HTC Hero Review

Digitaltrends
22 December 2009
  • 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.

  • 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.

IT PRO
5 August 2009
  • Summary: There are a few little niggles about this handset, such as the jutting lip and the fiddliness of taking pictures with the trackball. But the drawbacks are far outweighed by the multimedia and business centric benefits on offer, not to mention the possibilities the Android Market offer.
