BlackBerry Curve 9300 Review

  • 4.0 / 5
    • The good:
      Good connectivity options, Excellent design
    • The bad:
      No radio, Unimpressive camera, Poor internal memory

    The BlackBerry Curve 9300 looks like most other BB phones, coming in 4.29 x 2.36 x 0.55 inches and weighting around 3.67 ounces. The buttons for Call, Menu, Back, and End Call (also the power) sits below the 2.46-inch screen. Between the Menu button and the Back is the touch-sensitive (which you can also press) trackball (although it is a square and looks more like a trackpad, really).

     

    The QWERTY keyboard is just below the trackpad with keys in the signature BB shape. The top side of the phone is devoted to playback keys for easier and more convenient music-listening experience. It still employs the standard 3.5 mm audio jack and the standard microUSB port for charging and data storage. As with every BB phone, Curve 9300 has excellent email capacity. The enviable BlackBerry Messenger is also a plus factor (although of course, not exclusively to this particular device). It is Wi-Fi ready and has GPS, which is really useful for countries which have enough network to support the service. It also has impressive 3G connectivity. The device's camera is not at all impressive at 2 megapixels. At least, though, it can record videos no matter how low-resolution it may be. It doesn't have a secondary camera so video calling might be a little inconvenient.

     

    Internal memory is also not something to write about with only 256 MB initial storage. A bright side, though, is that it can accommodate SD cards up to 32GB. Adding to the list of features this device doesn’t have is the FM radio. Users have to download and fill the device with their favorite MP3s instead. Battery life is standard, lasting up to 456 hours on stand-by and 4 hours and 30 minutes on phone calls. Music playing will not drain the battery up to 29 hours. Because it is a BlackBerry, 9300 has the automatic glamour of an executive-looking phone. It comes in black and the bolder, fiercer red version.
