The Blackberry Q5 is the latest smartphone to hit the market and bears a striking resemblance to the Blackberry Curve. The Z10 and Q5 are both very different phones, though they have the same BB10 operating system. How do these phones stack up against each other? We put them head to head in e-Reading, audio, video, and some key app store differences.
The Q5 has a 2.1 inch screen that is basically a square, while the Z10 has a 3.1 touchscreen. The key difference is that the Q5 has a full QWERTY Keyboard, which may appeal to people on a budget and who love to type. These two phones will appeal to business customers in a different ways. The Q5 costs less than half of the Z10 and Q5, which may do well in emerging markets. The Z10 is more of a multimedia device, as videos, apps, and everything else performs very well.
