BlackBerry Monaco 9850 review

Sunday, December 11, 2011
Following the presence of the Touch series through 9900 and Bold 9930, BlackBerry 9850 Monaco had come to enliven the homeland of the smartphone market. Together with his twin brother 9860 Monza, Monaco is the third series of the BlackBerry smartphone that has no physical keyboard after Storm and Odyn, except that this smartphone into a previous Torch breeds have a physical keyboard with a slide mechanism.
Dimensions: 12 x 6.2 x 15.1 cm, 135 gram, full touchscreen, plastic and metal materials in the backdoor, trackpad and four physical buttons (call, menu, back and end / power) under the screen, 3.5 mm audio ports the sound volume control and convenience key on the right side, left side microUSB port, lock button on the top side. In your design sector will feel the influence of two previous BlackBerry smartphones as well. The first course of full-touchscreen form factor previously found in the Storm series. While the second, if the note a similar list of metal that surrounds the back of the phone will remind you of the Onyx design, but this mobile phone is an elegant and classy look.
TFT capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors, 480 x 800 pixels, 3.7 inches. If the two types of BlackBerry without a keyboard before using SurePress technology, not so with the Monaco 9850. This is not because of investments in technology development has been discontinued by RIM from a year ago. Compared to the previous series BlackBerry smartphone, this phone's screen has a brightness and contrast feels better, so as to display graphics with better quality too. In line with the view display, responsiveness of the phone screen is better.
BlackBerry OS 7
BlackBerry OS 7.0 bundled, 1346 (v7.0.0261, Platform Just like the Bold Touch series, Monaco and Monza uses RIM's latest operating system, BlackBerry OS 7. Compared to previous versions contained on the Torch 1, you will find many similarities making it easier for BlackBerry OS 6 users to adapt to the operating system on this phone. The main menu is integrated directly with the homescreen with a similar mechanism of drawers that can open the lid. In addition to the main menu bar named "All" are also 4 other panels such as Favorites, Media, Downloads and Frequent.
Photo Cameras
5 MP, 2592х1944 pixels, autofocus, geo-tagging, continuous auto-focus, face detection With a wider screen than the BlackBerry previous series, display viewfinder on the camera features Monaco also become more widespread, so you can monitor objects with more precision. In the feature, the camera settings Monaco also features interesting scene modes consisting of 11 choices. In the previous series is known to have a BlackBerry camera quality is below average. However improvements RIM made on this phone seems to work. Shots of this phone displays a natural color with good sharpness. Used for shooting objects in close range images still appear sharp even though the phone does not specifically provide a macro mode. Video Recorder 
A maximum of 720p HD resolution, image stabilization One of the major changes brought a new generation of BlackBerry smartphones with OS 7 is located on the mode of moving pictures or video recorder. Likewise in Monaco, this phone can record video in 720p high resolution. It is becoming increasingly slick with image stabilization feature that makes the recordings remains good despite a lot of movement on the phone when recording.
HTML, HTML5, multi-tabs browsing, pinch zooming, downloads Since the BlackBerry OS version 6, the browser on the BlackBerry smartphone features multitabs browsing and pinch zooming, as well as the version on this phone. What is different is the integration of the latest Javascript engine, which also increases browsing speeds by up to 40%
CDMA 800 / 1900, GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900, Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP, EDR, microUSB 2.0, GPRS, EDGE, HSDPA 14.4 Mbps, HSUPA 5.76 Mbps; EV-DO Rev A 3.1 Mbps, Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n Unlike the 9860 Monza track that only runs on GSM, Monaco provides flexibility for users to choose to use GSM or CDMA lines. Unfortunately, unlike the Touch Bold series, one of the key features of the BlackBerry OS 7 is support for NFC (near field communication) is not available on this device
Social and Messaging BBM
version 6.0, push email, social feeds BBM is one application that makes BlackBerry users hooked and difficult to turn away from the device is made by RIM. Realizing this, the RIM include BBM in the latest version 6.0 by default in Monaco. Besides social feeds available applications that can also be found in previous versions of the OS. The absence of a physical keyboard would be a negative point for BBM enthusiast who spends a lot of time to type messages.
Video player
Video player DivX/XviD/MP4/WMV/H.263/H.264 With a wider screen than the BlackBerry smartphone ever, enjoy the videos on this phone is certainly more exciting. Video display options available, fit screen, full screen or actual size. Audio shuffle, repeat, media player MP3/WMA/eAAC + / FLAC / OGG player The music player Monaco has an attractive appearance but without special features. When playing music, the center of the screen that displays cover art can be shifted to see the cover art from other collections held at Monaco 9850. Similar to the concept of IOS's cover flow.
Excess :
• the latest BlackBerry OS version 7
• BBM 6
• Elegant design
• good performance
Shortage :
• The price is relatively high
• Without the NFC technology
Conclusion :
Outer side of elegant design and slick performance of the BlackBerry OS 7 in the software sector is an exciting collaboration of this phone. Although the price is relatively high, for the loyal fans of the BlackBerry smartphones that may not be a major consideration. It's just as full-touchscreen phone that features messanging like BlackBerry Messenger, lack of physical keyboard certainly reduces comfort while typing messages.
