I've had the HTC Hero for a few years now, and I have to say that it has been a fairly enjoyable experience. To start things off, it has HTC Sense, something I would say is a nice modification to the original Android. Sense as I would describe it is basically (at least for the Hero) a completely new GUI. It allows 7 main screens, extra widgets, and as HTC says, is more developed around "you". The phone is easily rootable through the XDA app Universal Androot, which is a big plus for me, but somehow, when you shut your device off, the Hero reverses the root. I'm not sure if this has something to do with my carrier (Alltel) or the actual device, but it can be tiresome to have to reroot your device to turn on WiFi tether. I am a fan of the HTC music app thats on it, it seems to be easier to navigate through than some of the main music apps found on more generic Android phones, but it seems comparable to the Brilliant Corners rom (for Viewsonic's Gtab) music player. Recording voice with the built in voice recorder is pointless due to quality, but I have found that .wav recorders found on the market proves that the built-in microphone can handle high quality recordings, and I have to say, I am impressed by it, and speaking of audio quality, tests show that it in fact, has higher audio quality through headphones (and it does support regular headphones) than most other phones, but to be truthful, I honestly can't tell a difference.

Ok, so far I have been stating the pros, but lets get to the dreaded cons.
First, if your looking for a phone that will make it from 7:00 AM, to 7:00 PM, this is not the phone for you, and if you are using it throughout the day, dont expect it to last to 5:00 PM. I have found though, with constant use, battery life can be as low as 4-5 hours.

I've had this phone since I started my contract with Sprint slightly over a year ago. I love it, but compared to some of the newer phones out there and the operating systems they currently run on this phone seems a bit out dated.

HTC did a great job with what they had to work with at the time. I would recommend this phone to anyone whos looking for a good starter driod. There was a recent Operating System release a few months ago that did improve a bit of the phones functionality going from droid version 1.7 (kind of a guess) to Droid Version 2.1... which is good but not as nice/fast as 2.2.

There are some issues with lag now and then but its completely manageable. HTC makes fantastic phones with very user friendly and nicely designed apps and widgets already installed. My fav would be the time and weather app.. I bought my girlfriend a LG Droid and the only time/weather app on the market close to the one I have from HTC is a pain to setup and lags a bit more then I would like... unless of course you don't mind London's time and weather showing now and then lol.

A great app that only works for select phone makers is called PDA Net. it comes from junefabrics.com and works as a free online tether allowing you to access the internet from your computer by plugging in your phone via USB cable. This has come in handy alot while working on the road or if you have unlimited Data (like what sprint offers) and you dont want to pay internet fees to your cable provider etc.

I still currently have this phone and it is the main reason I will prob only buy HTC phones from here on out (Evo 3D looks fantastic). Hope this review helps someone.

I love it for the price and the features. A small phone with a big impact. I use it as a phone and tablet. I read books, surf the internet, play games and more.
I love the 5.0 camera and im still learning to use all the features.

Purchased for a friends wife to replace a flip phone. She loves it and the phone is still going strong today. Though it is outdated today, works as well now as it did the day she received it.

I bought this phone as replacement for my boyfriend's phone. We have Sprint and his died after only a month. I guess that's what happens when you get the free phone offered at sign up. This phone works just fine, I'm very pleased with the purchase and got a much better deal than anything I could've gotten through Sprint.

If you buy this phone then you are doomed. I bought this phone just a month ago and the next day it was giving me problems. I don't even know what works in this phone. Making a call and texting are just huge tasks. It froze and take time to process to make an urgent phone call. If another call comes while you are on the other line, the phone ceases to function.
IT IS THE WOREST PHONE YOU CAN IMAGINE.

Back when this phone was first released, within the first wave of 'smart'phones, this may have been a pretty decent phone. Nowadays, it is basically a brick. I bought this phone brand new and used it for about a year. The screen does not respond well to anyones fingers. The processor was incredibly slow and would lag just between swiping through the homescreen pages. If I wanted to use the internet or apps with any kind of hurry, the screen would sometimes freeze. Occasionally, I would have to take the battery out (which was near impossible due to the backing piece being almost glued on) just to turn it off. the rolling ball in the middle is the most inefficient thing I've ever seen on a phone. You had to press in on the ball to take photos, making it very hard to take a steady photo. And the camera itself would need at least 3 shots before it would focus and take a proper photo. The picture was always either too bright or too dark, and there is no flash. The video was always very shaky unless the camera is sitting flat on a table, and the audio is very sensitive.
It would never hold a wifi connection for longer than 10 minutes. I would have to turn off the wifi and turn it on again. Sometimes I would even have to turn the whole phone on and off again. the battery lasted maybe half a work day, if I was lucky. A day before I finally had enough money to buy a new phone, the phone froze again, and when I turned it back on the date and time were completely messed up. Not even the sprint store employee could fix it.
Please, if you are low on funds, there are so many better options for the same price. And if you really need a "smart" phone with a touchscreen, go with any other model
