I've been using the Q5 for one week now and it is pure joy. I can't believe how much phone I got for how little money. I *do not* use the phone for photos, music or videos, but with a microSD card I could easily expand the memory and use it for music and videos. The screen is small, so extended video use doesn't make sense. And the camera is not the best, but I don't need the device for that. I *do* use the phone a lot for Evernote, Dropbox, Emails, Calendar and social media (Facebook, Twitter...). The Q5 is a powerhouse - all the apps are seamlessly interconnected with each other and the OS. The device has a plethora of customisation options. And the keyboard, predictive text and multi-language support is genius. No more typos, misspellings and missing accents! Fantastic. I feel like I have discovered a hidden gem. Why is the whole world not obsessed with this phone? It is so unassuming - it will never get stolen - but has all the power of the new BB OS 10, touch screen function as per the latest on the market, and blackberry hub. And in a couple months with the 10.3 upgrade it will have all the Android apps and music library from the Amazon store, too. Well pleased. If you want all the power of the best smartphone for running your life, but don't want to take out a loan to get the latest bleeding-edge device, then this phone is for you.
Khalid, 28 Jun 2014Can we open the back cover of this mobile phone Black berry Q 5 and view the Battery?? No you cannot
It's a great phone with good os as a general but really it makes me like I want to grab this BlackBerry os developer head and scream duuuuh waru thinking of the fb is terrible why in name of god haven't u updated the freekin App like the android app why the trucaller isn't combined with the phone log so it could look up the unknown no's why the fb messenger is that bad the android apps work with it but it's not built for that purpose so the screen dimensions doesn't fit with all the aderoid apps so it's big dilemma to me and don't get me wrong the device is one hell of phone the os it's not open like the android but after all it doesn't matter if it's not that open its not a tab it's just a phone for god sake but a slight care for the major apps the os and the that empty poor room so called BlackBerry world won't harm

Good phone. terrible smart device.
Terrible App support via blackberry world or amazon android app store.
Apps loaded from both of these places which work on another BB10 device (z10) do not work on this.
I do prefer this keypad to the z10's touch screen. but the Z10's display, screen real estate, and other features definitely make it the better BB10 device
