- As a professional, I depend on the capability of my mobile device to deliver emails fast and furious. My Blackberry Curve always delivered emails ahead of Microsoft Outlook.
- The Torch is not as heavy as the Droid 2 and heavier than the Captivate. It’s durable and can withstand a drop to the floor for sure. By the way, it comes in red!
- The battery power for the Samsung Captivate stunk; I did not survive a day at Disney World without the juice disappearing. Try finding an outlet at Disney; when you see one, let me know and I’ll map it for my next visit.
- The screen on the Torch does not come in vivid color as the Samsung; nor does it need to. I’m not on the Blackberry to watch movies, browse unnecessarily, or tap the apps. In fact, it’s nice to have some basic apps like Foursquare, maps, Twitter, and Facebook. But, there’s no way I’m going to read my Kindle on my mobile device.
- Loading email on the Torch was a cinch. For the Droid 2, I loaded my work email in seconds, but a client’s email account never loaded until after 3 unsuccessful calls to Verizon tech support. On the Samsung, I never did get that client account to load and it caused problems for me during vacation.
- The Blackberry emails were simple to load because Blackberry remembered my account information from my previous Blackberry Curve.
- How many apps do you really need to tap on your mobile device? If you have an iPod Touch, you’re tapping them there along with music; if you have a tablet device, you’re certainly tapping them there, too and perhaps getting emails. So, the phone you choose doesn’t necessarily need all those juice-defying apps and whistles.
I’m back to Blackberry and staying put.
