Default Speed of BB Bolds?

Please Login to Remove!

I recently had a blackberry pearl... Upgraded to a Samsung Fascinate.... Not liking it, to "game-based" for me...... However the apps on it(Facebook, Browser, Email) are extremely fast. How do they compare to the Bold on verizon's network? Is the Bold fast? Or noticeably laggy?

First, please update your profile to indicate the BB you have. The 9000 is a GSM device and does not run on Verizon.

Speed is really dependent on a number of factors, such as the OS, device processor and memory, the connection itself, your distance to the tower, tower congestion and a couple others.

That being said, from what I know of the Samsung and other Android devices, they are faster than a BB, mainly because of a much faster processor and much more available memory. And I think the Android OS contributes to the speed as well.

If speed is a compelling factor, stick with Android. If you want a workhorse and you are on Verizon, then check the BB 9600s.
