HTC Desire Z – Raison d'etre Lost

Tech2
4 August 2011
  • Excerpt: There aren’t many Android smartphones with QWERTY keyboards, so when HTC announced the release of the Desire Z in India, it was received with much appreciation. There’s a bit of history involved, too. The first Android handset – the HTC G1 – had a QWERTY keypad as well, and this is the first Android smartphone with one that HTC have released, since then.

HTC Desire Z Review

thinkdigit.com
6 April 2011
  • Summary: At a price of Rs. 25,590, the Desire Z is a feature rich phone, and a good performer to boot. It's not perfect though - its QWERTY, which is one of its selling points - not to mention a rarity in Android devices is not the most usable, and we'd have preferred a bigger display. However, these nits aside, it's a good all-round device.
  • Pros: Feature rich, well built, Reasonable battery life, Nice display, good all round performer
  • Cons: 3.7-inches means the on-screen keypad is a little cramped, The hardware QWERTY is mediocre with rubbery feedback and hard keys, and the mechanism seems flimsy, The phone is a bit heavy

HTC Desire Z Review: In Depth

Recombu

  • Conclusion: The Desire Z is another great Android phone from HTC. It’s got a beautiful design, the Qwerty keypad works well and the powerful 5-megapixel camera comes with a decent range of settings. First-time smartphone users will find the extras available from HTCSense.com useful but it might put off experienced Android users. Battery life isn’t great but so long as you charge your phone daily this won’t be a problem.

  • Summary: The HTC Desire Z adds a high-quality, comfortable keyboard to an attractive touchscreen phone that's rammed with features. The keyboard makes the phone significantly bulkier than it would otherwise be, but those who are terrified of touchscreen typing should check it out.
  • Cons: Heavy; some keyboard components could break in time.

  • 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 slider devices on the market.
  • 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.

  • Conclusion: Just like the camera, music and video players are also among the most vital multimedia features of a mobile phone. There are several mobile phone users who spend a lot of time by listening to music or watching videos on their mobile phones. The users of HTC Desire Z can enjoy excellent quality of music by turning on the music player that can play MP3/ WAV/ AAC+ files; enjoy watching videos by streaming the MP4/ H.264 player.
  • Pros: 3.7 inches S-LCD capacitive touchscreen, Full QWERTY keyboard, Up to 32 GB Memory, 5 MP Camera
  • Cons: In comparison to Desire HD, the display is smaller and the camera quality is poor

HTC Desire Z review

Pocket Lint
3 November 2010
  • Excerpt: There aren’t that many Android devices that offer a physical QWERTY keyboard. The HTC Desire Z squares up against the Motorola Milestone 2 nicely, leaving other devices to mainly scrap it out for the mid-range dollars. Even with the Desire Z taking a position towards the top of the scale, it would be easy to knock it after a glance at the spec sheet.
  • 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
