About Blackberry 9790 – Quick Review
The first thing you would notice with BB Bold 6 is that it is very small in size. It’s only 2.45 inches. If you like pocketable and portable smartphone that you can use with one hand then it’s the perfect mobile phone for you.
The big plus about this blackberry smartphone model that a few fancy models of blackberry lack is autofocus in camera. Blackberry Bold 7 (9720) doesn’t have it. Even the popular Blackberry Bold 5 (9900) doesn’t have it either. Autofocus is a great feature for a camera phone to have. You especially notice the difference when you take a picture of things like ID card and receipts or anything that has text written on it. Recently when I was asked to electronically send an identification card for some verification, I simply used my Tab that has autofocus to snap my ID in the comfort of my home. The text on it appeared very sharp to read. Before the era of smartphones with good cameras this would have had me going to a café to scan the ID and send.
In daylight Bold 9790 takes great pictures. In low light with the flash on the photos are still fairly vivid.
BB Bold 9790 comes with a great physical QWERTY keyboard. Some dare to say it is the best keyboard ever to be put on a mobile phone. You may agree if like I’ve said you’re looking for a small size phone and you’re used to using one handed phones. Otherwise being so small you’re likely to find yourself causing a little at the keyboard. But like anything else it is something one gets used to after continuous usage.
The Bold 9790 Blackberry smartphone gives a great performance. The screen is responsive. It is snappy when navigating, opening and closing of apps etc.
It features the same resolution as Blackberry Bold 7 480 by 360 pixels. Although in memory it offers much more at 768MB RAM and 8GB internal storage that can be increased to 32 GB with a microSD card.
The battery is a great one. Under normal and moderately heavy usage the battery can last one day with some power left to carry you for a few hours the next day before you have to charge it again.
Like other fans of blackberry one thing you may not like about this phone is that it doesn’t have HD video recording. And when you consider that HD is the standard format for Youtube videos this could get you wondering what they were thinking not including this feature.
But aside that it doesn’t have HD video recording and like any other blackberry smartphone it has a little bit higher there and a little bit lower there in specs and features when compared to other Blackberry smartphones, the Blackberry Bold 9790 offers the standard features and specification you would expect in a blackberry 7 OS smartphone.
Bold 6 Blackberry smartphone is positioned as a lower end of bold alternative to Blackberry Bold 9900. The Bold 9900 model has better specs, better keyboard and better design, but the 9790 is a dependable phone, performance wise.
If you’re not specifically looking for a small screen blackberry phone then Bold 9900 is a better alternative to Bold 9790.
