Good points:
I love the fact that the phone is a touch screen - but that there is a push up keyboard as well as an on screen one.
Bad points:
As with all Blackberry's the battery life is not great, but still better than some. I charge it once every two days.

Laura, Glasgow Music and entertainment lover

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I really loved my blackberry and found it difficult to give up lol but the time came when my contract was about to run out so i had to choose my new fone (i have the iphone 5 now). Everything about the torch i loved the only annoying thing about it was how quite slow it was to load anything or go on the internet etc but apart from that i loved my Blackberry Torch
Bad points:
Quite slow at loading or going on the internet.
