Just wanted to say that, I bought a Desire Z just over a week ago, and I am pretty happy with my purchase. I was on the Hero beforehand, and maybe that's why, but I don't have any real complaints. It's much faster, I got the 2.3 updated OTA as soon as I turned it on, and didn't hesitate to install it as I wanted to have the latest and the best! And no issues to report so far, and hopefully it'll stay that way. The physical keyboard doesn't seem as great as that of the HTC Kaiser which was my other previous phone, but that may be because I got used to that. The only peculiar thing that happens is that after I install an app, when I press home after the installation is complete, I get the white HTC screen, and then before the homepage loads I see the loading circle and a blank background. This is only for a few secs however, and I get my proper homepage and icons afterwards. I won't say anything bad about battery life because I am yet to see a smartphone that can really give you 1 day's usage if you're a heavy user of apps and internet (I'm a social media fanatic!). Thinking of getting one of those higher capacity batteries of eBay so will see... what do y'all think?
