This phone features 35-key, Optical Trackpad, Backlit, Aspect Ratio: 4:3, Gesture Support, as a bonus to the standard ones to present a remarkable experience.

The battery of this smartphone that bids 7 hours of talk time on 2G network might be questionable area for heavy users. The standby time offered is nearly 432 hrs on 2G network.


Equally savourable it might be to click pictures, video recording is equally particularly pleasing. Megapixels are not the sole determiners of the quality of your images and videos. Based on the sensor quality and the smartphone's other applications; you have the flexibility to get surprisingly good photography results even with a Yes, 5 megapixels camera.

Multimedia FM is a refreshing change from the set loop of your playlists.

The lower capacity of internal memory may raise a few eyebrows as it only satisfies basic utilities.

Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

Apart from efficient and advanced call management, I'd also like my smartphone to be able to perform functions like Pushmail and much more, just like the BlackBerry 9720. Although the BlackBerry 9720 might be extremely portable with its small exterior but I don't think it's worth against the cramped keypad it offers and even the functionality isn't worth the struggle. With all the advanced call management features present in the BlackBerry 9720, it is good choice for business users like me. Bluetooth for file sharing is really not of much use to me, but this feature is really handy when it comes to hands-free calling. Even if my travel routes, both business and pleasure, are very much known to me I'd still like the reassurance from the GPS navigation on my phone.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

I hate typing messages on the BlackBerry 9720 with its tiny keypad as I misspell a single word more than 3 times. Video recording is fun and lets me record all beautiful memories of birthday parties and the energy and excitement of a house party. A smartphone without a good camera is really not my choice, even if the BlackBerry 9720 sports other excellent features and fairly makes up. I will need to delete or transfer photos every week if I choose this BlackBerry 9720 with its small storage space. I always feel the more the better when it comes to smartphone storage and I would always chose the BlackBerry 9720 with expandable memory against any other smartphones that are overpriced and overloaded with confusing features.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

The 2.8 inch display may be quite decent for a smartphone but I don't like it for my reading or gaming purpose. Gaming is really a turn off on this 0.806 GHz smartphone; reading is still bearable. An internal RAM this low isn't capable of handling any level of multitasking or gaming. Smartphone storage with such low capacity even for basic apps and programs is really irrelevant. If you have gaming and ebook library as huge as mine, you can never say no to an extendable memory storage.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The 2.8 inches display of the BlackBerry 9720 was the first thing that grabbed my attention. I prefer texting over talking but this screen size is way too cramped to do that easily. It's not that amazing to own a smartphone with Yes, 5 MP camera resolution. There are cheaper options available that too with better camera resolution. I click hundreds of cool pics with my smartphone and don't think the pictures will be so cool with this phone. My smartphone should be doing more than messaging, browsing and emails and that too simultaneously. I feel 2G networks are not reliable when it comes to this. I like the GPS feature, especially for new locations and traffic updates. I don't worry charging when I can charge my phone with the laptop; I can even transfer files with this. The 0.512 GB internal storage is really very less. If it can't save all my files then what good is it.
