Design and Body


BlackBerry Curve 9380 has a form that could be considered the same as the BlackBerry 9360, differing only in the front of the field is filled with a touch screen. Berdimesi 109 x 60 x 11.2 mm and weighs approximately 98 grams, making the handset is light and thin so it is easy to carry.



The top of the face are the earpiece and LED indicator lights and there is a touch screen measuring 3.2 inches with a resolution of 360 x 480 pixels, and also the presence of the trackpad, 4 the standard BlackBerry functions. At the back there is a camera and LED flash at the top and bottom of the speaker. Just like the Curve 9360, the battery cover has a BlackBerry logo and is made of glossy plastic so easy to get dirty with finger spots. Backdoor BlackBerry Curve 9380 has a connector on the inside of the NFC.





On the left side there are only a USB micro holes. On the right side there are volume buttons, mute button (located between the volume), and the camera button (to change its function). The top there is a 3.5mm headset holes and lock button. The bottom looks plain. We found a fairly large cavity at the bottom of the function keys, so that dust and dirt can easily enter into this handset.





Interface


BlackBerry Curve 9380 using BlackBerry OS 7, which is the latest OS for the BlackBerry today. The quality of the display screen is quite bright and clear to pamper your eyes. But because the screen resolution is not too large, then the picture looks a little icon boxes, less subtle. Haptic feedback feature is also missing in this handset, so according to our experience in the selection screen feel less



7 OS interface is divided into several tabs that can slide to the left nor to right, are:
• All: contains all the applications on your BlackBerry
• Favorites: shows the applications that you have marked as favorites
• Media: Media display the contents of folders such as Music, Pictures, Videos, Video Camera, Podcast, Music Store
• Downloads: contains the application you've downloaded
• Frequent: contains the applications that you frequently use

Input Text


For text input, Curve 9380 using the virtual keyboard to choose the order such as the Full QWERTY, Sure Type, and Multi-Tap. Fairly good level of sensitivity of the keyboard, we do not have any problems during the process of typing. For some menus we can come up or eliminate the appearance of the keyboard.





But for physical buttons BlackBerry functions (call, menu, back, hang up) feels a little hard pressed and unfortunate enough why not just use a capacitive button. Because for those of you who used to hold the touch-screen handset (especially Android) you will feel awkward when they want to press the function key after using the touch screen.


Contacts


Contact in the BlackBerry menu looks the same as the other BlackBerry smartphones. Perform simple and arranged in alphabetical order of names.

As you know, fuel is sealed, it can only be invited through a pin, a fast and accurate delivery (depending on the connection), the ability to send images, sounds, location, and more. Especially when this fuel can be connected with applications that already support, so that the activities of messaging becomes more interesting and fun.


Next PIN message, you can send a PIN message to the destination address. Its function is similar to the email addresses are only using the PIN.

SMS features are also not forgotten. Shown with a simple format such as chat thread. Where internet connections are not reliable, which is the SMS feature your helper.

This camera has a kind of focus EDoF (Extended Depth of Field) or Full Focus. So the results are good for taking pictures with a distance / overall. Unlike the Auto Focus, which is based on one point. But still, for shooting at close range and focus of the text of this EDoF unfavorable outcome.


Menu This camera has features such as Geotagging, LED Flash, and Scene Modes to choose from.

Browser
Browser on the BlackBerry Curve 9380 somewhat qualified. When we try to open a website TeknoUp.com full version, loading the rendering process was fast and good too. Although the position of the zoom out, but some posts are still legible.

For multitab ability we have tried up to 30 tabs and still could add a new tab, but began to feel the lag.
