HTC should really start packing their phone with a battery capacity of 1500 to 1800mAh.

The only downside to the Desire Z amongst the competition is battery life where it is quite poor due to the small battery.

Otherwise it's an amazing device.

For a long time I was very satisfied with my Nokia N82 and I was waiting and waiting for Nokia to come up with something that should outperform Iphone and Android-phones. But the N8 seems to be a disappointment so I have been looking more closely at the Desire Z and I must say that it looks promising and impressive, so it will most likely be my next phone. I guess Nokia can easily be forgotten with a Desire Z.

I was a Nokia fan but when I tried the Android wuaaahh I was blown away too....it was like flying..then I started to discover all the tricks with my Hero, rooting, flashing a different ROM and many others things.Now with the Desire even better, I will not go back to symbian....no way!!

But still, the N8 is a fantastic phone with lots of things I will miss in the Desire HD. Chronologically:
1.FM transmitter (I have no AD2P on my car stereo)
2.USB on the go
3.HDMI (although the DLNA makes up for a lot :D)

come on, even on a desktop computer, online storage is not interesting yet due to the low download and especially low upload speeds (at least here in Belgium)

I don't want to spend like half of my 2GB data plan to one movie, which I can copy faster an easier with a simple cable I always put in my backpack (or handbag if you're a woman or something in between :D )

shouldn't be to hard to make a decision, for me it's the Desire Z all the way, although if the Desire Z would not have existed, I would have gone for the E7

I currently own an N97 and am looking possible replacements for it. I love the qwerty keyboard, so right now, I'm considering the HTC Desire Z as well as the Nokia E7. The Desire Z has a better UI and screen resolution. The E7 is more familiar to me, has a bigger screen and would be an easier transition.

So, the only downside I see to this phone (as opposed to my N97) is the internal memory... At 1.5GB it make my 32GB N97 a champion... But my N97 fails everywhere else. I think I'll use it as an MP3 player when I get this phone haha.

If you want to use USB on-the-go you always have to carry the extra adapter-cable with you and I do not think many users will actually do that so the USB on-the-go is pointless.

I was also considering getting a N8 but then I looked more and more into the HTC Desire Z and I have grown to like it. I do think that it looks nicer than the N8 however, I wish we were able to choose the different colors. Also about the usb-on-the-go subject, i read that there is an app called dropbox. You first install it on your computer and than on your phone, when you do this you are able to see the files you stored in the dropbox in either your phone or your computer, essentially a wireless way of file sharing.
And yes I will be giving up that 12 megapixel camera but i'm sure a 5 megapixel will do just fine.
overall, i have been looking for a phone with a physical keyboard and it was either the desire z or even the the Nokia E7, but it just seems as though the desire z has won me over

Is this the Black version of Desire Z? Or is it just bad lighting in the video? At 1.23 the back cover is a lot darker than the normal silver/grey version. Would prefer the Desire Z in black, but that's just my preference.
