I need a real user response on this please.
I'm thinking of giving BlackBerry a second chance (I've been a sole BB user until Torch 9860, then started looking elsewhere). Now that I'm looking at the new BB10 devices, I got a bit confused between Q5 and Q10.
The only solid difference I found between them is the camera resolution and the type of display, other differences are minimal (1.2 vs 1.5 processor, support 64GB memory vs. 32GB...etc).
My question, can anyone advice if the change really worth the price difference between them? I'm in UAE and Q10 costs around ($700) while Q5 is around ($390).
Thank you in advance.

Is anyone e... moreHello, I have noticed a similar issue, but it is a while that it is not occurring. Maybe it is / was a bug in the OS. The screen sometimes turned black after the second or third ring, so I just swiped the screen up and than I could answer to the call. Now everything is OK.
The following is just for the sake of mentioning it, although you surely already know it. When receiving calls, prior to answering, the bottom half of the screen is black and there are arrows pointing downwards to a phone icon. The upper half of the screen is in my case blue, I think it depends of the wallpaper. To answer the call, one has to touch, hold and drag the name or the number of the caller, which is in the middle of the screen, to the bottom. To decline the call, one has to touch & hold the caller's info and drag it upwards. If one just touches the bottom half of the screen the call is silenced.
What I occasionally miss is the possibility to decline a call with a txt message. There are news that this option will be available in the 10.2 update.

I do encounter several of the problems highlighted by some of you, such as 'it does not recognise incoming contact from overseas( though they are saved in your contacts), so only shows the foreign number, with no name to it..
Not found a solution yet..but few troubles brewing, just after 3-4 mths of usage. Today, I am unable to delete any of my existing sms..can someone help please>
I have a BB9780 and really like Blackberry. They could have done well if they would have only came out with the Q10 and Q5 and kept the send/end/return/menu/trackpad with a little more reasonable price. They would have saved the company. Instead, they try to attract the iphone and android users when that's not their market except for the one's that used to be core BB users. The Q10 is still probably the best qwerty phone on the market based on what owners have said but I have tried the Samsung B5330 and it's worth a try for BB users that aren't happy. It's an inexpensive test to see if you can switch to android. I am a longtime BB user and prefer to stick with a BB.
