The disadvantage of LCD displays is the relatively lower color contrast displayed, as the technology cannot display absolute black well. Also due to the higher power consumption, LCD displays are no longer as common in phones. Even so, some manufacturers still equip their phones with LCD technology. However, modern smartphones are already using OLED technology. The advantage of LCD phones is that they tend to be cheaper to build than OLED technology.

Display Resolution of BlackBerry 8820 is 320 x 240 pixels. A higher display resolution is a prerequisite for a sharper image. The standard for mid-range phones today is a Full HD resolution of 1920 × 1080 px. Cheaper phones, which usually have a smaller diagonal, have an HD resolution of 1280 × 720 px. Smaller resolutions can only be found in older models. Best phones, on the other hand, have a 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 px.

The battery size of BlackBerry 8820 is 1400 mAh. Nevertheless, battery capacity is not the only factor that affects the phone's battery life. For example - the size of the display, the performance of the processor, the use of data functions and, of course, the intensity of use of phone in general all have a significant impact on battery life. Standard for most smartphones today is a battery capacity of around 4500 to 5000 mAH. Phones with this battery size usually guarantee a phone life of at least 1 day. Older or cheaper smartphone models can then reach battery capacities typically around 2500 mAH and below. With this capacity, you may find that if you use your phone heavily, you may need to recharge your phone during the day.

Standby time is 600 hours and it expresses the maximum time your phone can last on a single charge when you are not actively using it. Talk time, or we can say battery life when making calls, then indicates amount of time your phone will last from a full charge if you are constantly on a call. BlackBerry 8820 is provided with a talk time about 330 minutes.
