BlackBerry Curve 9320 is an entry level device, which are popular in emerging markets. RIM lacks anything particularly interesting in the top-end segment, but its Curve family has been successful in many emerging markets.
The Curve 9320 is equipped with a 2.44” (320 x 240) TFT display. It’s decent for a low-end handset, but certainly not impressive due to its small display size and resolution. The display is not protected by scratch resistant layer, you should purchase a sperate screen protector immeditaly.
The Curve 9320 uses BlackBerry OS 7.1, which brings all the usual features. The homescreen looks ordinary with navigation bar above and shortcuts at the bottom. Users can open recent apps by pressing the BlackBerry key for a few seconds. The phone comes with a few built-in apps, such as Facebook, Twitter, Maps, YouTube, Documents To Go, Calculator, Password Keeper and BlackBerry Protect.
The phone uses 3.2Mp rear-facing camera with Extended Depth of Field Technology. It snaps decent shots for a low-end device and the LED flash can help to remove some of the graininess when taking picture in dim places. The camera has fixed focus and close up shots may end-up blurry. You can only record VGA videos and the stabilization feature should make videos look less shaky.
BlackBerry Messaging is often the sole reason for buying a BlackBerry device. In the BlackBerry 9320, users can easily enable the feature using the physical BBM button.
Cnnectivity options include WiFi, HSDPA 7.2Mbps, HSUPA 5.76Mbps and Bluetooth 2.1 + A2DP, while the A-GPS is usable for the navigational feature and location-based apps.
The 806MHz processor and 512MB of RAM are adequate for running a number of apps simultabeously. The 512MB of onboard storage is inadequate in many cases, but the external memory slot supports up to 32GB of microSD card.
The BlackBerry Curve 9320 is an attractive handset in the entry-level category due to its dedicated BBM key, good loudspeaker, decent battery life, 3G connection and FM radio, although the small screen size and display resolution are small.
