  • Conclusion: The BlackBerry Curve 9380 is an interesting foray in the touchscreen-only jungle by RIM, which probably meant to create a decent consumer-oriented budget device with its services staples. Yet when you get rid of one huge advantage for BlackBerry aficionados, which is the physical keyboard, and replace it with an on-screen one plastered over a wimpy 3.2-incher, eyebrows are bound to be raised.
  • Pros: A full suite of BlackBerry services, Good call quality, DivX video playback support
  • Cons: Pricey for the specs, yet unappealing to the typical BlackBerry user, Stiff volume rocker and camera keys, Fixed-focus rear camera and no front-facing cam

  • Conclusion: It's horses for courses, but if you don't want the bulk of its larger cousin, the Curve 9380 offers a slick little package with a decent range of features so long as you're not expecting especially high performance.
  • Pros: Slim and sleek styling, BlackBerry 7 OS
  • Cons: Screen not too sharp, onscreen keyboard a bit cramped, processor shows occasional signs of lag, awkward hard buttons, not a great selection in BlackBerry App World

  • Conclusion: Blackberry lance un nouveau Curve… mais cette fois sans clavier mécanique. Le 9380 arbore un grand écran tactile. Ce changement est-il à la hauteur de ces concurrents ? Réponse dans ce test.
  • Pros: Grand écran tactile, légèreté, Blackberry Messenger, finitions, autonomie en push, puce NFC
  • Cons: Absence d’enregistrement vidéo HD, petite mémoire interne, clavier virtuel très moyen, navigation entre onglets poussive, paramétrages austères et complexes
