It is a good device but is prone to heating and is more delicate to use than my old BlackBerry Curve 8520. On the other hand the display is absolutely brilliant and the phone is faster than my old BlackBerry. It is such a thing that you should be comfortable and willing to overlook the drawbacks and appreciate the good points. Overall I would give it a rating of 7/10.

After 1 week of use. My battery lasts almost two days. I'm a moderate user though. No problems with this phone.OS7 runs without a hitch and the build quality is top notch. Recommended!

Got the Blackberry 9360 mid Dec 2011. The battery on this phone is absolutely PATHETIC, ATTROCIOUS! It barely lasts 2 hrs texting and browsing. I do not consider myself a heavy user. Its on charge all the time. A colleague at work has the same phone, same problem - he was forced to buy an additional battery to carry around and a car charger. I am forced to carry my old Sony Ericsson with me as backup.

I have lodged a complaint with my service provider with whom I have a 2yr contract that the phone is not fit for purpose. They tested the phone, agreed with my complaint and replaced my 1st 9360 with another. Same problem. I am on my way now to them to return the phone and swop for a Sony Ericsson Arc S.

(I have switched off apps, downloaded battery apps, reduced the backlight, switched of GPS, WiFi, went from 3G to 2G etc etc etc; but it did not really help. But also, what is the point of the phone then, if everything has to be switched off?? Yes its a smartphone and thus uses a lot of power, but I want to at least get through a day!)

> In reply to David @ 2012-01-18 16:30 from fwgy - click to readThe Blackberry Bold is a much better choice as of yet. You get a good battery of 1500 mAh and a good autofocus camera. But the sad part is that in spite of it being released long back, it is still costlier than the Curve 9360. If RIM makes improvements in the Curve, it would be better, but till then I would prefer to stay with the BOLD 9780.

Why does this phone get so hot when you are using it and why does it have such a low battery life. I have to charge four times a day sometimes and it never lasts longer than half a day when I am not that busy on it?

Kindly close All application by pressing HOME key for 5 seconds... there are many application's running behind the system like WiFi and all
so close them and you all will get good battery backup...

I am particularly fond of this particular handset, and dislike the keys of the Bold series. This is the perfect handset, but I would really like to have the following improvements in it:

-> A good 2000 mAh Li-Po battery. Even if it makes the phone a bit bulky, its fine.

-> At least a 8 mpx continuous autofocus camera with video recording of 1080p @ 60 fps actual.

-> At least 1gb RAM with 16 Gb of in-built memory.

-> A minimum of 1Ghz processor.

-> And please oh please give a physical cover for the micro-USB port.

-> Also a Radio is not too much to ask for.

Come on RIM I am not asking for something out of this world! And I am ready to pay for it. Give me this stuff.
