BlackBerry Curve 9360 Review

In this article, I give you my quick review of the BlackBerry Curve 9360 mobile phone with specs included. 

Listening to the needs of the market and to everyone’s general satisfaction, BlackBerry presented the youngest member of its successful Curve family, and we are pleased to have a little fun with it and present it in the way we experienced it. It is a device called BlackBerry Curve 9360 which could be classified as weaker higher class devices in terms of performance and price.

This device is the successor of the Curve 8520 and Curve 9300 models, which achieved enviable success, so the continuation of this series was more than logical. improved in relation to its predecessors, which is certainly a pleasant refreshment for this series.

In terms of size and weight, the BlackBerry Curve 9360 is quite similar to its predecessors. The dimensions of this device are 109 x 60 x 11 mm and it weighs 99 grams. From the design aspect, the 9360 is exceptional and would be characterized as a beautiful and likable phone.

At first glance, the BlackBerry Curve 9360 gives the impression of a harmonious and certainly compact device, which, thanks to its dimensions, fits nicely in the hand.

As potential buyers of this model, we can imagine it equally represented in the business world or in the hands of one lady. The phone is made of plastic, but we could not characterize it cheaply or of poor quality, because BlackBerry’s design team obviously tried to assemble a compact phone.

What is quite characteristic of the BlackBerry is the QWERTY keyboard that this model also has (the keyboard is four-row), which will certainly appeal to fans of SMS messages.

I can’t help but give a little criticism to the keyboard itself, which seems to have received less attention than the Bold 9900, which was somehow “finer” to the touch than this one, but it would be unfair to say that the BlackBerry Curve 9360 keyboard doesn’t work or does not do the job.

Under the back cover, we find a 1000 mAh Li-Ion battery that with medium or intensive use in 3G mode lasts over 2 days, which is a solid performance.

The BlackBerry Curve 9360 is equipped with a 2.44 inch TFT display with a resolution of 480 × 360. Here we come to the first refresh related to the Curve 9360 compared to its predecessors stuck at the QVGA level.

The display of this model is clean and clear, with good contrast and viewing angles, and observing it is not problematic even in strong sunlight, so the display of this model would be rated as excellent.

The camera quality of this camera is solid, with its 5 MP this camera is capable of taking exceptional pictures. The camera’s complaint is about fixed autofocus, and close-ups (such as a document) are not something this model can stand out with. The BlackBerry Curve 9360 is equipped with an LED flash to support shooting in dark conditions.

The BlackBerry Curve 9360 works with the BlackBerry 7.0 OS and a solid 800MHz processor. This processor is a solid platform for significantly improved graphics hardware, and this improved processor also allows BlackBerry’s latest OS to run smoothly without breaking.

The menu of this device is neat, not too complicated with the options of quick access to missed calls or received SMS messages, which we certainly consider positive, the effort of the employees from the BlackBerry company to make this device User Friendly is evident.

As for the supported applications, the 9360 is not lacking in them, we would single out MP3-MP4 players (of which the MP3 player has not changed much compared to its predecessors) as support for music and video formats, A-GPS support, NFC support which is also new as well as the Document viewer application.

The device also has Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n wireless connection, as well as expandable memory with Micro SD card up to a maximum of 32GB.

This brings us to the very end of the presentation of the BlackBerry Curve 9360. We would rate this model with an excellent rating in its category, not so much because of the possibility or impossibility but because of the consistency of the device as a whole and excellent value for money. It has a great success on the market thanks to the affordable price and versatility of the model that covers a large sphere of mobile telephony users.
