Mediocre performance at best

from Brighthand (4 years ago)

Not to say that this is a useless device. Per the BlackBerry standard, it still has excellent email and communication capabilities, and some aspects of the new OS 7 interface are a step up from OS 6 and previous iterations. But I said this about the Bold 9930 and I'll say it about every other BlackB... More


A lame and misguided attempt from RIM

from BGR (4 years ago)

If you’re a BlackBerry fan with Verizon who just has to have an all touch device, the $200 BlackBerry Torch 9850 is obviously your only choice but it’s a pretty terrible one. Do yourself a favor: duct tape your busted old Curve back together and hold out for the BlackBerry Colt.

A tough sale unless your a BlackBerry enthusiast

from SprintFeed (4 years ago)

Unless you’re a true BlackBerry enthusiast, the Torch 9850 is a tough sale. It’s not a terrible phone, but it really is hard to recommend it over a device like the Samsung Conquer 4G, which has more to offer at a lower price. There are just too many blunders to overlook and I can’t... More

Another disappointment from RIM

from MobileBurn (4 years ago)

The BlackBerry Torch 9850 is a bit of an anomaly, much like RIM's previous efforts at an all-touchscreen smartphone. It won't appeal to the BlackBerry faithful, who likely demand a real, hardware QWERTY keyboard (and based on the virtual keyboard packaged with the 9850, rightfully so), and it isn't... More


The Torch 9850 simply can’t compete with other smartphones in the market

from BGR (4 years ago)

The 9850 is decent enough if you require a full touchscreen display, but if you need a BlackBerry and are on Sprint, I’d recommend the Bold 9930 any day, hands-down. It has the best keyboard I’ve ever used and the design is much more beautiful.RIM created the Torch 9850 to go toe-to-toe... More

It fills a glaring gap in RIM's device lineup

from Phone Scoop (4 years ago)

The BlackBerry Torch 9850 is a really solid smartphone. It's not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but it fills a glaring gap in RIM's device lineup. (It's a wholly different animal from the Storm/Storm 2 and much better than both of RIM's previous touch phones.)The 9850 is well-made, looks... More

Reasonably slim and feels well made

from Engadget (4 years ago)

We can't help but feel a bit underwhelmed by the Torch 9850. It's reasonably slim, feels well made and, aesthetics-aside, is certainly not a bad handset. The thing is, it just isn't as good as t'other Torch that's also been released today, the 9810, because a 3mm gain in thickness gets you a full ke... More


The onscreen keyboard underwhelms

from SlashGear (4 years ago)

With little in the way of must-have features, it’s tough to recommend the 9850 to those who would otherwise be considering an iPhone or Android device. RIM’s strength has always been in its text entry and messaging talents, but while the IM/BBM/email combo is present, the onscreen keyboa... More

Touchscreen form factor finally done right

from PhoneArena (4 years ago)

This is the device that RIM should’ve put out three years ago when they embarked on the touchscreen form factor with the original Storm 9530. As we know, the key to success in the industry is partly related to timing, and it’s remarkable to witness that RIM is finally coming around to pr... More
