BlackBerry Curve 9360 3 Stars

« Back to reviews BlackBerry Curve 9360

Look and feel

A tidy handset measuring 11mm thick and weighing 99g. It looks businesslike, as we’ve come to expect from BlackBerrys.

Ease of use

If you’re not used to BlackBerry’s OS it may take a bit of getting used to.

Features

Not much in the way of apps, but the screen is decent, even if it isn’t a touchscreen. Excellent QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi, A-GPS and HSPDA. And NFC capability too.

Performance

The 800MHz processor offers decent performance while the camera is a five-megapixel model that’s a great improvement on the two-megapixel version on the last Curve

Battery life

You’ll need to charge it every day unless you avoid using sat-nav and Wi-Fi

Pros:
Great keyboard; cheaper than other BlackBerrys; usual BlackBerry functionality
Cons:
No touchscreen; disappointing choice of apps
Rating:
  • Look and Feel 3 Stars
  • Ease of use 3 Stars
  • Features 3 Stars
  • Performance 3 Stars
  • Battery life 2 Stars

Final verdict: 3 Stars

With no touchscreen and a poor choice of apps, we think you’d be better off looking at one of the Android handsets that has a decent keyboard at a lower price
