BlackBerry Curve 9380 user review

Bhanu Kapoor, a banker at StanChart, Gurgaon, Delhi NCR, has been using BlackBerry Curve 9380 for the last two years.

She is a satisfied user as the smartphone gives her the freedom and connectivity to contact with her friends and colleagues for both personal and professional needs.

The smartphone allows VGA video recording at 640 x 480 pixel resolution with the built-in video camera.


For professional users, the BlackBerry Curve 9380 can access Internet through GPRS, Wi-Fi, EDGE and 3G. Connectors like Bluetooth and microUSB let you transfer data like videos, images and music tracks with other devices. The preloaded SNS applications let you access Twitter, Facebook 24×7 and stay connected with your friends.

BlackBerry Curve 9380 has a number of positive features which Bhanu enjoys. They include camera quality and accessibility to mails, internet connectivity, quick data transfer and more. The BlackBerry 07 OS is faster compared to Google Android, she says.

BlackBerry Curve 9380 supports both 2G and 3G networks, she says.
