Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

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

What we liked
  • Excellent build quality (steel bezel, high quality components, soft touch finish, carbon-fiber laced back cover)
  • Slim body
  • Bright, crisp, high-resolution display
  • Excellent touchscreen response
  • Excellent QWERTY keypad (spacious, tactile, intelligent layout)
  • Fast 1.2 Ghz processor
  • Good audio & video quality
  • Decent camera
  • Good signal reception and in-call audio quality
  • Good battery life
What we didn't
  • No auto-focus for camera
  • No video-call camera
  • BlackBerry Internet Service plan is required to use many features (browser/ mail/ IM)
  • BlackBerry continues to lose out to Androids and iPhones in 3rd party apps (BlackBerry app world is no comparison to app stores of iPhone and Android)
  • Web browser is good, but again, still behind Android and iPhone
