Generation 7 RIM smartphones promise significantly better hardware, so we compare them to the kings of the mobile hill
Screen size and pixel resolution
The iPhone remains the king of screen resolution, with its higher-density Retina display, but the BlackBerry screens are in the same ballpark as the Galaxy II S in terms of resolution. The Bold 990 has the highest pixel density, but also the smallest screen, with half the height of other smartphone screens. The Galaxy II S has the largest screen.
- BlackBerry Bold 9900: 2.8 inches, 640 x 480 pixels
- BlackBerry Torch 9810: 3.2 inches, 480 x 640 pixels
- BlackBerry Torch 9850 and 9860: 3.7 inches, 480 x 800 pixels
- iPhone 4: 3.5 inches, 460 x 960 pixels
