I've heard some people say that this 800MHz processor that is made from the new 45nm technology performs better than the older 65nm 1GHz Snapdragon processor. Is this true? And can it handle heavy 3D games without lag?

Is there any chance of accidental opening of the keyboard when I don't want to open it or while it is in my pocket? Is it possible to use the keyboard comfortably while lying on bed as gravity causes automatic closure of keyboard?
I'm fond of this beauty but my only concern is the HINGE. Hope to get proper feedback.

tom, 06 Jan 2011well i was going to get the phone but naw im not sure and im thinking of getting the lg optimu... moreIts 2nd gen, and HTC software is superior to LG/Samsung. just look how slow an unpatched Galaxy S is? And the patches dont come from samsung, they dont care, they always sold flawed fons and did quite well. Coz low skill users and the grey mases dont care, they will not notice, they onli see the Specs on the paper and lives happily ever after. R u one of them?
performance is worthless if the fone and the software isnt well made, HTC is dong a much better job, its incredible that so advanced units can have so few software issues. Samsung and LG just want to push out high specced fones, they dont care about issues or after sales services. Thats ok for a non-advanced user, but if u r an enthusiast u wil notice and you will suffer.
well i was going to get the phone but naw im not sure and im thinking of getting the lg optimus black or x2. htc got it wrong by not putting a 1gh snapdragon processor god why didn't they
A large proportion of our development team own this device. I can tell you that it is easily overclockable to a safe and STABLE 1.5Ghz, making it quicker than any other handset I've used.
On another note, check out villainrom.co.uk for a custom Gingerbread ROM, out now. Forget waiting ;)

So no problem if they bring Gingerbread to Desire Z ;)

I wanted to buy this phone but the processor gives me a doubt if this will be upgradable for at least 3.0. at least Desire has 1Ghz processor which has more chance to be upgraded to 2.3 and 3.0.
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2011Can this phone update to 2.3 or 3.0? i'm having 2.2 galaxy S and now wanna switch to HTC ,... moreyes it can far as im aware, most of the newer school phones are capable of supporting gingerbread. most things with a 1gig processor should support gingerbread.

As for push mail, it is only for Gmail accounts. For other email accounts, it polls them. The is a way to get push mail with other accounts. What you have to do is forward you other account to Gmail. Then when your other account receives email, it will instantly forward to Gmail and then you will instantly get it pushed to your phone. I do that with my email and it is as fast as my BlackBerry.

I buy this HTC on 1st jan 2011..this phone really great..especiallyduring surfing internet..no lag and fast..like using pc..
Hey guys, I have just got the HTC Desire Z a few days ago and I have absolutely no problems with it. My previous phone was an iphome 3G S and this phone is much better. As far as the battery life is concerned, it lasts me a full day. HTC FTW!

2)- It has 3G. No video call due to lack of secondary camera.
I am planning to buy HTC DESIRE Z. I am from India > Bombay. I have few questions in my mind which i would like to ask to the people who own this handset or the ones who have idea about ANDROID os.
1) The device comes with Android OS, v2.2 (Froyo). Should the OS be upgraded to the latest version GINGERBREAD ? Is this possible ? i want know if the phone can be upgraded for better performance in future..
2) 3G services are going to be out in 2011 here. So video calling is possible ?
3) Voice Calls Can be made VIA skype using the data traffic ?
THanks in Advance...
