RIM BlackBerry Curve Review
The Curve did great in our tests. Signal strength was great everywhere we went. Sound quality was strong and clear. Both parties could hear well and clearly.
With the 312MHz processor, navigating through the menu was quick. There were a few times where there was a slight pause when a command was made but it was no longer than 1 second.
Battery life is just amazing. While texting, making calls, browsing, and checking emails, the battery managed to last us 4 days and still has ¼ of the battery left. Talk time is rated at 4 hours but we managed to get 5 hours and 40 minutes out of one charge. We know BlackBerries have good battery lives and the Curve certainly does not disappoint.
We were very pleased with the Curve as RIM managed to put together a great package together into one phone. While the camera isn’t perfect, RIM did its research to make sure it would not come out useless and the great flash is better than most phones out there.
The email client is great, as expected, and the battery life is great. The QWERTY keyboard, while small, is very comfortable to use, much better than that of the one on the 8830. The media player does a decent job of what it’s meant for. It supports plenty of formats so there shouldn’t be much of a problem playing finding media to play.
Overall, the Curve is a great messaging phone with decent camera and media capabilities. If BlackBerries one of your preferred phones but you missed the camera and media options, then the definitely give the Curve a try. You will not be disappointed.
