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.
Summary: This is the fourth my BB phone.I like it. First time when i get it, i was a little confused about the sim card slot. Then I've changed my old sim for micro size sim. Wery good qwerty buttons, simple but so good thing. Fast device. No classic "menu" or "escape" buttons. Funny! But battery is draining too fast. It has one significant problem, though - it's way too slippery.It's black plastic, and it's unbelievably slick to the touch.
Summary: Just after ordering the new Q5 to replace my old Bold 9700 which was chewing up batteries, I realised the Q5 had an internal battery that could not be replaced and thought I was going to be in trouble again so ordered the PowerGen PGMPP12000 12000mAh External Battery Pack as back up just in case.
Summary: I didnt like the cramped nature of the Q10's keyboard, on testing the Q5, i found it much nicer to use and it felt better in the hand. So i dumped the Q10 and got this, all its missing in comparison is the hdmi out. If your a keyboard fan, get the Q5.
Summary: I love it. I love it's gesture based UI. It just seems so intuitive compared to android (I've had a Motorola Milestone, Nexus S, Orange San Diego, HTC One SV, Samsung Galaxy S3). In android, when I'm in an application, so often I would press the 'back' key and instead of going back to the previous screen it would instead just exit the whole thing because it's an inconsistent command and is different in different apps, so I'm regularly closing apps without meaning to.
Excerpt: Prachtig toestel, even wennen qua gebruik door combinatie van touchscreen en toetsenbord. Scherp beeld op scherm. Heb de indruk dat er meer functies dieper liggen dan wat je onmiddellijk ziet. Nog even uitzoeken waar ik die kan vinden. Prima upgrade van BB Bold. Lang getwijfeld over iPhone en BB, maar uiteindelijk toch gezwicht voor toetsenbord, ondanks moeilijker syncro met MacBookPro. Ook syncro met BB Bold lastig wegens opzeggen speciale BB contract met Proximus.
Pros: touch screen, duidelijke user interface, handig gebruik, dubbele camera
