use simply electronics at your own risk...just google them and you will see....

delivery 1-3 months at Amazon, so it may as well be expired

simply electronics ships from hong kong if im not mistaken? though dont quote me on this might be wrong.

Looking online there are a number of people on Youtube mentioning the hinge mechanism and it being really loose. Anyone on here got one and like to comment? TIA

They are by design what you may call a bit loose. However some, including the one I bought at Christmas, are a little looser than others. This is noticeable when the keyboard is out; you can feel a gap between the keyboard and screen. When I realised that mine was not quite how it should be, I sent it off to HTC who repaired it and I had it back within a week. This issue is not something that would prevent me from buying one of these phones again as they are utterly awesome for someone who wants a physical keyboard.

I should imagine that Amazon will have it in stock for immediate dispatch quite soon and rather than save a few quid buying elsewhere, I'd buy from them as their return policy is awesome. £265 is a superb price for this phone. I managed to pick mine up for £331 at Christmas after discount vouchers and quidco (which has incidentally been paid.) and that was a great price at the time. I bought mine from Expansys and they told me I had to deal with HTC after 28 days. I have very little doubt that Amazon would deal with it by replacing it well after 28 days.

Cheers. How's the battery life? I'm coming from a non-smartphone so a bit worried about it being crap.

I won't lie to you, it's crap but no crapper than any other smartphone. A few tweaks here or there with your settings and it may last you a couple of days but you will be getting into the habit of charging it every night. One of these is a must for any smartphone user who doesn't want to get caught short:

amazon.co.uk/Tec…8-2

You'll get 2-3 full charges from it. Today I went on a 3 hour bike ride and had 2 GPS apps tracking the ride which are very hungry for juice. Normally the phone would go from fully charged to around 40% at the end but I had the above battery pack linked to the phone and I was still at 100% at the finish and still 3 out of 3 bars on the above charger. It's approxmately the same size as the phone and is quite pretty in its gloss black finish!

Hope that helps and if you have any more questions, I'll be happy to answer them tomorrow as I'm off to bed now

Thanks.

I was going for this, until I read the new about Android tracking and reporting to Google. I don't like someone to follow me around, then push targeted ads or share my data with partners in crime.

they don't - they ask you when you first turn on the phone - just say no.

Is this basically the HTC desire with a qwerty keyboard?

no, the desire has a better/faster processor (among other differences)

though the desire does have a faster processor, most people say they can't tell the difference between them. Also, the desire has some pretty crazy overclocking speeds. At the cost of battery life.

so why do you reckon this has become cheap?
I'm trying to resist buying one in the hope that there are better ones coming soon

There is a rumour that the HTC Doubleshot is the successor to the Desire Z and could be released in July (not sure whether it will be US-only). Leaked specs say that it may have a 1.2 GHz processor, 800×480 screen, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and HTC Sense UI 3.0 and a 6+ megapixel camera with HDR capabilities. If its released in the UK it will probably cost around £500 initially.

Did you pick one up in the end?

Bottled it.

Waiting for something a bit more perfect. Might be waiting a while...

Remember there's no such thing as a perfect phone and there's always something better around the corner!! For me the Desire Z is as close to perfect a phone as there has been released. Good luck with whichever phone you decide on

The new Xperia Mini Pro is catching my eye. A bit smaller so might be better on battery life and I don't use my phone for movies anyway. Doubt it will be as cheap as this was though.

bunch of losers! they find people are buying their gear and they hike up the price.
