Default Blackberry 9320 or 9360?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all, I'm currently looking to upgrade my 9300 to one of the latest curve models, I've had a look at the 9320 and I can't help but feel as though it looks really cheap, I know it's a budget phone but come on! I do like the 9360 a lot, the only think that puts me off is the battery problems that seems to be a common occurance, I need a single charge to last at least 12 hours. My current 9300 I charge over night and then use during the day, mainly for browsing, social networking, sending emails and a few texts I rarely call and I can get a good 24 hours use out of it on a good day, I just don't want to go spending an extra 40-50 on a phone that has much better specs for it to fail when I need it most. I can't go for any of the other Blackberry models as my budget is 180, can anyone reassure me as to the 9360's battery life? Has anyone owned either or both and could advise which I should go for? Also I've seen 3rd party batteries for sale which are a higher capacity than the standard Blackberry 1000mAh used in the 9360, does anyone have any experience of these? Or do you know if RIM plan to release a higher capacity battery for the 9360?

Thanks

Selection of a model is something each user needs to do after looking at each and if possible trying them at a store or friends unit. As for battery, every unit has limits based on apps and use. I have a 9810 and one corporate app drains the battery in about 2 hours if left on. I have to keep it close to a charger.

Ask around and see if anyone has experience in the same apps you might use.

Thanks for your reply, the only apps I use are things like Facebook/Twitter and rarely news/sports apps, I think I'll probably go for the 9360, I've heard that OS7.1 has a battery saving application built in prolonging the battery life.

I would get the 9360 if it were me. The 9320 has a very cheap feel to me.

I average around 2%/hour battery loss on my 9630 in standby mode, set to 2G, Wifi on and location services on. I have a 7.1 build.
