Product Information

BQ is a new name in the smart mobile industry. Having started their business in mainland Europe, they have recently begun expanding, offering well-designed smartphones with high level customer care (including a 5 year warranty!) all at affordable prices.

The Aquaris X5 has been developed as a disruptive entry to the mid range market. It offers a slimline metal design and feature-set more common on expensive top-end phones, with a well-picked set of hardware specifications that keep the cost as low as possible.
