Review: BlackBerry Curve 9370 for Verizon
Images I captured with the 9370 were decent enough to look at, but few of them were excellent. Indoor shots showed a lot of grain and soft focus. Outdoor shots were more accurately in focus, and white balance was fine. The flash is pretty bright, but doesn't have a lot of range. You'll easily capture Facebook-worthy shots and won't be embarrassed to share them — at least as far as the quality of the image is concerned.
The Curve 9370's maximum video capture resolution is a lowly VGA (640 x 480 pixels). With a 5-megapixel sensor, RIM could easily have enabled this device to shoot at 720p HD. VGA resolution is an insult to today's smartphone buyer. It's no surprise at all that the quality of the video capture with the 9370 is sorely lacking. It is full of grain, exposure is off, and focus is seemingly a concept with which RIM's engineers must be completely ignorant.
