BlackBerry Q5

Channel5
4 October 2014
  • Summary: The BlackBerry Q5 is a reasonably well constructed smartphone with a productive keyboard and a sharp screen. That’s the issue though: it’s only reasonably well made when you should expect excellence, and the problems with BlackBerry 10 remain, especially the dire lack of apps.

BlackBerry Q5 review: an awful phone

gearburn.com
8 March 2014
  • Conclusion: Personally, I’m sick and tired of BlackBerrys. It’s time that the world moves on. There’s Android and iOS. Pick one of those devices and try to propel your digital life forwards in a meaningful way.

BlackBerry Q5 video review: still hating it

gearburn.com
8 March 2014
  • Excerpt: If there’s one thing Gearburn editor Steven “not biased to BlackBerry” Norris hates, it’s the Q5. In his fairly damning review , Norris outlines mostly negatives aspects of what is an overpriced and essentially broken device. His video review isn’t much better.

  • Summary: It is really quite sad to see how things have played out for BlackBerry. The once dominant smartphone manufacturer has lost a lot of its lustre. While the Q10 and Z10 were brilliant in their own ways, the one thing that was holding them back was the premium price tag.
  • Pros: 4G LTE support, Battery life, Bright and vibrant display, microSD card support
  • Cons: Small display, Non-removable battery, So-so physical keyboard

  • Excerpt: I have had a little over a week now to play around with the new BlackBerry Q5 , the second BlackBerry 10 device to be offered up with a physical keyboard.

  • Pros: Lightweight, feels good in hand, Snappy and responsive OS, Keyboard is great despite the clicky keys
  • Cons: Low resolution camera, Non-removable battery, Hard to grip at times

  • Summary: If you love a physical keyboard and are looking for an inexpensive alternative to the Q10, the Q5 is for you. Available in a variety of colors and at a more affordable price, the Q5 will find it's place among new users and emerging markets with no problem.
  • Pros: Great battery life, Sturdy, feels good in hand, Inexpensive by comparison, Keyboard is nice (for the most part)
  • Cons: No removable battery, Low resolution camera, No HDMI out, Overall plastic design feels lacking

  • Summary: If you are a Blackberry fan and want to catch up with the latest BB10 operating system and do not want to spend a lot of money on the top end Q10, Z10 then the Q5 is a great option for you. It has all the standard Blackberry features you may want like BBM and security.
  • Pros: Very good display with a full QWERTY buttons keypad, BBM and the top end BB security.
  • Cons: The number of Apps is very limited compared to Apple and Android. Only 8 Gigs memory

  • Conclusion: At the end of my time with the Q5 I wasn’t sad to see it go like I was with the Q10 which is such a shame as I had hoped the Q5 could be a phone I could live with day to day as its cheaper to buy but it still possesses the power and quality of the Q10 in a cheaper body, but it really did disappoint...
