    Yes my dear!
    I have both + I had a Z10 too. I sold the Z10 due to I prefer a keyboard.

    A Q5 is a perfect device (low budget). The screen is better than a Q10.

    My wife has a Q5, me a Q10.
    Go for the Q5. You'll never regret it.

    Thanks for replying. I have a z10 but the battery life is realy very poor, so I am selling it. But I love the bb10 os. So now I am confused between which phone to buy... whether q5 or q10.

    Q10 would have the double typing issue
    You could read both the forums, moreover there are some threads on this forum that compare both the devices.

    Yes, Q5 battery can last a day with low brightness, Wifi, medium usage.

    If you really like qwerty then the trade off of having a smaller screen is ok. But since you've used the z10, I assume you're ok with the BlackBerry 10 virtual keyboard. If the z3 is not too bulky for you then that would be a good choice as you get both great battery life without sacrificing screen real estate.

    There is no doubt about it that the Z10's battery is pretty rubbish compared to a much smaller Q5. Which has around 400mAh more power. I would say.

    If you looking for a full touch Z3 is your man.
    If you looking for a qwerty, Q5 is your guy

    If you looking for premium qwerty - Passport is your master
    If you looking for a premium full touch - z30 is your slave.

    The screen of the BlackBerry Q5 is better than the BlackBerry Q10 and the battery lasts a full day of moderate usage including streaming Internet radio over LTE. At night I switch over to WiFi to listen to streaming talk radio as I fall asleep; on WiFi the broadcast is not paused unlike on LTE after a built-in period of time. No pauses during daylight or when a light is illuminated though so it must be triggered by the ambient light sensor. Watching YouTube videos or reading a PDF is a bit more convenient on my BlackBerry Z10 but it's battery life sucks now.

    Since loading the 10.3.0.1052 leak and letting it settle I am having the best battery experience ever on my Z10. Phone came off charge at 8.30am

    when I saw that the Z10 battery was not enough for me, I bought a spare battery instead of downgrading. Best 20$ investment ever.

    Q5 is better. It's in the same area as the Q10 in terms of battery life, which isn't bad. I'm using my Z10 for the first time since buying my Z30 and I'm reminded immediately of how poor the battery life is. Going back to the Z30 tonight.

    It's an issue when 2 batteries do not take you thru a full day or 12hrs . Meanwhile 1 on the q5 could.

    The battery life of the z10 made me switch to the q5. No regrets here. My q5 lasts me more than 1 day on moderate to heavy use.

    Sent using my awesome Q5
