BlackBerry Curve 9320 review

 

RIM's latest attempt at a cheap-as-chips smartphone

Great price ; Slick operation ; Decent camera ; Well-placed keys

Chunky design ; Slightly poor web browser ; Outdated OS ; Low resolution screen

Update: We've now re-reviewed the phone based on the lovely lower price of £99.95 ($240) - does it make it more of a bargain in the face of the incoming BlackBerry 10 smartphones?

BlackBerry Curve 9320 review

 

Can the budget BlackBerry Curve 9320 help RIM win back the youth market?

Great battery life ; Classic keyboard ; BlackBerry 7.1

Lack of storage ; Low screen resolution ; Old-fashioned design

BlackBerry Curve 9320 - Pocket-lint

 

An affordable smartphone for the entry level that's excellent for those who want to predominantly message. Conversely, the small display and app experience

Affordable, great for messaging, good battery life

UI is a little lacklustre, display and resolution limits some of the multimedia experience and browsing

Overall, there isn't much that the BlackBerry Curve 9320 doesn't do. Apart from the lack of NFC, now a feature of high-end BB handsets, and a touch interface, you pretty much get everything that Blackberry offers. Sure, you don't get the best hardware,...

The BlackBerry Curve 9320 is the new baby of the BB Curve family, effectively replacing the popular 9300, or BlackBerry Curve 3G as it was otherwise known.

BlackBerry Curve 9320

 

With long battery life, a good keyboard and easy to use interface, this is a great budget messaging oriented smartphone.

Great keyboard, Good build quality, Easy to use core features

Screen resolution is very low, Poor selection of apps, Very limited for multimedia and web

BlackBerry Curve 9320 review

 

As with every smartphone these days, the BlackBerry Curve 9320 is aimed at social networkers. To this end RIM says the Curve 9320 is blessed with good battery life and connectivity, as well as 'social-centric' features that include a dedicated button...

Is it possible to get beyond the poor web browsing experience and the generally dated feel of the Curve's display, OS and camera? Well, yes: just look at the price. The BlackBerry Curve 9320 is not for those who demand the latest and the best, but it...

BlackBerry Curve 9320 preview

 

RIM says the Curve 9320 is targeted at users upgrading to a smartphone for the first time, or existing Curve owners looking for a "step up". How much of a step up the Curve 9320 is, however, is certainly debatable given it has a similar feature set to...

The BlackBerry Curve 9320 is RIM's latest budget smartphone. It should come with a low price and its battery will last you over a full day, but it offers no real upgrade over previous model Curve devices. This will be a tough sell for the once mighty...

BlackBerry Curve 9320 Review

 

The BlackBerry Curve 9320 is a little BlackBerry with a (relatively) little price tag to boot. Priced at just under £150 offline, it packs in all the features you'd expect to see on a higher end BlackBerry such as Wi-Fi tethering, 3G and GPS while...

Low-cost ; Well connected ; Good keyboard

Terrible web browsing ; Fixed focus camera ; Poor app selection

Expert review by: Hanleigh Daniels (techsmart.co.za)

BlackBerry Curve 9320

 

RIM's BlackBerry Curve 9320 smartphone arrives to cement its dominant local market share, and keep the popular Curve range evergreen.

Brings FM Radio functionality, mobile hotspot functionality runs on latest BlackBerry OS grip-friendly and pocketable design excellent physical Curve keyboard convenient BBM key great battery life and snappy 806 MHz CPU.

Small display that offers less so-so resolution; VGA video recording ability as opposed to HD-Ready (720p); competition has more appealing operating system and better stocked application stores.
