All these years later I used a dozen other models always the premium segment of smartphones, but it is the thoughts always go back to the Desire Z , one of the best if not the number 1.
This phone is/(was?) absolutely legendary. It has all of the little things that make you happy to have a quality phone, including mod support. I've been using mine daily since 2011 with a few battery changes. You won't say that for a lot of phones!

IlseKv, 31 May 2015Do not buy this phone when you look for quality. Battery life is dreadfull. The phone itself i... moreUse custom firmware, Cyanogenmod 10/11 for example with huge SD card. Also install Clockworkmod and clear app and Dalvik cache with it after installing apps.
It will work as fast as stock firmware.
But battery is a real problem.
Do not buy this phone when you look for quality. Battery life is dreadfull. The phone itself is very slow and storing capacity is so small you can hardly safe any contacts.
Then if there is just a drop of water coming close to this phone it will be destroyed same goes for sand or pretty much anything.
Plus the thing is unbreakable if you look at the screen alone. I dropped it down the stairs, my horse stood on it and it fell on concrete and the screen itself was perfectly fine.
The elictronics is a diffrent story though.
how come when I log into my friends stream it says it does not work need an answer before the phone gets broken please
DesireZ-user, 03 Feb 2015Device uses normal sim, not mini sim.It does use Mini-SIM. A Standard SIM is as large as a credit card. ;)
Great phone, I upgraded it to Android 4.4.4 Kitkat, and it works fine, but sometimes really slow, probably because of hardware... Dont know if any earlier Android system will work better...
