HTC Hero smart phone
The HTC Hero has been an object of lust for some time now for gadget enthusiasts. But this new HTC Hero smart phone has seen the potential to go head to head with the iPhone according to some analyst. Is HTC's spit-shine enough to overcome some of the hurdles that have plagued the platform? That question and more is answered in the text below, so read on for the full review. In terms of overall design and layout, the Hero is very much a product of evolution. Overall the appearance is sleek and modern -- it's like the Magic was beamed to the year 3000 for a redesign. The phone has hardware buttons on the base including menu, home, back, send, End, and dedicated search key. It Has a Qualcomm 528MHz CPU, the same 288MB of RAM, and a paltry 512MB ROM. The onboard radios include WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, and a quad-band HSPA cell chip. The 3.2-inch, 480 x 320 capacitive touchscreen works well, but not notably better than its predecessors -- in terms of color and clarity. The Hero's 5 megapixel camera is pretty darn amazing. The images look nice, sharp and clearer and rich and vibrant colors on the screen. It also has a light sensor that adjusts the brightness of the screen automatically with the outside light intensity. As for the battery? We were impressed with the Hero's staying power, On EDGE / WiFi we saw impressive, full day use with a single charge. Standby didn't seem to pull much power. Overall, Battery life was favorable in comparison with the iPhone 3GS.
