BlackBerry Bold 9790 Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

At first glance, the BlackBerry Bold 9790 looks like a typical BlackBerry handset meant for the business user or the textaholics- the famous full QWERTY keypad along with a solid form. It offers the user the best of both worlds- a capacitive touchscreen combined with a comfortable physical QWERTY keypad, although in a smaller form compared to the BlackBerry Bold 9900.

The Bold 9790 is the stripped-down version of the Bold 9900 featuring a smaller display at 2.45-in, a less powerful 1GHz processor and 768MB of RAM. The handset runs on BlackBerry OS 7 which is not really a big whoop though a significant improvement on the OS 6. The BlackBerry Bold 9790 sports a 5-megapixel camera, typical of most high-end BlackBerry handsets in recent times. The camera takes good pictures even in bad conditions, thanks to the LED flash. Unfortunately, HD video recording is not allowed. Overall, the BlackBerry Bold 9790 is short of the Bold 9900 in more than one aspect but it really doesn’t look that different, keeping in mind that the former is cheaper than the latter. 

User Interface and UI functionality

If you’re a long-time BlackBerry loyalist, the user interface of the Bold 9790 should feel just like home to you. Unfortunately, if you’ve been using either an Android or iOS device, you are likely to feel frustrated with the interface on the Bold 9790. Its small icons and tiny elements give the user the feeling that the whole interface is simply too small for even a display as tiny as this one. Also the interface is far from intuitive, with a lot of wandering required before you figure out how to navigate through. The user experience feels a bit outdated but if you’re a BlackBerry enthusiast already, you shouldn’t have too many complaints. As expected, the e-mail experience is splendid and you also get a decent calendar for organizing your agenda. Of course, BBM is always there and is as good as it gets. 

Multimedia features

You probably won’t want an alternative media player since the stock Music app handles the task very well, playing anything you may throw at it. Also, you get a really useful search bar that combs your music library for your search item and provides results in real-time. Functionality is great, with the volume rocker being able to not only adjust volume but also to switch tracks-  even if the app is running in background mode.

Unfortunately, thevideo player is not much of a success since it struggles to play any video having a resolution that exceeds 800 x 480 pixels. However, it does support the DivX/ Xvid formats. And since you probably won’t be watching too many videos on a screen as tiny as this, you shouldn’t mind its poor handling of 720p video. 

Pictures and Video quality

As the device features only a 2.45-inch screen, you probably will have to squint to see pictures clearly (merely exaggerating for effect!). As mentioned before, video quality is below par as the video player finds it difficult to play videos having a resolution of more than 800 x 480 pixels. And you can forget about watching 720p HD video since not only does it struggle through playback, you won’t really enjoy the experience on such a tiny screen. 

Internet support

The BlackBerry Bold 9790 packs a decent punch when it comes to internet support. You can browse the Web either on Wi-Fi a/b/g/n connectivity or on its fast 7.2 Mbps 3G radio. Over and above that, your instant messaging needs are more than satisfied with the famous BBM pre-installed on the handset.

However, the browser is just above average. It sometimes lags while loading pages and moreover, does not feature support for Adobe Flash. Also, the text reflow functionality screws up at times, leaving out some of the paragraphs out of the display region. The optical trackpad comes in useful when you want to simply scroll around a webpage or to hover above certain page elements using the tiny cursor. Pinch to zoom and tap to zoom work very well. 

Internal and External Memory

The Bold 9790 offers 8GB of internal storage, which can be expanded further by microSD upto 16GB. All in all, ample space for all your files and applications, though things would have been more roomy with 32GB microSD support. 

Applications and Gaming

You will need to subscribe to the BlackBerry Internet Service in order to access most of the BlackBerry applications and services. Once you get that done, you will have access to all BlackBerry apps. Among the apps that come pre-installed on the Bold 9790 include Facebook and Twitter, Documents To Go, which is an easy way to handle most of the common document files, and even a file manager.  In case BBM proves to be inadequate for you, you get many other IM clients like Windows Messenger, Google Talk and Yahoo! Messenger to ensure you have a thorough messaging experience. 

Battery Backup

The BlackBerry Bold 9790 is powered by a 1230 mAh battery that will let you squeeze out around 5 hours of talktime. That is obviously no big whoop since you’ll get cheaper smartphones that will easily last much longer. In addition, you get 17 days of standby time which is more than enough for a phone of this category. 

Connectivity Offered

RIM has done a pretty good job with the Bold 9790 as far as connectivity features are concerned. For connecting to the internet, you have the option of using either Wi-Fi a/b/g/n connectivity or 7.2Mbps 3G radio. Other connectivity features include Bluetooth 2.1, A-GPS, NFC support and of course, FM radio. Moreover, the handset supports mass storage mode  so transferring files between your phone and your handset is a breeze. 


The BlackBerry Bold 9790 is the stripped-down version of the BlackBerry Bold 9900 so it makes sense to put to see how they compare. First of all, the Bold 9790 features a smaller screen compared to the Bold 9900. Also, its processor, at 1 GHz, falls short of the Bold 9900’s 1.2 GHz processor. However, in other aspects, both handsets are literally head-to-head but obviously, at Rs. 23,800, the Bold 9790 is cheaper than the Bold 9900, which costs Rs. 30,350.
