Disadvantages: battery life, small keys
I bought this blackberry 6 months ago as i'd always wanted a blackberry curve having previously bought a bold for personal use. The design itself was my favourite of all the blackberry's with its thin design and large screen. As a first time blackberry user I must say my expectation were quite high and I did end up being disappointed.
First of all the keys are far too small for me to be able to type without using just my pinky finger which made it pretty much impossible to use with ease.. Second the battery life is extremely poor I can barely get through a day without having to charge my phone. Even with the ever popular BBM ( blackberry messenger ) I found that I would constantly be having technical issues with it and so I ended up just getting rid of it all together. Whenever a friend would try to add me on BBM it would never come through and just say pending. Sometimes BBM wouldn't even allow me to send messages and after countless phone calls to try and fix this I ended up just getting rid of it as it was causing me so much hassle at £5 extra a month. The camera which was absolutely terrible had 5 megapixels but in my opinion it should have been even lower. I also found when calling people on my phone I would hardly get signal but when I did I have to admit I have a good experience with the call features as you can put people on speaker or on hold which came in handy.
The only really good thing I can think of is that blackberry offers the use of apps similar to an iPhone. Some of these included: Facebook, twitter, msn and games like hangman etc... But that alone could never outweigh the cons of this phone. I think the hype of blackberry made me think they were so amazing and on another level to other phones when really they just look nice and that's it.
Summary: not good
