BlackBerry Curve 8300

MobileTechReview.com
10 March 2008
  • Conclusion: We like recent BlackBerry smartphones, and the Curve is no exception. It does all the things you'd expect from a BlackBerry but it's smaller, cooler looking and boasts decent, though not earth-shattering multimedia capabilities.
  • Pros: Stable, fast and easy to use. Great curvy ergonomics. Good call quality, very good music playback quality and A2DP support (something the more multimedia-oriented iPhone lacks). Battery life, as is generally true of RIM devices, is quite good.
  • Cons: Not a con, per se, but an important consideration if you're thinking of the Curve vs. the 8800 line: the Curve lacks a GPS. Still no 3G on a BlackBerry. You have to turn off the phone to insert or remove a memory card.

  • Summary: Business with pleasure The BlackBerry (BB) Curve 8300 is the littler sibling of the BB 8800, which we tested in August 2007. Most phones from RIM are business-centric, but the Curve incorporates multimedia features. Silver tones make for a cool, refined look.

  • Conclusion: We were very pleased with the Curve as RIM managed to put together a great package together into one phone. While the camera isn’t perfect, RIM did its research to make sure it would not come out useless and the great flash is better than most phones out there.
  • Pros: Comfortable, full QWERTY keyboard, 2MP camera with a great flash, 3.5mm audio jack, Great screen, Battery life
  • Cons: Emails were doubled, Cheap looking UI from AT&T, Sound quality through the speaker when listening to music, No video recording, Location of the microSD slot
