Your attitude towards physical keyboards will determine your response to BlackBerry's Q5.
Qwerty is distinctly a minority interest now — apart from BlackBerry's handsets, devices with such keyboards are few and far between, partly because soft keyboards are so good now (SwiftKey for example has plenty of fans) and because all those keys take up space that most people think would be better used for the screen.
Still, the keyboard itself is well designed and the variously bevelled keys make typing easy and fast, although I didn't especially like the feel of the plastic body in my hand. But if you're convinced of the need for a hard keyboard, then you'll be unwilling to put up with the serious compromise you have to make on screen size.
The touchscreen is bright, crisp and responsive, but so small it means it's unlikely to be a preferred device for regularly consuming media: it's one for absorbing information quickly, and not lingering too long. The look of web pages is adequate, but videos are frustrating small on the square screen.
