As one of the few great brands that can merge fun and functionality into a complete package, BlackBerry forges sophisticated products that challenge the established norm. Unsurprisingly, this amazing brand garners immediate attention from the public that appreciate its products. Proudly following the footsteps of its predecessors, the BlackBerry Q5 hits the market with a blast as it becomes one of the highly-sought BlackBerry smartphone models.

Classic Design for Comfort

Despite boasting the classic BlackBerry design that everyone loves, the BlackBerry Q5 contains its own unique offerings which prove to be impressive. As mentioned earlier, this class BlackBerry smartphone features touchscreen with its iconic physical keyboard at the bottom. This timeless BlackBerry design continues to garner attention even from those that have been used to its basic design. It is this simplicity that makes BlackBerry Q5 to be more attractive to its users.

BlackBerry Q5 Singapore - Redefining the Meaning of Ergonomics

Despite its fairly simple design, this BlackBerry Q5 takes the meaning of ergonomics to a totally new level. As it proves to be slicker with its sleek and slim body, the BlackBerry Q5 just feels right in your hand when holding and handling it. Moreover, its edges are rather comfortable as they are deliberately designed to be less sharp.

Incredible Display Screen that Inspires

Its 3.1 inch IPS display screen (720 x 720 resolution) offers such tantalizing viewing experience. Not just that, its display screen packs such high pixel density that boasts sharper display quality. In other words, you will enjoy whatever you can see and do on its screen.

BlackBerry Q5 Singapore - Organizing & Managing Your Content Effectively

Featuring the one and only BlackBerry 10 OS, this incredible OS proves to be an awesome helper that merges everything that you need in a simple yet sophisticated manner. The BlackBerry 10 OS has been said to be "simple to master, elegantly designed and surprisingly complete" by critics and reviewers alike. In other words, such amazing OS emphasizes user experience so that you can enjoy your content to the fullest. Even for those first time users that are new to BlackBerry smartphones, the BlackBerry 10 OS proves to be very simple to learn and use as it takes intuitive-based approach as its centerpiece.

Committed in Energizing Your Lifestyle

While housing only 2180mAh battery, it is incredible that BlackBerry Q5 is able to provide long-lasting performance. Thanks to its highly efficient software and OS, this BlackBerry smartphone promotes lower consumption of power while maintaining its efficiency at the same time. Therefore, the BlackBerry Q5 smartphone has been crafted clearly to energize your lifestyle with its performance.
