HTC Desire Z review: HTC's Desire Z is an excellent smartphone but its biggest selling point -- the physical QWERTY keyboard -- has a poorly designed hinge mechanism

Good Gear Guide.au
21 June 2011
  • 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

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.
