    | engadget

    This is probably the most important smartphone that BlackBerry will launch in 2013. You see, the Z10 and Q10 were designed for diehards, gadget lovers and those who desired a like-for-like replacement for their aging Bolds. Unfortunately for CEO Thorsten Heins, those people were never the total sum of RIM`s (now BlackBerry`s) customer base. After all, it was the budget-conscious crowd that embraced BBM to the point where London`s 2011 civil unres...

  • BlackBerry 10 gets slightly more affordable, but does that make any better?

    BlackBerry 10 gets ever so slightly more affordable with the introduction of the BlackBerry Q5 to the Canadian firm`s smartphone lineup. But don`t go thinking this is a bargain basement offering, because it carries a mid to high tier price tag. Unveiled at BlackBerry`s annual Live conference in Orlando in May 2013, the BlackBerry Q5 was hotly rumoured under the moniker BlackBerry R10, and while the name was a bit of a surprise at launch, pretty m...

    Pros: 4G enabled, Fast web browsing, MicroSD slot, Decent BlackBerry Hub,

    Cons: Chunky plastic case, Non-removable battery, Average keyboard, Awkward screen size,

    Verdict: The BlackBerry Q5 is difficult to love. Sure it`s got all the core smartphone features, but it doesn`t really excel at anything, apart from perhaps web browsing, but even that`s hampered somewhat by the pokey 3.1-inch display. It`s a Q10 for people w...

    Overall: 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 16th

    Interestingly, 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.

    And 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.

    I contacted Flipkart and I was disappointed by their bad response.

    I have decided not to use Flipkart anymore. I will let others also know about their commentable irresponsibility.
