The Blackberry Torch comes with a 624MHz processor and quite evidently, this is not in the same league as the 1GB and above processor speeds that you find on many other modern day smartphones from HTC and Samsung. However, users are noticing performance levels on the Blackberry Torch is much worse than what you can expect. Several users on the Blackberry Support forums are noticing lags, random hanging and freezing on their handset.
One user writes,
“I’m also experiencing this. I have made sure to close every application that could be closed on the phone, and I have seen that opening things like the options, or trying to hit the end button the exit messages is very slow. Also just trying to open an application like test messages takes forever sometimes. Not all the time, but it’s very sporadic. My BB Bold 9700 was super fast all the time. I’m a little frustrated with this lag all the time. I even did a battery pull to try and fix it, but that didn’t do anything.”
No words of acknowledgement from Blackberry so far, but the issue does not seem to be occuring on all the Torch handsets either. So, we are assuming this to be an isolated glitch, for now.
Are you facing this issue?
