Excellent condition, exactly as described and very prompt delivery. Thank you. Highly recommended.
With that said - By far the best part about this phone is the addition of a touch screen to its iconic form factor. It echoes of the original Bold 9000 design, which is a very good thing, but it has a number of improvements such as an even better keyboard. The touch screen makes it easier to navigate things quickly such as a list of songs, and the track pad enables precise navigation for clicking on small icons etc. The screen is also very sharp, 640 by 480 pixels and an impressive count of 285 pixels per inch. Watching videos on the screen, despite its relatively small size compared to full touch screen devices is actually quite pleasant when you watch videos on YouTube or your own videos. The device can play 720p videos (HD) and whilst some devices can do 1080p this is still very impressive. It can also record in 720p video which comes out looking very nice indeed with surprisingly good sound quality compared to older BlackBerry's.
Emailing, as it's BlackBerry, is of course fantastic and still remains by far the best on any phone and makes the respective equivalents on IOS and Android devices look worthless - you'll be glad to know it's still unbeatable. Also BBM 6 which is included or will be notified as an update is very good, and it is far better than any equivalent just like the email service. Continuing these high standards is the call quality - crisp and clear and no calls dropped. BlackBerry haven't forgotten who they are and are still the best in call quality as well in my opinion. Also the reception on the phone is very good and it consistently manages to get all 5 bars of signal strength.
Everything about this handset is top quality apart from one thing. The battery.
