the good the bad and the ugly..

  • Excerpt: i made the leap from a nokia e97mini to the htc. After 4 months of use, i hate it. I have problems with signal strength compared to my old phone on the same network. It drops calls all the time, the battery life is less than 1 day( with autoupdate options off!). It has NO bluetooth voicedialing support ( this is an android limitation). The phone is fast to respond, load apps etc, the screen is good quality altho very hard to see in sunlight.

A must-have if you want a keyboard

  • Excerpt: I have owned this phone for a couple of years and was overall really pleased with it. It runs on Android and so has all the great Google apps on it, with plenty more available through Google Market store. The interface of the phone doesn't seem as responsive as some other Android phones - I find that apps can take a while to load, which is particularly frustrating when wanting to read a new text message.

Not quite an iPhone beater, but one of the better mid-range smartphones out there

  • Excerpt: My main reason for purchasing the Desire Z was for the QWERTY keyboard slide-out attachment. I have mixed opinions on touch screen keyboards, and the keyboards found on Blackberry phones looked too small for me to use. The Desire Z has a simple slide mechanism that allows you to flip out the keyboard, turn the phone on its side and type out a quick text message without much fuss.

  • Excerpt: Every so often you realise that it has merged information that you never asked it to – connecting your Facebook accounts with your address book. I don’t want my friends Facebook profile pics appearing on my screen when they phone me, thank you. Neither do I want you to try force me to give you my email address and phone number so that you can link me to friends and contacts, thank you. Actually, bugger off, I share and link when and how I want.
  • Pros: Nice big screen, and nice big keyboard Fast, responsive screen and interface Classy high-end metal finish
  • Cons: Keyboard is not fingertip friendly, needs a little nipplet on some keys to let you locate your fingers haptically. Display does not auto-sense brightness. There’s meant to be a sensor, so maybe firmware bug Battery life is 2-3 days with only reasonable use, and being careful to turn off power gluttons Z-fold hinge sometimes feels slack, although isn’t – and prevents you using a protective case Extremely Mac unfriendly.

The Desire Z

piratecam..., Ciao
28 January 2011
  • Excerpt: "The Desire Z is a lovely machine, and almost everything I wanted. Lets start with the major selling point of this phone - the keyboard. It is just plain lovely. The keys are well sized, spaced and just firm to the touch. The travel is fairly good. The FN key is sometimes a little awkward to hit but other then that really very good. As a phone not much to complain about either. Calls are strong and loud. Drops hardly ever happen and the 3G radio ...
  • Pros: great keyboard, lovely screen, good call quality
  • Cons: poor battery life, buggy software

HTC Desire Z

  • Conclusion: I recently purchased a HTC Desire Z and I am really pleased with it, although it is on the bulky side and the battery life isn't the best. Apart from that I am happy with it, the apps available are awesome and I think Android OS is a million times better than Apple, BlackBerry and Microsoft windows 7. The camera is good and I have been able to put them on to social networking sites really easily.
