BlackBerry Torch 9810
Advantages: touchscreen, qwerty keyboard, good memory, has flash on the camera
Disadvantages: freezes often, keys are to small an close together
I've had this phone in red for about a year now. Since I got it I haven't had to take it for repair once. I've dropped it countless times and the screen is still intact with no sign of damage which shows its quite a sturdy phone, the only signs of damage are chips in the outer case which is easily replaceable. It has a good camera but it doesn't focus well when the flash isn't on. There is a torch that can be used when video recording. Most blackberry's have terrible battery life but this phone lasts for a long time and only needs charging about once a day. Its a touch screen phone so its easy to use and this is bonus if the scrolled breaks ( which is a common problem in blackberry's ) because you will still be able to use the phone. One problem with it being touch screen is that it if the phone is left unlocked in your pocket or bag a lot you can accidentally call or text people which can be embarrassing. there are two buttons on the top one locks the phone the other plays music. It is very convenient for them to be at the top because they are often used and easier to use, but because they're at the top again if your phone gets knocked or nudged in you bag/pocket your phone will unlock or play music. if you were interested in this phone and getting it on contract I suggest if your planning to use blackberry messenger ( bbm ) that you get the minimum number of texts because I find I hardly text anyone because I use bbm. Its a slide up phone with a large screen which is good for those who prefer phones with large screens. Also it has a qwerty keyboard which I find easy to use and when the phone is closed there is a touch screen keypad on the lower half of the screen. One disadvantage of the keys are that they are quite small and it easy to make mistakes whilst typing because they're also quite close together. An advantage of they keys are that they light up so when its dark you can still see which letters are where. when you turn the phone landscape the screen also turns landscape which is useful when watching videos on your phone, online and from youtube. It has quite good memory and lots of space for music and photos. Unfortunately the speakers on the phone are poor and the music doesn't sound the best and isn't the loudest out load, but when you use earphones / headphones it sounds perfectly fine. As i have had it for around a year my phone has started to get slower and it freezes often, but i recommend this phone because even though it has a few disadvantages on the whole its a very good phone and will last for quite a while. it would be the perfect christmas or birthday present.
Summary: Overall a very good phone despite a few problems
