I bought this one to substitute my netbook, and it is nice a lot! Goodbye windows. There are places where my old modem couldn't get HDSPA and the dZ can do it. Using 3G and/or GPS will consume your battery very, very fast, so i use two usb cable charges pluged on computers, one at home and the other at the office. For better use of my resources i'm carrying two phones, the old one used for calls, and the new one for web, mails, news and other apps. Usb miniplug is the same from my Nokia.

Typing on screen is not too hard, it' nice, so i'm using the phisical keyboard only when i'm in a taxi or on a train, so it's not absolutely necessary for me, and would consider a cheaper phone without the keyboard and extra thickness. The resolution 800x480 is nice and the screen size is very good, i don't need extra size screen, or would consider directly one galaxy tab if size matters. I also bought an ipod touch 4th generation. At home me and my wife and daughter are using it a lot, and we can compare some differences between the android and the lighter apple. We can download apps from both markets for example. On the Htc i can watch any kind of videos, surf on flash based sites, and don't need to sinc anything with itunes. Htc share easily the 3G connection to the ipod when we need. On the ipod touch i see a slightly better reading experience with the little higher screen resolution (960x640). Photos and videos are great on both, i'm a photographer and this is important for me.

Last advise, those phones will be nothing in a few years, both because the new tecnologies, and the hardware damage using it everywhere everyday. So if you are on a budget i would recomend a cheaper mid-line phone instead of the top ones.

I came to amazon looking for a good android phone with a keyboard and I came across THIS.

When I get a new phone I do a ton of research first. I read and watch reviews I look up the specs read articles and comparisons and this then that.

I came across this phone which was released in 2010. (I ordered this phone in 2012 by the way). I was drawn to it due to it's clean appearance, and it's keyboard. I INSIST ON HAVING A FULL QWERTY KEYBOARD ON MY MOBILE DEVICE.
After viewing some comparisons to other phones like the iphone 4 and the sidekick 4g I decided to try it out as i could get one unlocked for around 200$ which is such a value.

It arrived in the mail soon and I AM NOT DISAPPOINTED IN THE SLIGHTEST.

-FIRST of all the phone is aesthetically LOVELY.
- It has a clean metallic look to it. the front has a very attractive metal border with that scratchy-metal texture that looks GREAT and a trackpad with a chrome-y finish
- the screen is just the right size about as big as it can be for the the size of the phone.
-It's a bit thick because of the QWERTYboard but I am ok with that and it looks good when the keyboard is slid out or put away.
-The back of it has a metal battery cover with that scratchy texture to it and it looks GREAT. It is removed by sliding a small switch; not too difficult to remove yet stays in place unlike many other phones.

.....BUILD QUALITY......
-The phone has some weight to it and feels sturdy. I have not dropped it yet and that is because I have trained my mind to prevent me from dropping phones over the years. I did get a nice-looking snap on cover for it and a screen protector just in case.
-The keyboard is attached to the phone with what HTC calls a "Z-hinge".

Beautiful screen quality.
Decent camera/video. Not spectacular, but it's a PHONE. As a camera/videocam, it is functional and useful. It's fine.
LOVE the keyboard. Oh yeah.
User interface and the look-and-feel of the OS is very nice.
Lovely brushed aluminum case makes it feel substantial in the hand and it looks super sexy.

1. When coming from New Zealand to the US and swapping my NZ sim card out for a US sim, it could NOT connect to my google accounts. And, it would periodically stop accepting text messages. I could send them fine, I could make and receive calls. Texts just went into the void. I had to do a full system reset, which meant I had to reload all my apps and account info. And I'll probably have to do it AGAIN whenever I travel between the two countries (every year) and swap sims. Research suggests this might be an HTC specific problem. Or it could be android. Anyway, something to look out for.
2. The light sensor that triggers the backlight on the menu and keyboard is flaky, so a lot of times it won't come on even in very low ambient light. From various discussion boards it seems this is a common problem.

Over all, if you want a full-featured, very smart, android phone, this is not a bad choice.

This cell phone performed excellent as expected. It has a very nice look. I got this for my cousin that is overseas in Europe. After configuring everything in it I can say that it really deserves the 5 stars. Battery life is good too.

Got this phone for international travel - currently in Africa (Tanzania) and the phone works on Vodacom's HSDPA 3G network. Able to use as wireless hotspot with great throughput. I upgraded to Gingerbread and the phone actually has excellent battery life. I would highly recommend this phone for international (Europe/Africa) travel. However one minor point is that the physical keyboard keys are widely spaced which took some getting used to if you have smaller fingers.

Seller was very fast and product brand-new in mint condition.
