1) It only comes with a Southeast-Asia plug adapter (which I believe is the same as they use in the UK). So out of the box, there is no way to charge it in the US, other than via USB. At some point you will probably want to buy a converter plug.
2) There is no Market application installed on it. Therefore, you cannot, with conventional means, install any other applications on this phone. The Android OS that comes with this particular phone is crippled. I managed to root the phone and install a much better Android version on it, but it took me about 6 hours of trial and error and it put me at risk of ruining the phone (drop me a message if you need help rooting your own Hero; I saved my notes from the process).
After fixing number (2) above, yes, the phone is great and it works as expected. There are plenty of reviews out there and I agree with what they say -- the good and the bad. But it takes hours of effort and you must take serious chances to restore this phone to its un-crippled state. That is why I'm giving it only two stars.
1. The plastic is very unique... seems solid like original mac or a medical device. Seems very thick/durable/dense without being heavy.
2. Angled curve ("chin" as people call it) at the bottom good for holding with one hand. This is definitely an advantage over the iPhone, but only comes on the EU versions as of late.
3. Given the placement of the buttons on the chin, this seems like a right handed person's phone.
4. The touch screen has good sensitivity & appearance. Quality is very high, but is a little smaller than iPhone.
5. The phone is smaller than expected.
6. I can see where users' don't want to open in a screen of "just the apps, ma'am". The widgets add a dimension that iPhone doesn't have. "already open & displaying your data" etc.
7. Setup intuitive & easy.
8. No exchange push. It only seems to poll my work exchange account while the iPhone gets push.
9. No timer setting for screen lock options, but unique locking options. I like having a timer on the screen lock & password options.
10. Tactile typing feedback is awesome. iPhone would love this option immediately.
11. In the dark, you have to know which button to press on the chin to bring the phone alive. The lights don't come on under the buttons by pressing any of them.
12. Doesn't display excel made grids in email as well as iPhone
13. Fold ("chin") at the bottom keeps the screen from hitting the desk flat when you lay it on its front.
14. Switching between browser windows on Android 1.5 is more OSX dock than the iPhone!
15. Keeps losing connection to my WIFI access point.Read more ›
The call quality is much better than the G1 or MyTouch. My wife says that I sound much better on the Hero.
The build quality is also top notch. I find that the G1 and the MyTouch feels a little too cheap.
I also like the fact that there is a standard 3.5 headphone jack. On the G1 and MyTouch you still have to use an adapter.
All in all I am happy with this phone. The only downside is the heavy price tag and the 3G does not work on AT&T. The only US version available is the Sprint CDMA.
This is my first time having a phone that isn't ghetto. I got this through Orange the day before it was due to come out in the US, which made me feel quite spiffy. It's meant to be an alternative to the iPhone, and I think it works quite well. I must say, Google has yet to steer me wrong; I'm digging the Android system.
The Hero is very adaptable. For example, I have a variety of home screens set up on my phone. There is the main home screen that has the time, weather, and the main settings like on the picture above. I also have screens that show: my e-mail, text messages, more detailed weather information, one that has main widgets like Google Talk, one for music, and one that has additional widgets I downloaded for free. There are a wide variety of widgets that can be downloaded--I got useful ones like a currency coverter, MSN, Skype, etc, but I also downloaded a lightsabre that makes awesome swishy noises and a Star Trek soundboard, so now whenever I get it a text Worf says "Captain, incoming message."
There are a couple of annoyances and quirks I've found, but I'm not sure if it's due to the phone or the fact that I haven't figured out how to make it easier on myself. It automatically adds EVERYONE to my contact list. A person I e-mailed once about a job? On my phone. Forever. It's annoying. Also, because my contact list is now large and a bit unwieldy, I have to view contact groups, and it takes far too many presses of a button to get to it. Perhaps there is a way to install a shortcut, but I haven't figured it out. Also, sometimes the e-mail screen isn't completely up to date and lags.Read more ›
