BlackBerry Curve 9380 review: Not what youd expect

It's like we already met with the Curve 9380. Since its a completely different approach to the Curve lineup there is just no basis for parallels with older Curves. But remembering the previous BlackBerry OS 7-based smartphones we had, the Torch 9860 will surely ring a bell.



So, the new Curve 9380 is not something we havent seen so far, it's a downgrade on an already familiar phone. read more →

  • 3.2" 16M-color TFT touchscreen of HVGA resolution (360 x 480 pixels)
  • Quad-band GSM support and tri-band 3G with HSDPA
  • Single-core 800MHz processor
  • 512MB RAM
  • BlackBerry OS v7
  • BlackBerry Internet Service account is a must to enjoy all the phone features
  • No physical QWERTY keyboard (a potential deal breaker for a BlackBerry)
  • No videocalling and no front facing camera either
  • No Flash support for the web browser
  • No FM radio

A touchscreen BlackBerry Curve at last

There's definitely the potential within the BlackBerry Curve 9380 for it to be a good smartphone, and for many BlackBerry addicts on a budget, hungry for some touchscreen action, it could serve well.



Frankly, we'd rather have the BlackBerry Curve 9360 within the BlackBerry range, but if it's a touchscreen phone you want in this price bracket, we'd go for the iPhone 3GS, thanks to its slicker operating system. read more →

  • Fairly cheap
  • Bright, colourful screen
  • Some nice design in BB OS 7
  • Light and quite well-made
  • Some good social integration
  • Low screen resolution
  • A few performance issues
  • OS has lots of rough edges
  • Keyboard is a bit fiddly
  • Some poor social integration, too

RIM BlackBerry Curve 9380 Review

The BlackBerry Curve 9380 is an interesting foray in the touchscreen-only jungle by RIM, which probably meant to create a decent consumer-oriented budget device with its services staples. Yet when you get rid of one huge advantage for BlackBerry aficionados, which is the physical keyboard, and replace it with an on-screen one plastered over a wimpy 3.2-incher, eyebrows are bound to be raised. There is just no way that the suit and government types will be typing on the Curve 9380 like on the markedly easier BlackBerry physical portrait keyboards, which are RIM’s trademark for the world. read more →

  • A full suite of BlackBerry services
  • Good call quality
  • DivX video playback support
  • Pricey for the specs, yet unappealing to the typical BlackBerry user
  • Stiff volume rocker and camera keys
  • Fixed-focus rear camera and no front-facing cam
