BlackBerry Curve 8300 Review

29 Jan, 13 06:45 PM

Overview

One of the Best Blackberry Handsets

Overview of Blackberry Curve 8300

The Blackberry Curve 8300 is very similar to the BlackBerry 8800 in terms of its easy to use features that are perfect for young professionals who are juggling between work and a worthwhile lifestyle. The following are the features you have to consider when deciding if this is the mobile phone for you.

Organiser and other Utility Tools

The so-called millennial generation is always on-the-go and mobile phone features that would make them productive even when not at work or at school would be an instant hit. With Blackberry Curve 8300 equipped with organizers, calendars and email, it would be much easier to balance work and play. The device merely has 64 MB internal storage capacity but it has provision for up to 4 GB external microSD card which can hold your files, photos, music and even work documents.

Google Maps and GPS

It is easy to find your way through the urban jungle with a smart phone like Blackberry that supports a built-in GPS. Navigate your way to a meeting place set by your client, plan your weekend getaway, and get there using the device’s turn-by-turn directions.

Telephony and Phonebook

Although this is not a feature unique to Blackberry Curve 8300, it is worth mentioning that the device allows conference calls of up to 20 people through its Push to Talk tool. For those who haven’t used this, it works like a walkie-talkie wherein you have to push a button to signal your intent to speak as other people take turns in broadcasting their responses. You can use the Push to Talk feature through the handset’s speaker or through a headset.

Blackberry Curve 8300 User Interface and Comfort to Use

One thing that draws consumer attention toward any Blackberry handset is its interface. The phone is really easy to use, even the older baby boomers would not have a hard time. The device still has Blackberry’s signature QWERTY keypad which has changed the face of text messaging in epic proportions. On top of that, Blackberry Curve 8300 features trackball navigation.

Blackberry Curve 8300 Music Player and FM Radio

True to its goal of encouraging consumers to lead a balanced life, Blackberry made sure that their handsets do not only make work convenient for people—they also make play a lot more enjoyable. The 8300’s music player is versatile, it allows playback of popular digital audio formats such as MP3, WAV and WMA among others. The handset also allows video playback of MP4 and WMV.

Blackberry Curve 8300 Camera and Image Quality

As for instant memory capture, the Blackberry Curve 8300 is not lagging behind. It comes with a decent 2 megapixel camera that delivers an output of 1600 x 1200 pixels. You don’t have to worry about taking pictures during a night out with friends as the camera also comes with a LED flash.

Verdict

Blackberry Curve 8300’s jam-packed tools and features would be worth nothing if the device fails to perform smoothly. Good thing the phone is equipped with a 32-bit Intel XScale PXA272 operating system. A lot of phones are on par with Blackberry when it comes to features but as for speed and performance, this is a handset to beat.
