We will start with a comparison of their sizes. BlackBerry phones were initially known for their features and not their looks because their phones used to be large and unattractive, but they have since changed that stereotype and have started to make sleeker, more stylish phones. Although the Storm 2 is a touch screen phone and the Tour uses a physical keypad, they are not far apart in height, width or even depth. The BlackBerry Tour is .03 inches shorter and .05 inches slimmer than the Storm 2, but it is also .01 inch thicker. Overall, the BlackBerry Storm 2 can be considered a bulkier phone, weighing 1.06 ounces more than the Tour.
Both phone’s display, battery life and camera is pretty much the same at 480x360 pixels, 5 hours talk time and 3.2 MP respectively. Where these phones really differ in specifications is their memory. Both phones are equipped with a 256MB onboard memory, but the Storm 2 also has 2GB eMMc and an expandable slot that is accompanied with a 16GB memory card by some carriers.
You need not worry about 3G support or GPS with either of these BlackBerry models, but if you like to use your Wi-Fi connection for most things, like I do, you will definitely have to get the Storm 2; the BlackBerry Tour does not support Wi-Fi, but has tethered modem capabilities. Both phones do have Bluetooth, so there is no connection lost there, but neither of these models has dedicated media keys, which is a personal favourite for me when comparing features.
