turn off, and a red light will appear, and it will not charge. Again I have to take the battery out but for longer, and put it back in again. But because I charge my phone when i am sleeping, I won't realise until the next morning that it didn't charge and then it's too late so my phone dies so quick during the day. That is another problem, my phone will be half dead by, about 1 oclock, the battery does not last at all. Although saying all this, I still do love my phone, it has good apps, a nice range of text styles and themes, you can get great covers and cases for it, and does everything i want it to, when it does want to work properly haha :) People keep persuading me to buy an iphone instead, but I don't like phones with touch screens as much, and this phone you have the choice of both, the best of both worlds! :) A lot of people have problems with blackberrys but I think this model of it has the least problems. Hope this helps!
Summary: Great phone, just like a mini computer, but has it's problems!
