There is absolutely nothing that this device can boast of. In the dying world of Blackberry, it is an entry level device but comes with a price tag high enough compared to the features. a measly 2MP camera, a 240x320 display and the lack of apps makes this device really unappealing. the OS is custome made for social butterflies and official purposes but it does not really pack a punch.
This is the phone for you if you always wanted to try a blackberry device but couldn't because of high prices and if you want a different experience from android or windows.One major downside of this device is lack of apps as compared to android and camera performance is satisfactory for daylight images but very poor for night photos.
There are many amazing features like its trackpad and scrolling music list in media player is just awesome!!!!!!!!. There's a special quick key for bbm at side which is quite convenient.Also you must be aware that you will require blackerry services from your service provider to access bbm.
In this age of Smartphones one expects a fast processor, a high mega-pixel camera, as well as wide variety of apps. Well if you are looking for such features in a phone, let me inform you that these features arent present in the Blackberry Curve 9220.
The Curve 9220 runs on OS 7.1 the experience of which is smoother and faster as compared to OS 5 & 6.
It has a full plastic body but at the same time is quite sturdy.
It has a 2.44 inch display with 320240 Pixels and 164 PPI which is nothing compared to other Smartphones.
It has a Qwerty Keyboard.
The phone comes with a Touch Sensitive Trackpad.
It has dedicated BBM key on the left of the handset which is a Boon for the User hooked on BBM.
It only has a 2.0 Megapixel Rear Camera which is not useful in low lighting conditions and the phone doesnt have a Front Camera.
It has Expandable Memory upto 32 GB.
It is available in Fuchsia Pink, Tea Blue as well as the Traditional Black and White.
It has a Battery Capacity of 1450 mAh which manages to last a day.
It has a FM Radio.
Pros: It has nothing really commendable to boast of as compared to todays Smartphones.
2.0 Megapixel Camera.
Lack of variety of Apps.
No Front Camera.
And pretty much everything.
Conclusion: Today when you are getting brands like Samsung (Galaxy Star S5280), Motorola (Moto E), or Micromax offering better Handsets at a lower range then why would one consider the Curve 9220? My suggestion would be to give the Curve 9220 a miss.
The major let down with the Curve 9220 lies with it being a 2G device. However, that is the reason it is only being sold in countries where 2G is still widely used. The camera lacks some punch but we must remember this is an entry-level BlackBerry...
The BlackBerry Curve 9220 may be lacking in terms of having 3G onboard but aside from that it matches up to its big brother the Curve 9320 in most areas. If you are after a communication device first and foremost and are on a budget then the BlackBerry Curve 9220 may well suit your needs............
Well here there is a real bargain....
For any blackberry lover this is a must have....
Well first up are the PROS:
1) Amazing, simply an amazing qwerty keypad. It is a joy to text and type on this phone. It will definitely bring a smile to your face.
2) Display is decent and large enough for daily usage.
3) Decent app support from Blackberry World.
4) Newer Blackberry OS than Bold 9780
5) Sleek design and very good build quality.
6) Provides surprisingly fast 2G speeds and has wi-fi and bluetooth.
7) Pretty decent speakers on this phone too.
1) Battery life, well its not much....needs more juice.....has to be charged more than once daily.
2) Display is not very vibrant or detailed.
3) No 3G has to be a bummer in this day and age.
4) Only 512MB of RAM is an issue at times as RAM usage becomes 100% at times causing the phone to reboot.
But still....after all the good and bad sides of it....a good budget Blackberry Curve phone which one will definitely love!
This phone is as trendy as it's curvy!
Its design is very simple, and the phone is sleek and light. It's got something dazzling in it, that really tempts me. Speed/Performance
Speed is average, but that suits me; I have got used to it and it doesn't annoy me. Performance is good, because I bought it last year and it's in good shape still.
The colour of my phone is black, although white colour was also available.
Display and Touch
Thats quite satisfactory!
One and half days with normal usage.
Height 109mm/ 4.29 in
Width 60 mm / 2.36 in
Depth 12.7mm/ 0.5 in
Yes, portable with computer.
512 MB RAM with 32 GB expandable memory! Isnt that cool. Its the best part about BB!
2 M.P. Camera
5X Digital zoom
Quality or guarantee
Warranty for 18 months from the date of purchase!
The overall rating to this phone would be a 8 on 10.
Blackberry Curve 9200 is sleek and stylish phone with Blackberry OS 7.1. An excellent deal for those who still prefer buying QWERTY phones rather than touch screens.
* Keypad of the phone is of excellent quality.keys have not bacome loose even after 1 year of usage. Feels very good while typing/pressing buttons.
*Excellent build quality, sleek and stylish
*Battery backup is wonderful.Can last almost 2 days with wifi always on and with minimal usage(just for whatsapp and bbm)
*Phone heats up when any song is played at full volume on loudspeaker.
*Device runs somewhat slowwhen Facebook and Whatsapp are operated simultaneously. Hence this phone is not for multi tasking.
*Display is average.
*Since core blackberry services like bbm are now available on other OS. Hence it is better to buy an android or windows phone as they have got better app ecosystem than blackberry devices.
