The HTC Desire Z is one of the new upgrades to the original
Desire, with differences including a hinged QWERTY keyboard, Android 2.2 Froyo
and loads of software tweaks, such as integrated email accounts into one inbox.
This phone also has a 3.7 inch, 800x480 pixel, Super LCD
touch screen and feature a 5 megapixel camera with a flash. This handsomely
designed phone will offers 720p HD video recording capabilities. One exciting
new feature on the HTC Desire Z is the optical trackpad, which is awesome for
scrolling through emails and websites. The HTC Desire Z is in the same price
range as other Smartphones, but performs almost like a laptop.
The overall size of this handset is 119mm x 60.4mm x 14.16mm, making it a
prefect two handed phone for texting and searching the web. The new feature of
being able to program two keys is so practical in daily use. Users can program
one of the key to call their most dialled contact or to go right to the website
they visit the most. The other key can be set to a program/application, like
the alarm or GPS. The HTC Desire Z has two redesigned features. The first one
is the 3.5mm jack for the headset that is now is on the top of the phone, which
many find so much better than being on the bottom. The second is a dedicated
camera key that makes it easy to access the camera function.
The software has been given an overhaul as well. The mapping and GPS feature
now has a “Helicopter Mode” that lets you see what is in front of you in your
route. Fast internet surfing is powered by the 600MHz Qualcomm processor, which
is more than adequate. A fun new software addition is the SoundHound application
that can display the details of any song (similar to the hugely popular Shazam
App) just by singing or humming into the phone.
This phone will outperform the previous HTC models by keeping the best features
and updating the ones that needed it. The all-aluminium shell of this handset
gives it a great sleek look perfect for business professionals and the younger
generation alike. Users are sure to be thoroughly impressed with the HTC Desire
Z and all of its features; especially the sliding hinge that pops the full
QWERTY slide out keyboard into place. With the new features like the
“Helicopter Mode” and the two programmable keys, this handset is among the most
practical, user-friendly phones on the market. Additionally, the camera with
flash, and the effortless connection and linking to networking sites, will make
this a must have for any Smartphone enthusiast of any age.
