After having owned a few Curves I was happy to see that RIM was coming out with the Curve 9360. At first I was blown away by the thin and sexiness of this phone, but after that wore off, some issues began to surface. The keyboard makes a "creaking" sound when I type. Its annoying and loud enough for someone sitting next to me to hear. Also, the plastics are better quality than the previous Curves, but it still feels like it is missing that extra touch. The camera is amazing and when you take off the preview setting, you can almost take pictures at rapid fire mode. The browser is an improvement, but still lacks. Battery life was ok, but could have been better. The new processor is good, but the phone seems to lag at times even with this improvement. Overall a good starter phone, but not a phone to compare against Droids and the I Phone....unfortunately. The overall UI experience is an improvement, but it lacks the definition and diversity of other OS phones.
