Blackberry Curve 8310
Advantages: Easy to use, great features, long battery life
I'm not going to bore you with technical jargon, I'm merely giving you my own personal opinion of this product: The Blackberry Curve 8310.
Now, although I like to think of myself as being very good with technology, I must admit that mobile phones have always seemed scary to me, but I finally decided to bite the bullet and purchase one of these (in red I might add)
You'd think that one of these phones would be very intricate and complicated to master, wrong! I have found this phone to be very easy to use and I love the fact that it has a big screen so I'm not forever squinting to read my texts. It also gives you the option to choose what size your font is.
This phone does offer a lot. You're able to do the usual text messaging and taking calls but there's tons more to it than that. You can browse the internet, store a range of media (music, videos, ringtones and pictures) you've got your calendar, alarm, calculator, memo pad, the list goes on...! You even have GPS!
I have found the camera to be of surprising quality, there's also different effects you can add to your photos such as sepia. Now when I'm out and about I can capture each memory as it happens.
I've never really been fond of texting in the past as I hated having to tap a button 3 times to get to the letter I wanted - it took me forever! Now with the QWERTY keyboard I can easily tap out a message in a matter of seconds. They keys are of a reasonable size and don't stick and the rollerball is a great added feature to navigate through all the menus.
I now regularly listen to music on my phone, the sound is of a superb quality, with or without earphones. The battery life of this phone is great too, I barely have to charge it up once a week. The fact that you can charge it up through your computer is an added bonus, my phone can be charging away whilst I'm browsing the internet.
The overall look of the phone is sleek with clean lines and soft edges, the finish is metallic and just screams quality. I would recommend this phone to anyone, my dad even has one! Though not in pink of course ;)
Summary: Where has this phone been all my life? A god send!
