feko, 15 Apr 2011is the z hinge mechanism a real problem?? for me that is not a real problem. you can use touch screen keyboard to avoid the hinge problem. i bought this phone on new year eve of 2011 and never use that slide-out keyboard until now.

Doing a Google search, it appears that there are sites that support the fact that the Desire Z has gorilla glass. One site did a scratch test.
I personally won't know gorilla glass from some other substance if it were staring me in the face (which it is), so I cannot personally verify it. I am also not willing to risk trying to scratch my screen to answer your question. :)

I appreciate any reply.. =)
This is a pretty nice phone. Easy to use qwerty keypad which folds under so it doesn't get in the way of the touchscreen. Android easy as ever to run. This is pretty much a personal taste phone. If your looking for the HTC touchscreen experience with buttons then this is the choice for you.
kortaro, 16 Apr 2011not really a problem, thou if you did get the g2 version (in america under t mobile) it would ... moreDesire Z have problems with the hinge, it has not been "fixed"! But not everyone see the loose hinge as any problem at all, it is very easy to open the keyboard so some actually see the loose hinge as something good. It is better to have a too loose hinge than a too hard hinge, and the hinge is loose for open and closing the keyboard but it is not loose so it would feel as if it would break.
I can live with the bad loose hinge, but I have real problems with the fact that I can not use any office editing program other than the limited version of quickoffice that come with the phone, because HTC still have not fixed the fatal problem with åäö always is ÅÄÖ and closing and opening the keyboard again only "fix" this when using the limited version of quickoffice that come with the phone, but it does not fix the problem when I use any other, better, office-editing software from the Market, and in those program not even ? or ! is working when I use the keyboard.

feko, 15 Apr 2011is the z hinge mechanism a real problem?? not really a problem, thou if you did get the g2 version (in america under t mobile) it would be since it tended to have loose connections and not so flush when closed or opened, the desire z seems to have fixed this, seen quite a few of them but none seem to have had the problem of the older g2s

sud, 14 Apr 2011Is the firmware update for desire z only or for t-mobile G2 too?Not sure about the G2. I know that people in other countries have received the update before I did in Canada (Bell).
Owned it. Nice looking. Nice feel. Nice weight. Highly customizable and interface is well thought out.
However it eventually started to lag so bad and a hard reset doesn't help.
Apps require forced closing frequently and I don't even have much downloaded.
Caved in eventually, changed to an iPhone which is "dumber" and has a better user experience.
There is a reason why iPhone sells so well.
An INR 28K phone without a secondary camera... Only HTC can do it!!!!
