Great phone worth buying

Blackberry Bold 9900
Advantages: Blackberry messenger, good socialising phone.
Disadvantages: The battery can play up in a couple of ways and phone can freeze.
This phone is a great socialising phone, is has many different applications you can download and install onto the phone.
I found the keys quite difficult to use as they are quite small but after about a month of having the phone i was typing texts and emails with ease.
This phone has both a touch screen and blackberries very own scroll button which they have on their phones, this is helpful for people which dont particularly get on with touch screen phones so they have the option of both.
The touch screen is very responsive and very well calibrated so customers do not get stressed or annoyed when the phone opens up something completely different to what they wanted to click on.
Some down points on this phone are sometimes it can completely freeze and take ages to start responding again, so i often have to remove the battery and place it back it, also the batttery life after a while starts to drain relatively quickly, not so much of that of an iphone but can still be a nuisance.
also the battery can decide not to charge and will turn off and not charge at all, so the battery has to be removed for about 5 minutes.
The speaker on the blackberry isn't very loud, it is good quality music but sometimes can be difficult to hear what's going on, when headphones are plugged into the jack then the quality and volume is fine.
The design of the phone itself is quite appealing as it has a very metallic look with a chrome finish.
The main usage of a blackberry is the blackberry messenger which is the most commonly used messenger and is the main reason that people but blackberry.
Summary: Good phone, but could do with a few improvements.
