I really want to get this phone and it will be my first blackberry.
With regards to the battery life. Don't all blackberrys have a crapy battery life? Everyone who uses a blackberry complains about the battery life...
The phone is brilliant i have had it for 4 days and found it better to use then my old curve.
Its a lot lighter, the camera is better then the one on the curve only problem is the battery life is appaling! i can leave it to charge over night & by 11 am its on red
overall its a nifty phone just poor battery life
Don't buy this 9360, unless you have extra effort to find an extra capacity battery and do something with the os, to overcome the heat problem and powerless batery. Fortunately, I can exchange the device I just bought for 3days to a more stable 9780, after I received the same problem after exchange with the same 9360 unit on the 2nd day.
User, 06 Dec 2011I bought a curve (8520) for the express music keys.. its sad they removed it in the further modelsthey're not removed, you just have to keep pressing the volume button to change the song ;)
how do i upgrade this fone plsssssss....it does not come with a desktop manager software
Its true....the battery-life is really poor. I have an extra battery but its still frustrating that I have a phone that doesn't last 6 hours in idle mode...
This is the same reason why I changed from the Torch 9800, same crappy battery.
Bought a 9360 a week ago because of the specs and I am absolutely dissapointed...battery life is PATHETIC - it lasts about 6 hours. The 5mp camera is a BIG letdown...compared to Iphone4 camera it's really, really poor. Glossy, plastic battery cover is also a major design flaw. I'm back to my old faithful- the 9300.
Lester, 01 Dec 2011i think Bold users should get over it, this curve 9360 is way better then the 9780, both by pe... moreI bought a BB curve 9360 last week.............i love the phone my last BB was a 8520,i dunno everyone talks about the battery,so what its a fantastic little phone...to those folk who are moaning buy your selfs a extra battery and keep it charged......then your problem is solved.

My first BB ever, the curve 9360. All fine, but what a dissapointment that the battery does not even last a day. This is on very moderate use for example, just receiving a few mails, BBM'ing a few times and going onto FB once
jus bought this fone a week ago or so.... for nearly 20K Indian Rupees, i got my Samsung I9003 too which is now about 18K.... frankly only the battery in my samsung was the piss off else the specs were gr8 with a 1Ghz processor, 512 MB Ram.... 4GB inbuilt memory of which about 1.7GB was available to the user....
here im getting a 800Mhz processor, 512 MB Ram.... 512 MB memory available to the user of whivh about 360 MB was already used for/by the system so i was getting jus close to 150 Mb or so to beef up my mobile, though i must say the usabilty and the weight of the fone is amazingly light and still holds well in ur hands, the plastic gloss screen is a real finger print magnet..... battery with heavy usage still lasts about a day for me, about 2.5-3 hours of browsing, 5 hours talk time, havent still run much of videos in it....
on the business end, its given me gr8 ease to handle my mails and BB messenger is def a unique BB product....
the bad part is no flash support on the browser and when i use more than 3-4 apps at the same time, major hanging problem....
typing is quite good and easy thnx to the shape the keys have been designed....
accessing some basic features and menu etc is gr8.... frankly when i tested my frnds BB 8520, didnt really find much differences btw the OS5 and OS7.... jus more like a few cosmetic differences.....
Gaming is def no-no for the BB.... still love my samsung for that.... the music is quite good though, not one of the best speakers or the loudest but the sound is crystal clear, and the video quality is just gr8....
the camera does lack some advanced features like ISO/white balance.... etc, some very very basic features... the good part is it has an LED flash and takes some nice pics, the pics had a very fine and soft look....
some paid BB apps were really not so worth it, atleast the entertainment ones, but the business apps are gr8...
on the other materialistic matters, the fone definitely looks very classy and stylish to show off, gr8 looks and design and pretty sturdy too and the finish quality is quite good, again not the best in the market but pretty good!!
all in all id rate the mobile
Usage (Business) : 8.5/10
Specs : 6/10
Entertainment : 7/10
style/design : 8/10
all in all id rate this fone about a 6.5/10 whereas id rate my Samsung Galaxy SL I9003 an 8-8.5/10 of course compared to the fones around the same price bracket, lets leave some of the bigger beasts aside, one shudnt compare mice with lions :)
also previously i have used the samsung wave 2 too, only prob is the Bada OS.... else it was a gr8 fone in its own way too :)
i'm using this phone for a week already and i'm loving it. despite all of the negative things i read before i bought it. when i'm using it battery is okay. i think those who are complaining that the battery sucks they thought their BB is a laptop heehee :D it's really awesome to use. :)
Got this phone for 2 weeks now and I must say its the best BB so far, I am happy I sold my bold 9700 to buy this, it is perfect, the fast, slim and elegan. I love it.
considering buying this phone. other than battery life is there anything else i should know
V poor battery life and gets burning hot when browsing or using any smartphone features.. Feels like it might explode! They need to work on the battery issue or it'll be a flop product.. Word gets out quick!
