REVIEW: BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300

Mobile Magazine
12 August 2013
  • Conclusion: The BlackBerry Curve 9300 is definitely a lesser BlackBerry, but the price reflects that. The camera leaves much to be desired, the keyboard isn’t the most comfortable thing in the world, and web surfing can be an exercise in frustration. At the same time, the core BlackBerry functionality is as great as it has ever been, the keyboard will be familiar to those who came from the 8300-series, and the overall build quality is quite good (particularly the textured materials...

Blackberry OS 6 on the 9300 Curve 3G

9 August 2011
  • Excerpt: When BlackBerry OS6 was announced, RIM let us know that only three v5 devices would be upgradable to v6, namely: Pearl 3G, 9650, and 9700. However, the then upcoming 9300 Curve 3G was specified as OS6-ready. If you are using a 9390 that is still running v5, plug it to your PC and launch Blackberry Desktop Manager. If you have an Internet connection, you will be notified of an available update to OS6. Simply follow through with the prompts to upgrade your device.

BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300: 8520 with Some Extra Toppings

Tech2
22 May 2011
  • Excerpt: The BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 is an upgrade to the popular BlackBerry Curve 8520 . In a line, what's new is a few minor aesthetic touches, a faster processor, double the RAM which makes the device OS 6 capable, support for Wi-Fi 802.11n and of course the big extras–GPS and 3G. Form Factor Chrome is in and the 9300 flaunts it too and as a result the 9300 looks far better than the staid 8520.

  • Conclusion: If you're only interested in a phone for calls, emails and texting, the BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 is ideal. The keyboard means you'll be able to text easily at speed, and quality is also good. It's not so good when it comes to web browsing, however, even with 3G, as the screen is simply too small in some cases.
  • Pros: As with previous BlackBerry handsets, the Curve 3G excels when it comes to entering text. The keys are smaller than the more expensive BlackBerry models – like the Bold – but it's still easy to type at a fast pace, and we found it more accurate than using a touchscreen device. Despite the budget pricing, the BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 is packed with features. As the name suggests, RIM has included 3G connectivity, making it easy to browse the web wherever you go. That s...
  • Cons: The form factor of the BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 automatically means that the keyboard takes up valuable screen space, so the Curve isn't quite as good as rivals when it comes to browsing the internet. The 2-megapixel camera also looks outdated.

BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 Review: In Depth

Recombu
27 April 2011
  • Conclusion: The BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 is an inexpensive but pretty average BlackBerry handset - it’s great for surfing the web and typing on but it feels a bit on the brickish side. The camera is very average and dated, so if this is an issue for you, we’d advise you to check out the BlackBerry Bold 9780 instead, which has a more powerful camera.

The BlackBerry Curve 9310 is a solid messaging phone

CNET
25 April 2011
  • Summary: The BlackBerry Curve 9310 is still the same ho-hum handset you can expect from RIM, but for a $50 BlackBerry (with contract), it's reliable and makes texting a breeze.
  • Pros: The BlackBerry Curve 9310 has an excellent keyboard, great audio quality, and convenient shortcut keys.
  • Cons: The Curve 9310 sports the same aged look as previous Curve devices, its camera quality is mediocre, and it's missing a lot of key features of BlackBerry 7.1 OS.
