BlackBerry Curve 9330 3G Sprint review: BlackBerry Curve 9330 3G Sprint

 

The RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 from Sprint is identical to the one from Verizon Wireless . Hardware specifications are the same--it has that same Curve form factor, the optical trackpad, the flat navigation array, and the external media player keys...

The RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 has a very responsive optical trackpad, convenient external media keys, Wi-Fi, stereo Bluetooth, GPS, EV-DO, a 2-megapixel camera, and a media player. It's upgradable to OS 6, and is very affordable.

The BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 only has EV-DO Rev. 0, the microSD card slot is located behind the battery cover, and photo quality is mediocre.

The BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 is a very affordable entry-level smartphone with a solid feature set and great call quality.

BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 (Verizon Wireless)

 

Now ready for BlackBerry 6. Spectacular keyboard. Smooth messaging. Reliable

Screen looks really low-res nowadays. App selection still behind the competition

The BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 is a minor spec bump designed to make the popular Curve ready for the new OS 6.

BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 review:

 

The RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 for Verizon Wireless isn't very different at all from its predecessor, the Curve 8530 . Indeed, the only changes seem to be cosmetic, and even then the changes are slight. You still have the media keys on the top, the...

The RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 has a responsive optical touch pad, a slim profile, external media keys, Wi-Fi, stereo Bluetooth, GPS, EV-DO, and a 2-megapixel camera. It is very affordable.

The BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 is not too different from the Curve 8530 aside from a few cosmetic changes. Photo quality is poor.

Despite its entry-level status, the RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 is a decent smartphone for the price.

BlackBerry Curve for Verizon falls short on features

 

Waiting for the BlackBerry 6 operating system

Excellent messaging options, will upgrade to latest operating system, durable and lightweight

Poor camera quality, sluggish at times

BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 Review - BlackBerry Reviews by MobileTechReview

 

It was the best of times and the worst of times for the BlackBerry Curve line. With the Curve 3G RIM has made a solid, attractive and keenly affordable entry tier BlackBerry smartphone that's OS 6-ready, but alas it doesn't yet ship with OS 6. So you...

Solidly built, attractive BlackBerry that's extremely affordable

Low resolution display and camera

The BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 on Verizon is a solid entry level BlackBerry with better than average looks for a Curve and a wonderfully low price. While the specs won't send you to the upgrade hotline if you're a current Curve user, the phone is better...

Review: BlackBerry 9330 Curve 3G

 

Research In Motion refreshed the Curve line with the 9330 Curve 3G, which is offered by Verizon Wireless. The Curve 3G has a better keyboard, but the same display and camera as its predecessors.

"Good phone"

 

It's great phone for chatting, texting, email, social media and storing music and videos. If you want a phone where you can use FB, twitter, Gmail, etc, listen to your music and chat, and you won't be disappointed

Lightweight and compact

Camera with no flash

"Basic smartphone"

 

This is a good starter smartphone. If you don't care about all the latest and greatest features and don't mind being years behind the times and you aren't trying to impress anyone, then this can suffice as a decent daily driver. It has decent PDA...

It has a functional physical keyboard. Optical track-pad makes navigation easy for a non-touch screen. Great selection of ringtones out of the box.

Very basic apps out of the box. SMS, email, and calling features feel very early 2000s. Internet browser can be slow and clunky.
