Default 9650 Camera vs 9700 Camera

Please Login to Remove!

I looked on CNET for a review of the 9650 and they give it a very good rating. They give the 9700 an excellent rating. I would think with more memory they would give the 9650 a better rating than the 9700. But they don't. I also see that CNET says the 9700 takes "excellent" pictures. But they say the 9650's are not that good. All the specs I read on the 2 devices states the 2 cameras are identical. So, my questions are:

1. Is there anything internally different in the 2 cameras?
2. Perhaps CNET is not the best place to look for reviews and if not, where?

I tend to listed to Cnet's reviews - they're usually accurate. As far as the cameras, I believe they're identical. Don't know if the software is different, but I wouldn't think so.

Reviews and rating are as good that particular user. Both devices are very similar.

The key point here is the 9650 and 9700 are available on different carriers, if you are looking to purchase one these phones which carrier offers better service? Then make your decision.

I have no experience with the 9700, but as stated, i think the highest megapixel camera any blackberry has out right now is the 3.2 meg. My 9650 takes excellent pics...
