Battery life vs 9700
I have been using a Bold 9700 for the last couple of years - which is now coming to the end of its life. I was wondering what the battery life was like compared to the Bold 9700. One of the main attractions of the Bold is it's battery life so I was wondering whether the battery life of the 9360 is.comparable?

I came from a Bold 9700 and I can say no the 9360's battery life is not comparable. I have to charge every day, approx every 6-8 hours. Still, I like my Curve. OS 7.1 is faster, and offers better integrated/native apps than OS5. Browser is mighty improved and boot times are a third of 9700. Also the 9360 is lighter than 9700 and is more comfortable to carry in shirt/pants pocket.

Agree, I had a 9700 too. The battery life is not comparable. Since the battery is much smaller. But i still like the Curve for the reasons mentioned above by wolfdale. The 9360 is very pocketable, i can barely feel it in my pocket. If battery life is a concern but you still want to get a OS 7 device, you can go for the 9320. It has a 1450mah battery. Though the camera is only 3.2 mp non-autofocus, the resolution of the screen is lower, there's no NFC. Its up to your wants and needs.
