That thing must be blazing. I've heard that despite the 800 MHz stock clocks the Desire Z/G2 holds the best benchmarks on any mobile, especially when OC'ed.

There is no reason to get it when compared the the DZ or HD2...

They are incredibly fast, I wish I waited another few months to get one. Not that I'm at all unhappy with my desire

Why so?

I'm sort of leaning towards the captivate or HD2 because of significantly lighter weight and not a big need of a physical keyboard.

While the keyboard on the desire z is good, I don't need it that much, I think the added weight is not worth it.

If you want a keyboard, go with the DZ, if you want to tinker go with the HD2. If you want to stay stock... well none of the above, a HTC desire might be the best course of action as its got HTC sense (which a lot of people prefer) which still being able to use other launchers (I think), and its more than fast enough(keeps up with everything else, and would be cheaper than everything but the HD2).

I definitely want to tinker around.
I don't need/want a keyboard so DZ is out.
Captivate is in general superior hardware wise and has SAMOLED, so why should or should not go for the captivate.

I know the HTC has better build quality but a 4" 118gm phone with SAMOLED sounds attractive.

I will be most likely rooting the phone and install custom roms.

So the fact that you use the phone and the main thing you look at is the screen isn't enough of a reason to get it? I don't understand why you would say that. If the hardware is about the same in all of the phones wouldn't you want something that you enjoy looking at? I know I would and that's why I own a beautiful Galaxy S Mesmerize.

Would you ever consider a myTouch 4G? It uses the next gen Snapdragon chipset which makes it faster than all of the mentioned devices.

I greatly prefer my HTC desires screen(AMOLED version) to the galaxy's screen, that is just my opinion though so me going against it may not be the best... the only thing that is superior is the screen though, and HTC's aren't at all far behind (ahead with my desire imo, shame they don't use AMOLED anymore).

Not available everywhere/may not be on his carrier. To put it out there, the best phone we have currently hardware wise is the desire Z, we have no dual core phones at all.
