Overall, the Desire Z performs very well
Great phone from top to bottom
It looks nice and feels solid in your hand
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
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.

It is one of the best designed smartphones in recent memory
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
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
