It has a bug when opening Gallery. It fails to load some of the pictures taken with camera. That's the only drawback I experienced so far. Other than that, the phone is great
i am using this phone from last one and half year. its great phone and all of things are awesome.
I have both this and the Xperia Pro. The Xperia Pro is better in almost everything, for example the keyboard is a lot better, so many advantages. Its also 25% faster and doesnt give you any serious slowdowns or hangs as is common on HTCs (HTC Sense is slow, theres no denying it)

I have had the phone for almost a year now. The physical keyboard works wonders and performance is great if you dont go crazy with apps. The phone dropped from my pocket while riding my bike, I was horrified, a passerby picked it up with concern as big as mine, and to our surprise, there was only a tiny scratch at the bottom of the display. Now Im sure I didnt threw money away when I bought it.
I have this phone from january 2011, it was great. Yesterday i made update of some programs. When started Book and travel to update it frozed for a long time, so i removed the battery. Up to now i cant turn it on. The battery is ok, i checked it. I've tried to recharge, nothing. I gave it to service, and the man said that cant even boot. He will try to fix it, but all my information - contacts, sms, etc. will be gone. Any ideas how can i return my contacts?
ADVICE: BACK UP ALL INFO IN YOUR PHONE EVERY DAY!
I've had this device for more than a year now.
I could go into how HTC are annoying with their policies or how carriers make things annoying, but instead I will focus on what this device CAN be.
Coming from a Nokia E71 (also posted opinion on this web site) I wanted the things it didn't have: Proper Web Browsing, proper online video, good camera.
This device gets stuff done. Well.
It communicates well. The physical keyboard makes chatting a breeze (unlike On Screen Keyboard which hide half the conversation, ahm iphone ahm)
I even wrote a bit of code on it to calculate something via an SDK called AIDE.
The world of Android is literally at your fingertips, and except for games that specifically require nvidia tegra, everything works.
It syncs with several accounts, it lets me do work on the go, It plays music in my car while the navigation is also telling me where to go, this is a wonderful device.
The only issue is that it is easily breakable.
This device, unlike the legendary nokia e71, would not survive the apocalypse. so be careful, but enjoy!
apm, 26 Jun 2012which one is better? Htc desire z or nokia e7?Htc desire z of course!!!!nokia e7 is shit it has a nasty keybord and a very bad touch screen

It seems like you bought non original phone and I am sura about it becz many many times I have dropped it on the ground from a high distance probably 6 feet and nothing happened to the phone not even one scratch,the battery life is not poor like you are saying it is actually acceptable and I have noticed this but I can not say neither that the battery life is perfect neither the battery life is poor...btw this phone is not at allll fragile it is very solid,made of high quality materials and has a solid build quality and it is quite durable :)
cubbie ears, 20 Jul 2012I just sent my HTC Desire Z in because the battery began draining down to zero in less than 24... moreIt depends how much was the force of the hit...if you dropped it from a high distance it is normal!!!

THIS IS A CALL TO ALL DESIRE Z LOVERS,
Desire Z is my phone for little over a year. It got one upgrade only so far. I recommend that we e-mail htc to provide the ics upgrade or even the JB which is better. I am asking Desire Z owners to start e-mailing the company for such upgrades for their great benefits that suit such a great high quality phone.
Neosg, 22 Jul 2012I have been using HTC Desire z from past one year and i love it. Works better than any other
... moreHello there,
Desire Z is my phone too for little over a year. It got one upgrade only so far. Ibrecommend that we e-mail htc to provide the ics upgrade or even the JB which is better. I will post a comment now to ask Desire Z owners to start e-mailing the company for such upgrades for their great benefits that suit such a great high quality phone.
Good phone..i've been using it for the past 1 and half year..the only and major problem being that it gets damaged very easily and you have to get it repaired quite often.
The only problem that I got on DesireZ is no upgrade to Android 4.X and no google play store app :-(...
