  • Excerpt: The HTC Desire Z is one of two follow ups to the phenomenally successful HTC Desire. The Desire Z packs the same size screen (3.7-inches) and the same resolution camera (5-megapixels) but comes with a nifty slide-out Qwerty keypad and improved HTC Sense features.

HTC Desire Z

THE INQUIRER
26 January 2011
  • Conclusion: Despite the slightly inferior specifications and some minor quibbles, the Desire Z just about pips the Motorola Milestone 2 in terms of usability. The Android 2.2 operating system is still one of the best around and, coupled with the HTC Sense user interface, makes the Desire Z one of the better...
  • Pros: Great touch screen, nice design, gets the best out of Android 2.2, decent input methods.
  • Cons: Disappointing onboard storage, noticeable lag when navigating., Battery life.

  • Summary: Weighing in at 180g, the HTC Desire Z is a little on the heavy side, but the 3.7-inch S-LCD display is brighter than Super AMOLED screens The straightforward setup process and the customisable home screens make this rather geeky device incredibly easy to get to grips with Despite a 1GHz processor...
  • Pros: Excellent web, great keyboard, intuitive features and interface, ability to act as Wi-Fi hotspot, improved camera
  • Cons: Occasional lags in touch-screen, no native task manager app

HTC Desire Z Android smartphone

Good Gear Guide.au
16 December 2010
  • Summary: The HTC Desire Z is an excellent smartphone, mainly due to a combination of Google's excellent Android platform and HTC's Sense UI. However, its biggest selling point -- the "pop-out" physical QWERTY keyboard -- has a poorly designed hinge mechanism that detracts from the handset's overall appeal.
  • Pros: Excellent touchscreen, great software, updated HTC Sense and HTCSense.com features, HD video recording
  • Cons: Poor hinge design, keyboard is not exceptional, battery life is not great

  • Conclusion: The HTC Desire Z should be taken from two angles. The first is that it offers a touchscreen smartphone experience that many will love, with HTC Sense offering up its easy take on Android and packing in plenty of connected features for you to enjoy.
  • Pros: Great screen, plenty of functions, Android 2.2, looks great, in-video focusing
  • Cons: Keyboard feels too wide to comfortably use, hinge feels a little too easy to close
