is the battery life really 9hrs as its provided...??? imp coz want to buy it...
I have been listening about this Z-hinge for a very long time and even at one point of time i too was afraid to buy this phone, but trust me it isnt like it what you see in youtube....
I got this Case (book-type) from Pdair and this phone looks much like a complete business phone and awesome presence. If you think Z-hinge can be an issue for you, get this case.

I want to share my personal reviews on this phone:
1. Adequate RAM, CPU and GPU...so no lag in whatsoever
2. Awesome qwerty keypad, well spacious and easy to use
3. multi-touch & trackpad
4. 720p camcorder - awesome video recording
5. Google Android experience with Froyo
6. GPS, tithering, 3G, Wifi - all in one combo
7. Premium metal finish - increase phone look and feel
1. weighs heavier than other phones (180gm)
>> but you will get used to it... :)
2. Battery mah is less
>> if you are a hardcore user, battery will last only a day, if you disabled edge / 3G you can drag up to 1.5-2days with only calls, however standby is really good (~1.2weeks)
>> Hinge is never an issue, buy a pdair case to make it look more professional

jj, 02 Mar 2011I have updated recently my desire Z to the last OTA (seems to have been activated 2 days ago) ... moreCan you tell me how you updated your phone? I am interested about battery life. Mine usually last 6 to 7 hours. Good phone but battery not so good?
jj, 02 Mar 2011I have updated recently my desire Z to the last OTA (seems to have been activated 2 days ago) ... moreWhat update was this? I wasn't aware there was an update available for the Desire Z. I know that Gingerbread is due to be released in a few months.
Oops, looks like the hyperlink isn't working so here's the link for you to copy and paste:
This might of some interest to most of you's who have a G1, but it'll probably come to G2 quite soon.
Below is a link to an Engadget post of a working Honeycomb port for the G1, a video of the port on the G1 is also included in the post:
tc on the time its took you to decide while you are just moaning about every little thing....htc have brought out a new qwerty phone...get a grip
I have updated recently my desire Z to the last OTA (seems to have been activated 2 days ago) and it seems to me it goes pretty much better. Battery performance has improved. The phone, before, could end the day almost depleting the battery. Now, it has been 1d and 9h and the battery still has 20%. The phone does not have some lags I appreciated before. In general, a very positive update. Have you experienced the same?
The best ,nothing more to say,just the best.
AnonD-252, 24 Feb 2011When I am in bed watching a movie on my phone I hold it only in "the screen-part" be... morethe only solution to that problem is to pick your phone carefully. almost every phone that came out has its own flaws... there is no such thing as the perfect phone. if you're worried about the hinge, u can try other brands. as a desire z user, i'm quite satisfied with it's performance. sure i also worry about the hinge. so that's why i take good care of it. happy phone hunting.
AnonD-123, 23 Feb 2011The lying on your back position can result in the screen drooping down. The way I get around ... morei know what you mean. i do the same so that the screen would not fall or move while lying on my back.
when will the HTC Merge be out into the market?
ankur, 28 Feb 2011i m puzzle in buying htc derire and desire z which one is the best phone They are both very similar. The Desire Z is newer and has better specs. Desire Z has a faster processer, more built it storage and a physical keyboard. Both will be getting Gingerbread later this year.

AnonD-252, 24 Feb 2011I hold all my phones on the very edge of the screen when it is tilted down when I watch movies... moreI cant get you, i tried and i cant hold only the screen part. the closest i came was to hold it between my index fingers by applying an inwards force, but no sane person would hold a fone that way.
AnonD-252, 24 Feb 2011I hold all my phones on the very edge of the screen when it is tilted down when I watch movies... moreThe 4 mm edge of the screen half of the phone is also slanted and rounded. If you do try to hold only this part of the phone, it is more likely to slip from your fingers before the keyboard half opens. It's probably only 2.5 mm slanted and then the other 1.5 mm is rounded away even more.
If you are so against the Z hindge, perhaps the HTC Merge is more to your liking. It features a physical keyboard as well. Information on this phone is rather limited right now, but the keyboard mechanism appears to be a slider instead of the Z hinge mechanism of the Desire Z.
