Both are being talked about in tech circles across the world. BlackBerry Q5 vs Sony Xperia SP specs comparison makes interesting reading

The BlackBerry Q5 is the company’s first entry into the affordable mobile market with its brand new BlackBerry 10. The device that has just begun to roll over to global stores is the affordable edition of BlackBerry Q10, a higher-end business-friendly model of the new wave of BB 10 phones. It is a QWERTY keypad-based handset in the conventional BlackBerry style.

Basically being a midrange smartphone, the BlackBerry Q5 has too many brilliant competitors in the world mobile market. Here we take one of nice mid-market phones the Xperia SP from Sony for a neat comparison with the BlackBerry Q5. The SP is a typical Android midranger with all essential features required for such a device, and here is our comparison.

BlackBerry Q5: All You Need to Know
The BlackBerry Q5 is a compact handset with a range of quality features and specs. It is now one of the nicest QWERTY-keypad based phones with the potential to get an overwhelming response from both enterprise and other users alike. The device has everything strongly put together.

When it comes to its display, like its premium model, the Q5 is made with a 3.1-inch touchscreen that offers a resolution of 720 x 720 pixels at 328-ppi. BlackBerry, formerly known as RIM, has used IPS LCD technology on this device apart from its top-notch model’s AMOLED unit, and so it is not much stronger and perfect in contrast of visuals.

Similarly, the BlackBerry Q5 is built around quality and powerful innards. It is powered by a dual core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU that is backed by 2GB of RAM. The operating system – the brand new BlackBerry 10 – is also doing great thanks to its Flow interface and other features.

The new interface of BlackBerry realizes a smart user experience. You will be able to access several important options like messaging, calendar, notifications, and social networking updates in BlackBerry Hub, which is easily accessible anywhere from its interface with a single swipe.

Further, the BlackBerry Q5 has 8GB of internal storage. It may look much meager for many users, who have to deal with much more data for their business or personal use. But for this, you have the option of a microSD slot to expand memory up to 32GB. And the connectivity options of the device include 4G, 3G, NFC, Wi-Fi, GPS and much more. Last but not least, the gadget draws energy from a 2,180mAh battery.

Sony Xperia SP; All you Need to Know
The Sony Xperia SP has an amazing physical form. It is made of a similar angular form of the company’s premium Xperia models with silver trim and matte finish plastic body. Meanwhile, different from the Xperia Z, the SP has a rounded rear panel that is comfortable to take it in hand.

This Sony handset comes with a 4.6-inch touchscreen with a descent pixel resolution of 1280 x 720 at 319-ppi. Thanks to its BRAVIA Engine 2, the device ensures rich colors and better brightness. Unfortunately, it misses out the latest variant of the Android OS. You have only Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box in the Xperia SP.

The machine is running on a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU that is clocked at 1.7GHz. The processor is backed by 1GB of RAM and an Adreno 320 graphical processor. It matches with the BlackBerry Q5 in internal storage with the same 8GB onboard space and 32GB microSD slot.

By the way, connectivity options of the handset include 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth, GPS and microUSB port. It also highlights MHL TV-out as another outstanding feature. The battery onboard the Xperia SP is a sizeable 2,370mAh unit that can provide long battery life for the device.
