QWERTY keypads are vanishing from smartphone market these days, and Blackberry Q5 is planning to cash in on this opportunity along with the touch-swype based BB10 UI that looks sleek on this all new gadget.
As far as the performance is concerned, we expect Q5 to run impressively faster thanks to its 1.2 Ghz dual-core processor , 2GB RAM & 8 GB of internal memory. For a phone priced under Rs.25000, 2GB RAM is still rare on Android & Windows Phone devices.
The display of Blackberry Q5 is 3.1 inch 720×720 pixel, that has a pixel density of 328ppi, which will give you an experience of premium quality.
There is 2 Megapixels of front facing camera for video calling and online calls that can record at 720p, where has 8 Megapixels ( 3264 x 2448 pixels, with autofocus, LED flash) of Rear camera will be bit of a downer for most of the photo geeks. Just to compare Samsung Galaxy Grand have 8MP camera which priced almost Rs.7000 less than Blackberry Q5.
This device pretty much is an affordable rip-off of their high-end phone Blackberry Q10, which offers 1,5GHz processor, 16GB internal memory & 8MP rear camera. But Q5 has far inferior quality of material used compared to Q10, because it is made of plastic. It will be available in White, Black & Red options, which is great for someone looking for an colorful BB in budget.
