Price comparison

Cheap alternatives for BlackBerry Q5

Design

1.weight

120g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.thickness

10.8mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.height

120mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.width

66mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.volume

85.54cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
6.has a physical QWERTY keyboard
BlackBerry Q5
Text messaging is much faster due to a hardware keyboard.

Display

1.pixel density

329ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
2.resolution

720 x 720px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
3.screen size

3.1"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
BlackBerry Q5
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
5.has a touch screen
BlackBerry Q5
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.CPU speed

2 x 1.2GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.RAM

2GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
3.has an external memory slot
BlackBerry Q5
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
4.internal storage

8GB

The internal storage, also called read-only memory (ROM), refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.

Cameras

1.megapixels (main camera)

5MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
2.megapixels (front camera)

2MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
3.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 30fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
4.wide aperture (main camera)

f/2.4

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
5.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
BlackBerry Q5
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
6.has a built-in HDR mode
BlackBerry Q5
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).

Audio

1.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
BlackBerry Q5
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
2.Has a radio
BlackBerry Q5
A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.
3.number of microphones

1

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

Battery

1.battery power

2180mAh

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
2.has a removable battery
BlackBerry Q5
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
3.has a battery level indicator
BlackBerry Q5
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
4.has a rechargeable battery
BlackBerry Q5

Features

1.has NFC
BlackBerry Q5 (BlackBerry 10)
NFC (near-field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions.
2.is DLNA-certified
BlackBerry Q5
All DLNA-certified products are compatible with one another. When different devices are connected to the same network, data can be transferred easily between them.
3.Bluetooth version

4

Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
4.has a gyroscope
BlackBerry Q5
A gyroscope is a sensor that tracks the orientation of a device, more specifically by measuring the angular rotational velocity. Initially, they were built using a spinning rotor to detect changes in orientation, like twisting or rotation.
5.has GPS
BlackBerry Q5
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.
6.has a compass
BlackBerry Q5
A compass is useful for gaming, maps, and navigation software.
