Hmm, you maybe right. I'm using my second phone now, and unless I carelessly pick it up by the edge it does not seem to be a problem in general use - so far, anyway.

The time most people had on theirs hands was due to all the delays in pre orders meaning we would watch review vids lol... but yeah I agree that in everyday use the hinge isnt really an issue (unless using the keyboard when laying on your back)

There is review by telefonino and hinge seems more or less solid. Could somebody from Italy translate that part about hinge?

I'm Italian and I can translate that for you:

Andrea: "Desire Z open: if you play with it, turn it upside down and tossing it remains quite stable.
Even when closed, it has not big problems, and it's very difficult to take only one part too.
The “Z” movement, in daily use, doesn't create any problem.
We do not know if in a few years the springs will be ok like today, but speaking of today this open/close system is ok
"

I have my desire Z here in my hand and it opens a bit when upside down, but Andrea is saying right: it's so difficult to grab this phone only with the top or the back: nearly impossible in normal daily use
Don't worry guys, if you do not buy this phone is not because of the hinge. But for the weight, or the bugs with skype and location. Or the whole "sense"

Thanks everybody for this forum, for the rom's and for all this work that I love so much!

I wasn't so bothered about the hinge being loose to open - it was more the top wobbling when the device was closed that bothered me.
Anyway - sent the phone back today by Special Delivery for a refund.

I feel that way too, about the wobbling. Too bad I have it unlocked and voided the warranty. Otherwise I would have returned it.

You want a stiff slide, get a Milestone, then you have nothing to complain about.

Does anyone know how to return the phone when it is unlocked? I purchased it from Bell in canada
