“Measuring only 106х46х16 mm in size and weighting 108 grams, the Z3 readily slips in any pocket without bringing about any discomfort or something even worse. Key lock may be turned on automatically, preventing the function keys from being accidentally pressed. The handset utilizes a traditional RAZR-style keypad – if there are still some people among our readers not familiar with it, we shall describe it as a metal plate with engraved keys captions The four-way navigation key has OK button inserted into it. As for the numeric keypad, it can be reveled only by sliding the Z3 open and shows off bulky buttons with good and, more importantly, noticeable click sensation. The slope of the casing is a unique solution overlook by other companies – thanks to this feature you won’t experience any problems with reaching both the top and the bottom key rows, even people with really big hands won’t end up hitting the slider’s upper part. The keys are evenly lit in white, which is well-visible in various conditions.” Check this nice review here:
