Blackberry Torch 9810 review

This BlackBerry Torch 9810 is really fast, moving between apps or scrolling through a website or viewing email is really faster and smoother without any lag. The 5 MP Camera is good enough and with flash it gets even better.

If you have used BlackBerry phones before the new technology that has been incorporated will really amaze you. Though the price is on a bit higher side,  If I have the money, I would have ditched the Android for the BB Torch 9801.
