Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 8 Expert Reviews

What we liked

  • High quality build

  • Light weight

  • Good display quality (good viewing angles, good sunlight legibility)

  • Good touch responsiveness

  • Smooth performance

  • Good QWERTY keyboard (though not as good as that of Bold 9900)

  • Decent audio/video playback quality

What we didn't

  • Average camera

  • No front-facing video-call camera

  • Average loudspeaker

  • Number and quality of apps available for BlackBerry falls far behind Android and iOS

  • BlackBerry Internet Service account is a must to use many of the phone features
