HTC Hero A6262

Stephen N., Newegg
27 December 2009
  • Summary: HTC has no ability to change the ROM version. New Egg has relegated themselves as inert and unable to assist. the device at the time of purchase was not identified as having this major limitation.
  • Pros: Android OS 1.5 is fast and stable. Screen is clear and smooth.
  • Cons: The Hero I received is an A6262 model which is from the Czech republic. it does not have the marketplace installed. This is a major contra issue. no ability to add apps via the place make the device nearly worthless to a user in a region that has the marketplace available to them.

  • Excerpt: Sorry but mine is going back. Yes the phone does everything, and for a geek like me, its awesome, I wouldn’t recommend this to a non geek. This OS does almost everything you can imagine and them some.
  • Pros: Versitle, Real GPS, tons of Apps, Google Voice Search
  • Cons: Battery Life, Lag(not as bad as some claimed, if you restart/appkill), have to restart or run app killer to free up memory which fills up rather fast!, Dropped calls (my prevous sprint Blackberry dropped very rarley)

It is quite sluggish

George S., Newegg
21 September 2009
  • Pros: Nice to work with and support new OS. Elegant form factor.
  • Cons: You can try all the tweaks, clean the bloat out, reduce widget and add no new ones and this is one VERY sluggish and laggy combination of hardware and software. I would wait for the next model which has GOT to have a stronger set of chips. For background I have used iPhone, Palms WebOS (what a ha...
