BlackBerry Q5

The wallet-friendly BlackBerry Q5 is going to be a huge hit with BlackBerry 10 fans on a budget. The BlackBerry smartphone comes with the signature physical QWERTY keyboard and has evolved to include touch screen capabilities on its 3.1-inch display. Though it lacks the premium feel exuded by the BlackBerry Q10, its plastic chassis gives the Q5 a mere weight of 120g. Plus, the affordable smartphone supports the insanely speedy 4G networks here.
