BlackBerry Torch 9860 Review

A Glimpse:

All those who are looking for a full touchscreen smartphone with valuable features and an affordable cost should buy BlackBerry Torch 9860. It is an elegant phone with an appreciable build quality and a delightful performance. With BB OS version 7.0 under the hood and 1.2 GHz of processing power, the phone functions extremely well and gives you the desired output.

The phone is very efficient for messaging, browsing the internet and taking good quality photos. In addition, it is considerably budget-friendly. The BlackBerry Torch 9860 price in Pakistan is significantly low and middle class buyers can easily go for it.

Here are some of the main reasons why you should opt for this great Smartphone.

A Superb Display on Touchscreen:

In spite of having the largest touchscreen display, the BlackBerry Torch 9860 price is not as high as expected. With an amazing 3.7 inches of size, the screen gives plenty of space to users for text input as well as a great experience while viewing videos, playing games or browsing the internet. This TFT capacitive technology makes the screen more responsive to your touch gestures as compared to the outdated TFT resistive technology. Moreover, the screen also responds to multi-touch gestures.

The wonderful display is extremely pleasing not only because of its large size, but also due to its sharpness and clarity. A resolution of 400 by 800 pixels is accompanied by a pixel density of 252 ppi—perfect for the size of this screen. In addition, 16 Million colors enhance the brightness, bringing immense vividness to the display.

Ease of Use:

As far as messaging is concerned, the virtual QWERTY keyboard is very convenient to use with its sufficiently spaced virtual keys. You can use this keyboard in both the landscape as well as the portrait mode depending on how you are holding the phone.

Impressive Camera Quality:

The 5 MP camera of the smartphone captures even very small details in photos. This high resolution, therefore, contributes towards the high quality of pictures which are really clear and life-like. For indoor and low-light photography, use the LED flash to add brightness to the captured scenes.

Additional features of the camera include face detection, autofocus, geo-tagging and image stabilization. Your pictures will, therefore, come out great. You will also be able to tag them according to the shooting location and share them with loved ones.

A Great Device for Entertainment:

The Smartphone brings lots of entertainment to you in the form of a great media player, fast connectivity and browsing, and several preinstalled apps & games. The internet, in turn, brings several other means of entertainment, such as social networking and video streaming. Connect either through Wi-Fi or 3G and have fun sharing photos, sending emails, updating status and much more all the day long. Your communication with friends and other acquaintances will be uninterrupted due to these two connectivity options.

Among the pre-installed apps are social feeds, maps and media player. Plus, the App Store is open for you to download a number of free applications both for fun and utility. Download chatting apps, photo editors or games for unlimited fun. You have 4 GB of storage space to accommodate all the downloaded stuff. In addition, 32 GB of extra space can also be used through the available slot for memory card.

Bottom Line:

This mid-priced phone offers a lot of features to users which give value for money. The best of technology has been used in order to ensure a worthwhile experience. Plus, the hardware components are also worth the cost. Therefore, as the final words, it is suggested that you do give this phone a chance if you are looking for a new Smartphone for yourself.
