Which one is faster : Bold 9780 (OS6) or Bold 9700 (OS5) ?
I have a Bold 9780 and I love it but sometimes his bugs and lags make me crazy when I'm in a hurry. I read on this website that many people hate OS6 and prefer OS5 for its speed and stability.
If it's true, I would buy a Bold 9700 in order to get OS5.
So which phone is faster and has less bugs and lags : Bold 9780 on OS6 or Bold 9700 on OS5 ?
PS : Don't tell me Bold 9900, I know it is amazingly fast but I don't want any OS7 device.

I'd say just update your OS6 on your 9780, later versions have a lot less bugs in them compared to older versions, plus I fond OS 6 to just be generally a lot more usable compared to OS5. Also the 512MB of app space means it's smoother and such. I'd say make sure that you streamline the OS also, delete unused languages and such and apps that you don't use. Then the 9780 will be a quicker and maybe get a little more battery life also.7200>8800>9000>8520>9000>9800>9900. If something's broken, a battery pull can usually fix it...
I tried ALL OS6 versions and now I'm running a hybrid B@stard .723 Yvon. It's great for the web browsing and my battery gives me 2 days, it's good. But the bugs and lags exist in every version.
About Apps, I don't have a lot of them, maybe 15. But what's the point of having a smartphone if we can't use apps ? It's silly but unfortunately with BB it's normal...

I am a bold user, 9000 then 9700 and now 9780. In my personal experience, os5 and 9700 are far away the most fast and stable os.
i haven't tried though 9900 but from what others say, battery is a big defo in os 7 new devices.

BUT I am very careful with the apps I install. To me it is a communication device and music player first. I have a computer for "apps" and look out of the window for the weather. (Yeah, I know, I am weird like that)
Try removing some apps for a few days and experiment to see if you can find which are your buggiest apps and then find alternatives. Not all apps are well written - especially some of the "free" ones.

Where do you get your worst "lags"? What do you do that is slow, and how long is the lag?
