Blackberry Curve 8520
Advantages: easy to use,many apps to chosse from
Disadvantages: internet problems
The Blackberry curve is a slimmer,lighter more easier to use version of Blackberry's must expensive mobile phone Blackberry Bold. This phone is also alot cheaper than the Bold so it is a great choice for a New smartphone user or for someone whos teenager wants a Blackberry but you aren't ready to pay £400 + for a blackberry incase hey lose or break it. Add in the Fact that I didn't want anything to fancy the curve was a great option for me.
I picked this phone up back in September expecting it just to be like any normal Smart Phone or any phone in general just take it out the box and it works STRAIGHT AWAY! I was wrong..... We were going to Morrisons to get something to eat and I was setting the phone up in the Car and I set everything up correctly but it was when I tried to open up the Inbuilt Internet Browser to go on my"facebook" the problems started.
It would not connect to the Interntet. It kept looking for a Wi-Fi network and there was none nearby. It had no mobile internet on it which was advertised and I found myself wondering why I had paid £140 for a update when I was stuck with a mobile phone that didn't have the Internet.
Other than the Internet Problems this phone is pretty nifty. It's camera is good enough quliaty although I would have expected better for what I pay and the same has to be said about the Video Quailty. You can acces different apps on the phone like Twiiter and Facebbok aswell as hundereds of games.
I don't think the Internet problem is that widespread as I haven't heard any one from other networks other than Orange complain about internet problems. So before you buy this phone I would ask whoever your buying it from if theres any Internet problems! I have conteacted Orange and they have told me to bring the phone to my nearest Orange store so I will go after the festive period.
I recommend this phone for any one above 10 Years old as it is a very easy to use phone with just a few problems.
Summary: I would recommend this phone for Newcomers to the smartphone market.
