9700 vs 9300?



I am currently purchasing my first BB.   I was about to change my mind from a 9300 to a 9700, mainly for the camera, general look and feel of the keyboard.  However, I am slightly concerned by some of the issues posted with regards to the 9700.


Is it a flakey handset generally or are these issues in this forum "one-offs"?


I am interested in people's opinions generally.  Is the 9300 a better handset, especially as it has a newer OS system?  If so, why is the 9700 more expensive?!

Re: 9700 vs 9300?

I think the 9700 is probably the best-to-date BlackBerry device issued by RIM, perhaps only surpassed by the older 9000 Bold.


So yea, what you're seeing here is people with problems with their device. Look at any section of this forum at specific models and you'll see issues. This is where people come who have questions or problems. Those with none, go happily along in their daily business.
