The Pro of BlackBerry Curve 9220 and 9320

 

Long lasting Battery Life up to 7hr talk time and 18 days in standby mode and Up to 28hr Music Playback.

512MB internal memory, expandable micro SD card up to 32G and 800 MHz processor

Wifi capability and 3G(only on 9320)

The 9220 has 2.0MP rear camera, fixed focus and geotagging with video recording facility and 5x digital zoom. but It is not good in low light condition and no flash

The 9320 has 3.15MP rear camera, flash, image stabilization, extend depth of field, geotagging with video recording facility and 4x digital zoom.

The design Yes it’s all plastic and the glossy black back and screen in particular will scratch fairly easily but then that’s somewhat par for the course on a budget handset, and a case will keep it protected. But the front case cover of 9220 feels good in gripping even though it is made in rubber each side of the case except on the 9329 is made in metal finish so looks like more classy than 9220.

Keyboard is great if you get used to it, and difficult for those who has a big thumbs because of small keys.

The Screen is Great under the direct sunlight and you could see text clearly and the pictures.

  • qVGA 320×240 resolution

The Con of the BlackBerry Curve 9220 and 9320

The only thing I don’t like about the user interface in home screen because you need to pop it down the notifications to see the detail unlike on other devices you can customize the notification screen, for example the windows  Lumia 610 has a customizable live tiles widgets.

The Bluetooth connection is sometimes kind of pain in the ass, unlike on the other devices just turn on the Bluetooth and ready to transfer, but the feature of Blackberry is different you need to prompt a password in order to send or receive the item(but it is a good way to secure your file during transfer) so kind of time hassle if your in hurry.

The Processor which is kind of behind in fast response because of 800Mhz, unlike the other devices can boost up to 1Ghz…

The Poor selection of Apps compare to other competitive Apps Store

Low Screen Resolution

Limited in Multimedia and Web which is kind of disappointing for those who like to take a good quality pic and also enjoyment in internet surfing.

Slow Boot up that is the pain in the ass it takes 1-2 mins of waiting to boot up your Blackberry Curve.

The Lag thing you could not avoid in smartphones

The Instant Messaging e.g yahoo, msn, and googletalk, you could not access them easily without the Social Plan even if your using WiFi network. So the tip, try to download some all in one messaging app.

Voice Dialing is Lack of Features only Call <Name, Number, and Location> Check <Item(Status, Signal Strength, Network, Battery, and My Phone Number)> available

Poor GPS and Map does not offer offline map not like the nokia map

Not able to receive multimedia stuff if you don’t have any micro sd card.

Over all I like the BlackBerry for Social Media and Business but not in Multimedia and Web Browsing.It is a great value for money due to its cheap price tag in the market  and unlimited web browsing/BBM service compare to regular unlimited internet offers based on months consumable . So if you change your mind about the BlackBerry® devices you could choose either the Samsung Galaxy Pocket or The Lumia 610 depends if you choose prepaid or plan. That Phones I mentioned it is same tag price in the market today.
