  • Conclusion: When it goes on sale on Oct. 11, the HTC Hero could rescue Sprint – this is easily the best iPhone-like handset the carrier has ever had. But the handset’s biggest drawback is its sluggishness – it doesn’t react as instantaneously as other phones.
  • Pros: HTC Sense Android OS; multi-touch interface; outlook contact/calendar sync; visual voicemail; 3.5mm headphone jack

  • Pros: Camera flaunts touch-only zoom with tap-to-focus. Responsive touch-qwerty more or less comparable to iPhone. Battery lasts for DAYS (36+ hours!). 3.5mm headphone jack. Flash-enabled. Dead-simple USB mounting: Plug in, drag down top menu, and voila, the phone is connected to your PC. Finally, HTC ...

  • Summary: The Hero isn't just another Google phone. Its HTC Sense user interface puts a wealth of information at your fingertips while making this smart phone highly customizable. At $179, the Hero is mostly competing with the Palm Pre and the Apple iPhone 3GS (priced at $149 and $199, respectively).

  • Excerpt: This is HTC’s second Android powered handset to be launched in the country and in quite a short span. In fact they managed to launch two Android handsets before any of their competitors which, in my opinion, is a big deal.
