RIM BlackBerry Curve 9360 Review
Crazy to say, but all is not well in the calling quality department as our ears are subjected to some flat sounding voices through the earpiece. Meanwhile, our callers mention hearing choppy voices on their end of the line. Hoping for something better, things don’t improve when switching to the speakerphone since voices are muffled in tone.

Whether it’s indoors or outdoors, the BlackBerry Curve 9360 is able to retain a solid connection to the network during our testing in the greater Philadelphia region.

Above all things, we’re astounded by the Curve 9360’s excellent battery life, as we’re able to get 2 days of heavy usage on a single charge. Taking into account that it’s packing only a 1,000 mAh battery, it’s impressive to find it lasting for so very long.


Conclusion:

Not all of us can afford to experience RIM’s latest and greatest offering, but for those looking for something reasonable without sacrificing too much of the experience, the BlackBerry Curve 9360 proves its worth – especially in its pricing. At $79.99 with a 2-year contract, it’s easy enough to afford on almost any budget, but more importantly, it’s able to provide us with that rock solid BlackBerry experience that it’s high-end siblings offer as well. Also, there are enough incremental improvements to make it one of the more memorable Curve handsets in recent memory, and in fact, it’s able to supplant the Curve 8900 as being the best looking Curve to date.

OS Version: v7.00.319
