People always compare between iPhone and Blackberry models. Today I bring to you a simple comparison between the iPhone 4 and the blackberry torch 9800.
Both the two models work on 2G Network GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 and the 3G Network HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100. The iPhone 4 was released and announced in 2010, June while the torch was in 2010, August.
The dimensions and the weight of the iPhone 4 is less than that of the torch 9800. Whereas the resolution of it the iPhone screen is better by twice than that of the torch 9800. The iPhone has LED-backlit IPS TFT, capacitive touch screen, 16M colors while the torch 9800 has TFT capacitive touch screen, 16M colors. The iPhone 4 has a scratch-resistant oleo-phobic surface while the torch 9800 doesn’t.
The internal memory of the iPhone 4 is 16 or 32 GB which make it needless for an external memory card while that of the torch 9800 is 4 GB.
Both the mobile phones work on the GPRS Data Class 10 (4+1/3+2 slots), 32 – 48 kbps with EDGE Data class 10, 236.8 kbps with 3G Data HSDPA, 7.2 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.76 Mbps, but the wireless LAN is Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot for the iPhone but Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, UMA (carrier-dependent) for the torch 9800. Both have Bluetooth and USB Data transferor and with no Infrared technology.
Both the mobile have 5 MP primary cameras of resolution 2592 x 1944 pixels containing an autofocus with LED flash. But for the video camera the iPhone is better as it is faster as it is 720p@30fps with LED video light and geo-tagging. Also the iPhone has a secondary camera – which doesn’t exist in the torch 9800 – which can make video calls on the WI-FI technology.
The iPhone is running on iOS 4 while the torch 9800 is running on BlackBerry OS 6.0. The iPhone is faster as its CPU is 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor, PowerVR SGX535GPU, and Apple A4 chipset while that of the torch is a 624 MHz processor. The battery life of the iPhone is better than that of the torch 9800.
Although the iPhone is more expensive than the torch 9800, it will always be recommended.
