  • Summary: It took almost a year, but at last Google's Android operating system seems to have grown up. That's thanks to the HTC Hero, the latest Android-based smartphone, and the first in the U.S. to run on a network other than T-Mobile's.

HTC Hero Review: In Depth

Recombu

  • Excerpt: HTC has a knack for making smart phones and the HTC Hero is possibly one of its best to date. Boasting Google's Android operating system and tonnes of features, is this the iPhone rival we’ve all been waiting for?

  • Conclusion: We’ve been using the Hero for several weeks now to get a good impression of what the device really had to offer. As each day goes buy we are more impressed with the device and its performance. The battery life was our biggest concern, but that issue has been addressed.
  • Pros: Android offers quite a few options, and HTC’s Sense UI gives the user control over almost everything, Great feel and build quality, Responsive display, Very good battery life, Good call quality, Great social network integration
  • Cons: Some lag is still present, We’d have preferred a display with more colors

  • Conclusion: It's hard not to love a Hero, the HTC Hero on Sprint in this case. It's replete with features and those features work well. HTC's customized Android is a joy to use: it's fun, efficient, full-featured and highly customizable.
  • Pros: Great enhanced Android UI that's fun, fast and powerful. Capacitive display.
  • Cons: Needs a reboot every 3 days to keep things speedy.

  • Summary: The Google Android platform is picking up speed. And in less than a year, HTC has shown itself to be a strong supporter of this open source mobile operating system. Our earlier preview got us interested with the Hero's build quality and its now confirmed Teflon coated surface.

  • Conclusion: So, what do you think? Is the HTC Hero the much anticipated fairytale hero? The smartphone of the future? The best Android cell phone to date? It´s only the last statement that holds true, at least in our own lights.
  • Pros: Different, but ergonomic design, Teflon coating that protects the device from scratches and fingerprints, Customizable and intuitive Sense interface, Excellent browser, Facebook and Flickr connectivity and functionality, Handy screen keyboards, Awesome in-call quality
  • Cons: Gets rather sluggish at times, Mediocre camera, Feeble video playback functionality, Bad sound quality through the boxed earphones, Teflon coating only available on the white version

  • Conclusion: Software wise there is very little different between the HTC Hero released in Europe and the HTC bound for American soil (check out our Euro HTC Hero review for more on the UI). Where the difference appears is in the hardware and cosmetic design of the handset.
  • Pros: Android OS, Simple design
  • Cons: Not much
