Summary: Read a lot of different reviews associated to the Blackberry Q5. Saw lots of negatives and a few positives, but in my opinion this is a very good phone. Phone reception seems good in all locations that I've been so far, messaging is easier than any Android or IPhone that I've ever used and the speed and overall functionality is exceptional. Bought this phone unlocked and that is the way it came, works fantastic on T-mobile in the states.
Summary: 1,why to choose this rate? A month later, cheaper $20! 2,what i like? the screen is great , no mater in the sunshine or at night. The camera is also great ,fast. Call sound more or less. 3,Some android app not run well , not enough BB app. Can not set the another browser(Opera) to the default one.I can not shield the pictures in the original browser, sometimes waste much data. 4, pls see 2. if u want buy one.
Summary: Half of the so-called expert reviews are junk because these bypass the main issues which an user faces everyday and critic on something which they feel relevant. Blackberry Q5 is a pretty good smartphone with a superb OS 10. It's fast, smooth and has no lag. It does not hang either (till now) even if one opens multiple applications. The screen is fairly decent in size for a comfortable viewing and the Qwerty keyboard is an added option.
Summary: My brother had asked me to get him a BB within a affordable range of prices. I got him this one and he is simply thrilled! Not only it has more features than the previous versions, but it also has the option of being used both touch screen and key pad... I have not used it, but seing the way he's in love with it, I can only say that it met his expectation. Great product.
Summary: The performance and features on this phone are great, such as Wifi direct, allshare, lots of supported video formats (including mkv), office, social apps and BBM has also improved, however the only negative I have is that the touchscreen does not feel as smooth as the Z10. When trying to close some applications or when trying to see the application list, the phone is sometimes non-responsive.
Summary: I've been using this phone for two weeks in Argentina. No issues so far. It was just what I expected. Does not work with my BB plan, though, gotta get a full data plan. Still, it works great. I'm replacing a torch 9860, and it feels like heaven to have keyboard again. The phone is not fancy, but seems a work-beast so far. No memory issues or whatsoever. Do not expect a stylish finish or a bold-type keyboard. However, its perfect for work. And delivers.
Summary: I bought this mobile phone for my father because he doesn't like all-touch phones. When I was setting it up, I was surprised for the speed of the OS, its really fast. It feels good to the hand, the keyboard is very nice and the touch sensitivity is ok too. The best is the multitasking feature. Its really easy to switch between apps that are runningn in background. It does this far better than iPhone.
Excerpt: You might not get the most for you money compared to other competitors of similar price but for me I wanted a smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard and this was the best I could find in the UK and it has not disappointed. Once you get to know the controls they feel natural and really effective. Display and design is really nice, simple but effective. It's a real step up from my last BlackBerry especially in terms of processing power.
