good points for anyone that's used a blackberry before on the 8XXX or 9XXX range this one runs blackberry 10 and supports skype and kik so you can use it not just for business emails but also to chat to your friends when your not at work also with blackberry 10 you no longer need a BIS (Blackberry data plan) this will work on a normal plan from any network provider.
the only thing i'm disappointed with is after the facebook app update in may 2016 it now go's to the site instead of the app and as everyone knows using the site ver is full of ad's and not very data friendly other than that its a good phone
seems like after 31st December most of the software wont work, already facebook turned off, whatsapp will be turned off, then whats the use of it ???
So long I've been BB fanboy, using it for work, while android is for gaming & entertainment only
mdsagar, 12 Mar 2016How to install apk file? Is really BlackBerry q5 support apk file?Yes it does.
I tried to install APK watts-app of Android, and it worked.
But for watts-app only there is a small problem, I cant send pictures or attachments.
So I am using BB World version until the genius bros in India find a solution for this problem :D
Sam, 22 Jun 2016Is this Q5 have Dual Sim???

BlackBerry and Dual Sim do not mix :D
Jahanzaib, 01 Jul 2016I want to buy it, my all colleagues wants me to buy good android than this. can any one send m... moreI have a Q5 and another android device.
When I'm in a hurry, I use my BB Q5 to make quick phone calls, any texting, e-mailing, internet search...etc.
I use the android device for Facebook Messenger, SOMA, Line and other communications apps, as well as multimedia entertainment.
But the truth is that BB Q5 is more effecient than Android, it seldom hangs, It never counts on dummy dump memory files.
If you need an extra android device, go for Motorola Moto G 3rd Gen / Moto G4 or Lenovo (Rebadged Moto) which offers good prices, Or LG G3 / G4.
The best android experience is available at Nexus devices which support pure android.
