Good: I'm yet to find anything good about it
Bad: Abysmally slow, freezes up at regular intervals
Comment: Phone is used for business use. The phone is abysmally slow. Even navigating menus can apparently confuse the device. The handset freezes for five minutes at a time when adding recipients to group text messages. Got a like for like swap through EE and exactly the same poor performance levels and issues reared their head.
Been told EE will not consider swapping for an alternate handset until it has been exchanged like for like 3 times. Would not recommend to anyone. Quite possibly the worst handset I've ever used.
Comment: The operating system is more then competition to android and apple. Why do you think iOS7 update copied blackberries platform? I have the z10 and i love it, even more then my previous Razr HD. Blackberry has done a fine job with this one. I am thinking purchasing this phone for my mom since she likes physical keyboards.This looks like a great phone.

Good: good screen, fast enough, camera ok,big enough screen, good phone
Bad: bit "bricky"
Comment: i feel that the q5 is fine for what it is, a blackberry that gives my emails and keeps me in touch without the attention almost all other phones get from thieves and it for me is just as good as my last bb torch smaller screen ok but still good value for money on my contract - £15 month free phone,
Good: Comparing has an excellent OS and hardware. People has to try it!
Bad: At the moment, I don't find anything bad.
Comment: It's not a fashion cellphone at this moment and the price of blackberry in not accessible for all the possible users.
The new Blackberry OS10 is the best software in the market right now, but the people continue comparing theirs androids with the old blackberries os. Something hard to communicate with the high price.
I do not regret my upgrade!
Good: Sharp Screen
Comment: Great Product
Bad: over priced
Comment: like the q10 it's way over priced..
BB are killing themselves..

Bad: pressing of the screen for enter
Comment: Try to make enter key in btween key board so you'nt be able to press screen always for enter
Comment: ditto to the comment by jayce35.
Comment: what load of rubbish for the if it was £99 it might be worth it i cant see blackberry being around next year if they carry on with this
