An affordable smartphone for the entry level that's excellent for those who want to predominantly message. Conversely, the small display and app experience can't match rival devices.

Cheap construction and poor quality display

from PhoneArena
In the greater scheme of things, $50 might seem like a dandy deal for the Curve 9315, but when the platform experience is outdated, combined with the handset’s cheap feel, it doesn’t make it a prized possession against other comparable smartphones. At this point folks, unless you’re firmly in love with the old platform, you’re better off waiting for RIM’s next-generation BlackBerry OS 10 devices. And honestly, even though it’s an aged device, you’re still better investing your money in something else like the Bold 9900... Full review

A retro BlackBerry that doesn't satisfy our business or leisure needs

from Expert Reviews
With the Curve 9320, the BlackBerry brand has gone back to its roots with a simple QWERTY keyboard, a squat and chunky design, no touchscreen and a focus on BlackBerry Messenger. The Curve 9320 is also retro in specification, having a 2.4in display, 512MB of RAM and 512MB of storage space for your apps. This specification is probably why the Curve 9320 is colloquially known as the Kiddie Curve, because it’s perfect for young people with great eyesight and no need for a more powerful phone...

BlackBerry phones have never been about flashy graphics or powerful processors

from GSMArena

The BlackBerry Curve 9320 is not a bad phone in its own right. It offers an established, functional platform with a no-fuss interface alongside elegant styling. However, at the midrange price point, there are simply better-equipped devices to be had.

The Curve 9320 is not the last of its species perhaps and definitely not the worst. There's plenty of people who still want a proper phone - meaning one with buttons and such. They would love a neat and to-the-point QWERTY messenger with secure email. But RIM seems to be less and less interested in that kind of users and in their game pla... Full review

Good battery life and good loud speaker but low resolution display

from Fone Arena

This tiny device is definitely powerful with the 806 MHz processor. The 512MB RAM makes you multitask easily with quite a number of apps running in the background. 512MB internal memory with an optional micro SD card expansion slot is a plus. The 1450 mAh battery lasts for 2 complete days, with Always on Push email on EDGE, few hours of Music, FM Radio, few calls and messaging. If you are on 3G, then it should last more than a day. The camera is better than the one in 9220 but the LED flash could have been better. The only problem with the device is the low resolution qVGA display at 164 pp... Full review


Great keyboard, good build quality, and easy to use core features

from TrustedReviews
There's no two ways about it, the BlackBerry Curve 9320 isn't a phone that will excite many of you. Its screen is small and low resolution and the selection of apps on offer is fairly poor. But, if you're in the market for an upgrade to your old budget BlackBerry or you just want a capable messaging-oriented smartphone with a great keyboard then this phone is well worth a look...

The BlackBerry Curve 9320 is average in almost every way but will still appeal to BlackBerry fans

from T3
RIM no longer produces smartphones that compete with the desirability of Apple products and the younger market which once craved BBM is now rapidly migrating to cheap yet stylish Android smartphones and iPhones which now boast iMessage, a more than capable BBM rival.The BlackBerry Curve 9320 is average in almost every way but will still appeal to BlackBerry fans and anyone after a best in class keyboard and upgraded BBM. As a smartphone, it’s actually one of the simplest ones out there... Full review

Affordable, great for messaging, good battery life

from Pocket-lint
Overall, there isn't much that the BlackBerry Curve 9320 doesn't do. Apart from the lack of NFC, now a feature of high-end BB handsets, and a touch interface, you pretty much get everything that Blackberry offers. Sure, you don't get the best hardware, the device isn't the best when it comes to build and specification, but this is a very affordable smartphone... Full review

It's not trying to be better than it is

from TechRadar
What we like about the BlackBerry Curve 9320 is that it's honest. It's not trying to be better than it is and is quite happy to portray itself as a budget smartphone with a few little extras.And for the people it's aimed at, those who want a phone that makes calls, sends texts/emails and has a good battery, it comes up trumps. Web browsers and cameras are nice to have, but won't swing a sale here. So on that basis, it gets a thumbs up... Full review

Good quality QWERTY keypad, excellent build quality, but small display

from Dial-a-Phone

To the most ardent tech lover, buying a BlackBerry at the moment may seem unwise since RIM have made it known that it is building a whole new OS which won’t be available for older devices. However, there are many who have always loved the BlackBerry for what it is – an excellent platform for emailing, texting and composing social network messages.

To this end, the Curve 9320 does the job very, very well. RIM has years of experience creating devices of this kind, gradually evolving the design in small ways, such as adding the optical trackpad. The expertise that has gone into the p... Full review

A nice, simple smartphone, one that is sure to appeal to Blackberry fans

from The Inquirer
The Blackberry Curve 9320 is a nice, simple smartphone, one that is sure to appeal to Blackberry fans. Considering its mere £130 price tag, it's a great phone for those looking to enter the smartphone world, namely those who prefer the feel of physical keys to virtual alternatives. It's not going to win any high-end smartphone prizes, but this budget blower has managed to win our hearts... Full review
