Review: BlackBerry 9670 Style
The Style is a solid effort from RIM. It gets all the basics right. Battery life is epic, call quality is good, data speeds are acceptable, and the screens get the job done.
BlackBerries still aren't the media monsters that Android and iOS devices are, but that's not what they focus on. Most users will find the tools available to be good enough. The newer media player works well, and the gallery app is really good. Too bad the camera is a bit of a pain to deal with.
On the messaging front, the Style covers all the bases, and covers them well. With support for so many different messaging types, the options to configure communications is nearly endless and can be highly customized.
What really sets the Style apart from other BlackBerries and other smartphones in general is its form factor. Clamshell-style smartphones are a rare breed these days. RIM did a great job developing most of the hardware features, and the phone has a quality feel to it.
For Sprint customers, the Style is a very easy phone to recommend. It does everything the Bold does, but differently. It's pocket friendly, compact, and, er, well, "Style"-ish.
