This is in opinion regards to blackberry phones generally. Would love RIM to look into battery longetivity as the blackberry phones are prone to die out more quickly when engaged with so many applications.
Got this new curve and have been using it for almost 2wks now.
1. Really nice screen display (coming from Bold 9000)
2. Audio quality is loud enough (for music, videos, and calls)
3. Divx support out of the box
4. Hasn't bogged down despite running multiple apps
5. Hasn't frozen on me (yet) even when installing multiple apps simultaneously (was updating 5 applications at the same time)
6. Good camera performance (or at least good enough, coming from a BB)
1. Audio for notifications (email, sms, calls, etc) is too low for my liking; it is most likely you will miss a call if your phone is in your bag
2. Back and home keys are difficult to press. You may also end up pressing the "end call" key when pressing back. And that's for someone who has small fingers!
3. Battery performance is not-so-good. Despite the reviews saying that it has the same capacity as higher end BBs (torch, etc), it only lasts me max of 36hrs (I get to stretch my BB9000 up to 48hrs+ of moderate to pretty heavy usage). This is for push email, app use (FB, twitter), texting, and calls (less than 2hrs per day).
4. Touch keyboard definitely not its strongest suit. Coming from a BB with a hardware keyboard, typing on this curve takes a lot of getting used to (still am, quite frankly).
5. Fingerprint magnet and easily gets scratched :(
Despite the cons I've mentioned above, I honestly think that this BB is not so bad. I quite like it, actually. Looks nice, but screen protector and/or casing is a must, especially if you're as OC as I am (lol). Performance-wise, it is efficient enough though I would've appreciated better battery life.
i love blackberry curve , it has optical track pad... but i hope more slim blackberry phone...
vipin, 26 Jan 2012IF it has FM radio too I would have definitely bought it.only lacking FM radio.Am sorry,but blackberry phones from the on set don;t have fm radio go check it out
vipin, 26 Jan 2012IF it has FM radio too I would have definitely bought it.only lacking FM radio.Boss fm are taking to radio phone so costli. Fm should take to you the Nokia 1280 phone.
this phone surely is not what i expected from bb....... i would any day vouch in for bb 8520...........bb is best with key pad and the touch sucks....its not what i would expect after investing 21k ......accelerometer is one hell of a thing in this phone.....i need to literally find an angle to align it.....touch is incomparable to any apple products as i use an ipod touch......this phone for sure is the worst i have made a purchase........i would go back to bb 8520 any day
IF it has FM radio too I would have definitely bought it.only lacking FM radio.
RIM needs to do better to improve prossing speed 800mhz thats a damn joke commpared to what is out there? Oh please dual core 950mhz & above your gps nav sucks interface lame stop being copy cats and play "catch up" create innovate woo us with sime thing on heard,of like, BBM
Dear NOUSHAR switch off the 3G option and then try. The battery timer will surly improve.
iam so upset of this phone bcoz of battery maximum 1hrs is the battery life....need carger cable along with phone.iam getting mad.dear friends beeter choose any other model of bb.
Amazing phone with cheap price enjoy using it for a week already..the weakness is only the battery cant last long...
purchased BB9380 3weeks ago...
Pretty good phone with no lags during multitasking. Browser works well when it completely loads. Touch sensitivity is very good.
The phones outer metal like lining seems to be not firm. I would like to know from other users if you all experience the same?
it is a super phone. bought it to replace my old bb curve 8520. with a price of 20000 was in a state of delima whether to invest or not, but my what a good buy it was. with the new os 7 it is an entirely new experience. on par with android n ios(except the app store obviously). slim stylish n yes very light to carry. great performance and yes a great camera n super sound quality thru speakers. M proud to own such a great phone :)
