Also, for your information the keyboard half is heavier than the screen half.
I personally always put the phone on a surface with the screen up. When picking up the phone you have to apply horizontal pressure as you squeeze the phone on the long sides. This grip will tend to keep both halves of the phone closed.
I tried picking up the phone with the screen down. The result is pretty much the same. You grip the sides of the phone and this grip prevents the Z hinge from opening.
It is highly unlikely that when picking up the phone for you to grip only the keyboard half or screen half of the phone (which ever is facing up). You end up gripping both halves. The only way you would grip only one half of the phone is if you intentionally try to do so. No one who picks up the phone would normally try to intentionally try to only grip the top half of the phone. If you do this to any phone, you would be more prone to drop it because your grip would be poor. You would not grip the Desire Z this way and you would not grip any other phone this way when picking it up either.

AnonD-123, 19 Feb 2011Many of the criticisms of the hinge do not reflect the reality of most everyday, regular use. ... moreMany complain about the fact that the z-hinge does not lock the keyboard in place at all when it is closed and it moves irritatingly even when the keyboard is not being used. Normally I do not hold my phone so that my fingers support the screen, but the z-hinge and the fact that the screen is so heavy force the user to do so. Z is 180 g, and that is very heavy for a phone, so to be able to accept this 180 g it have to be "perfect", and sadly the z-hinge is far from perfekt.
The datacable to the screen on N97 mini is more protected and it also have a similar hinge but it firmly locks in position when it open or it is closed, z is the only qwerty that does not firmly lock the screen in place in either open or closed.
I love HTC Sence, and do not like the user interface on SonyEricsson phones

The many videos show the person holding it in an way that you would not do so normally. As someone who has used the phone for three months, it is not a problem for me. I have never picked the phone up or used it in a way that results in the keyboard accidentally opening or closing. The way I normally use this phone and the way I see others use theirs most of the time, I do not expect the hinge to be an issue.
The position of lying on your back holding the phone above you is the only one that will cause any inconvenience. If you use the phone in this position and it is too much trouble for you to prop the screen up with a finger or two, then perhaps you should look at a different phone. One professional reviewer also suggests doing this.
There are things in the design that I would have liked to be a little different, all things considered, I am quite happy with the keyboard.

I also think that bad things on any phone needs to be clear to all potential buyers, and I really like Z but I read to many reviews by professional reviewers who all have problems with the z-hinge, so all buyers should know that the z-hinge is a real problem before they decide to buy the phone. The qwerty is the reason to buy Z but the z-hinge make users avoid using the qwerty so they have wasted money on a qwerty that they end up not using because of the z-hinge. The design is bad because the qwerty should be locked firmly in the position that the user wants it to be, open or closed, and simply gravity or vibrations when texting should not be able to close or open the qwerty if the user does not want to open or close it, and if the user want to text in bed holding the phone upsidedown the user should be able to do so, and if the qwerty was well designed then it would be locked firmly in open position so that not simple gravity can open it.

yes yes this phone is amazing nerd love it

I am trying to find all negatives on Z so that I can convince myself to wait for SE Pro. I do not like the UI on SE but the hardware is great, If only Z had not choosen this Z-hinge...
when i got the h/s i charged it over night it has still got 90% battery after 30 hours
ive used the h/s upside down and the screen didnt fall down
aparently aswell since ive had the phone im now even better lookign that before :)
the e7 hinge is discusting it makes me feel sick thinking about it
its not even in the shaope of a z
If I read the comments here and see the score,than I need to smile. Have the phone about 1 month now at believe me it is really good. No unwanted open of closing keyboard, good speed, good battery life for a smartphone, keys are big enough, Androit is nice. Top mobile.
