  • Review by Tony ""Medic Ricci""

    This is my first touchscreen phone and I’m really having fun with it. In my line of work, I need to be able to access medical and hazard material data immediately and reliably, while being able to call any number of public and private agencies. The reason I say this is because my number one requirement is reliability, and that is closely followed by usability. I’ve had Palm PDAs for my reference books (no more bags of books needed) and progressed through the blessing of phone/pda combinations beginning with the Treo 700 and 755 to the Blackberry Curve and then the Blackberry Tour. I now have the Blackberry Storm 2 and have no regrets. I was quite nervous about making the jump to touchscreen because I was so used to a keyboard, moreover the history of the Storm wasn’t stellar. I did my research, played with various devices, read the reviews (Amazon included) and bought the phone. In doing so, I bypassed the Droid, the Eris and LGs.

    The good:
    1)The BB9550 has been phenomenally reliable without a single glitch or hardware issue.
    2)It is very fast and opens up my medical reference texts faster than my Tour did.
    3)The bigger screen makes it possible for me to read attachments (big reason for switching to a full screen phone)
    4)Email is blackberry awesome with multiple accounts managed easily
    5)As a music player, photo album and video device is is excellent
    6)Keyboard is great–I love the feedback “click”. I cannot understand the whining about tired fingers…how does one type on a regular computer keyboard or use a pencil without some muscle? All I can say is that if you’re tired from the miniscule effort of texting, perhaps the issue is wimpy fingers
    7)Memory availability is fantastic.
    8)Touchscreen is reliable, solid…the entire phone feels solid and well built.

    The bad:
    1)Learning curve using the keyboard configurations with my fat fingers–am getting quickly better and more efficient
    2)Battery life does suck–I charge continually by habit (always have, regardless of device)

    Bottom line, I really like this phone and am very glad to have gotten it. Am giving my excellent Tour away as a gift!

    As you can see, the “bads” are relative and not really factors for such a powerful device.

    A little intro first: I received my Blackberry 9550 (Storm 2) on 11/9/2009. I played with the phone physically at a Verizon Wireless store, along with the Motorola DROID. Although I did love the snapiness of the DROID and its ease of use, I am a Blackberry user at heart (and it does help that work will only compensate Blackberry phones).

    I had previously been using the Blackberry 8830, so my primary concern was typing without a physical keyboard. I had already tried typing on my friend’s Storm, and did not enjoy that experience at all. However, the 9550 has made a very significant improvement where it does not feel cumbersome and “bulky” when typing. This is most likely due to the now four actuators behind the screen, that creates a MUCH MUCH better haptic feedback experience. Although I am not going to convince you or myself that you will type faster than on a physical keyboard, it has been a more than pleasant experience from physical to non-physical.

    The physical aspect of phone also seems just better than the previous storm. It looks sleeker, especially as the screen sets in better at the bottom due to the addition of the four “physical” keys now actually being touch screens on the menu. The display is beautiful, and is the primary reason why I purchased this phone.

    I highly recommend the Storm 2 if you are looking for a Blackberry touchscreen (see what I did there, you don’t really have much of a choice otherwise). But really, I was pleasantly surprised at the overall performance and look of the phone.
