  • Summary: I bought this phone because my old one totally gave out on me after having it for less than a year. I have almost had it for a year and it is still working. It is very slow sometimes. One morning I woke up and it had totally reset itself. So if it weren't for my Google account I would would have lost all my contacts. I only have Google Maps for GPS purposes I feel the poor phone couldn't handle much else.

HTC Hero, falls short of expectations.

  • Summary: I had this phone for two years. By the end of that time I was ready for a new phone. Starting out it was fine, for being an early smartphone. It was slow to process anything, froze constantly. I had it in an outterbox case, it felt burning hot if it was on for a while, or held a long phone call. Reception was average, data speed on the slower side. The trackball was a nice feature in theory but it shown wear after about a year. Peeled.

Can't even perform its basic functions.

  • Summary: To start, I would like to mention that I am comparing this phone against two of it's contemporaries that I have previously owned, the original Palm Pre and an iPhone 3 so it's flaws are not simply based on the age of the device. I would say the most consistent problem I have with the phone is it's inaccurate keyboard. Whether I'm in portrait or landscape mode it just never types what I intend in spite of multiple calibrations and defaulting to factory settings.
  • Pros: Clear display., HTC Sense lends to customization., A great degree of control over settings.
  • Cons: Incredibly slow processor., Inaccurate keyboard., Abysmal battery life., Flimsy case and odd color.

Think twice

  • Summary: I heard great things about HTC, and I looked at their product line with great interest. What I liked most about the Tilt was the slide out keyboard. Very nice feature, and I prefer it over a screen-displayed keyboard. That said, what do I like about it: - Slide out keyboard - Camera quality is top notch. What don't I like about it: - You have to use the pointer stick for practically everything.

I wouldn't buy if I knew...

  • Summary: The good things are self evident. Now for the bad. 1. poor battery life. Buy 3500mah battery & door fixes this problem. 2. not enough volume. In a louder than library environment, on speakerphone or not, it can be difficult to hear. 3. useless preloaded apps cannot be uninstalled. annoying. The phone needs to be rooted in order to remove them. 4. user manual touches on the basics only. But there are forums & youtube videos to help. 5.
