Reviews for the BlackBerry 9720
The BlackBerry 9720 delivers on its stated aim. It offers a mild upgrade option for enterprise customers still tied to BlackBerry services and not ready or willing to upgrade to BlackBerry 10. As a budget competitor for a wider audience, we're less convinced. Strong messaging credentials cannot make up for weaknesses in almost every other department.

BlackBerry OS 7.1 is not dead, not by a long shot. Smartphones running the OS will very much be around, and the 9720 is just one of the many that the company says will be launched in the coming months. At Rs. 15,990, the 9720 does test your love for BlackBerry, and will pretty much carry on with what the previous series of Curve phones did - appeal to the young demographic who want a BlackBerry for BBM, or just for the keyboard. The rest will probably find it too drab and repetitive.

This is one of the smallest diagonal for smartphones.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
65%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
