Summary: Everything about this Q5 smartphone spells Success...The form, size and function are perfect, the battery performance is astounding and value is Best by a long shot !! Best smartphone for my busy hectic workday !!
Summary: I was on the phone with someone for 1.5 hours and when I checked the phone it still had some ridiculously high amount of battery life left. It was either 78% or 82%. Either way, that is impressive. I love that the keys are spaced farther apart so typing is much easier than on the BB Curve. I am still getting used to it, but overall I like the phone. The combo of touch and keyboard is great. Some of the stuff is not intuitive.
Summary: Excellent size, it's smaller compare to its BB brothers, but feels comfortable to grab and handle, and it's very light. File administrator works great, very easy access. Hub alows you to personalize it according to your needs and has a great location, you can follow the apps you put there without open them which allows you to save up some data. Voice commander it's better from last versions, very accurate.
Excerpt: The Blackberry 10 experience is very diferent from the Legacy Blackberry, it takes some time to adapt, but after a few day you will find that is the most intuitive OS on the market. The Q5 is actually a striped Q10, the specs may not be impresive but the phone performs verry well. Never had a bug in more than a mouth since I have it, great multitasker, very fast native browser.
Pros: battery life, fast browser, Typing experience, Blackberry Hub, Time Shift, great multitasker, sound quality
Cons: looks cheap, headphones that you find in the retail box are horrible, non removable battery
Summary: I sold my iPhone for this BB Q5. I love it, great phone, easy to use, comes with an app to work with MS office docs, You can use for games if that is what you're into, but I use my phone for communication, not games. This has it all. BB is going to make, don't believe the nay sayers out there, why are all the iPhone and Android users downloading BB Messaging if they thought BB was so bad. This is a secure phone too, serious users all over the world trust BB.
A really good value if you are looking for a solid smartphone with a physical keyboard

Summary: This phone is a great combination of physical keyboard and the BB10 OS. The phone is light and easy to carry around. I've dropped it several times already and not even a scratch, so it has a sturdy build just like most BlackBerry devices. The keyboard is comfortable to use. Battery life is really good. Lasts all day even with Wi-Fi on. The cameras (front facing and rear facing) are nothing special but get the job done.
