Good: Slim form, Great qwerty, Loud speakers, Crisp display
Bad: No auto-focus, Bad for internet, rubber chipping off, Battery life
Comment: Need a better battery and replacement material for the central casing. Rest all the phone is superb!
Good: Keypad, okay to look at, has all your basic needs
Bad: Terrible battery life, unreliable, camera is awful, slow internet, shuts itself down at random intervals, takes ten minutes to turn on
Comment: honestly say this is the worst phone I have ever owned - which is saying something, because I have owned a lot. Where to begin?
Battery life - awful! Needs to be charged at least twice a day, cannot take more than a few photos without the battery dying, and internet usage will promptly drain it too. Must have a charger on hand at ALL times.
Camera - possibly one of the worst quality built in cameras I have ever experienced. Quality is grainy, generally the photos only look half decent if you turn the flash won - but that will drain the battery almost instantly.
Internet - Slow, awkward to use, crashes and shuts itself down constantly. Most websites appear how they do on a desktop, so you have to zoom in very close to see anything, which means a lot of scrolling and fiddling around. Youtube videos won't play half the time, and error messeges are frequent.
Overall aspects - the phone is unreliable and slow. It shuts itself down at random intervals, and when you turn the phone on it takes about 10 minutes to load up. Not worth the price by any stretch of the imagination. Personally I think this phone should be taken off the shelves. This was the first and certainly the LAST blackberry phone I will ever buy!
Good: Nothing, literally nothing, NOTHING
Bad: bad build quality, slow clunky operating system, sub par apps, premium apps cost a ton of money, crashes all the time, bad 5mp camera and bad media player
Comment: This is a bit dramatic but yes this is the worst phone ever and I think i'm the lucky one, I've used my friends phones who have forked out for the top of the range models and they are having the same if not worse experience to me, all in all this has been a terrible experience and I cannot wait for my upgrade at the end of the month (dropped my samsung down the stairs). I have only had this phone six months and the cracks are already starting to form, god help anyone who has a year-two year contract with this monstrousity. I wanted to be as open minded when I got this blackberry as I had many good and bad things about it, I have an Ipad 2 and have owned a galaxy s and sigh I can say nothing good shines through about blackberry OS, just deep dark and dreary failure. Gonna upgrade to windows phone 8. HOORAY!
Good: good camera and messaging system
Bad: frame around the phone breaks easily
Comment: i strongly recommend this to anyone who i currently beyond buying one of these simply because they are technical and fast, they are brilliant, the camera is 5 mega-pixel which is a bonus, the messaging system (bbm&sms) ar also great. I love this phone its amazing!
Good: Nice camera, sleek design
Bad: Cheaply made, falling apart
Comment: I got this phone when it first came out and I'm a bit disappointed of how cheaply made it is, even for the Curve series. My phone has been in a very good case since the day I got it, and I treat it with care. But there are things falling apart on it, like the silver coloured band that surrounds the phone is detaching, and the paint on the trackpad has chipped completely off, as well as the paint on the keypad letters has been chipping off. Also, the battery life doesn't even last a day. Im not sure if anyone else is having these problems, but I know this shouldn't be happening to a phone that has been treated well. I do regret purchasing this phone, and I wish I had got a different one, it was definitely not worth the 300$. Very disappointed in Blackberry.
Comment: I like it
Good: Gorgeous design, excellent camera, BlackBerry call/speakerphone quality
Bad: Cheap plastic back cover
Comment: Awesome Curve. Huge improvement on the QWERTY keypad from earlier Curves. This is an awesome phone for the money.
Comment: BUY A EMERGENCY BATTERY CHARGER, GO TO THE EBAAY LINK BELOW LOOOOOOOOK
Bad: No Autofocus
Comment: I love all about this curve and I also love the 5mp camera but It doesn't has autofocus so sometimes the close photos don't look as awesome as it really can be.
