  • Budget BlackBerry 9720 winds clock back to BB 7, but who`s biting?
    Simon Hill
    12 Nov 2013 | techradar

    The announcement of the BlackBerry 9720 was not met with widespread excitement, largely because it is running the older BlackBerry 7 operating system and not BlackBerry 10. The company has repeatedly pointed out that there`s life in the old BB7 yet. Is it right, or is this an unwelcome step backwards? We got hold of the handset to find out. See, we literally got hold of it Before we jump into the underwhelming specs it`s important to note that th...

    Pros: Good battery life, Physical keyboard, MicroSD slot, BlackBerry security,

    Cons: Lack of apps, Slow, dated interface, Small display, Looks and feels cheap,

    Verdict: It`s slow. It`s dated. The display is tiny. There aren`t many apps. It looks and feels cheap. It runs the older BlackBerry 7, not the newer BlackBerry 10. And people wonder why BlackBerry`s in trouble. Better phones are widely available....

    It`s worth pointing out that the Canadian device maker was able to increase its market share in emerging markets like India, South East Asia and Africa by selling cheaper devices running its legacy OS at a time when it was being ditched by customers in mature markets like the US and Europe with the rise of Android and iOS. It priced the BlackBerry 10 devises much higher, positioning them in the premium segment, so new devices based on older versi...

    Overall: Pls..If u want to compare a BB with android and ios or windows kill yourself.nn1. RAM : nLearn that every OS uses a specific amount of RAM for the performance..Nokia has only 512mb RAM for its devices upto 20000. WHY? because Windows uses only that level of ram, whereas an android even if it has 1Gb ram sometimes get struck. So, 512 MB RAM is good enough for a BB OS platform..I've used all platforms and yes there is no problem with 512MB ram. u can peacefully multitask.nn2. ProcessornYes,the processor is a Tag less..but works flawlessly.nn3. BB os 7.nMost of the people who use prefer OS 7 as it gives you more security and u can use unlimited internet for 400rs now it's 1gb for 129 on many platforms. OS 10 gives you android apps the features have to be altered and so unlimited internet cannot be given to OS 10.. Even though 10 is a touch advanced..there are many benefits with OS 7. U will know if u use a BB with OS 7 and OS 10.nn4. Apps.nnAn android Facebook uses 17MB of ur internal memory and occupies more RAM.nA blackberry Facebook app uses only 3MB of internal memory. nSo please dont complain about internal memory or RAM,. It is a mere platform difference.nn5. GamesnThis brand is not for please stayaway.nn6.FeelnFeel the QWERTY and see it's magic. Typing feast.nnPlease try to respect every brand and dont compare with androids and other platforms as BB stands out in many aspects and gives you a better feel of a smartphone..nAndroid requires high specs to run smoothly..u can only find a decent android for 10k not less than that..most of them are cheap if under the 10k segment although they work fine ..there is no guarantee. BB Is a global brand known for its compact mobiles although slightly costly..nnLearn things before generally commenting and comparing, just because it has a higher specification does not mean it is better, may be its because it needs it to work..and having a low specification does not mean its crap, may be it's only because it's needs less..

    Overall: I bought this phone about month ago, though not from Flipkart. I have used a BB 9790, 9900 and Curve 3G before, and this has surely been the best till now. It has the following features:nn1. Touchscreen - best touchscreen i have used.n2. Qwerty keyboard - is a straight keyboard unlike the other curved ones, and spaced out keys that makes in very easy to type. The keyboard is identical to the one on q5.n3. FM - has an inbuilt radio.n4. 5 MP camera - not too great.n6. 1450 mAh battery - lasts an entire day with 3g... excellent.n7. I like the build quality and the cover at the back has an amazing design making it very easy to grip.n8. Finally the price is what attracted me... I am a bbm user and for 16k there is no bb as good as this with these specsnnSo finally, if u like a good well built phone, that looks amazing, is moderately fast, provides good social networking... then this is the phone for u !
