    9650. 9530 aka the storm was good in theory but it was just to problematic.

    9650 has more memory and wifi.

    The bold is always a better choice for the most part. That's RIM's top of the line device.

    Unless you really enjoy the clicking touchscreen, the Torch is the much better device in every way (screen, power, memory, connectivity, OS etc.) I would take the Torch in a heartbeat, unless you need a cheaper BB to hold you over until BB10. That changes it up a little, as the Storm will hold you over while being much cheaper. Also, the Storm 2 was a much nicer device overall than the first, so if you can get your hands on a 9550 then that will more than last you until BB10 launch

    The 9550 is better than the Storm 1 by far...

    But it still comes down to personal preference.

    Without question the 9650, but if you must have a touch screen, go for the 9550 over the 9530, it's a far better device!

    Bold is better for:

    Its a bold (heck yea)
    Better battery
    OS 6 (os 5 is fading out)
    And a phone built like a brick

    I used to have its brother, the tour and I must say, it worked for a very nice time period before LCD pixels started to die

    Beyond all else, the memory is stable on the 9650, meaning you will not have to do daily battery pulls (like the 9530). I owned both and the lack of a full screen is definitely worth it when you talk about it always working and not having to reboot daily.

    9650. The 9530 was not that good a product.
