On all of the websites that you go to look at new phones, there are lists and lists of why their phone is the newest and the greatest and why you should but their phone instead of a competitor’s phone. You can find lists and lists of specs on the phone, most of which you have no idea what it means or why it would be important to have in a phone, and more information than you know what to do with. But there has to be something wrong with the phone doesn’t there? No phone is perfect, no matter how much the manufacturer believes so. But it can sometimes be difficult to find honest opinions. The best place to look is consumer reviews. Here are some negatives that the consumer has mentioned about the new BlackBerry Torch 9810.
Same Old, Same Old
A major complaint that many people seem to have is that there just doesn’t seem to be anything different about the new BlackBerry Torch compared to the other BlackBerry phones that are already on the market. If you already have a BlackBerry then it really isn’t worth it to spend more money to get a new phone and end up with one that is pretty much exactly like the one that you already have. There really is no reason to spend the money. On the other hand, if you like the BlackBerry design and would like to have a newer phone that is just like the one that you have, then this might be the choice for you.
One of the selling points that Blackberry uses for this new phone is that the touch screen is very sensitive and easy to use. But the consumer has other thoughts on that point of sale. They agree that the touch screen is very sensitive; in fact it is way too sensitive. You can easily hang up on calls if your cheek touches the screen while talking to friends and family. It is hard to touch the correct numbers and letters on the screen when you are making calls or sending text messages. You have to make sure that the phone is locked so that you aren’t dialing and calling random people while the phone is in your pocket. Most people are not very fond of the sensitive touch screen.
Another complaint that consumers have about this new BlackBerry phone is the back battery cover on the phone. The complaint is that the cover is really cheap and that it doesn’t do a very good job at protecting the back of the phone. Just by dropping the phone once or twice, which we have all done, sometimes on a daily basis, the back battery case is ruined. Sometimes the consumer is able to use the old back cover from a previous version of a BlackBerry phone. But for this to work you have to have had a BlackBerry phone in the past. If you aren’t lucky enough to have that option, then you will just have to suffer through it.
