Overall, the Desire Z performs very well

from Digital Versus
The HTC Desire Z is an excellent smartphone that is so brimming over with services and widgets that anybody who wants to customise their phone as much as possible will clearly want one. Although it's a still a relatively small field, this is far and away the best Android phone with a slide-out keyboard... Full review

Great phone from top to bottom

from Mobile Syrup
The sleek and durable design combined with the elegant and user friendly interface make for a great device and gift idea for the upcoming holiday season. The large screen with touch capabilities makes using the device very enjoyable since there is little fuss. Videos and maps are clear and vivid on the 3.7” screen and the slide out keyboard allows for convenient user input... Full review

It looks nice and feels solid in your hand

from Mobile Syrup

The HTC Desire Z landed at Bell earlier this week – certainly a good addition to their Android lineup. It runs OS 2.2 and comes with the new HTC Sense 2.0 UI. Checking out the device it looks very similar to the Desire that TELUS has but with a few major changes. The first is the addition of the optical trackpad and most obvious is the “pop-out” full 4-row QWERTY keyboard.

There is no doubt that the Desire Z is a beautiful smartphone. It looks nice and feels solid in your hand. The weight might be a downer at 180 grams but all the other aspects make up for i... Full review


It is certainly a looker - a rather heavy one, however

from PhoneArena

The HTC Desire Z is one of the only two handsets so far with the new version of Sense UI, and deserved our attention, even just for that. HTC didn't stop here to make it stand out in the Android crowd, however, and added a physical keyboard with clever, if somewhat pointless,  Z-hinge mechanism.

Wrapped around in brushed aluminum, with soft-touch coating where needed, the HTC Desire Z is certainly a looker - a rather heavy one, however. The physical keyboard is not perfect, but it is better than most on this rare breed of Android handsets, which have side-sliding QWE... Full review


It is one of the best designed smartphones in recent memory

from PhoneArena

Yes, it's a design marvel from every aspect you look at it seeing that the T-Mobile G2 is one of the best designed smartphones in recent memory. For a while there, we were beginning to wonder if US consumers would ever see an HTC handset that rivals the Nexus One in terms of premium quality. Its metallic, tough exterior will undoubtedly radiate a sense of durability, but its Achilles Heel might be found with its hinge mechanism. Aside from that, its keyboard is one of the better ones out there in the market as it employs a smart layout with buttons that provide great feedback. On th... Full review

The T-Mobile G2 has enough going for it in hardware design and features to make it easy to recommend

from Phone Scoop

The T-Mobile G2 is an awesome phone with some superlative features, but HTC and T-Mobile didn’t quite push this phone far enough ahead of the Android pack. The phone is insanely fast in every way. In terms of interface performance, there was never a lag or delay in any action, and even the most intense features, like gaming or graphically rich apps, ran swimmingly on the G2. Network performance was equally impressive, and this phone claimed the crown of fastest Web browser among all the 4G-speed devices I have currently in my stable.

The hardware is great. I love... Full review
