syd, 17 Jul 2013its a better phone. blackberry please dont launch BBM on other brands. if so then bb will loos... moreu r right abt bb losing its reputation with launch of bbm on android, even android has launched some of its apps for bb users, i guess they r from os 2.3 gbread & run only on bb10 OS... not sure though.
As of q5; i liked it n plan to buy asap..
i m using curve 9300 right now, is q5 a good replacement??
adm, 19 Jul 2013i am in 2 minds regarding the Q5 and 9790 Bold. i just love all the specs etc on the Q5 but no... moreI like new Q5, but like Q10 i just miss those 5 missing buttons(call, menu, trackpad, return, end call) so thats the reason im not gonna get those.
BlacBerry plz make a phone like Q5 or Q10 with those missing buttons also and u will see success.
Touchscreen works just fine.
Keyboard is good.
Love my phone untill now.bought it yesterday at a tmobile store in Holland.
i am in 2 minds regarding the Q5 and 9790 Bold. i just love all the specs etc on the Q5 but not to sure about the full touch screen thing. i looked at a few video clip (review) it looks easy to use but in the same sentance it also seems that stuff that you use to do in 3 steps with normal blackberry phones, will take now 5 steps to do..... please can sum1 please give me their honest opinion on the Q5 - with the 9790 bold you have an option to use the phone as touch screen or "manual" with the keypads etc. i need to make my mind up before the end of today - i really do like the Q5 but the whole touch screen thing is putting me a bit off. have any1 experience any problems with the touch screen as yet?
Gary, 18 Jul 2013plz dun day so... i want bbm on ma nexus 4 mate !!It will release in september.
BlackBerry should create phones that are fully functional over general internet services offered by telecom providers instead of requiring the blackberry services.
Blackberry services should be optional for people who need the better encryption/security.
it is a combined phone of z10 and q10 thats why it has no optical trackpad has same features though
How is the buttons on the Q5 - especially that there is no scroll button etc on key pad like on the other bb phones
its a better phone. blackberry please dont launch BBM on other brands. if so then bb will loose its reputation.
I bought my Blackberry Q5 this morning from http://www.konga.com/products/q5-phone and just had it delivered. Its a great phone. Your review of it was so helpful.
