I had ordered a Blackberry Q5. I received the item in nicely packed on May 05th. But within one week time, six of its physical keys started non-functioning. On May 12th I raised a complaint and my replacement request was approved. And I received the new item on May 16thnnInterestingly, the original item was manufactured in Apr 2014 and the phone had the latest software. The replacement item was manufactured in July 2013 and it had an older version of Blackberry OS. I received notification from phone that there is a latest software version available. But could not download over the air (OTA) since it is almost 700 MB in size. I have been trying the remaining two options to get the latest software since the time I received the phone. One method is to update via Blackberry Link and the last one is from web browser directly. But unfortunately I could not succeed using both the methods. To ensure that its not a problem with the laptop or data card, I repeated it with two laptops and three data cards (BSNL, Tata Photon Plus, Reliance Netconnect+). But there wasn't any difference.nnAnd more over the cell has poor signal strength inside a normal building. My carrier is Idea which has a very good presence in all over Kerala.nnI contacted Flipkart and I was disappointed by their bad response.nnI have decided not to use Flipkart anymore. I will let others also know about their commentable irresponsibility.
For those who hates blackberry......nOnce I was also in ur league.....nSomeday I keep in touch with a BB Curve 9220 & used it for 7 days.....nBefore that I used SG S4...nBelieve me guys I've fallen in love with the OS,with the ergonomics,with the design,with the feelings,with the usability,with the ease of use of a smartfone.nFor those who r claiming u can get 8mp or 13mp camera,big display,big fone like TV,this fone is not for them.nIf u are smart enough & wanna use a smartfone in ur daily busy life,then BB Q5 will make ur life simpler with each & everything.nI sold my SG S4 to buy this & believe me guys its awesome...nFor android & wp fanboys,if u use BB OS for 2-3 days,u will never get back top that crappy OS's.nI am not going to the specs,but showing u some easiness of using a fone bcoz a smartphone is for mainly for smart using & saving ur time in ur busy days_n1.U've to make 3 steps to make a call.n2.U can go to anywhere by typing its name from homescreen(that's the best part I like most)n3.The OS is blazingly fast & 2gb ram is more more than sufficient for it.n4.Simply stunning looks with awesome camera features.n5.The BB Hub.n6.Whats more u don't have to buy plans for BBM.n7.The premium BB keyboard.nReally friends after using Samsung galaxy S4......nI am saying "Its cool to own a Blackberry".....
A very good phone compared all available blackberry phone on the market specially bold 9900 priced around 31000.nPhone features are good for the previous blackberry user with 2gb of ram,(2180 mah battery which is highest among all blackberry phones) including high range Z10 and Q10, 1.2 dual core processor and very well updated user friendly BB 10.1nNo doubt the phone will definately retain the users of blackberry as this is the best deal they can get for less than 25000.nBut the bbm went wrong with the pricing if they targeted to gain new customers of android and IOS which is a big hit in current market..nnBBM fan will definately go for the product, It is much better than bold 9900 and 9790 becausenBold 9900 at rs 31000 Q5 at 24990nKey FeaturesnBlackBerry 7 OS vs 10.1n2.8-inch vs 3.1 Capacitive TouchscreennPrimary camera 5 MP vs 5MP but Q5 hav secondary 2mp Cameran1.2 GHz single core Vs double core ProcessornHD Recording availablen768 vs 2gb ramn2G and 3G vs 4g support in Q5 nWi-Fi Enabled vs Wifi with hotspotnnplus you dont need to have BBM special services in BB10 osnbattery life of Q5 is the best in smartphonenExpandable Storage Capacity of 32 GBnnyou are good enough to decide now..
I have been using Blackberry for quite a while starting with the base model. In between i have changed to Iphone and a lot many handsets apart from Blackberry but finally i landed back to Q 5.Guys if you r looking for a real smart phone pls go for it .... the battery life is excellent and u don't need a BB plan to access internet and its triple faster even you set lot many accounts.nnThe phone is real weightless and gives a bold look. Since its very light and bit smooth , there are chances of slipping off , so be careful when u handle it. Camera is good enough. Overall an excellent phone ...start using it.....u will fall in love with it !!!!!! Thanks a million BB for a finished product !!!!!
*Design like a calculator somewhat similar to htc cha cha,Using keyboard is like in the computer world you are using typewriter.n*Just only 5MP Camera at 25000/-Rs, by spending just only 16000/-Rs you will get 8MP Camera with branded companies like sony & LG.n*At this price tag Dual core processor,you expect Quad core.n*NO FM Radio-blackberry you want to sell phone in india or somewhere else.without fm means your phone has no music feature.Nokia Lumia also doesnt have fm but they have the biggest music store.n*3.1 inch tiny little screen,you dont even think of doing multitasking.Gamers stay away.n100000 apps..that's it...howmany of your apps are free 25%.-30%,blackberry you cannt stand on your feet in front of 800000+ apps.n*bbm was usp of blackberry phones.not anymore.bbm available on ios and andriod. Whatsapp and Viber are also doing great supported all platform and free as well.n*For those people who says about bb security blah blah for them latest news (Indian Government has finally ended its long lasting dispute with the Canadian Smartphone maker BlackBerry, following an agreement which permits the security agencies to monitor email attachments and chat messages send over the company’s popular BBM messenger.)n*At around 25000/-Rs price tag you ve Nexus4,Galaxy S3,HTC OneX,SonyXperia S,Nokia Lumia820 .great phones, trusted brands,100 times better feature than this,and great value for money rather to spend on a phone with no feature.
