    Hi. I had a blackberry 9900 about a month ago and I had to get rid because of the up to 12 hours battery life! I loved everything about the phone except from the shockingly bat battery life! I'm wondering if the 9790 is recommendable and what the battery life is like ( how many hours? )

    Also because of the 7.1 update, should I go back to the 9900, if it has been improved, or at all?

    I'm either getting the 9900 again or the 9790... Any suggestions?

    I know there are other threads similar to this but not exactly the same! Thanks

    The 9790 battery is quite similar, say about an hour longer, however you have to remember that that it's running on a much smaller processor, and much less graphics.. In conclusion the 9900 is better for efficiency n plus.. Its Frikin Sexayy! <3

    For me the 7.1 Helped me a lot !, but i still really need more Battery for my 9900, the 9790 have a Whole Better battery, Even without an Update for it... So if you REALLY Care about having a good battery like i would suggest you with 9790, but if you want the best performance phone, Big scren with bigger keyboard, 9900 is your best choice so far !

    I have BOTH the 9900 and the 9790

    Both Running 7.1, I'd say I get from 12-18 hours out of the 9900, with OS7.0 I would fight to get 8-10 hours, so 7.1 is a drastic improvement, with the 9790 I am seeing a more consistent 18-24 hours,

    There is not noticeable speed difference between the 2 devices,
    The build quality and materials of the 9900 are Superior,
