Summary: I was a smartphone newbie when I bought this phone so I wasn't really sure what to look for. I planned on travelling with it which is why i liked that it was unlocked, GSM compatible, quadband, and a smaller size than the typical smartphone. It wasn't until I tried downloading apps on it that I realized a lot of the apps I needed aren't supported by blackberry, only android, windows, and iOS.
Summary: So this is pretty much the 2011 introduced BlackBerry Curve 9360; almost identical without the keyboard. No gorilla glass, just hard plastic for the touch screen. Touch response isn't great, and it's nothing near the responsiveness and crispness of the iPhone (an old 3GS has a better response time than this) or high end Android phones. If you have big fingers, I don't recommend this phone. You also can't tilt lock the screen either.
Summary: I brought this phone with great expectation.But unfortunately i miss the Qwerty keyboard from blackberry.The 3G option is not useful in india as the same is not available from service providers.This phone does not also support tathering.
BlackBerry Curve 9380: Death by touch screen [Review]
23 May 2012
Excerpt: The 9380 is BlackBerry's first full touchscreen Curve model, and it is very pretty. At 109 mm tall and 60 mm wide, it is the same BlackBerry size that fits perfectly in your hand, but is just a bit skinnier than most at just over a centimeter thick. It's light...
Pros: BlackBerry OS 7 "customisable menu panels and the social feed made me happy, universal voice search, maps" navigation was easy, fast and pretty accurate.
Cons: The 9380's capacitive touch screen isn't the greatest, I think it's because the letters on the keyboard are too close together, even in landscape mode. The screen is just too small for the entire alphabet.
Summary: My company recently ordered 16 phones for the team to facilitate instant communication. For me it was two steps backward as I was using Samsung Galaxy S2, the second best Samsung phone in the market. The transition was not easy as I had to transfer all the old contacts to BB 9380. Unfortunately, this phone accepts transfer only through either SIM card or through syncing their BB Desktop software for PC or Mac.
Summary: I bought this phone a year ago and this explains how interested am to give away a review. This mobile has the best build in every percept. Pros : 1)Best touch. flawaless. 2)Very sleeky 3)Weightless. 4)Good camera (5MP +flash) 5)Robust OS 6)Hotspot & FM & NFC & awesome speaker Cons: 1)No Auto focus 2)Less Onboard memory.
