BlackBerry needs to stand out from the competition by manufacturing competitive products of price/hardware/innovation. The company can start by applying the formula from its Playbook tablet into its Smartphones. In addition to that, the generalization of the swipe effect can also be a big plus for the company should they decide to do so.
At a thickness of 11.5mm, the BlackBerry Torch 9860 seems to be thicker than the previous model which stands at 10mm only. In addition to that, like the previous version, there are four keys under its 4-inch screen.
BlackBerry still shows the lack of innovativeness with this particular phone. Torch 9860 has a 3.7 inch TFT display but it should be noted that this particular type of display was actually the norm for Android hones in the year 2010. Even the AMOLED technology, which is clearly superior to the TFT display, was already the norm for a lot of phones in 2011. iPhone 4 in compensation brought in an astonishing resolution and now more than a year after the official launch of the famous retina display with 640x960 pixels. SGS II comes in first place thanks to a display with excellent contrast, generously sized.
The most tangible evidence is that iPhone 4S is helped by over 500,000 applications in the App store. However it is notable that they brought 512 MB RAM, Dual-core 1 GHz Cortex-A9 and 16/34/64 GB of storage. We tested the 1.5 GHz processor on HTC Flyer and seemed slightly anemic as the processing power offered. SGS II rules here from a distance. iPhone will recover in version 5 which is expected to have a 1.5 GHz dual core and 4-inch display.
4. Operating System
BlackBerry OS 7.0 vs. Android vs. iOS - Although RIM has a greater experience as compared with the two, it still failed to attract application developers. Google relies on a large number of handsets and monetization is done often through advertisements and also by offering free applications in its App store. Its monetization is also available through paid apps. BB 7.0 on the other hand has no added advantage as compared with the two OS.
All have 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 3.5 mm jack. SGS II stands out with the 3G embedded module which provides consistent network speeds up to 21 Mbps, 14.4 Mbps on Torch 9860 and 14.4 Mbps on iPhone 4S. Of course, this depends on the internet speed, network service and tariff allowances. For great value take a look at SIM-only offers.
I have seen how iPhone 4 and Galaxy S II work. I do not think the RIM phone has a powerful camera sensor. Samsung Galaxy S II is the only one that offers full HD video recording and if you take a look at the samples from the device, you can really see some impressive results.
The average battery life of the iPhone 4S is between a day and a half to two days. In typical use made of web surfing, e-mails, watching videos and telephone conversations, the phone can last for about seven hours. The disadvantage is that the battery is integrated and cannot be changed easily – troublesome, especially if repairs are needed.
Samsung Galaxy S II
The Galaxy S II has a range of one and a half days, in typical use has a slightly lower autonomy than the iPhone 4S. Instead, Samsung boasts with the longest talk times of 900 and 1800 MHz networks and UMTS networks, as well as an interchangeable battery.
BlackBerry Torch 9860
The battery (1230mAh) is an average for a gadget. Talk time is at 4:30 hours and 6 hours video playback. It is similar to the one used in the BlackBerry Bold.
BlackBerry with 9860 doesn't bring anything new to the fight with a veteran like iPhone 4S and a true Smartphone like Samsung Galaxy S II which many declared it the performance champion of the 2011.
