    I have both q5 and q10. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and function of the q5 but it's really not a fair comparison... the q10 is clearly superior. Typing on the q10 is faster and more comfortable, photos are superior, boot time is faster and being able to swap the battery is a wonderful option.

    I'd like to add that while q10 is a head and shoulders winner for me, there are a couple of things that I appreciate about the q5. I love the range in brightness you can get on the lcd screen; I'm often banging away at night in the dark and q5 gets dark enough to be comfortable. Also, the fact that it's thicker and more narrow makes it more comfortable for me to hold. I'd never say that this is a good trade as I'd have to sacrifice my q10 keyboard, but by itself, the narrower device is easier to use with 1 hand.

    Here's the link about the Q5 EOL in case anyone else was interested: http://n4bb.com/blackberry-q5-reache...n-carrier-bell

    It's in no way regarding its status with Blackberry so don't let that deter you if you're truly interested in the Q5.... this EOL is a personal choice for one carrier in one country (Canada) to no longer sell the Q5, presumably to make room for the arrival of the Passport and Classic. Blackberry is still fully and actively supporting the device.

    Q-10 and Otterbox. The minuscule cost difference makes it a no brainer. I wouldn't consider the 5.

    Or wait to check out Classic/Passport.

    Both are great, Q10 is better though. So if you're planning on keeping it for a while or you expect to benefit from the removable battery, get the Q10 as well as the battery charger bundle.

    From valuebasket site. S$379. But I'm disappointed with issues with headphone jack. I can hear but the other side can't hear me at all. If I pull the headphone off the jack while on call it disconnects the call. Had embarrassing moment during three conference calls. I did everything I could looking through the forums but in vain. I'm going to return it and keep quiet for a while until Classic or Passport.

    That's precisely what I've initiated. Trying for replacement. It's an export set. The product is indeed brand new and fantastic otherwise.

    Made in Mexico. Shipped by seller in HK. Overall I'm happy (no lag) but for the headphone issue. Battery life has been bit of a shocker as we'll. I'm allowing few more days for the OS to settle before passing my judgement (assuming I don't return it by then).

    Been using a Q5 for about 5 months now after using a Z10 for the past year...if a higher resolution camera is important for you, then I'd go the Q10 route, otherwise the Q5 is a very solid and reliable day-to-day device and battery clearly gets you through an entire biz day !! Paid $200 bucks for an unlocked Q5 on Amazon.com

    Getting a Q10 thank you everybody for your input. I own a z30 but in the dusty environment I'm usually in I'm very concerned of dust messing up it up like it did for my z10.
    Will get a q10 due.
    Removable battery. Updatable
    Larger screen.
    Camera (job requires lots of pictures for insurance purposes)

    I have 3 x Q10's and am giving one away in the Fire Chest Apps BBM channel.

    The Q10 is definitely a well built product. Can't speak to a comparison with the Q5 as I have never used one.
