There have been a number of new Blackberry phones making their way on to the market in a relatively short space of time which leads us to wonder whether they really are that different. The 9800 and 9810 do not seem to be that different so when the 9850 was released I knew that I just had to take a closer look to see if this model was a step up from the rest.
The Torch 9850 from Blackberry is quite a bit faster than the 9810 thanks to the increased memory and faster processing speed and although Blackberry are not one of the greatest providers of memory, there is the capacity with the Torch 9850 to add a microSD card. Let’s take a look at some of the phones features and specifications:
- With 8GB of local storage you will have plenty of memory for those music tracks you need and the pictures you want to take. If you should find that 8GB is not enough then you can easily add more by way of a Micro SD card than can give you up to a whopping 32 GB.
- Your 9850 come with 768 Mega-bytes of RAM and even though this is a lot less than other makes of phones, it is still quite a considerable amount and should be sufficient to keep us all happy.
- With a 1.2 GHz processor the CPU works hard and fast to get this beauty running for us at a speed that doesn’t disappoint.
- The Blackberry Torch 9850 is the first Blackberry to be connected to the 4G network which is said to be the network of the future, so while other phones are still working on the 3G network and are trailing behind, the torch 9850 is well ahead and looking to the future. (the Bold 9900 is running on 4G with T-Mobile, however, it doesn’t benefit from the full 4G experience.)
- With a 3.2 inch touch screen you have plenty of room to work with.
- The 9850 operates using the Blackberry OS 7 software which is faster and smoother than the other Blackberry operating systems.
- Being Wi-Fi enabled means that you can make calls over the Wi-Fi system if your carrier lets you do this.
- With a 5 Mega-pixel camera you can get some great shots.
- And last but not least typing is made easier with the ‘virtual key design’
Torch 9850 vs. 9810
Because it’s much faster than the 9810, the 9850 is a much better phone to have and you will no longer have to put up with apps that just don’t work because of the size of the screen, although the memory capacity of the 9810 is the same as the 9850 you may wonder what all the fuss is about, but with a faster processing speed on the later model you can use your phone quicker and with much less hassle so you save time when you need it the most.
Whatever service provider you choose for your Blackberry Torch 9850, you will find that the speeds are somewhat the same, I have found that Verizon is slightly faster than Sprint and T-mobile but it’s not a huge amount and it shouldn’t prevent you from buying a phone from any of those service providers.
Whoever you decide to sign up with, you can be sure to get a great looking Blackberry Torch 9850 that works fast and hard for you while it operates on the network of the future.
