4.0 out of 5 stars what a STORM, 30 Nov. 2009
This review is from: Vodafone Blackberry Storm 9500 1GB (Wireless Phone Accessory)
Back in 2006/7 Blackberry seemed to burst onto the scene - all my bosses had the very business like ones
Earlier this may I upgraded my phone. I searched for a long time and went for this. After 6 months it's been an excellent choice and I have few gripes to note.

Looks: The Storm grabs you first by it appearence, it's sleek and very cool. It looks business like in a cool 'James Bond' way!
Sound - my rigntones are songs i have transferred over from my ipod - the sound is good, clean and loud. Ring tones are crisp and clear. Vibration is good too and the LED light is a good 'alert' as well

The Screen: This is the STORMS big 'feature' the click touch screen! This was what made me wait to buy rather then jump in! But no fear - the tehnology works. My first few mnessages and emails took a while to do but once I had used the phone for a few dasy I got into the 'click' I can type as quickly as on a nurmal phone and love the choice of quick type, and querty options. The screen is big and clear - like a ipod touch for instance. The click does take some getting used to. But now I am very comfortable with it. But it can be fiddly at 1st...be warned!

Internet & connectivity: The STORMS majoy failing is it doesn't have wifi....WHAT! yes indeed. apparently rectified for STORM 2. This really does let the phone down and is the major reason for the 4 stars & not 5 The 3G connection is excellent and the phone is very clever so - if you cant get 3G it acceses 2G or a mixture and thus you still get super quick data connections

Battery Life: Again a gripe for some but not me - theer is a simple method here.....if you use the phone for EVERYTHING - i.e. lots of media the battery dies quickly! But if like me you are a 'sensible user' and understand the concept of the more you use the phone and for more activities the shorter the battery you'll be fine. I charge mine daily but it can comfortable last 24-48 hours.

The extras: The apps work well but are some way behind iphone/ipod touch mainly business focussed just now but expanding all th time, I have a memory card in mine and this really boosts the memory - although the phone meomry is good. The camera is clean and clear with a good flash an the video qulity is good also - but remember it's a camera in a phone...not a phone in a camera! The Maps app works very well and is simple and clear to use a major plus. The iphone is probable the better all round package but i do like the STORM and it will continue to get better.
