In your opinion. Others, myself included, differ.

The phone feels both heavy and insecure
The extra weight is the inevitable penalty for the keyboard. It surely wasn't a surprise to you?

The entire justification for this is so that you can open the keyboard with one hand. Really? And then what?
It's immediately ready for use. Pull from pocket, open keyboard, start typing - no fumbling around.

I would much rather have had a more traditional (and more stable) slide out keyboard as seen in the Motorola Milestone and other HTC keyboard phones.
Then you bought the wrong handset. It happens. Probably best try to sell the Z on and replace it with something you can live with.
