2018 now, still going strong, I'm now using Cyanogen Mod actual project Lineage, with Oreo 8.1! BQ Rocks!
i am an audiophile, i have almost all the best music phones from all the brands. Same way, i have in ear Headphones of all the brands, starting from 10 euros to costing me 300 euros. The Best combination for Music is only and only BQ m5 and JVC gumy plus fx5 ( costing you only 7-15 euros). Gumy plus responds from 10-20mhz, each and every freq is precise, Lows or mids or highs, it gives you best output. BQ m5 is the best Music phone, highest volume, best sound ever, no phone can compete BQ m5, may it be LG V20 or 30. G6. HTC, samsung or iphone. Now this phone is my master music phone. Simply Love it.
This phone is amazing came out in 2015 and still getting updates.it has nougat now and still runs fast if you treat it right
I must confess I'm won over as well, especially by the slick design. My only concern before buying was the screen protection (Asashi instead of Corning). But then I saw that Sony uses the same, so... I've had it for a month or so, and until now no scratch.
Great device overall, and thumbs up to BQ.
Great phone for the price. Snappy, nicely built, good battery and camera.
Can anybody tell me why I have no volume on my video clips. It has a restriction bar reaching 15 only. Even wearing headphones there is no sound.
Been using this phone for an year now and is nothing but awesome. Also it support Nougat and CM. I'm using 7.1.1 right now! :) Amazing piece of HW!

Please keep informed before giving wrong information to the rest of the users, I have two BQ phones, and I can tell you both of them arrived with charger. So I do not understand who may have told you that wrong information you have.
Just bought it 1 month ago an i confirm it is excellent, BQ support is amazing, they give you access to the tools to allow you to root and unlock your equipment. My advice: buy the 32Gb and 3 GB or ram version, install TWRP, root the device, unlock bootloader and install Cyanogen mod 13, for Aquaris M5 is piccollo version. Higly recomended phone.
I bought this phone without knowing it does not come with a charger and earphone. Thankfully I read some comments here and canceled order in time. If BQ believes chargers are hurting environment, they should stop manufacturing mobile phones as well as they constitute more of the hi-tech waste then chargers and earphone. Also missing fast charging which has otherwise become a very common feature.
