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 :-(...

1Ghz phone my friends are using. All inbuilt and android application works perfectly , great sense of touch,Gingerbread 2.3.3 works perfectly fine. I found only two disadvantages overall weight(becoz of the sliding qwerty keypad) and battery performance (which i think same problem with any smartphone), other than that the phone is simply superb. I would suggest to use rubberized or leather protector case to avoid any scratches. It would have been great if HTC release ICS for this phone, any idea if they are going to ???

I just sent my HTC Desire Z in because the battery began draining down to zero in less than 24 hrs. When HTC recieved it they said that the mother board was damaged? I dropped the phone once about 6 months ago and it caused a slight superficial scratch on the screen but otherwise it was working fine.
Is this normal with these phones because HTC wants to bill me $200 for the repair

It is my first HTC phone, but i am sure of it, i will never buy an HTC product again.
Phone works perfect until the on board memory burns out under six months and HTC does not service outside of the USA
AnonD-22234, 12 Apr 2012hey friends just wanted to know if it is possible to upgrade the software to android 4 version... moreIf you root it and unlock the bootloader, yes, you can put ICS on it. I'm running ICS (Cyanogenmod 9) for a few months now and it's much better, faster, more fluid than the stock software, be it Froyo or Gingerbread.
Also, to the people complaining about the 800 MHz CPU, once you root the phone you can easily overclock it, I'm usually running mine on 1.5 GHz.
Can anyone tell me what is the current cost of this phone. I'm seeing some on ebay for USD$180 but i'm not sure how true it is. Please advise.
apm, 26 Jun 2012which one is better? Htc desire z or nokia e7?Desire Z. Trust me.

I've had it for less than 3 months and i'm regret... moreI owned this phone because of the fact of keyboard, I have iPhone, blackberry. from work and the galaxy s1, but I prepared the htc desire z comparison to the 3 that I have, I drop it many times but haven't experience shattering the glass since its made from gorilla glass, maybe you shouldn't throw it hard! The keyboard hard to handle,if ur to used to it, tooks me a while to like since I owned the old htc windows with keyboard as well. Generally quite good but the camera sometime when focusing the subjec and it's moves a lot, you won't have good shot.
yes the camera is not that nice , the cpu is less powerful than the one in desire a8181 , but you can learn how to use the camera for best shots by practice. the keybord is cool , I like the softkeys, because people are complaining about how fast they lose performance, I complain too. but in general view, Htc rocks

2 years on, I still love this phone desperate all the latest phone come out on market. I will not change this phone, I'm gona use it until it breaks down and by then I hope HTC will make new version HTC desire z with faster processor as most phone now are 1.5gb as is not much of a problem as I use WiFi most of the time. I generally really hate texting on any touchscreen phone which that's why I love the slide out keyboard. I hate the fact people only buy iPhone because it apple and yes they have good advert on tv the market their product not because its a great phone, if they all know knew what HTC are capable of then they will think twice about purchasing iPhone
