Let me start off by saying that I have always been a huge blackberry supporter. I love the keyboard and the keypad that they have. I bought the Torch and for the first few months I did truly enjoy it. I didn't use all of the features, but I did have my email set up, facebook, twitter, and BBM all set up. After a few months I noticed that the phone started to slow down. I would have to manually take out the battery and restart my phone alot more as time went on. One thing that really irritated me about the Blackberry is that there are only a few apps available. For example, you couldn't download instagram or snapchat. The lack of apps is probably the number one reason why I switched to a different smartphone. I want to be able to be entertained by my phone and have the same applications that my friends have. I did enjoy the touch screen, I thought that was a really cool feature. However, I think that the Blackberry's time has come and I am very glad that I switched over to another brand.
