Anonymous, 28 Jan 2011hi, how is the hinge? GSMARENA has quoted about the loose hinge...The issues with the hinge are overblown. I have had it since November and never have any issues with the hinge and I use the keyboard almost all the time for entering text. The fact that it does not lock in place is generally not an issue. When using the keyboard, you're generally going to hold it in a way that the screen doesn't flip up. The supports seem solid enough as well. They perhaps look thin, but they feel like they are made of some really hard metal when I touch them.
I have been using the phone for about 10 hours now. I like the phone, the weight does not bother me, i rly liked the contact tranfer option from the previous phone, because the SIM card could not store all of mine. The phone is rly responsive and all, but gave me some hard time, since i'm using android for the first time. i could do just anything but send text messages. not long ago i figured out that my service center number was not correct, so i fixed it, and it works now. i have another issue tho, from time to time i get a popup about smsing to a group named after my hometown. i'm not rly sure what's that about, but probably the effect of synchronizing stuff from mail/facebook and other stuff. it hasnt send any smses, so i dont rly care. and it doesnt popup while i have the wireless turned off. the camera is nice also, the fps on the video seems to be dependant on what i was recording. seems to work a bit better when the amount of things in front of the camera in smaller. photos are sharp, flash is great, the hinge is working perfectly, overall i rly like the phone. the only thing that upset me was the stuff with smses, which took me some time to fix.
Have this phone about three weeks now. It's a really good phone, lots of options, quick and confortable.
It's pretty heavy, but that's not a problem for me.
The only issues I have, is that the keyboard isn't the most comfortable one (had N97 on wich less press power was required), and the batterylife (almost an entire day if I don't use it too much), plus it uses a lot of data very easy (wich is an issue if you have a data limited subscribtion like me).
Otherwise it works smooth, no hinge problem (it's overrated), it's fast, and user friendly.
me, 27 Jan 2011could u share ur exp ? thxi'll write something about it tomorrow. i bought the phone this evening, now it's in the 16h long charging phase -.-
btw when it comes to the z hinge... first i tested a phone in a shop. the keyboard moved rly fast and made a not too comfortable noise when it hit the bottom of the screen. but they had one of the early versions of the phone. when i tested mine, it moved rly smoothly, and didnt make any noise when i open the keyboard.
as i said, now the phone is still charging, they told me that the battery reaches max capacity after 10 chargings, so i probably wont be able to comment on that anytime soon. but i'll tell you about the rest of my experience asap.

Anonymous, 25 Jan 2011Can anyone tell me what is the price of desire z..??The price in Canada without a contract is $500.
Anonymous, 25 Jan 2011Can anyone tell me what is the price of desire z..??with my operater it costs 380€ + you have to subscribe and pay 10€ each month for 2 years. and it's a bit under 600€ if you buy it without subscription.
btw can any1 compare the sound quality of the loudspeaker to the one of P1i?
i just bought this phone as a birthday gift for myself. sure it's quite expensive, but i really think that it's worth the expense.
i agree with the others that the loudspeaker is not that great. but it's not poor either. camera quality is really good (with the effects and all).
as for the applications and functionality, i still need time to explore it. Generally, i think this phone is worth the money.
If you have tips on how to maximize and improve the usage and performance of desire z, please feel free to post it for others to read.
