I am currently using the q5 and a couple of things i'd like to point out from a consumers perspective. To start with are the apps, all important apps are unavailable for this phone, Facebook is not updated (No chat, can't view pictures via messaging and cannot tag people via comments) WeChat not available and viber as well. Battery is very week for a handheld with a reputation for massive email messaging. lastly, it overheats. yes. It overheats.
doing as much research as possible on the Q5, got an incetive at work with the possibility of winning one! need all the help I need ;)

I bought mine, blackberry Q5 white a week ago and it was so amazing!! as of now I don't encounter any problem except for the new gesture, I think. But all in all, battery, BB10, response and experience is awesome!!
I love this mobile, so easy to operate compare in the previous OS for blackberry model. This fone is very superfast, very smooth. Just like I'm browsing with my nexus 7 tab.... Much excited for the next update for OS 10.2 that will allow to install android apps. Yah right the next update is fully amazing with jelly bean runtime.. I can't wait for that update....
Number one thing to note on all bb10 devices is that there is absolutely no comparison to the old devices. it is completely different and advanced software. as for the q5 its a good starter device but you are losing the htmi port and the ability to switch out batteries. The battery however, is actually better than that of the z10.

I think it's good phone, I like it but it's very hard to operate this phone especially when we want to switch between one application to other or exit or back to home screen. No back button it's worst... it's very stressful and finally I decide to restart the phone when I want back to home screen. Can you imagine? any body ca help me? my conclusion it's not smart phone, you meed to be very smart, patient beside that it's useless phone. I hope there are any better update that provide home screen button.

Bght d... moreThis isn't a step back for RIM, it is a step forward seeing as they have made a budget phone so people who can't afford Rims tops products can still have a blackberry. Clearly some specs will be cut back that the Q10 does not have simply because this is a lot cheaper phone than the Q10. Also any problems you were having are problems you could have avoided if you researched and used one before you paid for it or getting into a contract. Not to mention some is common research that you can do to figure out solutions instead of rambling on and bashing the company. If you wanted people to take you seriously you would have used better english as well,
