The Bottom Line While we're not huge fans of the design, the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8530 is a good choice for first-time smartphone buyers and offers more than its GSM counterpart. A few quibbles notwithstanding, the powerhouse HTC One is a beautifully crafted, near-ideal smartphone. The BlackBerry Bold 9930 is the best QWERTY BlackBerry to date, but should be priced lower. The design and specs of the affordable LG Optimus M+ surpass its predecessor's, but its data connection is poor even for MetroPCS.
