Torch 9850 or Bold 9930 (with qwerty)?


Dec 31, 2011, 1:22 AM
I'm researching Smart Phones. Given that I'm still in the stone age (flip phone), I'm not going to be very big on apps or screen size. I've settled on BB. The major difference I see between the Bold 9930 and Torch 9850 is the physical vs virtual keyboard? I wont be doing emails on the phone but a little texting. Which one is a better choice?

One of the things that sold me on full touch screen phones was just being able to use the phone easier on them. The dial pad is large and easy to use when you want the phone.
The dial pad on a Bold is a little bit smaller.

The Bold 9930 is going to give you a better experience if you email and text frequently. You will be making less mistakes while typing because the keyboard give you great feedback. The torch does try to compensate with software that corrects as you type. Some find that annoying and others a lifesaver.
The Torch 9850 in my opinion would be a better experience if you are not a heavy typer and more like to read and keep track of emails and texts. There is more screen "real estate" to read them on.

Hope that helps som...

Thank you Hawkeye. I stopped at the store for a few minutes and looked at both. I'm leaning towards the Torch 9850.
