Advanced Communication Tool With Social Media Integration

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Created: 27/08/11
This is a fantastic device and the daddy of communication. The os6 from blackberry has given these devices a much needed new lease of life. The email client is the key feature of this product and it integrates very well well throughout the menus.

RIM have introduced all aspects of social media and included
twitter, facebook, msn, yahoo etc etc and all these conversations can be viewed in the messages as threaded conversations.

The display is vibrant and the light sensor does an excellent job of adjusting the display brightness.

The web browser has been given a much needed update with the introduction of the web kit browser, html other interactive content renders very well.

The keypad is my favourite and the placement of keys is perfect, the optical mouse is spot on, it can be adjusted to suit needs.

The call quality is excellent and the hands free loudspeaker feature works very well in conference calls ,the microphone pics up very well.

Those who want a large screen and otuch screen features will obviously knock this device back, but one could argue the battery life is fantastic and the unit is fit for purpose.

Packed with bluetooth 2.0, wirless and a decent camera, all designed in to a small candy bar form factor make this a true communication tool which will go on when other devices are looking for a power source, remember that !!

Bottome line is, this phone is a MUST HAVE.

First of all let me give a brief history of my mobile phones; Nokia (3 times), Samsung, Nokia again, XpressMusic Nokia, and then finally, Blackberry Curve.

I had never previously been into any of the 'smartphones&apos​; even the ones my beloved Nokia were producing. I loved the touchscreen, i loved the simplicity Nokia brought to their phones. More importantly, i loved their all-around performance.
With that said, i was cautious when picking up my new Blackberry Curve way back in 2009. I mainly got it because everyone seemed to want one,but then i curious to know what a 'BB' was all about, and yes, it was all about the right things!

Simplicty? Check. Durabilty? Check. Solid All-around? Well, apart from the hideous camera, CHECK MATE. The BB blew me away. I gave away my Nokia Xpress5530 without any hesistation. The BB was that good.

But after using the Curve for nearly 2years, it was long overdue to step up to the more 'premium' Blackberry Bold. As a longtime Blackberry user now, i know a good BB when i see one, and this Bold BB 9780, is as good as it gets.

The feel is luxurious. The phone is not heavy, infact it is the same size and weight of the Curve, with even more features which include (finally) a very good 5MP camera.

BB's are known for their ease of use and this does not disappoint. It is simple, easy, and very fun to use. The screen resolution is incredible, the phone itself is very responsive, oh, and its 3G so mobile internet is actually quiet fast.

The only negative i can think of is the lack of quality FREE add-ons from the AppWorld. Every top-of-the-range mobile these days needs Apps that take it from 'great' to 'really fu*kin awesome'. The iPhone has those apps, the BB's do not. That is no knock on the phone itself, the phone is 5star, the Appworld is not.

Battery life is very good on this BB compared to previous versions. I will charge this every 3 days if i can manage to keep playing music at a minimum, otherwise, i will charge every 2 days. The Curve's battery life was poor, so compared to those previous versions, the BB 9780 is a major improvement in that department.

All-around the phone is 5star. A++. The white BB looks that bit more luxurious than the Black alternative. It is super sleek, fast, easy to use, great camera, perfect size and weight, and just a fun phone to own. I will be keeping this for years!

Dont upgrade from a 9700 - skip to a 9790 or 9900 and cross your fingers

I have to say for those of you reading this - despite what I will say I have to let you know I love this little phone.
Its size, shape, weight etc is ideal - feels perfect in my hand.

Now onto the real reviewing -

I thought an upgrade from the 9700 would have brought a little more than it did. The better camera is great but hardly noticeable and the upgraded ram - well I cant even tell - it stills run rather slowly.
The os 6 software has brought some improvements im sure but I think just a stable version of os 5 would have been better.

Im having constant connection issues as I always did with the 9700. It seems like internet connectivity isnt constant. There should be an 'always on' mode like for android phones who, Im assuming must have suffered the same problem in early days.

RIM has no excuse for this considering the phone is internet based for all users. They have been manufacturing for a lot longer than some.

I look forward to being able to upgrade again to the 9790 or 9900 - fingers crossed that egg timer wont be a constant pain in my bum. And that I will actually be able to surf the internet...

Great phone

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great phone for business and personal use.
5MP Camera with LED Flash
Running OS 6 and all Blackberry features including BBM and Blackberry App World
Quick to connect to the internet
Great for social networking; Facebook, Twitter ETC.
The battery has been used on mine so doesn't last too well but new batteries can last for days with constant use of phone.
I bought this phone as I wanted to upgrade from my Nokia C3 but still wanted a QWERTY keyboard which is another great feature.
For somebody who is familiar with technology, I have found this phone harder than normal to adjust to and learn how to use. Although this is expected of a phone with this much content.
All round great phone for people with busy lives as the Blackberry can be a great organizer and helps me a great deal with my job as I can easily access my emails and the internet. Great Phone.
