Internet browsing speed comparison between BlackBerry Q5 and HTC One
My blogger buddies did a comparison between BlackBerry Q5 and HTC One on their internet browsing speed and found out that BB Q5 has way faster browsing speed than any the other smartphone. Well, as you can see the BB Q5 on the left has almost load finish a website while HTC One still has things to finish.

Will this convince you to upgrade/buy BlackBerry Q5 to be your new awesome gadget? 

Who should buy the new BlackBerry Q5?

Well, to be honest, I used to be a BB Bold user and it was really helpful in getting my work done especially their fast email system and the amazing QWERTY keypads. I was comfortable with it until Instagram, the photo apps brought me to an Android phone and I never go back since then. If you are a person into photography and like to share them on your social network, BlackBerry Q5 is not for you then. BlackBerry Q5 has a different camera focusing system and trust me you gotta learn how to use the user interface when you get it =) It is basically the same thing, just like when Apple user who trying out Android phone find it hard to operate their function and features. Ever since the existance of Whatsapp and other chat/video app, I believe BBM has slowly losing its magic and attractiveness.

Who should get the new BlackBerry Q5? A person who is looking for a simple working phone that includes basic social media tools (it has Facebook, Twitter but no Instagram yet) and  like to type swiftly with the QWERTY keypads should get this phone as your working phone. BlackBerry Q5 is more affordable too (RM1,299) if compared to other premium smartphones. Another thing that's pro for BlackBerry phone is their fast speed web-browser. We've compared the browsing speed ebtween BB Q5 and HTC One and the browsing speed for BB Q5 is amazingly fast!
