The build quality on this device is solid and reassuring, with dedicated volume buttons on the side along with the camera button and voice activation. However the Bold 9700 doesn’t have a touchscreen, so you navigate using the square touch sensitive-trackpad. This will take some getting use to if you are new to using a track-pad.
