I had this phone months after it first came out and it was my first foray into the Android world (I had the Sony Ericsson P1i prior to this). Slow as molasses and crashes every now and then. To be fair, this was an earlier generation of Android. It was unfortunately under-powered to run even the later 2.x builds and caused lags and instability while using even the basic phone functions (call and text). Despite that, the design was to die for.... Fold out 'Z' keyboard, replaceable battery, and solid build quality. It had a certain heft in it that makes it feel premium.
My Nexus 5 just broke down and I found good and old HTC Desire Z in my closet. After all that years it works perfectly, even the battery life is 2 days! Built to last...
rock, 02 Dec 2016is it 3g or 4g
3G only of course, it doesn't even have H+, only regulsr H and only on 2 bands. It came in 2010 you know, this was greatness back then.
Awesone built phone, super premium, heavy with thick steel plating, and the z-hinge was like a dream, perfect. But the FreezeOnStandby and countless software issues together with a few failing keyboard keys forced me over on Xperia Pro.

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!
