Blackberry Curve 8520
Advantages: BBM, qwerty keyboard
Disadvantages: camera poor quality, poor battery life, always freezes
I feel as though this phone has been the greatest burden of my life! I wanted it so bad at first, and admittedly when I got it I thought it was the best phone ever! After about 2 months it constantly started to freeze and I had to keep rebooting it. I had this phone for 2 years and could not wait to get rid of it. Finally I upgraded it to the lasted Blackberry Bold. However after one month, that got stolen, so I had to use this phone again for another 6 months until my mum upgraded her phone and I got her iPhone 4.
WHAT I LOVE ABOUT IT
'BBM' is good - free instant messaging for blackberry users. This is the reason that I wanted a blackberry and I thought I would miss it when I got the iPhone, I really didn't. I love the qwerty keyboard and buttons ontop of the phone that control the media player.
WHAT I DON'T LOVE SO MUCH ABOUT IT
The battery life is appalling at times. It always freezes and you have to constantly reboot it. The app store is ridiculous and slow. Its annoying, it can be quite difficult to use to an unexpierienced user. The camera is bad quality as well as the video recorder.
Overall I would not recommend this to a friend and I am much happier without it! I know lots of people who's blackberry's have broken on them, I was one of a small minority who's Curve lasted a long period of time.
Summary: i would not recommend this to a friend
