Colour Name: Black
The Blackberry Q5 does almost everything its big brother Q10 can do for less than half the price (depending where you buy - at time of writing this phone can be purchased considerably cheaper elsewhere).

Most of he stand-out features of the Q10 are retained, as is the BlackBerry 10 operating system. The main differences are: a smaller amount of on-board storage (a still adequate 8GB, as opposed to 16GB), no HDMI connectivity and a lower resolution (5MP) camera. This phone is nevertheless packed with functions and does not have that second-rate feel that phones better suited to SIM-only or pay-as-you-go contracts can often have. It's particularly good that the Q5 retains the excellent photo editing software of its pricier counterpart.

Inevitably there are some styling compromises - as you would expect with a cheaper version e.g. the Q5 is lighter in weight. Visually though, it's almost as though BlackBerry's designers have half-heartedly gone out of their way not to make this look like a Q10 in order to justify that model's higher price. In fact, but for the BlackBerry logo, it could almost look like a BB copy. Therefore, if there is a weak point of this phone, then I would have to say that it's not as aesthetically pleasing as it could be, even taking account of its budget price. I would stress however that the design in terms of functionality of the phone is NOT at all compromised - they keyboard works well and the screen is, dare I say it (I am a Q10 owner, my wife has the Q5), possibly easier to read than the Q10's.

In terms of value for money I really don't think you can beat the BlackBerry Q5 at the moment - but as I say, shop around (for example O2 do this phone in their shops for £130 - as opposed to £215 on Amazon as I type this).

Using the Q5's keyboard has to be the highlight of the phone whilst the Q5 is missing the send, end, home and menu keys, you'll have to interact with the touch screen much more than you would with the above row of physical keys, that's fine BlackBerry 10 is a very simple and intuitive OS so there's no problem.

The phone itself is light, thinish and the screen is ok, not Q10 amazing but it dose offer very good viewing angles. The phone is all plastic but we'll made and no creaks, the OS runs along nicely and is very fluid, Camera ok not great but in good light it gets the job done.

Going back to the keyboard it's the best part of the phone, a little more effort to press the keys than the Q10 but personally I feel easier to use because the keys are spaced out on the Q5 unlike the Q10. The keys look identical to the BlackBerry 9720 keyboard but the Q5 is simply better, even I can type reasonably fast and the spell check is awesome.

All in all if you require a physical keyboard and use your phone for calls, text, emails, little surfing on the Internet this is for you. If your a heavy email writer this phones for you. I think the Q5 is nearly the best BlackBerry to date for the price. Other than the screen it's quite dull and hard to make out in bright sunlight. That said its a working phone not flash looking and it is uninspiring in black at least, but feels and works well in the hand, call qulity is very clear without having to turn the volume up loud as regards to the app selection fill your boots there's tons out there. Video playback maybe the occasional YouTube video but your not likely to be the type of person to want to watch a full movie on the 3.1" screen if your getting a Blackberry. Battery life easly a full day one let down non removable back and battery. Another point worth mentioning which is standard to all BB's is the built in encryption and security Blackberry phones are known for.

My blackberry curve was getting very slow as couldn't cope with all apps running on it (Facebook, LInkedin, What's App) and as upgrading the memory card did not fix the issue, I opted for the Blackberry Q5. I'm not dissapointed, the browsing and user experience is amazing. After few days you get used to the bigger size and of having a touch screen. Strongly recommend it, very good value for money. Just get a cover as to not damage the screen if you drop the phone.

Colour Name: Black
I love it. I love it's gesture based UI. It just seems so intuitive compared to android (I've had a Motorola Milestone, Nexus S, Orange San Diego, HTC One SV, Samsung Galaxy S3).

In android, when I'm in an application, so often I would press the 'back' key and instead of going back to the previous screen it would instead just exit the whole thing because it's an inconsistent command and is different in different apps, so I'm regularly closing apps without meaning to. Also, when I do exit an app by pressing 'back', does it mean the app is actually closed? or is it still running in the background? Unless I have experience of the app by checking a task manager I don't often know.

In Blackberry OS 10 with one swipe the app is minimized on the "home" screen; this means it is still running in the background and any data in that app is saved and hasn't disappeared. Say for example I am entering data on a website, maybe registering on a forum; if I leave the browser half way through by minimising it to go and play a game or make a phone call, I know that all the information I've entered will still be there when I comeback, as long I haven't closed the minimised browser.

Apps don't close completely unless the user closes them (whereas android will close apps automatically). It might sound laborious to close every app yourself but I personally prefer it. In the BB 10 OS as soon as I leave an app it's minimised right in front of me on the home screen; clicking the 'x' on the corner closes it. BB 10 therefore feels much more transparent than android but not quite as laborious as having to enter a dedicated task manager interface like on the IPhone; On the BlackBerry I tend to close apps as I go along.
