Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

If there is one thing absolutely vital in my smartphone apart from great call management, is it being able to download and edit most email attachments; and much more such as Pushmail present in this device. No point fidgeting with a screen that poses real difficulty both while watching videos and typing on the cramped keyboard, the portability that is offered by the smaller screen seems futile against the little value it offers with respect to functionality. Not an hour goes by without my phone ringing, that's why I always go for something like the BlackBerry 9720 Black that has all the advanced features to ease the communication. Although I am not so much into file sharing via Bluetooth as I am more of an email guy, but it is quite essential for hands-free calling. I am constantly on the move, even if most of the travel routes are familiar, the GPS navigation in the BlackBerry 9720 Black is quite reliable and reassuring.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

It looks really small and comfortable for carrying, but I can't type without misspelling the words at least 3-4 times, that's how uncomfortable using this BlackBerry 9720 Black is. Video recording is a must on my phone, I just love recording and capturing the innocence of cake cutting or the craziness of a dinner party. I won't worry about the other features in the BlackBerry 9720 Black as the camera is so average and a strong deterrent for me. The tiny memory of this BlackBerry 9720 Black will not even last me a week. I always feel the more the better when it comes to smartphone storage and I would always chose the BlackBerry 9720 Black with expandable memory against any other smartphones that are overpriced and overloaded with confusing features.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

As a smartphone, the screen size of the BlackBerry 9720 Black is quite decent; but too tiny when it comes to gaming or reading. Reading is still fine, but gaming on a 0.806 GHz smartphone is really dreadful. Even the lowest graphics games need RAM higher than this. I dunno what good is storage which is insufficient even for regular apps and programs. Extendable memory is always a great storage backup if you have a growing collection of ebooks, games and apps.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The first thing I noticed in the BlackBerry 9720 Black was its 2.8 inches display. The screen size of the BlackBerry 9720 Black is too cramped and so I can't text that easily on this screen size. The Yes, 5 MP camera resolution is not that cool. You can easily opt for any other smartphone with a better camera, it might even be cheaper. I don't think this smartphone can click awesome pictures, which by the way is my favourite hobby. I'd like my smartphone to do all my tasks simultaneously not just perform basic functions like browsing, messaging and emails. And I won't depend upon 2G networks for that. I keep checking the GPS for new locations and traffic updates. The USB connector lets me charge my phone even with my laptop and transfer files. The small 0.512 GB internal storage of the BlackBerry 9720 Black feels quite miserly. I don't understand the use of this storage if it can't contain all my media files.
