Your humble narrator doesn't review too many gadgets, so it's always a treat when one hits the How Would You Change timetable. In my mind, the BlackBerry Q5 was the company's most important new device simply because it would show if BlackBerry could recapture its low-end dominance. After all, the Q10 and Z10 were aimed at business types with broken Bolds, the Q5 was for teenagers and budget-conscious users in Asia. Did it succeed? Not really. Low-end specs with a mid-tier price would have been bad enough, but the hobbled keyboard did nothing to tempt back people who had since learned to type with fingers on glass. Oh, but the battery life was great. Still, if you disagree, why not leap into our forum and tell me how much you love this phone?
