Too small (especially the postage stamp-sized screen), awful implementation of SureType, laggy OS, and dreadful build quality. The Style corrects all those things.
The only reason I didn't pull the trigger is price. It would be $325 to me to buy one new with my partial discount. I get another $75 off come next May, but that's a full year away. I will have had several new BlackBerrys by then!
I was told by a Sprint rep that battery life is a bit worse than the 9650, primarily because of the faster processor. Current users, how do you find battery life on the Style out in the real world? If it's not any worse than the battery life on my current device I may pick one up used.
He i just got mine from BOOST MOBILE for 199 which was not bad .i have always been a fan of the old school black Startec phone this somewhat brings that form factor back and i love that its a blackberry . i had the torch which i really did not like . i never thought i would like a small blackberry but this device is awesome the size is almost perfect for everything. as for battery issues i have not had a it a full 24hrs yet will update in a few days .
