Just bought this mobile 3 days ago and got surprised with the very poor performance of its battery. I was about to bring it to service center but then I read all comments here and apparently, I'm not the only one experiencing this battery problem. This is really not good as I have to charged it twice a day. For me, its not a good choice of phone. Please respect my opinion. Thanks!
Me and my gf just bought this mobiLe, and trust me, the battery only last for 4hours, very disapointed whit this mobile, while charging it becomes very hot
hi guys and girls please be aware that all smart phones have poor battery life if you wanna have good battery life i suggest you get yourself a second phone with your company or personal sim card regardless without internet access then you'll absolutely see a difference please try this and please get back to me i hope this will be the solution too everyones frustrations have a wonder day God bless
i have this BB & it's nice i like it more than my old tourch 9800, the batry problem i think it's same for all BB but i solve it when i close the 3G & keep it only 2G & using the wifi for fast internet so the battry life coming good for me.
mzway, 29 Nov 2011i think Bold users should get over it, this curve 9360 is way better then the 9780, both by pe... moredont compare a bb bold with the bb curve everybody knows that the bb curve is lowest bb brand and dont compare an old bb9780 with a new bb 9360 almost a year difference why not compare a bb9360 with a bb 9900 and see the difference between a bb bold and bb curve....

Hi mzway. If you think the 9360 is looks good than the black 9780, that's your opinion. Everybody has there own taste and I won't argue with that. When we said the 9360 has problems with battery life "even with moderate to heavy use," we mean we used it already with minimal usage and it still has the same result. Thank you for your inputs anyway. I feel you love your phone so much. Does anyone have a "more objective" review with the BlackBerry Curve 9360 with regards to battery life?

bb fan, 24 Nov 2011which blackberry model would be better? 9630 curve or 9780 bold. I have a chose between the 2,... moreHie gsm viewers, gsm arena had reviewd that bold 9900 has a gud battery and wen I brought one, it didn't last even for a single day with moderate use.so I exchangd 9900 with bold 9780 and I can say that I am very pleased with it. Battery is awesome as it lasts 2-3 days easily with moderate use Same is the case with curve 9360. Since it uses 1000mA battery I m sure that it won't last entire 24hrs. Kindly avoid buying 9360 as u would b on the losing side. Bold 9780 rocks evn though it operates on older os 6.
I'm totally supa inlove with the 9360mits owesme it has almst all the features the bold has so y nt
It seems that this new model of Curve Family feel me amaze, most of the features and specs are almost the same with my 9780 Bold. Gonna buy this one soon.
bb fan, 24 Nov 2011which blackberry model would be better? 9630 curve or 9780 bold. I have a chose between the 2,... moreI would go with 9780 because of 2 things, first is obviously the battery life, and second would be the built quality. Bold feels very solid in hand, keyboard is softer and silent, trackpad is solidly planted into the unit unlike the curve, the four BB buttons are very nice on the Bold and easy to press, the battery cover also feel more solid with thicker plastic and leather finish on the outside.
You need to compare both at the nearest store to really see what I'm talking about...
One more thing is the camera quality, 9780 has the best camera in BB with 5MP and auto focus (only equaled by torch series), so make it 3 reasons for me to choose 9780 over 9360
if comparing 9360 and 9780, i rather go for 9780 even though i haven't bought it yet. lasting battery is very crucial for bb user.
The reviewer has said that the screen is HVGA what is NOT
The difference between this phone and Galaxy something and HTC Status is that they simply have chosen a simple 3:2 screen and for that they've used a black strip around that to mimic a 4:3 (mostly up and down) that is not a good thing, link at the distance between row one of the qwerty keys and the bottom of the display, BB is the only company that knows this form factor so well and has used a 4:3 screen (480x360 not 320) screen and I think it appears good.
I really respect BB's attitude for not copying iOS (as Droid is always doing) and despite the market pressures they have persisted for the people who are not interested in touch phones
This is my first BB phone and I'm in love with it. I previously used Samsung Galaxy Ace but just simply got tired of Android (I mean c'mon! Phone manufacturers keep on releasing new models eveery week and I don't earn millions to go with the flow and buy a new and updated model monthly!). I only use my phone for business and messaging and my BB Curve 9360 delivers what I need. I don't care much about the camera since I would only use it to update my photos in Facebook and Twitter. I didn't have a tinge of regret switching from SGA to Curve 9360 compared to the last time when I bought my Galaxy Ace where I was weighing if I made the right choice. My BB Curve has the features that I mostly need and use. I would always get compliments from my colleauges who are also BB users since my hone is definitely a looker and amazingly slim for a BB. I must say thanks GSMArena for the sound review and thanks to RIM for coming up with this beauty. My next plan is to buy a BB Playbook to pair with my Curve but then again, I am not closing my doors to Android since I also love that platform. All in all, having a Blackberry works wonders for me as a professional! I just hope it will come with a software update to improve its battery life but for the meantime, I can always bring my charger with me ;-) Looking forward to also get the new BB phones next year with BBX platform.
I read GSMArena's review. They say this phone can last 2 days with moderate to heavy use. I have one but it doesn't even last 12 hours with the same usage. I'm also reading a lot of opinions from users having the same concern. What is happening here. Does it mean we have a DEFECTIVE PHONE?
BB 9360 battery life is very bad even for moderate user like me..totally disappointed.
with out a good battery , a good phone is worth nothing
black berryy - guys learn some thing from sammy and others or else u will perish soon
