I had 8520 then 9720 then q5 and even went to a newer classic and then back to q5.
The main reasons I like the q5, small and light weight. Good touch screen, great keyboard, better than average battery life.
The classic was better in terms of specs but I found the screen over sensitive and the keyboard not as good as the one piece on the q5 and 9720 etc. The battery life was far better before I activated it on a bes 12. I could get days out of it with just browsing and whatsapp. Now its on bes 12 I am getting 2 days on full charge, still better than smartphones.
The down side is that the screen resolution and size is small, but you get used to it.
If you like me and sit on desktop pc most of the day and own a tablet and looking for a mobile phone that is small and durable and good battery with 4g and the rest, then i recommend it out of nearly any other phone at the moment.
sambokelly, 21 Nov 2015My Q5 only allows 2G, once I try 3G or 4G then the network disappears. Please help. Your network disappear because there is no 3g or 4g tower nearby. 4g is stil new so very litle chance of 4g signal. Goto big areas with exelent reception for 3g and mayby 4g
What u do think about the battery life? And WiFi and 3G signal and is screen bad when u use it outside doors?
And what about is speakers is it any good?

Does the blackberry Q5 have the same issue with internet/mail like the Curve 9360 running BB OS 7.0? The internet on Curve 9360 would work spuriously without the BBIS/wifi only. Opera Mini, Viber, podcasts does not work without the BBIS. I wonder if these new models with BB OS 10.0 have same issues, or would work flawlessly on wifi only like the androids.
Your comments will be highly appreciated.
