BlackBerry Q5

 

With the flagship Z10 and Q10 BlackBerry handsets out of the way, attention turns to something further down the scale, the BlackBerry Q5, a Qwerty handset that doesn't quite hit all the highs of the Q10. BlackBerry's rebirth in 2013 hasn't got off to...

Most affordable route to BB10, keyboard action is nice, makes a great messenger device

Feels cheap, battery not great, performance is rather lacklustre

BlackBerry's rebirth in 2013 hasn't got off to the strongest start. The Z10 feels like the poor cousin to the flagship devices of rival platforms. The Q10 is great as the Qwerty messenger, but again, the user experience just doesn't feel as exciting as...

BlackBerry has just announced the Q5, a mid-range Qwerty keyboard handset designed for emerging markets and those after something cheaper than the Q10

BlackBerry Q5 review

 

BlackBerry 10 gets slightly more affordable, but does that make any better?

4G enabled ; Fast web browsing ; MicroSD slot ; Decent BlackBerry Hub

Chunky plastic case ; Non-removable battery ; Average keyboard ; Awkward screen size

The BlackBerry Q5 is difficult to love. Sure it's got all the core smartphone features, but it doesn't really excel at anything, apart from perhaps web browsing, but even that's hampered somewhat by the pokey 3.1-inch display. It's a Q10 for people who...

BlackBerry Q5 review

 

It has that iconic BlackBerry smartphone look with a square screen situated above the buttoned keyboard. One of the only clues that tells us it's a modern BlackBerry phone running BlackBerry 10 OS is the absence of any trackpad or thumbstick.

It's a mixed bag when it comes to the BlackBerry Q5. It's cheaper than both the BlackBerry Q10 and Z10 and a lot of its hardware specs are better than we expected. However, build quality isn't inspiring and while BlackBerry 10 is smooth with good...

BlackBerry Q5 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The BlackBerry Q5 is an affordable smartphone with a physical Qwerty keyboard. It runs on BlackBerry's latest operating system and is aimed squarely at the youth market. But up against rival operating systems - such as Apple and Android, which both...

Review: BlackBerry Q5

 

While BlackBerry's bread and butter has long been the enterprise and government market, there was a time when it catered to a large user base of consumers.
