    I am honestly saying yesterday I literally dropped my Q5 nearly 3feet height on concrete base! Nothing happens like old Nokia phones! For everyone it's must to know you can use 9apps and TubeMate, few android apps APK work on BB10 OS, there is no OTG support but screen mirroring (miracast) option is here! You need to take adopter for flat pin charger and provided headset quality also good.good camera with LED flash.
