RIM BlackBerry Curve 9370 ReviewBlackBerry Curve 9370 5.5
call quality is below par on the Curve 9370 as voices on our end were flat and dull sounding, while people that we talked to said it sounded hollow, choppy, and “like a cell phone” on their end. Despite this, the device was able to maintain a connection and did not drop any calls or data connections while in use in the South FL area.
The included 1000 mAh battery is only rated at 5.5 hours of talk time on a full charge, and under mixed usage we were able to get about 8 hours before requiring a charge.
We would have been more interested with the BlackBerry Curve 9370 if it came out last summer, but with it being released months after the Curve 9350 and 9360, it is really outdated. Not only that, but we believe the $100 on-contract price is asking more than it should be. If you currently own the Curve 9330 and want to stick to BlackBerry, it might be worth the upgrade to the 9370, but for new customers, it doesn’t offer anything exciting over the competition.
Software on tested device:
BlackBerry OS 7.0 Bundle 1971 (v18.104.22.1684)

How could anyone walk into Verizon and pick this phone when it's sitting next to the 4S and so many Droids?
RIM deserves to fail at this point.

Another one?! They all look the same I don't even know which one is which now! The only device I still like from RIM is the latest Bold 9930. I just wish RIM was better...

Agreed. Other than the 9930 everything sucks balls. Including the Porsche Design or Proceeding or WTFever they are calling it now.
