BlackBerry Style 9670 Mobile Phone Review »

The BlackBerry Style 9670 offers an affordable option for the budget friendly smartphone users with dual displays, a trusty keyboard, a 5 megapixel camera and more. Kevin Pereira and Candace Bailey review the 9670 device that sells for $20 with a contract.

What You Need to Know

  • It's about twice as thick as an iPhone.
  • The phone weighs about the same, though, and it doesn't feel cheap.
  • There's an optical trackpad, but no touch screen.
  • Blackberry's latest OS is the best iteration yet; it's intuitive, easy to use, and streamlined.
  • The problem is, we still feel like it's not as easy to use as an iPhone or Android phone with a responsive touch screen.
  • Things like navigating web pages, zooming in on a map, and just general menu navigation feel slow to us.
  • The physical keyboard is okay.
  • The keys aren't as ridged as other Blackberries, so your fingers might slide a little.
  • That said, you get used to it and it's nice to have a full keyboard inside a flip phone.
  • As far as web browsing goes, page loading and navigation is faster than we remember.
  • You can also load multiple tabs.
  • We just can't help but feel that browsing the web on a 2.7” screen without pinch and zoom is far from ideal.
  • It does features a 5 megapixel camera.
  • Indoor photo quality is grainy and might blur, but the flash helps.
  • The phone only records VGA quality video.
  • It’s still one of the best smartphones for e-mail, though; the combination of the keyboard and interface make this a tried-and-true solution for practically any e-mail account you can think of.
  • Navigating through hundreds of e-mails is simple, since it's all just swipe and click.


  • You can get it for $20 with a contract on Amazon Wireless.

Overall Rating

  • 2 Seals of Approval Out of 5 (How do we rate gadgets?)
  • We don't think this is a bad phone, but it just feels outdated.
  • You can pick up the Samsung Epic or the HTC Evo Shift for $100 or $120, respectively; they're both 4G Android phones with full keyboards, and worth spending $80 or $100 more.
