Practicality of a blackberryIf you don't own a blackberry already, and are in the market for buying a new smartphone, you generally start out by comparing its specs with android phones in the same range to check for the wide range of apps that you can run.

worst service everi had bought this phone 1 years ago. suddenly a few buttons like a and return was not working. sent to service center . they declined to repair it. gave some technical reason. the bad part is they charge 220 even if they do nothing

Been a good run with BB... butIm a Blackberry user, have worked on this and the piece is (was) pretty good until RIM came out with their 'closing down' news! With all the Andys and Apples out there, its become tough for the manufacturers to compete. Cant remember the last time when they came with an OS update for 8250!So, if you really want to buy a smarty for a long go, stay away from BB, Cause BB without Blackberry Internet Service is gonna suck bad!

NOT WORTH BUYING BLACKBERRYDelivery from flipkart was good

Awesome refreshing experience!!First let me tell you that this is not just another phone in the market. This is a Blackberry that brings with it style and status quotient. Curve 8520 is an entry-level BB phone with almost all features that can be found in top-level BB. It is worth every penny of its cost!!

Nokia E5 offers much more at the same priceI am using BlackBerry Curve 8520 and Nokia E5 and I find E5 a better phone. GPS in Nokia E5 works great and has many times helped me to find the way but BB 8520 does not have GPS. In Nokia E5 you can edit word documents and rename the documents and create new word files. In E5 pdf files can be viewed clearly. In BB 8520 you can not create new word documents. pdf files can be viewed but the quality of the view is very poor. It's inbuilt memory is too small. The worst part is the availability of themes and applications. Nothing seems to be free and there's a price tag attached to most of the use… (Expand)

Unbiased Review - DO NOT BUY.I know it can be disorienting to have extraordinary and terrible reviews slapped in your face one after the other. But it is always better to see if negative reviews outweigh positives, and in the case of BB Curve 8520 - that is exactly the scenario.

Averagewell i personally bought it for just showing off purpose...coz a bb is not that useful anyways...positive aspects of the phone are that it has a very nice camera...comparing your nokia, samsung 2MP cameras and a BB 2MP camera...BB was thumbs up, speakers are pretty impressive(very loud), internet surfing is quite fast provided on a wifi network.

Good Phoneits a great phone the keypad is the best feature of this phone, i.m's work great. however certain applications are a bit slow but too much shouldn't be expected at this price range. browsing speed is excellent for a 2g phone. Screen clarity is awesome.
