Quick Review of BlackBerry Q5

The Good
  • The physical keyboard is one of the best keyboards to type on mobile
  • Battery backup easily gets you by a whole day
  • Screen is bright and colours are true, good outdoor visibility
  • Due to the space between screen & top of keyboard, there is room for gestures unlike on Q10
The Bad
  • The squared aspect ratio of the screen is awkward and takes time to get used to
  • App ecosystem on Blackberry in general is poor
  • The design has no flair and the phone feels a little cheap
  • Performance is not the most fluid, as there are stutters in UI

BlackBerry Q5 Features

The BlackBerry Q5 is a mid-range, and currently the cheapest offering running BlackBerry 10 OS. When compared to the premium BlackBerry Q10, there are a few changes that distinguish the two. First and foremost, the Q5 is more youthful-looking, differs in the design of the QWERTY keys and has a plasticky appearance. The Q10 is a world-phone supporting both CDMA and GSM networks, but the Q5 supports only GSM. But on the bright side, it retains LTE; the next generation high-speed internet technology. Instead of Super AMOLED, BlackBerry has chosen to go with an IPS touchscreen panel in the Q5, but maintains the same 720 x 720 pixel resolution in a 3.1-inch screen size. Memory is halved to 8GB, and the processor is a slightly slower 1.2GHz dual-core variant (the Q10 has a 1.5GHz dual-core). But both fortunately have 2GB of RAM. The camera is also downgraded from an 8MP sensor to a 5MP one at the back, but the Q5 has the same 2MP front-facing camera for video calls. Battery capacity is almost the same at 2180 mAh.
