Yet more phones emerging from the BlackBerry camp, in what appears to be a veritable river of BlackBerry 7 packing handsets flooding our phone shops. Next

BlackBerry Curve 9380 review

 

A touchscreen BlackBerry Curve at last

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

After playing it cool for a few years, RIM has apparently decided that there's something to this touchscreen phone lark after all, releasing a budget all-touch device in the shape of the BlackBerry Curve 9380.

BlackBerry Curve 9380 Review: In Depth

 

In a sense, the BlackBerry Curve 9380 is one of the most interesting phones we've seen from RIM in a while. Though it's specifications aren't cutting edge and it doesn't immediately scream ‘Phone…

Visually rich user interface ; Slick design and feel ; Great price

Video camera isn't amazing ; Limited apps from BlackBerry App World ; Not the best virtual Qwerty

BlackBerry Curve 9380

 

The very first touch-only BlackBerry Curve smartphone lands on our shores - is it good enough to forgo one of the best QWERTY keyboards in the business?

Very nice display for budget device excellent size and weight comes with Documents To Go capable camera.

Noticeable dip in performance whilst multi-tasking only VGA video-recording portrait QWERTY keyboard a bit cramped.

BlackBerry Curve 9380 review

 

The Curve brand has been hugely successful for RIM, especially the 8520 mega-hit; these were the first BlackBerries that appealed to the masses on a budget, allowing the everyman a taste of BBM and the famed BlackBerry keyboard. Alongside...

Bright screen ; Responsive UI ; Very customisable alert profiles ; NFC capable ; Small, thin and very light

Touchscreen sensitivity issues ; Small screen and low resolution ; Tiny, inaccurate keyboard ; Buttons difficult to press ; Poor camera performance

RIM BlackBerry Curve 9380 with BBM music

 

Review Perhaps sensing that it's on the verge of losing the smartphone battle, BlackBerry manufacturer RIM has all but swamped the market recently with a rash of handsets, each offering something a little bit different. The Curve 9380 is the midrange...

The BlackBerry Curve 9380 betrays its lower end leanings with a fairly low resolution screen and underpowered processor, but it’s got a decent camera and messaging capabilities. The lack of content on BlackBerry App World will be a frustration for some...

BlackBerry Curve 9380 review

 

RIM's recent burst of handsets would almost put HTC to shame fortheir diversity and frequency. The Curve 9380 is the midrangeversion of the Torch 9860 -- a full face touch screen design butsmaller, lighter, and a little bit cheaper.

Slim and sleek styling, BlackBerry 7 OS

Screen not too sharp, onscreen keyboard a bit cramped, processorshows occasional signs of lag, awkward hard buttons, not a greatselection in BlackBerry App World

It's horses for courses, but if you don't want the bulkof its larger cousin, the Curve 9380 offers a slick little packagewith a decent range of features so long as you're not expectingespecially high performance.

BlackBerry Curve 9380 Review by 3G.co.uk

 

The Blackberry Curve 9380 is a cheaper handset with OS 7 and a touchscreen, but it lacks some of the classic BlackBerry features

BlackBerry 7 OS; great colour saturation on screen; updated version of an old favourite

Dearth of apps; slower 860MHz chip; over-sensitive display; social networking integration is disappointing

Anyone looking to update their Curve for a touchscreen device will find the 9380 offers a comfortable and familiar option. It may not be as durable as some devices, but it is small and light. However, there's not much in the way of entertainment or...
