Neowin Member Reviews: HTC Desire Z

It's that time of the week again, where we showcase a review submitted by a member in our forums. Remember that we consider all reviews that are submitted here. Who knows, your review might make the front page next week!

This week we've selected a review by seasonic.

Today I’m going to be reviewing the HTC Desire Z (This phone is similar and looks like the T-Mobile G2 in the US and the CDMA version is the HTC Merge ; The codename for this phone is HTC Vision)

The phone actually feels pretty good in the hand. The weight makes it feel solid rather than heavy. I expected that I would notice the weight but actually not at all. Got sort of use to it as if it was natural.

The back cover that covers that battery is made of metal and gives a nice touch to it. Makes you want to touch the phone! There are moments when you get "confused" on if to open the keyboard towards the left or the right but in a second, you can figure it out.

The buttons on the phone are so so: Most, if not all, could be a bit thicker and stick out more. Some music applications allow you to hold the volume up/down buttons and skip songs. After a week and heavy music listening, I still have trouble finding the up/down buttons. The front captive buttons (Home, Menu, Back and Search) are so so to touch but this does get better with practice and getting use to the phone. I find myself naturally knowing now how to use them.
