BlackBerry Q5 Review

Tech2
30 August 2013
  • Summary: The first piece of good news is that the Q5 is substantially cheaper than the Q10 . BlackBerry has had to cut down on some key specifications and the materials used to build it, but overall you’re left with a very good experience that comes close to its more expensive brethren. However, Rs 24,990 is still quite expensive for the Q5 as we would peg the value of the handset at not more than Rs 20,000.

BlackBerry Q5 review

Engadget
18 July 2013
  • Summary: The BlackBerry Q5 isn't a bad handset, but it carries the weight of disappointment when you realize that it's not just a stripped-down Q10. Had it been, we'd probably be far more appreciative of the hardware, but as it stands we have two objections we simply can't get past. First things first , the price.
  • Pros: Long battery life, Excellent backlight
  • Cons: Uncomfortable keyboard, Small, 3.1-inch display, Slow performance, Expensive for what it is

  • Summary: The BlackBerry Q5 has a bright, sharp screen and its physical keyboard will certainly appeal to dedicated BlackBerry fans. Its software still leaves much to be desired though, the app store is miserable, and at £320, it's not the budget BlackBerry we were hoping for.
  • Cons: Too expensive; BlackBerry 10 software is far from perfect; App store is miserably empty; key specs won't trouble most Android phones.

  • Excerpt: It has that iconic BlackBerry smartphone look with a square screen situated above the buttoned keyboard. One of the only clues that tells us it's a modern BlackBerry phone running BlackBerry 10 OS is the absence of any trackpad or thumbstick.

BlackBerry Q5 review

Pocket Lint
9 July 2013
  • Excerpt: With the flagship Z10 and Q10 BlackBerry handsets out of the way, attention turns to something further down the scale, the BlackBerry Q5, a Qwerty handset that doesn't quite hit all the highs of the Q10.
  • Pros: Most affordable route to BB10, keyboard action is nice, makes a great messenger device
  • Cons: Feels cheap, battery not great, performance is rather lacklustre

  • Conclusion: Il BlackBerry Q5 è uno smartphone di fascia media venduto a un prezzo troppo elevato per la sua qualità complessiva, in particolare quella dei componenti estetici ma anche per la sua scheda tecnica, non proprio al top, a parte il supporto alle reti LTE, un punto in più rispetto alla concorrenza. Le dimensioni particolari dello schermo non consentono una comoda navigazione nel Web, anche se va detto che il browser è molto veloce.
  • Pros: Wi-Fi e Bluetooth; BBM Messenger; Tastiera qwerty; Display touchscreen; Fotocamera frontale; Browser molto veloce; Autonomia; Supporto LTE
  • Cons: Fotocamera non all’altezza; Materiali costruttivi; Batteria non rimovibile; Prezzo rispetto alla qualità; Processore dual-core; No porta HDMI; No supporto LTE
