    Got my white Q5 yesterday and I'm already in love with it. Excellent build quality on this little beast!

    While everybody's talking about their Passport or Z30, I'm too happy with my new little companion.

    My wife was impressed too, considering a Q5 purchase as well.

    Not enough places to buy a Q5 (here in the US).... and not enough price difference (sometimes the Q10 is cheaper) between a Q5 and a Q10 in the markets where both are available.


    But yeah the new stuff gets all the headlines.... Imagine how the majority of BlackBerry users feel when they come to CrackBerry and everything is about BB10. I imagine the BBOS users sill out number us 4 to 1, yet they get no love either.

    But enjoy your Q5!

    I've own a white Q5 as well (since January) and it has helped me in so many different ways since then. I think people overlook it because it's 'supposedly' the lowest end model of the BB10 phones. It's almost nearly the same as the Q10 except with less storage and a lower clocked processor by a couple of MHz. It needs more publicity IMO

    It truly is a great device. The screen has better ppi than the Z30 which I found funny. If you need a great device on a budget, can't go wrong.

    Black Q5 here. Bought from Amazon for 220 ?. I never was a fan of smart phones but the Q5 completely changed that.

    Only the case is a bit slippery... Everything else is great. I like the keyboard of the 5 more than the Q10.

    yes Q 5 is overlooked and hard to find in some countries, had mine a Red one for a year
    no problems, and for a low end phone no signs of wear in keyboard the battery life
    very good, has a gloss back nearly dropped it but i found the Genuine Blackberry hard shell
    case is a good investment, i still use bbos 9900 as main work phone so am in both camps
    it's all about Passport and Classic now they are chosen one's, so i hope you all enjoy using
    your Q 5 it's an excellent phone and good value.

    I've had my red q5 since June and I'm very very happy! BlackBerry user for 4 years until 2011.. just came from an s4 to my first BlackBerry/os10 experience since then. It reminds me of how much I loved my first curve. So great for messaging and calling. The screen is a little small but I knew that going into it. I love being able to use my phone one handed to reach the screen. It's steller! And the color. Don't get me started! This red is killer and a lot of people I meet get a little jealous and reminisce on their first blackberry (as it was very popular in canada before the iphone was available). So happy I tried BlackBerry again!

    Just got a red Q5 today as my secondary phone (my main sim is in a Q10) and I love it already. I'm seriously considering putting my main sim into the Q5.

    I bought my BB Q5 in July. I love it! Texting is so easy with the qwerty keyboard. It's easy to hold and not cumbersome. No issues so far. I didn't find the operating system difficult to navigate.

    Not even Crackberry shows much love, no Q5 prompt in the heading. WUWT
    My wife and I both love our Q5's
    Best phone for the dollars.

    Silicone case with checkered sided adds no bulk but lots of grip.
