Interface:

Oh boy! It really makes us wonder why RIM decided to bring out an OS 7.1 running device, knowing what’s coming very shortly. Nevertheless, that’s exactly what the Curve 9315 is running, but to tell you the truth, it’s undeniably antiquated by today’s standards. Even worse, it’s tough trying to navigate around the UI seeing that it’s not enabled for touch – so it’s a tedious process!

Processor:


Armed with a single-core 800MHz processor with 512MB of RAM, it’s not something that’s going to instill fear in some of the high-end devices out there. However, for a device of this caliber, it’s effective in providing a mostly quick response with most actions.


Internet:

Can it be any more tedious? Seriously folks, the web browsing experience with the Curve 9315 is a perfect example of antiquity at its best. Not only is it painfully slow in rendering images and text on the fly, but the slow navigational movements when scrolling makes it more infuriating.

Wish theyd pull out the stops for what may be there last Blackberry pre BB10- just for the few remaining die hards, but either way this phone should not be bought. Too many other good options.

Agree. Also the phones with small screen are mostly good just for the phone calls.
