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
very bad battery!!! What are you saying gsmarena? 2 days of medium to heavy use? It won't even last a day with medium use!
Anonymous, 25 Nov 2011battery life is very bad, wont last a day, moderate to light use. is this fact or opinion buddy? do you own the phone? no go TROLOLOLOLOL some where else
I think this can beat 9780
but 9360 just got very bad in battery, 1000 mAh (bold 1500 mAh)
better get a power bank alongside buy this
bb fan, 24 Nov 2011which blackberry model would be better? 9630 curve or 9780 bold. I have a chose between the 2,... moreCurve 9360 are better. 9780 using old OS version (BBOS6), but 9360 using latest BBOS7 with 800MHz procs. Start-up, open apps and scrolling are more faster.
bb fan, 24 Nov 2011which blackberry model would be better? 9630 curve or 9780 bold. I have a chose between the 2,... moreI would Suggest to go for 9360 as it has a upgraded os i.e. BB OS 7 Where In in 9780 there is BB OS 6
bb fan, 24 Nov 2011which blackberry model would be better? 9630 curve or 9780 bold. I have a chose between the 2,... moreHonestly, they are both quite similar, but there are few parts where this has some better specs.
If I had a choice I'd choose this! its just that bit better...
which blackberry model would be better? 9630 curve or 9780 bold. I have a chose between the 2, please advise which 1 is better
The camera doesn't seem like a 5 mp camera! Other than that it's an awesomely quick phone..
Pluto, 20 Nov 2011I'm struggling to choose between the 9780 and this curve,i'm geussing the difference is that i... moreBoth have flash.
9360 wins on OS7, browser speed, slimmer, and more up to date
9780 wins on battery life, built quality, silent keyboard, and auto-focus camera
I went with 9780 and haven't regret it. I suggest you try both the stores.
I am confused between 9360 and 9370 which is a better phone, 9360 or 9370
I've both the mobiles 9780 bold and curve 9360 !
i would say based on performance 9360 beats 9780 because it has a 800mhz processor compared to 600mhz of 9780 and then it has a newer OS7 which is more smoother than 9780 ! and yes it is more stylish and slim than 9780 !
but but but but ! when it comes to keyboard and battery life THEN 9780 IS A BEAST ! :D
