If I may add to PLEASE HELP, try to consider the area of comfort and ease and your inclination. Remember that the choice is yours. Common mistakes (like I do when I purchased a mobile phone that hurt my pocket years ago) are getting a phone because its the "hottest" item and the prestige of having that unit. don't let it rule your choice and mess-up weeks later. Get a phone that fit your needs as an entertainment enthusiast or a young professional with business inclination. Mark my words. You won't regret it.

Thanks buddy!

> In reply to PLEASE HELP @ 2014-11-16 16:11 from 3IU1 - click to readHey, What Recca said is correct understand your need first.

Above all you need first ask yourself what you want to do with the phone use it for taking pics from time 2 time enjoy some games and watch movies on a large screen.

Please understand that Blackberry devices are know among business users and those who love the physical qwerty keypad, as typing on a screen can get cumbersome when typing long emails. On the contrary, having been a window mobile user, myself for a good 6years I know for sure all the WM8 devices have a beautiful and very accurate typing experience when compared to android devices.

If your between the age group of 18 to 24 you'd find large screen device more attractive when compared to qwerty devices because you tend to play games, watch movies and click snap, and download lot of fancy applications to try on that large screen. But if you feel you download lot of apps play lot of games and plan to read a lot of stuff on the web I recommend you buy the Nokia 735.

Why: Blackberry Devices are not know for their marketplace, due lack of fancy applications which android or WM market has to offer. Second since the screen size of the BB Q5 is 720x720 square screen not all android application run well on the Q5.

Good luck.

> In reply to PLEASE HELP @ 2014-11-16 16:11 from 3IU1 - click to readMy friendly advise is to weigh-in everything. Try to ask yourself this questions and I guarantee you will have your answer of your choice.

1. Which of these two phones will give my satisfaction as a mobile user?

2. Am I comfortable with a physical QWERTY pad or a touchscreen keys?

3. Which of these phones has a higher positive feedbacks in terms of performance based on credible source?

4. In surfing the net, does screen size matters to you? Definitely you prefer the wider screen.

5. Am I comfortable with the traditional screen swipe gesture or I love to explore new gesture / swiping command?

6. Are the phones both reasonable for their price and specifications? Which phone answers my true qualifications for a new mobile phone?

7. Lastly, do I have previous experience whether good or bad from the same manufacturer of my preferred unit? What are those experience.

After answering all of these, I am very sure you will come up to your choice.

Good luck with the phone and have a good day!

> In reply to Sushi Majesty @ 2014-11-13 15:32 from 7tUK - click to readGreat!

Yes. Surfing the net video playbacks is a common cause of heat up especially in a multi-tasking event. My friendly advise is to close multiple screen for phone care and energy saving.Let's remember our phone is not made of ultrastrength material but rather semiconductor materials and some of them are too fragile.

Can't wait to see the update.

> In reply to recca @ 2014-11-12 20:16 from nTS9 - click to readYou'll be surprised with the endurance, apparently I get much better battery life with the 10.1.3 update than the earlier update, with one charge the battery lasts about 20hrs on minimum use and 15hrs with very heavy usage. which is pretty cool.

Yes the phone back panel does heat up that only when you surfing the net or when you use the video camera for recording.
