Advantages: Screen, emails, internet
Disadvantages: Back cover shows scratches easily and is flimsy
Today I am reviewing the blackberry curve 9360. I got this as a lot of my friends have blackberry's so I wanted to try it out. So without furthur ado I shall get into the review.
There is an 800 megahertz processsor, 500 MB of RAM, a 5 MP camera with flash and a great resoultion screen.
It is 11mm thick and weighs less than 100g. This is the thinnest and lightest blackberry to be realeased and I really prefer it to some of my friends older versions of the Curve. The keyboard is similar to the others but it is more sturdy and thinner and the screen is brighter and vivid, with great contrast.
On the top of the phone, you have the power button and a 3.5mm jack, on the front there is the light and speaker, then the keyboard and buttons. On the left side is the USB port, on the bottom the microphone, on the right side there is the convenience button and volume buttons which are slightly more stuck out which is better as they are easier to press.
One thing which I think is a slight design flaw is the fact that the back battery cover is very shiny so if it is scratched or there are a load of fingerprints on it, you can see that really easily, it is also very flimsy, I don't mean it's a bit thin, I mean you can actually press it down and it will dip down.
It has an EM1 battery is new to blackberry and has not been in another blackberry phone and it lasts quite a long time.
The battery cover snaps back on and it doesn't fall off easily which is good.
It runs blackberry 7 which runs on the Bold 900 and Torch 9810 and 9860. The performance is very good, I really like the screen as it is very good quality and brightness. On blackberry 7 there are lots of new features which is great and although I haven't had a blackberry before, my friends who have blackberrys do prefer the 7 to their version.
The browser is quite fast and easy to use. It's not great to use for ages but what phone browser is ?
Overall I think the blackberry 9360 is a really great update and addition to the blackberry world. It has a really nice screen and great resolution which I have mentioned a few times and I really like it. It is great for monitoring my emails, work stuff and pretty much my life all in one phone !! So as you can probably tell I really like it and the only downside is the back cover.
Summary: A really great phone for monitoring my emails, work stuff and pretty much my life all in one device
