The BlackBerry Q5 may be the smaller sibling of the Q10, but it’s still a pretty decent handset, one that is in some ways a better option than the larger model, which we discussed in a BlackBerry Q10 vs. Q5 review. However, today we thought we would take a closer look at the smaller physical QWERTY device, just to see what all the fuss is about, and to give you a greater understanding of the phone itself.
First up there’s the BlackBerry Q5 review in video from above, which as some of you will know is now the third BlackBerry 10 smartphone released so far. However, the Q5 is different from the Z10 and Q10, as this is more affordable. The overall look of the Q5 is very typical of a BlackBerry smartphone, and seems to be a perfect size if you want a phone to fit easily in one hand, and be able to use it with that one hand as well. Not everyone is into big touchscreen phones, and if you fall into that category, then we’d advise you to watch all of the BlackBerry Q5 video review above.
The main BlackBerry Q5 specs are not going to set any records, but they are good enough to do the job, which include a 3.1-inch Super Amoled touchscreen, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage.
BlackBerry Q5 video samples — As this handset lacks some of the features that the Q10 comes with, and is a far less powerful device than the Z10, you may want to know how well the video performs, and so we have included two video samples below. The first is an indoor sample, whereas the second is an outdoor one, with the quality of the indoor footage being rather poor, but the outside being a little better, but nothing too special.
It’s always exciting when you get yourself a new handset, and so many of you like to record a video of you taking it out of the box, which is just what one guy did in the final video below, which is a BlackBerry Q5 unboxing video.
We hope that this will give you a far greater insight into the BlackBerry Q5 handset, and with a bit of luck will help you learn if this is the phone for you or not.
