This has been my primary work phone for the last few months. I use it for a lot of email, moderate texting, and moderate calling. The battery life works well for me. I can get through one day of heavy use or more than two days of light use. But, this has not been the best battery life I've gotten from a BlackBerry device.
I love the design of this phone. The look and feel and great. I think it looks very professional, elegant, and modern. My only gripe with the design would be the the battery cover (plastic with fake carbon fiber look) scratches quite easily.
This device has a great display. Its sharp and colorful. Its obviously just a lot smaller than what most other modern phones are offering. It sure makes using the browser feel very cramped compared to just about any android device out there.
Call performance is always great. Just like every other BlackBerry I've ever owned. Camera performance isn't very good. Just like every other BlackBerry I've ever owned. The selection of applications is quite bad. Just like every other BlackBerry I've ever owned.
Overall performance is good. Its always fast and virtually never stutters on anything. Even the browser performance is quite smooth and fast.
I'm very happy with this device and highly recommend it to anything who needs a BlackBerry. If you don't need a BlackBerry and plan to do anything besides call, text, and email...buy an Android or iPhone and get a MUCH better selection of capabilities.
