Ok so I have been using my HTC Desire Z for about a month now and I have done a number of comparisons agains other smartphones and all I have to say is this is how smartphones should be.

Funcionality: This phone has some very cool features, the keyboard is brilliant, it has a nice 5mp camera with a flash which can also seperatly be used as a torch - very handy. The camera will also record 720p HD video and the frame rate is very impressive. It has a good quality lense too so the still pics are sharp, crisp and very detailed.

Ease of use: Its very easy to use, the built in keyboard makes it even easier. As a matter of fact, i am typing this review up on my Desire Z as we speak! Web pages are easier to browse and access than any other device ive used, except for my laptop/pc. With the use of Flash 10.1 you can now view almost any web page you want and view all its content from YouTube to BBC iPlayer which is great!

Styling: Personally, I think this phone has the looks. Its no thicker than an iPhone 4, no bigger either and the titanuim shell which surrounds its screen and covers the battery makes it look the part. Aside from the dedicated camera button, the volume buttons on the other side and the 'track pad' this phone has no other visible buttons, until you open up the keyboard. This gives it the look of something very serious and hi-tech. I will say however that this phone is a little weighty, its definitely something you can feel in your pocket. Some people may not like this, I do however. I like being able to feel my phone in my poket, I get worried if i can't!

Ok so to sum this phone up - it looks beautiful, has a good battery life and will do everything an iPhone will do, and more. Lots more.

Verified Purchase
I chose this phone to replace my old G1 Google Phone - I haven't used any other smartphones though to compare. I have had mine for 24 hours.

For me the HTC Desire Z is like the culmination in one product of everything that a smartphone should be. If it has drawbacks or oddities, I can't see them. Some of the online reviews say the hinge of the phone is flimsy, it does look flimsy but it feels solid enough and my guess is that the fact it's made of aluminium means the moving parts can be smaller and narrower.

The battery life is pretty decent - after a day at work the G1 used to run down completely even on standby but this is still on 90% or so.

They have put loads of thought into how it connects to everything else, if you charge it from a computer's USB port it can connect itself to the internet through the computer. It finds nearby wireless access points and uses them in preference to the mobile data tariff. It has automatically cross-linked all my contacts between my Gmail account and work email. The camera is good, although I am no expert and other phones may have better. The keyboard is a bit smaller than the one on the G1 but it is perfectly good, and the touchscreen made me realise that actually you can type on them. Call quality is good.

There are loads of features and apps I haven't used at all yet such as navigation / maps but this phone does everything I need it for brilliantly and I would recommend it to anyone else who like me is seeking a PAYG Android smartphone with a qwerty keyboard, or something to replace a G1.

Ever since I first touched the Desire Z, I found it beautiful. The snapping keyboard, the touch buttons, the super duper responsive screen, the lot.
At first, it started as a bit of a toy; scrolling through the Android market to find all the shiny new apps to use, most of which ended up being used once before sitting humbly in my apps list.
The Messaging system is useful, the email system is next to none, and the internet browser's pretty efficient.
The keyboard is really useful. Initially, it was cumbersome and annoying, but as I got used to it, I found it excellent and easy to use. I can now type without looking at the phone, which is useful for situations such as texting under the desk in school.
The optical trackpad, soft keys and keyboard mean that you can use virtually all of the applications on the phone without having to touch the screen once, which is great when I'm out and about and getting my hands dirty.
There are, however, a few issues with the phone. When sending a text, if you're typing with the keyboard, the message reel will occasionally scroll up for no apparent reason, cutting off your typing. Another complaint is the HTC Sense homescreen, which is REALLY slow, but since another, much faster homescreen is available, this isn't too much of a worry.
On the hardware side, the cushion pads which stop the screen whacking off the body of the phone every time you close the keyboard have stained my beautiful phone yellow!
Other than that, this phone is EXCELLENT! Much better than the iPod I used to use and my friends' iPhones which I have stolen on occasion. Brilliant design, brilliant keyboard, brilliant.

This is my first ever smartphone and frankly I LOVE it!!
It's got good memory the phone has just under 2GB and the handset comes with an 8GB SD card already inserted in it, which you can change if you want to expand the memory, unlike the iPhone.
There are many great features but there are specific ones that I love.
I have a netbook but it can be fiddly getting it out on the tube (I'm a Londoner) or generally anywhere, but on the HTC Desire Z I have the fantastic ability of editing my word documents while heading to uni, great for the last minute adjustments to assignments. It also supports excel so as the treasury for a society I can easily update my spreadsheet for payments, which is excellent!! It also supports PDF files so I can read my extensive digital library.
There's easy access to internet, you can decide how it uses the internet which is great if you have a limited internet usage plan. I can easily update my status online and it's great fun.
The apps are great but I only keep a few to entertain little kids and my teenage cousins.
The features are great, it's fun, flexible and frankly it epitomizes all that is great with the digital world.
I do wish it came with a cover though as the screen does get a wee bit messy, especially when others want to have a go and I just cant say no!
I also love the fact that not many people have it, everyone has the iPhone4 or BlackBerry's and it's just not original anymore but with HTC it's great and let's you be an individual.
The Obvious Awesome Feature has to be the fact that it is touch screen and it has a qwerty key board, very useful!!!
